This was announced recently this week by the Minister for Health and Horticulture, Mr Sham Lal Sharma. Addressing a press conference in Jammu, he said, 'Insurance cover to the tune of Rs 30,000 has been made available to each of the 66,000 poor families. They have only to register by paying a nominal registration fee of Rs 30.' He added that the state government was planning a scheme to cover the remaining poor families in the next three months.
