Amount of Assistance / Terms & Conditions

 

This is an ongoing scheme. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was one of the most prominent personalities of India, who actively participated in the struggle for freedom and made an indelible impact on the minds of people of the country particularly the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, who constitute more than 25% of the total population. They revere him as their messiah. It was because of his untiring efforts that special provisions were incorporated in the Constitution of India to secure justice, liberty and fraternity for down trodden people of the country, who had suffered for centuries and due to such provisions, today they are living with dignity. It was he, who along with some other leaders of his time, strived to get the untouchability removed from the country. The Constitution of India prepared by him is a living monument in his memory.

 

 

With the passage of time, the people are forgetting his ideals of service to the down trodden people. It is quite essential to inculcate such ideals in the new generation of the nation as a whole and SC/ST in particular so that the country moves in the direction as envisaged in the preamble of the Constitution framed by Dr. Ambedkar. This can be best done if his ideals are kept alive. For doing this, it is proposed to institute an award in his memory which will be known as "Dr. Ambedkar Ratan Award". The award will include an amount of Rs.1.00 lakh, a citation and a shawl. The award will be given to an eminent personality or institution, which has done pioneering work in the socio-economic development of the Scheduled Caste in Delhi. A committee of eminent persons has been constituted to decide the name of the person or institution(s) to whom this award will be given. The award will be presented by a prominent personality in a function to be organized in a befitting manner.
