What is the Ruling on the Reward Received against Taking Part in the Task of Compensating Tobacco Farmers?

Recently, the ministry where I work has decided to disburse compensations for the tobacco farmers who were adversely affected ten years ago, so a committee, from amongst the employees, was formed to this end. It was also decided that members of the committee are to be granted a reward in appreciation of their efforts. The administration has also decided to add the names of distinguished employees to the reward list, although they weren`t members of the committee. Is the reward granted for working on compensating the tobacco farmers unlawful, and thus the money itself is ill-gotten? Also, is my receiving a reward for being a distinguished employee, although I wasn`t a member of that committee, lawful? This is knowing that I didn`t take a reward deserved by any other colleague nor was any of them displeased with that.
