The awards, titled ‘Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Smruti Pratishthan Awards’, are held annually on the occasion of Master Deenanaths's death anniversary.

The Mangeshkar family has been honouring Master Deenanath Mangeshkar’s death anniversary for the past 75 years, and it became public in 1988 with the awards ceremonies, reported The Indian Express.

In 2018, Asha Bhosle had been conferred the award for life achievements, while Anupam Kher received a Special Award in light of his contributions to cinema and theatre. Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan was also conferred an award.
