Chandigarh, Sep 10 (UNI) The Employees State Insurance (ESI) Corporation in Haryana has revised its expenditure ceiling limit from Rs 750 per insured person per annum to Rs 900 per insured person per annum.

A spokesman of the Haryana Health Department today said the government had also enhanced the plan ceiling of the Department from Rs one crore to Rs 1.5 crore, as one-eighth state share. The Department had made a provision of around Rs 12.51 crore for procuring drugs and dressings etc for the insured persons and their families during the current financial year as against Rs 6.84 crore last year.

All ESI hospitals, dispensaries and Directorate along with the ESI Corporation headquarters would be provided with broadband connectivity and this project was likely to be completed within next four months, he added.

He said the Department would ensure free supply of all types of medicines to the insured persons.
