                        communities, cultures, societies and environments in which they operate. The fundamentals of CSR rest on the fact that not only public

                        policy but even corporates should be responsible enough to address social issues. Thus companies should deal with the challenges and  

                        issues looked after to a certain extent by the states. The section 135 of the companies act defines the type of companies which will be
