New Delhi: Most opposition-ruled states, barring Delhi, have either not disbursed Rs 50,000 ex gratia to kin of Covid victims or have abysmally low disbursal rate, the Centre informed the Supreme Court on Sunday through an affidavit that collated data in this regard from all states and UTs.

The SC had in October approved the Centre’s decision to grant Rs 50,000 to kin of each person who succumbed to Covid. With the country recording nearly 4.5 lakh Covid deaths, the financial burden as of now at the rate of Rs 50,000 for kin of each Covid victim would cast a cumulative financial burden of Rs 2,250 crore on the states. The top ten big states which reported the maximum Covid deaths are: Maharashtra (1.41 lakh), Kerala (39,000), Karnataka (38,000), Tamil Nadu (36,000), Delhi (31,000), UP (23,000), West Bengal (19,000), Punjab (17,000), Andhra Pradesh (14,000) and Chhattisgarh (14,000).
