Eligibility for Ayushman Bharat Search Results

a) Mobile number/Ration Card Number: An Additional Data Collection Drive (ADCD) was conducted on 30th April 2018 at Gram Sabha’s across India to capture active mobile number and ration card number of a family of the Socio-Economic Caste Census (SECC) database. If the individual got his/her Mobile number or Ration card number captured during this drive, only then it will show results on the portal. If the individual got his details captured during the ADCD drive and still no results are displayed, then the “SECC Name” option should be used for searching.

b) SECC Name: An individual can search if he/she is eligible for PMJAY using his details as per the SECC database such as Name, Father’s Name, Gender, State etc. Even now, if no results are displayed, then the user should contact a nearby Ayushmaan Mitra.

c) RSBY URN: Additionally, all active families that are enrolled under RSBY (till 31st March, 2018) that do not feature in the targeted groups as per SECC data will be included as well and can identify if they are eligible for PMJAY using RSBY URN.
