MetadataShow full item record
The study provides the level of corporate social responsibility disclosure of the Indian banking sector. Corporate citizenship is the business strategy that shapes the values underpinning a company's mission and the choices made each day by its executives, managers and employees as they engage with society. The bank in the society plays not an important role in any country but also behave a good citizen. Within this framework we investigated 38 banks listed on the Mumbai Stock Exchange and considered only annual report for the year 2002-03. The result shows that Indian banks are disclosing considerable amount of social information in the annual reports. The study also reveals that almost 90 per cent of sample banks disclose human resource development, staff training and social/community services information. The study at least has given a scenario of the position of corporate social responsibility in Indian and especially in banking sector which is practicing as a voluntarily and acted as corporate citizen. However, more in-depth study is needed to the financial sector in the developing countries in order to understand the status of the corporate social responsibility in the world as a whole.
