DAY-NRLM organizes CSR conclave with Corporates for synergysing efforts at the grassroots

Around 60% of the total CSR funds spent in the period 2014-15 to 2020-21 were spent on activities related to education, health care and rural development.

CSR is a commitment by businesses to incorporate social and environmental concerns into their business operations.

Under this, companies fulfilling certain conditions have to spend 2% of their average net profit on CSR activities.

CSR spending has been made mandatory for the following companies:

  • Having a net worth of Rs 500 crore or more during any financial year, or having a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore or more, or having a net profit of Rs 5 crore or more during the last three consecutive financial years.
  • Activities eligible for CSR include contributing to Swachh Bharat Kosh, Clean Ganga Kosh, Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan etc.
  • Companies may make token donations or conduct CSR activities themselves, which lack strategic planning and impact assessment.
