The primary objective of the ICICI Bank & CNBC-TV18 'Emerging India Awards' is to support and motivate Indian SMEs by highlighting their outstanding performance. The awards, in the past, have helped accelerate the progress of greater and easier flow of credit from the banking sector to SMEs. Often referred to as the backbone of the economy, SMEs have the potential to drive substantial employment growth and wealth creation. According to a recent ASSSOCHAM report, SMEs are expected to contribute 22 per cent to India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2012, up from about 17 per cent at present. The sector is witnessing reforms in terms of liberalisation and deregulation which would also contribute to SME growth story in India. 'Emerging India Awards' pioneered by ICICI Bank, India's second largest bank and CNBC-TV18, undisputed leader in business and supported by CRISIL, a Standard and Poor’s company , provides a platform that enhances the visibility of these integral players in India’s economic growth story.
