Background: One of the achievements of National Health Mission is in improving the basic transport and ambulances for pregnant women which are operating under dial 108/102 emergency transport system (EMS) in the form of ambulances. Although, 108 is predominantly designed to attend patients of critical care, trauma and accident victims, state governments consider 108 services to be the mainstay of transport for pregnant women in both normal labour and emergency whereas 102 services exclusively cater the needs of pregnant women and sick newborn.

Present research work aimed to study free transport component entitled under JSSK scheme.
