New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Rashtriya Bal Puraskar awardees on the occasion of National Girl Child Day on Monday and as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.

Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Zubin Irani and Minister of State Munjpara Mahendrabhai were also present on the occasion.

The Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar (PMRBP) is given as recognition to children aged between five and 18 years with exceptional abilities and outstanding achievement in six fields — innovation, scholastic achievements, sports, arts and culture, social service, and bravery.

Each awardee was given a medal, a cash prize of Rs 1,00,000, and a certificate. During the function, the prime minister gave digital certificates to the winners of PMRBP-2022 using blockchain technology. The certificates were also given to winners of PMRBP-2021, who could not be given the certificates last year due to the COVID-19 situation.

Block Chain Technology is being used for the first time for giving certificates to awardees of PMRBP.
