New Delhi: Union Home Minister would inaugurate the web portal and mobile application named “Bharat ke Veer” here tomorrow which is an IT-based platform, with an objective to enable the willing donors to contribute towards the family of a braveheart who sacrificed his/her life in line of duty. The Minister of State for Home Affairs and cine actor would also participate in the function.

The site “Bharat ke Veer” would be available on web portal as well as mobile application. The amount so donated would be credited to the account of ‘Next of Kin’ of those Central Armed Police Force/Central Para Military Force soldiers. This domain would allow anyone to financially support the families of the martyrs. The website is technically supported by National Informatics Centre (NIC) and powered by State Bank of India.
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 the account of a family member of another martyr or to the “Bharat Ke Veer” corpus. "Bharat Ke Veer” corpus would be managed by a committee made up of eminent persons and senior Government officials, who would decide to disburse the fund equitably to the martyr’s family on the need basis.
