The information in the database is based on the earlier database compiled by NIScPR - (erstwhile INSDOC & NISCAIR) under the sponsorship of National Science and Technology Management Information System (NSTMIS) and further updated and web-enabled by the Society for Environment and Development (SED), Delhi. The information is based on response received through questionnaire, newspapers, journals, respective websites of sponsoring organisations etc.
This database lists awards originating from India only and does not include international awards like Nobel Prize etc. The lifetime achievement awards and internal awards are also not included.
Awards and awardee details in the database are based on the information provided by the sponsoring organisation. The awards has been categorised as per the classification used by the sponsoring agency. Still many more awards are to be incorporated. Its critical mass is now open to the public to populate this.
Although SED, Delhi has taken all the precautions in putting the information in the database. However, for any errors/omissions, if crept in the database, DST shall not be held liable. Suggestions, clarification, modification to strengthen the database are most welcome.
