A Review of Corporate Social Responsibility in India

Bimal Arora, Ravi Puranik

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Critiques argue that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a North-led agenda with narrow focus. Bimal Arora and Ravi Puranik apply a development-oriented framework to contextualize CSR to structural adjustments-related macro socio-economic issues relevant to the developing countries, with a focus on CSR in India. They review contemporary CSR trends in India concluding that although the corporate sector in India benefited immensely from liberalization and privatization processes, its transition from philanthropic mindsets to CSR has been lagging behind its impressive financial growth.
