The Awardees of PMRBP 2022 as well as the awardees of last year (2021) along with their parents and concerned District Magistrate of their respective district joined the event from their district headquarters. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi interacted virtually with the winners. Union Women and Child Development Minister Smt Smriti Zubin Irani  and Dr. Munjpara Mahendrabhai, Minister of State were among those present on the occasion.

Although every child is precious and his or her achievements have to be appreciated, there are some whose achievements will serve as an inspiration to many others. Towards this end, the Pradhan Mantri Bal Shakti Puraskar is given by the Government of India every year to recognize exceptional achievements in different fields. Also, to recognize the contribution of dedicated individuals and institutions, whose tireless efforts complement the actions taken by the Government of India for the welfare of children, the Bal Kalyan Puraskar was instituted and is given in two categories - Individual and Institution.

Any child with an exceptional achievement in the fields of innovation, scholastic achievements, social service, arts & culture, sports and bravery can apply for the award. Also, any person who knows about a meritorious achievement by a child can recommend this child for the award. A high-level committee selects the winners after careful consideration of each application. Applications can be filled through the dedicated web portal of the Ministry of Women and Child Development (nca-wcd.nic.in). The portal is now receiving applications for Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar 2023.
