Sunil Bharti Mittal becomes the first Indian citizen to be conferred an honorary Knighthood by Britain’s King

Sunil Bharti Mittal, the founder and chairman of Bharti Enterprises, has been conferred an honorary Knighthood by Britain’s King Charles III for his services to UK and India business relations. This prestigious recognition makes him the first Indian citizen to receive the Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE) under King Charles III.

In a list of honorary British awards, Mittal has been awarded the KBE, which is one of the highest honors conferred by a British monarch. The KBE is granted in an honorary capacity to foreign nationals who have made pre-eminent contributions in various fields of activity. While UK nationals receiving the Knighthood are titled Sir or Dame, non-UK nationals like Mittal add KBE (or DBE for women) after their names.
