He said Rs 1.20 lakh was being given for construction of houses, Rs 30000 on the death of milch animals, Rs 25000 on the death of bull, Rs 3000 on the death of goats etc. Along with this, the government would also compensate for the crop loss under the provisions of revenue book of circular (RBC).

He said no stone would be left unturned in providing relief in the flood affected districts of Gwalior-Chambal division and Vidisha district. Every flood victim would be provided assistance. Relief amount and other assistance would ill be provided with complete transparency and seriousness. Sincere efforts were being made to ensure that we provide better support to the suffering people.

The CM said government had so far transferred more than Rs 52 crore into the bank accounts of the flood affected families.

CM directed the collectors of all the affected districts to complete the survey work with complete transparency and seriousness. “Claims and objections should be taken by pasting the survey list on the panchayat buildings.
