All such donations are entitled to 100% income tax exemption under section 80G of the Income Tax act. In the press release, Chief minister Edappadi Pazhaniswamy said that it is not encouraged to present the contributions in person. However, he confirmed that the names of the individual or companies who are volunteering to donate more than 10 lakhs will be mentioned in newspapers. “Receipts will be sent for all contributions” the official press release read.

The release said hospitals with isolations wards and quarantine centres would have to be set up, and beds, ventilators, medicines, testing equipment and disinfectants would have to be provided. There is also a need to prepare the private hospitals to offer free treatment to the patients.
