Sindh government has launched “Universal Accidental Insurance Scheme

UAI-URDUSindh government has launched “Universal Accidental Insurance Scheme” in the province.An official of Sindh Insurance Limited told Radio Pakistan Karachi correspondent the provincial government will pay one hundred thousand rupees to the family in case of accidental death of a person.He said the claim shall be valid only if accidental death takes place within the province.He said heirs of martyrs of Sehwan Sharif blast were awarded one hundred thousand rupees under this scheme. an official told beemakar that We have started this scheme in October 2016 and so far received 400 claims out of which 50 has already been paid and 40 are ready to be paid. There is no shortage of funds but sometimes delay is caused by the victims’ family. Widows are in Idat so they cannot get prepared the Death Certificates from NADRA, but in some cases our team gets special authority from the widow and help them obtain bio-metric Certificate. The process has been simplified; the compensation can be transferred directly into the Bank Accounts. Government of Sindh emphasizes that the victims’ family must immediately get funds for their need.
