Justice Vibhu Bakhru, while considering two petitions filed by two acid attack victims, also said that the publication of such a comprehensive paper would ensure that the acid attack victims are fully aware of the benefits available and do not have to approach the courts for relief.
In terms of the 2015 scheme, the victims of acid attack who are dependent due to the extent of injury suffered, are entitled to compensation of a maximum of a sum of Rs 7 lakh.
The court asked the Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA) to ascertain the compensation payable to the victim in terms of the 2015 Scheme.
The court, while considering the second plea which sought employment for the victim, said the petitioner (victim) would also qualify for employment under the quota reserved for persons with disabilities.
