“India Unbound , improving society one project at a time”. Operating firmly outside the limelight, with an attitude that tilts more towards the can-do than the could-do; IndiaUnbound Magazine, since 11 years, has been pioneering the concept of “Change”.
With their each weekly issue, India Unbound Group aims to reach out to the maximum people to spread awareness in the society and bring a change in the mindset.
Embarking on this journey India Unbound hosted “2nd Edition of India Unbound Awards”- Excellency Awards 2018 spearheaded by Nityanand Pandey.
A brilliant and unique initiative to honour the saga of selfless work by
Administrative officials, Politicians, Sports Personalities, Social Workers, Bollywood Personalities, Corporates, Journalists, Police, Municipal Corporation, MMRDA, MMRC & Traffic, Police Staff for their exemplary, services in order to encourage & support their moral & recognition in the society.
India Unbound Group deeply believes that BMC has been instrumental in spreading awareness about Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan. To take forward Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) introduced “Clean India Act” back in 2014.
Long work hours and tough working conditions coupled with soaring temperatures mean these men/women, Traffic Police of the law discharge their duties at the expense of maintaining order in their own lives. India Unbound Group calls it “A challenging and thankless job”
“India Unbound Awards”- Excellency Awards 2018 is an event that recognizes and salutes different working sections of India. It seeks to identify all those whose service is currently helping or has helped our nation. They bring forth those individuals whose supreme efficiency , work, ensures a clean, safe & corrupt free progressive nation. “India Unbound Awards”- Excellency Awards 2018 honours their dedication, their commitment, and their undying love for the republic of India.
