The kin of those killed in yesterday's Ghatkopar building collapse will be given an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh each, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced in the Legislative Council today.
The residential building collapsed last morning, killing 17 people.

Earlier in the day, the CM told the Assembly the kin of the deceased would be given an ex-gratia of Rs two lakh each and those with permanent injuries Rs one lakh. He also said the medical expenses of the injured will be borne by the government.
He hiked the compensation amount in the Upper House.

Leader of Opposition in the Council Dhananjay Munde has sought a raise in the compensation amount. 

"We will see how we can provide an ex-gratia relief of Rs five lakh without making any changes in the standing order," Fadnavis said.
