As the nation is facing a partial lockdown and the economy has come to a halt daily wagers and workers are worst hit. Taking that in consideration Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath announced financial assistance.

Since the state is going through lockdowns amidst COVID-19, 15 lakh daily wage labourers and 20.37 lakh construction workers would get the assistance. An amount of Rs 1, 000 would be credited to their bank accounts through DBT (Direct benefit transfer mechanism).

Those who fall outside this category and are not covered under any scheme nor have permanent employment would also be given assistance. Such, people would also be given Rs 1,000 each from the money drawn from the ‘State Contingency Fund‘. The announcements were made by CM Yogi in an address to the public on Saturday.
