The 39 year old is the recipient of the Meghdoot award 2021, the highest honour in the country for an employee in the Postal Department, which recognises excellence.

Dhananjaya, a native of Chendage village in Tumakuru, is the only one from Karnataka to bag the award and one of eight in the country. Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Communications and Electronics and Information Technology Minister, and Devusinh Chauhan, Minister of State for Communications, handed the Meghdoot awards to the recipients in New Delhi.

His citation lauded the web-based application designed by him during the Covid lockdown period -- Anche Mitra (Postal Friend) -- which helped customers with digital services. The ‘Get Well Soon’ app designed by Dhananjana helped the postal fraternity and their families during the pandemic.

Chief Postmaster General, Karnataka Circle, Rajendra Kumar S said, “Dhananjaya has contributed immensely to PLI technology that has helped improve quality of service.
