Quantum hike in cash awards- PVC magnifies sixtyfold

The Hindu- The State government has increased manifold, the quantum of cash awards given to recipients of gallantry awards.

Considering the fact that the previous increase in the quantum was carried out 17 years ago, the government has decided that the recipients of the Param Vir Chakra would be given Rs.15 lakh against the existing Rs.22,500.

Those given the Maha Vir Chakra would get Rs.10 lakh (Rs.15,000); Ashok Chakra Rs.12 lakh (Rs.20,000); Kirti Chakra Rs.8 lakh (Rs.12,000); Vir Chakra Rs.7.5 lakh (Rs.7,000) and Shaurya Chakra Rs.5 lakh (Rs.5,000).

An announcement in this regard was made in the Assembly last week. — Special Correspondent
