Dear Naresh,

You are a very learned person and I had a query about eligibility for Padma Shri Awards :

1. Can a person accused of cheating and defrauding Public Sector banks to the tune of several hundred of crores, by diverting the "borrowed public money" by fraudulent means in companies owned by him is eligible for Padma Shri Award in the same category of awards in which he is accused of committing the fraud. 2. Under reference is the 2012 Padma Shri Award in the category of "Trade and Industry" 3. Can the Padma Shri award be given during pendency of several criminal cases filed by Public Sector Banks and still going on against the accused awardee in various district level courts, [High Court] & Supreme Court. 4. Supreme Court also having rejected the appeals of the accused awardee in criminal cases filed against him by several Public Sector Banks.
