- The Assam government Wednesday announced that it would deposit Rs 2,500 each to over seven lakh bank accounts of tea garden workers that were opened just after the demonetisation drive two years ago. This amount is the second installment of the Rs 5,000 incentive announced in the budget for 2017-18 last year. "The state government approved release of Phase-II of the scheme. All beneficiaries covered during the Phase-I will receive the second part of Rs 2,500 in their bank accounts on January 15, 2019," Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said at a press conference.
