What do you know about India CSR Act. 2013?
Well CSR means Corporate Social Responsibility, and in year 2013 govt of india made statute/act/law and made it mandatory to the all corporates to spent their 2% of their annual income, net worth and turnover. On social work towards poor’s, underprivileged and environment. In that they have to follow certain rules and guidelines.
Do you think that for a good CSR, a corporate needs to have proper education in the same domain?
Yes, Definitely corporate should needs a proper education in same domain, so that they can initiate the good CSR. Now days we really need a smart work force in the domain of CSR
What is the biggest weakness of Indian corporation in CSR?
First Biggest weakness is the lack of education in the domain of CSR, we have seen many corporates don’t have a proper CSR manpower and they are totally dependent on NGO’s and NGO’s are also not that qualified, i am sure they have knowledge in their domains but for good CSR they have to have some qualification for the better understanding of the act.
Do you think that CSR act should be applicable to the whole world for the better placement of the society?
Society need to better development and placement. Without corporate support it is very difficult so it should be applicable for whole world.
What are the challenges Indian corporates are facing nowadays?
Many companies think that corporate social responsibility is a peripheral issue for their business and customer satisfaction more important for them. They imagine that customer satisfaction is now only about price and service, but they fail to point out on important changes that are taking place worldwide that could blow the business out of the water. The change is named as social responsibility which is an opportunity for the business. The practical implementation of CSR is faced with a lot of issues and challenges.
How corporate can resolve the problem of the underprivileged and the poor’s?
Tianna Gaines-Turner, a child-care worker from Philadelphia, presented these three suggestions to Congress this week during the House of Representative’s latest hearing on the War on Poverty. What makes Gaines-Turner’s testimony different is firsthand experience. Gaines-Turner and her husband have struggled for years to escape poverty while raising their children — a 10-year-old son (who, she proudly noted, was on the honor roll), and two 6-year-old twins. Both parents work: Her husband is employed at a grocery store for $8.50 an hour, and Tianna leaves home each day at 7:00 a.m. to take care of children aged 4 to 16 for $10.88 an hour. Nonetheless, her family struggles to make ends meet and put food on the table. Twice, Gaines-Turner, her husband and their three kids have been homeless.
The House Budget Committee has been conducting hearings on poverty and the safety net since last year — Paul Ryan (R-WI), the committee’s head, has often declared that LBJ’s War on Poverty, now fifty years old, failed and must be replaced. Thursday’s was the fifth. Gaines-Turner was the first poor person to testify. She did so through the Witnesses to Hunger program.
- Provide living wages and family-oriented labor policies.
- Invest in a safety net that supports and promotes economic mobility.
- Invest in community solutions, run by people who know poverty firsthand.

Promoting education of deprived children, giving free medical service to the poor and creating assets for future generation are the glimpses of their benevolent activities.

Any suggestions for the Indian corporate CSR leaders?
The Indian corporate world should understand that country comes first and personal gains are only the by product. Being a social creature, man is always supposed to discharge his social responsibilities. Corporates are competent to discharge their duties towards social sector. They should do it as their primary duty.
