Ranchi, September 22: The media staff in Jharkhand will soon be covered by a health insurance plan.

The director of the department of information and public relations, Jharkhand, Shashi Prakash Singh, after a meeting with representatives of the media at the Suchna Bhawan in Ranchi, said that the chief minister, Hemant Soren, wants to provide health insurance to the media staff. .

“The government has promised to provide health insurance for media personnel and the prime minister is very interested in it,” Shashi Prakash Singh said of the draft media health insurance plan.

The director of the IPRD also said that the draft of the policy is being prepared after consulting with the entire media fraternity.

“In this sense, representatives of two insurance companies have also been summoned, which are doing the work of health insurance for media personnel in neighboring states. We invite people in the media to share their suggestions regarding the insurance company or the terms of the insurance with management. Soon the health insurance policy will be prepared based on the opinion of the journalists and will be discussed before it is finally implemented, ”said the IPRD director.

At the same time, emphasis was placed on connecting journalists from regional areas, including the city, with the insurance plan. Along with this, it was also suggested to increase the insurance amount up to Rs 10 lakh.
