Dalmia Bharat helps in collecting fund of Rs 13 cr for welfare of families of martyrs

NEW DELHI: In continuation to support the Bharat ke Veer initiative, Dalmia Bharat, the cement company, organised a fund-raising event at Teen Murti Bhavan, New Delhi on Saturday.

The event helped raise Rs 13 crore for families of CAPF martyrs from participation and contribution from patrons and Corporates Houses.

Started in 2016, Bharat Ke Veer is an initiative of the Hon’ble Home Minister to enable civilians to contribute to the family of the martyrs of Combined Armed Police Forces. At present the donation per family is limited to Rs 15 lakh which could generate an annuity of Rs 1.2 lakh pa (Rs 10,000 pm).

The Fund is directly administered by the Ministry of Home (Govt of India) and is given as an annuity or one-time grant to the family of the martyred soldier as desired by the donor.

The target is to raise Rs 1500 crore so that families of CAPF martyrs over the last 10 years can be benefitted.
