Family member of a victim can apply both in online and offline mode for claiming the compensation. The forms have been made available at the borough executive health offices. The application should be submitted in the respective boroughs.

Applications can also be made through KMC's website‌ .

A compensation of Rs 50000 will be awarded after

verification of the application. The Aadhaar card, death certificate (with mention

of death due to COVID), details of beneficiary bank account and documents associated with relationship of the victim with the applicant should be furnished along with the application.
