In this article, we compiled the list of Padma Awardees conferred in 2016. In total, 10 were awarded Padma Vibhushan, 19 were awarded Padma Bhushan and 83 were awarded Padma Shri totaling 112. Based on previous paper trends, it was observed that questions primarily came from Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan awards categories. So, I complied the detailed analysis related to the above two categories whereas effort is being made to provide the broad details of Padma Shree. Remembering the list of awardees is a herculean task, so I recommend “smart reading” to filter and focus on key trends and any outliers.
Here is a list of Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan awardees:
