Registration open for IICA Certificate Programme in CSR (ICP-CSR) at Omeo Kumar Das Institute of Social Change and Development, Guwahati.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an emerging area in policy interventions mandating a commitment from the business communities towards collective goods. In the light of the new CSR mandate in the Companies Act 2013, it is felt that CSR has a big role to play in social development. The CSR Cell at the Institute has been created with a vision of playing a major role in providing professional support in all matters relating to CSR with reference to Northeast region of India.
Even before the enactment of Companies Act of 2013, the Institute was engaged in the Training of CSR Professionals of the Public Sector Undertakings operating in the northeast region of India in 2011. As a follow-up, the Institute signed an agreement with North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO) in 2012 for providing technical support in carrying out CSR activities of the Corporation for five years.
Accordingly, the Institute carried out the Baseline Survey for identifying key areas of CSR intervention in the operational areas of the Corporation. The Institute is also presently engaged in process documentation and monitoring of CSR activities of the Corporation as well as interim process evaluation of the various CSR schemes and projects undertaken so far as per the Baseline conducted by the Institute.
In October 2013, the Institute has signed a MoU with the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) for conducting the IICA Certificate Programme in CSR (ICP-CSR) as one of its partner organisations. The ICP-CSR is a 9 month programme for developing trained and certified CSR professionals in the country.
