You not minding a Rs.500 charge is your personal choice. The issue here is forced collection.

They have a 3rd party insurance system which is meant to take care of third-party injuries. If they are unable to make the exisiting system work, what is the point of adding a second charge, on top of the current one, regardless of the amount?

Tommorow, when they figure out that this isn't reaching the victims either, will they will add a 3rd charge whilst still retaining the current charges?

And this being a Government related matter I am pretty sure, god forbid, if you ever suffer such a fate they will not make it so easy for you to claim the compensation. I won't be surprised if suddenly it turns out then that the onus is on you to prove that someone hit you and run away and it was not you who caused the accident.
Unless caught on a CCTV (in which case, police can identify the run away driver anyway), it's not easy to prove that accident happened due to the driver itself and no other party was involved. I mean, how difficult is it to record an FIR, saying I was hit by a car, because of which, I lost control and hit the pole; car driver drove off.

OR

It is equally difficult to prove you were actually a victim of hit and run case and not got into an accident due to your own negligence.

I can foresee a lot of actual victims not getting any compensation and a lot of "influential/connected" people getting compensation in false cases (much like the Agri loan waivers)

Sorry, but I disagree. The 3rd party system is predicated on people stopping and owning up to their fault. No government on earth can stop hit and runs from occurring since it is in human nature.
