Mahindra and Mahindra CSR Activities

Mahindra and Mahindra CSR Activities

The Mahindra group is a pioneer in the tractor and utility vehicles space. They are a US $17.8 billion worldwide organization. Celebrated for their tough and solid autos, the Mahindra group today stands as a diversified conglomerate with many businesses in various sectors. While all Mahindra companies are well known for their CSR activities in their respective fields, in 2014, Mahindra Group brought all its CSR activities under a single umbrella- Rise for Good.

So let us have a look at the various projects the Mahindra Group businesses have undertaken under the aegis of “Rise for Good”.

Mahindra & Mahindra CSR

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd is the car manufacturing arm of the group of companies. They are the world’s biggest tractor brand by volume, India’s biggest utility vehicle producer, and a few of their organizations appreciate administration positions in the ventures in which they work. They stay focused on putting resources into innovation, developing their worldwide nearness and keeping up their initiative position. They have been India’s No.1 UV and Tractor creators for quite a while now. 

Mahindra & Mahindra’s CSR chamber comprises high ranking members of their CSR committee. These members are responsible for assessing and affirming CSR (explicitly, altruistic) ventures that might be presented by NGOs and other not-revenue driven associations too.

A significant rule that this board follows is stressing on quality of work done over the amount and, thus, it always surveys the advancement of all CSR ventures. To do this, it has the power to coordinate the CSR office or an outsider free office to complete the necessary effect investigation. This chamber likewise administers the use of 1 per cent of the complete 2 per cent obligatory spend on CSR; the parity is overseen by different gathering organizations. 

A different manageability committee supports activities on the maintainability front, concentrating on condition, social and administration (ESG) parameters.

Tech Mahindra CSR

Tech Mahindra’s social exercises are done by Tech Mahindra Foundation (TMF)— its corporate social obligation (CSR) arm. The Foundation was set up in 2007, as a Section 25 Company (alluded to as a Section 8 Company in the Companies Act, 2013). From that point forward, it has worked eagerly towards the vision of ‘Engaging through Education’, building up itself as a foundation that implements CSR projects to form social associations with the smart cities. Their long – term projects are run in two modes — straightforwardly actualized through the Foundation and with accomplice associations. 

Areas of focus of the Tech Mahindra Foundation


Corporate volunteering is at the core of Tech Mahindra Foundation’s ethos. Representatives volunteer in different projects and add to driving positive change by taking part in exercises, for example, blood gift, tree ranch, Swachhata Hi Seva, bike rallies, paint the divider, card making, scratchpad gift alongside directing instructional meetings and activation drives for SMART understudies. 

In FY2019 alone, more than 91,000 employees have volunteered for various causes and at various organizations across India.

5 Rejuvenating 3 Municipal Gardens in Mumbai

With the aim to beautify urban spaces and to make India’s business capital greener, the Mahindra Group took upon rejuvenating three landmark civic gardens in Mumbai. The Shivaji Garden (close to Gateway of India) is respected for its excellent design and prospering plants and blossoms. Remodelled at an expense of Rs. 6 Lakhs, it presently has pathways for walkers, with new stretches covered by flowers.

The Shivaji Garden was earlier frequented by hostile anti-social elements. However, post-beautification, the part has been converged with the nursery, which has kept such anti-social elements at bay and made the area safer for all. Care has been taken to keep the nursery in a flawless condition and visiting hours are set up, encouraging support work. 

The Traffic Island Garden (near the Regal Cinema) has been redesigned by the Mahindra Group at the expense of Rs. 1 Lakh. New light posts and an assortment of plants were planted and the wellspring was restored to its previous brilliance. The nursery today adds to the scenery and provides relief for the eye in this swarming, traffic-blocked circle. 

The third nursery is situated at the intersection of Madame Cama Road, toward the south of Oval Maidan. The rejuvenation was carried out at an expense of Rs. 1.5 Lakhs and a nursery was added to it. 

6 Lessening CO2 Emissions: Developing Bijlee

The Bijlee is inventive, home developed, first-of-its-sort electric three-wheeler. It was  India’s first attempt at creating a battery worked vehicle. The Bijlee is an imaginative “Kind to Man” innovation, which was developed via Mahindra & Mahindra’s exchange fuel program.

It is a zero outflow electrically fueled vehicle that keeps running on a 72 volts DC engine. The Bijlee‟s 12 batteries enable the client to do 80 km at a speed of 35 km/hour. With a substitution battery on board, the vehicle can run without stress for almost 120 kms. The electric vehicle has roomy insides, with abundant space for a whole family. It has no motor, gearbox radiator and no silencer, which makes it a clamour free vehicle. 

Bijlee gives quality yield without stifling the earth and is supported by governments and foundations, which lay the spotlight on preserving the earth. 10 Mahindra Bijlees were given over to clients in 2006 by the Chief Minister of Pondicherry.

This has enabled the Mahindra Group to act with greater efficiency, and also manage and track their CSR activities better.
