The ambitious RVY scheme is the first-of-its-kind in India, which is fully funded by the Central Government. This Central Sector Scheme (CSS) is expected to benefit 5,20,000 Senior Citizens over a period of the 3 years. The scheme will be implemented through the sole implementing agency ‘Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation (ALIMCO)’, which will undertake one year free maintenance of the aids & assisted living devices.
