In view of the pandemic, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has set up the CM assistance fund for those who want to help the state government to fight the outbreak of coronavirus.

The information with regards to the CM Assistance Fund is as follows:

  • Chief Minister’s Relief Fund-COVID 19
  • Savings Bank Account number 39239591720
  • State Bank of India
  • Mumbai Main Branch,
  • Fort Mumbai 400023
  • Branch Code 00300
  • IFSC CODE- SBIN0000300

Moreover, these donations are 100 per cent exempt from income tax deduction as per 80 (G) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

On the other hand, legendary playback singer Lata Mangeshkar has contributed INR 7 lakhs to Maharashtra Chief Minister’s relief fund to help combat the coronavirus pandemic in the state. On Saturday, May 1, the Directorate General of Information and Public Relations (DGIPR) of the Maharashtra government shared the news on social media. In addition, actor-producer Priyanka Chopra donated money and urged the global community to help India, which she said is “bleeding” due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Furthermore, several celebrities have stepped forward to help people either by donating funds or by using their social media account to amplify SOS calls.

Meanwhile, the state government had earlier announced that it will provide free vaccines to 5.71 crore beneficiaries aged between 18-45 years as India gears up for the third phase of the inoculation drive from May 1. While minister Nawab Malik had already announced the same on Sunday, there was confusion after Congress opposed the announcement, saying the decision will be taken by CM Uddhav Thackeray.
