Why pm cares fund instead of PMNRF?
|PM CARES Fund vs PMNRF|
|The PM CARES fund is different from the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF), which was created in 1948 and has been used by the Union government ever since, even during the recent 2013 North India floods, the 2015 South Indian floods and the 2019 Kerala floods.
In a tweet on Monday, Shashi Tharoor said, This is important. Why not simply rename PMNRF as PM-CARES, given the PM’s penchant for catchy acronyms, instead of creating a separate Public Charitable Trust whose rules & expenditure are totally opaque? @PMOIndia you owe the country an explanation for this highly unusual step.
PM-CARES is different from the PM’s Relief Fund that has been used by the Union government for years even till the recent Kerala floods and other crises.
However, in view of the coronavirus crisis, the government has set up the new fund named PM-CARES.
Immediately after the fund was created a number of fake accounts popped up. While the original UPI account was PMCARES@SBI, Delhi Police booked unknown individuals for creating an account removing the ‘S’, PMCARE@SBI, intended to scam people.
