Abstract: When industries incorporate social, economic, environmental and ethical dimensions in their business policy and practices and take care of the needs and expectations of their stakeholders, it is called corporate social responsibility (CSR). As local community is one of the primary stakeholders of the industry, the CSR policy and practices of the industry have to give them top priority. In the present empirical study, the perception of the local community on CSR, who resides near the vicinity of the coal mines of Odisha, has been taken into account and critically examined the CSR activities of Mahanadi Coal Field Ltd. (MCL). Majority of the community are not satisfied with the CSR activities of MCL. Particularly the community, who resides near the closed coal mine, is not getting the benefits of the CSR activities.
