Officials said TN Chief Minister Nammai Kaakkum 48 scheme will cover all those who don’t have insurance. The state has set aside Rs. 50 crore for the first phase of implementation of the Innuyir Kaappom Thittam (saving precious lives). The procedures performed under the new scheme are not included in the current state insurance scheme. After chief minister MK Stalin’s review meeting on road safety with ministers and officials on 18 Nov, the government announced a comprehensive policy including legislation of emergency medical services and setting up a road safety authority.
Tamilnadu Medical Emergencies Act to be Framed
The TN state govt. will frame a Medical Emergencies Act that will focus on 5 elements namely emergency response, rescue and resuscitation, damage control surgeries, bring people back to normalcy and rehabilitation. The idea is to empower more people to help road accident victims, create awareness, set protocols and bring in standard of care.
Tamilnadu govt. will create emergency codes and detail things to be done in the act. The state would involve students from schools, colleges, NGOs, and members of the public to convert road safety into a people’s movement. The state will also set up a road safety authority that will offer administrative and financial support to implement road safety policies, maintain registry, research on causes for prevention of accidents and monitor road design and quality.
