MOS FINANCE ASKS CORPORATES TO BE PARTICIPATIVE IN CSR ACTIVITIES
 

Minister of State for Finance Mr. Jayant Sinha on Thursday asked the corporates to make their CSR contribution in a participative manner with the CSR projects that they are involved in by developing the local surroundings in an around their project sites rather than making their plain contributions in an artificial manner.
 

Addressing a CSR training programme on Strategies for Result Oriented Corporate Social Responsibility under the joint aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry and ISRN here today, Mr. Sinha called upon the corporate world to emulate corporate entities such as NTPC, Coal India Ltd. and enterprises run by TATA’s to make their CSR contributions more meaningful.
 

“The CSR activities being performed by aforesaid corporates in a State of Jharkhand are so visible and pronounced that their impact is felt at the very first sight because of their developmental work that these have been undertaking to build connectivity and linkages including creation of infrastructure in and around their project’s sites that such works be practiced and followed by others.  Such initiatives lead to participative CSR activities which the government is wanting the corporates to perform”, said Mr. Sinha.
 

The Sr. Vice President of PHD Chamber Mr. Alok B Shriram in his welcome remarks also urged his fellow corporates to lay their individual participations for CSR activities in a much more visible manner so that it becomes participative as the government is wanting the corporates to perform the CSR initiatives.
 

Among other who were present on the occasion comprised Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, Vice President, BJP & Vice Chairperson, ISRN; Mr. Rajnish Goenka, Chairman, Delhi & NCR Committee, PHD Chamber Convener, Organizing Committee, Ex- National Convener, BJP Micro & Small Industry Cell.
