IndiaPrime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Administration 2023 Scheme and Web-Portal launched

Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances launched the Scheme and Web-portal (http://www.pmawards.gov.in) for the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Administration 2023 on January 8, 2024, at 11:00 AM.

The scheme aims to foster constructive competition, innovation, replication, and institutionalization of best practices, with a renewed focus on good governance, qualitative achievements, and last mile connectivity.

This year, the Award Scheme is restructured to highlight the performance of District Collectors, emphasizing individual beneficiaries and implementation with a saturation approach. The evaluation for the Awards will be based on three parameters: Good Governance, Qualitative, and Quantitative achievements.

All districts are being encouraged to participate in the Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Public Administration 2023. The scheme recognizes the contribution of civil servants under two categories:

Category 1: Holistic Development of Districts under 12 priority sector programs
– 10 awards will be conferred under this category.

Category 2: Innovations for Central Ministries/Departments States, Districts
– 6 awards will be conferred under this category.

The evaluation process involves short-listing by a Screening Committee, evaluation by an Expert Committee, and final approval by an Empowered Committee, with the Prime Minister’s approval sought for the award recommendations.

The Prime Minister’s Awards 2023 will include a trophy, scroll, and a significant incentive of Rs. 20 lakh for the awarded District/Organization. This amount is intended for the implementation of projects/programs or bridging resource gaps in any area of public welfare.
