The jury evaluated entries on the basis of several parameters, which include impact on people, environment and sustainability, innovation, ethical conduct, social consciousness, activities beyond the call of duty and corporate social responsibility. Organizations were evaluated based on how much the above categories are an integral part of their corporate mission.

"At Mindtree, we hold ourselves accountable to the community that we live in and believe in making a difference through giving. This recognition inspires us to continue these efforts and help make the world a better place."

  in a spirit of fostering healthy competition. Samruddhi Abhiyan 
  aimed to create a positive impact for the thousands of school-going
  children in the Kanakapura Taluk of Karnataka. Over six months, the
  program involved 161 schools, 14,700 children and 36 villages from 
  the entire Kanakapura Taluk on cleanliness, sports, cultural 
  activities and improving overall education standards. With 25 model
  schools announced as winners of this competition, this is now being
  replicated across the state by the government of Karnataka.

  children with Special Needs (VIKAS), uses 10 curated exercises 
  across 34 screens to improve the visual-cerebral abilities of 
  children with Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI), conceptualized by 
  Aravind Eye Hospotals and developed by Mindtree.
