The State of CSR in India Report – 2014-22 – Data Guide 2023

With more than INR 1.53 Lakh Crore spent in eight years, today, CSR is recognised as a credible source of development finance. Where are these funds being deployed? Who are the funders? What do the trends look like?

8 years of CSR – Impact Over Compliance.

In 2014, India became the first country in the world to mandate CSR spend through legislative action. The legal mandate on CSR applies to companies that have:

  • Net worth of INR 500 Crore or more, OR
  • Annual turnover of INR 1000 Crore or more, OR
  • Net profit of INR 5 Crore or more.

Companies, thus coming under the CSR mandate, have to spend at least 2% of their average net profits of the preceding three years on social impact programmes in every financial year.

While the CSR spending has increased by more than 1.5 times since its inception in 2014, the yearly spend for the last three years has remained relatively constant – in the range of INR 25-26 Thousand Crore.
