1 lakh rupee compensation for low-income Indians died of Covid in Kuwait

Indian Embassy announced that the Indian Community Support group (ICSG), set up by the Indian Embassy for providing relief to the Community during the hard time of the Covid-19 pandemic, will donate 1 lakh rupee to those low-income Indians who died of Covid-19 in Kuwait, Ambassador Shri Sibi George announced during his open house at the Indian Embassy.

Any Indian nationals who are getting less than 120 KD salary and died of Covid-19 in Kuwait are eligible to get this, Ambassador said.

According to the latest statistics, more than 540 Indians died of Covid in Kuwait. More than 100 are domestic workers who are getting less than 120 KD salary.

"I know 1 lakh is not a big amount for the family, but I hope this will be of some relief to their immediate kith and kin," Ambassador Sibi George said.

The embassy will identify the legal heir of the deceased and hand over the amount, Ambassador said.

Highly appreciated decision, however, it has to be considered up to KD 180 salary, who was working in Companies without room and food (will have to pay >80 KD minimum for it monthly), mean they we''re getting only less than 100/month practically.

Good move by ambassador. But the employees who earn less than KD. 200 should come under this category. Some get KD. 100 with food and accomodation. But most of employees have to spend more than KD. 100 just for food and accomodation.

God Bless all.
