India is the first country in the world that mandates corporate social responsibility. On 1 April, 2014, the Government of India implemented CSR Act requiring companies to spend 2% of their net profit on social development. India CSR Law, Section 135, is a clause under Companies Act, 2013, Government of India.
Conceived to convey more accountability in all major domains of business functioning, and especially to improve the governance, the Act has become almost synonymous with ‘Giving Back’ for socio-economic development in the clause 135 of Companies Act, 2013.
Why such a mega forum is required in India?
Thanks to CSR Legislation, in the last five years, Corporates have shown tremendous interest on participating in larger development practices of nation building. The Summit is a flag bearer of Corporate Social Responsibility in India. The forum will set new benchmarks and goals for the business responsibility on social change.
