Srinagar, June 15: Chairman-cum-Managing Director, New India Assurance Company, Mumbai M Ramadoss called on Governor N N Vohra at Raj Bhavan here today and presented to him Insurance Policy which extends the insurance cover of Rs one lakh to all the registered Yatris, labourers and pony owners during the period of the Amarnathji Yatra-2010.
This is among the several new initiatives for ensuring progressive improvement in the Yatra management.
The Insurance Policy has the provision of free of charge Accident Insurance Cover of Rs. one lakh for every Yatri who possesses a Yatra Permit. The entire expenditure for drawing this insurance cover is being borne by the Board. In Yatra 2009, a Yatri seeking an accident insurance cover was required to pay Rs. 24 at the time of registration for the Yatra, an official statement said.
Accidental Insurance Cover has also been provided, with the support from the State Government, to all the registered labourers deployed during the Yatra, as well as for the pony owners, in case their horse/pony is involved in an accidental death. This scheme is aimed to benefit about 20,000 labourers and 7,000 pony owners, belonging to the economically weaker sections of the society.
