Family insurance scheme for disability caused due to mishap
D.N.I.S. News Network – The Haryana Government recently launched a family insurance scheme for residents of the state, which provides cover to victims in case of accident or injury resulting in physical disability.
Bona fide residents of Haryana, aged between 18 and 60, can enjoy the benefits of the scheme. Concerned officials stated that the scheme would be implemented by the Social Welfare Department, with the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (S.D.M.) as the nodal officer.
In case of death or total disability of a person in an accident, the Government will pay an amount of Rs. 1 lakh to the kin of the deceased or to the victim. The loss of two limbs or both eyes, or one limb and one eye make the victim eligible for a compensation of Rs. 50,000. If a person loses one limb or one eye in the mishap, the amount will be limited to Rs. 25,000.
As already mentioned, the beneficiary should be a resident of the state holding a valid ration card, and should figure in the voters’ list.
