The second place went to Karnataka for its tableau based on ‘cradle of traditional handicrafts’ while the third position went to Meghalaya, the defence ministry said.

The tableau of the northeastern state was based on Meghalaya’s 50 years of statehood and its tribute to women-led cooperative societies and self-help groups.

The tableaux of the ministry of education and the ministry of civil aviation have been declared as joint winners in the category of central ministries and departments.

The theme of the tableau of the ministry of education and the ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship was ‘National Education Policy’.
