The amount has been sanctioned from the Chief Minister's Relief Fund, officials said.
The amount has been released against the pending wages of Vikram Singh, who refused to leave a ship along with five other Indian nationals on account of the non-payment of their salaries for the past several months.
In a letter to Chief Minister Singh, Ms Swaraj had said the Indian consulate in Dubai had informed her ministry that Vikram and the others were stuck on the 'Sharjah Moon' ship, owned by a firm M/s Alco Shipping, an official spokesperson of the chief minister's office said.
The consulate said that the sailors had not been paid their salaries for about 6-12 months and the owner of the ship was refusing to cooperate.
She sought the state government's help in this regard, the spokesperson said in Chandigarh on Saturday.
The spokesperson said that Ms Swaraj had assured of Vikram's repatriation, at the earliest, once the state government makes provisions regarding the payment of his pending wages.
