Not a single rupee has been allocated by the central government in case of shortage and excess rainfall. In a written reply to a question posed by Talala MLA Bhagbhai Bhai Barad in the Assembly Questionnaire, the state government said it had written a letter to the Center in 2018 for a shortfall of Rs 175.2.25 crore, while the total demand in 2019 was Rs 3370.31 crore. 






Similarly, the state government had sought Rs 7239.47 crore from the central government in the year 2020 for heavy rains.




Even a year later, the Center did not respond
In the last one year, due to the shortage, in the meeting of the high level committee of NDRF, Rs. 127.60 crore was sanctioned. The NDRF deposit of the state is 50 per cent of Rs 2355.12 crore which is Rs 1177.56 crore. The amount sanctioned by the High Level Committee is Rs. 127.60 crore, of which 50 per cent was actually zero due to the state government as the central government had written a letter to the state government. 



The Center had replied that the amount was not received as per the SDRF rule due to shortage, but no reply was received even a year after the central government's letter demanding heavy rains.
