New Delhi: It has been three months since floods ravaged Uttarakhand and CNN-IBN has now learned that compensation cheques have been dishonoured. More than a dozen compensation cheques given to victims of the Uttarakhand tragedy have bounced.
While the state government claims it has enough funds, the bank account from which cheques have been issued reportedly has zero balance.
"After the incident, the government gave me some relief through this money. But when I went to deposit the cheque they said the bank has no money and returned it," said a flood victim Radha Niwasi.
The Opposition has slammed what it calls the state government's failure to execute relief and rehabilitation.
