Road Accident Victims will soon get cashless treatment worth Rs 2.5 lakh.

NEW DELHI: Modi Government is planning to launch a cashless treatment facility for road accident victims soon. 2.5 lakhs worth treatment will be given to each case under this scheme. 

About five lakh road accidents occur every year around the country. This is a very high number compared to any other country in the world. Considering these figures, this project is of immense importance. Every year about one and a half lakh people lose their lives in road accidents and more than three lakh people end up with disabilities.

The Motor Vehicle Accident Fund will be created under this scheme for cashless treatment, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a letter to state transport secretaries and commissioners on Tuesday. The government has said that the National Health Authority (NHA) and Strong IT Infrastructure will be used to provide cashless treatment to road accident victims.

The government says that the victims of road accidents will be provided financial assistance through the bank account for trauma and health services, which will be set up under MoRTH for the implementation of the scheme.

There are vehicles insured by insurance companies through the medium of general insurance councils, and to ensure that they also contribute to hit and run cases. In addition, the Ministry will contribute to unlicensed vehicles and accidents. In addition, vehicle owners will have to pay the cost of treatment as part of the compensation in the case of uninsured vehicles. The PMJA is being implemented in 32 States / Union Territories out of 36 and the project will benefit around 13 crore households.
