While annoucing the scheme last week, the government had said it would not be implemented in Tiruvarur in view of the model code of conduct in force there ahead of the originally scheduled January 28 bypoll.
"With the Election Commission having announced cancelling the bypoll, the government has ordered giving Rs 1000 each to 3.92 lakh families in Tiruvarur," an official release here said.
Bypoll to Tiruvarur was necessitated following the death of former chief minister M Karunanidhi on August 7 last year.
However, the EC on Monday called off the election after political parties wanted it to be put off citing the ongoing relief measures in Tiruvarur following cyclone Gaja.
Tiruvarur is one of the worst-hit districts in the Cauvery delta region of Tamil Nadu by to severe cyclonic storm in November last.
