Tech billionaire Nandan Nilekani will be assisting the government in developing IT infrastructure for the mega National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS), which seeks to cover 10-crore families.

The IT infrastructure for the healthcare scheme will be of a huge scale as was required for Aadhar and will have to be scaled up gradually in view of the massive range of the programme.

The NHPS will require large-scale IT infrastructure for a smooth and effective roll-out as it is aimed at covering over 10 crore poor and vulnerable families (about 50 crore beneficiaries).
