NEW DELHI: In a bid to make the Padma awards selection process more transparent, the government has launched an interactive website with around 4,400 awardees, allowing users to explore details about the winners.

The website, www.padmaawards.gov.in:8888 enables a user to understand, explore and analyse all Padma awardees between the years 1954 and 2016.

The sophisticated data visualisation engine processes complex data of all awardees till date, into a simple and intuitive format, empowering the user to understand and engage.

The government has already allowed Indians to recommend achievers for the prestigious Padma Awards as it threw open the nomination process to the general public to make it transparent.  The move also hopes to curb the crony culture of influence and lobbying. The nominations can be made online but the nominators would be required to furnish their Aadhaar details for authenticity and accountability. The government has already received more than 1700 nominations and the last date for nominating is  September 15.
