National Awards 2016
National awards for excellence, proficiency and innovation in election processes and procedures are conferred on the occasion of National Voters’ Day. These awards have set new benchmarks for efficient conduct of elections in the country.
2017 was the seventh year of the National Awards being presented.
The practice was initiated by the Commission in 2011 with an aim to recognize contribution by election machinery, as also Government department/ agency/ Public Sector Undertakings/ Civil Society Organizations and media. These awards have helped develop a core resource base among officers in election management and promoted mutual learning and emulation.
While National awards are presented at the national function at Delhi, State awards are presented at the NVD functions at State Headquarters.
