The foundation singled him out for his efforts planning and managing traffic, and for making regular contributions to education and awareness campaigns.

Navdeep says: “With other volunteers, I’ve implemented lane driving and created diversions to help raise awareness of traffic rules in Haryana.”

His support for underprivileged communities won him praise too. Navdeep regularly volunteers for a number of charitable organisations in rural areas of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttrakhand.

Delhi Police and the Anand Organization for Social Development also recognised his achievements, naming him Social Worker of the Year in the social development category of their joint annual awards.

Navdeep says: “It’s all possible due to the continuous support from our company’s leaders and other colleagues who always support our ideas for social uplift. This motivates me to do more for society.”

Navdeep is no newcomer to winning awards. In 2015, he was our November volunteer of the month. And he went on to clinch runner-up in the volunteer of the year category at the 2015 Chairman’s Awards.
