first_img​The role of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the modern world and the need of time have laid the emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which has subsequently rechristened it as Conscious Social Responsibility and the environment pertaining with it, said Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena.While addressing a capacity crowd of entrepreneurs, designers, weavers, policymakers and other stakeholders in a grand National Trade Conclave named ‘Khadi : From Local to Global’, held under the joint auspices of Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT), the KVIC Chairman said that without including consciousness in CSR, it is a mere contemplation to think about the welfare of the last man left in the society.

Citing the example of CSR funds utilized in restarting of an old Khadi institution at Sewapuri Gandhi Ashram in Varanasi, Saxena said: “We received CSR funds from Rural Electrification Corporation (REC). But, instead of providing a one-time benefit to the people, we revived the glory of the 71-year-old 12-acre Sewapuri Khadi Ashram in Varanasi started under the guidance of Mahatma Gandhi to promote Khadi and provide employment to the spinners and weavers working on the same mission, 26 years after it shut shop. We roped in REC to use its CSR funds in renovating this Khadi unit at the ashram premises, which has given direct employment to now more than 800 people of this area. Not only that, as many as 250 solar charkhas and 80 solar looms – provided by REC has provided direct employment to 400 people. Roping in worker co-operatives to be a part of the initiative, Mumbai-based Lijjat Papad has established a papad-making unit in the center in which 200 local women have been enrolled for the work,” he said, adding, “If the CSR is aimed to maintain the core consciousness of social responsibility, only then it is CSR in the true sense,” he said.

On the other hand, the Commerce and Industries minister Suresh Prabhu, in his video message, also said that the government is committed to promoting Khadi as a global fabric as it has the potential to boost economic growth and to achieve this aim, new designs and styles in Khadi are essential. “There is a huge opportunity for Indian fashion industry in the textile sector, and Khadi needs to create demand,” he said. Corroborating similar views, Ashwani Lohani, Chairman, Railway Board, said there is a need to make Khadi a symbol of national pride. “The railways on a daily basis require four lakh bedrolls and would be willing to partner KVIC in developing a strategy to provide disposable Khadi bedrolls and towels at economical rates,” he said.last_img read more

first_img This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine January 21, 2016 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer best known for making Apple’s i-devices, has offered just north of $5 billion for a takeover of Japan’s Sharp, according to multiple reports.Sharp happens to be one the biggest makers of screens for mobile devices (including Apple’s iPads), but it’s severely struggling and is currently considering an offer of around ¥300 billion ($2.6 billion) from the state-backed Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) fund.Bloomberg has Foxconn’s bid at around ¥600 billion ($5.1 billion) and the Wall Street Journal at about ¥625 billion ($5.3 billion). Crucially, this would also see Foxconn take on Sharp’s considerable debt of more than ¥500 billion, which may give it the edge over the more politically palatable INCJ offer. Another thing that would help is Foxconn’s reported willingness to leave Sharp’s senior management in place. Foxconn has gone for Sharp before, trying to buy a 9.88 percent stake back in 2012, but management control proved a sticking point (as did Sharp’s poor financial performance at the time).If Foxconn succeeds this time round, it would be able to offer customers such as Apple and Xiaomi a key component that they currently need to source elsewhere, often from rivals such as LG and Samsung, but also from Japan Display (in which INCJ holds a controlling stake) and of course Sharp itself.The takeover would be yet another step in the rapid ascendancy of Foxconn, a company that was pretty obscure until not that long ago — if people knew about it at all, it was because of staff suicides in China.These days Foxconn still makes devices for others, but it also makes its own low-cost phones (under the InFocus brand) and has even been getting into the mobile carrier business, buying Taiwanese 4G spectrum licenses and a stake in local operator Asia Pacific Telecom a couple years back. 2 min read Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowlast_img read more
