Dhyan Chand Award 2002 to 2017 | National Sports Award

Dhyan Chand Award is a prestigious prize given by the Government of India to deserving sportspersons for lifetime achievement in sports. The award was instituted in 2002 and carried a cash prize of Rs. 5 lakh, a scroll of honor and a statuette. The award is not given to more than 4 sportspersons in any calendar year.

The prestigious award is named after Dhyan Chand, considered to be the greatest hockey player ever. Dhyan Chand was the undoubted star of the Indian hockey team in the 1920s and 1930s, which won multiple gold medals in the Olympics during this period. There has never been a hockey player like Dhyan Chand and he is a true legend. It is fitting that an award as important as this one has been constituted in his name.

The Dhyan Chand Award is different from the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna  and the Arjuna Award as it is not just awarded to sportspersons based on their recent performances – It is given to deserving sportspersons for their contribution to sports over a lifetime, including for their work after retirement.

Some of the recipients of the Dhyan Chand Award such as Zeeshan Ali (Tennis), Gurmail Singh (Hockey) and Rajkumar Baisla (Wrestling) were honored for contributing to the development of the sports and in assisting a younger generation of athletes and sportspersons following their retirement.

The recipients of this award are expected to exhibit leadership, discipline and have all the attributes of sportsmanship. The awardees are chosen by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports based on recommendations from the Indian Olympic Association, all recognized National Sports Federations and all state governments.
