CEC S Y Qureshi came down heavily on corporate India regarding CSR, saying that “CSR is not charity but a question of your very survival”.

“We need a Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates to teach our corporates on the need for CSR. What you do is not CSR but corporate social compulsion,” Qureshi told a meet on CSR organised by Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“When it comes to charity, you corporates do not follow its basic principle (‘the left hand should not know what the right hand is doing’). On the contrary, you want huge publicity even if you build a public toilet,” the CEC said.
