“CSR is a good move for companies to go beyond their regular businesses. It has helped the businesses and the society to grow together. CSR should not be seen as expenditure or money flow from the company’s end but as an investment for developing innovative solutions to address critical human development issues. After the Companies Act, 2013, it has significantly evolved with more companies coming forward with innovative, sustainable, scalable and effective initiatives by applying thought, expertise and the best technology that they can offer.”
