ESI extending its scope to workers in unorganized sector

The leading News item in Malayala Manorama and Mathrubhumi, two vernacular dailies of Malayalam today, i.e., 08th August 2015 is about ESI extending its scope to the workers of unorganized sectors like Auto drivers, Construction Workers, Cycle Rikshaw pullers, Anganwadi Asha Workers etc. It is a great move as neither public health nor private players in helath sector act proactively for those helpless category especially when they end up in chronic diseases. Thanks to ESI and the Government for the initiative and to Malayala Manorama & Mathrubhumi for their worthy carrying the news. However, the irony is that mainstream National dailies seldom notice these to find space in their newspapers.
