This report ‘CSR in India: The Numbers Do Add Up’ is an effort to bring forth the big picture of CSR fund flow in India and catalyse CSR partnership for ‘better impacts’. The report covers the big 500 companiesof India, largely listed on Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange. All of these companies were required to spend INR 1 Cr. or more on CSR projects in FY 16-17.
All the data presented in this report is based on the officially reported data of the companies from FY 2014-15 to 2016-17. The projected data for FY 17-18 and FY18-19 is on the basis of CSR trends of previous three years, along with reported average net profit of companies in preceding three years. All the data-sets and the analysis in this report pertain to CSR portfolio analysis of big 500 companies.
The report is an effort to present the big picture of CSR fund flow in India to initiate discussions on how we can leverage the mandatory CSR provisions to catalyse the development interventions.
The Report is largely structured in two parts:
Part I: CSR Trend Analysis and Projections FY 2014-15 to FY 2018-19
Part II: Estimated Prescribed CSR in FY 2018-19
If we look at the numbers for all the companies that fall under the purview of the CSR compliance, the total prescribed CSR would cross INR 50,000 Cr in these five years.
