This book presents the authors’ recent field experiences of corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in different regions of India. It also demonstrates how social auditing and stakeholder mapping help analyze the impact that particular individuals or groups may have on the functioning of any company in an area. CSR is a rapidly growing area of research and activity, especially in developing countries like India. An increasing number of companies are realizing their own social responsibility, given that they work within societal networks. As a result, any initiation or expansion activity they carry out in society impacts the communities around them. Given the newness of the field, the work on CSR in India is still in the initial stages. Most importantly, there is a need to highlight issues concerning CSR activities using sound methodologies and scientific data. A database comprising qualitative and quantitative approaches collected by tracking CSR activities is invaluable. Further the scientific data is vital to fully understand CSR, and in turn helps in designing appropriate and effective interventions for improving community members’ quality of life. Accordingly, the stakeholders associated with CSR need to have a sound knowledge of how to conduct studies related to baseline data generation, community needs assessments, community profiling, stakeholder mapping, social impact assessments, monitoring and evaluation, as well as the social auditing of CSR projects and other related issues. This book aptly covers these issues and offers supporting empirical evidences from the field.

The book explores the theoretical and empirical issues relating to the interaction between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities undertaken by Indian companies. It presents a highly detailed view on the evolution of CSR and its nexus with corporate governance. This is particularly timely in the context of the recent Indian Companies Act 2013, which mandates corporate social responsibility and revises the best corporate-governance practices for large companies. The findings of this study are unique in drawing from a unified framework of Indian corporate governance structure and corporate engagement in CSR. The book’s scope is both academic and practical; the research methodology developed and utilized is useful for researchers, while the implications and the selection of variables provide useful information for practitioners and stakeholders. Finally, although it focuses on large Indian companies, the findings can also be applied to research on other emerging economies.

In the contemporary debate on the modern corporation and its impact on the economy, society and nation, the focus has shifted from growth with only profitability to growth with sustainable development, which includes the stakeholders. While there is considerable debate on the corporations' obligations to civil society in the Western world, in the developing countries the debate is sporadic; the present publication is an effort to initiate a nationwide discourse on the concepts and practices of corporate social action in India.The book is divided in two sections; section one contains papers, which analyze the conceptual framework of Corporate Social Responsibility. The unique feature of this book is the case studies on different aspects of CSR presented in section Two. The cases focus on such segments as education, healthcare and environment, among others. It is for the first time that under the aegis of UNDP-CII-AICTE-MDI the business schools in the country participated in preparing cases from various industries focusing on the process and decision making content implicit in the introduction, implementation, and evaluation of various facets of Corporate Social Responsibility. The cases are illustrative and they will help in identifying further areas of research. The teaching notes have been developed by the individual authors, and will be available on request.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – the commitment of organizations to balance financial performance with contributions to the quality of life of their employees, the local community and society at large – is gaining worldwide value as a business tool and social effort. The review of literature suggests that many studies have been undertaken globally to understand CSR as a subject of management but there have been very few studies undertaken to understand the other dimension of CSR which is beneficiary (community) aspect of CSR, especially in India. Here, the authors make an attempt to understand the CSR concept from both the dimensions of CSR i.e. management and beneficiaries of CSR (community). The authors try to understand the issues covered by the management and their implementing strategies in order to meet community needs. Also, the authors try to study the requirements and satisfaction of the community in the area where the corporates implement CSR. This type of attempt is the first one in India to study the community awareness and ist knowledge about CSR as well as the organisations working in the community. The present study also tries to measure the impact of CSR activities undertaken by the organizations in a way to have the sustainable development at village level. In this context, the present study plays a significant role in the field of Research Methodology, the field of management as well as social science, especially from the social work perspective. To meet the study objectives, both primary and secondary data were used. The primary data was collected in Karnataka, India by selecting nine organisations, three of each from Govt., Private and Multinational companies; those were recognised as leaders in implementing CSR activities. To understand the impact of CSR on community, 450 community respondents were also interviewed with the help of structured questionnaire. Secondary data for the study was obtained from Karmayog. CSR Ratings of the 500 largest Indian companies and other similar studies, other available articles, books, companies’ annual reports and related publications were reviewed in the study.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Indian corporations following the 2013 legal mandate on corporate spending of profits for CSR. Bringing together authors hailing from diverse walks of life, the book pursues a 'hands-on' approach, with real-world case studies and examples that help the reader feel the dynamic pulse of India immediately after the ratification of the CSR mandate in the Companies Act, 2013. The Act is expected to affect over 16,300 companies with an estimated flow of approximately 200 billion Indian rupees into the economy every year, thus shaking the foundations of business and society and impacting the country at multiple stakeholder levels. As a result, India is likely to become the birthplace of social, economic, and environmental transformation through financial investments in CSR! In order to insightfully reflect on this transition, this book has been divided into three parts. The first part presents the CSR mandate and its implications, while the second focuses on its implementation and the third part provides a view on the way forward. The book helps to reveal the various layers of CSR in an emerging economy like India and is expected to spark debate, discussion and research among policy-makers, consultants, academics, practitioners and other stakeholders the world over, which will further expand its contribution to CSR literature and open up new vistas in CSR research. "This is indeed a first of its kind book and marks a watershed in the journey of CSR. It is an extremely important contribution to the body of knowledge in the area of CSR and Corporate Governance in emerging economies that is driven by a completely different set of challenges, opportunities and requirements from that of developed economies." Dr. Bhaskar Chatterjee, Director General & CEO, Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs

The book helps in understanding the meaning of business beyond financial numbers and tries to explain how even CSR can be used as a marketing tool and for business benefits. It dwells comprehensively upon the concept of CSR, from its inception as philanthropy till its journey to a form where now it is mandatory to be sensitive about CSR in businesses.

Presenting an analysis of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in India, this book looks at the unique roots of the concept in India. It examines Gandhi’s philosophical moorings that inform India’s approach to CSR, and the role of civil society in setting an agenda for championing the rights of the stakeholders. The book goes on to focus on the role of the government in grooming the Indian business to be sensitive of its social concerns. Drawing on rich empirical data, the book shows that CSR in India cannot be conceptualized in ethnocentric terms. Arguing that it is not about ‘the typical Indianness’ of the articulation, it emphasizes the point that CSR in India needs to be conceptualized in a wider perspective by taking into account its philosophical roots with reference to the prevalent socio-economic and political context. The book is a valuable contribution to the literature on CSR, and is of interest to scholars of Asian Studies, business and development studies.

In India CSR as a mandatory obligation is around five years and the subject area is evolving. The last five years have been a roller coaster ride for many CSR professionals and the journey will continue to be intriguing with an ever-changing landscape. It may take a few more years before we could have seamless processes and systems in place. A good number of development organisations are trying out various ways and means of creating impact with access and availability of CSR grants. It has also seen the emergence of CSR agencies, social enterprises and platforms that will boost and recognise NGO efforts and corporate reputation. These are interesting times indeed! With the emergence of CSR as an important subject in the academia, government and media echelons it is critical that development practitioners and CSR professionals have a philosophical background of the topic. It is also important to understand definitions of various social, economic and political jargons, related institutions and world systems. The book restates and simplifies these from a CSR practitioner’s point of view and captures CSR professional’s journey of understanding the subject area over the years. It also provides few practical approaches to make their role relevant, contextual and prepare for the future. The book also fills the gap of non-availability from a practitioner’s point of view of the CSR subject.
