Rs. 3.2 million Rs of the collected money is held as a bank fixed deposit, with half of the yearly interest in the future made available for disbursement. The remaining interest will be accumulated with the fund as a counter-inflationary measure. 140,000 Rs. the remaining money collected, will be available in 2017 for disbursement.
