Writ Petition (Civil) 749 0f 2014, The Gauhati High Court at Guwahati

Medical treatment for an acid attack survivor is critical for living a life of dignity; it is also the responsibility of the state to provide the survivor with adequate and free medical treatment.  In this recent order by the Guwahati High Court, two survivors, N and K, were granted full compensation for their medical treatment. The order directs the State Government to directly pay all the expenses of their treatment to the hospital. The sisters will be treated in Delhi, by the hospitals suggested by the medical board. The court has shown sensitivity by also granting reimbursements for the travel and stay in Delhi for both the sisters and an escort.

Parivartan Kendra vs. UOI & Ors. (WP (CIVIL) No. 867/2013), the PIL on Acid Attack Cases.

The Supreme Court in its Judgment has directed the Bihar Government to compensate the acid attack survivor with Rs. 10 Lakhs, and her sister to with Rs. 3 Lakhs. C and S, two sisters who belong to the Dalit community from Bihar were brutally attacked with acid on October 21, 2012. C suffered burns on 28% of her body and 90% of her face, following the acid attack. Parivartan Kendra, a women’s group, filed a petition with the support of HRLN seeking to ensure that acid attack survivors are properly rehabilitated and are treated with immediate care, sensitivity and skill. It was additionally pointed out that the compensation amount of Rs. 3 Lakhs granted due to the Orders passed by the Supreme Court in Laxmi v. Union of India & Ors. (WP (Crl). No. 129 of 2006) was grossly inadequate, especially when the survivor has suffered serious injuries on her body which is required to be taken into consideration. And that the Laxmi order is not restrictive in deciding the compensation amount.
