MK Stalin, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, announced on Tuesday that Rs 300 crore has been set aside to repair roads, canals, and other infrastructure facilities that were damaged by the recent heavy rains in the state.

MK Stalin also announced that farmers who have lost their Kuruvai crops that were ready for harvest but were destroyed by the rains will receive Rs 20,000 per hectare.

Farmers who have lost their standing crops due to rainwater inundation will also be given agricultural inputs worth Rs 6,038 short term paddy variety seeds 45 kg worth Rs 1,485, micronutrients 25 kg worth Rs 1,235, urea 60 kg worth Rs 354, and DAP 125 kg worth Rs 2,964. Farmers will be able to re-cultivate their crops with the help of these agricultural inputs.

On the occasion were Agriculture Minister MRK Panneerselvam, Chief Secretary V Irai Anbu, and other senior officials. Earlier, the Chief Minister received a report from a group of six ministers.
