Abstract: Corporate Social Responsibility has become a mainstream global business strategy in recent years and a large number of firms in the world issue numerous activities as a part of it. India is one of the first among few countries in the world to have a CSR act and the first to bring about legislation to implement CSR activities.The Government of India has made two significant interventions in the field of CSR– in 2010, it made compulsory for public as well as private enterprises to spend 2 to 5 percent of their net profit on CSR; and it amended the Companies Act, 1956 that made compulsory provision for CSR under Section 135 in 2013. In this context this article is an attempt to discuss the progress in CSR initiatives in India over the years.
