The selection of contestants for the show has been done by Indian Council of Agricultural Research. The format of the show will include two woman farmers talking about their achievements in each episode. Judges will score these contestants based on their assessment. The five contestants who get the highest scores during the show will reach the finals, where one of them will be declared the winner.

Through the show, each participant will have an opportunity to learn from the experiences of other participants. The show is also expected to act as a source of inspiration for lakhs of women across the country watching the show.

Speaking on the occasion, Prasar Bharati chairman Dr. A Surya Prakash congratulated the DD Kisan team for conceptualising and bringing to fruition ‘Mahila Kisan Awards’. He added that this programme will showcase the impact women have had on Indian agriculture and will not only entertain but also educate people.

Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar Vempati said that of late there has been a lot of discussion on social media regarding smashing patriarchy and if any smashing of patriarchy has happened, it has happened in this show through the stories of women farmers’ innovation and spirit of entrepreneurship.
