Amid the lockdown for coronavirus outbreak, 34.28 lakh beneficiaries will get an advance of Rs 1,273 crore from the Maharashtra social justice department, which provides financial assistance to widows and senior citizens from the economically weaker sections and physically disabled, state deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar said on Monday.

The advance payment is for the months of April, May and June, he said.

"Some schemes also have a component that is received from the Centre. However, the Centre has given just Rs 130 crore and the rest of the amount is being provided by the state itself," Pawar said.
