Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh approves proposal to launch Group (Term) Insurance Scheme for Casual Paid Labourers engaged by BRO  

Family to get insured value of Rs 10 lakh as insurance in any kind of CPL death

By PIB Delhi

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh has approved a proposal to launch a Group (Term) Insurance Scheme for Casual Paid Labourers (CPLs) engaged by the Border Roads Organisation/General Reserve Engineer Force for the ongoing project works. This scheme will provide the insured value of Rs 10 lakh as insurance in any kind of death to CPLs family/Next of Kin.

Keeping in view the severe risk posed to the lives of CPLs posted in hazardous work sites, inclement weather, inhospitable terrain, and occupational health hazards, and considering the deaths that occurred/reported during their engagement, the provision of insurance coverage on humanitarian grounds will prove to be a great morale booster to the CPLs. This scheme will serve as a social security and welfare measure for the CPLs working in remote and far-flung areas of the nation. It will go a long way in securing the livelihoods of their families

It may be recalled that the Raksha Mantri had recently approved many welfare measures for the betterment of the CPLs. These include:

·      Preservation & transportation of mortal remains and Transport Allowance entitlement of the attendant.

·      Enhancement of Funeral Assistance from Rs 1,000 to Rs 10,000.

·      Advance payment against ex-gratia compensation of Rs 50,000 as immediate help in case of death etc.
