Uttarkashi, October 30
The Uttarakhand Government today distributed Rs 5.22 lakh as ex gratia among families displaced by the Tehri Dam. Urban Development Minister Pritam Singh Panwar held a meeting with people displaced by the dam in the Chinyasaur area of the district and handed over cheques for Rs 43,500 each to 12 of the families, official sources said.

He asked the officials present at the meeting to make ex gratia forms available to those affected families that have not been able to benefit from the scheme so far.
The minister also directed them to immediately solve the problems faced by people in the area and conduct a survey of the temples affected by the dam, so that railings near the Tehri lake could be constructed.
