Last year, the government had launched a similar distribution of cash aid where around 3.5 million poor families who were affected by the pandemic received Tk2,500 each.

The release said the families in the disaster-prone areas, areas with more people in extreme poverty, the ratio of population were given priority while selecting the 3.5 million beneficiaries so that the extreme poor people and the jobless poor section of people come under the financial support program.

Under the program, day labourers, farmers, workers and transport workers will get such financial support. ICT has been used in the selection process of the beneficiaries.
