Home Guards allowed to open accounts with HDFC Bank to get accidental insurance cover
Home Guards and personnel working with district Home Guard offices in Maharashtra have been given the option of transferring their salary bank accounts to HDFC Bank to get benefit of personal accidental insurance cover of Rs 50 lakh, officials said on Thursday.
Director General (Home Guard) Bhushan Kumar Upadhyay issued a circular in this regard on Tuesday.
Home Guards, who are usually posted to maintain law and order along with the police force, do not get insurance cover from the state home department.
The issue of providing insurance cover to Home Guards had been raised multiple times in meetings with the home minister.
Besides these covers, the bank is going to provide other benefits to Home Guards and their family members, too, he said.
