Kolkata, February 1: Adding another feather to his cap, well-known industrialist Prahlad Rai Agarwala, who leads the Rupa Group, has been selected for the Padma Awards, one of the highest civilian honours of the country.
Each year, the Padma awards are announced on the eve of Republic Day for distinguished service in art, social work, public affairs, science & engineering, trade and industry, medicine, literature & education, sports & civil service. The awards are conferred by the President of India at ceremonial functions at Rashtrapati Bhawan around March/April.

I have received several prestigious awards over the years, and each one is special, but this Padma award is the most special honour. I extend my sincere gratitude to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji for the honour,” Mr. Agarwala said, reacting to the honour.
