Kerala to give ₹10,000 as aid in case of floods

2019 guidelines to be applicable this year also

The State government has decided to provide ₹10,000 as immediate financial assistance to affected families if there is recurrence of a 2019-like flood situation during 2020-21.

The Disaster Management Department has issued orders approving the proposal, pointing out that the guidelines issued in 2019 would be applicable in this regard. The decision has been taken after a demand arose that guidelines similar to the ones issued in 2019 should be adopted this year as well.

This year, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted a normal southwest monsoon for the whole country. In Kerala, the State Disaster Management Authority has issued directions for tackling contingencies at the local level and the State requested the NDRF to position additional teams in various districts.
