Uttar Pradesh government led by Akhilesh Yadav has declared that all natural calamities including unseasonal heavy rain, lightning, Loo and storm etc will be treated as state disaster.
An official release said that all the victims of these disasters will be given relief as per provisions made under State Disaster Relief Fund by the Central government. Giving the information, Principal Secretary (Revenue) Suresh Chandra said a large number of people suffer due to these natural causes every year and the new system introduced will greatly benefit the victims and their kin. He also apprised that the notification in this regard has also been issued.
Earlier the victims of lightning, storm and heat stroke etc were given very little compensation by local administration as there was no special provision to treat such cases as special one. But now coming under the state disaster relief fund, the victims or their families will get ample financial support
So let’s do:
1. Name the state, which has declared that all natural calamities including unseasonal heavy rain, lightning, Loo and storm etc will be treated as state disaster?
