Construction Week wins CIDC Vishwakarma award
Construction Week and its Editor Niranjan Mudholkar have been awarded the CIDC Vishwakarma Award 2010 in the “Best Construction News Magazine” and “Best Journalist” categories respectively.
Niranjan received the Awards at a glittering ceremony in New Delhi on March 7, 2010 alongside two other industry magazines (who have been around for more than a decade). It is indeed a matter of pride for Construction Week to win this honour when it has hardly completed 15 months of existence.
“It would be wrong on our part if we do not acknowledge the support and encouragement of people who have helped us achieve this success in a short time. A big heartfelt THANK YOU,” said Niranjan.
He also acknowledged that this award has also brought with it great responsibility. “We will certainly live up to the expectations now people have from us. And we would need your continued support going forward.”
Construction Week received several congratulatory notes from people with whom this great news was shared. Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Kamal Nath was kind enough to write back and said: “Congratulations to you and your entire team for the well deserved CIDC Vishwakarma Award 2010.”
The CIDC Vishwakarma Awards are instituted by the Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC) which was established by the Planning Commission, Govt. of India along with the constituents of Indian Construction Industry. It is an apex organization that aims to professionalize and improve the functioning of the industry.
