Policy for its implementation in its command area. Such activities are
normally taken up in the peripheral villages within a distance of 8km from
the mines. The key areas of the referred community development and
welfare activities, undertaken on the annual basis in the peripheral
villages around the mines are broadly as under:-
- Creation of community assets (infrastructure) like provision for
drinking water, construction of school buildings, check dams,
village roads/ linked roads and culverts, dispensary and health
center, community centers, market place etc.

income generation programmes, entreurship development
programme, literacy programme, adult education etc.
- Awareness programmes and community activities like health camp,
medical aids, family planning camps, immunization camp, and eye
checkup camp etc.
- Sports and Cultural Activities
- Plantation
The beneficiaries of community development activities are normally
inhabitants living in the periphery normally within a distance of 8
km from the mine boundary or any other location as may be

decided by the community development committee in consultation
with the State Government authorities.

Research is the process of systematic and in-depth study or search for any
particular topic, subject or area of investigation, backed by collection,

compilation, presentation and interpretation of relevant details or data.
Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem.
It may be understood as a science of studying how research is done
Research may develop hypothesis and test it. In it we study the various
steps that are generally adopted by the researcher in studying his research
problem along with the logic behind them.
Research must be based on fact observable data forms a sound basis for
research inductive investigation lead better support to research finding for
analyzing facts a scientific methodology of analysis must be developed and
result interpreted logically.
It is necessary for the researcher to know not only the research method
or techniques but also the methodology. Thus, when we talk of research
methodology we not only talk of the research methods but also consider the
logic behind the methods we use in the context of our research study and
explain why we are using a particular method or technique and why we are
not using others so that research results are capable of being evaluated
either by the researcher himself or by others.
Research problems would result in certain conclusions by means of logical
analysis which the decision-maker may use for his action or solution.

1) To study the welfare facilities provided to employees by Nagpur Area
Office WCL.
2) To study how the organization motivate the employees by identifying
and satisfying their unsatisfied needs.

3) To know which special facilities are provided to reserved class
categories like SC, ST, OBC etc.. by the organization.

Employees of Nagpur area office WCL are found to be satisfied with the
welfare facilities provided by their organization.

In research process, the first and foremost step is selecting and defining a
research problem. A researcher should at first find the problem. Then he
should formulate it so that it becomes susceptible to research. For a
systematic presentation, the process of research may be classified under
three stages- primary stage, secondary stage, and the tertiary stage.
The primary stage includes:-
i) Observation
ii) Interest
iii) Formulating research problem
iv) Documentation
v) Preparation of a bibliography &
vi) Research design

The secondary stage includes:-

i) Project planning
ii) Data collection
iii) Analysis of data
iv) Testing of hypothesis
v) Interpretation
vi) Questionnaire preparation

The tertiary stage includes:-

i) Report writing
ii) Observation, suggestions, and conclusions.
iii) Preparation of a bibliography

Research starts with observation, which leads to curiosity to learn
about what has been observed. While observation leads to research
research results in elaborate observations and conclusions; or even
further research.
The observation method is widely used mainly because of its
simplicity, usefulness in the framing of hypothesis, its accuracy; the
possibility of getting convincing results, the possibility of the test of
validity etc. to be precise, observation tends to be the basic of any

The observation of certain occurrences creates an interest and
inquisitiveness in the mind of the research to study it future. This is the
basis of interest to study the subject matter of observation. The
interest is the guiding force behind any research.


The research problem undertaken for study must be carefully
selected. The problem must be defined thoroughly and should be framed
into meaningful terms from the analytical point of view. The area of
working must be decided.
I have defined my problem as “To study the welfare facilities
provided to employees by Nagpur Area Office WCL. I had got the
information from the HOD of HR department and from some of the
Industrial progress largely depend on committee labour force the
benefits which go under this nomenclature are of great importance to
the employee and which he is enable to secure by himself. The scheme

of labour welfare may be regarded as a wise investment which should on
usually does brings profitable return in the form of greater efficiency.
Thus we can say that welfare facilities are the base of effective and
efficient working of the employees in the organization in my opinion
welfare has a great importance in the organization.

The documentary source is an important source of information for a
researcher. A document is any thing in writing a record, files or diaries,
published or unpublished- which can be extracted and used in research.
It is a very valuable source of information for a research. Documentation
is the process of collecting & extracting the documents which are
relevant to research.

After formulating the problem the research design has to be
prepared. Preparation of research design involves selection of means of
obtaining information, time available for research and selection of
method of tabulation & presentation of data.
The research of my project is descriptive study. I have obtained
information by the HOD of the HR Department and some of the
employees of the organization & also from annual reports of company,
newspapers, magazines and websites.

Project planning is the first step in actually conducting & directing a
research project. It is one of the most important tasks of a researcher.
This includes formulation of the research objectives & goals and
determining ways of achieving them.

Data collection is one of the most important aspects of research. For
the success of any project accurate data is very important and

necessary. The information collected through research methodology
must be accurate and relevant.
The data collection method can be classified into two methods:-
- Primary Data
- Secondary Data
- Primary Data:
Data collected by a researcher is known as primary data. It is
collected by a person for his own use obtained from findings. This is
considered as first hand information. This is that data which is
collected by us to meet our own specific purpose. The data is
collected by the means of questionnaire filled in by the employees
at different posts of Nagpur area office. This method of data
collection is very popular particularly in big organizations.
Survey Method
The employees of the organization.

- Secondary Data:
Secondary data means data that are already available ie, they refer
to data which has already been collected and analyzed by some
one else. This type of data information can also be used by the
researcher for his use as second hand information sources through
which secondary data can be collected.
Secondary data may either be published data or unpublished data.
Published data used here is from:-
i) Magazines
ii) Annual reports of the company
iii) Newspapers etc.
The sources of unpublished data are diaries, letters, unpublished
internal records made available by staff members etc.

Thus, the primary source of data collection was the interview and
questionnaire methods. The secondary data was collected through
magazines, annual reports of the company, internal records of the
organization and through websites.

Once the collection of data is complete, it should be analyzed and
processed through classification tabulation etc in accordance with
the subject matter. A careful planning of the analytical framework
should therefore be done by the researcher. Data analysis is carried
out by arranging the data received by the employees in an excel
sheet. This data is then converted into graphical forms. Pie charts
have also been used for the tabulation and interpretation of data

After analyzing the data hypothesis testing is done. It will result in
either accepting the hypothesis or rejecting it.

After testing the hypothesis the researcher comes out with his
conclusions. The explanation of theory can also be considered as

The basic requisite of any research study is the appropriate data
which can be collected with the help of a schedule or a
questionnaire. With the help of questionnaire it is easy to determine
the satisfaction level of so many employees in the organization.

The sampling size on which the analysis is based is 72.

The sampling technique used for carrying out this study is RANDOM
sampling technique.


Finally the researcher has to prepare a final report along with
conclusion and suggestions.

At the end of any research report a bibliography is generally
added. This is the list of books, publications, periodicals, journals,
reports, etc which are used by the researcher in connection with
the study.
