Professor Indranil Bose, also the coordinator of IIMC Case Research Centre, said SIMsePAY, as it is popularly called, was remarkably innovative for its simplicity, applicability and timeliness.
"I am sure this unique case study on 'Digital India' will be read, analysed, and appreciated by students of management institutions around the world as well as practitioners who are interested in launching innovations in an emerging economy, he said.
The second case study "Switchon O'nergy: Social innovation challenges at the bottom of the pyramid" by Prof Ramendra Singh and student Menaka Rao won the award in the sustainable business models category.
About the second case study, Singh said "It is very fulfilling to see hybrid organizations such as 'Switchon-O'nergy' get international visibility through this case study, as India is the headquarter of International Solar Alliance (ISA) that aims at reducing production and development cost of solar products to facilitate higher deployment of solar technologies in remote regions at the bottom of the pyramid."
The director in charge of IIM Calcutta, Prof B N Srivastava said that in line with IIM Calcutta's vision of developing high impact research-oriented output, these two case studies together was a new milestone.
IIMC Case Research Centre (IIMCCRC), a Centre of Excellence, was founded in June 2012 to develop a repository of cases.
IIMCCRC develops India specific case studies of the highest quality that are used by educational institutions and industry practitioners, the statement said.
