Title:- Corporate Social Responsibility: Impact of Globalization in India
Globalization is a free economy concept, which enables local manufacturers to compete at international level, which usually helps them to increase their area of transaction. But if we look into the Indian scenario, this has an adverse impact, as most of our production is done by farmers or local manufacturers, which are not as equipped as the multi-national giants outside India. This restrains them from competing in the international commodity market which subsequently lead us to cases like death of farmers due to starvation, suicide and provide India with the disability of poverty and unemployment. The paper intends from Indian corporate giants to perform their corporate social responsibility towards poor people, by promoting them and by providing them sufficient means so that they can also compete with their competitors outside India and be able to co-op with the existing system of globalization. Key words: Globalization, Poor People, Corporate Social Responsibility, International Commodity Market, Local Manufacturers
