Government institutes Subhash Chandra Bose annual award


In a welcoming move, Centre on Wednesday announced an annual award, to be given to organisations and individuals who help those affected in disasters, on the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

Titled ‘Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar’, the award will be announced every year on January 23. The recipient will receive a certificate and a cash prize of Rs 51 lakh.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised instituting an award so as to recognise the efforts of those who work and contribute effectively to alleviate the suffering of the affected population in the aftermath of any disaster. However, their service to humanity often goes unacknowledged and so this award was constituted.
