An outcome of the joint efforts by Akshay and BSF (north) DIG Amit Lodha, who is also a friend of the actor, the website will have information on martyrs and their families along with bank details so that anybody willing to extend financial support can send money online. Government will launch the website. The website will also be connected to a mobile app which too will have all the information. A martyr’s family will be eligible for a total donation of Rs 15 lakh and once the family receives the desired amount, details of the family will be erased from the website.
“The country has a population of 125 crore and if 15,000 people gove Rs 100 then the family will get Rs 15 lakh in just four hours. Moreover, without filling any form, future of children of a martyr would be secured,” he said. Akshay has always taken a proactive role in helping martyrs’ families and has extended financial assistance to several of them. Families of three martyrs from the state — Gurnam Singh, Prabhu Singh and Narpat Singh — each received Rs 9 lakh from Kumar recently.
