The IMC Ladies’ Wing – Jankidevi Bajaj Puraskar recognizes, promotes, supports and honours women entrepreneurs working to improve living conditions in rural India. It seems natural that the award was named after Jankidevi Bajaj, for all her pioneering work in the area of rural development.
IMC-Ladies’ Wing, every year, felicitates and acknowledges the contribution of an Indian woman entrepreneur who has contributed in the field of rural business development. But in view of the unprecedented pandemic, the wing has decided to award the 28th IMC-Ladies’ Wing Jankidevi Bajaj Puraskar 2021 to an Indian woman who has worked towards the betterment of the people residing in rural India and 2-3 tier cities during the Covid- 19 pandemic as a COVID WARRIOR.
