Abstract: The leadership style is a vital factor which affects the enhancement of organisation and its employee's commitment. The objective of this study is to examine the relationship of transformational leadership on organisational commitment and to examine the mediating role of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The primary data was collected from the 121 employees working in private banks in Delhi, using a simple random sampling technique. Regression analysis was applied to examine whether corporate social responsibility mediate the relationship amongst transformational leadership and organisational commitment. The findings reflect that transformational leadership positively impacts organisational commitment. The research also proved that corporate social responsibility significantly and partially has a mediating effect on the relationship between transformational leadership and organisational commitment. These findings encourage banks in the developing nations to implement corporate social responsibility practices by transformational leaders to increase organisational commitment.

Keywords: corporate social responsibility; CSR; organisational commitment; private banking; transformational leadership.
