Businesses in the south asked for nominations for the 2017 Indian Awards

Nominations are open to businesses in the south for the 2017 Indian Awards, presented by the India Business Group, which has offices in Southampton and London.

This new initiative aims to recognise outstanding UK-based individuals and organisations, which have contributed to strengthening the UK/India partnership, over the past few years.


Formerly a partner in a Hampshire law firm, Amarjit Singh, is CEO of India Business Group. He said: “This inaugural awards ceremony seeks to encourage greater understanding between our two great nations by raising awareness and shining the spotlight on those individuals and organisations who have strengthened bilateral relations.”


Under the patronage of Virendra Sharma MP, Chairman of the Indo-British All Party Parliamentary Group, The Lord Patel of Bradford OBE, Chairman of India Business Group, and with the support of Lord Rana MBE, Baron of Malone, we will be celebrating the special relationship between the UK and India.


The exclusive awards ceremony and celebratory dinner will be held on 22 June 2017 in the Houses of Parliament.  There are 6 awards categories ranging from businesses, entrepreneurs, arts & culture to special recognition.  Nominations are invited by members of the public and the deadline for entries is 10 May 2017. The winners will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced on the evening of 22 June.


Nominations can be made online at the designated awards website

The invitation only dinner will also celebrate the 70th anniversary of India’s independence and the UK / India Year of Culture 2017. 



The Lord Patel of Bradford OBE, Chairman of India Business Group said:

“This special initiative celebrates, for the first time, the efforts of outstanding organisations and individuals (based in the UK) who have worked over the years to strengthen the bond between the UK and India. This inaugural awards ceremony is a timely reminder about the mutually beneficial, evolving and special relationship between our two great nations”.
