Pm Modi Statement – Addressing a rally in Saharanpur last month, Modi had said: “Can my doctor friends do one thing? On the 9th of every month, if any poor pregnant women comes to them, they should give her free treatment. Our poor mothers sometimes die during childbirth. If our doctors give 12 days in 12 months to the cause — the 9th of every month — no doctor will suffer a major loss. If people can give up gas subsidy, doctors can also give 12 days to poor mothers.”

- Under Pregnancy Aid Scheme Money will be directly transferred to bank accounts.
