The QC Circle Competition, an annual feature since 1986, is the culmination of the State, Regional and National conventions that take place throughout the year as part of CII’s continuous efforts to strengthen the Quality movement in India. The Preliminary Competition, which is an annual feature includes presentations by QC Circle teams of CII member companies only. CII (Northern Region) organizes Preliminary contests for the QC Circle Competitions at 8 states in the NR (i.e. Jaipur, Gurgaon, Ludhiana, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Noida, Dehradun and New Delhi). The top TWO teams of the Preliminary Competition are awarded the Rolling Trophies and a Certificate is given to each participant. This convention provides a unique opportunity to motivate workers to form Quality Circles within the company and will also provide them with an opportunity to exchange ideas, views and share experiences on various approaches to problem solving through Quality Circles.
The top two teams from each of the Preliminary Contests compete at the Regional Final, which is held during Dec - Jan at New Delhi.
