The students were felicitated by Amitabh Kant, G20 Sherpa & Former CEO, Niti Aayog, as the chief guest along with Manish Sharma, Chairman, Panasonic Life Solutions India & SA and Tadashi Chiba, Managing Director, Panasonic Life Solutions India in the august presence of Prof. Sanjeev Sanghi, Head of the Applied Mechanics department at IIT Delhi, and Ritu Ghosh, Head of Corporate Affairs & CSR, Panasonic Life Solutions India.

Congratulating the winners, Amitabh Kant, G20 Sherpa & Former CEO, Niti Aayog said, “With a growing population of young people, India has the potential to become a global powerhouse of talent and innovation. The youth of India is a driving force behind the country’s economic growth, social development, and technological advancement. This demographic dividend provides India with a unique opportunity to capitalise on talent and energy to achieve its economic and social goals. However, to fully realise this potential, India must invest in education, skills development, and employment opportunities for its young population. And, over the years, Panasonic’s Ratti Chhatr scholarship programme has been truly commendable in assisting such young achievers by empowering them to attain skills and knowledge to innovate and help in nation-building. I extend my congratulations to the Panasonic team and all the students for their dedicated efforts that have led them to this moment today.”

We believe that education is the key to unlocking an individual’s potential and enabling them to contribute to the development of society. Through Ratti Chattr initiative, we aim to encourage young minds with skills and learning that will equip them for a brighter future. We are proud to support the next generation of leaders and look forward to seeing them make a positive impact in their respective fields. The scholarship programme has played a big role in the scholar’s life. From creating an impact on scholars’ academic performance to felicitating on the career paths that empowered them to pursue their career goals with greater confidence and independence. We are delighted to have scholarship recipients from the 2018 batch join us at this year’s felicitation event and share their motivating journey towards achieving their dreams and inspiring others.”
