The present study is an attempt to investigate the recent trends in impact assessment of CSR projects undertaken by companies in the backdrop of the amendment of the Companies (CSR Policy) Rules, 2014 which mandates companies, satisfying certain eligibility criteria, to initiate impact assessment by independent external agencies. Based on the sample of BSE SENSEX companies, the study brings out some interesting insights such as the nature of projects, nature of assessing agencies, magnitude of expenditure, methodology and framework adopted for the assessment and concludes that Indian corporate sector can be immensely benefited by this exercise which aims to improve the transparency and accountability of companies undertaking the CSR initiatives.
