IGS Delhi Chapter had instituted annual awards to honour dedicated and committed geotechnical engineers of Delhi. The objective is to recognize the contribution of the members of the IGS Delhi Chapter for promotion and practice of geotechnical engineering. It was long been realized that there are many geotechnical engineers doing very good professional work and contributing effectively to several major works and areas. However, some such contributions have gone unrecognized due to various reasons. These awards are proposed to correct this imbalance to the extent feasible.
