All flood victims whose houses were inundated to get Rs 10,000 aid
Kottayam: The allegation that only the people who were lodging in relief camps during the floods would get compensation, was rejected by the government on Saturday. Flood victims are those who were adversely affected by the flood which includes those people whose houses are inundated. They would also be given Rs 10,000 aid irrespective of whether they had shifted to a relief camp.
