                              ऐसा ऑनलाइन कसौटीबद्ध अभियान को स्थापित करना, संचालित करना और ट्रैक करना आसान है। अन्य सभी रास्तों के विपरीत, इसमें कोई पात्रता/मानदंड नहीं है, और सिर्फ आपको ये बुनियादी ज्ञान की जरुरत है कि आपकी कहानी को बताने के लिए इंटरनेट का उपयोग कैसे करें ?

Other Concessions | अन्य रियायतें

इसके अलावा, उपचार के उद्देश्य के लिए ट्रेन और हवाई यात्रा के पे 50% छूट का दावा किया जा सकता है

The government provides railway and air concession to the patients to travel for the purpose of medical checkup/treatment. Travel fare for the patient is free in railways, and the person accompanying the patient has to pay only 25 percent of the actual II class fare. In the case of traveling by air, the patient has to pay 50% of the basic fare of the normal economy class.

            Other than these, many income tax reliefs are also available for the cancer patients. You can download Tax relief form here
