|Ribbon of the Royal Vishwamitran Chain|
The Royal Vishwamitran Chain is a decoration instituted on 13 March 2021 by Rashtradhyaksh Dhrubajyoti Roy as a personal award of the monarch (i.e. not an award made on the advice of any government). It ranks above the Order of the Vishwamitra, with which it is often associated but not officially related. The decoration is not a part of the federal orders of Vishwamitra but is conferred as a personal award of the monarch for outstanding contributions and highest level of services to Vishwamitra, the government and its people. Originally reserved for members of the Royal Family, the chain is a distinct award conferred only upon the highest dignitaries, including foreign monarchs, heads of state, and high-ranking individuals.
The Royal Vishwamitran Chain was created by Dhrubajyoti Roy on 13 March 2021 and is based on the Royal Victorian Chain. The Royal Vishwamitran Chain ranks above all decorations of the Order of the Vishwamitra, but it is not officially part of the order. Dhrubajyoti Roy created it to honour "as a personal decoration for Sovereigns, Princes, and other Royal personages, and also for a few eminent subjects." It was first conferred on Tanishkaa Patranabish, the day the award was formed for her highest contributions towards Vishwamitra and to two other individuals for their highest contributions.
Eligibility and allocation
The Royal Vishwamitran Chain does not confer upon its recipients any style or title, nor does it give a precedence within the federal honours system. However, it represents a personal token of high distinction and esteem from the monarch. The chain can be conferred upon men and women, both nationals and foreigners. The total membership in the order shall not extend by ten living recipients at a time.
