New Delhi: After the government came up with the stricter measures that included prosecution of corporates that do not fall in line of compliance on CSR mandate, now is the time for awarding those who have contributed wholeheartedly towards CSR. A number of corporates and PSUs got first-ever National CSR awards from the hands of President of India.

The awards were organised at Vigyan Bhavan on Tuesday. Primarily, the awards had three categories, 'Corporate Award for Excellence in CSR', 'CSR in Challenging Circumstances' and 'Contribution to the National Priority Areas'. The President announced that National CSR Awards will be given away on October 2 every year. Apart from the President Kovind, Union Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Anurag Singh Thakur, Secretary, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, industry leaders, Injeti Srinivas, and DG & CEO, IICA, Dr Sameer Sharma were also present at the ceremony.

The President congratulated the companies for building healthy and inclusive societies, sustainable markets, combating corruption and safeguarding the environment. He said that through National CSR Awards companies are being recognised for their contribution to society. While Sitharaman said, "CSR is not merely contribution of funds, it is the corporate contribution towards inclusive societies which matters".
