Singer Hariharan would be receiving 'Lata Mangeshkar Samman Alankaran' at a function in Indore on May 20.
The award, which consists of Rs. 2 lakh and a citation, is instituted by the Madhya Pradesh government.
The award distribution will be a part of a three-day cultural event in Indore, said divisional commissioner and local organising committee chairman Sanjay Dubey.
The award is given to a singer and a music composer alternately; last year's recipient was Rajesh Roshan.
