Padma Awards


People's Padma

Over the last few years, Padma Awards have obtained a sense of inviolability with the government giving more importance to the work the nominees did, than to their identities. Departing from the tradition of selected persons recommending the nominations, the nomination process was opened to the public at large, thereby making it a people’s movement. The #PeoplesPadma movement marks a paradigm shift in Jan-Bhagidari for building a New India.

Recognizing our heroes - those working at the grass root levels, the 2018 Awards emphasizes on acknowledging the tireless efforts of those who have been rendering services to their communities and the society at large. MyGov presents an unprecedented opportunity for the citizens to get involved and be a part of this historic movement. Selected citizens will get a chance to attend the Padma Awards Ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and connect with our heroes!
