Abstract

This paper mentions the comparative study of various CSR activities of a few of the top companies in India and their fight against poverty in the country. This research is based on how CSR can be used to eliminate poverty, what the scope of the project is, and the contribution of the companies in developing the poor local communities. The aim of this study is to start to fill the gap in our understanding of how, when and through what means the business can help to reduce poverty while recognizing the equally powerful potential of the business community to exacerbate poverty. Taking particular CSR initiatives as a starting point, we seek to look at the broader developmental footprint of business-as-usual strategies, as well as those which fall under the banner of CSR, to gain a fuller picture of how business is implicated in the development process. This paper focuses on the type and nature of the CSR activities of MNCs in their attempt to eliminate poverty.
