CONCLUSION
Every organization having strong willed and efficient manpower can always hope to reach the zenith of success. For this purpose training and development of the employees is very essential and this is normally decided on the basis of performance appraisal. Hence we see that implementing a well thoughtout, well-designed and planned appraisal system can do proper utilization of human resources. In this study, the perception of the respondents on the existing system. i.e. self-appraisal, acceptance of thep revailing system, desire for a new system etc. are analyzed statistically and presented in a systematic manner. Its effectiveness is judged from the opinion of the sample executives at OHPC. Most of the executives consider the appraisal process as an evaluation process useful for the employees and for the organization. Majority of them are satisfied with the selfappraisal system but due to lack of proper implementation and knowledge regarding the system the executives show some amount of dissatisfaction. They admit there is no system of 360-degree appraisal, and no feedback is provided to enhance the effectiveness of the employees. Organizations have to be alert and be in position to anticipate change and development strategies to counter change. While we always identify areas of growth and high performers in the organization, one must be conscious of those people who need improvement. Strategic plans must be in place to enhance the performance level of employees who are below par. It may not be due to skill mismatch but due to differences in integrating into the organizational culture. The system should also constantly identify and bridge the gaps, which arises from time to time. In addition, a successful performance evaluation system will need a well-defined succession plan. This must be carefully prepared by evaluating the skill set of the incumbent, based on which managers have to make an assessment to the possible successor.

SUGGESTIONS
On the basis of the analysis and interpretation of collected data the following suggestions are put forth to make the system effective and satisfactory.  A new development oriented appraisal system should be introduced in OHPC, where emphasis should be given to analysis than appraisal.  Performance planning and developmental plans should be carried out purposefully.  The purpose of appraisal system should not only be promotion but should be developmental.  Task force or committees should be formed regularly to study the working of appraisal process and its implementation.  Peer rating and subordinate rating which means a 360 degree appraisal system should be introduced to make the appraisal system more objective.  The task and target given to the appraise in time and must decided through mutual consent of both appraiser and appraise.  The performance review meeting should be carried out periodically.  Performance counseling should be given more attention.  Proper attention should be given to developmental plans.  Proper evaluation process should be carried out and biasness on part of the appraiser should be avoided.  Commitment of the top management which is the foremost requirement for a successful appraisal system and so it should come forward. Without their active involvement a new system may not achieve its ultimate goal. Management at every level should recognize their role in making the system successful.
