BANGKOK, Jan 14 – Finance Minister of Thailand Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said the new cash handout program known as “Rao Chana” (We Win) will cover 30-35 million Thai people affected by COVID-19, Thai news agency (TNA) reported.

Low-income earners who participate in the co-payment subsidy program would be entitled to the new handout program and could receive handouts through their e-wallet.

Other eligible groups will obtain handouts through the PromptPay system from this month to next month.

The new handout program would also welcome government welfare card holders, low-income vendors, food deliverymen and taxi motorcyclists.

Government officials, state enterprise employees and workers in the social security system would not be included, Arkhom said.

The government will give 3,500 baht (RM471) per month for two months under the new program.
