PREFACE
HRM is the legal liason between the organization and the employees. A large part of the growth of Airports Authority of India is the Human Resources Department who are responsible for hiring the people with the knowledge to bring new technology into a company. To be successful they need a highly skilled, flexible and committed work force, a flexible and innovative management, the ability to retain developed talent, and a strong partnership between management and labour unions.

To achieve these goals, the company needs a talented workforce. Besides hiring the right people to manage and perform specific jobs, HR cell have to build up commitment and loyalty among the workforce by keeping them up to date about company plans, and laying out the implications for job security and working conditions.

From the first day of my internship to the last day of the training, the HR cell was every employees main connection between the production floor and the upper management. The HR department kept the employees informed via bicompany newsletter and bulletin- board postings throughout the organization.

The backbone of any successful company is the HR department and without a talented group of people to hire, culture and inform employees, the company is doomed for failure. Hence it is one of the major task of any organization that its recruitment and selection process is carried out in a proper manner so that only well qualified and knowledgeable pool of candidates are selected in the organization.

AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA (AAI)

COMPANY PROFILE
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) was formed on 1 st April, 1995 by merging the International Airports Authority of India and the National Airports Authority with a view to accelerate the integrated development, expansion and modernization of the operational, terminal and cargo facility at the airports in the country confirming to international standards. Airports Authority of India came into being by merging erstwhile International Airports Authority and National Airports Authority of India. The merger brought into existence a single organization entrusted with the responsibility of creating, upgrading, maintaining and managing the Civil Aviation infrastructure both on the ground and air space in the country. Aviation sector in a vast country like India plays a pivotal role in meeting the fast growing needs of the country. The Civil Aviation Sector in our country is witnessing boom in terms of traffic growth. The estimated traffic growth of about 8 to 10 percent in the domestic as well as international market is in itself an indication of the potential of this sector and its likely impact on the socio-economic development of India. The opening up of Civil Aviation Sector and the revival of the tourism industry over the past few years has added new dimensions and challenges to the AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA in handling growing air-traffic and providing better facilities to users. AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA (AAI) was formed on 1st April, 1995 by an Act of Parliament. It manages 127 airports which include: 15 International Airports (including Delhi & Mumbai) 7 Customs Airports 25 Civil Enclaves 80 Domestic Airports

AAI manages 125 airports, which include 11 International Airport, 08 Customs Airports, 81 Domestic Airports and 27 Civil Enclaves at Defence airfields. AAI provides air navigation services over 2.8 million square nautical miles of air space. During the year 20-09, AAI handled aircraft movement of 1306532 Nos. [International 270345 & Domestic 1036187], Passengers handled 44262137 Nos. [International 1047614 & Domestic 3378590] and the cargo handled 499418 tonnes [International 318242 & Domestic 181176]

1. 1. Passenger Facilities

Passengers Facilities

The main functions of AAI inter-alia include construction, modification & management of passengers terminals, development & management of cargo terminals, development & maintenance of apron infrastructure including runways, parallel taxiways, apron etc., Provision of Communications, Navigation and Surveillance which includes provisions of DVOR/ DME, ILS, ATC radars, visual aids etc., provision of air traffic services, provision of passenger facilities and related amenities at its terminals thereby ensuring safe and secure operations of aircraft, passengers and cargo in the country.

2. 2. Air Navigation Services

Air Navigation Services

In tune with global approach to modernization of Air Navigation infrastructure for seamless navigation across state and regional boundaries, AAI has been going ahead with its plans for transition to satellite based Communication, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management. A number of cooperation agreements and memoranda of co-operation have been signed with US Federal Aviation Administration, US Trade & Development Agency, European Union, Air Services Australia and French Government Co-operative Projects and Studies initiated to gain from their experience. Through these activities more and more executives of AAI are being exposed to the latest technology, modern practices & procedures being adopted to improve the overall performance of Airports and Air Navigation Services. Induction of latest state of the art equipment, both as replacement and old equipments and also as new facilities to improve standards of safety of airports in the air is a continuous process. Adoptions of new and improved procedures go hand in hand with induction of new equipment. Some of the major initiatives in this direction are introduction of Reduced Vertical separation Minima (RVSM) in India air space to increase airspace capacity and reduce congestion in the air; implementation of GPS and Geo Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) jointly with ISRO which when put to operation would be one of the four such systems in the world.

3. 3. Security

Security

The continuing security environment has brought into focus the need for strengthening security of vital installations. There was thus an urgent need to revamp the security at airports not only to thwart any misadventure but also to restore confidence of travelling public in the security of air travel as a whole, which was shaken after 9/11 tragedy. With this in a view, a number of steps were taken including deployment of CISF for airport security, CCTV surveillance system at sensitive airports, latest and state of the art X-ray baggage inspection systems, premier security & surveillance systems. Smart Cards for access control to vital installations at airports are also being considered to supplement the efforts of security personnel at sensitive airports.

4. 4. Aerodrome Facilities

Aerodrome Facilities

In Airports Authority of India, the basic approach to planning of airport facilities has been adopted to create capacity ahead of demand in our efforts. Towards implementation of this strategy, a number of projects for extension and strengthening of runway, taxi track and aprons at different airports has been taken up. Extension of runway to 7500 ft. has been taken up to support operations for Airbus-320/Boeing 737-800 categories of aircrafts at all airports. 5. 5. HRD Training HRD Training

A large pool of trained and highly skilled manpower is one of the major assets of Airports Authority of India. Development and Technological enhancements and consequent refinement of operating standards and procedures, new standards of safety and security and improvements in management techniques call for continuing training to update the knowledge and skill of officers and staff. For this purpose AAI has a number of training establishments, viz. NIAMAR in Delhi, CATC in Allahabad, Fire Training Centres at Delhi & Kolkata for in-house training of its engineers, Air Traffic controllers, Rescue & Fire Fighting personnel etc. NIAMAR & CATC are members of ICAO TRAINER programme under which they share Standards Training Packages (STP) from a central pool for imparting training on various subjects. Both CATC & NIAMAR have also contributed a number of STPs to the Central pool under ICAO TRAINER programme. Foreign students have also been participating in the training programme being conducted by these institutions. 6. 6. IT Implementation Implementation

Information Technology holds the key to operational and managerial efficiency, transparency and employee productivity. AAI initiated a programme to indoctrinate IT culture among its employees and this is most powerful tool to enhance efficiency in the organization.

SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT
Every organization has the option of choosing the candidates for its recruitment processes from two kinds of sources: Internal and External Sources. The sources within the organization itself (like transfer of employees from one department to other promotions) to fill a position are known as the Internal Sources of Recruitment. Recruitment candidates from all the other sources (like outsourcing agencies etc.) are known as the External Sources of Recruitment.

1) Advertisements 2) Employment Exchanges 3) Consultants 4) Labour Contractors

INTERNAL SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT IN AAI


Internal Recruitment is a recruitment which takes place within the concern or organization. Internal sources of recruitment are readily available to an organization. Internal sources are primarily three- Transfers, Promotions and Re-employment of ex-employees. Internal recruitment may lead to increase in employees productivity as their motivation level increases. It also saves time, money and efforts. But a drawback of internal recruitment is that it refrains the organization from new blood. Also, not all the manpower recruitments can be met through internal recruitment. Hiring from outside has to be done. ADVANTAGES OF INTERNAL RECRUITMENT It offers wonderful opportunities for the current staff to further their careers. Internal recruitment could also be a great way of keeping workers who may have been considering a flight from the company, this is advantageous because the cost of training are at most best insignificant and to the worst much less than it would cost if the organization advertised outside. Its definitely faster and less costly than outside recruitment and it has the added merits because current employees are familiar entity. DISADVANTAGES OF INTERNAL RECRUITMENT Limits the number of potential applicants for a job. External candidates might be better suited/qualified for the job. Another vacancy will be created that has to be filled. Existing staff may feel they have the automatic right to be promoted, whether or not they are competent. Business may becomes resistant to change; by recruitment from outside, new perspectives and attitudes are brought in. The Internal sources of Recruitment include: Promotions Demotions Transfers Retired and retrenched employees The dependents and relative of Deceased employees.

1. PROMOTIONS

The employees are promoted from one department to another with more benefits and greater responsibility based on efficiency and experience. Promotion implies upgrading of an employee to a higher position carrying higher status, pay and responsibilities. Promotion from among the present employees is advantageous because the employees promoted are well acquainted with the organizational culture, they get motivated. Promotion from among present employees also reduces the recruitment for job training.

Promotions for various Executives and Non-Executives cadres in AAI are based on certain criteria as prescribed below: CRITERIA AND BENCHMARK FOR PROMOTIONS TO VARIOUS GRADES IN EXECUTIVE AND NON EXECUTIVE CADRES: For Promotion to the level of Deputy General Manager(DGM) (E-6) and above: The benchmark for promotions to the Grade of DGM (E-6) and above will be VERY GOOD. (This will ensure elements of higher selectivity in comparison to promotions to the grades lower than the aforesaid level, where the benchmark as indicated below, shall be GOOD only). The DPC shall for promotion to the said Pay Scale(Grade) and above, will give one of the following overall grading to the officers who are in the consideration zone:-

i) ii) iii) iv) v)

OUTSTANDING VERY GOOD GOOD AVERAGE UNFIT

While drawing up the Selection Panel for promotion, officers graded as Outstanding will be placed en-bloc senior to the officers who are graded as VERY GOOD provided they are within the number of vacancies for which the DPC is held. Since the benchmark is VERY GOOD for promotions to the grade of DGM and above, the officers getting grading lesser than VERY GOOD will not be empanelled. For promotions from the level of Junior Executive (E-1) to the level of Sr. Manager (E-4) For promotions to the post of Assistant Manager (E-2) up to the grade of Senior Manager (E-4), the benchmark will be GOOD. The DPC shall for promotion to the posts/grades in these categories, grade officers as OUTSTANDING, VERY GOOD, GOOD, AVERAGE and UNFIT. Only those officers who are graded as GOOD and above shall be included in the Select Panel prepared by the DPC in order of their inter-se-seniority in the feeder grade. While preparing the Select Panel, officers graded as OUTSTANDING will be placed en-bloc senior to the officers graded as VERY GOOD, and the officers graded as GOOD, provided they are within the number of vacancies for which the DPC is held. Similarly, for placing Senior Manager (E-4) to Senior Manager (Selection Grade) (E-5), the benchmark will be GOOD. For promotion in the Non-Executive Grades: Promotion to all these Grades will be on the basis of Seniority-cum-Fitness, subject to the rejection of UNFIT. The DPC will therefore, grade the officers as FIT or UNFIT, on the basis of performance as reflected in their Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs) for the relevant period, and subject to qualifying test, wherever prescribed.

COMPOSITION & METHODOLOGY OF ASSESSMENT: 1. The Departmental Promotion Committee will be constituted for selection of suitable candidates with respect to the level of posts and the representatives of SC/ST will be included/co-opted wherever applicable as per the guidelines on the subject. The members of the DPC will be at least two levels higher than the posts for which the DPC is conducted wherever possible. Where the posts are to be filled up on the basis of interview, an outside expert will also be associated with the DPC/Selection Committee. 2. Each Departmental Promotion Committee should decide its own method and procedure for objective assessment of the suitability of the candidates, who are in the consideration zone for promotion. In order to ensure greater selectivity in the matter of promotions and for having uniform procedures for assessment by the DPCs, the following guidelines are prescribed: While merit has to be recognized and rewarded, advancement in an officers career should not be regarded as a matter of course, but should be earned by dint of hard work, good conduct and result-oriented performance as reflected in the Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs), and based on strict and rigorous selection process. The average performance should be regarded as routine and undistinguished. It is only performance that is really note-worthy which should entitle an officer to recognition and suitable rewards in the matter of promotion. Confidential Reports are the basic inputs on the basis of which assessment is to be made by each DPC. The evaluation of Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs) should be fair, just and nondiscriminatory.

It is this aspect, which is foremost and hence while considering a request for appointment on Compassionate grounds by a Committee, a balanced and objective assessment of the financial condition of the family has to be made taking into consideration its assets and liabilities and all other relevant factors such as the presence of earning member, size of the family, age of the children and the essential needs of the family etc. The existing position has been reviewed in this Department and it has been decided by the competent authority that to achieve the objective of the scheme of the Compassionate Appointment and to ensure complete transparency, merits of the cases can be conveniently decided by allocating points to the applicants based on various attributes indicated in the references of DOP & T from time to time.

EXTERNAL SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT IN AAI


External sources of recruitment have to be solicited from outside the organization. External sources are external to a concern. But it involves lot of time and money. ADVANTAGES OF EXTERNAL RECRUITMENT Outside people bring in new ideas. Large pool of candidates from which to choose the best candidates. The organization will have the benefit of new skills, new talents and new experiences, if people are hired from external sources. The management will be able to fulfil reservation requirements in favour of the disadvantaged sections of the society. Scope for resentment, heartburn and jealousy can be avoided by recruiting from outside. DISADVANTAGES OF EXTERNAL RECRUITMENT Longer process. More expensive process due to advertisements and interviews required. Selection process may not be effective enough to reveal the best candidate Better motivation and increased morale associated with promoting own employees re lost to the organization. External recruitment is costly. If recruitment and selection process are not properly carried out, chances of right candidates being rejected and wrong applicants being selected occur. High training time is associated with external recruitment.

The External Sources of recruitment include-

Advertisements Employment exchanges Consultants Labour contractor

1. ADVERTISEMENTS
It is a popular method of seeking recruits, as many recruiters prefer advertisements because of their wide reach. Want ads describe the job benefits, identify the employer and tell those interested how to apply. Newspaper is the most common medium but for highly specialized recruits, advertisements may be placed in professional or business journals. Advertisements must contain proper information like the job content, working conditions, location of job, compensation including fringe benefits, job specifications, growth aspects, etc. The advertisement has to sell the idea that the company and job are perfect for the candidate. Advertisements in AAI can be online or offline. Online advertisements are released http://www.aai.aero/AAI/main.jsp in the AAI website-----

Recruitment Advertising includes all communications used by an organization to attract talent to work within it. Recruitment advertisements may be the first impression of a company for many people, and the first impression the firm makes goes a long way to determining interest in the job opening being advertised. AAI Recruitment advertisements typically have a uniform layout and contain the following elements: The job title heading and location. An exploratory paragraph describing the company. A description of the position Entry qualification. The remuneration package (not always provided by the employer). Further details and from where application forms may be sought.

These ads are placed in business journals like employment news. A number of factors influence the response rate of advertisements. There are three important variables- identification of the organization, labour market conditions and the degree to which specific requirements are included in the advertisements. The respective Personnel Department will release an advertisement in the Press inviting applications from candidates fulfilling the conditions of the post. Recruitment will be resorted to only against duly sanctioned posts as per the requirement of the department concerned. While releasing the advertisement, the job specifications, the educational qualifications and experience required for the post and reservation details shall be clearly mentioned.

2. EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGES
The employment exchanges maintain detailed records of job-seekers and refer appropriate candidates to the employers. The employers are required to notify the vacancies to these exchanges. The agencies help to match personnel demand and supply by serving as a link between job seekers and the employers. They also provide services like vocational guidance, occupational research, designing, testing and selection programmes, collection and publication of employment information, etc. Employment exchanges run by the Government are regarded as good source of recruitment for unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled operative jobs. Employment Exchanges have been set up all over the country in defence to the provision of the Employment Exchanges (Compulsory Notification of vacancies) Act, 1959. The Act applies to all industrial establishments having 25 workers or more each. The Act requires all the industrial establishments to notify the vacancies before they are filled. The major functions of the exchanges are to increase the pool of possible applicants and to do the preliminary screening. Thus, employment exchanges act as a link between the employers and the prospective employees. The officers are particularly useful to in recruiting blue-collar, white-collar and technical workers. It operates through a net work of 947 employment exchanges and carries out the following functions: Registration and placement of job seekers so as to ensure a proper balance between demand and supply. Collect comprehensive Employment Market Information on a quarterly basis for creation of data base for use in effective management of the demand and supply of labour, preparing career literature for counselling and vocational guidance. Career counselling and Vocational Guidance. Conduct area specific specialised study/surveys to have an assessment of skills available and the marketable skills required for encouraging the job-seekers for self-employment, particularly in rural informal sector. Some of the State Governments arrange disbursement of unemployment allowance to certain specific categories of job seekers out of their own resources through the employment exchanges as registered with them.

The Employment Exchanges (Compulsory Notification of Vacancies) Act, 1959 provides for compulsory notification of vacancies and submission of employment returns (ER-I and ER-II) by the employers to the employment exchanges. The Act applies to all establishments in the public sector and such establishments in the private sector as are engaged in non-agricultural activities and employing 25 or more workers. The employer in every establishment in public sector in any State or area shall furnish such information or returns as may be prescribed in relation to vacancies that have occurred or are about to occur in that establishment, to such employment exchanges as may be prescribed.

Signature of the Head of Office Date:

3.CONSULTANTS
They are in the profession for recruiting and selecting managerial and executive personnel. They are useful as they have nationwide contacts and lend professionalism to the hiring process. They also keep prospective employer and employee anonymous. However, the cost can be a deterrent factor. Normally appointments are made in the government against sanctioned posts. However, occasion may arise where for understanding specific jobs of a specialized nature, specialists have to be appointed as consultants. Such consultants may be appointed neither on a full time or a part time basis. In the case of a full-time consultant, he is not allowed to take up any other assignment during the period of consultancy. In the case of a part-time consultant, since the services are not availed of on a whole-time basis, there is no objection to his undertaking other jobs. Further, the officers engaged as consultants could either be non-officials or retired govt. servants. CRITERIA FOR NUMBER OF CONSULTANTS Consultants should be engaged only to undertake specific jobs of a specialized nature and should not be appointed for the regular work of the ministries/departments. Engagement of any Consultants whether outside experts, i.e those who have not been in Govt. services, or retired govt. servants should henceforth be limited to tapping skills which is not available within the cadre or for attending to specific and time bound jobs like preparation of Project Reports etc and engagement of consultants should not at all be allowed for routine day-to-day work. PERIOD OF ENGAGEMENT Consultants may be engaged for the minimum period required. The maximum period of engagement should not exceed two years in case of outside experts. However, in case of retired/retiring govt. servants, the period of engagements as consultants should not exceed six months. To ensure this, consultants should not be engaged for jobs which cannot be completed within a period of two years or six months, as the case may be. FEES The consolidated fee payable may be decided in each case by departments in consultation with their financial advisors after considering all the factors including the level of the post which the individual held on the date of his retirement.

4.LABOUR CONTRACTORS
Labour contractors maintain close contacts with labourers and they can provide the required number of workers at a short notice. They constitute an important source of recruitment in many industries in India. Workers are recruited through labour contractors who are themselves employees of the organization. The disadvantage of this system is that if the contractor himself decides to leave the organization, all the workers employed through him will follow suit. These are the specialist people who supply manpower to the Factory or Manufacturing plants. Through these contractors, workers are appointed on contract basis, i.e. for a particular time period. Under conditions when these contractors leave the organization, such people who are appointed have to also leave the concern. Workers are recruited through labour contractors who are themselves employees of organization. This disadvantage of this system is that if contractor leaves the organization, all the workers employed through him will also leave. Recruitment through this source has been banned for public sector units. However, this practice is still common in case of construction industry.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS
Introduction
According to Edwin B. Flippo, recruitment is the process of searching the candidates for employment and stimulating them to apply for jobs in the organization.

Recruitment is the activity that links the employers and the job seekers. A few definitions of recruitment are: 1. A process of finding and attracting capable applicants for employment. The process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applications are submitted. The result is a pool of applications from which new employees are selected. 2. It is the process to discover sources of manpower to meet the requirement of staffing schedule and to employ effective measures for attraction that manpower in adequate numbers to facilitate effective selection of an efficient workforce.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS IN AAI


The recruitment and selection is the major function of the human resources department and recruitment process is the first step towards creating the competitive strength and the recruitment strategic advantage for the organization-AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA. Recruitment process involves a systematic procedure from sourcing the candidates to arranging and conducting the interviews and requires many resources and time. The recruitment process consists of the following interrelated stages: 1.RECRUITMENT PLANNING The first stage of in the recruitment process is planning. Planning involves the translation of likely job vacancies and information about the nature of these jobs into as set of objectives or targets that specify the: 1. Number 2. Types of applicants to be contacted: this refers to the type of people to be informed about job openings. The type of people depends on the tasks and responsibilities involved and qualification and experience expected. The recruitment process begins with the human resources department receiving requisitions for recruitment from any department of the company. These contain: Posts to be filled Number of persons Duties to be performed Qualifications required

A job specification is drawn up by the business and sets out the kind of qualifications, skills, experiences and personal attributed a successful candidate should possess. It is a vital tool in assessing the suitability of job applicants and refers to the person rather than the post.

Generally the intake from outside the authority through direct recruitment will be at the following levels: (I) A E-6 Executive Cadre:

The job specification for various posts including the induction level posts will be broadly as per Annexure I-A & I-B and may be prescribed by the Competent Authority from time to time. The job specifications can be amended from time to time considering the job demand/specialization required for each cadre/discipline subject to the approval of the Board. These documents are an important part of the recruitment and selection process and provide the basis as to where the job may be advertised and whether an applicant is suitable for the post. They also help provide a framework for questions to be asked at an interview.

2. STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT
Once it is known how many and what type of recruits are required, serious considerations can be given to: i) ii) iii) iv) Technological sophistication Make or buy Special dispensation to specific categories of persons Sources of recruitment

1. Technological Sophistication This strategy is greatly influenced by the advancement of technology. The advent of computers has made it possible for employers to scan national and international application qualifications. They have given employers and job seekers a wide scope of options for initial screening. Hence to simplify the process of recruitment and to find prospective employee for their company, AAI has also entered into online recruitment inviting prospective candidates to apply for different posts online as per their qualifications by visiting the AAI websites: http://www.aai.aero/AAI/main.jsp 2. Make or buy Organizations must decide whether to hire less skilled employees and invest on training and education programmes, or they can hire skilled labour and professionals. Essentially this is the make(higher less skilled workers) or buy(hire skilled workers and professionals) decisions. However in AAI equal importance is given to both the skills of the employees as well as their trainings needs.

3. SPECIAL DISPENSATION TO SPECIFIC CATEGORIES OF PERSONS Certain categories of persons will be allowed special dispensation in appointments to direct recruitment posts as specified: EXPORTED LAND OWNERS: Individuals whose land is acquired for setting up the Authoritys Projects and who are consequently deprived of their livelihood will be given due consideration in employment against the sanctioned posts in DR quota in any group C or D posts provided they meet the prescribed speci fications in accordance with the Government policy.

DEPENDENTS OF DECEASED EMPLOYEES: The dependents of a deceased employee will be eligible for consideration for appointment in the Authority on need-cum-economic status basis against an available Direct Recruitment vacancy in any C or D Group commensurate with his/her qualifications and experience. Priority will, however, be given to departments of those employees who die as a result of an accident while on duty. The board parameters which will be considered in this regard are:i) ii) iii) iv) Income of the family of the deceased employee; Educational qualifications of the member of the deceased employee seeking employment; Number of departments; and Assets & liabilities left by the deceased employees.

The requests for compassionate will be considered even if the name of a dependent is not sponsored by the Employment Exchange or if he/she has not applied against any advertisement provided the applicant is otherwise eligible. Non-existence of an earning member in the family of the deceased employee will be an important criterion in this regard. The Competent Authority may specify any other parameters, to determine the eligibility criteria. For purposes of this concession, the dependants mean only sons (or adopted son ), unmarried daughters (or adopted daughter) or widow.

Deceased employee means an employee who dies while in Authoritys service. Compassionate appointment will not exceed 5% quota of Direct Recruitment posts in C and D grades in a recruitment year. While appointing the dependents of the deceased employee on compassionate grounds, an undertaking may be taken that would take care of the family of the deceased and failure to maintain the family may result in termination of their service by the competent authority.

OUTSTANDING SPORTS PERSONS: Consistent with the Authoritys objective of all round development of human personality and to provide encouragement to the activities and programmes of the Authority in the area of sports, sport persons of repute may be recruited with the prior approval of the Chairperson in respect of the sports in which the Authority has developed its own teams for participation in Public Sector Undertaking sports tournaments or other tournaments. Such recruitment will be made only against the sanctioned strength in DR Quota subject to the following terms and conditions:(a) Recruitment of such sports person will be made commensurate with their relevant experience and possessing the qualifications required/specified for entry to the grade to which he/she is sought to be recruited. (b) In order to be eligible for selection under this special recruitment, candidates should have represented the Country and/or state in a recognized Championship/Tournament at State, National and/or International level at least during the three years preceding the date of appointment. (c) Physical fitness of such sports persons selected for special appointment should be of the highest standard and the upper age limit shall be 25 years.

4.SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT
AAI basically uses both internal sources (i.e. promotions, transfers etc) as well as external sources of recruitment (i.e. employment exchanges, press and online advertisements etc). however AAI majority relies on the following sources of recruitment:

Employment Exchanges for posts as prescribed in the Employment


Exchanges (Compulsory Notification of Vacancies) Act, 1959 and/or Government directives issued from time to time.

Direct recruitment by advertisement in the Press/Electronic Media. By considering departmental candidates meeting the specified
recruitments

From reputed Engineering/Management Institutes by Campus interviews. Deputationists from the Centre/State Government/Union Territories and
Public Sector Undertakings.

The deputationists taken through a regular process of selection may be


considered for absorption subject to meeting the requirement of R&P Regulations.

By making reference to recognized Associations/Agencies, who maintain


rosters of suitable persons in different skills for promotion and welfare of Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes/Other Backward classes, Exservicemen, Physically Handicapped and other similar special categories.

Any other sources as approved by the Competent Authority in


exceptional circumstances.

3. SEARCHING

Search involves two steps Once a recruiting plan and strategy are worked out, the search process can begin. Search involves two steps: 1. Source Activation 2. Selling Source Activation:- sources and search methods are activated by the issuance of an employee requisition. This means that no actual recruiting takes place until line managers, have verified that a vacancy does exist or well exist. If the organization has planned well and done a good job of developing its sources and search methods, activation soon results in flood of applications and or resumes. The applications received must be screened. Those who pass have to be contracted and invited for interview. Unsuccessful applicants must sent letter for regret. Selling:- a second issue to be addressed in the searching process concerns communication. In selling the organization both the message and the media deserve attention. Message refers to the employment advertisement. With regards to media, it may be started that effectiveness of any recruiting message depends on media. Media are general some have low creditability (employment exchanges for e.g.), while other enjoy high credibility (advertisements in business magazines for e.g.). Therefore selection of a medium or media needs to be done with lot of care.

4.RELEASE OF ADVERTISEMENT
The primary aim of HR cell is to release an advertisement for filling up the vacant posts of the organization specifying the job requirements and description. After deciding upon the source or medium of recruitment, selection process begins with the release of advertisement in the newspapers or online. Advertisements for different posts are placed in business journals specifically employment news. Other than newspaper AAI also releases job vacancies in its main website encouraging qualified candidates to apply for different posts. Online advertisement on the AAI website-- http://www.aai.aero/AAI/main.jsp

5.EVALUATION AND CONTROL


Evaluation and control is necessary as considerable costs are incurred in the recruitment process. The costs generally incurred are: 1. Salaries for recruiters. 2. Management and professional time spent on preparing job description, job specifications, advertisements, agency liaison and so forth. 3. Cost of advertisement or other recruitment methods i.e. agency fees. 4. Cost of producing supportive literature. 5. Recruitment overheads and administrative expenses. 6. Cost of overtime and outsourcing while the vacancies remain unfilled. 7. Cost of recruiting suitable candidates for selection process.

Statistical information of the costs of advertisements, time taken for process, and the suitability of the candidates for consideration in the selection process should be gathered and evaluated.

SELECTION PROCESS
The process of interviewing and evaluating candidates for a specific job and selecting an individual for employment based on certain criteria. Employee selection can range from very simple process to a very simple process to a very complicated process depending on the firm hiring and the position. Certain employment laws such as anti-discrimination laws must be obeyed during employee selection.

Selection Process for Indirect Recruitment Posts:


1. RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS (Format: annexure)

It is the widely accepted device for getting information from a prospective applicant which will enable a management to make proper selection. It is a good means of collecting verifiable basic historical data from the candidate. It serves as tool for scrutiny of applications and for storing information for later reference. Its important for your job applications to be complete, correct(no errors) and accurate. Applications are filled in by the candidate interested to work in AAI. He/she is required to have the required qualifications and skills necessary for the job applied for. The candidate fills in the required details along with the necessary enclosures for proof. It is on the basis of these applications that further screening is done to eliminate unqualified, unfit and over aged candidates. It contains the following details: Personal data (name, address, sex, age) Marital status (single or married, dependents) Physical data (height, weight, health condition) Educational data (qualifications, levels of formal education) Employment data (past experience, nature of duties) Extracurricular activities data (sports/games, NCC, prizes won, leisure time activities) Reference (names of two or more people who certify the suitability of applicant to the advertised position)

2. SCRUTINY OF APPLICATIONS

Screening of application can be regarded as an integral part of SELECTION Process. The selection process will begin after the applications have been scrutinized and short listed Applications received in response to advertisements are screened only eligible applicants are called for the written test. Screening is conducted by the HR cell of AAI. The purpose of the screening is to remove from the recruitment process, at an early stage, those applicants who are visibly unqualified for the job effective screening can save a great deal of time and money. Care must be exercised, however to assure that potentially good employees are not lost and that women and minorities receive full and fair consideration and are not rejected without justification. The applications are rejected largely due to that fact that they do not qualify the requirement of the job. AAI selection programme tried to fit applicants to particular jobs i.e. right person for the right job. This selection philosophy assumes that the requirements of a given job and the characteristics of the given applicant are sufficiently unique and explicit to make an intelligent match possible between them. Screening is important for both companys point of view and that of the applicants point of view. This scrutiny is essentially a sorting process where perspective candidates are required to give necessary details about their age, qualifications, background etc on the basis of which unsuitable candidates applications are rejected. Only after careful scrutiny of the applications, the most eligible and qualified candidates should be selected for further screening.

3. ISSUE ADMIT CARD


(Format: annexure)

After the applications are scrutinized and the unqualified candidates are screened out, the next step would be to issue the admit cards to the qualified candidates. The admit card would include the candidates name, roll no, date and centre of examination and the post he/she has applied for (junior executive, manager etc), signed by the Competent Authority. The admit card is issued to the candidate by courier or online. The candidate is required to bring this admit card on the date of examination in order to write the written test. The admit card consist details regarding the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Name of the applicant Roll no. of the applicant Examination centre Date of examination Signature of AAI authority concerned

Admit card is delivered to the candidate by post/courier. It would also include general instructions for the candidates regarding the examination and its various aspects.

4. SELECTION TESTS

Selection test can be used to weed out the large number of candidates who may not be considered for the employment. Normally organization receives a large number of applications so these tests help to find out the suitable candidates having required characteristics for the position. Selection test will provide cut off point above which candidates may be called for the interview. Selection test can provide the information about the qualities and potential of the prospective employees which cannot be known through other methods including personal interviews. These tests also help for the promotion of the potential candidates. Selection tests are standardized and unbiased methods of selecting the candidates. Thus a person who is not selected on the basis of test cannot argue for the partially in selection process. Impartially is very important for organizations like AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA. The mode of selection to be generally observed for selection to posts at induction level will be as indicated below:-

An interview is a procedure designed to get information from a candidate and to assess his potential for the job being considered, on the basis of oral responses by the applicant to oral inquiries by the interviewer. Interviewer has a formal in depth conversation with the applicant to evaluate his suitability. It is one of the most important tools in the selection process. This tool is used when interviewing skilled and managerial employees; it involves two way exchange of information. The interviewer learns about the applicant and the candidate learns about the employer. Although an indispensible management tool interviews do have shortcomings. Interview helps: 1. To obtain additional information from the candidate. 2. Facilitates giving to the candidate information about the job; company, policies, etc. 3. To assess the basic suitability of the candidates. A selection interview is a type of interview designed to redict future job performance of a candidate, on the basis on applicants responses to the oral questions asked to him. The key to the usefulness of an interview depends upon the manner in which it is administered. The candidates who qualified through the interview pass through the other stages.

6. REFERENCE CHECK

Reference checking is an inquiry about job performance, usually from people identified by an applicant. Prior to making an offer, the HR administer and/or hiring manager is expected to contact at least two (2) professional references of the applicant. Information gathered during the reference check process must be retained with the search files for three (3) years following the date of the last action on the position. (e.g. start date, date candidates were notified of the position being filled). For an internal candidate, the hiring manager should take special care to ensure the application is confidential, and that contact with the employees current unit is not made until the employee is considered a finalist and references are to be checked. An applicant who refuses to sign a profile may be eliminated from further consideration for employment. An applicant who provides misleading, erroneous, or deceptive information on a profile, resume, or in an interview will be immediately eliminated from further consideration for employment and may be subject to termination. All background checks, at a minimum, will include the following: Verification of Social Security Number; County criminal records (county of current residence); Other kinds of verification checks if a particular position warrants (i.e. sex offender, educational verification, employment verification).

7. MEDICAL EXAMINATION

Certain jobs require unusual stamina, strength or tolerance of hard working conditions. A physical examination reveals whether or not a candidate possesses these qualities. It brings out deficiencies, not as a basis of rejection but as a positive aid to selective placement and as indicating restrictions on his transfer to other positions.

PURPOSE a) It gives us an indication whether a candidate is physically able to perform the job. Those who are physically unfit are rejected. b) It discovers existing disabilities and obtains a record of the employees health at the time of hiring so that question of the companys responsibilities may be settled in the event of workmens compensation. c) It prevents the employment of those who suffer from some type of contagious diseases. d) It places properly those people who are otherwise employable but those physical handicaps may necessitate assignment only to specific jobs.

Usually a medical check up involves a quick examination of the eyes, ears and throat. Bronchial weakness is looked for as an indication of nervousness, tuberculosis and hernia. It is worth noting that those whom heavy manual work is to be assigned are tested for physical health; while those who are to be placed in the office should be particularly tested for eyesight, the condition of the pulmonary system and for signs of tubercular tendencies.

8. JOB OFFER

The final step in the selection process is job offer to those applicants who have crossed all the previous hurdles. It is made through a letter of appointment. Such letter generally contains: 1. A date by which the appointee must report on duty. The appointee must get reasonable time for reporting. 2. Expected salary. 3. General instructions.

Therefore the organization sends the appointment letter to the successful candidate either after sometime depending on its time schedule.
