Govt. to provide house rent for disaster affected families

The Cabinet of Ministers recently approved a decision to allocate money to pay the rent of the houses of currently displaced families due to the recent weather calamity.

Families whose houses are completely or partially damaged as well as those who had to evacuate their houses due to landslide risks will be entitled for this compensation.

Accordingly Rs. 7500 is allocated to each family which will be issued for June, July and August months of this year.

According to the data available, nearly 3037 houses have been completely destroyed and 25,647 are severely damaged as a result of the natural disaster. Most of these families are still sheltered in protection camps.
