Rallis continuously endeavours to improve the quality of people's lives through long-term stakeholder value creation. We mainly focus on empowering rural communities through targeted initiatives that facilitate access to water, livelihood opportunities, healthcare, and sanitation. Also, through employee volunteering programmes, we ensure our employees' contribution towards our CSR objectives.

Our initiatives are targeted explicitly towards farmers and people from historically disadvantaged communities located in specific clusters across the neighbourhood of our manufacturing plants and our business regions. An in-house CSR team designs, executes, and implements our CSR interventions after extensive consultations with beneficiaries, NGOs, and other community partners.

Our interventions are aligned with the Tata Group's focus initiatives. A major component of our CSR thrust is the Tata Affirmative Action programme (TAAP), which attempts to address the prevailing social inequities in India by encouraging positive discrimination for the people hailing from India's scheduled castes and scheduled tribes (SC/ST).

Please access Rallis' CSR policy, framed in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 here.

Rallis follows the Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development’s (TCSRD) CSR model for implementing CSR initiatives, aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
