A Bench comprising Justice Shivaraj V Patil and Justice B N Srikrishna approved the welfare commissioner's action plan placed before the court and directed that the money be disbursed on "pro rata basis" from November 15.
The court agreed with the welfare commissioner's proposal to keep Rs 60 crore aside for those victims whose claims are still in various stages of adjudication.
