India is a rapidly developing country, and has been going through a major epidemiological transition over the past 25 years. As per the India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative, every state of India now has a higher burden from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries than from infectious diseases. Inspired by Sustainable Development Goal vision, mitigating the effect of NCDs will demand a comprehensive approach based on preventive, promotive, and curative cum rehabilitative services. Apart from the community-based approach, another key announcement made in the union budget of India, 2018–19, was the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (ABY) that intend to transform the primary, secondary, and tertiary health care system in India. In this article, we intend to analyze the scope of services offered through ABY at different levels of public health care, and possible constraints in realizing the goal of universal health coverage in terms of NCDs.
