Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar (SSB) Prize for Science and Technology was instituted in the year 1957, in the memory of late Dr (Sir) Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar, FRS, the founder director of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR). The SSB Prize is awarded each year on the basis of conspicuously important and outstanding contributions to human knowledge and progress, made through work done primarily in India during the five years, preceding the year of the prize.

CSIR..

Any citizen of India engaged in research in any field of science and technology up to the age of 45 years is eligible to be nominated. Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) working in India are also eligible.

The SSB Prize, comprising a citation, a cash award of 5,00,000/- (Rupees five lakh only) and a plaque, is given to each person selected for the award in the following disciplines:

• Biological Sciences
• Chemical Sciences
• Earth, Atmosphere, Ocean and Planetary Sciences
• Engineering Sciences
• Mathematical Sciences
• Medical Sciences
• Physical Sciences

Till 2011, 474 scientists have received the prestigious Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science and Technology. Majority of SSB Awardees have remained in the country and contributed immensely to Indian Science & Technology.
