For several socio – political reasons, a sizeable section of such societies have accusation of violation of basic rights of the people by the business professionals which every human being would never cherish. In response to this reality the Company Act 2013 under section 135 provides that Board of every company referred to in section 135(1) shall ensure that the company spends in every financial year at least 2% of average net profit of preceding 3 financial years in pursuance of CSR policy.
