DIYA Kundan Kumar Brings the Big Win to India, leaving Singapore and Mauritius Behind!

October 24, 2018 saw India winning the prestigious 2018 Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management Award in Georgetown, Guyana. This coveted award celebrates the spirit of innovation in the public service by recognising organisations that have made significant contributions to improve governance and services in the public sector.
India won the CAPAM award under Innovation Incubation Category. This category picks up projects with innovation that represents early thinking and promotes unproven innovative ideas that have not yet become replicable actions. It highlights amazingly radical and promising forward thinking that can ignite further ideas for innovative practices.
DIYA Kundan’s winning initiative, Unnayan Banka – Reinventing Education using Technology, India fulfilled all and more of the positioned criteria and it exemplified the best about the public service and shows what is possible even in the face of long-standing, deep-rooted problems. The other finalist under Innovation Incubation Category were from Mauritius and Singapore, namely “Impact of Hydrographic Services in Mauritius, Hydrographic Unit, Ministry of Housing and Lands, Mauritius” and “SAFER: Sense making Analytics for Maritime Event Recognition, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.”
In India too, Excellence in Public Administration is the highest and most coveted award for Civil Servants. DIYA Kundan received this award for Unnayan Banka on April 21, 2018 from the hands of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, followed by dinner with Hon’ble President of India Shri Ram Nath Kovind. The tagline of Unnayan is “Mera mobile, Mera Vidhyalaya”. "The project has been recognised under the "Innovation" Category of Prime Minister's Excellence Award for Public Administration, 2018 and is expanding in various districts PAN India."
Unnayan Banka is a revolutionary edtech platform that uses modern technology to deliver quality education to students even in the remote areas of this eastern Bihar district. It uses mobile phones and smart TVs to deliver its services. The platform provides help to students from classes IX to XII and to those preparing for various competitive examinations, including IIT-JEE and the civil services examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission. Apart from providing basic lessons, the platform also allows the students to get their doubts cleared by experts, who have been roped in to help students through crowd sourcing.For mobile users, the Unnayan Banka project has come up with a mobile app ECKOVATION which can be downloaded from the Google Play store free of cost. Addressing the media, DIYA Kundan informed that Unnayan Banka initiative could be summarised as an initiative which is different from the traditional chalk and talk method and uses multimedia to deliver quality education to the students in the simplest possible manner.
Right now, the project is riding on enthusiasm of students and teachers of government schools in Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Orissa and UP.
Now, a few facts on DIYA Kundan!
DIYA Kundan Kumar, IAS, 2014 Batch is a multifaceted diamond coming from Yugrishi’s mine of yug-dharmis. This diamond has been honed and chiseled to understand the problems plaguing society and become a solution-oriented pranic force by Rev. Dr. Pranav Pandya, Hon’ble Chancellor, Dev Sanskriti Vishvavidyalaya – since his childhood.
The dedication of this dynamic DIYA towards Yugrishi’s cause of creating a divine world order is turning around the old and obsolete and giving rise to regeneration in terms of resources - human, natural as well as capital. These selfless efforts are not only earning him blessings and gratitude from the thousands of souls he is working for but also is regularly being accorded various awards for excellence.
Yugrishi has called on his disciples to be creators of new era, and DIYA Kundan is an effulgent example of a true Yug Nirmani Karyakarta, a model of “Yuva Utkarsh.”
