    Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy is currently in Delhi, where he is working to secure funding for upcoming challenges, such as implementing loan waiver schemes. On Tuesday, he met with Union Health Minister J P Nadda to request the release of Rs 693 crore in pending dues under the National Health Mission (NHM) to the state. The delay in reimbursement has caused financial challenges for the state government.

    Revanth informed Nadda that Rs 323.73 crore were pending for the third and fourth quarters of NHM 2023-2024, and he also asked for a Rs 138-crore grant for the first quarter of 2024-2025. Additionally, he requested reimbursement of Rs 231.40 crore for the year 2023-2024 under the infrastructure and management component of NHM.
