Since 1977, the Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation has been promoting Gandhiji’s constructive programs and honouring people who have aligned themselves with the Foundation’s causes. For seventeen fruitful years, Mr. Ramkrishna Bajaj was the leading light of the Foundation. After his demise, the Foundation found an able successor in Mr. Rahul Bajaj who took over as its Chairman. Rahulji, along with a competent Board of Trustees, has continued to nurture the activities of the Foundation.
The Foundation has instituted four annual awards, each carrying a cash prize of Rs. 10,00,000 (or its equivalent in foreign currency), a citation and a trophy; to encourage people to continue with their exemplary work of community development.
