About Sampurna Scheme in Odisha 

Under SAMPurNA scheme, Odisha govt.will support pregnant women in inaccessible villages to reach nearby hospitals for institutional delivery. The state govt. will extend a helping hand to pregnant women in villages where ambulance can not reach. Since any ambulance or four wheeler can not reach these villages, pregnant women in such areas would be provided Rs. 1,000 each to reach hospital for delivery.

The village development committees have been entrusted with the responsibility to ensure that the women have reached hospital safely. The women will get the transportation cost and Janani Suraksha assistance deposited in their respective bank accounts. 

Also, villages would be provided stretchers to carry pregnant women from their homes to the accessible points where ambulance or any vehicle can reach. Since the credit for the achievement in reducing the IMR below the national average goes to all Gaon Kalyan Samiti (GKS), they should hold themselves accountable for failure of SAMPurNA scheme.
