Pooran Chandra Pandey to chair national CSR Summit in Mumbai: ‘Looking back and looking ahead: Corporate social responsibility laws in India’


Mumbai, 23 September 2018, BIMTECH, one of India’s leading corporate business schools, holding its fifth CSR summit together with National HRD Network, has invited Pooran Chandra Pandey, the managing project director of the DOC Research Institute, to chair a high-profile national panel on 24 August at the Hilton hotel in Mumbai.

The objective of the conference is to discuss policy issues related to businesses’ contribution to society and to look at the need for application of corporate social responsibility (CSR) rules in the context of national law.

The panel’s recommendations will be sent to key stakeholders including both Indian and international multinational corporations operating in the country, central government and state governments, and civil society organisations, in order to provoke a simplification of procedures governing the implementation of CSR projects and to help grass-roots interventions make greater impact.

This national summit is fifth in the series and over the years has advocated aligning business and government goals with community interests.

Participants will join the panel from Philips Lighting, the government of Maharashtra, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), and Siemens.
