About  National Metallurgist Award 

National Metallurgists Day Awards, was instituted in 1962 by the then Ministry of Steel & Mines to recognise & honour the outstanding contributions of Metallurgists in the metallurgical field covering operation, research, design, education, waste management and energy conservation. The awards are given on an annual basis. The first award was given in the year 1963 and subsequently every year thereafter. Over the years, the number of categories and the award money were revised upwards.

As per the directions received from MHA regarding the rationalising of the awards in line with the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister, it is proposed to rationalise the scheme. As per the suggestions received from MHA, it is proposed to change the name of the award, change the date of the award ceremony, reduce the number of awards & make the awards more stringent to enhance the stature of the award, widen nomination pool etc.
