This scheme is a major step of the state govt. to reduce the number of deaths due to accidents. Providing timely and best available treatment to the victims during the golden hour after accident will minimize the loss of life of people.


Key Provisions :

Under the scheme, the state government will bear medical expenses of up to 50,000 rupees for each victim of a road accident in the state for the first 48 hours.


The government would reimburse the amount to the hospital concerned upon submission of bills.


The free treatment facility will include dressing of wounds, X-ray, blood transfusion, treatment in ICU and MRI and all other treatment available in a hospital.


In an instance where a hospital refers the patient to another hospital within 48 hours, both the hospitals will be eligible for the reimbursement of their combined bill of Rs 50,000.


The move is aimed at providing timely and better treatment and thus, minimising the loss of life due to road accidents.

According to a Government Resolution issued by the state’s Health and Family Welfare department on May 17, even people hailing from other states or citizens of other countries will get free treatment regardless of their income if they meet with a road accident and get admitted to a government or a private hospital in Gujarat.
