Corporate Social Responsibility, also known as CSR, is a policy adopted by a company/organization wherein it takes the onus of doing their bit for the society and the environment by implementing various plans and programmes.One such illustrious organization that has always been at the forefront of fulfilling its corporate social responsibility is the Ansal API Group by virtue of its Chairman, Sushil Ansal and Vice Chairman and MD, Pranav Ansal.

The CSR initiatives of the Ansal Group date back to 1976, when The Chiranjiv Charitable Trust was established under the chairmanship of Sushil Ansal for imparting quality education to as many students as possible. Today, more than 6000 students under this trust are receiving the priceless asset- education through several schools that have been set up in Palam Vihar and Sushant Lok in Gurgaon. Most of the schools have been established in the Ansal API Group’s colonies.
