The Haryana government has decided to honour those who were oppressed or went to jail during the Emergency between 15 June 1975 and 21 March 1977. Those who struggled for restoration of democratic values during the 18-month-long Emergency will be given ‘Tamra Patra’ on the Independence Day function, that is, 15 August 2015.

For this purpose, the Gurgaon district administration is preparing list of such persons. It also said that if the person who went to jail had died, their wife or next of kin can claim the honour on their behalf. If both the husband and wife had passed away, their next of kin could still reveal the names to the district administration and claim the Tamra Patra for them.

Besides, the district administration is also collecting articles, poems, features, news stories and other literature published during that period. This collection will be compiled into a book titled ‘Shubra Jyotsna’, which will be formally released on 26 January 2016.
