Awards For Excellence

The Federation of Gujarat Industries was founded in the year 1918, in the erstwhile Baroda State, under the progressive rule of Shrimant Sayajirao Gaekwad, who encouraged social reforms and industrial development to modernize Baroda. FGI as such has a tradition of Industrial Development and its archives are full of events associated with vast industrial growth in and around Vadodara on the golden corridor of Gujarat.

During its Platinum Jubilee Year 1993, the Federation instituted biennial Awards in various fields of excellence. The objective behind institution of the awards is to recognize excellence in economic, social and scientific areas. The Federation believes that through these awards, industrial and social achievements in Gujarat will be publicly recognized and encourage others to contribute in the country's efforts of globalization and economic development.

The 12th awards function held on 10th September 2012 was graced by Shri Narendra Modi, Hon'ble Chief Minister, Govt. of Gujarat. The FGI Awards over the years have achieved unprecedented popularity and have become a brand and a status symbol amongst the business and industrial community and people of Gujarat.

This year in order to encompass a larger canvass of business houses an award for "Outstanding Workplace" has been added to the existing categories of awards.
