1 INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY


Human Resources are the most important and unique assets of an organization. Management in general getting things done through other people. Human Resource Management is an essential part on every managers responsibilities, but many organizations find it advantageous to establish a specialist division to provide an adequate service dedicated to ensuring that the human resource function is performed efficiently. As regards to the faster change in day by day situation, organizations must absorb and manage change in every level of expectation and development. In order to implement and successful business strategy to face this challenge, organization may small or large, must ensure that they have the right people capable of delivering the strategy. As organizations are vary in size, aims, functions, complexity, construction, physical nature of their product etc but in most the ultimate aims of the function is to ensure that all time the business is correctly staffed by the right number of people with the skills relevant to the business needs that is neither overstaffed nor understaffed in total or in respect of any one discipline or work grade In the present study, I have surveyed too many datas concerned to labor welfare measures in VAMSADHARA PAPER MILLS LIMITED for about 45 days of un-paid training. In those days, I was interacted with various employees of VAMSADHARA PAPER MILLS LIMITED and prepared a presentable report with the support of my faculty members and Senior Manager, Training of the company. Thus the Human Resource management forms an integral part in every organization to maintain the relationship in the organization in the process of recruiting employees in the organization, organizing training and development programmers from time to time in providing adequate welfare measures to the employees.

A survey was done only with the sample size of 100 employees of the company work in shifts and as they were busy with their schedule. The data and analysis given the report is applicable to similar purpose of the study The present study covers only for a period of 45 days

2.1 INDUSTRY PROFILE INTRODUCTION Paper has played a vital role in the development of mankind, since time is immemorial, as a means of communication, as the most versatile material for packaging of goods, as a medium of preserving knowledge for progeny. Paper is defined as A mat of cellulose fibers arranged in crises-cross fashion with hydrogen bond and other forces. Paper is derived from the word papyrus. Today, paper includes a wide range of products with very different applications: communication, cultural, educational, artistic, hygienic and sanitary as well as storage and transport of all kinds of goods. Its almost impossible to imagine a life without paper. There is a degree of consensus that the art of making paper was first discovered in China and its origin in that country is traced back to 2nd century. In about A.D 105 Tsai-Lun, an official attached to Imperial Court of China; created a sheet of paper using Mulberry and other

baste fibers along with fishnets, old rags and hemp waste. Chinese considered paper a key invention and kept this a closely guarded secret for over Five Centuries until the technology slowly made it way westward. The Arabs captured Chinese city containing a paper mill in the early 700s and from this started their own paper making industry. (Early 700s) Invention of printing in 1450s brought a vastly increased demand for paper. Paper was first made in England in 1496. The first U.S.Mill was building 1690, the rittent house mill, and German town, Pennsylvania.

EVOLUTION OF PAPER INDUSTRY A courier named Tsai-Lun, from Lei-Yang in China, was the inventor of paper (not papyrus) circa 105 A.D. However, the world paper is derived from the name of the reedy plant papyrus, which grows abundantly along the Nile River in Egypt. Paper is made of pulped cellulose fibers like wood, cotton or flax. Papyrus is made from the sliced sections of the flower stem of the papyrus plant, pressed together and dried. EVOLUTION OF PAPER 3000 BC Of all the writing and drawing materials that people have employed down the ages, paper is the most widely used around the world. Its name derives from the material used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans: papyrus. Papyrus, however, is one of those predecessors of paper produced by beating or pressing. They are known by the generic term tapa and are mostly made from the inner bark of paper mulberry, fig and Daphne. Tapa is found extensively in nearly all cultures along the equator belt. The oldest papermaking technique - and one still practiced at a few locations in the Himalayas and in SouthEast Asia -leaves no doubt as to the origin of the tapa technique. Cooked baste is flattened with a wooden to form a thin fibrous layer and then dissolved in a vat with water to make a pulp. A screen consisting of a wooden frame with a fabric bottom is laid in a puddle or big basin and floats with the fabric under the surface of the water. The papermaker then pours the quantity of pulp needed to make one sheet into this floating mould and spreads it evenly, by hand across the surface. The screen is carefully lifted out of water and allowed to drain off. A sheet of paper forms on the wire. One of the water has dripped off; the screen is placed in the sun or near a fire
7

to dry. When dry, the sheet easily peels off and, apart from possible smoothing, requires no further treatment. This technique has two basic drawbacks. Firstly, a separate screen is needed for each new sheet, and is only available for use again after the last sheet has dried. Moreover, an increase in production can soon lead to shortage of raw materials, since fresh baste is not always available everywhere in the required quantity. As recent findings of the oldest paper in Chinese tombs show, paper has been produced in China ever since the last centuries before our time reckoning. The fibers normally used for textiles, i.e., flax and hemp, also served as substitutes for baste. In late times, the wire was made of fine bamboo sticks, which freed the papermaker of then need to let the paper dry naturally on the wire, sine the poured or ladled sheet could be couched off. 1980 onwards The fifth stage (from 1980 on) leads into the future. The evolution of new sheet-forming principles (with fluid boundaries between paper and now-woven fabrics) and chemical pulp processes, but also the situation on the global market (increased demand, above all in the Third World, trends in chemical pulp pries, location problems) are again raising capital intensity and encouraging the formation of big company groups with international operations.

Simultaneously, however, there are definite opportunities for smaller local firms satisfying specific needs. 19th & 20th century The history of the paper industry in the 19th and 20th centuries can be broken down into five partly overlapping periods, each marked by definite trends. In the first stage (from approximately 1800 to 1860), all work sequences previously performed by hand were mechanized. This was true of rag preparation, the use of fillers, pulp
8

beating, the paper machine with its various parts, and the machines required for finishing the paper (head box, wire section, press section, dryer section, units for reeling, smoothing and packaging). In the second stage (from approximately 1840 to 1880) efforts were made to obtain rag substitutes on an industrial sale (Ground wood pulp and Chemical pulp) and the development of appropriate industrial plants (Ground wood and Chemicals pulp mills). The third stage (from approximately 1860 to 1950) was marked by the enlargement or the web width, an increase in working speeds, the introduction of electric drive, further improvements to various machine parts, the development of machines designed specifically for the production of particular paper and broad grades (e.g. Yankee cylinder, multi-cylinder machines). Web working width grew from 85 cm (1830) to 770 m (1930), while production speeds rose from 5m/min. (1820) to over 500m/min. (1930). The fourth stage (1950 to 1980), which was still dependent on the old methods as far as the mechanics were concerned - brought unprecedented changes in papermaking. Alongside further increases in web width and working speeds, the changes included the use of new materials (thermo mechanical pulp, de-inked recovered paper, new fillers, process chemicals and dyes), new sheet forming options (e.g. by twin wire formers), neutral sizing, greater stress on ecology (closed loops) and - most of all - automation. The operational impact of these changes is there for all to see: specialization in certain paper types; development of new paper grades (LWC-light weight coated paper); corporate mergers, company groups with their own raw material supply and trading organizations; shut downs of unprofitable operations.

INDIAN PAPER INDUSTRY Indians were using Copper plates, Iron plates and for the purpose of writing, before paper came into existence. Papermaking entered our country through Arabs as an art. This art was restricted to Muslim families as a secret, at that time, which were mainly based and lived in Kashmir and Punjab named Kagazius. Nothing can be said about the First Paper Mill in India. But it was said that, William Warvaty, in 1812 started the First Paper Mill at Sarampur, with the help of Kagazius. In 1832 four machines were installed and introduced in India. Royal Black Paper Mills started at Hubli in 1870s and was merged in Teleghar Paper Mills. Later the remaining paper mills are established one by one. The per capita paper consumption in India is only 3.62; it is inclusive of Newsprint Paper consumption. According to this it is clear that, we are much backward in paper consumption that compared to the some developed countries. Paper Industry supplies various types of paper, paper boards and specially papers to a number of end users, which includes Government, Education, Companies, Packing, Printing, News Paper and Magazines etc. Use of paper and paper product is intimately linked with the Cultural and Economic Development of a country. The demand for paper depends on a number of intangible factors such as Population, National Income; Growth of Literacy spread Education, Standard of Living and Industrial Production. GLOBAL PAPER INDUSTRY Industry Structure The Global industry is configured for volume driven operation with distinct pulp manufacturers and paper makers. Europe and Canada dominate the pulping industry while north
10

America western Europe and parts of asia dominate paper manufacturing. The global paper consumption in FY 2008 was approximately 825mn tones. Writing and printing segment for 32percent of the global paper consumption while packaging, tissue and sanitary and newsprint accounted for 50percent, 6percent and 12percent respectively. Demand- Supply Scenario Geographically, asia accounts for around 32percent for 31percent and 28percent respectively. Asian countries have experienced higher growth in demand due to higher economic growth, ranging from 7percent to 10percent per annum. As of 2008, the aggregate global capacity of paper and paper boards stood at 865 mn TPA resulting in excess supply to the extent of 40 mn TPA. However, due to geographical capacity inequalities global prices have remained steady. Global paper & board demand growth in china along other Asian economies. The growth in world paper demand and consumption pattern for the last 5 years in indicated in the chart. As per global industry estimates, paper and paper boards demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2percent p.a. and is expected to touch 883 mn TPA by 2013. DOMESTIC INDUSTRY Demand scenario Despite being the 15th largest paper manufacturer in the world, India is highly under penetrated form the consumption perspective, which makes it a Large and latent at the same time. A major portion of the consumption is attributable to the western and southern regions of the country, which account for nearly 65percent of the countrys total paper consumption. This skew in paper consumption in India has also been in line with the literacy levels and industrialization in these regions of the country.
11

Supply Scenario Effective paper & paperboard capacity was approximately 6.2 mn TPA for FY2008. the average utilization levels of the industry were at 82percent resulting in production of 5.1 tpa in fy 2008. as per the Indian paper manufacturers association, the Indian paper industry is expected to report a 5-10percent improvement in production and sales during the coming years. This growing demand is not expected to be met by a corresponding rise in capacity due to the high capital costs and environmental constraints. As the domestic paper industry has low duty protection levels, the domestic prices have been in line with international prices. This has resulted import of paper, which is now mainly confined to waste paper pulp does impact domestic pricing there by impacting profitability, but the paper imports constitutes less than 10percent of the total paper & paper board supply. Recent scenario & outlook After a prolonged down cycle, the domestic paper industry started to firm up in the last year. As the same time in the past 6-9 months has witnessed sharp rise in operating costs as inputs like caustic soda and chlorine have risen about 40 percent over the past year. The fore cast in the capacity expansion during the same period is expected to be much lower resulting in a gap between demand and supply within the country. In view of the above the overall industry outlook is expected to be positive with relatively low per capital consumption, rising demand, slow capacity additions and rise in price trends. PAPER AND ITS ESTABLISHMENT The word Paper is derived from the Water Plant called Papyrus that grows around the Nile River, Egypt. The citizens of Egypt used the bark of papyrus Plant after cutting and

12

dry it. It was said that T.Jariluru Chin had prepared with the bark of the mulberry tree in 105 A.D. In 751 A.D. the Arabs imported the knowledge of paper making with the help of Chinese, later the art of paper making was spread to Europeans and Central Countries of the world. Paper was highly popularized by the Baud has especially by the BOKZA mark through out the world. The first paper mill in the world was started in 1336 A.D. in Germany, viewing the tremendous aspect of paper Industry paper mills were started in 1586 in Switzerland and London. Later it was spread to all other countries of the world in no great amount of time. The technology used in paper making has made many modifications and was entirely different from the technology used in the beginning. In the year 1927 Chlorine gas was used for bleaching of the pulp. In 1979, Robert Micholas the French scientist has designed first paper machine in the world. The paper machine used in the late 1960s was designed by Lober Didut and Brimal Donklin. The machines used now a day are quite different and very well advanced both in capacity to produce and the enormous speed with which they operated. Another major development came in its way in 1862 when the soda pulping process was first used in England. The consumption of Rosin and Alwnn was started in 1900 A.D. The industry in these days has been much development with production technology. SIZE AND CAPACITY OF PAPER INDUSTRY The economic size of a paper industry is determined by the availability of raw materials and density of markets availability of power and transport facilities etc. The beginning of 1st V plan there were only 19 paper and production was 1.34 lakh tons. At present there are 106 mills with total annual capacity of 1394 lakh tons and production is about 11.12 lakh tones although there has been a several spreading of mills in large dimensions. There are some units well
13

organized and well equipped with a production capacity of more than 50,000 tones and units too small with a capacity of 1,000 tons. In India the growth of paper industry after independence is satisfactory under the guidance of 5 year plans. Its growth is reflected by the fact that from a major 17 mills with annual capacity of 1.37 lakh tons. In 1957, the industry has been enlarged to 319 mills with annual capacity of 32.31 lakh tons at the end of VII five year plan. The paper and paper boards production in India during 1951 was 17 units and the total installed capacity of 1.40 lakh tons, file the production excluding news print is about 1.30 lakh ton. TYPES OF PAPER PRODUCT Paper industry supplies various types of paper board, special paper to a number of uses which include Government education, companies packaging, news paper and magazines etc. The Indian paper industry produces a number of varieties of paper and paper boards. These include glassine paper, art paper, carbon papers, insulation papers, draft papers, map litho papers, quoted papers, quoted board, duplex boards, triplex boards, straw boards, paper boards, lottery paper, and Xerox paper. PRESENT STATUS In 1974 Government of India introduced the paper control order to regulate the prices and qualities of paper boards with the withdrawal of paper control order. The industry has received some received some receipt and its hope to achieve higher profitability by producing these blends of paper and paper board which are supported by terrible demand.

14

A significant term around has been achieved by a large no. of units during the past two or three years. However, the paper industry put a lot of something conflicting signals during 1992. The Government has taken the following step of encourage and enhance production of paper and paper boards in the country. They are: Paper units based on the use of minimum 75percent of pulp derived from baggage, agricultural, residues and other non contravention raw materials have been exempted for industrial licensing subjected to 10 caution angles. Manufacture of writing and printing paper and unquoted craft paper containing not less than 75percent by weight of pulp made for rice, wheat, straws, jute and baggage mix of more pulps of the above mentioned materials exempted for excise duty. Import of water paper has been freely allowed without the need import license at low rate of customs duty (20percent). In recent years the Government in other certain concessions with a review to help the industries to improve its capacity utilization and financial liability. These include liberalized import of raw materials board sanding of different vacant of paper and paperboards and de-licensing the manufacturing of certain varieties of paper. FUTURE PROSPECTS The challenges to be met by the paper industry include production of stronger paper and paperboards. Cost reduction through modernization encouragement of the use of non

conventional materials for the production of paper and paperboards and striking and equilibrium between demand and supply. Both the Central and State Government along with the private sector should strive the basic input for papers and paper boards and implement research and development.

PROFILE OF OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT MANUFACTURING PROCESS The raw materials used in the process of manufacturing paper are 1) Imported waste paper 2) Indian waste Paper and making Semi-virgin Kraft Paper varieties. Waste paper pulping Waste Paper, generally corrugated boxes, paper cuttings, trimmings etc., of Kraft variety both Indian and Imported are used for waste paper pulping. The waste paper, in suitable proportion, is fed in the pulp through salt conveyor, where it is slashed along with water. The pulp thus generated contains a lot of plastics, pins, ropes etc., partially the plastics and pins are removed in pulpier and the rest is sent to a chest, from where it goes to Turbo Separator through an HD cleaner. While, HD Cleaner removes the pins and heavy materials, plastics are removed in Turbo Separator. The cleaned pulp is sent to thickener for removing excess water. The thickened pulp is then processed in refiners to impart strength and then stored in a chest. Paper machine In Head Box, the consistency of the pulp is maintained at, as low as 0.75 to 0.8percent to have the better formation of the paper web. This excess water is removed in four-drainer at various drainage elements to the extent of 80percent i.e. 20percent solids come out of fourdrainer. Then this wet web of the paper with 20percent solids will pass through press part where the wet web is subjected to high compression loads between press rolls up to 60-120 Kg/Cm to increase the solids concentration to 40percent. The water thus removed from wet will be absorbed by the press felts and in turn removed by vacuum pump from press felts.
23

From press section, the wet web (paper) with 40percent solids, will pass through Dryer Section and get dried to 93-95percent solids. The water in the wet will be evaporated in the dryer part by indirect steaming i.e. steam is injected in the individual dryers, by which the surface of the dryers gets heated up and in turn transmit the heat to wet web to remove water. The condensate thus formed inside the dryers will be removed through condensate removal system and sent to boiler house for re-using in the boiler. The paper after drying will be wound at the pope reel in Tambur Roll. Rewinder The paper rolls thus manufactured will be concerted to required sizes, as desired by the customers, and then packed and stored in the paper go down. From go down, the paper is dispatched to various parties as per the orders. Back water The paper machine backwater, mostly collected at four drinier is sent to SAVELL to remove the fibers and the clarified back water is re circulated in the system to reduce the fresh water consumption. The fibers from Save-all take back into the system for further processing. Effluent Treatment Plant The company is having a full-fledged effluent treatment plant, to take care of the effluents generated from the mills.

Own generation (Captive power) o Through diesel generator o APSEB

ELECTRICITY It is the main source of energy for the unit. The unit is having 33/140 substation with an installed capacity of 2000 kv. This substation has a 33 KV. This substation has a 33KV line passing site. The maximum record demand is past around 12,200 KVA. The substation is sufficient to meet the requirements of the unit. But initially the

company has to face lot of problem because of heavy power cut. To overcome this problem two die generator sets of capacity 750 KVA each have been installed in the plant. They are capable of taking care of 100percent of power cut at the existing installed capacity and around 5 lacks was invested for some auxiliaries, such as motors, capacitors, cables etc., MACHINERY M/S several Engineering works who are one of the reputed paper mill machinery manufactures has made the technical evaluation of the machine condition.

3.1Theoritical background Introduction, Meaning and Definition International labour organizations are a rational system of benefits. It is a complex theory relating to existence, purpose or human behavior etc. In short, International labour organizations is the part for the way of life. It provides one with an approach, an outlook which shines through ones thinking and activities and making it meaningful. Keeping the observation in mind, one can identify five approaches to the International labour organizations of labour welfare. The policy theory of labour welfare. The religious theory of labour welfare. The philanthropic or Trusteeship theory of labour welfare. The placing theory of labour welfare. The public relations theory of labour welfare.

The Intra-Mural welfare activities states the promotion of health and safety measures, industrial safety is an important part in the field of labour welfare. The Extra-Mural welfare activities, the services and the facilities provided to workers outside the factory like housing, recreational and educational programmers, medical facilities for the family and other financial benefits etc. In order to study the importance and administration of various welfare provisions in any industry for better understanding of the theory, I have undergone to do a project on the topic of labour welfare measures with reference to VAMSADHARA PAPER MILLS

LIMITED,MADAPAM.

35

The data collection for my project was mainly based on the personal observation with the employees of the company. To facilitate a systematic understanding, the project has been divided into V chapters. The 1st chapter deals with the preface/introduction, the 2nd chapter deals with the conceptual understanding of the topic, the 3rd chapter deals with the industry profile and the company profile, the 4th chapter deals with the frame work of the topic at VAMSADHARA PAPER MILLS LIMITED , the 5th chapter deals with the analysis, the 6th chapter deals with the findings, the 7th chapter deals with the summary, the 8th chapter deals with the bibliography and the 9th chapter deals with the appendices. MEANING AND DEFINITION Labour welfare is an important facet of industrial relations, the extra dimension, giving satisfaction to the worker in a way even a good wage cannot. The term labour welfare comprises of two words, labour and welfare. The term labour means any productive activity and the term welfare means to fare well. Thus, in a broader sense, the phrase labour welfare means the adoption of measures to promote the physical, social, psychological and general well-being of the working population. Labour welfare concept may be viewed from the three angles. It may be viewed as a i) total concept ii) Social concept and iii) relative concept. The total concept is a desirable state of existing involving physical, mental morale and emotional well-being. The social concept of welfare implies the welfare for men, his family and his connectivity. The relative concept of welfare implies that welfare is relative in time and place because of welfare is to be in the context of relationship with the environment and this impart to the concept.

36

In a resolution in 1947, the INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANISTION defined labour welfare as such service, facilities and amenities as adequate contents rest and recreational facilities arrangements for travel to and from work, and for the accommodation of workers employed at a distance from their houses and such other services, amenities and facilities as contribute to improve the conditions under which workers are employed. HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF EMPLOYEE HEALTH &WELFARE Welfare work in India was mainly a product of the stresses and strains during the First World War. Before this period there were only isolated instance of welfare work mostly by outside agencies on humanitarian ground. The impetus given to welfare work during the post world war period was caused by the necessity to maintain the good will of the large and rather freshly recruited was time employees force and to gear them to increase production. Further the industrial expansion and the constant process of mass production led to the rise of working class a source of power. The moment to improve the working condition of Indian employees started with the passing of the first Indian factories Act in 1881. The deplorable conditions during those days, as testified by the factory commission of 1875 were the immediate course for the passing of the act. The act applied to factories employing not less than 100 persons and power. Under this act, the employment of children below the age of 7 years was prohibited, while those between 7,8,12 years were not to work for more than 9 hours a day. An hours daily rest and 4 holidays in a month were prescribed for children. In May 1994, the general charter of employees; particularly know as the declaration of Philadelphia, was adopted bys the member status of the INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANISTION amongst its aims & objectives the declaration said that employee are not a
37

commodity and that it is entitled to a fair deal as an active participant in any programmer of economic development or social reconstruction. After independence, the employees welfare movement acquired new dimension. It was realized that employees welfare had positive role to lay in increasing productivity and reducing industrial relation. The state began to realize its social responsibilities towards weaker sections of the society.The constitution of India control a list of fundamental rights and directive principle of state policy for the achievement of social order abased on justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. It lays down that the state shall strive to promote the welfare of the people by securing and protection as them effective as it may a social order in which justice social, economic and political shall inform all the institutions of national life. In its specify application to the working classes securing just and hum are conditions of work has become highlighted with a view to ensure them provision of a decent standard of life and life enjoyment of leisure social and culture opportunities ( Article 43 ). These principles refer to the tailing, of the steps to secure the participation of workers in the management of industries. Article 45 also deals with provisions of free and compulsory education for children which impliedly includes those of workers. Various employees welfare activities were incorporated in different 5 year plans. The first 5 years plan (1951 56) paid considerable attention to the working classes. It laid emphasis on the development of welfare facilities and avoidance of industrial disputes and creating mutual goodwill and understanding. During this period, the plantations employees act 1951 was in acted. A subsidized housing scheme for industrial workers was evolved in 1952. The second five year plan recommended undertaking a comprehensive survey of welfare activities. It was expected that such survey would provide a comprehensive picture of changes
38

taken place in respect s of different aspects of employees welfare and their by serve as useful purpose for further assessment and formulation of polices. The third 5 year plan reiterated the proposition made in the earlier plans that legislation enacted for the protection, safety welfare of workers was adequate and better enforcement was that was needed. The fifth five year plant also laid down programmed for employees welfare for promoting industrial safety in increasing measure, the plan provided for setting up safety cells in various states. An amount of 57 crores was provided for employees welfare including

craftsmen training and development service. The sixth, seventh and other 5 year plans also emphasized very much on employees welfare improvement in working and living conditions of unorganized employees not only in rural areas but also in the urban areas 3.2 OBJECTIVES OF LABOUR HEALTH & WELFARE Following are the objectives of voluntary employee welfare services. To win over employees loyalty and increase their morale. To develop efficiency and productivity among workers. To save one self from heavy taxes on surplus profits. To reduce threat of further government intervention. To make requirement more effective. To give expression of philanthropic and paternity feeling. To combat trade unionism and socialist ideas. To earn goodwill and enhance public image. To build up state employees force and to reduce employees turnover and absenteeism.
39

To providing proper safety to the physical health of employees. To reduce the accident rates with in the premises of organization. To provide the proper safety precautions to the employees. To provide proper hospitality facilities to the employees.

These could be multiple objectives in having employee welfare programmers. The concern for improving a lot of workers, a International labour organizations of humanitarianism or what is now termed as internal social responsibility, a feeling of concern of causing by providing some of lifes basic amenities besides the basic pay pocket. Such an over time of caring is supposed to build a sense of loyalty on the part of employee towards the organization. 3.3 NEED FOR LABOUR HEALTH &WELFARE Labour welfare has become a necessity because of the very nature of the Industrial system. However the need for labour welfare in some way or the other of realized all over the world because the socio-economic conditions and problems which the industrial society has throw up.The need for labour welfare was strongly felt by the committee of royal Commission on labour as far back as in 1931, primarily because of a lack of Commitment to industrial work among workers and also the harsh treatment they received from the management. This need was emphasized by the Constitution of Indian in the chapter on the directive principles of state policy, particularly in the following articles. Article 38: The state shall strive to promote the welfare of the people by securing and protection as effectively as sit may a social order in which justice social, economic and political shall inform all the institutions of the national life. Article 39: The state , in particular direct its policy towards securing.(a) That the citizens, men and women equality, have the right to an adequate means of livelihood; (b)
40

that the ownership and control of the material resources of the community are so distributed as best to sub serve the common good: (c) that the operations of the economic system does not result in the concentration of wealth and means of production to the common detriment; (d) that there is equal pay for equal work for both men and women; (e) that the health and strength of workers; men and women, and the tender age of children are not abused and the citizens are not forced by economic necessities to enter avocations unstilted to their age or strength; (I) that childhood and youth are protected against exportation and against normal and maternal abandonment. Article 41: The State shall, with in the limits of its economic capacity and development, make effective provision for securing the right to work, to education and to public assistance in cases of unemployment, old age, sickness and disablement and in other cases of undeserved want. Article 42: The state shall make provision for securing just and humane conditions of work and for maternity relief. Article 43: The State shall Endeavour to secure, by suitable legislation or economic organization or in any other way to all workers agricultural, industrial or otherwise, work, a living wage, conditions of work ensuring a decent standard of life and full enjoyment of leisure and social and cultural opportunities and in particular, the state shall endeavor to promote cottage Industries on an individual or co-operative basis in rural areas.Thus,the need for labour welfare in all sectors is clearly enunciated.

3.4 IMPORTANCE OF EMPLOYEESHEALTH & WELFARE Employees welfare is an important facet of industrial relations, the extract dimension, given satisfaction to employee, in a way which evens a good wage cannot. With the growth of industrialization and mechanization, it has acquired added importance. He needs an added stimulus to keep body and soul together. Employers have also realized the importance their role in providing these amenities. And yet, they are not always able to fulfill employees demands however reasonably they might be. They are primarily concerned with the viability of the enterprise employee welfare, though it has privileged to contribute to efficiency in production is expensive each employer depending on his priorities gives varying degrees of importance to employee welfare. It is because the govt. is not sure that employees are progressive minded and will provide basis welfare measures that it introduces statutory legislation from time to time to bring about some measure of uniformly in the basic amenities available to industrial employees. Today welfare has been generally accepted by employers. The state only intervenes to wider the area of applicability. It is now accepted that it is a social right. The committee on employee welfare scheme, described it is a social right. The committee on employee welfare formed in 1969 to review the employee welfare scheme described it as social security measures that contribute to improve the conditions under which workers are employed in India. 3.5 PRINCIPLES OF LABOUR HEALTH & WELFARE Labour welfare is dependent on certain basic principles, which must be kept in mind and property followed to achieve a successful implementation of welfare programmes.

42

Principle of Adequacy of Wages. Labour welfare measures cannot be a substitute for wages. Workers have a right to adequate wages. But high wage rates alone cannot create a healthy atmosphere, not bring about a sense of commitment on the part of workers. A combination of social welfare, emotional welfare and economic welfare together would achieve good results. Principle of Social Responsibility of Industry. This plays an important role in welfare services, and is based on the relationship between welfare and efficiency, through it is difficult to measure this relationship. Whether one accepts the social responsibility of industry or not the employer quite often accepts responsibility for implementing such labour welfare measures as would increase efficiency. Principle of Re-personalization. The development of the human personality is given here as the goal of industrial welfare which, according to this principle, should counteract to the baneful effects of the industrial system. Therefore, it is necessary to implement labour welfare services, both inside and outside the factory, that is, provide intra-mural and extra-mural labour welfare services. Principle of Totality of Welfare. This emphasizes that the concept to labour welfare must spread throughout the hierarchy of an organization. Employees at all levels must accept this total concept of labour welfare because, without this acceptance, labour welfare programmes will never really get off the ground. Principle of Co-ordination or Integration. This plays an important role in the success of welfare services. Here again, welfare is a total concept. From this angle, co-ordinated approach will promote a healthy development of the
43

worker in his work, home and community. This is essential for the sake of harmony and continuity in labour welfare services. Principal of Association or Democratic Value. The co-operation of the worker is the basis of this principle. Consultation with, and the agreement of workers in, the formulation and implementation of labour welfare services very necessary for their success. Moreover, workers allowed to participate in planning these

programmers get keenly interested in their proper implementation. This principle is based on the assumption that the worker is a mature and rational individual Industrial democracy is the driving force here. Workers also develop a sense of pride when they are made to feel that labour welfare programmes are created by them and for them. Principle of Responsibility. This recognizes the fact that both employers and workers are responsible for labour welfare. Trade unions, too, are involved in these programmes in a healthy manner, for basically labour welfare belongs to the domain of trade union activity. Further, when responsibility is shared by different groups, labour welfare work becomes simpler and easier. Accordingly various committees are elected or nominated and various powers and responsibilities in the welfare field are delegated to them. Principle of Accountability. This may also be called the Principle of Evaluation. Here, one responsible person given an assessment or evaluation of existing welfare services on a periodical basis to a higher authority. This is very necessary, for then one can judge and analyze the success of labour welfare programmes. Such scientifically made evaluation is lacking in labour welfare services in Indian industries.
44

Principle of Timeliness. The timeliness of any service helps in its success. To identify the labour problem and to discover what kind of help is necessary to solve it and when to provide this help and all very necessary in planning labour welfare programmed. Timely action in the proper direction is essential in any kind of social work. 3.6 TYPES OF WELFARE ACTIVITIES The meaning of employee welfare may be made clearer by listing the activities and facilities which are referred to as welfare measures. A comprehensive list of welfare activities is given by mostly in his monumental work on employee welfare. He divides welfare measures into two broad groups namely: Welfare measures inside the work place. Welfare measures outside the work place.

WELFARE MEASURES INSIDE THE WORKPLACE Conditions of the work environment. a. Neighborhood safety and cleanliness, attention to approaches. b. Workshop (room) sanitation and cleanliness, temperature humidity, ventilation, lighting, elimination of dust, smoke, fumes. Workmens safety measures, that is, maintenance of tools, providing guards, helmets, goggles and first-aid equipment. WELFARE MEASURES OUTSIDE THE WORKPLACE Housing: bachelors quarters; family residences according to types and rooms. Water, sanitation, waste disposal. Roads, lightings, parks, recreation, playgrounds.
45

Transport.

ORGANISATION FOR WELFARE In most organizations, welfare is the responsibility of welfare officers. The factories act 1948 mandates that every industrial establishment must appoint welfare officer if the number of employees is 500 or more. Welfare officers are educated and trained in field and are, therefore, in a better position to manage welfare well, but the problem with this officers is that they are more concerned with compliance statutory provisions that with the genuine well-being of employees. Legal provisions invariably stipulated that certain minimum facilities should be provided to employees in industrial establishments. The minimum facilities are inadequate to project the welfare of employees. Welfare officers, too, often fail to enforce compliance of even the minimum requirements. It is argued that the prime responsibility for welfare should rest with the line managers as they are in a vantage position to understand the problem of employees. Even this arrangement may not be desirable because employees are reluctant to share their personal problem with bosses, in case the latter gets prejudiced against their (former) interests. The obvious alternative is the HR manager who knows how help can be provided and is capable of exercising counseling skills. But the HR manager is required to attend to other personnel activities as well. Welfare is one are which demands undivided attention. Consequently, an ideal organizational arrangement should have a welfare officer to implement welfare activities. Policy decisions and directions shall be provided by the HR manager. STATUTORY Statutory welfare is composed of those provisions of welfare work which depends for their implementation to the coercive power of the govt. The govt enacts certain rules in regard to
46

labour welfare in order to enforce the minimum standards of health and safety of workers. Employees have to observe the rules relating to working conditions, hours of work, safety, light, ventilation, sanitation etc. These are mandated by the The Factories Act,1948 Employee State Insurance act, 1948 Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 Employee Provident Fund Act,1952 Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 Employees Family Pension Scheme, 1995. Workmen Compensation Act,1923 The deposit linked insurance scheme.

THE FACTORIES ACT, 1948 The act was first conceived in 1881 when a legislation was enacted to protect children and to provide health and safety measures later, hours of work were sought to be regulated and were, therefore, incorporated in the act in 1911.The act was amended and enlarged in 1934 following the recommendations of the royal of labour .A more comprehensive legislation to regulate working conditions replaced the act in 1948.
