The scheme will now be expanded to include families whose annual income is less than Rs 2 lakh and the financial aid given has also been increased from Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 5 lakh.

"The annual family income limit of Rs 1 lakh has been enhanced to Rs 2 lakh for being eligible for DAK aid. We will also raise the upper limit of assistance from Rs 1.5 lakh for heart, cancer and kidney diseases to Rs 5 lakh or 100 per cent of the estimated cost of treatment, whichever is less", Dikshit said, adding that her government has approved a 200-bed hospital costing more than Rs 200 crore in Burari in north Delhi.
