Bharat Ratna Award to Late Major Dhyan ChandINVC,
Delhi,
Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian Award of the country. It is awarded in recognition of exceptional service/performance of the highest order in any field of human endeavour. The recommendations for the Bharat Ratna are made by the Prime Minister to the President of India. No formal recommendations for this are necessary. There is no proposal to make any change in this regard.

The then Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs & Sports and Minister of State for Defence made a suggestion on 16.07.2013 for Bharat Ratna Award to Late Major Dhyan Chand which had been noted by the then Prime Minister also. There is no such proposal from the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports recommending the name of Late Major Dhyan Chand for conferring of Bharat Ratna Award in 2013-14.

Shri Kiren Rijiju MoS (Home) gave this information in Rajya Sabha in a written reply to a question by Shri Vivek Gupta.
