SRINAGAR — Following directions by the State Human Rights Commission, the Government has established mechanism for implementation of Solatium Scheme 1989 regarding hit and run accident cases in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the human rights body, the implementation of the scheme has been delayed by three decades. 

Secretary SHRC said a “historic order” was passed by the Commission on a complaint pertaining to “HIT & RUN cases” filed before the Commission by ordering the State Government to implement the Solatium Scheme 1989 in the State which is already in existence throughout India.

The legal heir of a deceased in a hit-and-run accident case is entitled to get Rs 2 lakh under the solatium scheme. Likewise, the critically injured is entitled to get Rs 50,000 under the scheme.

“In compliance to the orders/directions of the Commission the State Government has established mechanism for implementation of the said scheme in each district as per Government Order No.41 TR of 2019 dated: 25-06-2019,” the secretary said, according to GNS.

The officer said the scheme is implemented in the State first time on the intervention of the Commission which otherwise should have been implemented thirty years before.

Those accidents are considered hit-and-run wherein the vehicle, with which the accident has happened, remains unidentified.

According to the procedure, an applicant needs to submit an application seeking compensation under this scheme in Form I alongwith duly filled in discharge receipt in Form II and the undertaking in Form V to the Claims Enquiry Officer of the Sub-Division or Taluka in which the accident takes place.

An application under clause (1) shall be made within a period of six months from the date of the accident: provided that an application made after six months but not after 12 months from the date of the accident may be accepted by the Claims Enquiry Officer, if he is satisfied that there are reasonable grounds to condone the delay.

Where the Claims Enquiry Officer does not accept the grounds advanced by the applicant he shall record speaking orders and communicate to the applicant reasons for not accepting the claim application.
