Under the scheme, victims will be provided financial assistance up to Rs 3 lakh.
A day after five rape cases were reported within a span of 48 hours in the Capital, the ministry of women and child development came up with a scheme to compensate the victims by providing them financial assistance of up to Rs 3 lakh.
The scheme was announced after the Delhi High Court rapped the Central and the state governments for the delay in setting up a compensation scheme for rape victims. The court ordered the implementation of the scheme within the next six weeks.
Under the scheme, if a rape case is prima facie made out, the victim will receive an interim financial assistance of Rs 20, 000 within 15 days.
After giving due consideration to the physical injury and emotional trauma faced by the victim, she will be provided with further financial aid up to Rs 50,000.
However, in view of the rampant trend of rape victims turning hostile or going missing after lodging the FIR, the major chunk of the compensation amount- Rs 1.30 lakh - will be handed over to the victim only after she makes the final deposition before the court.
Get Raped and collect money shouldn't become the philosophy of the Government, it should also ensure that the adequate security is provided to the weaker sex and also punish, severely, the Rapits!
