Speaking in a seminar on “Relevance of CSR: PSE Perspective” organised by Delhi Management Association (DMA), SCOPE Director General U D Choubey, strongly advocated for accountability check of NGOs who are allocated funds for CSR from public sector enterprises. He also emphasised need of social audit in all such cases.
Choubey highlighted that public sector enterprises have accepted 2 per cent mandatory provisions of CSR in both letter and spirit. They have Board approved policy and system oriented approach towards CSR. Funds are allocated through Board Sub-committees.
Baseline survey identifying the needs of the people, evaluating and selection of implementing agencies, supervision and monitoring are made through a robust mechanism to ensure that the benefit reaches at the end point.
Some of the public sector enterprises have made trust and are in better position to implement CSR funds, he added.
