Book Details

Business in India is on a growth trajectory and is turning out to be a major contributor to the social development of the country. In recent times, there has been an evident swing away from charity and traditional philanthropy towards more direct engagement of business in mainstream development and concern for disadvantaged groups in the society.

They encompass integrated socio-economic development of rural communities; capacity building , employmentand education of the youth; empowering citizens; developing and providing support for the mentally and physically challenged; unique microfinance programme for the poorer sections of society; and IT-based interventions fro rural India.
