Presented by Mobil1, the Awards will once again honour the best cars and bikes in the country’s vibrant automobile sector and give recognition to the minds and the efforts behind their success.

The NDTV Car & Bike Awards have emerged as the most credible automobile industry awards that have created a niche for themselves in the sector and among automobile aficionados.

We are very happy with the anticipation around this year's edition, and I too cannot wait to find out who will be going home with the coveted trophies on awards night.”

He further added, “The 9th edition of our own independent and trusted automobile awards will once again establish a set of credible winners - chosen by an eminent jury comprising the best names in the business. I am equally excited as always by the annual Viewers' Choice category.
