“Our Government is leaving no stone unturned to realise the dream of a Swasth Bharat. We want to ensure that every citizen has access to affordable healthcare facilities.” –Narendra Modi

Development works in Varanasi have gained momentum under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership. Kashi is now being rejuvenated. Projects are being delivered on time. Numerous initiatives have been undertaken to enhance the health sector. In the last two and half years, 1200 crore rupees have been spent in healthcare sector.

Prime Minister Modi dedicated a 334 bed trauma centre in Banaras Hindu University. The trauma centre, built with a corpus of Rs. 146.60 crore, would provide round the clock free checkups and treatments for patients. The per-bed grant for 334 beds of trauma centre has been increased from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 2 lakh. Also, Rs. 103 crore has been dedicated towards telemedicine.

In order to facilitate patients, the number of beds in Sir Sunderlal Hospital has been increased from 1200 to 1500.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone of the 250-bed Centenary Super Specialty Complex at IMS costing Rs. 200 crores.

The Prime Minister sanctioned Rs 50 lakhs for free treatment of critical diseases to the BPL card holders from the National Health Fund. This would ensure availability of affordable medicines under the Amrit scheme.

The city of Varanasi has been nominated as the first-ever SCO Tourism and Cultural Capital during the period 2022-2023 at the 22nd Meeting of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Council of Heads of State in Samarkand, Uzbekistan on September 16, 2022. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had participated in the Summit.

The nomination of Varanasi as the first ever SCO Tourism and Cultural Capital will promote tourism, cultural and humanitarian exchanges between India and the SCO member Countries. It also underlines India’s ancient civilizational links with Member States of SCO, especially the Central Asian Republics.

Under the framework of this major cultural outreach program, a number of events will be hosted in Varanasi during 2022-23, for which guests will be invited to participate from SCO Member States. These events are expected to attract Indologists, scholars, authors, musicians and artists, photo journalists, travel bloggers and other invited guests.

The regulations for nomination of the SCO Tourism and Cultural Capital were adopted at the Dushanbe SCO Summit in 2021 with an objective of promoting cooperation between the SCO Member States in the field of culture and tourism.
