ICICI Foundation and CNBC-TV18’s Inclusive India Awards is an initiative that aims to recognize and honour NGOs and Corporate Foundations that have been working tirelessly for the mobilization of the weaker sections of the society. As a precursor to the Inclusive India Awards, ICICI Foundation and CNBC-TV18 put the spotlight on organizations and individuals at the Inside India Summit chaired by Honourable Minister of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Veerappa Moily. As a befitting culmination to this initiative, ICICI Foundation and CNBC TV18 presented the Inclusive India Awards 2012 on August 18. Honourable Minister of HRD, Mr. Kapil Sibal presided over the awards ceremony.

The Jury selected winners on the basis of this due-diligence.
