New Delhi: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar's name has been recommended for Bharat Ratna by the Prime Minister's Office, sources have told CNN-IBN.

However, sources also add that there is some reservation on conferring Bharat Ratna on Tendulkar as he is considered too young for the highest civilian award of the country.

Those opposing his name also say that as the maestro received Padma Vibhushan just two years back and it may be too early for a Bharat Ratna
