In most recent writings about the Companies Bill 2012 and related issues there is always a reference, even if in passing, about corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the extent that it is now almost fashionable to discuss CSR. In order to understand CSR and make appropriate use of it, there is a need to grasp its history, its etymology, the detailed guidelines and its ramifications for different stakeholders. The Companies Act, no doubt, acts as the Bible for CSR of Indian companies. However, various leading agencies have provided guidelines for CSR in country specific and/or global contexts. Then thereis need for the actual practices on ground and initiatives to be taken by various companies. We strongly believe that a careful study of the various dimensions of CSR would contribute to the process of strengthening and fine-tuning the CSR initiatives that are still in a fledgling state in our country.

The rationale for the series emerges from the strong belief that CSR is the need of the hour in the crossroads to development that India now finds itself in. Why crossroads? Firstly, initiatives towards socio-economic development in India are going on for many decades now. While we have achieved some significant milestones and are constantly striving harder, a number of goals remain elusive. If anything, these seem more difficult to attain now than they were a few decades back. Surely, it is time for self-reflection. Secondly, across the globe realities on the ground and failed interventions point to one and only one startling fact, that is, the need for more participation from all quarters. Organisations and individuals who have extensive experience in development planning and implementation reaffirm the need for greater participation of all stakeholders. The business community and companies - as the institutions with capital, as employers, as manufacturers or as service providers - are no doubt one of the key stake holders and need to participate.

It was in a similar moment in history that development ceased to be the responsibility of the government and the citizens alone and a third player, now popularly known as the non-governmental sector took on a key role. A similar moment of reckoning has come again. While it may be argued that business and industry has always contributed to development and welfare, it is time to make these contributions more systematic and committed.
