Ministry of Corporate Affairs designing an e-form under MCA-21 to enable the Corporates to file their Corporate Social Responsibility report on the portal of the Ministry.
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs had released voluntary guidelines on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) during the ‘India Corporate Week’ organized in December last year. A number of corporates have stated that they would like to have an effective framework for reporting their responsible business practices. Keeping in view this feedback from the Corporate Sector, Shri R. Bandyopadhyay, Secretary, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, stated here today that the Ministry is in the process of designing an e-form under MCA-21 which will enable the corporates to file their CSR report on the portal of the Ministry. The availability of these reports at a single place will enable the Ministry to take policy decisions on this front and also to showcase the responsible business practices of Indian Corporate Sector to the whole world.
