Indian Social Audit

Shobha Pandey

Abstract :

Organisations may be classified as profit–seeking organisations and non–profit–seeking organisations. Non–profitseeking organisations are operated with a view to provide facilities to the public at large. Profit–seeking organisations, on the other hand, are operated to earn profit. However non–profit–seeking organisations have society–oriented activities of one kind or another. Every concern connected with the society and his activities directly or indirectly affect the society. Public concern for the ways in which organisations fulfil their social responsibilities has created a tremendous pressure for social audits. Not only this, the executives of big organisations themselves have been attracted to the concept of social audit as a possible means of satisfying themselves and the public that their organisations are performing what they ought to be performing in the social area. A social audit encompasses an assessment of what an activity or a particular operation contributes to society and what it takes from society. It does not necessarily suggest that a concern should invest more money in social programmes; it may suggest investing less in social assets.
