The Delhi government launched the Farishte Dilli Ke scheme on 8th October after the successful trial run of the good Samaritan scheme. The scheme was launched by the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal. The trial of the scheme saved 3,000 lives. The Delhi Police supported the scheme.
The scheme aims to help accident victims, burn victims and acid attack victims and take them to hospitals. The pilot project of the scheme was launched in 2017.
The scheme honours and rewards those who help accident victims and take them to the hospital. Under the scheme, the State government provides free treatment to all victims of the accident regardless of the cost of treatment.
It also provides a reward of Rs.2,000 and a certificate to a good samaritan for taking the accident victims to a hospital. As per the scheme, the samaritans who help accident victims will also not be liable to any questions from the police.
