He has received innumerable honors for his path breaking research work, notable among them being Fellow of the Royal Society, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan from the President of India, Foreign Associate of US National Academy of Engineering, International Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering, Fellowship of The Third World Academy of Sciences and President of Indian National Science Academy.

The most distinctive feature of his research career is that, Professor Sharma has carried out his entire research, exclusively in a State University. He joined University Department of Chemical Technology (UDCT) of the then Bombay University in 1964 as a full Professor at the age of 27; and his first Ph.D. student was out within three years of his date of joining, which is a record in itself. He has proved that the essential ingredients for successful quality research are innovative ideas, strong motivation, commitment, and capacity of hard work. He always takes pride in the fact, that he was a teacher, and used to teach even the undergraduate classes till his retirement….
