Delhi Government has mandated that people who help road accident victims will be awarded a sum of INR 2,000. The move came after long discussions with various authorities to help prevent & reduce interaction with various officers of the law.
30 Second Window:
- The citizen concerned will also be given a certificate of appreciation in recognition of the good Samaritan effort.
- Manish Sisodia, Honourable Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi tweeted as an official statement to all citizens and officers concerned.
- In 2015 alone there were over 8085 accidents in the capital, of which 1622 people lost their lives. A study showed that 3 out of 4 people refuse to help road accident victims & 88% of them hesitate due to legal hassles.
So, all we’re saying is that you help road accidents’ victims. Not for the money, just good Samaritan efforts.
