ISLAMABAD Despite the claims of incumbent government to release cash compensation amount before Eid-ul-Fitar, the ground realities in most of floods affected areas is quite contrary to claims as still assessment is in middle of process. Government has time and again assured to release cash compensation of Rs 20,000 to floods victims in the country before Eid, claiming that assessment survey was underway and affectees would be compensated. Govt may not be able to release cash compensation in over 75 percent floods affected areas as still assessment was not carried out in many areas of southern Punjab and Sindh, official sources told TheNation. In a bid to facilitate flood affectees provincial government had made a committee comprising three members including notable of the area (senior citizen of good repute), teacher of the area and Patwari to make assessment in the areas. The committee members were asked to arrange Digital cameras to take pictures of affected areas but still in many of areas cameras were not arranged, a representative of the area informed requesting anonymity. The assessment survey was even not formally initiated in badly affected areas in southern Punjab including Kot Adu, Muzafargarh, Jam Pur, Sadiq Abad etc and many of the areas in Sindh. What to talk about compensation money as still assessment was not started in our area. We are getting relief items but no chances of compensation before Eid, said an affectee, talking to TheNation. It may be mentioned here that the government has released compensation amount for the affectees of the devastating floods in Hazara division and is claiming to start other areas but before Eid 75 per cent would remain deprived from compensation cash. It is also relevant to note here that in many of the areas flood water has now started receding its level specially in Sindh so cash compensations claim could not be materialised there. Keeping in view the destruction and loss of lives caused in flood hit areas, the National Database and Registration Authority has decided to provide free of cost duplicate CNICs to flood victims. The idea was floated to start compensation cash in the area but assessment process may not be materialised in seven days. For photo session some of the areas would be compensated and a large number of areas will remain deprived from it, said a flood affectte from Kot Adu , sensing the ground reality of his badly affected area.
