Jagdish Khattar, Managing Director, Maruti Udyog, has been chosen as Person of the Year by Auto Monitor, India's first B2B publication, in view of his contribution to the automotive industry in 2006.

The awards, now in their third year, honour the best in automotive excellence, and were given out in eight categories including Human Resource Initiative of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year, Commercial Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year, Auto Component Manufacturer of the Year, Young Achiever of the Year and two special Awards — Car Manufacturer of the Year and Bike Manufacturer of the Year.
