Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy announced a special Pongal gift package and a cash incentive of Rs 2,500. This for each of the 2.06 crore rice cardholders in the state. These distributed from starting January 4. Free dhotis and saris also distributed to the eligible beneficiaries during Pongal.

During his poll campaign in Edappadi assembly constituency, the chief minister stated many people lost jobs due to Covid-19. Heavy rain and cyclonic storm affected people in the delta region. Therefore considering the plight of the people, the state government decided to extend the cash incentive to each card holder.

“The department staff will distribute tokens to each cardholder at the doorstep, and the cardholders can collect their gift hamper and the cash gift on the scheduled date from the PDS outlets,” the CM said.

Each gift hamper contains one kg of raw rice, one kg of sugar, a piece of sugarcane, 20 gram of cashew, 20 gram of dry grapes and 5 gram of cardamom.
Similarly in 2019, the chief minister announced a Rs 1,000 Pongal cash gift for each cardholder.
