Recent floods in Assam and Bihar have made many homeless. Reports state that more than 1.17 crore people have been affected by the calamity, around 123 people have lost their lives in Bihar and 75 in Assam.
According to the Assam State Disaster Management (ASDMA), 34,92,734 people in 2,753 villages in 18 districts have been affected. In Bihar, 82.12 lakh people under 1,241 panchayats of 106 blocks in the 13 districts have been affected, says the Bihar Disaster Management Department.
