A Study on Welfare Amenities at HBL Power Systems Limited,
1) Rationale for the Study:
According to the planning commission In order to get the best
out of a worker in the matter of production, working conditions require
to be improved to a large extent. The worker should at least have the
means and facilities to keep himself in a state of health and efficiency.
This is primarily a question of adequate nutrition and suitable housing
conditions. The working conditions should be such as to safeguard his
health and project him against occupational hazards. The work place
should provide reasonable amenities for his essential needs. The worker
should also be equipped with the necessary technical training and a
certain level of general education.
Employee welfare is must, because people at work are affected by
what happens to them in their outside lives. Welfare is probably a matter
in which a company should take as much interest as possible. The
workers both in the industry and agriculture cannot cope with the pace
of modern life with minimum sustainable amenities. He needs an added
stimulus to keep body and soul together. Each employer depending on
his priorities gives varying degrees of importance to labor welfare. It is

0so, because the Government is not sure that all the employers are
progressive minded and will provide basic welfare measures, that it
introduces through statutory legislation from time to time, to bring about
some measures of uniformity in the basic amenities available to
industrial workers.
The concept of Labour Welfare is flexible, elastic and differs
widely with time, region, industry, social values, customs, degree of
industrialization, the general socio-economic development of the people
and the political ideologies prevailing at a particular time. It is also
moulded according to the age group, sex, socio-cultural background,
marital and economic status, educational level of the workers in various
industries. Accordingly, the concept cannot be very precisely defined.
However, efforts have been made by the expert bodies to do so, each in
his own way.
Any organization is a human grouping in which work is done for
the attainment of some goal or mission. In order to attain these goals the
organization has to assimilate and co-ordinate its resources. Some of
these resources available in the organization are men, material,
machinery and information. Human resource of the organization plays a
vital role in determining its effectiveness because most problems that
occur in organization setting are human and social rather than physical,
technical or economical. Failure to recognize this fact causes immense
loss to the enterprise.

2) Need for the Study:

The welfare activities in India are organized by the Organization,
Central Government, State Government, Trade unions and other
agencies to:

Encourage the workers and improve their standard of living.

Provide primary needs and motivate the workers to increase

their efficiency.

Develop the workers economically as well as socially.

Housing, minimum wages and other benefits are bound to

create a feeling of satisfaction among the workers and are
therefore not helpful in reducing the extent of labor turnover
and absenteeism.

Provision of good Working Conditions, Good Housing,

Medical Facilities and Educational Incentives increases the
mental efficiency and economic productivity of industrial

The need for the study is therefore useful for the development of
workers which can be activated by proactivating and improving the
labor welfare measure which implies providing them better working
conditions, such as lightening heat control, cleanliness, low noise level,
toilet and drilling water facility, canteen and rest room, health and safety
measures etc.

3) Objectives of the Study:

The proposed study will be carried by considering the following
objectives: 1. The primary objective of the study is to study the actual

various labor welfare legislations and its actual administrative
process in the implementation of labor welfare schemes.
4. To identify the areas in welfare amenities that are not meeting
the minimum desirable standards.
5. To analyse and understand workers perception towards welfare
amenities in HBL Power Systems Limited, Hyderabad.
4) Research Methodology:
Research Design:
Research Design is a specification of methods and procedures for
acquiring the requisite information. In the present study, as an over all
operational pattern as framework of the project a Descriptive Research
Design will be selected.

Methods and Tools of Data collection.

The required data will be collected in the following ways.
a. Primary Data:
The primary data in the proposed study will be collected by
administering a structure questionnaire.
Apart from the questionnaire, the method of personal observation
will be done to observe the things in close proximity.
b. Secondary Data:
The secondary data in the proposed study will be gathered from the
following sources: Printed literature supplied by the company
Text books and magazines
Downloads from internet etc.
Sampling method:
The sampling method that will be used in the proposed study is
random sampling method.
Sample size:
Out of the total employees, a sample of 50 employees will be
picked up for the proposed study. However, this may further be extended
depending upon the need and cooperation of the respondents.

5) Scope of the Study:

The major scope of the study is related to the employee Welfare
Measures viz., Health Schemes, Incentive Schemes, Allowances,
Canteen facilities, Leave Encashment Scheme, Fringe Benefits,

company for the workers through different mechanisms and how the
labor welfare is implied in the organizations to the employees and their
families, wherein the organization is benefited in the long run.
Thus the scope of the proposed study is strictly confined to the
study of the above parameters at HBL Power Systems Limited,
6) Limitations of the Study:
The following are the possible limitations in the proposed study: 1. The findings and conclusions that may be drawn cannot be
expected to be same of HBL Power Systems Limited, in other
2. The period of study is for 45 days only. This is also one of the
limitations in the proposed study.
3. The cooperation of the employees is vital in this project,
without whose cooperation the task become more difficult.

4. The data collection and conclusions therein are purely

dependent upon the quality of data supplied by the respondents
such as workers, employees etc. working in HBL Power
Systems Limited, Hyderabad unit.

7) Period of Study:
The study will be conducted for a period of approximately 45
days. However, depending upon the need and progress of the study this
period may be further extended or reduced.

8) Expected Contribution from the study:

Labour welfare may be viewed as a total concept, as a social concept
and as a relative concept. The total concept is a desirable state of
existence involving the physical, mental, moral and emotional well
-being. These four elements together constitute the structure of welfare,
on which its totality is based. The social concept of welfare implies the
welfare for man, his family and his community. All these three aspects
are inter-related and work together in a three-dimensional approach.
The relative concept of welfare implies the welfare is relative in time
and place. It is a dynamic and flexible concept and hence its meaning
and content differ from time to time.
The proposed project will be used to study the present Welfare
Amenities provided to workers of the HBL Power Systems Limited,

and provide suggestions to improve the current welfare amenities to the

satisfaction of the workers and increasing the morale and productivity
