It was on 15th August 2005 that the Tamil Nadu Ggovernment conferred the "Best Private Employer” award on M/s. Laser Soft Infosystems Ltd, Chennai for employing a large number of disabled persons.
At a glittering ceremony held on the Independence Day, TN chief minister Jayalalithaa, Chief Minister of Tamilnadu presented the award to Laser Soft Infosystems Ltd CMD Suresh Kamath.
This award is meant for the "Individuals/ Employers strived for the welfare of Physically Handicapped and especially for providing employment to a number of physically challenged persons. Vijaya Lakshmi Palanisamy and secretary, social welfare and NMP Department L N. Vijayaraghavan and other officials also participated in the function.
Government of Tamil Nadu has again singularly identified chairman Kamath and showered unqualified encomium on him for his yeoman service towards the cause of socially and physically challenged people. What seems to have motivated the government of Tamil Nadu is Kamath's unique experiment to empower the deprived by giving them a gainful employment in his firm and make it a runaway success.
