Cabinet approves Bt217bn cash handout scheme


The Cabinet on Tuesday approved the “RaoChana” (We Win) cash handouts scheme to mitigate the impact of the new Covid-19 outbreak.

The scheme will hand two monthly payments of Bt3,500 to the self-employed, farmers and welfare card holders whose savings do not exceed Bt500,000.

People can register for the cash payments online from January 29 onward.

About 31 million people will be eligible for the scheme, which will cost an estimated Bt217 billion.
