This Monday, about 47 inspiring personalities got Padma Awards by President Mr. Ram Nath Kovind. The list of prominent individuals includes renowned people at higher posts like Kuldip Nayar: the journalist, S Jaishankar: former foreign secretary, and even actors.

Earlier this year, about 56 awardees were announced to be given Padma Awards. President made the honours today and handed over the awards to the prominent personalities. Among the individuals, Kader Khan was also being awarded the award. He had died at the age of 81 last year in December.

Many inspiring personalities in India also received the award including Prabhu Deva, John Chambers, Hukumdev Narayan Yadav, Viswanathan Mohanlal, Bajrang Punia: the wrestler, Shankar Mahadevan Narayan, Karia Munda: a former deputy Lok Sabha speaker, and many more.

More details about the award

As much as 112 inspiring personalities were chosen to be awarded this year. Their names were already mentioned back in the Republic day. The Padma Awards, however, was not given at that time. Home ministry officials stated that the remaining will be awarded by 16th of March.

In general, the Padma awards are specifically divided into three sections: Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan, and Padma Vibhushan. The award is specifically given to honor the highest citizens of the country.

According to the officials, the list of Padma Award has gone beyond the expectations, impacting a larger citizen base.

Before the selection of the awardees, the officials had the nominations of about 50,000 personalities this year. Back in 2014, the nominations were limited to just 2,200. This happened because of the inclusion of technology to determine the appropriate personality for this award. The technology was specifically included this year to reward more unsung heroes of Indian civilization this year.

Twitter responses of the reward

Twitter was filled with the responses from the awardees today. Even PM Modi joined the session and blessed the individuals with his presence.

The third highest civilian award goes to Mohanlal.
