DHFL Pramerica Life Insurance Co. Ltd. felicitated 8,374 students and 28 schools during the grand finale of the second season of Behtar India Campaign in New Delhi on Monday. The campaign’s ambassador, actor Parineeti Chopra, presented the awards and medallions to the winning students and schools. 

Launched in 2017, the Behtar India campaign is a social collaboration initiative that rallies different segments of the society together to work towards making their cities cleaner, greener and healthier. Based on the three main pillars of Behtar Swasthya, Behtar Swachhta, and Behtar Vatavaran, it supplements the government's efforts to provide promotive and preventive healthcare to the community.   

Anoop Pabby, MD & CEO, DHFL Pramerica Life Insurance Co. Ltd., said: “It is our belief that each of us has a role to play towards sustainability and that is the message we have sent through Behtar India. Development can be termed as sustainable if it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. For us supporting sustainability is one of the smartest investments we can make for our own future. Behtar India 2018-19 has been a huge success and we are overwhelmed to see the response from schools and students from across the country. We like to congratulate the winning schools and students for their contribution to the campaign and the corporates for their valuable support to this unique initiative.” 

Chopra said, “I am so happy and honoured to be a part of the Behtar India campaign. I associated myself with this campaign because the cause is close to my heart. We are delighted that such a large number of students from across the country have participated in this campaign. These students are the future of our country and we want to educate them and make them more responsible towards making a Behtar India through community service.”
