compensation, welfare use, and the contribution made by employee under such voluntary schemes as cater for the post retirement Medical, educational cultural and recreational needs of workmen. The form also includes the monetary equivalent of free lighting, water, fuel etc., which are provided for workers and subsidized housing and related services. Fringe benefit is primarily a means in the direction of ensuring, maintaining and increasing the income of the employees. It is a benefit, which is of value to them and their families in so far as it materially increases their retirement. Objectives of Fringe Benefits a) To keep in line with the prevailing practice of offering benefits and services, which are, give by similar concerns. b) To recruit and retain the but personnel

To improve and furnish the organizational image in the eyes of the public with a view to improving it marked position and bringing about product acceptance by it.


To recognize the official trade unions bargaining strength for a strong trade union generally constrains an employees to adopt a sound benefits and service programme for his employee.

Fringe Benefits Satisfy 3 Goals 1) Social Goal In the words of the Philadelphia charter 1944 Labour is not a commodity. It is entitled to a fair deal as an active participant in any programmes of economic development and social reconstruction. Article 43 of the continuation of India provides. All workers should be given a living wage, conditions of works on Ensuring decent standard of life and fuller enjoyment to ensure social and cultural opportunities. 2) Human Relation Goal The management through motivation tries to develop and maintain Human relations is Mutual interest, individual differences, motivation and human dignity. 3) Macro Economic Goal For growth and stability in the economy of a country. Fringe benefits do provide protection, during periods of contingencies of life, for training and development of the employee and for good working conditions and assistance to supplement their main income,

opportunities for social interaction through cultural recreational facilities etc., Types of Fringe Benefits Fringe benefits have been clarified as From the standpoint of account it is clarified in to 3 categories. 1. 2. As payment for time the job embracing over time payment Payment for time not on the job involving paid holidays, vacations, sick leave 3. Payment for varied benefits such as insurance, pension, meals, Bonuses etc., Fringe Benefits are also Categorized as Legally required benefits include a) b) Social security and medical care Unemployment compensation.

Fringe benefits in India When the employees federation of India conducted a study of fringe benefits in this country, it was revealed that, in 1960 981 companies, which were included in the surrey paid a little our Rs. 2,148.3 million in wages and fringe benefits And latter was about 21.4% total wages bill in that year. The fringe benefits were high in the mining (24.84% of the wage bill) and plantation inquiries (24.3% of the wage bill) and were

comparatively low in the manufacturing sector (19.99 % of the wage bill). Statutory Fringe Benefits These benefits are generally social security and includes gratuity and pension payments, employers contribution to the employees P.F. A/c and health insurance scheme. The employees contribution to statutory provident fund

constitutes by far the largest item totem of expenditure accounting for 4.25% of total wage bill in the plantations, mining and manufacturing industries. The expenditure on the employees state insurance

contribution by manufacturing industries was 0.36% the gratuity A/c was 0.59%. Voluntary Benefits Retirement Benefits, medical care compensation for injuries and disablement subsidized food and housing, educational and cultural facilities, payment on life insurance premier the maintenance of canteens, cafeterias, assistance of co operatic societies these are voluntarily offered by employees.

The expenditure on these benefits accounted for 9.40% of the total wage bill in the plantation industry against 3.74% and 4.12% in the mining and manufacturing industries respectively. In the manufacturing industries nearly two third o f the benefits were in the form of profit and bonus of payments for time worked and of contribution by employees to social security benefits. In the plantation and mining industries, however this percentage was 57% and slightly more than 50 respectively. Problem Raised by Benefits Programmes Charge of Paternalism When too many benefits and services are offered to employees, a feeling develops that employers and playing the role of parents the workers are looked upon as their children. Executive Expenditure The administration of these benefits and services in a fairly costly attain involving large outlays of direct and indirect financial expenditure. Fade become Fashionable With the introduction of these benefits and services in one company, other concern with one another to introduce to then as well

credit unions and severance pay are examples of benefits which were once considered to be novel but are now commonplace in industry.

Maintenance of Leaded Productions Workers Increase in benefits and service, employees, particularly when they are not very productive tend to stick to their jobs and are not interested in changing them. Neighed of other Personnel Funct ions When a management becomes more concerned about the provision and aduen of benefits services it often pays very little attention to other as parts of personnel programmes. The relationship between a companies benefits and service programmes as employees motivation for increased production is somewhat weak.

During emergency medical aid is provided for most of the employees. 4. Group insurance scheme is available in the company and covered a life of all employees. 5. It is very sorry to note that the company is running a canteen with poor quality and some times with poor quality and some times very poor quality of food stuff. 6.

Promotion to higher status is considered by counting the experience is the particular trade and some time very rarely higher education place a part.

organisation. 9. The uniform supplied by the company to the employees are also satisfying most of the employees. 10. Loan and advances not properly paid to the employees and rules and regulation on this category an not followed clearly.

Chapter -VII SUGGESTION AND RECOMMENDATION Based on the findings arrived through analysis the following suggestion are reported. 1. It is strongly recommended that the company should take immediate step in constructing wage fixation in comparison with all other competition of the same industries. 2. It is suggested that the company should construct more number of quarters in apartment system to provide residence to all employees to that the morale will get improved. 3. Medical aid is an important factor for human being whether he is new employees or serviced employee. Therefore its suggested that the management should not show partiality in giving medical aid to their employee. 4. It is strongly recommended that the company should remodeled the canteen and try to make available the food stuffs with good quality and reasonable price.


Though promotion is given on the basis of the number of years of services advisable to maintain the morale of the employees, the modern technique such as performance appraisal. Training and development as also should be used in considering promotion.


It is suggested to relax the norms regarding loans and advance payable to employees during emergency.


Nowadays relaxation and recreation are important factors for hard working employee. After a continuous hard work in the factory through out the year the employee may like to go for with their family member for week or ten days. It is suggested that the company may consider ten days leave with full pay and some allowances for tour.


It is suggested that the company may gives advance for purchasing a vehicle especially two wheeler to employees.

It is very hard to know a family without a wheeler in these days.

Chapter - VIII CONCLUSION In general the opinion about the company is not providing required fringe benefits to their employees. Fringe benefits are very strong motivation and by various studies conducted by India, the companies, which are reputed, are allowing lot of fringe benefits to their employees. Therefore it is hoped that the company may implement some of the suggestion and recommendation made by this study report and much towards a reputation.
