The development plan of Maradu municipality, with its focus on charity programmes, was released by Excise Minster K Babu here on Tuesday.
As per the plan Rs 6 lakh has been allocated to provide financial aid to the differently abled and asthma patients in the region.
“We have given special focus to charity programmes in the new development plan,” said municipal chairman T

The survey to spot the mentally challenged and asthma people will be conducted soon, after which financial aid will be disbursed. If the fund already allocated to the project is proved inadequate after the survey, the municipality will raise the amount for the programme, Devarajan said.
