Delhi Govt increases monthly relief assistance for kashmiri migrant families

Srinagar, Oct 18: The Lieutenant Governor (L-G) of Delhi raised the monthly relief package for Kashmiri migrant families residing in the city from Rs 10,000 to Rs 27,000.
Introduced in 1989-90 by the government, the Adhoc Monthly Relief (AMR) scheme aims to provide support for the relief and rehabilitation of Kashmiri families displaced during the period of militancy.
This adjustment comes after a gap of 15 years. Previously, in 2007, the government had increased the AMR from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000.
Presently, the scheme benefits 2,000 Kashmiri families. However, the number of beneficiaries is expected to rise by almost 70 percent due to an increase in family members.
Officials have stated that there will be a compulsory requirement for linking Aadhaar details of eligible family members to the Adhoc Monthly Relief (AMR) scheme. The disbursement of relief payments will exclusively utilize an Aadhaar-based payment system.
Presently, AMR payments are set at Rs 3,250 per person per month, with a maximum cap of four persons per family.
Out of this Rs 3,250, the Delhi government contributes Rs 1,000, while the Union government provides Rs 2,250.
The monthly outlay for this program amounts to approximately Rs 2.5 crore.
