10 January 2017 Current Affairs: Delhi Government has approved ‘Good Samaritan Policy to encourage people to help road accident victims in emergency situation.
It was approved by the state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in New Delhi. This policy will give bystanders incentive to help accident victims and more importantly provide them with legal protection.
Under this policy, monetary incentive of Rs 2,000 and appreciation certificate will be given to people who help road accident victims in the national capital.
Its main intention is to encourage people to take accident victims in emergency situation to hospitals so that someone’s life could be saved. At present, most of people are unwilling to help mainly because they are scared they will land in trouble or be harassed by police.
This policy seeks to change this attitude of people. Earlier, under the same scheme in April 2016 Delhi Government had decided to provide basic life support training to all auto-rickshaw drivers to provide helping hand in case of a road accident.
