All Members,

 

Subject:  Appeal for Contribution to the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency

               Situations Fund “PM CARES Fund”.

 

Dear Member,

 

          As you are all well aware that the entire Global Population is in the grips of the Novel Corona Virus – Covid 19 resulting in a medical emergency worldwide. Almost all the nations are in a lockdown including India to contain and prevent further escalation of this deadly virus.

 

            Our Government has been extremely proactive and vigilant to this threat and has initiated various measures and announced relief packages for it’s citizens and the industry in these dire circumstances when almost the entire commercial activity is in a state of lockdown resulting in hardships for our nation’s factory workers, daily wagers, poor and destitute.

 

            However, our Government needs your support not only in spirit but also in kind to combat this pandemic. The Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES Fund) was created on 28 March 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic in India. The fund will be used for combating, containment and relief efforts against the coronavirus outbreak and similar pandemic like situations in the future. 

 

We appeal to you to contribute to the PM CARES Fund to help the Government fight this pandemic and provide security to the poor, destitute and needy.

 

Any contribution made to the PM CARES Fund before 30 June 2020 would qualify for a full amount of tax exemption under (80G) Income Tax Act, 1961. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has announced that contributions to the PM CARES fund would be counted as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility with additional CSR being offset in subsequent years.

 

The contributions can be sent to the following account through bank transfer or online payments:-
