Those who want to contribute voluntarily to the families of CRPF jawans martyred in Pulwama terror attack can do so on the official website of 'Bharat Ke Veer'.
This fund is managed by a committee comprising Director Generals of Central Armed Paramilitary Forces (CAPFs) under the aegis of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
'Bharat Ke Veer' is a trust into which public can contribute voluntarily to support families of martyrs of CAPFs -- BSF, CRPF, CISF, ITBP, NDRF, NSG, SSB and Assam Rifles, the MHA said.
Expressing gratitude for the support, MHA said, "During the last few days there has been a tremendous response from people wanting to contribute through the website : bharatkeveer.gov.in."
However, due to heavy traffic, sometimes a slowdown is reported in accessing the website, it added.
"It is also reported that some unscrupulous elements are soliciting contributions from people through other accounts. It is advised that people desirous of supporting families of martyrs of CAPFs should only contribute through the website -- bharatkeveer.gov.in," the Ministry of Home Affairs said.
