Chief Minister Tamang took to social media to convey his appreciation, stating, "#Gratitude to Hon'ble PM Shri @narendramodi ji and Hon'ble Finance Minister Smt @nsitharaman ji for releasing Rs 283.10 crore for Sikkim as an additional tax devolution instalment."

The disaster also led to the destruction of a hydropower project dam at Chungthang in North Sikkim, compounding the challenges faced by the region.
