GUWAHATI: Assam Health Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, on 21st May, said that under the AssamCares scheme, the second instalment of Rs 2,000 will be released to the bank accounts of people who are still residing outside the state and have already registered for the same.
"Rs 70 crores will be released tomorrow (May 22) and more than 3 lakh people will be benefitted," said Sarma.
Already Rs 72,23,40,000 has been released for the first instalment last month.
Also, a third instalment for the month of June will be provided.
