Out of 4,813 beneficiaries living in risky areas, only four beneficiaries were provided Rs. 200,000 before the formation of this government, but now 2,794 beneficiaries have received such support.

Out of 753 archaeological heritages damaged in 14 most affected districts, 80 were reconstructed before this government, while 387 have been reconstructed now.
