IndianOil has been actively engaged in a gamut of social welfare/upliftment activities across the nation, in addition to reaching essential fuels viz. Kerosene, LPG, Petrol, Diesel, etc. to the nook and corner of the country. IndianOil’s key Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) thrust areas include 'Safe drinking water and protection of water resources', 'Healthcare and sanitation', 'Education and employment-enhancing vocational skills', 'Empowerment of women and socially/economically backward groups', etc. IndianOil has a long standing CSR legacy, which started much before the CSR legislation (Companies Act, 2013) came into force in 2014-15. The CSR projects of IndianOil are undertaken mostly for improving the quality of life in various communities, which invariably include marginalized / underprivileged sections of the society, viz. schedule caste, schedule tribe, other backward caste, physically handicapped. etc. With the Pan-India presence, IndianOil undertakes CSR activities across the country, from Leh in J&K in the North, to the North Eastern States, to the aspirational/ backward districts/ naxal affected areas, to Gujarat in the West and Tamil Nadu/Kerala in the South. For the year 2018-19, entire CSR budget allocation of Rs. 490.60 crore was spent, thereby achieving 100% budget utilization.
