 Press Release

Twelve Lok Sabha MPs and three Parliamentary Standing Committees nominated for the  ‘Sansad Ratna Awards’ based on their performance in the 17th Lok Sabha

New Delhi, January 7, 2024:  The prestigious Sansad Ratna and Sansad Maha Ratna Awards have been announced for the 17th Lok Sabha, to honour twelve distinguished Parliamentarians and three Standing Committees of Parliament in recognition of their exemplary performances.

‘Sansad Ratna Awards’ presented annually and ‘Sansad Maha Ratna Award,’ presented once in five years by the Chennai-based NGO Prime Point Foundation and the eMagazine PreSense, acknowledge outstanding performances of MPs in the Parliament. Prime Point Srinivasan, the Founder and Chairman of Prime Point Foundation, said these awards are based on comprehensive performance, with nominees selected by a distinguished Jury Committee chaired by Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, and T. S. Krishnamurthy, Former Chief Election Commissioner of India. The performance data is sourced from the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha websites and the PRS Legislative Research. This is the only Award presented by civil society to honour the top-performing Parliamentarians in India.

The  Sansad Ratna Awards Committee, led by Priyadharshni Rahul, Trustee Secretary of Prime Point Foundation and the Chairman of Sansad Ratna Awards Committee, announced the recipients for the Sansad Maha Ratna Awards for the entire 17th Lok Sabha. These include NK Premachandran (RSP, Kerala), Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury (Indian National Congress, West Bengal), Bidyut Baran Mahato (BJP, Jharkhand), and Dr. Heena Vijayakumar Gavit (BJP, Maharashtra).

“Recognising the continued consistent top performance of Supriya Sule (NCP, Maharashtra), Shrirang Appa Barne (Shiv Sena, Maharashtra), and Bhartruhari Mahtab (BJD, Odisha), the Sansad Maha Ratna Awardees of the previous 16th Lok Sabha, the Jury  Committee has decided to honour them for their 'Exemplary Performance' in the 17th Lok Sabha as well”. These three Members would be honoured with “Sansad Utkrisht Mana Ratna” Award”,  said Priyadharshni Rahul.

She further added that five Lok Sabha Members, Sudhir Gupta (BjP, Madhya Pradesh),  Dr Shrikanth Eknath Shinde (Shiv Sena, Maharashtra), including first time MPs Dr Sukanta Majumdar (BJP, West Bengal), Kuldeep Rai Sharma (Congress, Andaman and Nicobar Islands) and Dr Amol Ramsingh Kolhe (NCP, Maharashtra will receive the  “Sansad Ratna” Awards.  Kuldeep Rai Sharma, Dr Amol Ramsingh Kolhe and Sudhir Gupta are receiving the Award for the third time for their performance in the 17th Lok Sabha”.

 “All the above MPs are nominated by the Jury Committee for the Awards transparently, based on their outstanding performance in Initiated debates, Private Members Bills and Questions since the inception of the 17th Lok Sabha”, added Priyadharshni Rahul.

Sansad Maha Ratna Awards were not previously conferred upon Parliamentary committees.  Considering the importance of these Committees,  starting from the current 17th Lok Sabha, three Standing Committees have been included in the Sansad Maha Ratna Awards. The Agriculture Committee chaired by P C Gaddi Gowdar (BJP, Karnataka), the Finance Committee chaired by Jayant Sinha (BJP, Jharkhand), and the Transport and Tourism  Committee presently chaired by Vijayasai Reddy (YSR Congress, Andhra Pradesh) and formerly chaired by T G Venkatesh (BJP, Andhra Pradesh)  have been nominated for their consistent contributions based on sittings and the reports presented by them, relying on the data commensurate with the term of 17th Lok Sabha.

The prestigious awards are scheduled to be presented at a grand ceremony on February 17, 2024, in Delhi, marking the 14th edition of the event. Prime Point Foundation instituted these honours at the instance of Dr. Abdul Kalam, former President of India, who himself inaugurated the first award event in 2010 in Chennai. 

Sansad Ratna Awards are presented annually to the top performing Parliamentarians based on their performance, while Sansad Maha Ratna awards are presented once in five years for the consistency of performance during the term of the Lok Sabha. Till March 2023, 106 Sansad Ratna Awards have been presented through 13 award ceremonies making it the only award presented by any civil society at a global level to the best-performing Parliamentarians.
