MUMBAI:  The Maharashtra government will provide Rs 50 lakh insurance cover amount to the wife of a rural development officer from Parbhani district after he contracted COVID-19 while on duty and later died of it, a government resolution (GR) has said.

The state government had last month decided to provide such cover till September-end to its staffers/workers at gram panchayat and zilla parishad levels who are engaged in containing the coronavirus spread.
