As per the government, any patient who needs immediate hospitalisation for treatment is tagged as a seriously injured patient.

This will be decided at the discretion of the casualty medical officer at the emergency room. It is to be noted that if there is more than one person getting the victim to the hospital, then the reward sum and the citation will be divided equally among all.

As per reports, the campaign will be implemented by the State Health Ministry at the cost of the dedicated Road Safety Fund. A sum of ₹5 crores has been allocated in advance from the Road Safety Fund to progress the 'Jeevan Raksha Yojna' scheme.
