Yesterday Mohandas pai (one of the board member of Infosys) said it has decided to give Rs 5-million (Rs 50 lakh) cash award to each of the top five Indian scientists and also Rs 20million for each of five scientists who are residing in other countries in recognition of their research and achievements. This will be given yearly under the aegis of Infosys foundation (Infosys trust).
This award will be given under the category of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and statistics; Engineering Sciences in all branches of engineering, Biology, Medicine and economics to honor the scientists who will make difference to India in future said Narayan murthy. He also reported that, these top 5 scientists will be selected/recognized by five eminent experts who are from the same field.
I think this is one of the good moves to recognize the talents; we need more of these types..!
Infosys rocks again ;).
