Reliance Industries (RIL) has said that it will continue to provide salaries for five years to the nominee of employees who succumbed to the disease and the tuition fees of their children.
The second wave of the coronavirus is causing the biggest damage in India. Recovering the corona from the second wave has been the biggest challenge. The government and the companies they work for have been providing various assistance to corona victims. In that regard, Reliance has announced various welfare schemes for the families of the victims.
In a statement, Reliance said, “The loss of everyone in our Reliance family is irreparable. Which can severely affect our collective conscience. Nothing can compensate for the loss of our loved ones. We have a duty to help everyone with the strength of our faith alone in these tough times.

Reliance further said that under the ‘Reliance Family Support and Welfare Scheme’, it would fully fund tuition fees, hostel accommodation and books of all the children of the employee, up to bachelors degree at any institute in India.
The full medical expenses for the wife, parents and children will be paid until the child of the deceased employee completes his bachelor’s degree.
