CII and the EXIM Bank of India joined together in 1994, for promoting excellence among Indian Industry through the CII-EXIM Bank Award for Business Excellence. The Award is based on the internationally recognized EFQM Model. The Award was established to promote the awareness of excellence as an increasingly important element in competiveness. While ‘competiveness’ is a comparative concept of the ability and performance of a firm, industry sector or country to sell and supply goods/services in a given market, ‘excellence’ refers to the outstanding practices in managing the Organization and achieving results based on fundamental concepts. Organizations are measured by their ability to achieve and sustain outstanding results for their stakeholders.

Over the past 25 years, organizations from both private and public sector, large and small have institutionalized the business excellence concepts for a sustainable growth.
