In fact, after the amendment of Companies Act in 2013 and promulgation of CSR Rules in 2014, addressing and reporting CSR performance has become mandatory.
This training programme is designed based on the provisions of the Act and Rules. The training programme aims at giving practical exposure to participants on CSR with specific reference to the regulatory framework, formulating CSR strategy and policy, stakeholder engagement, methodologies for implementation, performance evaluation and statutory reporting.
