Describe a good law in your country.
You should say:
- What is the law?

- Whom does it affect?
- Why is it good?
(What is the law?) It is good news that India has made corporate social responsibility a law since April 2014. This law makes it compulsory for companies that exceed certain profit margins to spend two percent of their profits towards worthy objectives. It is an excellent initiative, as it will help to reduce the rich-poor distinction to some extent.
(How you came to know about this law?) (Whom does it affect?)I read newspapers daily. One such day in April 2014, I read about this law when I was skimming the headlines. It is an amendment to the already existing Companies Act, 2013. It is targeted towards the corporate companies which amass wealth. India is home to several IT giants, and this law had been enforced at just the right time.
(Why is it good?)Many companies have been found to be irregular in paying their taxes. So this law is a thoughtful approach to involve these companies in nation-building. There are honourable intentions behind the implementation of the law. Companies will be spending some money towards a noble cause such as eradication of illiteracy, improving health conditions etc. This law will help every company to add purpose and meaning to their establishment. Be it direct involvement or implementation through partnered associations, this law has ensured that the poorer sections of the society receive some tangible benefits. Some companies have implemented programs involving their employees. So people at work can also feel happy about contributing to the community in some manner. When the companies work hand-in-hand with NGOs, we can expect greater relief programs for the poor.
The whole world is eager to know the productivity level of this implementation. It has already created a stir and is likely to be more successful. I’m sure that many more countries will follow suit.
