CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) AND TRIBAL DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA
Souren Bhattacharya, Subhasree Pal , Dr. Parimal Sarkar
India is home to the worlds second-largest tribal agglomeration. In the post-independence period, the Indian government placed a premium on rapid industrialization to boost economic growth and employments. To provide the industry with raw materials, extensive mineral, oil, and gas extraction began. Many private ventures are promoted to boost revenue, employment, and foreign currency reserves. However, what became of the indigenous people who were dispossessed in the name of progress and who lived in and around mines, gas fields, and oil fields? They became environmental expatriates as a result of their eviction. Corporate juggernauts turned these tribal people into aliens in their land. What role should the corporate sector play in ensuring the genuine growth of these misfortunate people? The purpose of this descriptive, qualitative study is to revisit CSR for tribal development and to propose appropriate methods to make it more humane.
