"Rs 5 lakh will be given to each family whose house has been damaged due to landslides and floods. Provisionally, Rs 10,000 will be paid as advance relief to the affected families from Monday night," Yediyurappa told reporters at a relief centre at Belthangady.
The state government will also give Rs 5,000 as monthly house rent allowance to the affected families till their damaged houses are repaired and new houses built soon.
With no let-up in moderate to heavy rainfall on Monday, as forecast by the weather office ahead, normal life remained disrupted in the coastal, central and northwest regions due to flooding and overflowing lakes and rivers, with schools and colleges shut, markets closed, and roads damaged.
"I hope the situation in the flood-ravaged districts will start improving in the next couple of days, as rain water recedes and their levels dip in villages and towns," said the Chief Minister after visiting Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu districts in the southern region.
According to an official of the Chief Minister's Office in Bengaluru, the toll in rain and flood-related incidents has gone up to 42 with a dozen missing in the affected regions.
