Dear Esteemed Professional Colleague,
Various provisions of the Companies (Corporate Social Responsibility Policy) Rules 2014 require the monitoring and reporting mechanism for CSR activities. Hence, monitoring of CSR activities and its reporting is mandatory as per the Companies (Company Social Responsibility Policy) Rules 2014. Also, it is the responsibility of the Company (through CSR Committee) to monitor the funds of the Company which are to be utilized as per the CSR Policy of the Company.
