APTransco chairman and managing director K Vijayanand received the award from Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at the 11th international conference on corporate social responsibility at Bengaluru on Saturday.  The awards jury was headed by former Supreme Court Chief Justice M N Venkatachalaih.

Reacting to the selection of APTransco for the award, Vijayanand said that the corporation has maintained the highest transmission availability of 99.95 per cent and lowest transmission losses of 2.97 per cent in the country with the support from the State government and commitment of employees.
