A. CSR Policy Philosophy

ARG GROUP not only makes the dreams comes true for 3 basic needs of the human being i.e. 'Roti' 'Kapda' Aur 'Makan' but also equally look for their social responsibility. Nuclear family is major concern now a day. The only son or daughter may not accompany his/her parents at the time when they really need him. There may be several reasons for the same. Jobs or business need may be some of them. Parents may or may not live with their kids due to their own reasons. Transfer in jobs or the working place of their kids may not confine themselves comfortable to live with.

As a responsible corporate citizen, we contribute for social, educational and environmental causes on a regular basis.

We firmly believe that an organization must maintain highest standards of corporate behavior towards its investors, stakeholders, employees and societies in which it operates. Constitution of a Corporate Social Responsibility Committee and formulation of a Corporate Social Responsibility Policy has become mandatory under the new Companies Act, 2013. Accordingly, the Company has formulated its’ CSR Policy which guides its sustained efforts for carrying and supporting socially useful programs.
