Once you know that you’re eligible for the Ayushman Bharat Yojana Scheme, you can work towards getting an e-card. This card is also known as the Ayushman Bharat Yojana Golden Card. Before this card is issued to a beneficiary, government officials verify the identity of the person at a PMJAY kiosk. This is done with the help of a document like an Aadhar Card or Ration Card. The family identification proofs can include a government certified list of members, RSBY Card and a PM Letter. After the verification is complete, the e-card is printed along with the unique AB-PMJAY ID.
You can also get your Ayushman Bharat Yojana Golden Card online. To get the PMJAY Golden Card, you can follow these steps:

Step 2: Enter the CAPTCHA code and generate the OTP.
Step 3: Opt for the HHD Code.
Step 4: Provide the HHD code to the CSC (Common Service Centre) to check the HHD code and other details.
Step 5: The CSC representatives, who are also known as Ayushman Mitras will complete the remaining process.
Step 6: After the process is completed, you will have to pay Rs. 30 to get your Ayushman Bharat Yojana Card.
The Ayushman Bharat Yojana Card has made the process of getting treatment through the PMJAY scheme cashless and paperless. When the patient is availing treatment at an empaneled hospital, he/she will need to show their e-card.
