Memo No.7/7/95-ERII/201

Chandigarh,dated the 9/1/1998

 

Sub:     Norms for the grant of relief to the persons affected by Natural calamities.

 

Ref:      This department memo No.7/7/95-ERII/6885, dated 23/9/97

 

            The matter regarding norms for the grant of relief in case of loss on account of No Crops Sown due to floods/ water logging has been re-examined and it is clarified that if there is no continuity between unsown crops, relief may be paid proportionately. Thus  “where crops have not been sown for less than two years, the amount of relief is to be provided @ Rs 2000 per acre and in this period of less than two years last three crops are to be covered. If a person has sown two crops he should be paid 1/3rd relief and if a person has sown only one crop he should be paid 2/3rd relief. Consequently, the relief may be calculated proportionately in the aforesaid manner for the crops not sown due to flood/ water logging”
