Feedback´s formal Corporate Social Responsibility activity began in 2000 when their Chairman, Ravichandar was nominated as a member of the Bangalore Agenda Task Force (BATF). This was a public private initiative of the Government of Karnataka to make Bangalore a world class city. In BATF, Ravichandar contributed to city improvement initiatives on a voluntary (pro bono) basis. During 2000-04, he was specifically engaged with government agencies on initiatives like Self Assessment Scheme for property tax (a 15 fold increase in 12 years), Infrastructure projects, Bangalore Master Plan, Lalbagh restoration, Traffic and Transportation, etc.
Ravichandar was actively involved (along with three others) in evangelizing a National Urban Renewal Mission (JN-NURM) with the Central Government. This was launched as a US $12 billion initiative in December 2005 for 64 cities in India.
Ravichandar is an evangelizer for a City Connect initiative (http://www.cityconnect.in/) making the case for Corporate involvement in building better cities. This is being done in conjunction with CII. City Connect chapters have been set up in Bangalore, Chennai and Pune. Currently the idea is being propagated across 8 to 10 cities.
Feedback Consulting has publicly set out over 50 actionable ideas for urban governance (http://www.ideasforgov.org/). Ravichandar (along with fellow director Hema Ravichandar) has set up a portal for retired professionals. (http://www.seniorexperts.org/).
Feedback Consulting has worked with various NGOs on ideation and business plans on a pro bono basis (livelihoods, education). Feedbackers', follow a creed of Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) in their daily lives. This is manifested in the firm by embracing the 'Go Green' theme.
