Mumbai Helplines:

The following information may be helpful:
The Next Of Kin Registry (NOKR) was established as a FREE tool for daily emergencies and national disasters. NOKR is an emergency contact system to help if you or your family member is missing, injured or deceased. NOKR provides the public a free proactive service to store emergency contacts, next of kin and vital medical information that would be critical to emergency response agencies. Stored information is only accessible via a secure area that is only accessible by emergency public trust agencies that have registered with NOKR.
NOKR is a non-partisan; non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to bridging rapid emergency contact information. NOKR was established in January 2004, for daily emergency situations.

he injury or passing of a loved one is a difficult time for families and friends. This sad time is compounded when you’re not informed when a loved one is injured or passes on. This happens when Local and State Agencies are unable to locate a family member or Next Of Kin. This would happen for numerous reasons:

A lack of information about family or contacts.
A lack of resources available to search for family members or “Next Of Kin”.

NOKR will provide services not “if” a tragedy should occur not “if” a disaster should happen but “when” these events come about.

tudent victims of Terror Tuesday are entitled to claim a separate compensation from the Mumbai University. “We have a General Insurance Scheme under which we will grant compensation to students. It covers all accidents, not just the bomb blasts,” said Dr. Vijay Khole, the Vice-Chancellor of the University.
This General Insurance Scheme is called Yuva Raksha and was started in the academic year 2001-2002 with the National Insurance Company. Under it, all students who are a part of the Mumbai University, or a part of colleges affiliated with the university, are entitled to compensation in case of injury due to accident, or death due to accident. The insurance is only given to students above the age of 18.
The premium of this scheme is paid by students at the time of their admission. “Students pay Rs. 20 to Rs. 35 to their colleges, along with the admission fees. So the college has the list of students who have paid the insurance premium. If a student who is on the list has an accident, then he is compensated,” said Girish Narvekar of the National Insurance Company who is in charge of the University’s insurance scheme. In case the students are studying though correspondence, then the application will be made to the management of the course they have chosen.
If there has been a case of death due to accident, then the student’s relatives can approach the management of the college the student was studying at and make an application for compensation. “The relatives have to submit a death certificate and the post-mortem report to the college. The college then forwards the information to us,” said Narvekar.
In case of injuries due to accident, the student has to submit the police FIR and hospital bills to the college management who will pass the information to the National Insurance Company. “In both the cases, we will grant them an amount of Rs. 50,000,” said Narvekar.
However, till now, he has not received any claims from bomb blasts victims.

    People get credit cards for a reason. Yes, credit cards might entice you to buy more but most of the time you would have bought those things anyway. Credit card allow you to spend less but to save more if you make the right choice. An important thing is to compare credit card deals. Fortunately, it’s not that hard when you use the sites such as
