As a novelty to jumpstart the steel sector, the Union Steel Ministry will henceforth recommend persons for Padma awards for works of distinction and exceptional achievement in the field, just like other ministries do regarding nominations of person related to their domain. Union Steel Minister Birender Singh, presiding over the Secondary Steel Sector Awards (2016-17) on Thursday, also announced that the ministry will institute a special award for superlative achievements in the field of steel. This will be on the pattern and moral equivalence of “Khel Ratna” of Sports Ministry.

He said “The awards acknowledging the achievements and contributions made by persons for growth of steel sector, and the country will help give further impetus to it. Steel is a vital cog of fast-paced infrastructure growth in the country. The ministry will take initiatives for rapid expansion of the sector.”

There is a proposal to christen the name of the special award as “Ispat Agardoot”.
