This paper sets out to explore the trends of social responsibility of the corporate sector in India.


The methodology being followed in the paper is exploratory in nature as data are scanty. An analysis has been done on an overall score drawn from a structured questionnaire being administered.


Trends in socially responsible initiatives are both positive and crucial in nature in India.

Research limitations/implications

The vastness of the corporate activities in a big country like India, on the one hand, and the scanty data availability, on the other, lead to issues being restricted in some sectors.

Practical implications

This research has a tremendous effect on society with respect to the CSR approach being conceived, adopted and initiated by UN Global Compact.


The paper has touched on the cutting‐edge research initiatives in the field of CSR.
