Trustee of the Gandhi Peace foundation, Tushar Gandhi has advised corporates to step beyond their comfort level in their corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.  Stating that making CSR a statutory obligation is bad in nature, Mr. Gandhi said visible difference in the society can be brought only after companies step beyond their comfort zones. 

Recalling his great grandfather Mahatma Gandhi’s words, he said that one must do charity till it pinches and that is benevolence. He was speaking at a CII seminar in Mumbai on Monday on the topic ARISE: Accountability, Reforms, Innovation, Sustainability and Employment. It is mandatory for companies to earmark 2 percent of their profits for spending on corporate social responsibility activities. 

Mr. Gandhi said disparity in development can be addressed when profit making companies decide to take responsibility to work for change.
