Karmaveer Purashkar is a popular award assigned for senior citizens. It is a National People's Awards for Citizen Social Justice and Action instituted by the citizens and people of India. These awards are actually instituted by iCONGO- Confederation of NGOs - a Public-Private-People partnership in association with other partners from industry, media, government, students, SMEs and other sectors as a part of the Right every Wrong Movement. All winners of the award are dubbed "The Noble Laureates". These awards seek to celebrate and inspire individual citizen social responsibility, justice and action initiatives and are held every year on 26th November, the day the Indian Constitutional Pledge was signed.
Awards For Real-Life Unsung Heroes
The iCONGO believes in the theory of awarding the best of talents. In a country of almost 1.2 billion Indians, we have many awards for movie stars and other achievers launched by tobacco, FMCG, media and beverage brands as marketing campaigns but Karmaveer Purashkar believes to recognise the real-life unsung heroes who believe that it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness by leading a change. Karmaveer Puraskaar is given to change dreamers and doers who practise philanthropy for social justice.
For the first time, these awards are for individual citizens from various sectors, for excellence and best practices in promoting social justice and action in their sector. Citizens are nominated and selected in the corporate, government, media, SME, students and other sectors, who have contributed to social justice and action. The award is given to citizens individually for their contribution in leading change and is not for any organization.
