Padma Shri Award Winners List 2017 Awardees

Padma ShriPadma Shri is the fourth highest civilian award conferred by the Government of India, after the Bharat Ratna, the Padma Vibhushan and the Padma Bhushan. The Padma Shri is announced every year on January 26, on the occasion of India’s Republic Day.

The Padma Shri, like the other Padma Awards, was instituted in 1954. It is awarded to Indian citizens in recognition of their distinguished contributions in a variety of fields, such as arts and literature, business, industry, sports, science, medicine, public affairs and social service. It has also been awarded to non-citizens who have contributed to India in various ways.

Not more than 120 Padma Shris can be given during any one calendar year. The Padma Awards Committee draws a short list of the candidates to be awarded the Padma Shri based on recommendations from members of parliament, state governments, chief ministers, governors, eminent citizens, institutions of excellent and ministers of the central government.

The recommendations are presented to the Prime Minister, who takes the final decision with help from the Principal Secretary, Home Secretary, Cabinet secretary and Secretary to the President. The Prime Minister conveys his decision to the President, who confers the award to the recipients at a glittering function at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

The award consists of a certificate (Sanad) issued with the seal of the President and a medallion. The recipients are not given any cash prize and receive no monetary benefits such as allowances. As of 2017, 2,755 individuals have been conferred the Padma Shri.

This year 2017, the President of India has approved conferment of 75 Padma Shri Awardees. These awards are conferred by the President of India at ceremonial functions which are held at Rashtrapati Bhawan usually around March/ April every year.
