The government disbursed over Rs 475 crore to over 4.75 lakh families in and around Greater Hyderabad so far. Continuous heavy rains caused floods in and around Greater Hyderabad resulting in inundation of several colonies and rainwater gushing into the houses in October.
The government has already distributed more than Rs 475 crore to the flood-affected families as part of the first round of disbursal in the GHMC area which began early last month. However, the distribution had to be stopped following which the GHMC officials were directed to submit all of their accounts and transfer the remaining amount to their respective zonal offices. However, with the second round of disbursal, families that were unable to avail the financial assistance can now apply for the same by following the above-mentioned steps.
With the latest scheme, the affected victims will get the amount transferred to their bank accounts. Earlier, financial assistance was offered to the families in cash.
