India is currently among the top three fastest growing economies of the world. As a natural corollary India’s energy needs too are fast expanding with its increased industrialization and capacity addition in Power generation. This is where ‘Coal’ steps in. In India coal is the critical input for major infrastructure industries like Power, Steel and Cement.
- Coal is the most dominant energy source in India’s energy scenario.
- Coal meets around 52% of primary commercial energy needs in India against 29% the world over.
- Around 66% of India’s power generation is coal based.
- India is the 3rd largest coal producing country in the world after China and USA.
Coal India Limited (CIL) as an organized state owned coal mining corporate came into being in November 1975 with the government taking over private coal mines. With a modest production of 79 Million Tonnes (MTs) at the year of its inception CIL today is the single largest coal producer in the world. Operating through 81 mining areas CIL is an apex body with 7 wholly owned coal producing subsidiaries and 1 mine planning and consultancy company spread over 8 provincial states of India. CIL also fully owns a mining company in Mozambique christened as ‘Coal India Africana Limitada’. CIL also manages 200 other establishments like workshops, hospitals etc. Further, it also owns 26 technical & management training institutes and 102 Vocational Training Institutes Centres. Indian Institute of Coal Management (IICM) as a state-of-the-art Management Training ‘Centre of Excellence’ – the largest Corporate Training Institute in India – operates under CIL and conducts multi disciplinary management development programmes.
CIL having fulfilled the financial and other prerequisites was granted the Maharatna recognition in April 2011. It is a privileged status conferred by Government of India to select state owned enterprises in order to empower them to expand their operations and emerge as global giants. So far, the select club has only five members out of 217 Central Public Sector Enterprises in the country.
With corporate India now geared up to spend up to 2% of their average net profits over the last 3 years for socially responsible activities there is a need for credibility and due diligence of the NGOs. As per a recent analysis done by BSE, there are 1,294 companies listed on its exchange that are required to spend nearly Rs.7,800 crores on CSR activities in the FY’16.
With about 20 lakh NGOs registered in India there is considerable confusion among corporates on their legitimacy and credibility. Corporates, especially the small and medium ones need a trusted marketplace or intermediary to be able to identify and partner with a NGO for their CSR compliance.
Sammaan is a first of its kind initiative in the world which enables companies to undertake effective CSR activities by connecting them to non-profit and non-government agencies that have legitimate records.
Sammaan brings together BSE’s exchange capabilities along with Confederation of Indian Industry’s (CII’s) strong industry connect and Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs’s (IICA’s) knowledge expertise to enable effective CSR compliance.

ABOUT COGNIZANT FOUNDATION
At Cognizant, we firmly believe that corporate actions play a very important role in creating a climate of positive opinion and that giving back to the Society is not only imperative to the company’s growth, but also an earnest reflection of the values it stands for.
To be a model social organisation that enables and facilitates the under-privileged sections of the society to access quality education, healthcare and livelihood opportunities
- To work towards fulfilling the education, healthcare and livelihood needs of the under-privileged sections of the society
- To provide financial and technical support to institutions for improving the quality of education, livelihood and healthcare
- To design and implement programs aimed at quality improvements in education, livelihood and access to healthcare
The major issues affecting each strata of education in India are quality and relevance. Adequate infrastructure facilities, relevant curriculum and pedagogy, quality teachers and financial aid for students are some of the pressing needs of India’s education sector.
Cognizant Foundation has been striving to answer some of these issues through its programmes and projects in schools to foster computer and science education through programmes that encourage innovative teaching solutions. Through its scholarship programme Cognizant Foundation supports meritorious students belonging to economically weaker sections of the society to pursue their higher education.
Over the years, there has been a tremendous improvement in the quality of healthcare services in India. However, in spite of widespread efforts to reach healthcare amenities to every strata of society, access to affordable healthcare still remains a distant dream to the underprivileged in the rural and urban areas.
Cognizant Foundation’s efforts in this area have therefore been directed towards upgrading and augmenting the facilities of healthcare institutions who offer low cost, high quality healthcare facilities to the rural and urban poor.
One of India’s critical developmental needs is the generation of productive and gainful employment to the growing population of rural youth. It is in this context that the country is witnessing multi-pronged initiatives to train the rural and semi-urban youth in relevant trades that will lead to their gainful employment.
Livelihood is a recent but fast growing focus area for Cognizant Foundation. The Foundation has been supporting several initiatives that focus on training youth from the poorer sections of the society with livelihood skills and placement opportunities and enabling them to participate in the country’s economic progress.

About National CSR Hub, Tata Institute of Social Sciences
In the wake of rapid globalization and pressing ecological issues, the perception towards the role of corporate in the broader social paradigm is undergoing a sea change.
In the recent years, society and the state have put forward an expectation before public sector corporate to integrate the social responsibility aspects in their business persuasion. This scenario not only affects large scale public sector undertakings, but also includes firms of small scale.
The underlying assumption that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is one way through which companies can demonstrate their commitments towards being socially responsible. In fact, CSR as an integral aspect of corporate has double edge effect in terms of creating goodwill to the company and acting as a social and economic intervention to bring about large scale change in the life of people from different walks.
It is in this context, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai and Department of Public Enterprises (DPE), Government of India have come to realize that there is a need to have centralized system where core functions of CSR including learning and knowledge dissemination take place.
As a result, TISS, a pioneer educational institution in social sciences with decades of experience in teaching, research, publications, and field interventions (for more information visit www.tiss.edu) has come forward to host National CSR Hub. This hub is coordinated at the School of Management and Labour Studies (SMLS) at TISS. The hub carries out activities in a partnership mode i.e. TISS, civil society organizations, and the concerned PSEs.
Broadly, core functions of CSR Hub at TISS include inter alia Research, Publication and knowledge dissemination, Capacity Building, and Advocacy. A dedicated team of faculties and research associates at TISS work in collaboration with DPE, and the concerned Public Enterprise will guide the PSE’s in implementation.
Kindly go through the strategy paper and latest revised guidelines on Corporate Social Responsibility for PSE’s by DPE which is available in the website for guidance. Over a period of time, it is envisioned that the CSR Hub would work with many PSE’s and endeavor to reach out across India.
National Foundation for Corporate Social Responsibility (NFCSR)Businesses need to be profitable, but their use of natural resources and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of the common man is also critical to long-term survival and growth. Sustainability of business includes not merely economic sustainability in the narrow sense of the term but also social and environmental sustainability with the confluence of human, financial, social and ecological capital. It is inappropriate to conduct market activity that concentrates wealth without empowering the poor and the deprived. The NFCSR was established at IICA in 2012 to be the apex national institution that aims to build an enabling environment for the corporate sector to work in partnership with the government, non government and civil society organisations for effective contribution towards sustainable growth and development. It has been provided an initial corpus fund by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, enabling India to take a leadership position in the area of CSR. In this regard, crosscutting CSR research, training, advisory and consulting services are pertinent. This not only fulfils the IICA mandate for the National Foundation on Corporate Social Responsibility (NFCSR) to be the CSR enabler, but also to evolve as the apex national level institution that can effectively enable and inform the implementation of the CSR laws and parameters of the country. In order to fulfil this mandate, the NFCSR offers the following facilitation and Services:
- Learning& Development (People)
- – CSR Training Services
- – BSE IICA CSR Index
- Metadata On CSR: (Information)
- CSR Implementing Agency Hub (Partners)
- Documentation, Assessment & Evaluation, Advocacy & Dissemination & Research(Projects & Implementation)
