Employee Welfare Measures

The success of an organization depends not on materials, machines and equipment but on the efficiency of the personnel who are to put in their best efforts for an efficient performance at their job. The importance of human factor in industries lies in the fact that it has an unlimited potential for investments. It is the only resource, which is able to produce an output greater than its inputs. However, human resource is the most complex and unpredictable because of its individuality. Human resource management is also known as personnel management, labor management, manpower management etc. Prof. E.F.L.

HISTORY OF THE PAPER: Paper has a long history, beginning with the ancient Egyptians and continuing to the present day. For thousands of years, hand-made methods dominated and then, during the 19th century paper production became industrialized .Originally intended purely for writing and printing purposes, a wide variety of paper grades and uses are now available to the consumers. The first paper mill in the world was started in 1336 A.D. in Germany. Later paper mills were started in 1586 in “Switzerland” and “Holland”. Later it spread all over the world. Firstly in 1789 chlorine was used for bleaching of the pulp, in 1799 “Robert Nicholas” the French scientist, who designed the first paper machine to the world. In 1809 “John Dickinson” patented a cylinder Machine which resulted in better with speed of learning and research work. Later on papermaking has becomes a seed industry at every inch and fairish of the world. INDIAN PAPER INDUSTRY: Paper industry in India is the 15th largest paper industry in the world. It provides employment to nearly 1.5 million people and contributes rupees 25billion to the governments kitty. The government regards the paper industry as one of the 35 high priority industries of the country. Unlike Iron and Steel, Textile and Sugar Industries the paper making industry did not exist in ancient India. For writing purposes “Bojapatra (bank of trees) and Talpatra (leaves of Palm) were used some of our oldest manuscripts preserved up to the present time were written on these materials. The modern art papermaking came to India quite late and perhaps the foundations of the modern paper Industry were laid about 1870.

But subsequently the Indian paper mills relied mainly on sabai grass available in Uttar Pradesh and Nepal. the Industry in Bengal was better placed even after paying freight on the supplies of grass obtained from long distance. But as only a little over 2 tons of raw material and nearly 4 tons coal were required for every ton of finished paper. „Industries which use coarse. SULLURPETA Page 4 .Employee Welfare Measures The Titaghar Paper Mills was established in 1881 in Bengal and since the Industry has been growing and spreading in different parts of the Country. if the mills Bengal could enjoy the advantage of cheaper of cheaper supplies of local coal. Perhaps in the beginning the Titaghar mills used cotton rage a first class material for making the best varieties of paper. In the care of paper industry it is possible to prepare the wood pulp near the forests and then turn into paper in industrial and popular centers. But with the introduction of Bamboos a superior‟s raw material the GKCE. Neither Bengal nor Uttar Pradesh enjoyed and distinct advantage. The subsequent stages are located near the consumer markets where half finished goods are given final shape by additional application of labor. the Industry in Uttar Pradesh possessed the advantage of grass. The first stages of these industries are generally located near the sources of supply of heavy materials were these material are changed into half finished goods almost into materials. Canada and the Baltick countries of Europe wish their extensive soft wood forests of the Northern Hemisphere and cheap hydro electric power are the homes of the most important wood pulp and paper industries of the world. A brief discussion of the natural resources shows that the beginning when sabi and other greases were the principal raw materials and coal the main source of power. For interiors yellow varieties of paper even the Munj grass was used. heavy and weight-losing materials like wood and timber where in a considerable loss of weight takes place in the first stage may usually seek different locations in different stages. Besides this the advantage of the paper market at Calcutta was there. Wood pulp is manufactured just on the out skirts of the forests and is supplied to the paper making centers inside their own country and is exported to distant lands like Japan and India.

P. The paper industry using Bamboo as raw material was given the benefit of protective duties in 1925 and since then the progress of industry has been fairly satisfactory. In 1951. Thus supplies of bamboo and coal near at hand and a big market for paper. and today there are about 515units engaged in the manufacture of paper and paper boards and newsprint in India. In the Madras region also the resource position was not helpful for the development of the industry. there were 17 paper mills. Those industries which have capacity above 24. and the Punjab came next. SULLURPETA Page 5 . The development of hydroelectric power in many regions of the country has considerably help the inter-regional dispersion of the industry. After the development of hydroelectric power the position of other bamboo producing regions in Kerala. Bengal continued to enjoy a position of great advantage for the development of paper industry.Employee Welfare Measures Industry in Bengal was placed as constantly advantageous position. power and markets are very clearly visible in the regional distribution of the industry between 1925 and 1948. Mysore and Hyderabad was also considerably improved. U. The pulp and paper industries in India have been categorized into large scale and small scale. GKCE.
