Modi government's new scheme: up to one lakh in road accidents will be treated for free

The central government said on Wednesday that it has drawn up a plan to implement the cashless treatment scheme for contingency insurance. According to information sent to the state transport secretary and commissioners, the scheme will provide an insurance cover of Rs 2 lakh per case. This scheme is important, because India has 5 lakh road accidents annually, the highest in the world. About 1.5 lakh people are killed and 2 lakh people are injured in such accidents.

Auto accident fund will be formed
According to the ministry, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has prepared a roadmap to implement a scheme for cashless treatment of motor accident victims, which has been incorporated into the Motor Vehicles Act, 2019. This includes treating victims in times of crisis. In this regard, the Ministry of Transport has written a letter to the Chief Secretaries of all States and Union Territories and the Secretaries in charge of Transport, seeking consideration of the concept note of the scheme by the 10th of this month. The plan also includes creating a vehicle accident fund.

Objective of providing compulsory insurance cover to people using road
The National Health Authority's PM Jan Arogya Yojana has been entrusted with the responsibility of implementing the scheme as a nodal agency and in more than 21,000 hospitals across the country. The ministry further said that the scheme aims to provide compulsory insurance cover to all road users in the country.
