As the School was nearing the historical landmark of completing its centenary it was widely accepted that the name and honour of the school were largely due to the outstanding achievements of the Old Boys and their strong bond with the alma mater. It was felt necessary to recognise this fact by instituting a special award. Hence an award to recognise an eminent Old Boy every year was instituted and named ‘Madhav Award’after our HH Maharaja Madhavrao Scindia I. It was first given away in 1984 and the recipient was the prominent statesman Mr Natwar Singh. We proudly present the gallery of Madhav Awardees.
