The state government’s CGTeeka web portal has been developed on the basis of social and geographical conditions in the state, the statement added.
“48 per cent of the people under BPL, Antyodaya, and destitute category do not have a mobile phone. And so because of the compulsory system of online registration for corona vaccination, people of BPL, Antyodaya and destitute class may get deprived of the vaccination. To rectify this problem, the Chhattisgarh government and CHIPS have developed CGTeeka web portal, which would provide the facility of registration through the help desk team,” said the Chief Minister on the occasion.
He congratulated the officials of CHIPS for developing this web portal for Corona vaccination in Chhattisgarh in such a short span of time. The convenience of every section of society has been kept in mind while developing this web portal. People will get accurate information about the place and time of vaccination through this web portal, said the Chief Minister.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollution, waste management, plastic ban, manual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene.
