1. INTRODUCTION
C.S.R(Corporate Social Responsibility) is a raging concept in the modern world. It is the responsibility of the business houses towards the society. Since they use societys resources they must provide something to the society in return. This is Corporate Social Responsibility of an organisation. Recent trend in India is that the Government has made it mandotary for both Public Sector companies and Private Sector companies to keep aside 2% if their profits for CSR activities. But the companies from both the sectors have gone beyond keeping 2% of profits for C.S.R. CSR is not a new concept in India. Ever since their inception, corporates like the Tata Group, the Aditya Birla Group, and Indian Oil Corporation, to name a few, have been involved in serving the community.Through donations and charity events, many other organizations have been doing their part for the society. The basic objective of CSR in these days is to maximize

the company's overall impact on the society and stakeholders. CSR policies, practices and programs are being comprehensively integrated by a increasing number of companies throughout their business operations and processes. A growing number of corporates feel that CSR is not just another form of indirect expense but is important for protecting the goodwill and reputation, defending attacks and increasing business competitiveness.

CSR Politicies 1. Human Sustainability Policies o Quality & Food Safety Programs PepsiCo is dedicated to producing the safest, highestquality and best-tasting beverages and foods in every part of the world. Developing and maintaining robust

food safety programs is how we assure safety for every package, every day in every market. PepsiCo has detailed internal programs and procedures for food safety. Responsible Marketing Teaching children sensible eating habits at an early age is a critical part of their up-bringing. As a major advertiser, we need to do our part to help parents succeed in this task. Our approach has been to join a leading set of other food and beverage companies in agreeing to change what younger children are seeing advertised on TV and in other media, such as magazines and the internet. Importantly, we are doing this in countries around the world where we do business today. Naturally, we cannot prevent children from seeing our advertising, but we can ensure that media channels that are most targeted at children carry advertisements only for certain products. From PepsiCo's perspective, these are products that meet specific nutrition criteria intended to encourage the consumption of healthier foods and beverages. The policy covers our entire product portfolio and is subject to independent compliance monitoring by Accenture. Healthcare Reform PepsiCo values the health and well-being of our associates, partners, customers and consumers. PepsiCo offers a wide range of benefits that encourages wellness, promotes healthy living and gives associates and their families tools and information to make educated healthcare decisions.

2. Environmental Sustainability Policies PepsiCo is committed to being an environmentally responsible corporate citizen. We express that commitment in our Environmental Policy and other policies related to Environmental Compliance and Sustainability, a few of which are described in more detail below. o PepsiCo's Environmental Policy PepsiCo's Environmental Policy applies to all our operations. PepsiCo monitors company-owned operations and joint ventures where we hold a majority share. We encourage our suppliers, service providers, bottlers and other partners to adhere to the policy. o Sustainable Agriculture Policy We have developed and published our Global Sustainable Agriculture Policy, which demonstrates our approach to sustainable development across our entire agriculture supply chain, including water savings, waste reuse, soil protection and chemical use. o Sustainable Packaging Policy We have launched a global sustainable packaging policy and formed a Sustainable Packaging Council (SPC). This multidisciplinary team includes leaders from our R&D, Innovation, Procurement, Sales & Marketing and Public Policy groups.

PepsiCo has also made an investment in a world class potato mini-tuber facility at Zahura in Punjab which helps getting robust and disease-free seeds to its contract farmers.

Contract Farming Partner In Progress Model PepsiCo has pioneered the concept of contract farming under which the company transfers agricultural best practices and technology and procures the produce at a pre-agreed price.

A 27-acre research and demonstration farm was set up in Punjab to support the initiative to conduct farm trials of new varieties of potato, chilli, corn, peanut and other crops. PepsiCo India's technical team implemented a high quality seed programme to deliver early generation and disease-free seeds to farmers.

Potato Farming The Impact

Besides IGL and MGL, GAIL has set up several JVs for CGD to supply gas to households, transport sector & commercial consumers in various cities including Hyderabad, Agartala, Kanpur, Indore, Vadodara, Lucknow, Agra and Pune. In 2008, GAIL incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary, GAIL Gas Ltd (GGL) to exclusively focus on city gas distribution business. GGL has been authorized for implementation of CGD projects in four cities namely Kota, Dewas, Sonepat & Meerut in the 1st round of bidding by Petroleum & Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB). Leveraging on its pipeline network, GAIL has built a strong Optic Fibre Cable (OFC) network of approximately 13,000 km for its own internal use and leasing of bandwidth as a carriers' carrier.

Further, GAIL and China Gas have formed an equally owned joint venture company GAIL China Gas Global Energy Holdings Limited for pursuing gas sector opportunities primarily in China.

C.S.R In terms of the guidelines issued by the Department of Public Enterprises, GAIL has allocated an annual budget of 2% of the

previous years Profit after Tax for CSR activities, which is effectively used for carefully chosen programmes. Socially useful programmes have been undertaken in GAIL since its inception in and around the areas adjoining its major work centres under the SCP/TSP Plan. But over the years, the scope of the CSR activities, the nature of programmes undertaken and the systems adopted for implementation of these programmes have been streamlined and strengthened and the work under SCP/TSP came under the wider scope of CSR. Today, CSR & sustainability development is accorded high priority in the organizational ethos and attempted to be interwoven in all the business activities and the projects that are being undertaken by the company. During the year 2010-11, the company has taken up programmes of a value of approximately Rs.57.5 Crs for implementation under the seven thrust areas, which include Community Development, Infrastructure, Healthcare/Medical, Skill Development/Empowerment, Educational Aids, Environment Protection, Drinking Water/Sanitation.

For the sustainable development of the whole community GAIL is also supporting integrated livelihood programmes in villages especially for small and Marginal farmers. This would be considered as a drop in the vast ocean but GAIL along with other Oil PSUs is contributing towards provision of LPG connections to BPL

families under Rajiv Gandhi Gramin LPG Vitrak Yojana. This collaborative combined effort of the Oil PSUs would be able to generate a huge wave in the ocean in UP region. GAIL believes that for providing better tomorrow for the community where it has its working the focus should be on the future of the community i.e. CHILDREN & STUDENTS. So in view of this belief GAIL is providing vehicles for distribution of Mid-Day Meal for underprivileged children of Government schools so as to encourage the young girls and boys to educate themselves for their better & secured life.

Medicinal Plant Project An initiative by Dabur Nepal Pvt. Ltd. Dehi me dadami te (As you give me, I give you in return). This quote from an ancient text sums up Daburs commitment towards nature. With a strong foundation in the Himlayan Kingdom, Nepal, Dabur has taken many strong -- but quiet -initiatives in last one and half decade towards corporate social responsibility. Dabur Nepal Pvt. Ltd. is a joint venture company established in the year 1989 when probably very few investors had their roots in Ayurveda. Thanks to the favourable climatic conditions here, Nepal has been a major source for the herbal plants which are extensively used in Tibetan, Chinese, Nepalese and Indian medicines. However, due to indiscriminate use, over exploitations, poor collection methods, early harvesting and lack

of the post harvest technology, these natural reserves are depleting speedily. Whats worse, there are no systematic efforts to replenish these natural resources of medicinal plants in the Himalayan region. Dabur Nepal has started the project on medicinal plants in Nepal to provide the modern technology for cultivation of the required medicinal herbs of Himalayas to the farmers. The only eco-friendly project of CSR nature in Nepal, this initiative is fully integrated with the companys business vision. A state-of-the-art Greenhouse facility has been set up at Banepa, which has the capability to produce 5-6 million saplings of medicinal plants per annum. All the required climatic parameters for uniform growth of saplings of the medicinal plants like temperature, humidity etc. are controlled by automatic computer systems.

The support classes will not only enable the children to perform better but also ensure that they remain in school and do not drop out due to bad performance. VOCATIONAL EDUCATION: The youth can and should be instrumental in bringing about a social change and be assets to the development of their communities. Unemployment afflicts the underprivileged youth because majority of them are not only semiliterate or undereducated but also posses no vocational ability i.e. technical / business skills for self-employment. As part of their corporate social responsibility initiative, the Foundation has been supporting various projects to impart

vocational training to the underprivileged youth and make them productive members of the society. PURE EDUCATION: Axis Bank Foundation strives to ensure that the fruits of education reaches every corner of the country. We have joined hands with several rural partners to make primary education reachable for every child. SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS: Providing Sustainable Livelihoods is a means to alleviate poverty and bring about positive changes in the socio- economic conditions of a country. Keeping in mind the current agrarian conditions in India, and the need to address issues in regards to employment, employability in 2011, ABF decided to venture into the domain of Sustainable Livelihoods. Through their various programs we aim to create one million sustainable livelihoods in the next five years. SKILL DEVELOPMENT: Their programs in this area aim at enhancing or teaching new skills to enable our beneficiaries to take up a job or start an enterprise of their own. Programs like PREMA and Yuva Parivartan impart skills like motor driving, electrician, welding, mobile repairing, tailoring as well as courses in hotel management, nursing, computer software and hardware, to youth living in some of the most backward districts of India; making

these youth financially independent and contributors to the family income. Within the programs we also have specialised training for adolescent girls and mothers on health, nutrition, sanitation, kitchen gardening, various livelihood initiatives and policy awareness. The skill development programs place great importance on placement of the trainees and in helping budding entrepreneurs set up small enterprises of their own. OTHER PROGRAMS: About 60% of the Indian population is dependent on agriculture for a livelihood. People at Axis Bank Foundation seek to address issues that plague the agricultural domain like low agricultural productivity, lack of efficient water management, farmer suicides etc. through our various interventions ranging from creating water infrastructure, soil treatment to ensure higher yield, low cost agricultural operations , aggregation of the produce, creating value addition, market linkages etc. Their programs aim to improve the productivity of farms belonging to small and marginal farmers and help them achieve a more remunerative price for their agricultural produce. They help in creating strong local institutions of the people and economic empowerment of women through appropriate interventions. They work primarily in the poorest regions of the country in the states of Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Odisha, Chhattisgarh and Tamil Nadu. PUBLIC HEALTH AND MEDICAL RELIEF: At Axis Bank Foundation, they identified the need for highway trauma care and medical relief, primarily for the underprivileged

people across the country with a rehabilitation program and hence have decided to focus on these two areas also.

HIGHWAY TRAUMA CARE: A number of people who meet with accidents on highways face a tragic end due to the lack of medical attention within the 'golden hour' i.e. one hour after the accident. Axis Bank Foundation provides medical rehabilitation program by working with Lifeline Foundation for more than 3 years and funds their Highway Rescue Project in the states of Maharashtra, Kerala and Rajasthan. RURAL MEDICAL RELIEF: They work with some NGOs who provide medical relief to people affected by cyclones, epidemic break outs, etc. These NGOs provide essential life saving medicines to the rural people in the interiors of the states and play a major role in ferrying patients from their villages to the hospitals. 17.RANBAXY Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited (Ranbaxy), India's largest pharmaceutical company, is an integrated, research based, international pharmaceutical company, producing a wide range of quality, affordable generic medicines, trusted by healthcare professionals and patients across geographies.

Numerous positive initiatives were undertaken during the year to enhance workplace safety. Our Dewas site further added a road safety initiative to educate employees, contractors and the local community on positive road behaviour. Emergency preparedness at Ranbaxy was ensured through regular table top and mock drills exercises, at all manufacturing sites as well as at R&D.

20.UNION BANK OF INDIA

A Glorious Past - A Brighter Future Union Bank of India was established on 11th November 1919 with its headquarters in the city of Bombay now known as Mumbai. The Head Office building of the Bank in Mumbai was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the nation in the year 1921, and he said on the occasion: "We should have the ability to carry on a big bank, to manage efficiently crores of rupees in the course of our national activities. Though we have not many banks amongst us, it does not follow that we are not capable of efficiently managing crores and tens of crores of rupees." His prescient words anticipated the growth of the bank that has taken place in the decades that followed. The Bank now operates through over 2800 branches across the country. The Bank's core values of prudent management without ignoring opportunities is reflected in the fact that the Bank has shown uninterrupted profit during all 90 years of its operations. Union Bank has been playing a very proactive role in the economic growth of India and it extends credit for the requirements of different sectors of economy. Industries, exports, trading, agriculture, infrastructure and the individual segments are sectors in which the bank has deployed credit to spur economic growth and to earn from a well diversified portfolio of assets. Resources are mobilised through Current, Savings and Term

Deposits and through refinance and borrowings from abroad. The Bank has a large clientele base of over 24 million. On the technology front the Bank has taken early initiatives and 100% of its branches are computerised. The Bank has also introduced Core Banking Solution with connectivity between branches. 100% of the business of the Bank is under Core Banking Solution making it a leader among its peers in infusion of technology.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

OVERVIEW: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can be termed as a tribute that a corporate pays to 'virtue', the virtue of being a part and parcel of the community it exists in and grows. In this era of globalization there is an ever increasing emphasis on CSR from non-government organizations, charities, educational institutions and peers in the industry to give CSR a serious consideration alongside the core business. This new semblance of awakening has actually sent a lot of business leaders and academicians back to the basics of why at all the corporates evolved, what are their role and responsibility and thereby the impact they have on the society. One acclaimed instance that is shown around, as the proof of the new trend, is 'Business with Human Face' as now practiced and preached by many. Given all this, at the core of it, CSR is a voluntary act of compassion shown by a corporate entity to the society and the environment where in the corporate gives back to the society some part of what it has earned from being a part of such society. THEIR VIEW: At Union Bank of India, they feel that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is directly linked to the core business of the bank. It encompasses as to how the bank adds social, environmental and economic value in all its activities to make a positive, sustainable impact on both the society and the business. CSR is usually misunderstood for charity, following the bandwagon of traditional corporate philanthropy many corporates undertakes it with an underlying motive of giving the company visibility and easy gains, but this thought process is not likely to provide long-term local benefits, as it is not possible to

maintain continuity and consistency. Businesses, civil society, governments, and development agencies should work together to improve infrastructure and services whereby they can each use their core competencies to help overcome any obstacles. Theirs being a Bank whose corporate office was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, we have been proudly following his footsteps in serving the society, even as we are growing our business for more than nine decades. OUR INITIATIVES: They understand that large-scale Corporate Social Responsibility programs need management support and involvement to make it a success and thus we realize that the management must actively promote CSR's value in the company, otherwise it will only be seen as a 'good to promote' rather than 'the way a company does businesses'. In order to ensure that our CSR objectives are met we contribute towards:

1. BUILDING THE NATION It is often said, "Today's children are Tomorrow's citizens". As a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility in creating responsible citizens of the future we realize that the children need to be groomed from a tender age to be responsible citizens and thus,

a. The Bank provides infrastructure to the schools by providing them benches, chairs and other necessary

materials. The students get school bags, uniforms and sandals for their well being. Other infrastructure like almirahs, computers, water coolers and other essentials are also provided with the active support of the Panchayat and local School Management. b. A Government of India survey reveals that drop out from the school is because of not having two square meals daily. Union Bank is indirectly helping for providing hot sumptuous meals to the students of various states by providing support to the charitable institutions.

2. CARING FOR THE SICK

a. The Bank has helped various Hospitals by providing Ambulances to transport patients in and out of the Hospital. b. The bank not only understands the critical health issues but also propagates the same to the village folks by conducting regular health camps and blood donation camps in various centres across the country.

3. CARING FOR THE SOCIETY:

a) They have introduced an insurance scheme 'Janashree Bima Yojana' with the co-operation of LIC

to the women members of credit linked Self Help Groups. They have also introduced 'Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana' for the hawkers who have availed loans from us thorough our biometric card loan product. b) During various Natural Calamities that has affected the nation, Union Bank has always extended a helping arm to the affected areas by providing financial support.

4. EMPLOYEE PARTICIPATION: Their Bank not only actively involves itself in CSR but also makes the employees enthusiastic about the work they are doing. They try to understand that the involvement of the employees is very important in running a successful CSR program. So, they motivate their employees by conducting various workshops, from time to time, to establish healthy linkages between all members of a multi-stakeholder and multi-sector society. All their employees play an important role in the economic growth of the country. In addition to driving economic growth, their active participation has a direct effect on poverty alleviation through the Bank's own policies and practices. 5. INCLUSIVE GROWTH INITIATIVE

Another instance where we are furthering CSR by the development of the people is through Financial Inclusion. Here they provide banking services through

bio-metric smart card and business correspondents under the branchless banking mode to people hitherto excluded from formal banking channels like the hawkers and street children of Mumbai & other cities, the beneficiaries of Wages under NREGPS & SSP and the small milk-pourers with National Dairy Development Board. They have a wide range of products to suit their specific needs like Micro-Credit repayable in Equated Weekly Installment (a first of its kind in the industry) matching their flow of revenue, an inbuilt Micro-Insurance for all those who avail a loan with a nominal premium to cover their major risks and a Micro-Remittance product. They have enrolled more than 3.2 million customers up to Sep, 10 for a No-Frill Account based on Biometric Smart Card technology. Initially, we provide them only a No Frills SB account, but gradually we are introducing them to other products that are available in the formal banking channel like deposit products, loan products and remittance products, albeit in small size. Thus, the more these products are used the social and economic up-liftment of the beneficiaries is facilitated.

6. OTHER INITIATIVES:

The Bank has also established Chairs at Madras school of Economics, Chennai, Great lake institute of Management-Chennai, and IIM, Ahmedabad for

centres of Banking Excellence with a total corpus amount of Rs.4.50 crores. The Bank has also provided financial assistance to various social causes through institutions like Raksha, Cochin - a school for disabled children, Ramakrishna Mission- Nagpur, Madhyagram Municipality- Kolkata, Satchidananda Institute of Medical Sciences- Kerala, Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti- Jaipur, and Cochin Child Foundation.

4. CONCLUSION
After studying all the 20 companies and making an in-depth study on 2 companies it can be concluded that CSR being a vast subject has a great importance for any organisation as well as the society. To see beyond the organistional boundaries and coming out to give back to the society, itself is a rewarding act. In India CSR has become a compulsory act as per Department of Public Enterprises. Many full fledged companies have gone beyond the

2% lower barrier, only to reach heights in Corporate Social Responsibility.
