The latest round of meetings of the council of ministers has decided to give Mahara a cheque for Rs 70 million. However the CPN (Maoist) has to provide the government with receipts and vouchers to keep record. Of the Rs 100 million allocated for the peace process, the government will keep Rs 30 million for internal management. The Maoists are to use this Rs 70 million to provide rations for their cadres. Although the government has agreed on rations, the cadres will not receive an allowance. The council of ministers met on Tuesday morning before the peace agreement was signed to agree on allocation of funds and to form various committees.
