Working capital is the capital required for maintenance of day-to-day business operations. The present day competitive market environment calls for an efficient management of working capital. The reason for this is attributed to the fact that an ineffective working capital management may force the firm to stop its business operations, may even lead to bankruptcy. Hence the goal of working capital management is not just concerned with the management of current assets & current liabilities but also in maintaining a satisfactory level of working capital. Holding of current assets in substantial amount strengthens the liquidity position & reduces the riskiness but only at the expense of profitability. Therefore achieving risk-return trade off is significant in holding of current assets. While cash outflows are predictable it runs contrary in case of cash inflows. Sales program of any business concern does not bring back cash immediately. There is a time lag that exists between sale of goods & sales realization. The capital requirement during this time lag is maintained by working capital in the form of current assets. The whole process of this conversion is explained by the operating cycle concept. This study gives in detail the working capital management practices in BHEL. Management of each current asset, namely inventory management, cash management, accounts receivable management is studied permanent to BHEL. Similarly management of accounts payable is studied to understand the managing of current liabilities. A part from this concept of operating cycle is studied. The research methodology adopted for this study is mainly from secondary sources of data which include annual reports of BHEL, & website of the company. The use of primary sources is limited to interviews with few of the employees in finance department. The study of working capital management has shown that BHEL has a strong working capital position. The company is also enjoying reasonable profits. BHEL has corporate tie up with maximum leading Banks in India for providing short and medium term finance to the company. For financial requirement of projects outside India, BHEL has arranged for ex funds. BHEL sales position is also very good. Its excellent performance is attributed to reduced cost of product The overall position of BHEL is good & the same is expected by continuum of existing management policies, checking exchange rate risk, competing with domestic and global players in terms of quality & quantity.
IntroductionCapital is essential for the setting up and smooth running of any business. Investments made on fixed assets will yield excess cash inflows apart from the payback amount and is spread over a longer period of time. Hence the cash inflows (or) benefits associated are not immediate7NEW DELHI INSTITUTION OF MANAGEMENT
but are expected in the future. Cash inflows & outflows occur on a continuous basis in case of current assets. Credit forms an essential feature in the business (credit given to customers & credit from suppliers). Since there is some time lag from the time of sales & sales realization current assets & current liabilities, which together constitute the net working capital, supports the business in its normal of operations. This calls for an efficient management of working capital. The policies, procedures and measures taken for managing of working capital gain further importance in an organization like BHEL where the working capital requirements runs in crores of rupees. Any mismanagement on the part of authority will not just cause loss but may even impair business operations. It is in this context working capital has gained importance. The growth of any organization depends on overall performance of all the departments. A firms financial performance reflects its strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the organization with respect to profits earned, investments, sales realization, turnover, turn on investment, net worth of capital. Efficient management of financial resources and analysis of financial results are prerequisite for success of an enterprise. In that working capital management is one of the major areas of financial management. Managing of working capital implies managing of current assets of the company like cash, inventory, accounts receivable, loans and advances and current liabilities like sundry creditors, interest payment and provision.
