The state government of Odisha is contemplating to bring children from Class I to X in government schools under insurance cover. If the insurance is implemented, the scheme would benefit 66 lakh school students. The insurance will cover all types of mishaps during school hour, educational tours, picnics, road accidents, fire, drowning, falling from trees or boundary wall collapse. The compensation money will help parents and guardians of affected students in meeting medical expenses immediately.
