The awards were received by SAIL Chairman Mr. S.K.

The two awards are in recognition of SAIL’s far-reaching initiatives in the areas of Corporate Social Responsibility & Responsiveness (2008-09) and in Research & Development, Technology Development & Innovation (2007-08).

The SCOPE Meritorious Award for Corporate Social Responsibility & Responsiveness for the year 2008-09 has been conferred on SAIL for the fulfillment of stringent criteria on CSR policies, products & services, initiatives of the company to improve the quality of work life, environment, safety/security & well-being of the employees and other stakeholders.
