WAF Awards uphold Global Auto Industry standards powered by process and analytics to result in accuracy and to negate bias towards a particular company or individual.

An Advisory Council undertook short-listing and selection, while a jury panel selected winners based on parameters set by the Advisory Council.
Mr. Sumit Sawhney- Country CEO & MD- Renault India, said, “WAF awards have created a niche for itself though only in its second year of existence.
