Apart from this, the government has also decided that the remuneration to the volunteers would be made through in their bank accounts, the spokesman said.

The call out roster of volunteers would be made available at the website of the department from July so as to ensure transparency in this system, he said.

Apart from this, no payments would be made through cheque or in cash rather the payment of remuneration would be made through latest by first week of the month, he said.

He said that in 2016, the government has increased the remuneration of all volunteers from Rs 300 to Rs 572 per day which resulted in additional burden of Rs 50 crore on the government.
