The National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer (officially known as the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer) is an honour presented annually at the National Film Awards of India since 1968 to a female playback singer for the best renditions of songs from soundtracks within the Indian film industry. Throughout the years, accounting for ties and repeat winners, the Government of India has presented a total of 45 Best Female Playback Singer awards to 23 different female playback singers.

Until 1974, winners of the National Film Award received a commemorative plaque and certificate; since 1975, they have been awarded with a "Rajat Kamal" (silver lotus), certificate and a cash prize that amounted to INR50,000 (US$810) in 2013. Although the Indian film industry produces films in more than 20 languages and dialects,[1] the playback singers whose renditions have won awards have worked in ten major languages: Assamese, Bengali, Hindi, Konkani, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu.

The first recipient was P. Susheela from Kollywood, who was honoured at the 16th National Film Award (1968) for her renditions from the Tamil film Uyarntha Manithan. The singer who won the most number of Rajat Kamal awards is K. S. Chithra with six wins, followed by P. Susheela with five. As of 2013, two singers—S. Janaki and Shreya Ghoshal—have won the award four times, and two—Lata Mangeshkar and Vani Jairam—have won it thrice. The award has been won twice by Asha Bhosle, Alka Yagnik and Arati Ankalikar-Tikekar. S. Janaki, K. S. Chithra and Shreya Ghoshal have won the award for their renditions in three different languages. Shreya Ghoshal and Rupa Ganguly are the only winners to have received the award for two different songs in the same year, with Ghoshal being the only one in this category to be a recipient of the award for two different songs in the same year in two different languages. As of 2013, no joint award to two different artists in the same year has been given. No award was given for this category in 1973.
