This year, there were 185 nominations spread across 11 categories, 600 delegates and over 200 participants.

Ramesh A. Vaswani, Executive Vice Chairman, Intex Technologies, said, "Intex is truly honored to have won this award. National Skills Development Corporation brought the demand for such a product to us in April 2010. We believed from the very beginning that the product has a great utility for the masses. It has found encouraging acceptance with various NGOs working in the field of rural education and empowerment. This award will surely act as a morale booster for our team who look at such platforms as acknowledgment for collaborative work in the technology domain. Intex's Centre for Design & Development has also applied for a patent for the integrated projector technology."
