CSR, Indian companies, Bank


In this paper, selected ten Indian banks’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities were analyzed, and their performance was ranked on the basis of 10 parameters. Data were collected and studied on websites, in annual reports and sustainability CSR reports from all selected banks. State Bank of India and Bank of Baroda are the top performers among the public-sector banks, while ICICI Bank is the top performer among the private-sector banks. CSR activities are mostly carried out in the fields of education, community welfare, and rural development in the case of public sector banks. On the other hand, banks in the private sector focus more on activities relating to community welfare , education and rural development.
