Why is social responsibility at a low pitch in India? ethics
The assumption in the question that levels social responsibility in India is at low pitch as compared to international practices does not appear to be valid. In addition the implied assumption fails to give any clue to what is considered to be adequate level of social responsibility.
The performance of Indian companies in terms of social responsibility may appear to be low as compared to those in some developed because of the general lower standard of living that people here can afford. Adequacy of what a company does to meet its social responsibility must be viewed in relation to its resources. I believe the i general the Indian businessmen and companies are in general do have high ethical standards and voluntarily spend considerable efforts and resources towards social causes.
