Rs. 1 crore ex-gratia to kin of 17 covid warriors : Delhi CM

New Delhi : The Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal approved an ex gratia amount of Rs 1 crore each to the families of 17 employees who died in the line of COVID-19 duty.”The Delhi government salutes such workers who have served relentlessly the citizens of Delhi. There is no compensation for anyone’s life, but I am hopeful that this financial assistance will provide some ease to their families,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying in an official statement.

The approval of the chief minister came after a meeting of the Group of Ministers (GoM) decided on granting ex gratia of Rs 1 crore each to the families of those ‘corona warriors’ who passed away, it said.

The scheme of payment of ex gratia of Rs 1 crore is meant as a monetary security for the families of those who were assigned on Covid duty and died due to coronavirus infection.
