|The COVID-19 pandemic and the related dislocation in normal economic activity has severely affected the economically weaker sections of the society and their means of livelihood. To help the people affected by any kind of emergency or distress situation, like the one posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Government of India has set up a public charitable trust named Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES Fund) to receive contributions from various sources.
Responding to the call to support this noble cause, the employees of the Reserve Bank have decided to contribute one or more days salary to the PM CARES Fund. The total contribution from the employees amounting to ₹7.30 crore is being remitted to the PM CARES Fund.
