Contributions to the Chief Minister's Disaster Relief Fund, Kerala, continued to pour in from Tamil Nadu with actor Rajinikanth donating Rs 15 lakh and director Shankar granting Rs 10 lakh for the flood victims, sources said on Saturday.

IAS officers in the State, too, have decided to chip in by each contributing a day's salary to the fund, a press release from the president of the Tamil Nadu IAS Officers Association PWC Davidar said.

Senior vice-president of automobile company Hyundai Motor India Stephen Sudhakar and the south zone - business head of the company Y S Chang Sr handed over a cheque for Rs one crore to the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram.

Indian Overseas Bank said it has decided to not levy any fee for contributions made to the relief fund account, a statement from the public sector bank said. Kerala has been ravaged by torrential rains since August claiming hundreds of lives and rendering lakhs homeless.
