With an endeavour to acknowledge, salute and applaud heroic acts of courage, NTPC felicitated India’s 18 brave hearts who were conferred with the esteemed National Bravery Award 2017 on Republic Day. Out of the courageous seven girls and eleven boys who were honoured at a function held at NTPC’s Power Management Institute, three brave souls were felicitated posthumously.
Congratulating the award winners on behalf of NTPC, Ajit Bhatnagar, Executive Director (PMI), said “The courage and compassion showcased by these children is commendable. Their bravery, valour and sacrifice serves as an inspiration for all Indians to dutifully perform their responsibilities towards humanity. We salute them and wish them all luck and success for their future endeavours.”
Emerging as one of the leading integrated power majors, NTPC strongly believes in supporting and encouraging acts that have a positive impact on the society at large.
The children, hailing from different geographical locations, received the National Bravery Award from the Prime Minister and were a part of the parade on Republic Day.
