The National Film Awards are considered as one of the oldest and prominent film fare ceremonies in India. The awards were established in 1954 and from 1973 the Indian government’s Directorate of Film Festivals administrates the ceremonies. All the National Awards ceremonies are generally held in New Delhi and the awards are handed out by the President of India to the winners for the year. The ‘Best Educational/Motivational/Instructional Film’ award is one of the sub-categories of Non-Feature Film Awards and was introduced in the year 1974. The inaugural award was bagged by Vijaya Mulay for the movie ‘Ek Anek Aur Ekta’. The film was released in 1974 by Films Division of India.
