Chandigarh: On the eve of the country’s 75th Independence Day, the Punjab government on Sunday announced to restart the Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh State Yuva Award, which was lying defunct for long. Two youth from each district of the state will get the award.

The aim to resume this award is to make the youth a partner in the development of the state, besides empowering them. The Yuva Bhavan constructed in Chandigarh is also being renovated and revived as a centre of excellence.

Sports and Youth Services Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer said the government is making efforts to disseminate the ideology of Bhagat Singh and prepare the youth for taking leadership role in the state.

The award carries a cash amount of Rs 51,000, a medal, a scroll, a blazer and a certificate.

The award is given to two persons in the age of 15 to 35 years from each district of the state. Youth welfare activities, NCC, NSS, social services, cultural activities, sports, national unity, blood donation, awareness against drugs, educational merit, heroic deeds, scouts and guiding and adventure activities are the criterion for bestowing the award.
