Respected Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has always been very concerned regarding the health and welfare of the citizens of the state. He is continuously moving forward towards making people aware of road accidents through awareness campaigns and strengthening strictness. His constant contribution towards road safety is commendable and valued heartedly.
You will be delighted to know that many investigation drives were conducted in the state to bring down the increasing number of road accidents. In these drives, necessary actions have been taken against those who were overloading, drunk, speeding, and dangerously driving.
Along with all these measures, in the budget announcement, the government has also implemented Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Jeevan Rakshak Yojana in the state. Under this, the people who come forward to take the victims injured in road accidents to the hospital will be honored for their courage and a cash reward of 5 thousand with a citation will be given to them.
To get this scheme implemented delicately, the finance department has issued the rules. The expenditure of this scheme will be run under the supervision of the Medical Department and will be borne from the budget dedicated to the Road Safety Fund.
Let’s get in detail about the points of the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Jeevan Rakshak Yojana which needs to be recognized by the citizens of the state:
- Under the scheme, the person who brings the injured to the hospital will be rewarded with 5 thousand rupees and a citation. But the cash reward will only be payable if the condition of the injured is serious.
- Apart from this, if more than one person brings the injured to the hospital, the prize money will be distributed equally among all.
- At the same time, only a citation will be given if the person brought to the hospital is less injured.
- Private and government ambulance workers, policemen on duty, and relatives of the injured have been excluded from the benefit of this scheme.
Be mindful of the matter that according to the order issued by the state government, the good person who takes the injured person in a road accident to the nearest medical institution should be treated with respect. Such a good person should be allowed to leave the hospital immediately as per his wish.
Note the point that under the scheme, it will be mandatory to give treatment to the person injured in a road accident in the nearest private hospital and for not doing so, a provision has also been made for disciplinary action against the doctor of the hospital concerned.
We can identify and feel that the motive of the Chief Minister behind launching this scheme is very genuine and clear. This decision is considered very crucial as this will encourage people who evade the help of the victims due to the fear of legal proceedings. It will encourage them to come forward to help the injured.
The idea of the Government behind making people safe through tightening Road Safety is very strong and apt. We believe that efforts will be successful and results will be seen shortly.
