Evolis printers have issued 34+ million health cards within the scope of the RSBY healthcare program in India 


Evolis, France, April 11, 2013. Evolis, the leading manufacturer of solutions for plastic card personalization, announces that this major program will now benefit from the user-friendly features and premium performances offered by the Primacy printer.


The Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY)  is a unique scheme launched by the Government of India in 2008, in partnership with hospitals and insurance companies, and with the goal to provide healthcare to citizens. Initially envisaged as a scheme for people below the poverty line, it has been extended to include construction workers, domestic workers, street vendors, railway porters, and more. It is expected that the scheme will ultimately cover more than 100 million families over the coming years.

This program leverages a smart card that is personalized to each holder. As of the end of 2012, more than 34 million of such cards were delivered throughout India, as the program continuously expands to new states of the Indian Union.

This successful project leverages the reliability of Evolis printers and the expertise of Rajpurohit Cardtec, Evolis’ distributor in India. More than 5,000 Evolis printers are today deployed and supported in multiple Indian cities and villages, to ease the enrolment of beneficiaries and deliver personal health cards at their doorsteps. As Evolis is renewing and enhancing its range of printers, the Primacy printer will be introduced to print and encode the RSBY health cards.

Primacy is a high-end and robust printer that is even more easy-to-use, flexible and fast. When loaded with the Evolis cutting-edge encoding technologies, Primacy turns into the ideal solution to issue cards. Primacy supports any requirement in card printing and encoding, in medium to large runs. This is the perfect option to deliver transportation passes, payment cards, identification badges, as well as multi-feature cards.
