PREFACE
Without practical training, management education is meaningless so long with the theory; practical training is provided to management students to expose them to the actual working environment of any organization. Such training provides a framework of knowledge relating to the concepts and practices of the assigned topics in the organization. The summer training is an integral part of the course curriculum of Master of Business Administration (M.B.A. 3rd ). In this the student is in the position to analyze the integral working of an organization with mature eyes and understand the dynamics in a much better manner. This particular project has been conducted at Cargo Motors. In the first phase of the research project, there is a introduction of Cargo Motors, company profile and vehicles of Cargo Motors are given. After that a market research is performed with a sample size of 100 people and their vehicles. The research study was limited to the Pathankot. Here, in my survey, I have contacted the respondents through random sampling. The main objective of the research is to know the customer satisfaction level and their perception regarding the service of the Cargo Motors in the workshop and the demand of the particular vehicle.

HISTORY

JRD Tata
Founder of Tata Motors (1938-1993)

No success in material terms is worthwhile unless it serves the needs and interests of the country and its people by fair and honest means.’ JRD Tata, a man who has grown into a legend touched the lives of countless people, rich and poor, manager and worker, as he became the embodiment of the principles and philosophy of the House of Tatas. He led the Tata Group for 55 years. During that period, as a financial daily put it, ‘The Tata group’s crowning achievement was the making of Tata Engineering & Locomotive Company, a giant that has earned a reputation for investing in men as much as in machines, in nurturing and developing creativity instead of simply buying technology from abroad, in making products appropriate for India and yet good enough for the international markets.” JRD’s principles and vision laid the foundation for Tata Motors’ growth. His style of management was to pick the best person for the job at hand and let him have the latitude to carry out the job. He was never for micro-management. It was he who zeroed in on Sumant Moolgaokar, the engineering genius who successfully steered our Company for many years. He was a visionary whose thinking was far ahead of his time. The dream of a passenger car developed in India was born in his time and remained an enduring vision through the years. This provided support to many activities in Tata Motors, which were necessary to see the dream become a reality. e.g., establishment of a full-fledged R&D department at Pune, in-house development of gear box technology, entry into passenger car market and so on.

8

JRD firmly believed in employee welfare and espoused the principles of an eighthour working day, free medical aid, workers' provident scheme, workmen’s accident compensation schemes, which were later adopted as statutory requirements in the country. In 1956, he initiated a programmed of closer "employee association with management" to give workers a stronger voice in the affairs of the Company. He believed that the social responsibilities of industrial enterprises should extend even beyond serving people, to the environment. He commented on building the lake near the site of the Tata Motors, Pune plant, ‘We did not have to create a lake to produce a truck, but we did.’ His emphasis on values, on ethics, on investing in education, research, science, and technology, health care and in improving the quality of life of ordinary people was a forerunner of the more recent concepts of “corporate social responsibility”. His every visit to the Tata Motors plant was characterized by a keen interest not only in machines and manufacturing processes but also in the employees. He was at home with any age group and his infectious enthusiasm and warmth as also his courtesy, philanthropy and humanity were legendary even in his lifetime. JRD Tata was awarded the country’s highest civilian honors, the Bharat Ratna, in 1992 -- one of the rare instances when the award was granted during a person’s lifetime. And, on his death, the Indian Parliament was adjourned in his memory, an action that spoke much more than any words could have done. Jamsetji Tata, the founder of the Tata Group laid the foundation for what is today the Tata Group philosophy on ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR). "The wealth gathered by Jamsetji Tata and his sons in half a century of industrial pioneering formed but a minute fraction of the amount by which they enriched the nation. The whole of that wealth is held in trust for the people and used exclusively for their benefit. The cycle is thus complete; what came from the people has gone back to the people many times over." J.R.D. Tata This has formed the framework on which the philosophy of Tata Motors’ Corporate Social Responsibility is based...the philosophy of ‘giving back to the community’. It has chartered the course that Tata Motors has adopted in its relationship with the community in which it operates.

Sumant Moolgaokar Chairman, Tata Motors (1972-1988) A man with a Vision Sumant Moolgaokar is often referred to as the architect of Tata Motors. Leading the Company for nearly four decades, he was responsible for building Tata Motors into an organization capable of competing with the world’s best - in terms of people, processes and technology. A man with a vision, he had the ability to see what Tata Motors would be. He believed that in order to build an industry, you not only had to build a factory, but also the men and the technology. His vision was not limited to the Company but encompassed even the nation and he was often seen as not just building a factory, but building a nation. His long-term strategies were always in tune with the needs of the country. He was able to foresee that for India to become an industrial nation, it would need specially trained minds, while also being in a position to independently make its own machinery, tools and equipment. With this mind, from the very beginning Tata Motors trained its employees in the required skills and technologies. Sumant Moolgaokar was also instrumental in setting up the Engineering Research Centre, the Machine Tool and the Press Tool Division. That he had the ability of translating his vision into reality was well known. He drove the Company and its people, steering it through its most difficult and challenging times. Setting the standard “Expect the best, ask for it, pursue it relentlessly and you will get it.”, he often said. He believed that the key to bringing out the best from people was to expect the best from them. This pursuit of excellence in conceptualization and execution form the very foundation of the ‘Tata Motors culture’. He also possessed the rare gift of bringing out the best in the people who worked with him and was known for personally looking into the development of people with promise - encouraging and motivating them. A nature love His love and commitment for nature and the environment was well known. No expense for installing equipment at the Tata Motors plants was too much, when it was to prevent any kind of pollution arising from the operations. When the Pune plant was being set-up, under Moolgaokar, the first thing that Tata Motors did was plant trees. The barren rocky land was blasted to plant trees. Trees needed water and for that a dam was built that is today a beautiful lake. A lake that has become a safe resting place for several migratory birds.

RatanTata Chairman, Tata Motors
“I

had a strong conviction that our engineers, who could put a rocket into space, could produce our own car.” It was this very conviction of Ratan Tata that led to the birth of Indica - the car that put India on the automobile world map. Developing an indigenous Indian car was a daunting task. One that Tata Motors took head-on, encouraged by the faith and confidence Chairman Ratan Tata had in the Company’s engineering skills. Conceived within a time frame of 31 months - from concept to commercialization at a total cost of $ 400 million, the Indica is a small step towards fulfilling Ratan Tata’s vision of Tata Motors as a great car manufacturer. On the Tata Motors board since 1981, Ratan Tata continues the traditions of Jamsetji Tata and JRD Tata, instilling ethics and credibility in the Company. He has steered the Company in challenging times, emerging victorious under even adverse conditions. Under his leadership, Tata Motors is charting for itself a global path in the automotive world. The agreement with MG Rover, UK to manufacture and sell Rover branded Indicas in UK and Western Europe is a step in that direction. Ratan Tata’s global ambitions for Tata Motors have taken wing with the recent acquisition of Daewoo Commercial vehicle Co., South Korea and Tata Motors’ entry in the South African market. The Daewoo acquisition will give Tata Motors a substantial presence in the Korean market in addition to synergies in manufacturing, marketing and research. According to Ratan Tata, the acquisition is a historic occasion for Tata Motors and the Tata Group as this is the largest acquisition by any Indian company in Korea. He believes that the South Africa could be a possible stepping stone for other countries in Africa. Among the many firsts Tata Motors has achieved under Ratan Tata’s leadership is the listing of the Company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) - the first company in the Indian engineering sector to list its securities on the NYSE. His next mission for Tata Motors is the development of the Rs 1 lakh car - the people’s car. As he says, “India is capable of doing anything it wishes to do if you do not constrain the people...

Its been an eventful journey, 1954 to 2004. Over the years Tata Motors’ has evolved from a truck manufacturer to becoming India’s only fully integrated automobile manufacturer with a product range designed to meet India’s transportation needs. It’s been an eventful journey, 1954 to 2004. Over the years Tata Motors’ has evolved from a truck manufacturer to becoming India’s only fully integrated automobile manufacturer with a product range designed to meet India’s transportation needs. past five decades. From the first Tata truck that rolled out in 1954 to the present day, Tata Motors has been on a journey of consent evaluation and growth In a message to employees at the inception of Tata Motors (then Tata Engineering and Locomotive Co) in 1945, Mr. JRD Tata had said, “Undertaking the manufacture of boilers first, then locomotives and eventually engineering machinery is an important step forward in the country’s march towards industrial self-sufficiency.” The founders of Tata Motors also envisioned that in the post-independence era, the socio-economic and political developments taking place would mean the movement of men and material across the nation. To meet the huge transportation needs and taking the opportunity to be a part of nation building; Tata Motors collaborated with Daimler Benz of Germany in 1954 to manufacture trucks. The two parted ways in 1969 and the Company’s vehicles got a new name - from Tata Mercedes Benz Trucks, they were now Tata trucks. Mr. Sumant Moolgaokar, Chairman, Tata Motors (1972-1988) had said, “Profits should come from productivity and not by raising prices in a favorable market. Our greatest asset is customer affection.” This has remained the Company’s credo throughout. But the story of Tata Motors is not just about trucks and buses. Realizing the opportunity for entering a new segment, Tata Motors launched two passenger vehicles - the sports vehicle, Tata Sierra in 1991 and the Tata Estate in 1992. The first fully indigenously developed small car - Tata Indica followed soon after. A car that rewrote the rules of the Indian car industry and propelled India into a select group of nations that manufactures its own car. Tata Motors, with its full range of commercial and passenger vehicles, is all about meeting India’s needs. With trucks that move men and material in places where even roads are non-existent; Tata Motors helps India’s armed forces guard the nation’s borders. It ensures that little children reach school safely in their Tata school buses. Equally important to Tata Motors is its belief that it has a special responsibility to the community in which it operates. This has formed the guideline for its community development programmer that strives to improve the quality of the life of the people. 12

Having won the hearts of millions of Indians, Tata Motors is set to tap opportunities in global markets. With the Company’s recent acquisition of Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Co., South Korea, and its foray into international markets, Tata Motors is geared for its cruise on the world track. On a relentless quest for excellence, Tata Motors looks forward to new challenges. The Tata Empire has changed dramatically since Ratan Tata took over from his uncle J.R.D. Tata in 1991 -- coincidentally the same year that the Indian government began moving away from its rule by regulation toward economic liberalization. Before 1991, Tata Group and its holding company Tata Sons were said to be like many of the empires of old Asia -- weakly centralized, unable to control its satraps and begums and rajahs, full of formal pomp but empty of power. The Tata Sons holding company and the various family philanthropic trusts had diluted their holdings in many of the companies. Under Ratan Tata, the center began to take hold. He moved Tata Group out of sectors where it was not competitive, such as textiles and cement, and invested more family capital in sectors that he thought held more promise. Remarkably, considering the state of overcapacity in the world automobile industry, Tata thought and thinks autos to be one such sector. Where Westerners see a stagnant, legacy industry cursed by overcapacity, he sees it, from an Indian perspective, as a growth industry. The company that is now Tata Motors made trucks, buses and construction equipment, and it still has a 60% share of India's commercial-vehicle market. But under new marching orders from Ratan Tata, the motor company introduced its first India-designed car in 1997. After some early stumbles, its Indica small car and midsize Indigo each accounts for about a quarter of their market segments, for a 16% total share of the Indian car market. The Indian car market grew 17% last year, and Tata Motors' volume grew 27%. Tata Motors (TTM), with a market value of $3.5 billion, is by far the biggest of the Tata companies accessible to American individuals; its American depositary receipts have been listed on the Big Board since September. It reported nearly $4 billion of revenue for the fiscal year ended in March, up 32% from the previous years, and earnings of $283 million, or 79 cents a share, up 41% in dollar terms. The consensus estimate for 2006 is 90 cents a share. The ADRs have been trading at a little below 10, in the middle of a trading range between 12.25 and 8.65 since the listing. Tata Motors soon will incorporate Tata Finance as a wholly owned subsidiary, and the company says it intends to finance up to 40% of its sales within a few years, up from a current 18%. The company noticed what happened in the U.S. and other countries when captive credit companies made it possible for every car dealer to offer financing with small money down and affordable monthly payments. 13

Tata Motors is still recovering from an ill-fated partnership with the now-bankrupt Rover Group in Britain, and it has warned of trouble ahead -- increasing competition and a decline in the commercial vehicle sector, and of course the effect of higher fuel prices. Nonetheless, the company plans to make good on a $1.35 billion five-year capital-expenditure program that started in April 2004. That includes the launch of a basic $2,000 car, which, if Tata succeeds, could be the Model-T Ford of the 21st-century developing world. But cars are still cars.

Chairman's chamber
Ratan N Tata is the chairman of Tata Sons, the Tata promoter company "One hundred years from now, I expect the Tatas to be much bigger than it is now. More importantly, I hope the group comes to be regarded as being the best in India — best in the manner in which we operate, best in the products we deliver and best in our value systems and ethics. Having said that, I hope that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far beyond India..." — Ratan Tata

Leadership with trust
Tata companies operate in seven business sectors: communications and information technology, engineering, materials, services, energy, consumer products and chemicals. They are, by and large, based in India and have significant international operations. The total revenue of Tata companies, taken together, was $70.8 billion (around Rs325,334 crore) in 2008-09, with 64.7 per cent of this coming from business outside India, and they employ around 357,000 people worldwide. The Tata name has been respected in India for 140 years for its adherence to strong

Intoduction of Tata Motors
Tata Motors is one of the premier car manufacturing companies in India. In fact it continues to dominate the car manufacturing sector in India accounting for revenues of more than Rs. 35,000 crores in the year 2007-08. Apart from cars, Tata Motors also happens to be one of the largest manufacturers of trucks and buses in India. Over 23,000 people are employed with this Indian firm.

Beginning of Tata Motors The firm was initially known by the name of TELCO, Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company. During the early years, TELCO used to manufacture locomotives. It was only later that it ventured into the commercial vehicle segment. JRD Tata founded Tata Motors in the year 1945 In 1954, Tata Motors operationalised its activities in the commercial vehicle sector. The Middle Years During the middle years in the history of Tata Motors, the company started expanding its operations dynamically. The first commercial vehicle to have come out of the Tata Motors' fold was a copy of the Daimler Benz model. In the later years, heavy commercial vehicles started making its appearance. In 1960, Tata Motors manufactured its first ever commercial vehicle. In 1986, the first LCV, Tata 407 was introduced. Present time In present times, Tata Motors continues to be a brand to reckon with. It's no mean task to be the largest car manufacturing company in India. In 2004, Tata Motors got itself listed on the NYSE. In 2005, the company became one of the top 10 corporations in India. In March 2008, Tata Motors acquired the British Jaguar Land Rover business from Ford Motors. Popular Tata Motors Brands Some of the popular Tata Motors products have been listed below.

Tata Motor's Nano Car

Tata Motors is manufacturing a car, Nano that aims to be the world's most inexpensive production car. The Nano car is priced around Rs. 1,00,000. That has caused other automobile companies like Bajaj Auto and Mahindra-Renault to announce plans to launch cars within the same price range. International operations In recent years, Tata Motors has expanded globally and now has significant presence in several, major countries of the world. Tata Motors carries out production and assembly operations in the following countries. South Korea Thailand South Africa Argentina The car manufacturing company also has plans to expand operations to other international locations like: Turkey Indonesia Eastern Europe In the last decade, Tata Motors has managed to become a global brand and is definitely one of the major car manufacturing companies to watch out for. Tata Motors Limited is India's largest automobile company, with consolidated revenues of Rs.70, 938.85 crores (USD 14 billion) in 2008-09. It is the leader in commercial vehicles in each segment, and among the top three in passenger vehicles with winning products in the compact, midsize car and utility vehicle segments. The company is the world's fourth largest truck manufacturer, and the world's second largest bus manufacturer. The company's 23,000 employees are guided by the vision to be "best in the manner in which we operate, best in the products we deliver, and best in our value system and ethics." Established in 1945, Tata Motors' presence indeed cuts across the length and breadth of India. Over 4 million Tata vehicles ply on Indian roads, since the first rolled out in 1954. The company's manufacturing base in India is spread across Jamshedpur (Jharkhand), Pune (Maharashtra), Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh), Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) and Dharwad (Karnataka). Following a strategic alliance with Fiat in 2005, it has set up an industrial joint venture with Fiat Group Automobiles at Ranjangaon (Maharashtra) to produce both Fiat and Tata cars and Fiat powertrains. The company is establishing a new plant at Sanand (Gujarat).

The company’s dealership, sales, services and spare parts network comprises over 3500 touch points; Tata Motors also distributes and markets Fiat branded cars in India.

Jamshedpur plant MANUFACTURING
Established in1945, the Jamshedpur unit was the company's first unit and is spread over an area of 822 acres. It consists of 4 major divisions - Truck Factory, Engine Factory, Cab & Cowl Factories, and the Novus. The divestments in March 2000 hived off the Axle and Engine plants into independent subsidiaries viz. HVAL &HVTL, respectively. The Truck Division boasts of two assembly lines. The main assembly line, measuring 180m in length has 20 work stations with a vehicle rolling out every 8 mins. The other line is dedicated to special purpose vehicles and for meeting the requirements of the Indian Army. The uniqueness of the Factory lies in its possession of · Advanced facilities for manufacturing long members comprising of a set-up of 5000 Tones Hydraulic press line, cut-to-length line for strip preparation purchased from M/s Kohler of Germany and a Camber Correction line. · Facility for hot forming of axle halves with a 3000 tone press and heating furnace. · Flexibility in manufacturing frames with an off line Proto-typing facility The area 1954 where the construction is running we can show with the help of diagram

Approximately 32 applications for LCV manufacture had been approved by the Government of India, and most with foreign collaboration. To this, Telco’s R&D had a savvy market answer- the 407 specifically created for Indian roads and quick to become the market favorite. We also launched the first fully indigenous pick-up, the Tata mobile, a vehicle ahead of its time.

At Cargo Motors, we believe "The brand promises, the experience delivers" and that is why we strongly commit to deliver excellent, professional and passionate service to our customers. Thank you for visiting our website and it would be a great pleasure to welcome you soon at one of our Cargo Motors dealerships

CARGO/MERCURIUS MOTORS
The Cargo/ Mercurius Motors is one of the leading names in the South African motor industry. The company was formed in 1955 when Jack Mincer bought the Saker-Bartle group. This group of companies included D H Saker, the franchise holder for Studebaker cars and trucks as well as Vanguard cars and MercedesBenz trucks. The potential of Mercedes-Benz having its own identity was soon recognized and "Cargo" was formed purely for this franchise (Mercedes Benz trucks), while D H Saker retained Studebaker and Vanguard. The name "Cargo" is a combination of the first letters of the first names of the founders of Daimler-Benz, CAR(L) Benz and GO(TTLIEP) Daimler. On occasion, it has also been said that means just CAR GO or that in our early years, we mostly sold trucks and were therefore in the "CARGO" business. Cargo's main source of income in 1955 was derived from truck sales but in the same year the first car, a Mercedes-Benz 180 was imported and sold. In 1956 a total of 93 cars were sold. Cargo's initial premises consisted of a showroom and offices in 92 Marshall Street and a corrugated iron workshop in Harrison Street. The total personnel complement was about 20. The original franchise area comprised of 37 magisterial districts stretching from the Northern Cape and Bechuanaland to Swaziland including the Transvaal, except Pretoria and Northern Transvaal. The area was covered by traveling salesmen and later a steadily growing network of Cargo branches and dealers. In 1956, Cargo's workshop in Harrison Street was moved to Bacon Road where we

21

occupied only a small section of the building mainly used by D H Saker. Also in the late fifties, D H Saker was renamed Lindsay Saker. In 1962 a general representative for South Africa was appointed by Daimler-Benz A G in the form of UCDD (United Car and Diesel Distributors) (Pty) Limited which became known as Mercedes-Benz of South Africa (Pty) Limited. This meant a total reorganization of the dealer network. In 1998, Mercedes Benz SA became DaimlerChrysler South Africa. In 1963, Cargo Johannesburg and Lindsay Saker went public and a holding company called Saficon Investments Limited was formed to incorporate both, providing them with finance and guidance. This was followed by the purchase of Cargo's sister companies in Klerksdorp, Germanton and Benoni. Still in the sixties, the rising Mercedes-Benz population in Johannesburg necessitated the expansion of our services and in line with Cargo's strategy to bring our services to our customers' doorsteps; we acquired several service stations, namely Illovo, Braamfontein, Cartograms and North cliff. Meanwhile in October 1968 Cargo city in Stott Street was completed. Based in Selby, Cargo city was one of the largest Mercedes-Benz service centers outside of Germany. In the 1970's Cargo continued to expand its operation by opening more service stations in Morningside, Sand ton, Wynberg and Language - the latter two being predominantly truck facilities. Due to product) and Western Star (maintenance only) form part of the commercial vehicle arm of Cargo Motors. In July 2004, Cargo Motors took over the Mercurial dealerships in Airport, East Rand Mall and Kempton Park and later acquired Polo wane in February 2005 Cargo and Mercurial both owned by the Imperial Group were consolidated under the Cargo Management structure as agreed by DaimlerChrysler South Africa. Although Cargo/Mercurial operates under separate names they are effectively run as one business. In October 2005 Magic Merkel Motors in Tandem was purchased and trades under the name of Merkel Motors and forms part of the Polo wane Market Center. Towards the end of 2001 the DaimlerChrysler Dealer Network Strategy was proposed which focused on Brand Separation. This necessitated the creation of Brand operated Lifestyle Centers e.g. Mitsubishi, Chrysler Jeep and Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles Lifestyle Centers This upgrade to facilities is largely complete with Mercedes Benz Passenger Cars Lifestyle Center due for completion in 2007. The Cargo/Mercurial business is divided into Brands. The Brand Centers catering for the specific Brand i.e. Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars; Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles; Mitsubishi Passenger Cars; Freightliner/Fuso Commercial Vehicles.

TATA & FIAT

IN a development that could see a major realignment in the domestic automobile industry, Tata Motors and Fiat came together on a single platform on Friday to announce a strategic relationship for sales and marketing of Fiat cars through Tata dealerships. Both Tata Motors' Chairman, Mr Ratan Tata, and Fiat SPA Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Sergio Marchionne, who had specially flown in to be present at the press conference, were quick to point out that it was not a joint venture yet, but dropped enough hints to suggest that this first step could see both the auto giants entering into a deeper relationship. "This is not a joint venture, but this is the start of a relationship which could go beyond even a joint venture," Mr Tata said. "It is a relationship which is beginning to form. We want to give it time," Mr Marchionne said. Earlier, Tata Motors' Managing Director, Mr. Ravi Kant, told reporters that a selection of Fiat cars along with service and spares will be available across Tata dealers from March. Dealers will display the new Fiat logo along with that of Tata. This deal is the first of several joint initiatives that has been started after the two carmakers signed a memorandum of understanding in September 2005.

Mr Marchionne agreed that Fiat has not been successful in making any dent in the Indian market. "Today's agreement is a recognition that we do need to have a major presence in the market," he said. Mr Tata also said that though the Tata Motors was running at nearly full capacity, no decision has been made on utilising Fiat's capacity. "Whether we do it in Pune, Ranjangaon or a new location remains to be seen," Mr Tata said. He said the current alliance was an evolving relationship that did not have any barriers. "It is very prudent not to over promise or overstate. Probably this is the healthiest way to start a relationship with no holds barred to where we go," Mr Tata said. Mr Marchionne said there is a possibility of the product portfolio in India being expanded, though it will not be done this year. He said during the last 12 months, Fiat has taken a conscious decision to open itself to other car companies globally. "It is also important to share its technology, revenues and product development capabilities," he said. Mr Marchionne said even though the company has tied up with Suzuki for the diesel engine plant being set up in India, it would not pose a problem for any new joint ventures with other partners. He said Fiat was financially stable after a long time. "We have the highest of financial stabilities so far and probably we have the best dealership team so far," he said.

Tata Motors believes in technology for tomorrow. Our products stand testimony to this. Our annual expenditure on R&D is approximately 2% of our turnover. We have also set up two in-house Engineering Research Centres that house India's only Certified Crash Test Facility. We ensure that our products are environmentally sound in a variety of ways. These include reducing hazardous materials in vehicle components, developing extended-life lubricants, fluids and using ozone-friendly refrigerants. Tata Motors has been making a conscious effort by implementing several environmentally sensitive technologies in manufacturing processes. The Company uses some of the world's most advanced equipment for emission check and control. Tata Motors concern is manifested by a dual approach 1. Reduction of environmental pollution and regular pollution control drives 2. Restoration of ecological balance. Our endeavors towards environment protection are soil and water conservation programmed and extensive tree plantation drives. Tata Motors is committed to restoring and preserving environmental balance, by reducing waste and pollutants, conserving resources and recycling materials. Restoring Ecological Balance Tata Motors has set up effluent treatment facilities in its plants to avoid release of polluted water into the ecosystem. In Pune, the treated water is conserved in lakes attracting various species of birds from around the world thus turning the space into a green belt. Tree plantation programmed involving villagers and Tata Motors employees, have turned acres of barren village land green. Tata Motors has planted as many as 80,000 trees in the works and the township and more than 2.4 million trees have been planted in Jamshedpur region. Over half a million trees have been planted in the Poona region. Tata Motors has directed all its suppliers to package their products in alternate material instead of wood.

Reducing Pollution
Tata Motors has been at the forefront of the Indian automobile industry's antipollution efforts by introducing cleaner engines. It is the first Indian Company to introduce vehicles with Euro norms well ahead of the mandated dates. Tata Motors' joint venture with Cummins Engine Company, USA, in 1992, was a pioneering effort to introduce emission control technology for India. Over the years, Tata Motors has also made investments in setting up of an advanced emission-testing laboratory.

34

With the intention of protecting the environment, Tata Motors has upgraded the performance of its entire range of four and six cylinder engines to meet international emission standards. This has been accomplished with the help of world-renowned engine consultants like Ricardo and AVL. These engines are used in Tata Motors vehicles in the Indian market, as well as in over 70 export markets. Tata Motors is constantly working towards developing alternative fuel engine technologies. It has manufactured CNG version of buses and followed it up with a CNG version of its passenger car, the Indica.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

40

Research is a careful investigation or inquiry especially through search for new facts in branch of knowledge: market research specifies the information. Required to address these issues: designs the method for collecting information: manage and implements the data collection process analyses the results and communicates the finding and their implications. Research problem is the one which requires a researcher to find out the best solution for the given problem that is to find out the course of action, the action the objectives can be obtained optimally in the context of a given environment.

Data Collection :- The objectives of the project are such that both primary
and secondary data is required to achieve them. So both primary and secondary data was used for the project. The mode of collecting primary data is personal interview and sources of secondary data are various magazines, books, newspapers, & websites etc.

1. Primary Data: The primary data was collected to measure the vehicles
coming for repair in workshop and their frequency of coming. The primary data was collected by means of personal interview and analysis was done on the basis of response received from the customers. The interview has been conducted in such a manner that the consumer’s satisfaction level can be measured and consumer can enter his responses easily.

2. Secondary Data: The purpose of collecting secondary data was to achieve
the objective of studying the recent trends and developments taking place in cargo vehicles.

Sample size –
100 people and vehicles were selected.

Sampling Unit –
I take the sample from Pathankot city

41

Sampling Technique –
I choose random sampling technique.

Analysis and Interpretation
After the data collection, it was compiled, classified and tabulated manually and with help of computer. Then the task of drawing inferences was accomplished with the help of percentage and graphic method.

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

42

It is said, “Nothing is perfect” and if the quite is true, I am sure that there would be few shortcoming in this project also. Sincere efforts have been made to eliminate discrepancies as far as possible but few would have reminded due to limitations of the study. These are:

1. Limited scope The survey was conducted in Pathankot thus the respondents belonged to only this region of the country. This could have brought bias into the study. 2. Assumption for the purpose of analysis Some assumption was made while doing analysis and interpretation; there could be few limitations in regard to these. 3. Work seasons There is very importance for the season of the work because if there are working season then they require for the service of the vehicles.

Data Analysis and Interpretation
For the purpose of analyzing, raw data was summarized in a master table and from this table the results have been carried out. The questions having multiple

43

alternative choices. In the case of questions on likert scale, the mean scores were calculated. In case of ranking questions the total score has been added and final ranking is given by calculating mean. In case of checklist questions the average of total no. of responses was calculated. In case of explanatory questions, the general suggestions were summarized.

Findings
There are 35 percent of people want to buy 1613 vehicle, because there is heavy demand of 1613 vehicles because service station is near by army. 55 •

When there are any vehicle come for service then, the service is not in time because some workers are not working properly and they create bad environment. There are only one complains from the customer side that service is not in time. There are some customers are going to another private service station, because the cargo motors always delay the service, so that they go to the other service station. There are 72% people want to come for service, because there are not another service station in the Pathankot area.

• •

SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

56

Pathankot is an army area and there are heavy demands of heavy vehicles so, there should be proper supply of the vehicles, so that they can full fill the demand of the customer. Manager should be proper control of the lazy worker, because they create bad environment in the workshop. Some time there is lack of parts of vehicles so that service is not in time. • There should be proper sitting facility in their service center

• •

CONCLUSION
The development of project “CUSTOMER SATISFECTION” is a original creative. As MBA student has tried to increase my experience
57

and knowledge by working in a practical world. The project has been a rewarding experience in many ways. We have gained as in sight into the working of project –“CUSTOMER SATISFACTION”. In course of development of this project I have introduced too much questions and got a survey regarding the consumer satisfaction about different vehicles. The project “CUSTOMER SATISFACTION” is based on information about various vehicles those who are come in the workshop for service. I found that the satisfaction level of the customers those are come for the service in the workshop. There are demand is more then the supply. Because there are in army and they want to demand the vehicles, there are also suitable GRIF they are regular demand for the 1613 vehicles and they don’t complete the demand of the GRIF. Finally, we would like to mention that this project has given us an idea of handling real situations. We have made our sincerest efforts to complete this work as much perfection as possible.
