Mao, NN and T Khel Market Relief Committee on Thursday extended cash relief to the building owners, vendors and tenants affected by the fire that broke out at Mao Market on February 27.
The committee which was formed in the aftermath of the incident, collected Rs. 28 lakh through the collection from well-wishers, churches, Kohima Chamber of Commerce & Industries, Chief Minister of Manipur and legislators.
Nagaland government had earlier extended cash relief of Rs 50 lakh to the vendors of the markets and tenants living in adjoining houses.
They said that the relief collected through the generous contribution of well-wishers was even extended to the market building and residential building owners, beside 109 variety shop vendors, 44 vegetable vendors and 17 families or tenants in residential buildings.
Bethel Hospital and Sokhriezou Market complex were also partially impacted by the fire, however the owners willfully refused to accept the relief, the committee said.
