For S. CHAND,
years of dedication and work
has not gone unnoticed, in fact, the company has garnered many accolades and awards.
The founder of the company Late Mr. Shyam Lal Gupta received the prestigious Padma Shree award
FPBAI Life Time Achievement Award
has been given to Late Mr. Rajendra Kumar Gupta, Managing Director, S. Chand Group.
The Company was the first recipient of the Best Publisher
by the University Grants Commission.
The company was also the recipient of prestigious awards such as the Federation
of Indian Publishers Award, Booksellers Best Publisher and Dadabhai Naoroji Millennium
Award. In 2004, the company received the Knowledge Pillar
of India Honour Award organised by Vivekanand Educational,
Cultural and Games Organisation, Deoghar (Jharkhand). Certificate of Distinction
for Best Stall Display has been awarded by The Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP)
at 12th Delhi Book Fair 2006.
Though there was a steady stream of awards, we realise that awards are not an end
in itself. It is merely a culmination of the sincere efforts being put in by each
and every individual associated in this process of giving the education system a
positive upliftment in the country. To ensure that these thoughts are translated
into reality and do not remain mere words on some vision statement papers and presentations,
the company itself has instituted the S. CHAND Educational Awards for meritorious
services and achievements in the field of education. S. CHAND does not let go off
any opportunity where it can help in strengthening the existing facilities to impart
quality education. To achieve this goal, the Company had funded the establishment
of a world-class library at the American Institute of Indian Studies, Gurgaon, India.
