CSRBOX and Dalmia Bharat  Foundation have come together to host the mega forum ‘North East CSR Forum’ in Guwahati on 26th February 2019.

Mandatory CSR has made a lot of change in India’s development landscape. It has gradually formalised the corporate philanthropy and corporate giving with emphasis on impacts on the ground. With an average INR 14,000 crore CSR fund annually, there is a lot that can be done to further the agenda of social development in the country.

Going by the CSR data analysis of previous four years, beginning from FY 2014-15, states with high concentration of industries and businesses have been receiving substantial amount of CSR fund while states like Bihar, Jammu & Kashmir and entire region of North East has been at the lower rung of CSR priorities for businesses. Eight states of North East (including Sikkim) have received just 7.32% of India’s total CSR spend in previous 4 years while Maharashtra alone has received 15.60% of the country’s total CSR spend.

North East region present good opportunities for businesses to undertake development interventions, engage with government agencies and collaborate with like-minded institutions and organizations to design and test innovative social impact models.
