The Delhi government on 21 September 2016 cleared a proposal of having state-level bravery awards. These awards will be given out on Independence Day and Republic Day every year.
As per the proposal, 10 awards will be given and will carry a cash award of 2 lakh rupees each. The winners will be selected as per the nominations by the public.
Every year, the Centre gives National Bravery Awards to 25 children from across India for their meritorious acts of bravery against all odds.
Besides, it also decided that Delhi Fire Services, Delhi Police, and other uniformed personnel will be covered by the 1 crore rupees ex gratia amount for death on duty. So far, the government had been covering Delhi Police, armed forces, paramilitary forces and other uniformed forces such as Home Guards under its compensation policy.
