The next of kin of those who lost their lives in various parts of the country due to the earthquake yesterday, shall receive an enhanced compensation of Rs. 4 lakh from the National Disaster Relief Fund. This follows the Union Government's decision to revise the guidelines for the National Disaster Relief Fund, and raise this compensation amount from Rs. 1.5 lakh to Rs. 4 lakh, in the event of death due to natural calamity. 

The above amount is in addition to the compensation of Rs. 2 lakh from the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund for the next of kin of those killed. A compensation of Rs. 50,000 has also been announced for the seriously injured.
