Bharat Ratna Award

Bharat Ratna Award Winners: Established on 2 January 1954, Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian award of the Republic of India. The award is conferred in recognizance of “exceptional service/performance of the highest order” without contrast of race, occupation, status or gender. Bharat Ratna award was originally delimited to achievements in the arts, literature, science and public services, but the government expanded the criteria in December 2011 to include “any field of human endeavour”. The recommendation for this award is made by the Prime Minister of India. The President is awarded a maximum of three nominees per year. The recipients get hold of a Sanad (certificate) signed by the President and a peepal leaf-shaped medallion. There is no monetary grant attached to the award. Bharat Ratna recipients are ranked seventh in the Indian ranking order.
