‘Bharat Ke Veer’ initiative was launched by Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh with Akshay Kumar in April this year. ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ corpus is supported by web and app based platforms to facilitate online donation directly to the families of paramilitary troopers who have sacrificed their lives for the country since January 1, 2016. Now, any one can donate directly to individual braveheart’s account (upto max of Rs 15 lakhs) or may donate to the “Bharat Ke Veer” corpus.
With Akshay Kumar being its brand ambassdor, ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ initiative is now a very well known among public and thousands of people have contributed.
