OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Storage of CGHS Card on DigiLocker platform for its access and use for CGHS Services

Central Government Health Scheme, in alignment with its vision of being the first choice in providing quality healthcare services and ensuring holistic well-being across clients entire life span, has found it imperative to adopt new technology and innovations in the delivery of quality healthcare.

In continuation of the these measures, it has now been decided to provide an option to store CGHS Card in DigiLocker. DigiLocker is a secure cloud based platform for storage, sharing and verification of government issued documents & certificates. It is available as a mobile application for both Android and iOS devices. Through DigiLocker Platform a CGHS beneficiary would be able to download his/her CGHS card on the mobile device.

The downloaded CGHS card shall be equivalent to the original CGHS card as per the provisions of Rule 9A of the Information Technology Rules, 2016, notified on February 8, 2017 via G.S.R. 714(E).

CGHS beneficiaries would need to download the DigiLocker App and login using their Aadhar and mobile number. A beneficiary can access only his own CGHS card at a time. In case his mobile number linked with his Aadhar is also linked with his dependent(s) Aadhar, then he will be able to access his dependents CGHS card too, only after fresh login to DigiLocker.

The steps invotved for registering on DigiLocker and Application and Downloading the CGHS cards may be seen at the Annexure attached.

(Dr Nikhilesh Chandra)
Director, CGHS
