insurance

The auto drivers and workers federation of Andhra Pradesh has requested the state government not to insist on ‘driver badge’ to execute the insurance scheme, which it had launched, for the profit of drivers in the case of accident and natural death of auto drivers.

In a statement, federation’s State General Secretary G. Vamana Murthy said that though the government had announced Rs.5 lakh in case of accidental death and Rs.30,000 for natural death of auto drivers, the Labour Department was not paying the policy amount on the pretext that their names were not registered with the department.

He demanded the return to be paid to the nominees on the basis of the driving licence and not on basis of whether their name was registered or not.
