NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi tonight announced Rs 2 lakh each for the next of kin of those who died in Tamil Nadu floods.

"PM announced an ex-gratia relief of Rs. 2 lakhs each from PMNRF (Prime Minister's National Relief Fund) for next of kin of those who lost their lives in the floods in Tamil Nadu," said the PMO in a Twitter post.

Modi had on December 3 made an aerial survey of the flood-hit areas in Tamil Nadu and announced an immediate release of Rs.1,000 crore for relief and rehabilitation work in the flood-ravaged state.

That was in addition to Rs.940 crore which was released earlier by the Centre.
