Budgets can be prepared for and used by anyone and anything. That is, we can prepare and use personal budgets and organizations, ministries and non profit making organizations can all use them. Budgets, by definition, have to be prepared in advance; and for this reason, they are often referred to in terms of their being part of a feed forward system. Feedback is a term frequently heard both in accounting and ordinary use. Feed forward, on the other hand tends to be less frequently heard, yet this word incorporates the most important aspect of budgeting: looking at situations in advance, thinking about the impact and implications of things in advance, attempting to take control of situations in advance.

BUDGET
A budget is quantitative expression of a plan. It is commonly used by business firms, government agencies, non-profit institutions, and even households. Budget is a financial statement, prepared prior to a defined period of time of the policy to be pursued during that period for the purpose of attaining a given objective. Budgets quantity the planned financial effects of activities aimed at continuous improvement and cost reduction. Well managed organizations usually have the following budgeting cycle : 1. Planning the performance of the organization as a whole as well as its submits. The entire management team agree as to what is expect. 2. Providing a frame of reference, a set of specific expectations against which actual results can be compared. 3. Investigation variations from plans if necessary, corrective action follows investigation. 4. Planning again, considering feedback and changed conditions.

12

OBJECTIVES OF SETTING BUDGET


1. A budget is a blue print of the desired plan of action or operation plans covering the entire organization and all its functions like purchases, production, sales, financial requirements, research and development are expressed through budgets. The budget serves as a declaration of policies and also defines the objectives fro executives at all levels of management. 2. Budgets provide a means of co-ordination of business as a whole. In the process of establishing budgets, the various factors like production capacity, sales, possibilities and procurement of material, labour etc. are balanced and coordinated so that all the activities proceed according to the objectives. Budgets inculcate team spirit and are like putting so man people together to solve a common problem. 3. Budgets are means of communication. Complex plan laid down by the top management are passed on to those who are responsible for putting them into action. 4. Budget facilities centralized control with delegated authority and responsibility as they are grouped according to the responsibilities of different executive levels, they facilitate decentralization of work. Hence budgets are instruments of managerial control by means of which the management can measure performance in every part of the concern and take corrective action as soon as any variation from budget emerges.

13

CLASSIFICATION OF BUDGETS
Budgets are classified according to the different purposes they serve. The budgets can be classified according to : 1. The coverage they encompass 2. The capacity to which they are related 3. The condition on which they are based 4. The period which they cover BUDGETs :-

CHARACTERISTICS OF A BUDGET
A good budget is characterized by the following : 1. Participation: involve as many people as possible in drawing up a budget. 2. Comprehensiveness: embrace the whole organization. 3. Standards: base it on established standards of performance. 4. Flexibility: allow for changing circumstances. 5. Feedback: Constantly monitor performance. 6. Analysis of costs and revenues: this can be done on the basis of product lines, departments or cost centres.

ADVANTAGES OF BUDGETING AND BUDGETARY CONTROL


There are a number of advantages to budgeting and budgetary control: 1. Compels management to 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. 2. 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.

15

3. Promotes coordination and communication. 4. 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 results against budget plan. Departures from budget can then be investigated and the reasons for the differences can be divided into controllable and non-controllable factors. 5. Enables remedial action to be taken as variances emerge. 6. Motivates employees by participating in the setting of budgets. 7. Improves the allocation of scarce resources. 8. Economies management time by using the management by exception principle.

PROBLEMS IN BUDGETING
Budgets may be an essential part of any marketing activity they do have a number of disadvantages, particularly in perception terms. 1. Budgets can be seen as pressure devices imposed by management, thus resulting in : 2. Bad labor relations 3. Inaccurate record keeping 4. Departmental conflict arises due to : 5. Disputes over resource allocation 6. Departments blaming each other if targets are not attained.

16

7. It is difficult to reconcile personal / individual and corporate goals. 8. Waste may arise as managers adopt the view, we had better spend it or we will lose it. This is often coupled with Empire building in order to enhance the prestige of a department. 9. Responsibility versus controlling, i.e. some costs are under the influence of more than one person, e.g. power costs. 10. Managers may over-estimate costs so that they will not be blamed in the future should they overspend.

system improvement or for cost saving are also being discussed during review.

DIRECTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH FINDINGS


1. Due to avoidable and non-avoidable circumstances, variance is noted in actual and budgets. 2. Budgets are prepared on the assumption that certain condition will prevail. Because of future uncertainties, assumed conditions may not prevail necessitating the revision of budgetary targets. The frequent revision of targets will reduce the value of budgets and revisions involve huge expenditure too. Every department head worries for his departmental goals without thinking of the business goals. Every department tries to get maximum allocations of funds and this raises a conflict among different department

4.1 BUDGET FORMULATION


KEY FACTORS
The starting point for preparing budget at unit level is to determine companies limiting factor e.g. Sales forecasts, raw-material availability. In case of VPL unit, the production capacity is taken as the limiting factor. Therefore the units production budget is the pivot around which all functional budgets are prepared. The budget factor constitutes the starting point for the preparation of many budgets. The budget factor highlights the limitation of the undertaking as for e.g. Production capacity is the limiting factor of VPL.

4.2 BUDGET ANALYSIS


The basic objective of budget analysis is to modulate the goal-oriented behavior of the units and help them formulate and achieve right objectives. The unit budgets would be analyzed at the unit / corporate level on the following parameters. 1. PRODUCTION For determining a units performance production budget is the key variable i.e. the variable whose performance will have most significant impact on the units working. The units production budget would be analyzed on the following basis.

2. CAPACITY UTILIZATION Capacity utilization budged for Ring Frame and other balancing machines Combers and Autoconers shall be analyzed with respect to 1. Past performance 2. Performance by other units 3. Bench marks Inconsistencies and deviations would be worked out and reasons there of like power, labour machine balancing, raw material etc. shall be examined. 3. PRODUCTIVITY The account wise budgeted productivities of Ring Frame would be analyzed on the basis of :58

1. Past Performance 2. Performance By Other Units 3. Productivity Norms 4. Actual count 5. Mixing Composition 6. Health Of Machines 7. Ring Diameter 8. Environment Conditions

4. WASTE Another key variables for analyzing production budget of a unit is waste budget. The budgeted waste determine how effectively the process control measures have been designed by the unit. The waste budget shall be evaluated keeping in view the following : 1. Department wise process wise waste generation carded, combed 2. Past performance 3. Other units performance 4. Bench marks 5. Trash content in cotton 5. EXPENSES The analysis of expenses is essential to determine the impact of these on cost of production. The parameters to be analyzed are :

59

RAW MATERIALS The raw material cost needs to be closely examined because 70% of total cost is on account of raw material. The raw material purchase is undertaken at the group level and the raw material department indicates the budgeted prices. However, at the unit level, the raw material budget would be analyzed in term of. 1. Raw material mix 2. Yarn realization 3. Waste recovery 4. Clean cotton cost In analyzing raw material mix, group standards and mixings used by other units &target given by Corporate can be taken into consideration.

MANUFACTURING EXPENSE The analysis of various direct expenses budgeted by the unit shall be done to as certain cost effectiveness.

1. POWER: Power significance as it is the second highest cost of input next to Raw material cost. Power cost shall be analyzed keeping in view the following parameters. 2. No. of units per spindle shift 3. Cost of generation of power 4. Proposed hike in P.S.E.B rates. 5. Trends of fuel prices. 60

6. Maintenance schedule of own generated set. The analysis shall be done taking into consideration the previous year consumption and consumption and consumption levels of other units having similar count patterns.

MAINTENANCE COST In this analysis of maintenance, engineering and production budget is done. The analysis of various indirect expenses shall be made to ascertain their impact on production cost. The various indirect expenses which are to be analyzes are: A. SELLING EXPENSES Budgeted cost of advertising, sales promotion, freight and commission shall be studied in relation to previous years expenses and new requirements etc.

B. PERSONNEL EXPENSES 1. WAGES: The total budgeted wage cost shall be analyzed in terms of previous years cost and experience of other units and also other factors like statutory wage revision and wage agreement etc. The wage cost shall also be analyzed with reference to process wise, category wise deployment of man power along with workloads. 2. SALARY : Department wise deployment of officers and staff shall be analyzed keeping in view the following : 3. Sanctioned strength 4. Past record 5. Deployment in other units 61

C FIXED WAGES COST Wage cost incurred on Overlookers and other personnel engaged in service departments shall be analyzed on the basis of past experience, per spindle cost and possibility of cost reduction. EXPENSES TRAINING EXPENSES Budgeted training activities and associated cost like wages during training period, faculty cost, study material cost, etc. shall be analyzed taking into consideration capacity plan expansion and normal turnover. Deployment of trainees shall be studied against bench marks and previous years deployment. In using budget as an instrument of control, actual result will be compared with the budgeted on monthly / quarterly basis to prepare periodic performance report and to identify deviation. An analysis of variances can help understand the problem better and take appropriate corrective action. The variances can occur on account of the following : 6. Caused by un-controllable facts like government policies, raw material prices, production, marketing problems etc. 7. Caused by managerial decisions not initially planned e.g. product mix change. Controllable factors, which need to be carefully investigated.

BUDGETARY CONTROL
Control activity is fundamental to all living systems. In the context of organization it is crucial to the achievement of goals and objectives. The control process essentially involves measurement of the actual state and comparison with desired state. Budgetary control system is one of the important control system employed in an organization. It includes preparation of budgets which means the setting out the desired state and comparison with actual state. (Budgetary Control). IDENTIFICATION OF KEY FACTORS In every firm, there are critical factor which sets a limit to its level of activity. Often, the expected demand, production capacity of the firm, availability of power, raw material availability and some time finance for the budgeting, as it determines the scope and level of operations. Budgetary Control : It is the process of determining various budgeted figures for the enterprises for the future period and then comparing the budgeted figures with the actual performance for calculating variance, if any. First of all the budgets are prepared and then actual are recorded. The comparison of budgeted and actual figures will enable the management to find out the discrepancies and take remedial measures at a proper time. The budgetary control is a continuous process which help in planning and coordination. It provides a method of control too. A budget is a means and budgetary control is the endresult. Budgetary control refers to the principles, procedures and practices of achieving given objectives through budgets.

63

Definition According to the company Budgetary control involves the use of budget and budgetary reports, throughout the period to coordinate, evaluate and control day operation in accordance with the goals specified by the budget. Budgetary control involves preparation of budgets and business is divided into various responsibility centers for preparing the various budgets. The budgeted and actual figures compared for studying the performance of different cost centers if actual performance is less than the budgeted norms a remedial action is taken immediately management information system is used in finance and accounting for budgetary control purposes.

64

DEVELOPMENT OF BUDGETS The preparation of individual budget deciding upon scope of budgets, suitable time to start budgeting scheme, requirement of budgets. In VPL, costing department is responsible for compilation of the budgets in set forms. All departments prepare their budgeted requirements and achievements based on the standard norms, past performance, capacity utilization, guarantee of the supply and many others. The costing department finally checks the final budgets and send to the corporate Head Office, Ludhiana for its approval. PROCEDURE FOR PREPARING BUDGETS IN VPL 1. Functional budgets are prepared at each departmental level. Each head of department prepares budget estimates of items of expense controllable at its level. 2. After the functional budgets are compiled, master budget is prepared and analysis by the costing department. Master budget provides an overall view of the structure of the unit. 3. Master budget is discussed at unit level by unit head alongwith all departments heads. A representation is made by the costing head. For future analysis the budgets are sent to corporate MIS, Ludhiana. 4. Actual of last years and budgeted of this year are analysed. The Chairman thoroughly analysis these budget. The budget is compared with budgeted figures of other units. 5. A final meeting at the corporate level is held where budget is discussed.

BUDGETARY CONTROL IN VARDHMAN POLYTEX LTD.


In using budget as an instrument of control, the actual results will be compared with the budgeted an monthly / quarterly basis to prepare periodic performance report and to identify deviations. An analysis of variations can help to understand the problem better and appropriate corrective action can be taken. The variances can occur on account of the following : 6. Caused by uncontrollable facts like Govt. policies, raw material prices, production, marketing problems etc. 7. Caused by managerial decisions not initially planned e.g. product exchange. 8. Controllable factors, which need to be carefully investigated. The various analysis also helps and isolate the impact of each important variable leading to useful insights in the underlying causes and fixing responsibilities. As I have already mentioned that Vardhman Polytex Limited, Bathinda belongs to Oswal Group of Industries. The corporate office of the organization is situated at Ludhiana. All the information relating to various departments flow from units to corporate office. The corporate office analyze the information and data supplied by the units and convey the facts to the top management for the purpose of planning, coordinating and controlling. In Vardhman Polytex Limited, budgets are prepared by different cost centers for the purpose of budgetary control.

66

Budget preparation and control is done at every level of management. Even though budgets are finalized at top level but involvement of persons from lower levels of management is essential for their success. The budgets are prepared on the basis of key factor, a factor which influences all other budgets and key factor is sales, and production, raw material and power cost. Budgets are prepared on the sales factor. Costing department is empowered to scrutinize the budgets prepared by different functional heads and to make changes them, if the situation so demands. Annual budget is prepare before the start of every financial year. Then the actual performance of different departments is collected and analyzed by costing and MIS Department. He determines the deviations in the budgets and suggests necessary steps to rectify the deficiencies, if any. He works as a coordinate among different department and monitor the relevant information. To prepare budget for next year, a meeting is called to know what to do in future and the various departments are informed about the meeting. Different department give information and projections relating to their department. As mentioned periodic reports are prepared and analyzed by costing department. A presentation on monthly performance is given by costing department in monthly review. Any deviation found are highlighted and conveyed to concerned department for corrective action

5.1 FINDINGS
After the analysis of various costs, procedures and reports we can find that cost accounting system adopted by Vardhman Polytex Ltd. Bathinda for reflecting the accurate cost of production of the final product i.e. yarn is adequate. Here is control cost by the respective department heads. Budgetary control system is adopted. Budgetary control includes preparation of for planning and comparison of actual with budgeted figures for control purposes. Proper presentation and reporting the information to the Management and Head Office. The reports are filed on the daily, weekly, monthly quarterly and annually namely : 1. Annual Budget 2. Monthly Budget 3. Annual Review 4. Monthly Review 5. Trends Report 6. Daily Cost Sheet 7. Other reports Annual review and monthly review are complete reviews of the performance of units activities. Actual results are compared with budgets. Variances are noted and analysis is done. These reviews contains various reports. Daily cost sheet monitors the cost and profitability on daily basis. It reflects the changing in cost and cash profit. Monthly meeting are held to discuss the monthly reviews. Corrected actions are suggested by various heads of departments in case of variances. The Head Office also analyses the reports and sends suggestions.

5.2 SUGGESTIONS
71

1. An effective system of communication is required for successful budgetary control. The flow of information regarding budget should be quick so that these are implemented. The performance reports of various levels will help top management in budgetary control. 2. Flexibility in budgets is required to make them suitable under changed circumstances. 3. The proper organization is essential for successful preparation, maintenance and administration of budgets. A budgetary committee must be formed which comprises the departmental heads of various departments. 4. Though annual budgets are prepared and are discussed in length. Monthly budgets should also be discussed with respective heads and at corporate level. 5. Budgets are normally based on conventional basis. Concept of Zero base budgeting should be adopted wherever possible. 6. As the actual results are collected from accounts books, which sometimes provide difficulties in analysis because of common head for difference type of expenses. 7. Activity based costing system should be used where the same can be used to provide better monitoring. 8. Variance reports are prepared on monthly basis and are being communicated to respective department head but no action plan is provided by the department to overcome with variances.

7
72

9. In the present era, rapid changes are being observed on day to day basis. While preparing annual budget a deep forecasting based on historical data and likely future trend is required which normally doesnt happen. 10. Budgeting exercise is confined to arrive at PBDIT only. Other financial expenses are not being considered to arrive at cash accruals / net profit and depreciation.

5.3 CONCLUSION
Various reports such as annual budget, monthly budget, annual review, monthly review and commercial review are studied for control purposes. The variances are due to the assumptions which are considered during the preparation of budgets. Moreover, variances are there due to change in rate and quantity, staff turnover e.g. as company purchases cotton in bulk during August to March so the value of raw material gets affected. The deviation in actual and budgeted reports helps the head of costing and MIS departments to control over various capital and revenue expenditure and budgetary control aims at the maximization of profits of the organization. The budgetary control helps in the coordination among different departments of the organization. Reviews are prepared so that necessary actions are taken at the earliest time and it will help in the determination of weak spots. Control is continuous process.

6.1 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY


As budgets are prepared for the future period so situation which, is presumed to prevail in future may change. Time to study concept of budgetary control is very limited. Identification of the persons, involved in Budgeting. Study of functioning of company was limited to Bathinda, so I was not able to study in detail about inventory management a system that was based at Ludhiana.
