Kolkata, Feb 29 (UNI) Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has organised Social Impact Awards where Dr Sashi Panja, State Minister, Department of Women and Child Development and Social Welfare, Government of West Bengal handed over the awards to the corporates in various categories.
Speaking from the award ceremony, Dr Panja lauded ICC for organising such event.

Dr Panja also wanted every detail of the projects submitted for the awards so that they can be implemented in the development of West Bengal.
"You may be looking for macro things, I look for micro things for the cumulative impact and development", concluded Dr Panja.
