Mumbai: Maharashtra Government on Saturday ordered a survey to ascertain the damage caused due to the recent unseasonal rains in various parts of the state.

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, who took charge last week, directed his Ministers to supervise the survey in their respective districts and submit a report before the Cabinet in
its meeting next week.

Addressing a press conference after the first meeting of his new Cabinet here, he said the meet took stock of the crop situation in the state.

"After the ministers submit their report, a detailed discussion would take place in the next Cabinet meeting on November 24 to finalise the steps to be taken for compensation
