Organisation Study on IREL Chavara 10DC School of Management and Technology | TrivandrumINTRODUTIONEach and every organisation has its own importance in the economic wealth of the nation. Different organisation meets different needs of people by offering different products and services. Due to globalisation the world has changed into a global village. In this fast and changing business scenario, it is imperative for every entrepreneur to have a vivid understanding of the functional application of the new age business. As a part of the academic curriculum each student has to undertake an organisational study to get practical exposure. This study is conducted at Indian Rare Earths Limited, Chavara.IREL Chavara is located 10 km north of Kerala and 85 km from Trivandrum, capital of Kerala and 135 by road from Cochin is perhaps blessed with the best mineral sand deposit of the country. The plant operates on a mining area containing as high as 40% heavy minerals and extending over a length of 22 kms in the belt of Neendakara and Kayamkulam.The deposit is quite rich with respect to Ilmenite, Rutile and Zircon and the mineral Ilmenite happens to be of weathered variety analysing 60% Titanium Dioxide (TiO2).

Organisation Study on IREL Chavara 12DC School of Management and Technology | TrivandrumSCOPE OF THE STUDYThe scope of the study is to know about the organisation, its structure, the functions performed by various departments and to know the overall performance of the organisation. The study will help the management students to get a practical exposure.METHODOLOGYBoth primary and secondary data were used for this study.1. Primary Data:-The primary data can be obtained either through observation or through direct communication with respondents in one form or another or through personal interviews. There are several methods for collecting primary data. They are observation method, interview method, through questionnaire, through schedule etc. Here primary data were obtained from direct interviews made on with managers, officers and workers of the firm.2. Secondary Data:-Secondary data means data that are already available ie: - they refer to the data which have already been collected by someone else. Here secondary data were collected from company brouchers, manuals and other recordsLIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY The study is limited to my experience and knowledge. Lack of availability of secondary data from published journals and reports. Secrecy of the organisation prevents them from giving some of the details regarding the firm. Employees were busy in their work so they could not give more information. There may be errors due to the bias of the respondents. Time is a major limitation in the course of study. 13.
