The donation made under QNET India’s CSR initiative QNET - WE CARE was handed over in the presence of Mr. T Srinivas Yadav, Minister for Commercial Taxes and Cinematography, State of Telangana, at the glittering awards function with an apt theme of ‘Be1forChennai’
IIFA Utsavam is the first of its kind awards ceremony from the IFFA stable to honour South Indian Film talent - both young and the veterans. Being held for the first time in Hyderabad, this year’s theme has been dedicated to the Chennai flood relief and has got wholehearted support from the entire South Indian film industry. Partnering in this event as an Associate Sponsor, the theme strongly echoes QNET’s philosophy of Raise Yourself To Help Mankind.
QNET - WE CARE is a CSR initiative of QNET in India, which supports causes of the underprivileged members of society in various areas right from health of individuals of destitute adults to supporting victims of natural disasters and more.

QNET in India has also been actively promoting sports for the physically challenged, an often neglected area.
