PIIA 2023 aims to acknowledge and appreciate the exceptional work of functionaries who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and dedication towards community development. Their efforts have brought about remarkable changes in the uptake and delivery of much-needed services at the village, district, state, and national levels.

This year’s event is particularly special, as we are honoured to have joined the C20 mission along with other civil society organisations and institutions. There are 8 distinct categories of nominations across various thematic areas. To acknowledge and reward the outstanding achievers, the winners will be felicitated at an award ceremony in Delhi at the end of July.
