Haryana Government has directed officers concerned to make recommendations for Padma Awards by August 10, 2020

Chandigarh, June 30- Haryana Government has directed officers concerned to make recommendations for Padma Awards by August 10, 2020, in pdf format at the portal cs@hry.nic.in. The recommendations received after the due date shall not be considered.

Giving this information in this regard here today, an official spokesman said that the Padma Awards, namely, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri are among the highest civilian awards of the country, which are announced every year on Republic Day.

He said that in a letter sent by the Chief Secretary to all the Additional Chief Secretaries, Principal Secretaries, Divisional Commissioners, and all the Deputy Commissioners of the state, recommendations for Padma Awards were sought with complete name, address, date of birth, details of major events of that person's life and his current occupation or position, along with letter in both Hindi and English languages filled in the requisite performa so that it can be published. Besides, a Special Search Committee can be constituted to identify, consider, and finalize the recommendations or nominations.

He said that the persons recommended should be pre-eminently worthy of the Awards, looking at their lifetime achievements. The criteria of selection should invariably be 'Excellence Plus' and the highest standards should be applied while recommending persons for these awards. The existence of an element of public service in the achievements of the person recommended for the award would be a desirable factor.

He added that as the Padma Award is the second-highest civilian award of the country, it should be considered whether the recommended person has earlier been given any National award or a State award in his or her respective field. Efforts should be made to identify talented persons from amongst women, weaker sections of the society, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, Divyang persons, etc who deserve to be considered for the award. He informed that government employees, including employees working in public sector undertakings, will not be eligible for the Padma Awards, except for doctors and scientists.

He said that instituted in the year 1954, the award is given every year on the occasion of Republic Day. These awards seeks to recognize ‘work of distinction’ and is given for distinguished and exceptional achievements or service in all fields or disciplines, such as Arts, Literature and Education, Sports, Medicine, Social Work, Science and Engineering, Public Affairs, Civil Service, Trade and Industry etc. He said that all persons without distinction of race, occupation, position or gender are eligible for these awards. A copy of the statutes and rules governing these Awards is also available on the website: www.padmaawards.gov.in.

The spokesman said that nominations or recommendations for the Padma Awards will be received only on the online portal www.padmaawards.gov.in designed for this purpose. The nominations or recommendations should contain all the relevant details specified in the format available on the portal, which should clearly indicate the person's distinguished and exceptional achievements or services in their respective field or discipline. While recommending a person online it should be ensured that all the required details are properly filled. Information about the steps to be taken to make an online recommendation is available on the website.

He said that it has been observed in the past that while nominations are received in respect of a large number of persons; there could, however, be several talented persons who are left out of consideration despite exceptional contribution in their field. Often many such people may get overlooked primarily for the reason that they may not seek publicity or attention in the public domain. It is, therefore, requested to make concerted efforts in identifying such persons whose excellence and achievements deserve to be recognized and make suitable nominations in their favour. It goes without saying that recognition of such deserving persons will only add to the prestige of these Awards.
