Advertising and Visual Publicity has been conferred the prestigious Web
Ratna 2012, ‘Golden Icon Award for Innovative use of Technology’. The
award was received by Director General of DAVP Shri A P Frank Noronha
from Hon’ble Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Shri
Kapil Sibal at a function in New Delhi.
The DAVP Website (http:/davp.nic.in/) has enabled a complete change from
the manual mode to the online mode where the media plans are made and
released for the end users. The website with several user friendly
features is the only advertising agency in the country which releases
its designs, Release orders, payments online. The site has added a great
deal of transparency to the entire system in its billing as well as
other procedures which have not only helped the organisation but also
its stakeholders. DAVP also keeps as much information as possible on the
website for public scrutiny and information.
The entire chain has contributed a great deal of efficiency to the
DAVP’s operation and vastly improved the satisfaction levels of the
client ministries as well as newspapers, channels and other agencies.
The Project was headed by Shri A. P. Frank Noronha, DG, DAVP.
The Web Ratna awards, constituted by the Ministry of Communication and
Information Technology, acknowledges exemplary initiatives/practices in
the realm of e-governance. In order to promote more innovative
e-governance initiatives, the Web Ratna Awards have been instituted
under the ambit of the National Portal of India.
