RECOGNISING EXCELLENCE IN ELECTRONICS HARDWARE MANUFACTURING & SERVICES
Instituted in 1976 by ELCINA, these awards have stood the test of time and are highly regarded in industry circles. Since inception, the Awards have been supported by officials of the Department of Electronics & IT (Government of India) through their participation in the selection process and this has enabled the elevation of these Awards to their present stature.
In 2010, ELCINA and Electronics For You (EFY Group) partnered together to take these awards to greater heights. The objective of this alliance is to promote the Awards, enhance awareness and to make the awards 'Greener' by re-enabling the award process and minimizing the use of paper through-out the process. Since 2010, these Awards have been rechristened as ELCINA-EFY Awards.
LIST OF AWARDSThe ELCINA-EFY Awards are presented annually for outstanding achievements by corporates and SMEs in:
- o Special Awards For SME's for Excellence in Innovation

In addition, an Award for 'Electronics Man of the Year' was introduced in 1987 to recognise outstanding individual contributions of industry captains to the overall development of Electronics in India. Previous recipients of this Award include, among others, stalwarts like Mr. Ratan Tata, Mr. Azim Premji, Mr. N.R. Narayana Murthy, Mr. Mukesh Ambani, Mr Satish Kaura and many more respected stars of the industry.
Unlike other categories, nominations for ‘Electronics Man of the Year’ are proposed by the judging committees. Nominations for all awards are then reviewed by different committees of experts from industry and government, and winners are finalised by them.
