Ahmedabad: Asha Pancholi (name changed), a resident of Isanpur, was among relatives queuing at the civilian hospital to obtain her husband’s death certificate.
“Our relatives told us that we had to get the certificate from the hospital first and then submit it to the mamlatdar’s office along with other documents. After the verification, we will get Rs 50,000, ”she said. “After my husband died, I did domestic work to take care of my house and raise my two school children. This money will help us.
While state authorities have claimed that the process is going smoothly for relatives of Covid-19 victims, many Amdavadis have made efforts to put together the documents that must be submitted in order to receive compensation for 50,000 Rs.
Rajendra Trivedi, the state’s revenue minister, said on Thursday: ‘We have ordered that the details of all families of Covid victims be gathered and that they be helped to fill out forms and complete other processes. so that they can be paid 50,000 Rs in the next 10 days. ”
The state administration said mamlatdar offices will oversee the collection of forms and the collection of information for payment. Those who have death certificates mentioning Covid-19 as the cause of death, and where the deaths occurred with 30 days of a positive RT-PCR, RAT or molecular test, will receive compensation.
What if an applicant does not have the death certificate or RT-PCR report? A statement from the disaster response center indicates that the person will need to submit a request under the district emergency response center to the collector’s office.
“If a person does not have Form 4 (death in custody) or 4A (non-institutional death), if they have a problem with the cause of death mentioned on the death certificate, if there is no positive test report, she will have to complete and apply, ”the note said. It will be sent to the member secretary, the Covid-19 Death Ascertaining Committee (CDAC), for decision, he added.
