  • The donations have gone towards helping NGOs in Delhi, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Bihar.
  • The causes supported have ranged from education and children to the environment, elderly and disabled.
  • ZEEL has been ranked 43rd among 124 companies as per the annual payroll contribution per employee per month.

Mr. Punit Goenka, MD and CEO, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., said “Contribution to the society and to the environment, as one's core social responsibility, has always been an important value imbibed in each member of the entire ZEE Family of over 2000 employees across the globe. Our participation in the Payroll Giving Programme is a reflection of this value, and I am extremely glad to be associated with GiveIndia for such a noble cause.”
