ELCINA-EFY Awards 2016 spur excellence and growth in electronics
The ELCINA-EFY Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of companies in the electronics/IT manufacturing and services space. All electronics/ IT hardware companies with a manufacturing base in India are eligible to apply for the awards.
These awards have stood the test of time and are highly regarded in industry circles. Since their inception in 1976, the awards have been supported by officials of the Department of Electronics & IT, Government of India, who participate in the selection process and this has elevated these awards to their present stature.
At the organisational level, the awards are presented annually for outstanding achievements in the following areas:
• Research and development
• Environment management
• Business excellence (instituted in 2006)
• Entrepreneurial excellence
• Special awards for SMEs for ‘Excellence in innovation’
In addition, an award was introduced for ‘Electronics Man of the Year’ in 1987 to recognise the outstanding individual contributions of the captains of industry to the overall development of electronics in India. Previous recipients of this award include, among others, stalwarts like Ratan Tata, Azim Premji, N.R. Narayana Murthy, Mukesh Ambani, Satish Kaura and many more respected stars of the industry. This year, a few special Jury Awards were introduced to recognise the outstanding contribution of individuals in certain specific fields.
The panel of judges for these awards comprised experts from the industry, government and institutions supporting the electronics industry.
