Flood: Enlisted victims to get compensation soon
Kakkanad: Ernakulam district collector has announced that the victims of floods, whose names were in the list of those seeking compensation but are yet to receive any financial aid will receive the same in their bank accounts by the end of the month.
"70 per cent of the distribution of compensation to flood victims in the district has been completed. The list of beneficiaries was prepared after inspecting the houses of those whose houses were completely or partially destroyed in the floods. Complaints regarding the list were taken as appeals. Inspections were held at their properties and follow up efforts were undertaken," the collector said.
Changes cannot be made to the slab of compensation which was decided following inspections, he added. The collector also clarified that new appeals and applications in this regard were not being accepted in the collectorate.
