CSR: Welding conscience into the balance-sheet 11.5.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) appears to be the new route to corporate redemption. Or at worse, as the critics say, just the right aura of respectability to mask misdemeanours or allegations thereof and silence murmurs of radical or even Leftist disapproval. Or, maybe, a new way of assuaging one's guilt conscience and "doing one's bit for society" with a few accidental rewards expected on the way -- like social approval, and of course, rich dividends in the market? CSR's appeal to government and common man alike lies in its ability to compel corporates to give something back to society. Corporates might understandably have chosen to read more into it. The new CSR norms of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, which entails companies to mandatorily shell out at least 2 per cent of their three-year average annual profit towards CSR or social welfare activities, forces one to think on these lines. As per the new CSR norms, companies with net worth of at least Rs 500 crore or minimum turnover of Rs ...

How progressive is BJP's election manifesto in foreign, nuclear, and defence policies? 7.4.2014 DNA: India
The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) long-awaited manifesto was finally released on Monday as the first phase of polls for the 2014 general elections opened in India’s northeast. Though delayed, the BJP’s guiding document has revealed itself to be quite impressive in terms of new thinking and foci of the party. Moving beyond staid 20th century mantras, the BJP promises to explore the implementation of carbon credits, green technology, and participate in international efforts to reduce global warming. Overzealous analysts need to be reminded at times that a manifesto is not a policy document but a declaration of guiding principles; a manifesto does not usually dwell on intricate field-specific details but states broad outlines of a vision. To expect more is not just foolish but a failure to understand the medium and platform. Nuclear Policy The BJP’s manifesto declares that the party’s government will pursue nuclear power as a part of India’s energy mix. In conjunction with the section on environmental ...
