S&T Awards in India

Motivation and recognition are the catalysing forces to enhance the deliverable capacities of humans. The concept to bestow awards for one's achievement is to provide recognition and honour to motivate the person or organisation. As a follow-up of this philosophy, hundreds of awards have been instituted in India since its independence.

The database of S&T awards in India is an attempt to manage the information about the awards that have been instituted since 1928 (pre-independence). The database conceptualised by the NSTMIS, DST was initially compiled by NIScPR - (erstwhile INSDOC & NISCAIR) under the sponsorship of National Science and Technology Management Information System (NSTMIS) Division, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. It is now updated and has been made web-enabled by the Society for Environment and Development (SED), Delhi.
