Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee  took to Instagram to share a written announcement of the contribution for the cause.

“After securing my employees, I am pledging Rs 1 crore of personal funds to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF), and an additional Rs 5 lakh to the Chief Minister of West Bengal’s Relief Fund, with the expectation that the money is used to ramp up medical facilities in the country,” the statement reads.
