The state revenue department has issued a government resolution directing the treasury to take immediate action.

In May, the government gave its nod to give ex-gratia to 1.81 lakh kin of those who died of Covid-19. However, in its order issued on Tuesday, it sanctioned the amount to 17,000 applicants only.
