The situation is terribly worse in Northern Karnataka where 42 people lost their lives. Around 5 lakhs people have been displaced across Karnataka so far. As per the reports, the rains have started becoming less intense now and water levels have started receding as well.

At a time when there was a mass of destruction across various states in India due to deadly cyclones, the chairperson of Infosys Sudha Murthy has always come forward with a philanthropic gesture for the flood victims. In a recent development, she helped the people in North Karnataka.

The 68-year-old Padma Shri recipient has come forward to donate Rs 10 crore for flood relief in the state, as reported by Asianet.

Previously, Murthy had distributed Rs. 10 Lakh each to the families of the martyrs who had laid down their lives in Pulwama terror attack.
