Ms. Meeta Sengupta is of the opinion that the CSR mandate has faced much debate among India Inc. as an extra tax on corporates, incurring additional administrative burden and a rather indirect way to direct corporate behaviour. However, there was little debate on the inclusion of education within the purview of the mandate as the gap between need and national spend in education (3.9 percent of India’s Gross Domestic Product – GDP, though the ask was for at least 6 percent) was evident even to the most cursory observer.

meetasenguptapicSo, her chapter titled ‘Impact of CSR on Education Sector’ seeks to recognise the need for CSR contribution to education in India, understand the history of education and philanthropy existing in India, the CSR spend on education, the impact of the CSR legislation on it, the three large trends that supported PROFESSIONALISING of CSR IN EDUCATION and role of CSR in education. The keywords of the chapter are: CSR Funding; Professional Monitoring; Education Infrastructure; Educational Capacity Building; Funding Learner Skills; Education Funding; and Innovation Funding.
