Even if the rescuer does not know the accident victim, it is enough if he calls the telephone Number provided under the Mukhyamantri Santwana  Harish Scheme and mention if the victim is a man or woman, for him to get ID.

The victims will get treatment in Super Speciality Hospitals, District and Taluk Hospitals as well as private hospitals based on the extent of injuries  suffered by them, the Minister said  adding there is a need for the co-operation of everyone for the successful implementation of the scheme.
