Bharat Ratna

The Bharat Ratna  is the highest civilian award of the Republic of India. It was introduced on 2 January 1954.

The Bharat Ratna  award is conferred in recognition of exceptional service/performance of the highest order, without distinction of race, occupation, position, or sex.

The Bharat Ratna award was originally limited to achievements in the field of arts, literature, science, and public services, but in December 2011 the government included the criteria of any field of human endeavour.

The recommendations for the Bharat Ratna are made by the Prime Minister of India to the President, with a maximum of three nominees being awarded per year.

The recipients receive a Sanad (certificate) signed by the President and a peepal leaf-shaped medallion. There is no monetary grant associated with the award. Bharat Ratna awardee rank seventh in the Indian order of precedence.
