    In a landmark decision, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had issued a directive specifying that the state government would bear the primary responsibility for compensating victims of dog bites. The court outlined that a minimum financial assistance of Rs 10,000 per tooth mark would be provided.

    The ruling further stated that in cases where the flesh is removed from the skin, the compensation should be a minimum of Rs 20,000 per 0.2 cm wound. This decision was made during the hearing of a group of petitions related to incidents of dog bites.

    As part of the resolution of 193 petitions, the HC had instructed the governments of Punjab and Haryana, along with the Union Territory of Chandigarh, to establish committees headed by the deputy commissioners of the respective districts. These committees would be tasked with determining the compensation for victims of dog bite incidents.
