Speaking on the social impact of the CSR programs run by him, Mr. Dugar says, “The biggest among all is in terms of the funds that we are giving for higher education; it’s heartening to note that all the students supported by us after completing their studies are excelling well in their professional lives. Not only this, they are also contributing back to society and that’s the biggest impact.”  

Widely acknowledged as a big name in donating for noble causes, he has been sponsoring many schools and hospitals. Recently, he has contributed in a hospital in Hyderabad.

Some of his social enterprises include the Aryans School, Stem World School and Kusum Devi Sunderlal Dugar Jain Dental College and Hospital, among others.  

“We don't give any mortgage loan and we don't take any undertakings from them. Since the intent is very clear they themselves think that after the completion of their studies and getting jobs they have to return the money,” he added. Mr. Dugar takes pride in never entering the race for reaping big profit but he always believes in fulfillment of all the commitments made.   “We always live up to the expectations of our customers.  We don't give advertisements to sell our products.”
