According to The Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, the proposed course is likely to be introduced in the states that are willing to adopt it from academic 2013-14. This new cadre of health professionals in community health programmes will boost the rural medicare infrastructure in the country.

This course will be a three-and-a -half-year Bachelor of Rural Healthcare course, BSc (Community Health), and those that successfully complete this course can seek employment as Community Health Officers (CHOs) in rural India.
