They followed their own socio-economic models, developing into nation-states, interacted and contested each otherin the economic and other fields. India, originally The JambuDweep, and its economyis once more is on the rise, however, the general youth is still confused as to ‘WhoWe Are?’, and there are enough to fish in the troubled-waters. We cannot aspire tosell the ‘Indian Civilization’ to empty stomachs, neither can we aspire to havegraduates who are virtually un-employable. Can we arrive at a plausible solution to achieve this synergy?
India of yesteryears was an economic giant whilst being a ‘Village Based Economy’. The historical perspective suggests that the Rural Populace had both the options, of migrating to bigger cities or to transport its products to markets which included urban, international and the village itself. This model brought ‘Sampoornta’ and ‘Samriddi’, i.e. ‘Wholesome-Fullness’ and ‘Economic Well-Being’ to our ancestors without the need to change their habitat. Keeping all this in mind and especially when we know that India in its present strength is the youngest nation in the world, our lack of responsibility towards our mother land and its people can prove fatal to our generations to come.
If we see the whole creation in its entirety, we will find that we all cannot move an inch without each other’s support. As citizens, we all knows our “Rights” however as Humans we all need to understand our “Responsibilities”. Responsibility is not an Act, it’s our attitude of our Ability to Respond to any given situation. Success may or may not come however, we all are responsible for our actions and inactions.
We at Madhav KRG Group have planned our “Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR) initiatives not merely as complying the provisions of law but as our moral, ethical and spiritual responsibility in “Giving Back to Society”. That is motto and Vision as well.
The company’s long-term CSR objective is to improve the quality of life of the communities through developing individual’s Skills, Education and Awareness (SEA). The whole idea of “SEA” is enabling people both in ‘Sampoornta’ and ‘Samriddi’, i.e. ‘Wholesome-Fullness’ and ‘Economic Well-Being’. For that company shall allocate at least 2% of its average net profits before taxes of the preceding three years, towards CSR activities to sustain and improve a healthy and prosperous environment and to improve the quality of life of the communities it serves.
The company may also utilize its products and services as suitable for its CSR activities. Any surpluses arising out of CSR projects or programmes or activities shall be re-deployed back into CSR activities and will not form a part of the business profits of the company. The company shall positively impact and influence its employees and partners in fostering a sense of social commitment for their stakeholders.
Madhav KRG Group focus areas for developmental activities will be in urban as well as rural areas in the state of Punjab where it is located at present. The company may also support initiatives in other geographies, as approved by the CSR Committee of the Board, from time to time. While we will ensure that all communities benefit from our CSR initiatives and we would focus on those groups that are socially and economically marginalized. Whilst a large part of the CSR efforts of Madhav KRG Group will be implemented by an in-house CSR department and the company will also partner with credible organizations – individually or as a consortium – to design, fund, implement and review projects. Partner agencies will be selected based on well-defined selection criteria.

Under this head various activities will be planned so that despite having so much disparities/diversities still we all can exists together. We all may differ in colour, caste, religion, gender and so many things, still having respect for all and follow our culture. It’s about deepening our roots and broadening our visions where we can see ONE in all and ALL in one.
Under this head various initiatives will be taken where in masses are made aware that the core of being humans is its value system. It’s easy to become a parent and give some trainings or teach some skills for livelihood but kindling values like Love, Compassion, Peace is of prime importance. Awareness is needed what of type of world we want to leave behind for our generation next. A world having all comforts but is full of pollution, corruption and violence is not desirable by any human. Prioritizing Values over material comforts is need of the hour.
