The same tweet comes after the Government launched an initiative to identify persons who are working on the ground. The Union Home Ministry has appealed to all Union Ministries, States, and other awardees to identify persons whose excellence and achievements should be recognized.
In his first 'Mann Ki Baat' address of the year in January, PM Modi had appealed to the people of the country to learn from "individuals who work selflessly to learn about the heroic hero." He also shared a link to the Padma Awards portal where people can post their nominations. An official release said that nominations or recommendations for Padma awards will be received online. The Government has also made provision for self-nomination.
