He received the award at the hands of His Excellency Murlidhar C. Bhandare, Governer of Orissa on Sunday March 24, 2013 at Trimurti Bhavan in New Delhi. It is a matter of pride for him as this is the fourth time in a span of six months that he’s been awarded for his services.
Sometime earlier, he was awarded the Indra Gandhi Sadbhavna Award by honourable Governer of Chattisgarh, Shekhar Dutt in New Delhi. Seen in the picture on the right are Shabbir Noor Mohammed Patel and Mrs. Shehnaz Shabbir Patel receiving the award from the Governor of Orissa and other dignitaries.
