So, they have established Employability Linked Vocational Training Centers under the banner of DLF LIFE (Learning Initiative for Employment) for training one million youths in next 10 years about the skills need for employment and they provide employment for those people. The programme has been carried out in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi. A large number of youth have been provided employment across the 19 centers established till date.

Community Development Employability-linked Skill Development Programme, the DLF Raghvendra Scholarship Programme for the underprivileged and the Gurgaon Renewal Mission were introduced by the DLF Foundation addresses the gaps in the field of Education, Healthcare environment and labour welfare.

DLF Learning Excellence Centres Taking the education initiative ahead, DLF partnered with Pratham in May 2007 and set up DLF Learning Excellence Centres in 25 villages by involving the government schools, community teachers and introducing innovative teaching learning material. The main hurdles faced during the project were lack of adequate means of public transport and resistance from the local community to involve the women. However, these were overcome through a sustained education and awareness campaign conducted across the entire village community and by taking the village Panchayats into confidence. This is an ongoing project likely to benefit 1100 students over a period of one year. Development of Arya Samaj Mandir DLF Commercial Developers Ltd. has contributed Rs.20 lacs towards the development of Arya Samaj Mandir in DLF City, Phase-II. This will not only help in over all development of the Mandir primises but also help the community at large where devotees can come and seek spiritual satisfaction. DLF Labour Hutment DLF felt that even though there had been tremendous improvement in construction technology and quality it was distressing to note that the people who actually make all the buildings were neglected lot and often required to do so in inhuman conditions. The sight of construction workers and their children living in jhuggies(A slum area in Delhi) without even the basic facilities at most of the construction sites. DLF wanted to improve the living conditions of their construction workers by providing them all the basic necessities at the site itself by efficient and effective space 4

They decided that before commencement of the construction a suitable location should be identified on site for construction of hutments for the workers for the entire duration of the project. Instead of constructing temporary accommodation DLF sanctioned hefty budgets to build a mix of cemented hutments and dormitories for the workers. The entire labour hutment area was paved to ensure easy access even during the monsoons.The work of sanitation and housekeeping was outsourced to a third party namely M/s Lion Services. All the residential accommodation at the DLF labour hutment site is provided with electricity, water, fans, beds and separate areas have been provided for toilets and washing. In order to take care of the children of the workers mobile crèches have been made available on site through a strategic tie up with an NGO named Mobile Creches. A canteen manned by a third party has also been made available on site to ensure hygienic and good quality food on site. Medical help is available on site along with a 24-hour ambulance to take care of emergencies. In order to improve the skills of the workers as well as train potential workers on site a non-profit residential "Apprentice Training Centre" for imparting skills in carpentry and masonry was started. Helping the Rural craftsmen As a infrastructure creator, DLF provided a place for NGOs and various Social Foundations to display their wares.This brought those organizations closer to the urban consumers and increased their income. As part of this initiative in the retail malls set up in Gurgaon,it awarded free space to NGO's like Khushboo Welfare Society, India Vision Foundation and the Rashtriya Blind School and others to enable them to exhibit their products for awareness and to create awareness for the cause they espouse. Environment Programs DLF incorporates green initiatives in all its construction activities. They are,  Recycling of waste water.  Rainwater harvesting.  Use of high performance reflective glass in buildings.  Pollution control measures during construction activity at project sites.  Use of green materials like fly ash in construction. 5
  • 6. A total of 47 awards have been received by DLFunder various categories.DLF‟s 150 MW windpower plant at Gujarat is a clean power plant as there is no carbon emission from that power generation. It has installed a gas-based power generation system at the Infinity Tower, Gurgaon.They use the waste heat for air-conditioning and this saves about 25 per cent of power.DLF conducts plantation drive in many villages by involving the Government school children and the local Panchayats with support from the Forest Department.DLF is in the process of switching its street lighting system to 36 watts CFL with electronic choke thereby saving 15-20 watts per street light. Employees volunteering programme Blood Donation camps are also being organised for blood donation by the employees in association with Lions Blood Bank. Donation programmes are done where the employees contribute and donate old clothes and other household articles for the construction workers and their families employed at DLF construction sites. My Inference DLF besides focusing on its business development, also focuses on the society and its better improvement which is a sign of responsible lead in the society. The company‟s concern on the people is respectable.Few lines under the CSR tab of the company‟s website says, “We dream, We dare We grow, We share We build,We care” The second line implies, as the company grows, it shares some amount of its profit for the development of the society around and keep doing it through its DLF FOUNDATION. Building of the business is not their only moto but caring for their employees, society and their welfare are also in lane. Government‟s rule on the companies to spend 2% of their profit on CSR activities is really appreciable. 6
