The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission is being implemented in a pilot phase in six Union Territories at present, and it has been rolled out by PM Narendra Modi for entire nation today.
Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik said the Indian system of medicine has been forwarded to people of the country for centuries and its formula has not changed since then.
The Prime Minister's Office said on Thursday that the Ayushman Bharat scheme will ensure universal health coverage.
The Licence Officer of Ayurved department said he will issue Patanjali a notice asking how they got permission to make the kit that claims to treat Coronavirus.
The Minister also said that AYUSH Ministry will clear its stance on Patanjali's 'Coronil and Swasari', claimed to cure Coronavirus, after reviewing the report sent by it.
Ayushman Bharat is the world’s largest health insurance scheme and was launched by the Narendra Modi government in 2018.
'In the past three years, the BJP government in the state has succeeded in changing the perception of the state.

The Ministry of AYUSH said Unani Medicines are useful in the symptomatic treatment of Coronavirus infection.
Nearly 1,200 cases of fraud have been confirmed and action has been taken against 338 hospitals, he said, asserting that the government has zero-tolerance towards corruption.
