Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award
This is India’s highest honour in the field of sports and games. The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports gives it out once a year. The recipient(s) is/are chosen by a Ministry-appointed committee for their “spectacular and most exceptional performance in the sphere of sports during a four-year period” at the international level. For each nominated sportsman, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award now costs Rs. 25 lakh.
The presentation of Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna awards began in 1991. Vishvnathan Anand, a chess world champion, is the first Rajiv Gandhi ward winner. He received numerous sporting accolades in addition to the Rajiv Gandhi Award.
For their great achievements and contributions to their sport, all athletes from various sports are nominated for the Khel Ratna awards. For verification of claimed accomplishments and doping clearance, all nominations are sent to SAI and the National Anti-Doping Agency, respectively. The prize is not open to any athlete who has been sanctioned or is under investigation by the World Anti-Doping Agency for using banned medications or substances. A committee comprised of the Joint Secretary and Director/Deputy Secretary of the Department of Sports, the Secretary, and the Executive Director/Director (TEAMS) of SAI verifies and validates the nominees.
Valid nominations are given to the government’s selection committee. A Chairperson nominated by the Ministry, four Olympians or previous recipients of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna or Arjuna Award, three sports journalists/experts/commentators, one sportsperson/expert/administrator associated with parasports, one sports administrator, the Director-General of SAI, and the Joint Secretary of the Department of Sports make up this twelve-member committee.
In each discipline, only two athletes, one male and one female, are given the highest marks. The committee can only recommend the athlete who received the highest overall score in a particular sport discipline, not the athlete who received the highest overall score across all disciplines. The recommendations of the selection committee will be sent to the Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports for final approval.
