It was a tremendous feeling to observe the working of Finance Department. Barauni. During my training I realized that in order to be a successful manager one needs to possess a sound theoretical base along with the acumen for effective practical application of the theory. It was overwhelming for us to notice how such a big refinery is being managed with proper co-ordination to obtain desired results. I was fortunate that I was provided with an opportunity of undergoing summer internship at INDIAN OIL CORPORATION Ltd. I hope that this summer internship will serve as a stepping-stone for me and will help me in being successful in future.. one of the leading refineries in India. Table of Contents .Summer Internship plays a vital role in the development of future managers. Thus. it also bridges the gap between theory and practical knowledge. The experience gained during this short period was fascinating to say the least. Not only does it provide insights about the organisation concerned.

In 1959. The government‟s 1948 industrial policy resolution declared the oil industry to be an area of the economy that should be reserved for state ownership and control. theIndianOil Company was founded as a statutory body.Wartime rationing lasted until 1950. stipulating that all new units should be government owned unless specifically authorized.Indian oil owes its origin to the Indian government‟s conflict with foreign oil companies in the period immediately following India‟s independence in 1947.the leaders of the newly independent state found that much of the country‟s oil in dustry was effectively in the hands of a private monopoly led by a combination of British owned oil companies Burmah and Shell and U. and a shortage of oil products continued until well after independence. it emerged as the nation‟s major marketing body for the export and import of oil and gas.
