This Project is done for the Chennai Port Trust to analyze the Budgetary Control.
For researcher various areas of vital information are:

 To find the Variance between the Actual and the Budget Estimates of the Organization for the Past Five Years.

 To find the Income and Expenses are Increasing year by year or Decreasing.

 This Project aims to make the Trend Analysis, Variance Analysis and prepare the Comparative Statement.

 This details enables the organization to have clear picture about budgetary control. This could be help the top management in arriving at a corrective decision.


 In our daily life, we use to prepare budgets for matching the expenses with income; and available funds can be invested in a profitable manner.  Similarly in government Organization, budgets are prepared on the basis of future estimated Income in order to find out the profit in a specified period.  A budget is in the nature of an Estimate and is a qualified plan for the future activities to co-ordination and controls the activities for a specific period.

 Budgeting is a process, which includes two important functions. Budget and budgetary control. Budget is a planning function and Budgetary Control is a controlling systems or technique.  A control technique whereby actual results are compared with budget’s is known as Budgetary Control.  The exercise of control in the Organization with the help of Budgets is known as Budgetary Control.

A budget is defined as a comprehensive and coordinated plan, expressed in financial for the Operations and resources of an enterprise for some specified period in the future.  Preparation of various budgets.  Continuous Comparison of Actual Performance with Budgetary Performance.  Revision of Budgets in the light of changed circumstances. Budgeting plays an important in any Organization. Forecasting the events, Planning allocation of funds are the major sources of Budgetary Control.

Budgets may be divided into two basic classes: 1. Capital Budgets 2. Operating Budget Capital Budgets are directed towards proposed expenditure for new projects and often require special financing. The Operating Budgets are directed towards achieving short-term operational goals of the organization, for instance, production or profit goals in a business firm. Operating budgets may be sub-divided into various departmental of functional budgets. Sales budget, Production budget, Administrative Expenses budget, Raw –material budget, All these sectional budgets are afterwards integrated into a master budget, which represents an overall plan of the organization.

The other Types of Budgeting Known as: • Zero Based Budgeting • Performance Based Budgeting ZERO BASED BUDGETING: Each manager prepares estimates of his or her proposed expenses for a specific period of time as though they were being performed for the first time. In other words, each activity starts from a budget base zero. By starting from scratch at each budget cycle, managers are required to take a close look at all their expenses and justify them to top management, thereby minimizing waste. PERFORMANCE BASED BUDGETING: Performance Budgeting results in a Budget which present the operations of an enterprise in term of functions, programmes, activities and projects. The measurement of actual performance with Budgeted performance in terms of financial and physical is known as performance Based Budgeting. ADVANTAGES OF BUDGETARY CONTROL: There are a number of advantages of Budgetary Control: • Compels management of think about the future, which is probably the most important feature of a budgetary planning and control system. Forces management to look ahead, to set out detailed plans for achieving the targets for each department, operation and (ideally) each manager, to anticipate and give the organization purpose and direction. • Promotes coordination and communication. • Clearly defines areas of responsibility. Requires managers of budget centers to be made responsible for the achievement of budget targets for the operations under their personal control.

• Provides a basis for performance appraisal (variance analysis). A budget is basically a yardstick against which actual performance is measured and assessed. Control is provided by comparisons of actual result against budget plan. Departures from budget can then be investigated and the reasons for the differences can be divided into controllable and noncontrollable factor • Enables remedial action to be taken as variances emerge. • Motivates employees by participating in the setting of budgets. • Improves the allocation of scarce resources. Main characteristics of a Budgetary Control are: 1. It is prepared in advance and is derived from the long-term strategy of the organization. 2. It relates to future period for which objectives or goals have been laid down. 3. It is expressed in quantitative form, physical or monetary units, or both. BUDGET AND BUDGETARY CONTROL IN CHENNAI PORT TRUST: • The Budgets in Chennai port Trust are prepared to meet their expenses with their income in the forth coming year. • Budget Estimates are made on the basis of the Previous Year Income and an approval form is sent to the Government for the sanction of Amount • The Actual exceed the Budget Estimates so the necessary for budgetary control arise.



• The Primary Objective of this Study is to explore the activities in Chennai Port in achieving the Budgeted Estimates.


• To compare the Budget Estimates and Actual of Chennai Port Trust for the Past Five Years. • To carry out the Trend Analysis, Variance Analysis and to prepare Comparative Statement.

Any Organization has to look back, if it wants go to forward. This study which is done at Chennai Port Trust aims at Studying the Budgetary System and the ways of making it more Effective.

 The scope of this study is to compare the Budget Estimates, with the Actuals.

 The study helps to know about the Budgetary Control at Chennai Port Trust.


 It is prepared on the basis of certain prevailing conditions. If the conditions. If the conditions change budget are also to be revised.

 The data used for this is collected only from the Income and Expenditure Statement

 At Present they are following the Zero Based Budgeting Method which is not Properly Implemented.

The little fishing village called Chennai pattinam, which was founded in 1639, became prominent during the early part of the 18th century when the East India Company was active on the East Coast. In the Harbour, to and from ships were anchored about quarter mile offshore and the cargo to and from the ships were transported through small lighters called masula boats as the loss of cargo while transporting through masula boats was high, it was proposed to build a pier to berth larger crafts and an Iron screw pile Pier was built in 1861 to a length of 1100 ft., perpendicular to the shore during November 1881, due to violent cyclone over half a mile of breakwater was breached and equipments and human lives lost. Through there was a demand for relocating the entrance, the restoration was resumed in 1885.

Port of Chennai [madras then] until the year 1875 was simply an open roadstead on open sandy coast swept by storms and occasional monsoons. Sir Frands Sprig, the then chairman of madras port trust in 1904 created a new north-eastern Entrance after closing the original eastern Entrance to control the siltation of the Chennai in front of the basin. Subsequently quays were constructed at different period[i.e.] south quay-1 in 1913, the five west quay berths in 1916 to 1920, North Quay in North Quay in 1931 and south Quay-2 in 1936 in the Inner Harbour which was later, christened as Dr. Ambedkar DOCK.

The bharathi dock originally constructed as an outer harbour to handle vessels up to [-] 16-2 m draft. An oil jetty to handle crude oil imported by the manali oil Refinery [presently Chennai petroleum Corporation Ltd ] was constructed initially during the year 1970 An Iron ore berth was constructed in the same dock in 1974 for exporting Iron ore to Japan and other far East countries subsequently one more oil jetty was constructed during the year 1985 to meet the additional demand for crude/products.

In 1970s the madras port trust started handling container traffic was increasing, a container Terminal of 380 m length was constructed at Bharathi Dock during the year 1983 as a first full-fledged container hub of the country with container storage year of 51,000 sq. m and a area. The terminal was provided with tow shore cranes and other shore facilities required for container terminal.

Subsequently the terminal was farther extended by 220 m. during the year 1991 with additional two shore cranes and other matching infrastructural facility. As the traffic was constantly increasing the terminal was further extended by 285 m, during fully 2002. This container terminal of 885 in total berth length with backup area was privatized lender concessional agreement with M/s. X Chennai container. Terminal private ltd., On BOT Basis for 30 years from November 2001.
