In Maharashtra, Women and Child Development Minister Yashomati Thakur said that apart from the decision taken by the State Cabinet to deposit one-time amount in the bank accounts of children who have lost both their parents due to COVID-19, efforts will be made to rehabilitate such children by making use of other schemes. She said, children who have lost both their parents due to COVID-19 have suffered a massive mental blow. It is imperative to give them motherly support.
