BHOPAL: City girl Arushi bagged International Solar Alliance (ISA) Diwakar Solar Award 2020 in a virtual award ceremony organised on Friday. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also present in the ceremony.
As part of its efforts to recognise exemplary efforts by organisations in India, the ISA is instituting the Diwakar Solar Award (Divyang Akshay-urja Puraskar).
The ISA- Diwakar Solar Award has been institutionalized with the gracious support of Piyush Goyal, Minister of Railways and Commerce and Industry Government of India.
This award was established for organisations run for children with special needs, that have adopted solar energy applications or run on power derived from solar energy to encourage the value of an inclusive society. This award is presented to two organizations in the country out of which one is Arushi.
The Awards Screening Committee found Arushi’s contribution to the Solar Energy Sector very impactful and creditworthy.
