Title: Issues and Concerns- Learning's from Central Conclave

Issues and Concerns- Learning's from Central
  • Draft Document

Issues discussed and responses of DPE and NCSR Hub
  • Should CSR be linked ONLY to the core business of
    the CPSEs?
  • Response- every CPSE has specific capacity/ focus
    area so it is better if CSR is related to the
    core competency but the focus should be beyond
    that and not only limited to core competency.
  • Why activities related to staff benefits do not
    come under CSR?
  • Response-CSR is beyond charitable and
    philanthropic activities carried out by CPSEs.
    The focus of CSR should be on outreach and
    community development. The benefits provided for
    employees cannot be included under CSR.

DPE Guidelines -Issues discussed and responses
  • CSR should be insulated from audit and central
    vigilance committee
  • Response- If CSR is in adherence to DPE
    guidelines and meticulously documented, CPSEs
    should not hesitate from vigilance.
  • Can CSR projects be identified by the CSR
    committee of the CPSEs?
  • Response- CSR projects should be based on the
    outcome of the baseline studies carried out by
    external agency and not departmentally.

DPE Guidelines -Issues discussed and responses
  • Who will assess the expenditure on CSR projects
    undertaken by CPSEs?
  • Response- Funding of the projects will be decided
    by the board and the CSR committee. NCSR Hub is a
    facilitator and can help CPSEs get in touch with
    implementing agencies which will help them in the
    finer details
  • CPSEs face challenges while dealing with NGOs.
    Need is felt to sensitize the NGOs on the DPE
    guidelines by CPSEs
  • Response- the need for sensitization of NGOs is
    recognized by the NCSR Hub and ongoing efforts
    are made. However, given the magnitude of number
    of NGOs in India it is not feasible to offer
    training to all . The Hub is therefore
    sensitizing the NGOs as and how they are
    empanelled with Hub.

DPE Guidelines- Issues discussed and responses
  • Promoting interaction within CPSEs and other
  • Response- The Hub is in process of creating space
    for Blog on the website which will enhance and
    promote interaction on wide range of issues
    concerning all stakeholders. This will be a
    platform for debate and discussion on CSR.
  • Can activities undertaken by the CPSEs to cover
    the damage caused due to its operations be
    included under CSR
  • Response- The approach towards CSR should be
    responsive, responsible and sustainable. The
    activities undertaken to cover up the damage can
    not be included under the purview of CSR.

Issues discussed and responses- DPE Guidelines
  • What is the need to have external agencies/NGOS
    to implement CSR activities when the CPSEs have
    the capacity and expertise to undertake it
  • Response- Philanthropic or charitable activities
    can be undertaken by the CPSEs themselves.
    However, not all the CPSEs have the expertise or
    resources to undertake project based CSR
    activities especially when they are long
    term-medium term. Also, when the task force is
    assigning marks to the CPSEs they will see if it
    is in adherence with the DPE guidelines.

DPE Guidelines - Issues discussed and responses
  • What does contracted agency imply in the DPE
  • Response- In case of infrastructural setup
    undertaken by CPSEs it has to be handed over to a
    contractor which is done by a tendering process.
    Such agencies refer to those carrying out the
    civil work for implementation of projects.
