Kartavya is the CSR club of IIM Raipur. As a part of the club, students develop a sense of responsibility towards society. At the same time, it inculcates in them the spirit to work in teams and handle difficult situations with ease. Students, through the CSR activities, associate themselves with the society and the issues pertaining to it. As budding managers and emerging leaders from a prestigious business school, the students come up with optimal solutions to serve the society in a better way with constrained resources but imperturbable willpower.
