 Arogyashree Scheme will provide health care to the weaker sections, economically backward and those who are below poverty line. This scheme will facilitate major surgeries for heart diseases, cancer and kidney etc.

 Modern medicine, with its advancement in technology has made rapid strides in diagnosis and treatment of many a complicated disease, hitherto unattended thus reducing the morbidity and mortality enormously and improving quality of life. While advent of non-invasive diagnostic tools like CT Scan, MRI, Ultra Sound and radio isotope studies made diagnosis of disease more specific, the latest gadgets such as video endoscopes, laproscope etc. made treatment and surgical procedures less cumbersome and simple.

 Hence there is a felt need in the State to provide medical assistance to families living below poverty line for the treatment of serious ailments such as cancer, kidney failure, heart and neurosurgical diseases etc., requiring hospitalization and surgery. Available network of government hospitals do not have the requisite equipment or the facility or the specialist pool of doctors to meet the state wide requirement for the treatment of such diseases. Large proportions of people, especially below poverty line borrow money or sell assets to pay for hospitalization. Presently many people suffering from such diseases are approaching the Government to provide financial assistance to meet hospitalization expenses for surgical procedures.During the period from 14.05.2004 to 26.06.2007, financial assistance to a tune of Rs. 168.52crores has been provided from CM\s Relief Fund in 55361 cases to meet hospitalization expenses for such people. From the experience gained, it is now felt that the assistance could be institutionalized so that its benefit can be accessed by poor people across the State easily and in a trouble free manner. Health Insurance could be a way of removing the financial barriers and improving access of poor to quality medical care; of providing financial protection against high medical expenses; and negotiating with the providers for better quality care.

 In order to operate the scheme professionally in a cost effective manner, public private partnership will be promoted between the Insurance Company / TPA, the private sector hospitals and the State agencies. "Aarogyasri Health Care Trust" recently setup by the State Government for the implementation of the Scheme will assist the insurance company / TPA / Beneficiaries and coordinate with Medical and Health Deptt., District Collectors, Civil Supplies Department etc.

 To improve access of BPL families to quality medical care for treatment of diseases involving hospitalization and surgery through an identified network of health care providers. In the initial phase, the scheme would provide coverage for the following system.

 INDIRAMMA (Integrated Novel Development in Rural Areas and Model Municipal Areas):

 The INDIRAMMA scheme is intended to provide basic amenities to one-third of villages and one-third of wards in the urban areas...

 Hon. Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy launched the historic INDIRAMMA programme to create a novel rural/urban Andhra Pradesh through development of villages and municipalities in an integrated manner.

 Government has been implementing many programmes over the years for development of infrastructure and on individual welfare. Since there is always a universal aspiration of all the people to be part of this developmental process, the impact of the programmes implemented so far is not quite visible due to the scattered nature of the distribution of the resources. As of now, there is hardly any objective, equitable and verifiable criteria in selection of towns and villages while implementing the programmes. An ad-hoc allocation of money for various programmes has come into vogue instead of using village as a unit for integrated planning. Even while sanctioning programmes and welfare measures all the genuine requirements of the villages/towns are not being considered, resulting in avoidable dissatisfaction among the public. Thus the approach is open ended and not focused.

 Keeping the above in view, Andhra Pradesh Government has taken a decision to take up development of model villages and towns with an intention to saturate certain identified basic needs of the people and the village/town Infrastructure In an integrated and focused manner.This is planned to be achieved in a period of three years.

 This new model of development is named as "INDIRAMMA" (Integrated Novel Development in Rural Areas & Model Municipal Areas) to fulfill the dreams of our former Prime Minister, Smt, Indira Gandhi. The objective of this programme is to saturate the basic needs in respect of the identified activities in all the Villages and Towns over a period of Three years. Such development model will ensure overall development of the Villages/Towns in a transparent manner covering additional areas every year. This process will remove the uncertainty and skepticism in certain quarters with regard to coverage of all eligible beneficiaries and the infrastructure needs since all the villages/towns are covered over a period of three years.

 The primary aim of this programme is to provide in every village pucca houses, drinking water supply, individual sanitary latrines, drainage, power supply to every household, Road facilities for transport, pensions to eligible old age persons, weavers, widows and the disabled, primary education to all, special nutrition to adolescent girls/pregnant and lactating women and better health facilities in all the villages over a period of three years in a saturation mode, This shall improve the living standards of the people significantly.

 This programme will be taken up in all the mandals simultaneously. Taking up Gram Panchayats covering one third of the population in the mandal every year, all the Gram Panchayats will be covered over a period of three years. 8026 Gram Panchayats have been selected for the first phase of the programme starting on 1st April 2006 and the remaining Gram Panchayats will be covered during subsequent two years. Government is ready to launch the programme from 1st April 2006 and Gram Sabhas will be held in the selected Gram Panchayats from 6th February 2006 to give details of the specific activities to be taken up in the village under the programme.

 Jalayagnam, as the word speaks is a ritual for water conservation. It has been implemented by Hon. Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy as a election promise to the cultivating people of state to bring 82 lakh acres under irrigation in five years. This project accords the highest priority for the development of irrigation infrastructure, particularly in backward and drought prone areas by taking up this program in a big way. Jalayagnam includes a number of irrigation projects by construction of reservoirs and lift irrigation systems for lifting water from major rivers, particularly from Godavari to provide immediate irrigation benefits.

 Jalayagnam programme to complete 32 major and 17 medium irrigation projects at a cost of Rs. 65,000 crores to provide irrigation to an extent of 71 lakh acres besides stabilization of an existing ayacut of 21.32 lakh acres while providing drinking water to a population of 1.2 crore and generating power to the tune of 2700 MW. Eight of these projects were to be completed before the kharif season of 2006.

 The irrigation development was almost stagnant for the last decade and the previous governments were more concentrating on hi-tech and neglecting agriculture sector on which approximately 70% of the population depends. The fact that 26% of the population, mostly in rural areas, was living below the poverty line made him think whether science and technology had made a significant difference to the quality of life in rural areas compared to towns and cities. Also the suicides of many farmers from the state made Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy to give more significance and concentrate on the irrigation sector. Having recognized the importance of the agricultural sector for faster economic development, Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy started concentrating largely on its development and introduced several schemes for the benefit of the farmers among which is Jalayagnam project.

 In the past 50 years, a total ayacut of 65 lakh acres was developed in the State. Jalayagnam, is expected to double the area under irrigation. Jalayagnam in Andhra Pradesh would constitute a major component of the Central government programme National Irrigation Mission\s (NIM) target of bringing one crore hectares of land ( 2.5 crore acres) in the country under the plough.

 The large allocation of funds for irrigation as the government considers irrigation an important growth engine. The most expensive of the projects are the lift irrigation projects intended to irrigate the dry Telangana region and supply water to the Anantapur-Ongole-Mehaboobnagar area which is "turning into a desert". With the land level being 300 metre above the water level, lift irrigation is supposed to be the only way out to take water to the dry region. Currently, 3,000 tmc water from Godavari is wasted into the sea as the land is at a higher elevation.For the first time in the post-independence era, the Congress government took up linking of Godavari and Krishna by constructing Indira Sagar Project and Rajiv Sagar project across River Godavari.By executing projects like Rajiv Sagar, Indira Sagar flood flow canal, SRSP Phase-II and so on, 21 lakh acres of parched land in Telangana region would be made fertile.

 Rajiv Gruha Kalpa:

 For low-income urban population, government has launched an innovative housing scheme, Rajiv Gruha Kalpa, with civil infrastructure and free land being provided by government. The government will provide Rs.30,000 towards the cost of land development charges. The beneficiaries should contribute 10 per cent of the remaining Rs.70,000. The rest of the amount would be arranged in the form of loans from banks.

 Andhra Pradesh has taken giant leaps forward in the field of economic development. The Stateâ??s growing stature has an IT hub has lead to sky-rocketing property prices. Due to this, the middle class population in the State is finding it increasingly difficult to acquire houses and apartments.

 The affluent class has the resources to obtain and build residential property, and the Government is providing housing facilities for the poor in the State. But, the middle class often feel unattended. To address this problem, the Government is launching a housing programme called â??Rajiv Swagruhaâ?�. This programme will enable middle class families to own houses in urban areas. The housing scheme will have Integrated Townships in approved layouts. The townships would encompass best infrastructure facilities, with high quality construction.
