The Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) card is issued to the central government employees and pensioners and their family members. The eligible family members include spouse, dependent children up to the age of 25 years, dependent parents, and unmarried daughters.

If your father or mother was a government employee, you can get the benefits as stated above.

There is no such medical card in vogue. Your friend can seek assistance from philanthropic/charitable institutions or Government Hospitals/Institutions.
