Corporate Social Responsibility has become an integral part of businesses in today’s world, thanks to several factors. However, the fact also remains that the implementation of CSR initiatives requires extensive research and planning, coupled with creative, dedicated, focused and innovative implementation processes. GAIL and HPCL Projects are a fine example of this.

GAIL aims to improve & enhance quality of education for underprivileged kids in rural areas, through innovative measures.
