The nominations received for various categories of awards were considered by the select panels of eminent sportspersons and sports administrators of impeccable integrity. The Selection Committee for Rajiv Gandhi Khel RatnaAward and Arjuna Awards was headed by Shri Michael Ferreira and other members of the Committee from the sports fraternity were Shri Limba Ram, Shri V. Devarajan, Shri Zafar Iqbal, Ms. Vandana Rao, Ms. Anjali M. Bhagwat, Ms. Indu Puri,Shri Shakti Singh, Shri Ravi Shastri, Shri Kripa Shankar Patel and Shri Surinder Khanna..Similarly, the Committees for other awards too comprised of men and women of eminence in the field of sports. The different Committees made their recommendations after duly considering all the nominations.
National Sports Awards are given every year to recognize and reward excellence in sports. This not being an Olympic year, the Government has decided not to increase the number of awards so that the stature of the awards is maintained. While doing so, the Government is conscious that there were other individuals of outstanding sporting achievements who have a claim on these awards.
The Government has looked into the various news reports and grievances of different sportspersons.  It has also consulted the Chairpersons of the Committees.  A separate enquiry has also been conducted by Secretary, Sports.  After due consideration, the Government has decided to accept the recommendations of the Committees.  The Government wishes them all the best and hopes that they too will be part of the pantheon of winners in the coming years.
Apart from a medal and a citation, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Awardee will receive a cash prize of Rs.7.5 lakh Arjuna,Dronacharya and Dhyan Chand Awardees will receive statuettes, citations and cash prize of Rs.5 lakh each.  Recipients ofRashtriya Khel Protsahan Puruskar will be given Trophies.
