True to its motto of ‘For Athletes, by Athletes’, a team from Steadfast went to the DM’s office to celebrate the champion’s victory. Steadfast lauded the IAS officer during its conversation with him:: "To serve the country as an IAS officer is itself a matter of great pride, , and along with that the performance you have given on the court will continue to stay in the memory of Steadfast Nutrition for years to come. The way you discharged your administrative duties with diligence and at the same time did not let your focus move from sports, represents your limitless love for the country."

To mark the special occasion, the Steadfast team conducted a cake cutting ceremony, and presented a bouquet of flowers to the DM, along with gifts from Steadfast Nutrition, which included Incredible Whey protein, a Steadfast track suit and more.
