It is the standard procedure to invite recommendations every year from 1st April to 31st July from all State / UT. Recommendations received from them and also from other sources like Member of Parliament, District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police, as also individual bodies etc., are placed before the Bharat Gaurav Award Committee.
The Bharat Gaurav Award Committee is constituted by the Bharat Gaurav Award Foundation every year. The members of the Committee are all eminent personalities of impeccable character and integrity. Bharat Gaurav Award Committee decides the awardees based upon the application and by also conducting its own external vetting, research and recommendations.

Persons selected for the awards are subjected to verification by the researching group of Bharat Gaurav Award Foundation with a view to ensuring that their character and antecedents are above board. The Bharat Gaurav Awards are conferred on the recommendations made by the Bharat Gaurav Award Committee, which are submitted to the Chairman for approval.
