About 108 personalities from various fields have been selected for the Padma Awards this year.

Delhi's haul at the Padma Awards has increased considerably from last year. Of the 108 Padma awards, 21 were claimed by Delhiites and the number is 22 if you count Prof. Yashpal who now lives in Noida.

The lion's share of Padma awards this year has gone to Maharashtra, which got 25 awards.

The Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), which has often been criticized for huge time and cost overruns in critical defence projects, also struck it rich in the annual Padma awards this year.

DRDO chief Vijay Kumar Saraswat, who is also the scientific adviser to the defence minister, and the BrahMos CEO A Sivathanu Pillai have both been awarded the Padma Bhushan.

DRDO chief controller Research and Development (Missiles and Strategic Systems) Avinash Chander has been honoured with the Padma Shri.
