Speaking to the Press at Circuit House on Monday Mar 7th, he said that this scheme will be named after Harish who recently died in an accident and declared his wish to donate his organ before he breathed his last.

 He also said that people are afraid to take the one who meets with an accident to the hospital for two genuine reasons - to avoid the questioning of policemen and  payment of the bills in the hospital counter.

Hospital officials should admit the patients who meet with accidents, he said adding in case of negligence strict action will be taken. A unique software and a toll free number will be introduced to offer help for  people during accidents, he added.

Khader said, this scheme will be benefited by  those who meet with accidents and that the government will provide compensation up to Rs. 25,000 within 48 hours of the patient getting admitted to hospital.
