Literary Award

To give recognition to outstanding literary works, the Board instituted an annual literary award in 1974 called ‘Publication Board Award.’ However, the award was not offered for a long time. This award has now been revived as ‘The Publication Board Literary Life Time Achievement Award’. The award with the new name resumed from the year 2012.

The recipients of ‘The Publication Board Literary Life Time Achievement Award’ for the last three years are reputed poet and art-critic Nilamani Phukan (2014) noted litterateur Dr Nabin Chandra Sarma (2015) and noted Science-writer Dr Dinesh Chandra Goswami (2016).
