Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is still at a nascent stage in India. It was implemented by the Government of India in April 2014 with an amendment to the Companies Act 2013. In simple words, CSR is the awakening of corporate conscience which aims at embracing the responsibility for the company’s actions. It is a positive step that is taken by responsible and conscious organizations to do social Good beyond the interest or profits of the company. India is amongst the few countries that have made social responsibility mandatory with CSR. This act of nobility also has its tax benefits, and Companies can avail Tax benefits for their CSR contributions. Every Organization should also have a larger purpose of prosperity for Humanity beyond just Business Prosperity. Conscientious Businessmen have been discharging social responsibilities even before CSR came into existence and will continue to do so even later. Social responsibility is inherent in our Indian culture.

I have had a beautiful experience in this work and I request all the traders of India to take the first step forward towards this change. We all together can make a noticeable difference to the society. I have had the Good fortune to help people and you can also get inner joy by helping. When we help someone, a positive message goes on in this nature and its multiples many folds.”
