Finance Ministry told to help those left out of govt schemes

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has tasked the Finance Ministry in finding ways to provide relief to those not covered by the government’s existing schemes, Finance Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said.

He added that he is considering whether the new endeavour should apply to state and private workers earning less than Bt100,000 per year or people hired at a daily wage of Bt350.

The government has launched a few subsidy and co-paying schemes to help people suffering from the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak. However, some groups have been left behind as they don’t meet the eligibility criteria.
