Starting in February or March residents of the five West Sea islands near the Northern Limit Line could receive monthly government support of around W50,000-60,000 (US$1=W1,118).
The Ministry of Pubic Administration and Security said Tuesday the plan was decided upon in a Cabinet meeting as part of a Special Law on supporting the residents there.
Only registered residents who have lived on one of the five islands for at least six months will be eligible.
