Punjab Specialized Healthcare and Medical Education Department has issued instructions to all families across Punjab to complete immediate registration of their families with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) for ‘Naya Pakistan Sehat Card’ for free treatment up to Rs1 million to all citizens.
The Punjab government has conveyed that the free treatment facility will be available to 30 million families in 36 districts of Punjab.
They will be able to go to any major hospital in Pakistan and get free treatment for their relatives.
Families whose data is not registered with NADRA should immediately register their family, wife and children's data.

Young people who are newly married should also immediately register their and their spouse's data in their new family.
Afzal Ali, a youth who came to NADRA office Murree Road, said that he got married on December 2 this month and has learned about the government's health card project, so he and his wife applied for separate family data and new identity cards.
NADRA sources said that previously, married couples used to enter new family data after having two or three children, but now registrations have started right after marriages take place.
