Articles/Reports/Stories Eligible for the Award Will Be Those Published/Aired: For both Print and Electronic Media


FICCI CASCADE has been working extensively on creating awareness on tackling smuggling which is a serious menace to public health and safety, national security and government revenues, and why all concerned must address this grave threat to the economy, and the society at large. We have received tremendous support of media in making our efforts public and sharing facts and figures, which points to the importance of the issue and reinforce our belief to highlight the menace through media for mass awareness generation and building public opinion.


With this in view, FICCI CASCADE will recognize outstanding contribution to journalism by awarding premier and active journalists who are covering various issues on smuggling and their multiple adverse effects. This award will honour journalists from both print and electronic media, whose work is of high professional standards and generates public trust in the media while provoking further debate on the issue that significantly impacts the economy and the lives of people.


Needless to say that the voice of media is a powerful tool and FICCI CASCADE will felicitate the journalists who show high standards of rigour, depth and analysis while comprehensively covering various aspects of smuggling which impact Indian business and economy.
