Read the passage given below and answer the following questions as per the understanding of the passage (Qu. Nos. 71 to 75)

The post liberalized and globalized Indian economy is witnessing shrinking role of state and growing role of Corporate and Business in overall development of country. Corporate with their wider reach, professionalism, innovation and wealth have the ability to influence the pace of growth and development. In recent survey it was found that the public expectations from corporate and business are growing. Indians feel that business sector must play a wider and more expansive societal role. In addition to providing good quality products at reasonable prices, companies should strive to make their operations environmentally sound, adhere to high labour standards, reduce human rights abuses and mitigate poverty.

Corporate Social responsibility in the past few decades has intrigued not only the scholars but the practioners as well. It is essentially a concept whereby companies decide voluntarily to contribute to a better society and a cleaner environment. Companies consider themselves as an integral part of the society and act in a socially responsible way. Till very recently it was viewed as philanthropic activity indulged into only when the firms were in jeopardy. But it is now viewed to be inclusive, broad and diverse. CSR is now viewed as integral part of business strategy to minimize the business risks linked to uncertainty.

Most of the multinational Corporates have their CSR wing and department exclusively dedicated for doing community development and CSR activities directly or indirectly in the vicinity of their operations. They recruit professionals from social work, rural development and other developmental fields to undertake and manage the CSR activities of company. It is observed that companies whose operations directly impact the nature like mining, manufacturing, power generations etc. have CSR wing quite active to tackle the grievances of nearby population and engage the stakeholders. In green field projects, we have seen corporate giant and Govt. struggling hard to get the land acquisitions and Resettlement and Rehabilitation (R & R) issues solved, here also CSR professionals are in great demand.

This is hard to clarify due to the diverse roles and range of disciplines involved. Though the major skills required for successful CSR Professional are business skills, people skills and technical skills. From above three skills, following six core competencies are listed for managers involved with CSR in organizations viz. Understanding society, building capacity, Questioning business as usual, stakeholder relations, strategic view, and harnessing diversity.
