Can't pay ₹4L compensation to Covid victims, will exhaust funds: Centre tells SC

In an affidavit in response to a PIL seeking minimum standards of relief and ex-gratia payment to COVID-19 victims, the Central government has told Supreme Court that Rs 4 lakh compensation cannot be paid to all those who died due to COVID-19, as this would exhaust the disaster relief funds. The Centre has said that compensation of Rs 4 lakh cannot be paid to victims of Covid-19 as the disaster management law mandating compensation applies only to natural disasters like earthquake, floods etc.
