India CSR Report 2019: Trends and Prospects of CSR, commissioned by Gujarat CSR Authority, examines the developments in the adoption of CSR practices in India and documents the changes over the last four years since the inception of the CSR mandate. A data-based assessment of geographical and thematic distribution of CSR projects, the book highlights how corporates have made allocation decisions.

It critically analyses the response of companies, policy aspects, and implementation modalities. Challenges from policy, operations, and community response have been explained and the expectations of implementing agencies taken on board. A review of developments in the CSR space in Gujarat has been carried out and five interesting cases that project institutional and thematic uniqueness have been presented. This is a must-read for all CSR practitioners.
