For the JBYA, a platform under Young Bangla initiative, a total of 8 divisional meets, since January, were held across the country which seen as many as 1469 potential young achievers submitted their success stories. After a rigorous scrutiny, CRI finally selected top 60 potential candidates for their landmark attainments in five different sectors. At the event, the top 30 candidates have received the recognition of their contribution towards society.
