He said, “The Metro Community Stars Awards 2014 will be a platform for us to champion the cause of independent businesses, and salute their entrepreneurial acumen and spirit. This is our way of deepening the relationships of trust and reliability that we have built within the business community, and contributing to their prosperity.”
The top three applications would be selected by a prominent jury and win prizes amounting to Rs 1,00,000; Rs 50,000; and Rs 25,000 respectively, in July 2014.
