Emergency and Useful Numbers - Legitimate Informations

Social Networking can be great asset to the needy when used for purposes like the below. Few weeks back, I came across this Whatsapp message saying it came from Narendra Modi. Whether the fact is true or not, what requires attention is the message in it. Though the same message has been circulated among peoples through other social networks, many are still doubting the legitimacy of such messages since it is not new get many such forwarded messages everyday. 

We at took a step forward to see whether that the messages are legitimate along with our findings to the original destination as per the importance of the messages. Kindly share and help someone in need.
genuine informations
1. Supreme Court gas announced that any person who meets with a road accident can be taken to the nearby hospital immediately. Hospital must not ask for police report to admit him or her and it is the the Doctor's duty to do first aid. Police can be informed later.

Our findings - True! We came across such an existence of law through the International Road Federation Website. According to the reports, 

Every doctor whether at a Government hospital or otherwise has the professional obligation to extend his services with due expertise for protecting life. No law or State action can intervene to avoid / delay the discharge of the paramount obligation cast upon members of the medical profession. The obligation being total, absolute and paramount, laws of procedure whether in statutes or otherwise which would interfere with the discharge of this obligation cannot be sustained and must, therefore, give way.

The treatment of the patient should not wait for the arrival of the police or completion of legal formalities. All hospitals and doctors are required to provide immediate medical aid to all the cases,whether medico-legal or not.

Also, under Section 134 of the Motor Vehicles (MV) Act, 1988, the driver and / or the owner of the motor vehicle responsible for a road accident is required to take all reasonable steps to secure medical attention for the injured person by conveying him to the nearest medical practitioner or hospital, unless it is not practicable to do so on account of mob fury or any other reason beyond his control.

Also, we found that it is the National Child Labour Project in TamilNadu that which runs the project and it not only for child beggars but also child labours.

8. Medicine for Blood Cancer!!!! 'Imitinef Mercilet' is a medicine which cures blood cancer. Its available free of cost at "Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai". Create Awareness. It might help someone. Cancer Institute in Adyar, Chennai  (Category: Cancer ) Address:East Canal Bank Road, Gandhi Nagar, Adyar, Chennai -600020, Landmark: Near Michael School.Phone: 044-24910754 044-24910754 , 044-24911526 044 24911526 ,044-22350241 044-22350241

Our findings - False!  Having retrieved the right facts, we found that the Cancer Institute in Chennai has clearly mentioned that the message circulated is false.

It has been noticed that an information is being circulated through the internet as emails and as 
face book posts regarding the availability of a certain medicine called ‘Imitinef mercilet’at the 
Cancer Institute, Adyar, Chennai. The message also often makes the statement about this drug 
curing all blood cancers and it being offered free of charge at the Cancer Institute. We want to 
make it clear that this is a misleading message being circulated. We believe that the drug name 
mentioned is a distortion of the drug called ‘imatinib mesylate’ which is a drug used to treat a 
type of blood cancer called ‘chronic myeloid leukemia’. This drug is available all over India and 
is being prescribed at all Cancer Centers and is not exclusive to the Cancer Institute, Adyar, 
Chennai. The drug support programme is also active in all major cancer centers in the country. 
Hence people who come across the misleading message via internet are requested not to 
circulate it.

Our findings - True!  With the unique ID, passenger can know the status of the complaint by sending SMS,
"STATUS < SPACE > < REFERENCE ID>"  to 8121281212
(or) by logging on our website- The final reply will be sent through an SMS and will also be available on our website-
