      Corporate Social Responsibility
       
      A cornerstone of AIS’s vision is to be a socially
      conscious business and it has always displayed
      the highest standards of corporate citizenry.
      Apart from continuously fulfilling all its regulatory
      requirements related to the society at large
      across all the business units, the Company has
      a well structured Corporate Social Responsibility
      (CSR) programme that specifically focuses on
      communities in the vicinity of two of its major plants
      in Bawal (Haryana) and Roorkee (Uttarakhand).

      The initiatives are focused on education, health,
      empowerment and livelihood development and are
      conducted under the company’s platform called the
      ‘Integrated Community Development Programme
      (ICDP)’. The CSR initiatives proposed under the
      various schemes are regularly administered,
      monitored and executed by a leading Delhi based
      NGO named ‘Youthreach’.
