Founded nearly two decades ago, the institute has held several important conferences, seminars and workshops on subjects of vital national importance, which provided a forum at national level for free, frank and objective discussions. It has been publishing papers and other relevant literature and placing its resources at the disposal of those who need them for research and other promotional pursuits. The institute strives to strengthen human values, norms of democracy and the spirit of unity.
The Shiromani Vikas Awards were instituted to honour individuals for their outstanding achievements in their area of expertise; contribution to socio-economic development and nation building. The awards are given to those persons of excellence who are deemed worthy of honour.
Whereas the senior contributors are venerated and honoured with awards for the contributions already made, the younger generation are awarded to encourage them in their continued efforts of national unity, progress and human welfare.
Two of these seminars were held in Kolkata, the chief guest being Governor Shri Narul Hussain. Mumbai too saw two of these seminars with Shri C. Subramaniam, the Governor of Maharashtra as the chief guest. Seminars in Chennai were presided over, one by the Chief Minister, Shri K.Karunanidhi and the second by Governor Shri S.S.Barnala. Bangalore seminars were presided over by the Governor Shri Khurshid Alam Khan and the seminar held in Panjim, Goa, had Governor Shri Bhanu Pratap Singh as the chief guest and was presided over by the Chief Minister Dr. William D'Souza.

The Institute promotes the ideal of national unity, religious tolerance and communal harmony. So, while selecting the Awardees, their contribution towards promoting this ideal in different ways is given due consideration. Through these Awards the Institute tries to project secularism at its best as to revitalize unwavering faith in national unity and human brotherhood.
The Institute stands for Indian Renewal in all spheres. India is like a garden of variety. It has no barren desert of uniformity. We, therefore, place our firm faith in the ideal of unity in diversity and are committed to the national cause through promotion of regional cultures and their interaction and mutual support.
The Institute came into being three decades ago and soon created a strong public opinion in favour of its proclaimed aims and objectives. Over the years it has held several important conferences, seminars and workshops on subjects of vital national importance, which provided forum at national level for free, frank and objective discussions. It has been bringing out suitable literature and placing its resources at the disposal of those who need them for research and other promotional pursuits, at the same time striving to strengthen human values, norms of democracy and spirit of unity.
The BHARAT SHIROMANI AWARDS are given irrespective of caste, religion or language to those persons of excellence who prove worthy of the honour. This also helps to highlight the accomplishments in the national mainstream. Another salient feature of these Awards is that both men and women, young and old, are eligible to receive them. The old are honoured to inspire the young and the young are honoured to encourage them in their continued endeavour for national unity, progress and welfare, and prove a model for their contemporaries.
