Recently government of India has implemented new CSR regulation. The Companies Act of 1956 was repealed and the Companies Act of 2013 was enacted in its place. Section 135 of the companies Act of 2013, a new section of the new act, set certain provisions on corporate social responsibility for entities doing business in India, which resulted in a significant change in the creation, administration, and governance of companies. India has been the first country among all other nations to mandate the requirement to engage in CSR activities and to disclose it under the Companies Act of 2013.
