As announced in the cabinet committee meeting which was led by chief minister Basavaraj Bommai, 438 clinics will be established throughout the state including within BBMP limits. They will function in areas where there is no primary health care centre. Primary health care centres will look after these clinics.

Speaking at the press conference after the meeting, law and parliamentary affairs minister J C Madhuswamy said, “As per the announcement in the budget, administrative approval is given to open Namma Clinics at a cost of Rs 155.77 crore under a grant from 15th finance commission. 438 clinics will be established. Every clinic will have one medical officer, one nurse and second division assistants on a contract basis.”

“Due to the formation of Namma Clinics, the load on government hospitals will reduce. In addition, people will get good health care at the local level. These clinics will be established in various parts of Karnataka including all wards of BBMP,” added Madhuswamy.

Mohalla Clinic was started by the Aam Aadmi government in Delhi after it assumed power. It will give health care at the ward level in cities and towns, apart from the already existing government hospitals and primary health care centres. The intention is to reduce the load on government hospitals and better service for people at a local level.
