FAQs (frequently asked questions)

What are Jiyo Dil Se Awards?

Jiyo Dil Se Awards is an attempt to identify & recognize the indomitable spirit of common man towards the betterment of society. The initiative took shape in 2013 and is moving forward in its ninth year. In the last 8 years, 231 winners rose to fame and became role models for our society. Today, into its ninth year, the initiative brought many underrated do-gooders in limelight. All of these were earlier unknown to our societies, until the Jiyo Dil Se Awards happened to them.

Every year we aim to honour individuals who stand apart from the crowd and become a source of inspiration for the whole nation. After eight very successful seasons, the Jiyo Dil Se Awards Season IX is back.
