1. For the classical music categories electronic or regular tanpura is mandatory, any other basic accompaniment is not mandatory but you can feel free to have it.

5. Each applicant can submit more than one entry if he/she chooses, but maximum one entry per category is allowed.
6. Non-classical category can include any genre or combination – our team will ensure that it is sent to the right experts for evaluation.
