Rs 2,000 each for displaced families



Responding to the story carried in Deccan Herald of October 6, Goel clarified that the immediate relief has been paid to the families as per the guidelines of the State government. He said that similar immediate cash relief was paid to the people affected by floods in Belgaum district in 2005.

He said, there was some confusion in the district establishment about the payment of the immediate relief and that has been overcome. The families, which have enrolled in the registry of the relief camps opened in the district are eligible for receiving the urgent cash relief.

Goel said, there was no dearth of funds for payment of relief to the flood-hit people. Of the 21 people who have lost their lives in the floods, compensation of Rs 1 lakh each to the next of kin of 19 deceased has already been paid.
