Rajasthan CM gives Rs 34.56 cr to urban local bodies to cremate corona patients

Jaipur, Apr 27 (MNN) Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has ordered to give Rs 34.56 crore to urban local bodies to cremate coronavirus victims’ bodies as per the safety protocol.

The money has been given out of the Chief Minister’s Covid-19 Relief Fund, the government said.

The bodies should be ferried from hospitals to the crematoria or cemetery for funeral in a proper manner amid health protocol and all expenses on funeral would be borne by the urban bodies, a government spokesman said.

The Department of Autonomous Governance has since issued orders to all urban bodies in the desert state in this regard.

An ambulance, funeral vehicle or salvation vessel would be arranged by the civic body concerned for transport to the cremation/burial ground.

If the bereaved family wishes for the cremation to take place at its ancestral place (outside the municipal area), the local body in whose jurisdiction the death had occurred would inform the District Collector concerned and ensure arrangement of ambulance for the journey.

In case the funeral is planned to be held in rural area, necessary arrangements would be monitored at the level of Sub-Divisional Officer.

The department has directed all local bodies to ensure provision of ambulance, mortuary vehicle or salvation vessel and necessary material for the funeral as per the guidelines of the Health Department.
