The government has launched many schemes so that people can be motivated to use hospital facility for delivery but callousness and lack of monitoring by the health department are not helping its cause. At least a dozen government schemes like Janani Shishu Suraksha Yojna and Shubh Dhanlakshmi Yojna have been implemented but despite facility of free delivery at government hospitals, people in Dungarpur seem to prefer home delivery.

CHANGING PANORAMA OF PRIORITIES The EWRs who are barely halfway into their term have ensured that the panchayats are no longer limited to construction works.
