Social Investment by PSU in North East Region of India
Corporate social responsibility has gained much importance in the changed business environment in India. A large number of big corporate houses have set up their Trust and Development Foundations for initiating CSR activities. Even some of the Corporate Houses embarked upon corporate social responsibility initiatives and at the later stage, they developed a full-fledged institute / organization committed towards social development. There has been a progressive increase in social investment by the Corporate Houses in the country. Large MNCs like Tata Group, ITC, Ranbaxy, Infosys, Microsoft, Dr. Reddy's Laboratory, etc. have endeavored to create a better social order by investing hugely in social development. However, Tata Group has emerged to be the pioneer in the field as it has comparatively larger social investment. A number of institutions and social development organizations are being supported by Tata Group in the field. The present paper highlights the CSR spending by PSUs in north east region of India.
