Dainik Bhaskar organised the second India Pride Awards 2010 on September 13 in New Delhi. The awards, instituted by Dainik Bhaskar and supported by DNA, commemorate public sector undertakings for excellence in their various spheres.

The Jury for the Awards included prominent names like Dr Narendra Jadhav, Sarthak Behuria, Sanjay Pugalia, Yatish Rajawat, Dr UD Choubey, Sanjeev Kotnala, L Shivkumar, KU Rao, and Madan Bahl.

Speaking on the occasion, Pranab Mukherjee said, “I compliment the Dainik Bhaskar group for instituting these Awards last year for awarding PSUs. PSUs have played a vital role in shaping our economy and nation building for past several decades.” Thereafter, Mukherjee spoke about the history of PSUs in pre- and post-liberalisation era and pointed out their importance in building up the Indian economy over the years. Mukherjee also unveiled the Dainik Bhaskar supplement, called ‘India Pride Awards, Curtain Raiser’.

Dainik Bhaskar also launched a coffee table book, called ‘Ardhashatak’, as a tribute to the Indian public sector. After last year’s success, Dainik Bhaskar decided to include State PSUs for the 2010 Awards. Ramesh Chandra Aggarwal, Chairman, Dainik Bhaskar Group, spoke on the importance of these Awards for the PSUs and said, “PSUs have been instrumental in India’s growth and hence, it is essential that they are awarded.”
