In response to a petition filed by the Karnataka state government in the Supreme Court seeking assistance, the central government has sanctioned a drought relief fund totaling Rs 3,454 crore. This decision comes amidst the state’s dire need for financial aid to combat the ongoing drought crisis.

Despite the state’s initial request for a significantly higher amount of Rs 18,171 crore, the approved fund aims to provide immediate relief measures to alleviate the impact of the drought on Karnataka’s agricultural sector and affected communities.

The sanctioned amount will likely be utilized to implement various relief programs, including water conservation initiatives, support for farmers, and assistance for drought-affected regions in Karnataka. While the approved fund may not fully meet the state’s requirements, it represents a significant step towards addressing the pressing needs arising from the drought situation in Karnataka.
