INTRODUCTION

Welfare means faring or doing well. it is a comprehensive term , and refers to the physical, mental, moral and emotional well-being of an individual. Further, the welfare is a relative concept, relative in time and Space, it, therefore varies from time to time and from country to country.

Employee welfare, also referred to as betterment work for employees, relates to taking care of the well-being of workers by employers, trade unionsand government and non government agencies. It is rather difficult to define the term employee welfare

precisely because of the relatively of the concept. Reported the Royal commission on Employee. Employee welfare is comprehensive terms including various sources Facilities and amenities provided to employee for their betterment. These facilities generally do not result in monetary to the employees. Welfare facilities may be provided not only by employees but also by the government trade unions and other agencies too.

The central government has taken special interest in employee welfare activities after the emergence of India as a republic. The government has enacted various laws from time to time to promote the welfare activities.

CEMENT INDUSTRY

INTRODUCTION

Cement is a key infrastructure industry. It has been decontrolled from price and distribution on 1st March, 1989 and deli censed on 25th July, 1991. However, the

performance of the industry and prices of cement are monitored regularly. The constraints faced by the industry are reviewed in the Infrastructure Coordination Committee meetings held in the Cabinet Secretariat under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Coordination). performance is also reviewed by the Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure. Its

Capacity and Production

The cement industry comprises of 125 large cement plants with an installed capacity of 148.28 million tonnes and more than 300 mini cement plants with an estimated capacity of 11.10 million tonnes per annum. The Cement Corporation of India, which is a Central There are 10 large cement plants owned by

Public Sector Undertaking, has 10 units. various State Governments. 159.38 million tones.

The total installed capacity in the country as a whole is

Actual cement production in 2002-03 was 116.35 million tones as

against a production of 106.90 million tones in 2001-02, registering a growth rate of 8.84%. Keeping in view the trend of growth of the industry in previous years, a production target of 126 million tones has been fixed for the year 2003-04. During the period AprilJune 2003, a production (provisional) was 31.30 million tones. The industry has achieved a growth rate of 4.86 per cent during this period. 2

Exports
Apart from meeting the entire domestic demand, the industry is also exporting cement and clinker. The export of cement during 2001-02 and 2003-04 was 5.14 million tones and

6.92 million tones respectively. Export during April-May, 2003 was 1.35 million tones. Major exporters were Gujarat Ambuja Cements Ltd. and L&T Ltd.

Recommendations on Cement Industry
For the development of the cement industry ‘Working Group on Cement Industry’ was constituted by the Planning Commission for the formulation of X Five Year Plan. The Working Group has projected a growth rate of 10% for the cement industry during the plan period and has projected creation of additional capacity of 40-62 million tones mainly through expansion of existing plants. The Working Group has identified following thrust areas for improving demand for cement; (i) (ii) (iii) Further push to housing development programmers; Promotion of concrete Highways and roads; and Use of ready-mix concrete in large infrastructure projects.

Further, in order to improve global competitiveness of the Indian Cement Industry, the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion commissioned a study on the global competitiveness of the Indian Industry through an organization of international repute, viz. KPMG Consultancy Pvt. Ltd. The report submitted by the organization has made several recommendations for making the Indian Cement Industry more competitive in the international market. The recommendations are under consideration.

Technological change
Cement industry has made tremendous strides in technological up gradation and assimilation of latest technology. At present ninety three per cent of the total capacity in the industry is based on modern and environment-friendly dry process technology and only seven per cent of the capacity is based on old wet and semi-dry process technology. There is tremendous scope for waste heat recovery in cement plants and thereby reduction in emission level. One project for co-generation of power utilizing waste heat in an Indian cement plant is being implemented with Japanese assistance under Green Aid Plan. The induction of advanced technology has helped the industry immensely to conserve energy and fuel and to save materials substantially. India is also producing different varieties of cement like Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC), Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), Portland Blast Furnace Slag Cement (PBFS), Oil Well Cement, Rapid Hardening Portland Cement, Sulphate Resisting Portland Cement, White Cement etc. Production of these varieties of cement conform to the BIS Specifications. It is worth mentioning that some cement plants have set up dedicated jetties for promoting bulk transportation and export.

Some employees had problem in under standing the questions were I have to Explain them. 4. which forms a basis for analysis. For detailed study.LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY : They were no significant limitations while conducting the survey but 1. which took a lot of time. 3. Duration of the project study is very limited which is not sufficient 2.

A real beginning was. Under this policy. By the time the plant started. An event of significant importance from the long term point of view has been the process of consolidation and measures and acquisitions witnessed in the cement industry 10 . In 1997.INDUSTRY PROFILE CEMENT INDUSTRY Manufacturing of the cement was first started in madras in 1904. The government had a complete control on the production. made in 1912-1930 when three companies were formed. This provided an initial momentum for investment in the industry. The real impetus was provided when partial decontrol was announced in 1982. all existing cement units were required to give up to 66. distribution and price of cement and this damped the growth of the cement industry.28 million tones. the government announced that 12 percent post tax returned on net worth was fairy enough and retention prices would be fixed to ensure it. there were 21 factories with an annually capacity of 3. The balance production was treated ‘non levy cement’ and was allowed to be sold in the market at the ruling prices. however.6 percent of there installed capacity as levy at controlled price.

The leaders are now finding economical to accrue an existing under ill-managed company rather than to float a new company. The demand for cement is expected to reach 109 million tones during the terminal year of the ninth plan based on 8. The capacity and production targets for the year 2005-06 are placed at 135 million tones and 113 million tones respectively. CEMENT INDUSTRY IN INDIA India cement industry the fourth largest in the world. when construction was planned the consumer had to prepare to get cement.18. The cement industry was one of the few industries liberalized in 1980’s. with a turnover of Rs.5 percent annual average growth rate. After observing the healthy development occurred because of the partial decontrol. the government of India announced total decontrol of cement companies were free to sell there production at what ever the price the market would bear July 1991. The generated tremendous interests and within a decade nearly forty million tones capacity was added.during recent period. Enjoying the status of being the first industry to be liberalized 16 years ago. improved the availability of the cement. Strain of getting cement permit had disappeared. the This Also in the 11 . even 6 to 8 months in advance and therefore he had to apply and wait for the permit. which checked price raise. the government of India announced delicensing of cement industry its impact can be seen from rapid changes in cement industry.000 crores comprising 59 companies with 117large companies and above 311 mini companies. But now. Before 1982. competition among the players improved the quality of cement.

CEMENT INDUSTRY IN ANDHRA PRADESH Cement industry is the most important and the largest expending industry in Andhra Pradesh.e. cement is available at the country. cement corporation of India plants situated in Adilabad and Tandur in Ranga reddy districts. 1998.situation has tremendously changed. Cuddappah which are having total lime stone reserves. It plays a vital role in development of state. there are 8 large scale cement units with an installed capacity of 16 million tones and 24 mini cement ad grinding units with an installed capacity of three million tones producing various types of cement in Andhra Pradesh. There were two cement plants opened. one was at Vijayawada and the another was associated cement company’s plant in Tadepally. Andhra Pradesh is having two lime stone deposits clusters viz. In these 18 large cement plants. Andhra Pradesh cement industry started in 1939. In short. only two cement units under public sector corporation i. Out of approximate 90000 about 30000 million tones are available in Andhra Pradesh which account for 34 percent in the total limestone deposits. from pillar to post to get cement. the Andhra Pradesh total major cement units installed capacity was only 12.. As on 31st march 1998. Guntur district in 1939. The state stands first in the country so far as limestone deposits are concerned. There are major and 11 mini cement plants situated in Nalgonda districts. Nalgonda. As on 31st March. The entire Andhra Pradesh cement industry concentrated in the districts of Adilabad. Andhra Pradesh is having all the necessary natural resources required to produce cement in large quantities. yerraguntala and Nalgonda. consumer today do not have to run..

29% and 8% respectively in the year 1996-97.87 million tones.5 million tones. Andhra Pradesh cement industry’s performance increase its 5. Visakha cement plants started there operations with installed capacities of 2 and 1 million tones and the existent market leader Raasi cements limited. This percentage increase is very low when compared to the national average i.87 million tones and further the consumption increased to 5. One more reason for this type of low growth rate was number of new plants and the existing plants. The cement configuration in the state has been observing steady growth.e. which were increasing their capacities started there production in various parts of the country the cement exports from Andhra Pradesh observing on 13 ..5% because in this period there is no production activity from the newly erected plants as well as the existing plants which are increased there installed capacity.5 million tones where as the mini cement plants only producing the approximate 1. By the end of this year the total Andhra Pradesh cement industries installed capacity has reached to 18. 8. The mini cement plants sector also having an installed capacity of 2. The total production of entire Andhra Pradesh cement industry is approximate 12 million tones. Expanding there capacity with another 20 million tones. As far as production and consumption is concurrent. In 1996-97 the cement consumption was only 4.million tones and this figure increased to 16 million tones at the end of this year because two major units Larsen and Turbo. The cement consumption of Andhra Pradesh is only 6 million tones. In this the major cement plants contribution was 10.5 million tones. In 1997-98 and this figure has increased to 7 million tones by the end of 1998 because of the various developmental program taken up by the state government and the industry’s dynamic promotional activities.58 million tones.

PROBLEMS OF CEMENT INDUSTRY The above brief discussion shows that the cement scenario has undergone a sea change.000 tones of cement exported to Burma from Visakhapatnam. BURDEN OF HIGH TARIFFS The cement industry is facing high tariffs. In 1992-93. royalty lime stone and coal etc the excise duty on cement has been steadily rising. 35% of the retail price of cement and 47% of the ex. 14 . there is only 10. the total levies on cement per tone amount to as much as 66. After staring the exports in the year 1992-93.1996 the excise collection from the cement industry amounted to Rs. The main problems of the cement industry are outlined below.from that of shortages and premiums just few years ago to that of surplus production now. The effective burden on cement amounts to as much as Rs. after that a steady decreasing situation observed in the exports.200 tones exported to the Bangladesh and some other countries and this exports figure increased to 1. unremunarative prices and deepening financial crisis. However this surplus production has brought in its wake new problems like cut throat competition.35000 tones in 1993-94.5% of the total excise in that year according to the development council to the cement industry. This is much higher as compared to the burden in the other countries making the Indian cement industry internationally uncompetitive.extraordinary fluctuations. sales tax.242 core which was 5. the first two years observed some significant growth. high excise duty.

There is a severe shortage of coal in the cement industry. To cope with the problem of power shortage. the emphasis on imports of coal is now increasing.2. E & F grades of coal are supplied to these units. south and west India. On an average 250kg of coal is required to produce 1 tone of cement. This is all the more so as the production of cement is a continues process requiring uninterrupted power supply to operate efficiently. However this option in addition to involving expenditure of foreign exchange resources. POOR QUALITY OF COAL Coal is an important input in the cement industry and accounts for 15 – 20 % of cash expenses in the manufacture of cement. 3. Power cuts. cement companies have been obliged is to make heavy investments in captive power generation and also auxiliary generation in wind forms. The ash cement in Indian coal is very high and this restricts production. To meet the twin problems of shortage of coal and poor quality of coal (due to high ash contents). Coal in India has to be moved over long distances of 1000 to 12000 km to some plants in north. THE POWER SHORTAGE Power is another important requirement and along with coal forms 40 percent of the total cost. unsteady and inadequate power supply from state electricity boards have created serious problems for cement units. also places those cement plants disadvantage which are located far from ports as they have to incur extra costs for doubling handling and freight. particularly in plants located in coastal areas. 15 . The quality of coal supplied to cement units is also highly unsatisfactory as only D .

4. the government was forced to cut down on a wide range of developmental activities. The industry predominately depends on railways. cement dispatches by railway declined over the years. the demand for cement was mainly dependent on government spending as the government with a 40 percent off take was the single largest consumer of cement. in the eastern region 64. The Indian railway has introduced ‘Own your wagon scheme’ where in cement companies have been allowed to purchase wagons. in western region 91. This resulted in a demand In recent years the quality of liberalization and the opening up of the infrastructure sector to the private sector and the foreign sector. However. constraint. have given new hopes of substantial expansion in demand of cement.9 percent.8 percent. However the increase distribution cost is forcing companies to pass costs to the customers. UNDER UTILIZATION OF CAPACITY Under utilization of capacity is a recurrent future of cement industry.2 16 . 5. but due to shortage of wagons. due to financial constraints. DEMAND CONSTRAINTS Till the year 1990-91. This has lead to some marginal improvement and has enabled the cement companies to tide over distribution bottlenecks. TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS Transportation costs make up around 20 percent of the total cement price. A study conducted by economic times bureau on capacity utilization of cement plants in the northern region was 72.

One of the main factors according for low capacity utilization in this region has been the demand constraint.A): Cement Manufacturing Association is the apex body of Cement manufactures in India. Both the Private and Public Sector cement units its members. It is registered under the Societies Registration Act with its registered office in New Delhi and branch office Mumbai. 56 percent of the cement plants were employing the uneconomical wet processing.  To protect the Consumer interest 17 .

CEMENT TECHNOLOGY In 1986.M. there obsolete technology resulted in wastage of over 2. these plants had a high cost of production not only this? On the basis of the cement production of 33 million tones achieved in 1985-86. In recent year there has been a gradual shift from wet to modern. established in 1961 with 17 member companies. and 800 million tones of electricity every year.
