    Thanks for updating such a list. May be you didn’t notice, ‘there are not 73 Padam Shree Awards but in your list its 74’. Update the correction plz.

    • GK Today

      Actually Awards are given in duo.. to list extends beyond actual figure 73..
      For ex: entry 1 and 2 is actually only 1…Abhay Bang and Rani Bang from Maharashtrawere awarded Padma Shri in Duo for Medicine.

    • GK Today

      Actually in some cases awards are given in Duo which is single entry on..

      Entry 1 and 2 i.e. award to Mr and Mrs. Bang duo is only Entry 1.. So list extends beyond 73
