People from Patiala and nearby regions flocked to a free screening camp organized by Columbia Asia Hospital in high numbers on 8th and 9th of this month for medical consultation, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders.

The camp was organized not only to treat patients but also to spread awareness and educate people about these disorders.

Doctors provided free medical consultation from morning 9 AM to 1:30 AM on over 15 neurological disorders, including stroke, brain hemorrhage, epilepsy, migraine, vertigo, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, neurotoxic diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and many others

“People have come in good numbers. Doctors have provided free consultation to 105people in the past two days. Neurological disorders are associated with social stigma and it is difficult for people to come out in open and go for medical consultation. Therefore, it felt all the more good to see people coming out of their closets and discuss their problems” said Dr. Satwant Sachdeva, Consultant Neurologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Patiala.

Around 3 crore people in India suffer from neurological disorders, with an approximate prevalence of 2400 people per lakh population. Although there seems to be lack of data on a number of neurological disorders in Patiala, but an independent study published in 2015 for epilepsy, reported prevalence of over 7 persons per 1000 people,  while it showed a crude incidence rate of around 60 per  lakh population. In the given scenario, people need to be more aware of various neurological disorders prevalent so that they can go for the proper treatment and help those who are suffering from these diseases.

HDFC Life launches HDFC Life Pension Guaranteed plan

HDFC Life, one of India’s leading life insurance companies, today announced the launch of HDFC Life Pension Guaranteed Plan, a single premium annuity product. This product is the only-one-of-its-kind which offers guaranteed deferred annuity rates for a life-time, right at the time of purchase.

When individuals think of long-term financial planning, they often neglect the most crucial aspect, that of retirement planning. It is only when one gets closer to their fifties or crosses their fifties that he/ she starts thinking about retirement. With improvement in healthcare facilities, the quality of life has gone up and so has the longevity. In this scenario, it is necessary to ensure that one is able to live a comfortable life after retirement.

In the absence of social security, annuity plans are the safest and most preferred means of regular income for retired individuals. In case of Immediate Annuity plans prevalent today, one starts receiving regular payments right after purchasing the product. This is suitable for individuals who are closer to retirement age or have retired. Deferred annuity options prevalent today, are usually opted for by those who want to plan in advance for their retirement. In case of Deferred Annuity, the rate is as per the prevailing rates during the time the annuity starts.

In the current scenario of market volatility and decreasing interest rates, it is difficult to predict what the annuity rates will be, let us say, 10 years from today.

HDFC Pension Guaranteed Plan offers the unique benefit of guaranteed annuity rates for a deferred annuity plan, at the time of purchase itself. The plan rewards those who plan in advance for the long-term by offering higher annuity rates. One can purchase the plan and choose to receive the annuity, say 10 years later. However, the rate of the annuity to be given 10 years later will be fixed right at the time when the policy is purchased, i.e. today. This comes with the return of purchase price to ensure that one can leave a corpus behind for their loved ones. Read more
