The ancient Vedic literature written around 600 B.C. mentions about four Vedas Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda, and Atharvaveda which are considered as the root of Dharma. Social responsibility is a manifestation of dharma, the duty of human beings towards society.
Atharva Veda says that one should procure wealth with one hundred hands and distribute it with one thousand hands. The Yajurveda says that enjoy riches with detachment, do not cling to them because the riches belong to the public, they are not yours alone.
In the Rig Veda, there is also a mention of the need for the wealthy to plant trees and build tanks for the community as it would bring them glory in life and beyond.
Let us walk together, Let us talk together, Let our heart vibrate together”
– Rig Veda.
Thus the CSR practices are essentially rooted in the Indian value system and references can be traced to the ancient Hindu scripture.

Mr. Ashok Chhajer(Chairman and Managing Director – Arihant Superstructures Ltd) said that government has done a good role to mandate CSR in corporate companies he said very interesting point that CSR should not be taken as branding or advertising for the corporates. Instead it must inspire us from within to help and serve the poor by providing them basic necessity and fulfilling our duties. He also said that only if we really want to do the CSR activity will it really work otherwise it will be just an expense for the corporates. He explained the importance of NGO with nice phrase stating “The doer will not get that much of blessing as much as the person who is making him do the work will get.
Our objective is to engage in affirmative action towards health, education and surrounding environment which would lead to increase in the country’s human development index (HDI) and sustainable development for the under privileged or the common man of society.
Arihant would like to impact and contribute to the environmental, economic and social development of the communities in which we operate and society at large by series of CSR activities”.
