In reply to NC legislator Shamima Firdous’s query over the pending relief cases in the district development commissioner’s office, the government informed that there are 14,505 cases of flood relief cases pending in district Srinagar, out of which 2900 cases stand referred to NDMA and 11505 cases not referred to NDMA.
On what steps would be taken to clear the leftover cases, the government said the government of India is being requested to consider the left out cases by providing additional assistance over and above Rs 1194.375 crore already sanctioned or released. The additional cases could not be uploaded in time due to technical problems, change in status and non-availability of account numbers, the government said.
Meanwhile, in a response to Pahalgam legislator’s query on total liabilities of district Anantnag regarding 2014 flood victims, the government said that an amount of Rs 51 crores is still outstanding.
