Our Testimonials

“Thank you, Quality Council of India (QCI) – D. L. Shah Trust for bestowing us with this QCI-D.L.Shah Quality Award 2020 in the ‘’Gold’’ category. I am honoured to receive this award on behalf of my entire team who worked with me in the CNNS (Comprehensive National Nutrition Survey) project. On behalf of our entire CDSA-CNNS team, I express my deepest gratitude to the jury for selecting us. I thank each one of my team members in CNNS, especially my Co-Team Leader, Dr. Monika Bahl, and Laboratory Quality Program Manager, Dr. Juhee Chandra for this. I thank our CDSA, THSTI, DBT, GOI management for all their support and cooperation. CNNS was one of my life’s most memorable journeys. It was one of the toughest and challenging programs where we learned and evolved every day to continually improve. It taught us many life and quality lessons. It was meant for the greater public good, so each one of us ensured that we walked the extra mile to meet and exceed the expectations. Applying and winning this award was never thought of or even dreamt of. We just kept working and completed it satisfactorily. Today, when all of our CNNS team members gathered together to click a picture with the beautiful and inspiring trophy, miles away from the other, we connected the dots and relived the memories. This trophy motivated each of us and we promised to meet someday winning this trophy again, this time in the ‘’Individual category’’. This award made each one of us more inspired and more committed to a better tomorrow.”
