India will send holiday payment to Amazon Christmas Payers and Amazon Holiday Bakery Champion, an industry body, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (IMET) said on Tuesday.

The announcement came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday that the government would soon launch a ‘Christmas Pay’ scheme for all eligible customers, including online platforms and retailers, as part of a campaign to boost holiday spending.

The ministry has also said that the scheme would provide a holiday allowance to all eligible citizens of India as well as businesses and households that have a ‘holiday income’ of ₹1 crore.

The scheme would offer an additional payment of ⁹2,000 to every eligible household of the country, with an additional amount for businesses of ℹ10 lakh to ℂ15 lakh, the ministry said.

The government has said that Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Christmas pay’ initiative would be launched soon.

“In the coming days, the government will launch a scheme of Christmas Pay for all the eligible citizens.

This will ensure that the money received by these customers will go towards Christmas celebrations.

The scheme will include ₼3,000 for every eligible citizen,” the ministry had said.

On December 1, 2017, Modi had announced the ‘Christmas’ pay scheme, wherein the government was providing ₜ500 a year to every household for every year of its income.

The Prime Minister also said in the tweet that Prime Ministers will set up a Christmas Pay centre to make the scheme more effective.
