A few days after the Uri terror attacks, a message on Whatsapp started doing the rounds. The message reads: “Pay only Rs 1 per day (Rupee one only). It then mentions details of a Syndicate Bank branch account where the money can be deposited. In an unprecedented move by the Modi government, citizens of India can now donate funds directly to the Army Welfare Account. A new scheme has been started exclusively for the Indian Army Battle Casualties and Weapon Purchase.
This is your chance to help the Indian Army and honour the jawans who lost their lives. We've created a platform which allows you to donate towards a support campaign raised for the martyrs, or their families. Make your contribution and show your solidarity with those who protect our nation.
