The union home minister, Rajnath Singh has launched “Bharat ke Veer” app on the occasion of Valour Day of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). 
 
The app’s objective is to enable willing donors to contribute towards the family of a braveheart who sacrificed his/her life in line of duty. The amount so donated will be credited to the account of ‘Next of Kin’ of those Central Armed Police Force/Central Para Military Force soldiers. Akshay Kumar was the guest of honour during the function.

Speaking on the occasion, Rajnath Singh said that he pays heartfelt tribute to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the safety of nation. He said that each moment of lives of CRPF and CAPF personnel is a test of their courage and bravery. He said that a bullet can hit a soldier physically, but no bullet can defeat the courage and motivation of a soldier. The bravery of CRPF commandant, Chetan Cheetah is an example of it who survived 9 bullets, Shri Rajanth Singh added.

Speaking on the occasion, Rajnath Singh thanked the actor Akshay Kumar for contributing his ideas to the launch of portal “Bharat ke Veer”. He said that he is satisfied that this portal will be successful and will act as a motivation to the brave soldiers.” 

 
Rajnath Singh appealed to the nation to visit the web portal and contribute maximum towards the corpus. 
 
He also said that the martyr’s family should get a support of minimum Rs one crore and the government would meet the gaps, if any. He said that 45-50% decline in the LWE incidents, 75% decline in incidents in North-East and decline in terror-incidents in Jammu and Kashmir during the last three years is the contribution of the Forces.”

Speaking on the occasion, actor Akshay Kumar said that this web portal has been designed in a record time of just two and a half months. He said that it will act as a support to the families of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the nation.”

This website is technically supported by National Informatics Centre (NIC) and powered by State Bank of India (SBI). To ensure maximum coverage, a cap of 15 lakh rupees is imposed and the donors would be alerted if the amount exceeds, so that they can choose to divert part of the donation to another braveheart account or to the “Bharat Ke Veer” corpus. 

 
“Bharat Ke Veer” corpus would be managed by a committee made up of eminent persons of repute and senior government officials, who would decide to disburse the fund equitably to the braveheart’s family on need basis.
