J&K Administrative Council to provide life insurance cover of Rs 25 lakh to all elected representatives of local bodies

The decision aims at strengthening grass roots democracy by providing a sense of security to the elected members of local bodies who are under constant threat from terrorists.

The life insurance cover will act as a guarantee for the subsistence of the family members of the elected representatives who die in terror related incidents. It will ensure that their families do not face economic distress and poverty in case of any untoward incident and continue to fulfil basic needs of nutrition, education and health in adverse circumstances.
