COVID-19: Bengaluru mayor begins compensation to kin of deceased pourakarmikas with Rs 10 lakh

The service of Nagaratha, a woman pourakarmika who lost her life battling coronavirus, has been acknowledged by the BBMP. Her family was provided a cheque of Rs 10 lakh. So far, five BBMP frontline workers, including a driver, have died due to the coronavirus.
 
As per the BBMP Pourakarmika Association, each Pourakarmika working under BBMP is covered under a Rs 50 lakh insurance scheme. They are yet to receive these benefits.
Apart from this, recognising the efforts put in by these civic body workers, the BBMP has already given Rs 10 lakh to the family of one pourakamika, and in a day or two, the families of others are expected to receive the same.
 
The Pourakarmika Association has also demanded that Rs 50 lakh insurance announced by the government also be given to protect other frontline workers who risk exposure to the virus every day.
