The award, which consists of Rs 2 lakh and a citation, is instituted by the Madhya Pradesh Government.
The award distribution will be a part of a three-day cultural event here, said Divisional Commissioner and Local Organising Committee Chairman Sanjay Dubey. The award is given to a singer and a music composer alternately; last year's recipient was Rajesh Roshan.
