CSR Requirements as per Companies Act, 2013
As you are aware, for the first time in the world, India as a country introduced a statutory requirement for the corporate sector to discharge their social responsibility, through the Companies Act, 2013. The mandate became effective from April 1, 2014. Thus the previous financial year 2014-15 was the first year of operation of mandatory CSR norms. With this first CSR-Alert we attempt to disseminate the provisions of the CSR norms to assist you in compliance of the same. 
The corporate social responsibility (CSR) spending is applicable to following categories of companies:
a.    Companies with net worth of Rs. 500 crore or more;
b.    Companies having a turnover of Rs. 1,000 crore or more;
c.    Companies having a net profit of Rs. 5 crore or more.
The government has set out specific guidelines on how CSR activities should be handled, which are:
·         The CSR activities need to be implemented by a CSR Committee which should have an independent director.
