Growing integration concept among nations, the globalization and liberalization gave birth to capitalism and private ownership. India is one of the fast growing economies in the emerging markets, where the 1990’s Indian industrial policy has been changed the facade and fate of country in both GDP and status of people. The literacy rate become increasing year on year, on the other hand surging corporate education by taking as a chance of domestic private players as well as welcome the foreign universities to globalize the nation. Domestic corporate players in the education sector have been contributing their efforts to make country as effusive literacy and compose students ready and fit for industry needs. Further the concept of social responsibility emerged both in industry and academia. Since India is a young country in many fields and there is no specific framework or model to educate the physically handicapped students and build vigorous career. Due to lack of funds, government is also unable to focus on this segment. Taking this is an initiative by IIT Roorkee management and faculty established ‘Roorkee School for the Deaf’ under ‘Community Supported Project.’ The present case gives a thought on social responsibility and motivates the corporate houses to take initiative for the development of untouched people by philanthropic education as a pearl to them and construct as an independent social spirit. Finally the case reminds corporate that PHC children are also living in the society and convince them how the propose model contribute to social development.
