  • SBI has enabled a Unified Payment Interface (UPI)-led payment gateway for ‘Bharat Ke Veer’
  • The Centre has urged citizens to contribute through its fundraising initiative ‘Bharat Ke Veer’

After the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives, help for their families is pouring from different parts of the country. The Centre has urged citizens to contribute through its fund-raising initiative ‘Bharat Ke Veer’.

State Bank of India (SBI) has enabled a Unified Payment Interface (UPI)-led payment gateway for ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ to help people make contributions easily. SBI has communicated through its official Twitter handle that anyone can help the families of the CRPF victims by contributing through ‘Bharat Ke Veer’. “Let's all come together to make a difference, through the #BharatKeVeer initiative by the Government of India. You can help the bereaved families by contributing at bharatkeveer.gov.in or through UPI using VPA- bharatkeveer@sbi," SBI said in a tweet.

The 'Bharat Ke Veer' initiative was launched in April 2017 by the Ministry of Home Affairs with the purpose of enabling citizens to help the families of soldiers by donating money online.


According to a PTI report, the ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ contribution platform has received "unprecedented" donations of over 7 crore, officials said.

"The Ministry of Home Affairs expresses gratitude for the overwhelming support for Pulwama martyrs on ‘Bharat Ke Veer’, our web portal for your donations... The portal is experiencing a heavy surge of visitors due to which it is slowing down. We request patience while we work on technical solutions," the ministry tweeted.

Here is how you can contribute to the ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ fund:

1. Donate funds by visiting the bharatkeveer.gov.in website.

2. Click on ‘Contribute To’ tab at the top and select ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ Corpus Fund.

3. Provide your details, including name and email address.

4. Enter the amount you want to donate.

5. A payment gateway opens. Furnish your account details and donate the amount.

6. You can also download the 'Bharat Ke Veer' app before donating money.

The Noida-headquartered mobile wallet Paytm has also created a separate window for donations in the name of ‘CRPF Wives Welfare Association’. On selecting the ‘CRPF Bravehearts’ option on the Paytm mobile application, ‘CRPF Wives Welfare Association’ will appear by default under the ‘Donate to’ option. Users will be required to provide their names and quote their PAN card numbers and the amounts they wish to donate.
