CSR Compliance

Our services

We have worked with leading companies in a range of industries and offer comprehensive and customisable services to help you comply with the requirements of the Companies Act, 2013. This includes working with you on select themes, or even running a programme management unit CSR on your behalf. Our industry expertise includes extractive and minerals, media and telecom, IT/ITeS, manufacturing (industrial and FMCG), financial sector and the government/donor space.

Several Indian companies have been implementing corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes, either on their own, through a dedicated non-profit arm or by funding a few of their NGO partners. The Companies Act (2013) and the revised CSR rules (released in February 2014), takes this agenda of CSR further and makes it a compliance and board-level issue, thereby facilitating increased and conscious social spending.

Our CSR Compliance team can help clients prepare, implement and monitor a cohesive CSR policy that is not only compliant with section 135 of the Act but also need-based, strategic, integrated with the value chains, iterative and geared towards business responsibility reporting. Based on our experience and research, we can offer significant value to our clients (at different stages of the CSR lifecycle), with customised services for planning, assessment, implementation and evaluation, etc.

We help our clients create and implement a comprehensive CSR policy. Our services include the following:

CSR policy and planning

  • Finalise the CSR investment options
  • Structure a tax-efficient mechanism

Implementation and measuring the progress

  • Setting up the CSR governance and monitoring framework
  • Measuring the progress, in terms of outcomes and impact
