About ELCINA – EFY Awards
ELCINA, the oldest and largest association representing the electronics manufacturing industry in India, was the first organization in India to institute Awards for Excellence in Electronics in the year 1976. These Awards recognize outstanding achievements of electronics/IT manufacturing & service companies. All electronics/IT Hardware companies with a manufacturing base in India are eligible to apply for the Awards.
These awards have stood the test of time and are highly regarded in industry circles. Since inception in 1976, the Awards have been supported by officials of the Department of Electronics & IT, Government of India by their participation in the selection process and this has enabled the elevation of these Awards to their present stature. During 2007-09, the ELCINA Awards were supported by Dun & Bradstreet, a leading source of global business information, knowledge and insight.
With effect from 2010, ELCINA has partnered with Electronics for You (EFY Group) to take the ELCINA Awards to new heights.

The objective of this alliance is to promote the Awards, enhance awareness and to make the awards ‘Greener’ by e-enabling the award process and minimizing the use of paper through-out the process.
From 2010 onwards, the ELCINA Awards are rechristened as the ELCINA-EFY Awards for Excellence in Electronics Hardware Manufacturing and Services.
