Susunan Keutamaan Darjah Kebesaran Negeri Kelantan

In Kelantan, the royal ceremony for awards bestowed to royals and public administrators is held at the Istana Balai Besar (palace with a big hall) in Kota Bharu. The Sultan of Kelantan gives away the awards.

In 2010 and before 2010, before Sultan Ismail Petra suffered a stroke in 2009/2010, the award ceremonies used to be held on 30-31 March. His heir Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra was Acting Sultan and continued the tradition in March 2010 (for the last time). When Tengku Faris Petra succeeded his father as Sultan Muhammad V, he changed the award ceremony date to 11-12 November in 2011. From then on the award ceremony was held on 11-12 November as in 2012.
