17-05-2021 Mon 10:52

Amaravati: The Jagan government on Sunday announced Rs 15,000 financial aid to the families of Covid victims for conducting the last rites. Owing to high cost of cremation, the state government has taken a decision to extend financial support.

Principal Secretary (Health) Anil Kumar Singhal had issued a GO on May 16 announcing financial assistance of Rs 15,000 for performing funeral rites to dead bodies of Covid patients. As poor families are not in a position to perform last honours for Covid victims, several voluntary organisations and NGOS are taking initiative.
