Major Cause Of Deaths In Goa

GOA: Accidents have become a major cause of deaths in Goa, with an average of about 300 deaths per year. To offer relief to the accident victims and their grieving families, the Goa State Interim Compensation to road accident victims was disbursed to 22 victims’ families on Thursday.“There are poor people who lose their loved ones, or cases wherein the sole breadwinner of a family is injured in an accident.

A total of 22 beneficiaries were handed the compensation at the hands of the minister. One hundred twenty-two beneficiaries have been granted compensation under the scheme so far. But people must apply immediately,” Godinho said, adding that if a person is seriously injured then the government compensates them with Rs 1 lakh.

I have deliberately kept it in abeyance due to the pandemic. I have taken the Union minister in confidence and explained to him that Goa is a different place compared to other states. People are already suffering due to no revenue generation here. We cannot further burden people with higher fines. If things improve we will try to implement it by January 1, 2021,” he said.
