AXIOMATIC TRUTH –DISCIPLINE IN THE ORGANISATION1. INTRODUCTION
:Discipline is the force that prompts an individual or a group to observe the rules,regulations and procedures which are deemed to be necessary for the attainment of anobjective, it is force or fear of force which restrains an individual or a group from doingthings which are deemed to be destructive of objective. It is also the exercise of restraintor the enforcement of penalties of the violation of group regulations. It is like anaxiomatic truth that no organization can flourish without proper and conduciveatmosphere of discipline.Discipline is defined in dictionary meaning as “as mode of life in accordance with rules”.The concept of industrial discipline arises from this definition while the purpose is toensure that order and place are preserved in an organization by enforcing a mode of lifein accordance with the laid down rules.The aims and objects of discipline are :
To obtain a willing acceptance of the rules, regulations and procedures of anorganization so that organizational goals may be achieved.
To import any element of certainty despite several differences in informalbehavioural patterns and other related changes in an organization.
To develop the spirit of tolerance among employees and a desire to makeadjustments.
To give an seek direction and responsibility.
To create an atmosphere of respect for the human personality and relations, and
To increase the working efficiency and morale of the employees so that theirproductivity is stepped up, the cost of production brought down, and the quality ofproduction improved.Discipline in general speaking in three ways.
The first one is known as self-discipline:-It refers to one’s efforts at self-control for the purposes of adjusting oneself to certainneeds and demands. This form of discipline is bases on psychological principles.First, punishment seldom produces the desired results, often it producesundesirable results. Second, a self-respecting person tends to be a better that onewho is not.

The Second one is Principle is the necessary condition of orderly behaviour:-This refers to discipline as the condition which must exist for any orderly behaviourin an organization through efforts that build up morale and high spirits.
The Third principle considers discipline as a judicious process:-Based on training and punishment. Its purpose is not a change past behaviour butto prevent its recurrence in future. It is a process of training a worker so that he candevelop self-control and can become more effective in his work.Discipline, in part, is an attitude of mind, product of culture and particular environmentwhich impels an individual to willingly co-operate in the observance of the rules of theorganization to which he belongs. This conformity and willingness to work for theobjective of his organization have to come from within, through at times they may haveto imposed by an external agency. To get the things in the organization in a successfulattainment of goals, it may be punitive or a big stick approach which imposes a penaltyor punishment, if the rules and regulation, which have been laid down by anorganization, are ignored or disobeyed.
2. CAUSE OF INDESCIPLINE
:Before coming to the important aspect of the ways to ensure the maintenance ofdiscipline, it is necessary to know the causes of indiscipline. Some of the causes thathave been enumerated are:A) Job Satisfaction :Non-placement of right person on the right job which is suitable forhis qualification, experience and training.B) Lack of proper Training :Undesirable behaviour of senior officials, who may have set a pattern of behaviourwhich they expect their subordinates to follow, but their expectations are belied,and an infringement of rules follows.C) Lack of proper Communication Skills:Lack of upward communication, as result of which the thoughts, feelings and reactionsof employees cannot be conveyed to the top management. This generally leadsto aggressive or rebellious behaviour.
