The Federation of Telangana Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FTCCI) has announced its latest edition of Excellence Awards. These awards aim to recognize the achievements of entrepreneurs for their work in Telangana. The FTCCI is a 106-year-old regional chamber, which is one of India's most dynamic and respected trade organizations. It is an apex body of industry, commerce, and trade and has been promoting the spirit of entrepreneurship in the state for many years.
The awards are an annual feature of FTCCI and have been running uninterrupted since 1974. The Awardees are rewarded for excellence in their work, operations, and outstanding contributions to the state of Telangana. The FTCCI has added a new category for the Best Startup Award this year, in addition to the existing 22 categories. The committee is hopeful of receiving 150 entries this year.
The awards are judged by a jury composed of highly respected individuals from various fields. The jury is headed by Sri Mr Arun Luharuka, Chairman of the FTCCI Excellence Awards Committee. Other members of the jury include retired judges, IAS officers, and former scientists. The awards are different from those given by individuals or organizations as they are given by the apex body of trade. Hence, they are highly respected and sought after.
Winning an award from the FTCCI is highly rewarding and recognized. It boosts morale, improves quality and production, and earns good recognition for the company. Some of the areas where awards will be given include Exports, Marketing, Innovation, R&D Technology, Information Technology, Employee Welfare, Aerospace and Defence, New Renewable Energy, Tourism Promotion, Chamber/Association, Individuals – Scientist/Engineer, Woman Entrepreneur, Differently Abled Person, and Social Welfare initiatives for Women Empowerment.
The committee encourages differently-abled persons to apply under the Outstanding Self-Sustaining Effort by a Differently Abled Person Award category, which is exempt from the entry fee. However, there is a nominal entry fee for other categories. The last date for paying the nomination fee is 15th May'23, and the last date for receiving nominations is 31st May.
In conclusion, the FTCCI Excellence Awards are highly respected and recognized, promoting the spirit of entrepreneurship in Telangana.
