New Image
The company, over the last decade has successfully changed its image from a scooter
manufacturer to a two wheeler manufacturer, product range ranging from Scooterettes to
Scooters to Motorcycle. Its real growth in numbers has come in the last 4 years after
successful introduction of a few models in the motorcycle segment.

The company is headed by Rahul Bajaj who is worth more than US$1.5 billion.

14
India has the largest number of two wheelers in the world with 41.6 million
vehicles. India has a mix of 30 percent automobiles and 70 percent two wheelers in the
country. India was the second largest two wheeler manufacturer in the world starting in the
1950’s with the birth of Automobile Products of India (API) that manufactured scooters.
API manufactured the Lambrettas but, another company, Bajaj Auto Ltd. surpassed API
and remained through the turn of the century from its association with Piaggio of Italy
(manufacturer of Vespa).

15
The license raj that existed between the1940s to1980s in India, did not allow foreign
companies to enter the market and imports were tightly controlled. This regulatory maze,
before the economic liberalization, made business easier for local players to have a seller’s
market. Customers in India were forced to wait 12 years to buy a scooter from Bajaj. The
CEO of Bajaj commented that he did not need a marketing department, only a dispatch
department. By the year 1990, Bajaj had a waiting list that was twenty-six times its annual
output for scooters.

The motorcycle segment had the same long wait times with three manufacturers; Royal
Enfield, Ideal Jawa, and Escorts. Royal Enfield made a 350cc Bullet with the only four-
stroke engine at that time and took the higher end of the market but, there was little
competition for their customers. Ideal Jawa and Escorts took the middle and lower end of
the market respectively.

In the mid-1980s, the Indian government regulations changed and permitted foreign
companies to enter the Indian market through minority joint ventures. The two-wheeler
market changed with four Indo-Japanese joint ventures: Hero Honda, TVS Suzuki, Bajaj
Kawasaki and Kinetic Honda. The entry of these foreign companies changed the Indian
market dynamics from the supply side to the demand side. With a larger selection of two-
wheelers on the Indian market, consumers started to gain influence over the products they
bought and raised higher customer expectations. The industry produced more models,
styling options, prices, and different fuel efficiencies. The foreign companies new
technologies helped make the products more reliable and with better quality. Indian
companies had to change to keep up with their global counterparts.

Hero Honda "Splendor" Model

[ Company Profile ]
“Hero”, is the brand name used by the Munjal brothers in the year 1956 with the flagship
company Hero Cycles. The two-wheeler manufacturing business of bicycle components
had originally started in the 1940’s and turned into the world’s largest bicycle
manufacturer today. Hero, is a name synonymous with two-wheelers in India today. The
Munjals roll their own steel, make free wheel bicycle critical components and have
diversified into different ventures like product design. The Hero Group philosophy is: “To
provide excellent transportation to the common man at easily affordable prices and to
provide total satisfaction in all its spheres of activity”. The Hero group vision is to build
long lasting relationships with everyone (customers, workers, dealers and vendors). The
Hero Group has a passion for setting higher standards and “Engineering Satisfaction” is
the prime motivation, way of life and work culture of the Group.

19
In the year 1984, Mr. Brijmohan Lal Munjal, the Chairman and Managing Director of
Hero Honda Motors (HHM), headed an alliance between the Munjal family and Honda
Motor Company Ltd. (HMC). HHM Mission Statement is: “We, at Hero Honda, are
continuously striving for synergy between technology, systems, and human resources to
provide products and services that meet the quality, performance, and price aspirations of
our customers. While doing so, we maintain the highest standards of ethics and societal
responsibilities, constantly innovate products and processes, and develop teams that keep
the momentum going to take the company to excellence in the new millennium”. This
alliance became one of the most successful joint ventures in India, until the year 1999
when HMC had announced a 100% subsidiary, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India
(HMSI). This announcement caused the HHM stock price to decrease by 30 percent that
same day. Munjal had to come up with some new strategic decisions as, HMSI and other
foreign new entry companies were causing increased intensity of rivalry for HHM.

== Growth == The business growth of Hero Honda has been phenomenal throughout its
early days. The Munjal family started a modest business of bicycle components. Hero
Group expanded so big that by 2002 they had sold 86 million bicycles producing 16000
bicycles a day. Today Hero Honda has an assembly line of 9 different models of
motorcycles available. It holds the record for most popular bike in the world by sales for
Its Splendor model. Hero Honda Motors Limited was established in joint venture with
Honda Motors of Japan in 1984, to manufacture motorcycles. It is currently the largest
producer of Two Wheelers in the world. It sold 3 million bikes in the year 2005-2006.
Recently it has also entered in scooter manufacturing, with its model PLEASURE mainly
aimed at girls. The Hero Group has done business differently right from the start and that
is what has helped them to achieve break-through in the competitive two-wheeler market.
The Group's low key, but focused, style of management has earned the company plaudits
amidst investors, employees, vendors and dealers, as also worldwide recognition.

The growth of the Group through the years has been influenced by a number of factors:

[ Just-in-Time ]

The Hero Group through the Hero Cycles Division was the first to introduce the concept
of just-in-time inventory. The Group boasts of superb operational efficiencies. Every
assembly line worker operates two machines simultaneously to save time and improve
productivity. The fact that most of the machines are either developed or fabricated in-
house, has resulted in low inventory levels. In Hero Cycles Limited, the just-in-time
inventory principle has been working since the beginning of production in the unit and is
functional even till date.. This is the Japanese style of production and in India; Hero is
probably the only company to have mastered the art of the just-in-time inventory
principle.

[ Ancillarisation ]

20
An integral part of the Group strategy of doing business differently was providing support
to ancillary units. There are over 300 ancillary units today, whose production is dedicated
to Hero's requirements and also a large number of other vendors, which include some of
the better known companies in the automotive segment. Employee Policy:

Another Striking feature within the Hero Group is the commitment and dedication of its
workers. There is no organized labor union and family members of employees find ready
employment within Hero. The philosophy with regard to labor management is "Hero is
growing, grow with Hero." When it comes to workers' benefits, the Hero Group is known
for providing facilities, further ahead of the industry norms. Long before other companies
did so, Hero was giving its employees a uniform allowance, as well as House Rent
Allowance (HRA) and Leave Travel Allowance (LTA). Extra benefits took the form of
medical check-ups, not just for workers, but also for the immediate family members.

[ Dealer Network ]

The relationship of Hero Group with their dealers is unique in its closeness. The dealers
are considered a part of the Hero family. A nation-wide dealer network comprising of over
5,000 outlets, and have a formidable distribution system in place. Sales agents from Hero
travels to all the corners of the country, visiting dealers and send back daily postcards with
information on the stock position that day, turnover, fresh purchases, anticipated demand
and also competitor action in the region. The manufacturing units have a separate
department to handle dealer complaints and problems and the first response is always
given in 24 hours.

[ Financial Planning ]

The Hero Group benefits from the Group Chairman's financial acumen and his grasp on
technology, manufacturing and marketing. Group Company, Hero Cycles Limited has one
of the highest labor productivity rates in the world. In Hero Honda Motors Limited, the
focus is on financial and raw material management and a low employee turnover.

[ Quality ]

Quality at Hero is attained not just by modern plants and equipment and through latest
technology, but by enforcing a strict discipline. At the Group factories, attaining quality
standards is an everyday practice - a strictly pursued discipline. It comes from an
amalgamation of the latest technology with deep-rooted experience derived from nearly
four decades of hard labor. It is an attitude that masters the challenge of growth and
change - change in consumers' perceptions about products and new aspirations arising
from a new generation of buyers.

Constant technology up gradation ensures that the Group stays in the global mainstream
and maintains its competitive edge. With each of its foreign collaborations, the Group goes
onto strengthen its quality measures as per the book. The Group also employs the services

21
of independent experts from around the world to assist in new design and production
processes.

[ Diversification ]

Throughout the years of enormous growth, the Group Chairman, Mr. Lall has actively
looked at diversification. A considerable level of backward integration in its
manufacturing activities has been ample in the Group's growth and led to the
establishment of the Hero Cycles Cold Rolling Division, Munjal and Sunbeam Castings,
Munjal Auto Components and Munjal Showa Limited amongst other component-
manufacturing units.

Then there were the expansion into the automotive segment with the setting up of Majestic
Auto Limited, where the first indigenously designed moped, Hero Majestic, went into
commercial production in 1978. Then came Hero Motors which introduced Hero Puch, in
collaboration with global technology leader Steyr Daimler Puch of Austria. Hero Honda
Motors was established in 1984 to manufacture 100 cc motorcycles.

The Hero Group also took a venture into other segments like exports, financial services,
information technology, which includes customer response services and software
development. Further expansion is expected in the areas of Insurance and
Telecommunication.

The Hero Group's phenomenal growth is the result of constant innovations, a close watch
on costs and the dynamic leadership of the Group Chairman, characterized by a culture of
entrepreneurship, of right attitudes and building stronger relationships with investors,
partners, vendors and dealers and customer

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

23
It is well known fact that the most important step in marketing research process is
to define the problem. Choose for investigation because a problem well defined is half
solved. That was the reason that at most care was taken while defining various parameters
of the problem. After giving through brain storming session, objectives were selected and
the set on the base of these objectives. A questionnaire was designed major emphasis of
which was gathering new ideas or insight so as to determine and bind out solution to the
problems.

DATA SOURCE

Research included gathering both Primary and Secondary data. Primary data is
the first hand data, which are selected a fresh and thus happen to be original in character.
Primary Data was crucial to know various customers and past consumer views about bikes
and to calculate the market share of this brand in regards to other brands.
Secondary data are those which has been collected by some one else and which
already have been passed through statistical process. Secondary data has been taken from
internet, newspaper, magazines and companies web sites.

RESEARCH APPROACH

The research approach was used survey method which is a widely used method for
data collection and best suited for descriptive type of research survey includes research
instrument like questionnaire which can be structured and unstructured. Target population
is well identified and various methods like personal interviews and telephone interviews
are employed.

SAMPLING UNIT

It gives the target population that will be sampled. This research was carried in
Surat. These were 100 respondents.

DATA COMPLETION AND ANALYSIS

After the data has been collected, it was tabulated and findings of the project were
presented followed by analysis and interpretation to reach certain conclusions.

SCOPE

My project was based on the Comparative Study of Bajaj V/S Hero Honda and
data was taken in the City SURAT only.

24
LIMITATIONS

25
1. Research work was carried out in one Distt of Punjab (MUKTSAR) only the finding
may not be applicable to the other parts of the country because of social and cultural
differences.

2. The sample was collected using connivance-sampling techniques. As such result may
not give an exact representation of the population.

3. Shortage of time is also reason for incomprehensiveness.

4. The views of the people are biased therefore it doesn’t reflect true picture.
