MUMBAI: India TV has come up with a new initiative that is called ‘Salaam India’ that will promote acts of courage and valor done by the common man. People who have risked their own lives to save another person’s life will be awarded for their act of bravery and to encourage the same in others.
Officers’ Choice packaged drinking water is the title sponsor for the awards that will present four categories - Bravery Awards, Gallantry Awards, Damini Awards and Special Awards. Nominations have been asked from all over the country.
India TV MD and CEO Ritu Dhawan said, “As a responsible news channel, it is indeed a matter of pride for us to attempt to bring to fore light the sense of true bravery, as an inspiration for the rest of the nation.” The event will be held on 28 September at the Taj Palace in New Delhi.
This is the second time that India TV is having an awards ceremony. The previous one was India TV Yuva Awards earlier this year.
