Dainik Bhaskar hosts India Pride Awards 2013-14

The 5th edition of India Pride Award was held on December 19, 2013 in New Delhi. The India Pride Awards was instituted by the Dainik Bhaskar Group in 2009 to acknowledge excellence in Public Sector Unit enterprises (PSUs). The award was judged by meticulous evaluation by jury supported by analysis by ICRA as Knowledge Partners.

Several dignitaries graced the event, including Dr M Mangapati Pallam Raju, Union Minister, Human Resource Development, who was the Chief Guest. Dr Harak Singh Rawat, Cabinet Minister of Agriculture, Medical Education & Soldier Welfare, Government of Uttarakhand was the Guest of Honour. Dr Charan Das Mahant, Minister of State of Agriculture and Rajeev Shukla, Minister of State Planning and Parliamentary Affairs were special guests at the event.

In his address Dr M Mangapati Pallam Raju emphasised, “PSUs play a vital role in the making of the nation. Where everything in the nation is affected by what happens in another part of the world, PSUs have been playing a stabilising role.”

Ramesh Chandra Agarwal, Chairman, Dainik Bhaskar Group in his address said, “Ours is a large nation – whatever is happening, whatever changes are happening – are more apparent in the Tier II and TierIII towns. PSU have an important role to play in the stability of these markets as they are the prime employment provider in these markets. These towns and changes therein define the country.”

The highlight of the award night was the felicitation of KR Kamath, CMD, Punjab National Bank with the Lifetime Achievement Award. In his speech, Kamath shared, “Generally, PSUs are always highlighted for not accomplishing their task, and apparently a PSU office is perceived to perform only when he enters a private sector. However, this is not true. There is an entire team of PSU workers who are working extremely hard towards the nation. Recognitions such as the India Pride Award bring out the commendable efforts of PSUs and also go a long way in motivating every member to keep up their efforts relentlessly every year.”
