Application Procedure

Following is the procedure for project proposal bank

  • The interested empanelled development partners of National CSR Hub are required to submit project proposals in the very detailed template already prepared by the National CSR Hub.
  • Each development partner is allowed to submit only one proposal, for a thematic and geographical area for which it is empanelled (the empanelment certificate that mentions the geographical and thematic area of empanelment must be attached with the application).
  • Even if the organization is empanelled in multiple thematic/geographical areas , it can submit only one proposal.

Each development partner making a project proposal submission towards the project proposal bank will also have to submit a processing fee of Rs. 3000/- at the time of submission

(this fee is applicable to all submissions, irrespective of whether the proposal is eventually placed in the bank).

This stage’s tentative timeline: one to one and a half months from submission

  • The first level of review of the submitted proposals would be by select team members of the Hub under the supervision of  Head, Project Proposal Bank, Ananya Samajdar.
  • Proposals that are found to be possessing significant shortcomings such as lack of consistency with legal provisions, absence of impact orientation, non-project mode implementation, ad-hoc nature, lack of sustainability, and lack of evidence of community need will be classified by the review team as ‘not recommended in present form’.  
  • Clarifications/further refinement of proposals will not be requested for such proposals, though the implementing agency will be informed of the outcome and reasons for the same.
  • Clarifications/further refinement will only be requested for proposals that pass the first stage of screening.
  • For these proposals, Development   partners will be requested to revert with requested clarifications within two weeks, to increase the likelihood of smooth and speedy processing of proposals.
