Delhi-LG allows a big increase in the monthly aid for Kashmiri migrants

October 18, 2018 (ANI): VK Saxena, the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, has given his legal approval for an increase in the Adhoc Monthly Relief (AMR) given to Kashmiri refugees living in the national capital.

The amount of help has gone up from Rs 10,000 per month to Rs 27,000 per month.


This is the first big rise in the AMR in more than 15 years. The last change was in 2007, when the amount was doubled from Rs 5,000 per family, which was the original amount set in 1995.

The Central Government’s Security Related Expenditure (Relief and Rehabilitation) Scheme pays for the AMR, which is a very important help for Kashmiri refugees.

The goal of this programme is to help families who have been harmed by terrorism get aid and get back on their feet.

With the new rules, you will have to seed Aadhar information for every family member who is qualified for AMR.

Also, the Aadhar Payment Bridge System (APBS) and the Public Financial Management System (PFMS) will be the only ways that refugees can get help.

The AMR is being given to about 2,000 people in the national capital right now. This number will likely go up by almost 70% when more “units” are added to account for the growing number of family members.

The project shows that the government is serious about helping Kashmiri refugees in Delhi when they need it. (ANI)
