Under the free treatment scheme, the Gujarat state government will provide medical expenses of up to Rs 50,000 for each victim of a road accident in the state for the first 48 hours.

Gujarat state government would also reimburse the amount to the hospital concerned upon submission of bills. The free treatment facility will include dressing of wounds, X-ray, blood transfusion, treatment in ICU and MRI and all other treatment available in a hospital.
