JNPT First AGAin!

Walks tall with Indira Gandhi Rajbhasha Puraskar once more

The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), the premier container handling
Port of the country, which is also ranked 24th amongst the Top 30
container ports in the world, has bagged the coveted 'Indira Gandhi
Rajbhasha Puraskar' (1st Prize), 2006-07, consecutively for the second

The award was received, on behalf of the Port Trust, by Mr S. Shahzad
Hussain, IAS, Chairman of JNPT, at the hands of the President of
India, Ms Pratibha Devisingh Patil, at a glittering function organised
by the Department of Official Language, Ministry of Home Affairs, at
the Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi on September 14, as part of the 'Hindi
Day' celebrations.

The Union Home Minister, Mr Shivraj Patil, presided over the function.

Last year, the Port was awarded the Indira Gandhi Rajbhasha Puraskar
(2nd Prize) for 2005-06. It has also been awarded five times by the
Union Ministry of Shipping and thrice by the Town Official Language
Implementation Committee (Undertakings), Mumbai, for its excellent
implementation of the official language.

Apart from serving the international trade and commerce of the country
by handling more than 60 per cent of containerised cargo, JNPT has
also been doing excellent work in fulfilling its Corporate Social
Responsibility (CSR), protecting and upgrading the Port's environment
and implementing the official language policy.
