What are the two national funds that the prime minister has in his name ? Where can the money be used?

Dear student,

Prime Minister has the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund which is headed by him. The  money is released for expenditure out of the fund at the direction and command  of the Prime Minister.
A very large proportion of the funds  is committed  to be used in phases  for various schemes announced by PM. Funds are also reserved  for medical assistance, floods, drought, terrorist violence, natural disasters and such other emergency situations.

Another Fund created is the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund. It is set up to deal with with any kind of emergency or distress situation, like posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to provide support and financial assistance to the needy.The fund  depends on voluntary contributions from individual or organisations and is exempted from any  budgetary support.
