A total of 11 mobile therapy vans were flagged off by the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on 10 August. The vans will be providing basic medical facilities to elderly people, widows and other sections who would be in need of social security.

While launching “Buniyadi Sanjivani Sewa” at a function, the Chief Minister flagged off the mobile therapy vans in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and Minister for Social Welfare Manju Varma.

According to the report by The Indian Express, the vans stocked with the basic medical equipment’s would be accompanied by a technical team that will provide basic essential medical care to widows, elderly people, the differently-abled in the districts including Bhagalpur, Begusarai, Buxar, Muzaffarpur, Nawada, Purnea, Nalanda, Patna, Rohtas, Darbhanga and Samastipur.

The next phase of the project is 101 Buniyad Sewa Kendra – basic service centers that would be opened in all sub-divisions. As per the official statement announced in Patna, the mobile therapy van is an outcome of a joint project of the World Bank and the government of Bihar, run by the social welfare department. The statement further added that the work of setting up of 87 similar centers is in progress.


The Logical Indian welcomes the move by the Bihar government to offer medical assistance to senior citizens, widows and the differently-abled. These sections of the society are often neglected and the government’s decision to offer them separate medical assistance is appreciated.
