In developed countries, a significant amount of research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) has taken. Since the concept of CSR has evolved in developed countries, the organisations in these countries were the earliest to be aware of the CSR relevance to sustainable development. Nowadays CSR has gained significance for organization globally. On the other hand, there needs to be more research on CSR in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), especially in India. Literature lags behind the social reality and diversity, specifically in the case of CSR in SMEs.
