The Prem Bhatia Awards for politics and environment, given in the memory of the prolific journalist known for his political reportage, were presented last Saturday at IIC.

Singh won it for her coverage of environmental issues that included an in-depth report on mining in Goa and protests over the Posco Steel plant in Odisha — researched as a fellow of Centre for Science and Environment.
'From the serious conflicts over water breaking out across the country, to poignant stories of a beleaguered community standing up to the state in the POSCO conflict, from the capture of land and resources by mining companies in Goa, to the damage caused to that state by unplanned tourism, Shalini Singh has reported on these with a clear eye and an easy-to-read style devoid of the jargon and clichés that so often crowd environmental and development journalism…' read a part of the citation.
