What made a difference to the nominations process this year is that submission of nominations were geo-locked to the UK territory only. Top programmes such as ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’, ‘Naamkarann’ and ‘Meri Durga’ did not make the list year, despite a huge following in UK ratings. is the official partner up for the event for the fourth consecutive event.
