PADMA AWARDS

The Padma Awards are one of India’s highest civilian accolades, given out on the eve of Republic Day every year. The three categories of awards are as follows:-

  1.  Padma Vibhushan which is given for extraordinary and distinguished service
  2.  Padma Bhushan for distinguished service of higher level
  3. Padma Shri for distinguished service in any field

The award is intended to reward accomplishments in all professions or disciplines where public service is a factor. The profession may include art, sports, trade, and industry etc. They are given out based on the recommendations of the Padma Awards Committee, which is formed every year by the Prime Minister. The public is invited to participate in the nomination process. Even one can nominate oneself. These honors are open to everyone, regardless of ethnicity, occupation, status, or gender. Government employees, including those who work for PSUs, are not eligible for these awards, with the exception of physicians and scientists. 

The President has authorized the conferment of 119 Padma Awards this year, including one dual case in which the Award is considered as one. There are seven Padma Vibhushan awards, ten Padma Bhushan awards, and 102 Padma Shri awards on the list. There are 29 women among the honorees, as well as 10 foreigners, NRIs, PIOs, and OCIs, 16 posthumous awards, and one transgender awardee. The list is as follows:-
