Hyderabad: The government of Telangana through its municipal corporation has disbursed Rs 28.44 Crore financial assistance to flood affected families, it claimed.
In a fresh statement released on 10th December, the officials of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation said, " GHMC deposited flood relief amounting to Rs.11,10 crores on Thursday to 11,103 beneficiaries bank account. On Tuesday and Wednesday, alone Rs.17.33 Crore has been disbursed to 17,333 beneficiaries. So far flood relief amount of Rs.28.44 Crores has been deposited in 28,436 beneficiaries bank account".
The officials have asked flood-affected victims not to visit mee-seva center for Rs 10000 relief. In a statement, GHMC said victims need not approach the Mee-seva centers. "Officials will inspect the flood-affected families. Post verification of their identification, the money will be directly credited to their bank account," it said.
It is to note that the distribution of flood relief was stopped before the GHMC polls as it violated the model code of conduct. However during the release of the TRS Manifesto for the GHMC Polls, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said post-elections officials will inspect the flood affected families and relief will be released accordingly.
The GHMC authorities denies reports of the flood relief money being stopped post elections.
