Bharat Ratna, Padma Awards cannot be used as Titles before Name: Government

February 12, 2019:

The article is about ‘Abolition of titles’ & its section 1 states, ‘No title, not being a military or academic distinction, shall be conferred by the State.’

The Bharat Ratna & Padma awards are not titles & cannot be used as prefix or suffix to names & they can be withdrawn in case of misuse, the government said Tuesday.

Replying to a written question in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said the national awards such as Bharat Ratna, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan & Padma Shri “do not amount to titles within the meaning of Article 18(1) of the Constitution & thus are not to be used as prefixes or suffixes to the name of the recipient in any manner whatsoever”.

The article is about ‘Abolition of titles’ & its section 1 states, “No title, not being a military or academic distinction, shall be conferred by the State.”

The minister said that in case of any misuse, the defaulter shall forfeit the national award conferred on him or her by following the procedure laid down in regulation 10 related to creation of these awards.

Regulation 10 states that the president may cancel & annul the awards of the decoration to any person & thereupon his or her name shall be erased from the register & the awardee shall be required to surrender it.

The minister said in his reply that immediately after these awards are conferred, every awardee (except a posthumous case) is communicated the rules & advised not to prefix or suffix the award to his or her name.

As many as 38 personalities have been awarded with Bharat Ratna, country’s highest civilian award, since 1955 when it was instituted to recognise the work of people in politics, science, space, education, medicine & other areas.

Similarly, 307 people have been awarded Padma Vibhushan, 1,255 Padma Bhushan & 3,005 Padma Shri.
