Delhi HC frames FastDAR scheme for compensation claim to road accident deaths


New Delhi, Jul 3 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today framed a Fast-Detailed Accident Report (FastDAR) Scheme for compensation claim relating to road accident deaths, to be dealt within 10 days of the accident.

This scheme applies to death cases in which (i) the death is due to rash and negligent driving of the offending vehicle; (ii) the driver of the offending vehicle is holding a valid driving licence; (iii) the offending vehicle is validly insured at the time of the accident; (iv) in case of a commercial vehicle, there is valid permit and fitness certificate; and (v) there is no violation of the Insurance policy such as drunken driving or the vehicle being driven by a minor.

This FastDAR Scheme for compensation claims of road accident deaths within 10 days of the accident was launched as a Pilot Project on May 1, 2021.

“In case of death of victims of road accident, the principles of calculation of compensation are well settled. The age and income of the victim and the number of dependants of the deceased victims have to be verified to compute the compensation. If the officer of the Insurance Company visits the house of the deceased victim immediately after the accident, these three things could be ascertained and necessary documents can be collected. At the time of grief, there would not be any possibility of manipulation/ exaggeration and the compensation on that basis could be tendered to the family of the deceased victim.”

The verdict iterated that Road Accident death compensation case could be decided within 10 days of the accident through the FastDAR Scheme. The first case of FastDAR Scheme was resolved in a record time of 10 days.

The ‘General Insurance Council,’ in association with ‘Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company,’ organised the Commemoration Ceremony on July 3, 2021, of Fast Track DAR Scheme for settlement of Road Accident Death Cases launched on May 1, 2021 (First Road Accident Death Case decided within 10 days of accident).

The Chief Guest was Justice RV Raveendran, Former Judge, Supreme Court of India and Guest of Honour was Justice JR Midha, Judge, Delhi High Court. ILNS/ABV/RJ
