The Most Exalted Royal Family Order of Vishwamitra (Hindi: विश्वामित्र राज परिवार मानपदवी, IAST: Vishvaamitra Raaj Parivaar Manapadvi) is the highest and most senior order of chivalry of the State of Vishwamitra which was constituted on 3 July 2020 by a decree issued by then Rashtradhyaksh Tanishkaa Patranabish. The criteria of conferment of the decoration was changed on 30 November 2020 by the current Rashtradhyaksh Dhrubajyoti Roy issuing a royal decree[1] which allowed the decoration to be conferred to be conferred upon foreign royalties in addition to state royalties.

Being the highest national order, it is restricted to the Rajpramukhs of the states and senior royalties and foreign reigning monarchs. With a former membership limit of 15 (which was later removed), the order can be conferred upon not more than five individuals per year and can only be conferred on special days of national importance including the Rashtradhyaksh's Birthday, National Day, Monarchy Day, and Constitution Day.

History

The award was restricted to only state royalties at time of its inception in July 2020, however the criteria was changed by the Royal Decree no. 13 issued on 30 November 2020, under His Majesty's order. Following the changes to the order, it is open to be conferred upon foreign monarchs as well, in addition to the state royalties. Certain amendments were initiated to the order through Royal Decree no. 223/2020 on 5 December 2020.

Composition, grades, and insignia

Composition

At the time of the constitution of the Royal Family Order of Vishwamitra, the membership was strictly restricted to those Rajpramukhs who became the Rashtradhyaksh of Vishwamitra. The first recipient was Tanishkaa Patranabish, who is also the founder of the order. The current Rashtradhyaksh, Dhrubajyoti Roy received the order on 1 August 2020 following his election to the office and assumption of the throne of Vishwamitra. On 30 November 2020, the existing membership criteria was amended through a royal decree under which, the order became conferrable on state royalties and foreign monarchs with a membership limit of 15 recipients at a time.

The composition of the Royal Family Order of Vishwamitra is strictly restricted to senior members of the royal families of Vishwamitra who are inducted into the order as Royal Knights or Ladies, whereas foreign monarchs are inducted as Stranger Knights and Ladies. The total membership limits were removed on 5 December 2021 through a royal decree. However, not more than five inductions per year can be made to the order.

Grades

The Royal Family Order of Vishwamitra was constituted as a single grade order with members being inducted in the grade of Grand Cordon. Through the royal decree issued on 30 November 2020, the existing grade of Grand Cordon was amended to that of a Knight (for males) and Lady (for females). A special collar was designed which appears of the national coat of arms and is worn by the Rashtradhyaksh of Vishwamitra. The following is the membership criteria:

  • Royal Knight/Lady (restricted only to the Rajpramukhs and senior state royalties)
  • Stranger Knight/Lady (conferred only upon foreign monarchs)

The Collar of the Royal Family Order of Vishwamitra is only conferred on the Rashtradhyaksh of Vishwamitra who is also the Sovereign of the order, while the Deputy Rashtradhyaksh serves as the Grand Mistress of the order. All Knights of the order (both royal and stranger) bear the post-nominal letters of KV, while all Ladies (both royal and stranger) letter the post-nominal letters of LV.
