This book examines the Indian mandate for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and its implementations in various individual
organizations. Although the mandate is applicable only to certain large and stable companies, many believe that India is poised
to become the birthplace of social, economic and environmental transformation, given the immense size of the Indian population
and its challenging socio-economic index. The book explores the various facets of CSR investigation and places special emphasis
on the Schedule VII of the Indian Companies Act of 2013, which defines specific areas of intervention for these companies.
In addition, it provides a wealth of first-hand case studies that exemplify the ongoing developments and the fundamental challenges
and opportunities of mandated CSR.
