Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has launched "Bharat ke Veer" web portal and mobile application that will enable donors contribute towards the families of soldiers who lost their lives in the line on duty.
Home minister Rajnath Singh and Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju were also present in the function.
"The donated amount will be credited to the account of 'Next of Kin' of those Central Armed Police Force/Central Para Military Force soldiers and this domain also allows anyone to financially support the bravehearts of his/her choice or towards the 'Bharat Ke Veer' corpus," a Home Ministry statement said.
"This 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 another account.
