The Presidential Award for Excellence is given in recognition of exceptional service in the fields of arts, literature, science, sports and nursing. Nominations are announced on August 14th each year, but the honor is awarded on March 23rd.
Along with Nishan Shujaat, Hilal Shujaat, Satara Shujaat, Tamgha Shujaat and President’s Good Performance Award, the awardees also get a reasonable amount of money.
Bravery awards in all four categories are given in recognition of bravery and life-saving service in extraordinary circumstances.
