The first 48 hours are critical to the life of any emergency patient. Therefore, CM Yogi’s decisions are implemented on the ground and it is suggested to provide free treatment to patients within the first 48 hours. As a result, those patients who are alone or have relatives with them, but there is no immediate provision of sufficient funds, besides them, the general public will also benefit.
