An official release on Monday said the government also announced Rs 25,000 each for those critically injured and Rs 10,000 each for those who sustained minor injuries as compensation in Jalore, Sirohi, Pali and Barmer districts.

The relief amount will be provided from the chief minister's relief fund.

The decision was taken at a review meeting chaired by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

Raje, at the high-level meeting attended by Chief Secretary Ashok Jain and other senior officials, discussed the situation in the flood-hit areas and gave necessary directions.

The chief minister also instructed the officials to conduct a survey of villages where losses to crops are more than 50 percent.

She asked them to repair bridges and dams which have been damaged due to the floods.

Earlier in the day, Raje visited flood-hit areas in Jalore and Sirohi, and reviewed the situation there.
