To celebrate 75 years of independence and commemorate it as ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’, the Department of Information and Public Relations (DIPR) had launched the National Anthem Singing Competition -2022 for which entries were made open online between 1st August to 7th August, 2022.

Under this competition, the government had called upon the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir to take part in the national anthem singing competition by submitting their entries through a google link.

The entries were made open under individual and group categories. Under the individual category, people in two subcategories, 13-18 years and above 18 years of age were allowed to take part in the competition where as no age bar was kept for the group category

Speaking on this initiative, Director Information and Public Relations, Akshay Labroo said “Under this competition around 9,000 entries having around 50, 000 participants were received from different parts of Jammu and Kashmir which is four times more than the entries received last year and almost equal submissions were received from both Jammu and Kashmir divisions”. He added that especially the districts of South Kashmir are leading and have given overwhelming response in the number of submission.

The entries received will be sent to respective Deputy Commissioners of participants who will choose best three from each categories. The winners from each district will sing the National Anthem at their respective district headquarters on Independence Day.

The list if district level winners shall be forwarded to the Divisional Commissioners who shall then finalise the winners.

The winners of the competition will get cash awards of Rs 25,000, Rs 11,000 and Rs 5,000 for first, second and third prizes respectively besides getting an opportunity to perform National Anthem at the Divisional level Independence Day celebrations.

Looking at the number of requests received for extending the deadline, the DIPR is thinking of opening another round of competition under ‘Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav’.
