The Punjab Government on 16 November 2010 announced its decision to set up a corpus fund to help Below Poverty Line families to get free medical treatment and health care facilities in private super specialty hospitals. The decision was taken at the eighth meeting of the Board of Directors of Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA). The government took this decision because medical and health care facilities had become inaccessible to poor people because of extremely high charges.


GMADA (Greater Mohali Area Development Authority) decided to contribute to this fund 20 percent of the amount it earned from the auction of land.


GMADA also approved the plan to allot land for the construction of Multi-storey flats in the cities under the policy Housefed Punjab. GMADA also approved the plan to develop drainage system for rainwater.
