Ref.No. ICID/HIS/30-A
Dated 8 February 2017


ICID National Committees/Committee

Subject: Call for nominations for Recognition as Heritage Irrigation Structures (HIS) – Revised deadline

Dear Sir / Madam,

Kindly recall the call for nominations for recognition of Heritage Irrigation Structures (HIS) which was issued on 25 January 2017.

I hope the nominations from your National Committee (NC) are under consideration. While you prepare for submitting nominations, please note that the deadline for receiving the HIS nomination is 30 June 2017 instead of 31st May 2016 as inadvertently mentioned in the e-mail below. My apologies for the inadvertent mistake in the deadlines as above.

Considering the increasing number of nominations and the request of Panel of Judges to restrict the total number of entries in a given year a maximum of 4 nominations from NC will be entertained starting from 2017. Accordingly, NCs are requested to submit up to 4 nominations only.

Looking forward to receive nominations for HIS-2017 by 30 June 2017.

Best regards

Yours sincerely,

Vijay K. Labhsetwar, PhD
