The Government has arranged for free Covid-19 testing at approved laboratories across India. Although the test is not free in private labs and hospitals, the Supreme Court has said that free testing should be done for the poor who are eligible under the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana. Beneficiaries of this scheme can access free testing in private labs and Covid-19 treatment at government empanelled hospitals.
To get tested free of cost, a person can go to any government hospital. They can get updated information by calling the helpline numbers before getting a test done. Please see here for the list of government and private clinics for testing of Covid-19, as released by the Indian Council of Medical Research.
