Bhattacharya said, "The decision would be implemented from October 2, 2015. The drugs would be available in state-run hospitals. The day of commencement of the program coincides with the 146th birth anniversary of the father of the nation - Mahatma Gandhi."

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier posted on social media platform Facebook, "After our huge success of fair-price medicine shops and diagnostic centers, the state government would soon make treatment of all types of cancer, cardiac problems and blood disorders completely free in state government-run hospitals and medical colleges."
