Report No. 85
6.5. Position in Tamil Nadu.-
We may mention that in Tamil Nadu, the Legal Aid Board has launched a programme of assistance to victims of motor vehicle accidents who are not able to afford a lawyer.1 The Tamil Nadu Government have issued from time to time administrative orders as well as rules under the rule-making power. There had been frequent complaints of exploitation of these unfortunate people. From the beginning, it was felt that this was an area where the Board could help.
