Just last week parts of Northeast Delhi burned, literally, as India’s capital became the epicenter for one of the worst cases of communal violence in recent history. The clashes reportedly began between pro-CAA and anti-CAA supporters and resulted in multiple casualties. The death toll climbed to 46, while over 200 people were injured.
In the wake of the horrifying violence, the Delhi Government has introduced various compensation schemes for the riot victims.
As per the schemes, the maximum compensation offered is 10 Lakh (for the ‘Death of Major’). It also includes compensation for property damage of both residential and commercial units.
An application form to apply for the compensation scheme has also been shared. Additionally, the official government site has also listed helpline numbers to avail further assistance:
