    UPA offers Rs 1,000 cr to Sikh riots victims

    Political Bureau

    New Delhi, Dec 27 In its continuing efforts to undo the hurt to the Sikh community and regain their trust, the Congress-led UPA government, in a year-end offering of sorts, will be fulfilling its promise of enhancing relief and rehabilitation to the 1984 riot victims, which it had made after tabling the Nanavati report in Parliament.
    The enhanced assistance, in financial terms, is expected to be to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore of additional compensation. The matter is to be approved when the Union Cabinet meets this Thursday.
    Prime Minister Manmmohan Singh, who had tendered an unconditional apology to the Sikh community in the monsoon session of Parliament after the Nanavati commission report had been tabled, had promised to do his best to ease their pain and suffering. He had also set up two committees to inquire into relief and rehabilitation work as well as look into the scope of increasing compensation that would stand to benefit 3,500 Sikh families. The two committees, headed by special secretary KP Singh and secretary (border management) DK Sankaran, had submitted their reports to Union home secretary VK Duggal on October 29. In specific terms, the committees have recommended compensation of Rs 350-400 crore to the families of victims killed in the violence, while the remaining Rs 600 crore will go towards compensation for families who lost their home or business.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
