We believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) is the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives, while at the same time addresses the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders. We are cognizant of our responsibilities towards building a society which provides equal access to opportunities and negates disparities. The Company is a corporate citizen, with resources at its command and benefits which it derives from operating in society, and therefore it owes a solemn duty to the less fortunate and under-privileged members of the society. The Company will continue to pursue fund and non-fund based activities to discharge its CSR and play the role of a responsible and responsive corporate citizen.
