The Karnataka government Wednesday announced that 65 awardees, including personalities and organisations, will be conferred with the coveted Rajyotsava Prashasti (Award), which is the second-highest civilian honour of the state.

Kannada and Culture Minister C T Ravi said, “The total number of participants for the event will be under 200 due to the Covid-19 restrictions and the event will be held in a simple manner.”

The awards are usually presented by the Chief Minister on November 1, on the occasion of the state government’s official celebration of Karnataka Rajyotsava. However, the award ceremony will take place on November 7 this year with CM B S Yediyurappa distributing the awards at Ravindra Kalakshetra in the city, Minister Ravi added.

Among the major reasons cited by top government officials for the postponement are the bypolls scheduled to be held in two assembly constituencies, RR Nagar and Sira, on November 3.

While 60 people and 5 organisations will receive the award this year in 25 different fields, only eight women have found a place in the list, including singer Girija Narayan and 2018 Asian Games Kabaddi silver medallist Usha Rani.

The award includes a 20-gram gold medal, a citation, and a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh each.
