$ttitude Measureent
Attitude is psychological constructs, a way of conceptualizing the
intangible. Attitude can! really be observed or measured directly because
their e'istence is inferred from their conse3uences. Attitudes are mental
states used by individuals to structure the way they perceived their
environment and guided the way respond to it.
ypes of Attitude measurements +cale- here are four types of
measurement scale as follows.
#. %oinal #cale: &n a nominal scale, ob"ects are assigned to
mutually e'clusive, labeled categories but there is no necessary
relationship among the categories.
$. &rdinal #cale: An ordinal scale is obtained by arranging them in
order with regards to some common variable. he 3uestion is simply
whether each ob"ect has more or less of this variable than some
other ob"ects.
(. !nterval #cale: &n an interval scale the numbers used to rank the
ob"ects also represent e3ual increments of the attributes being
measured.
4. Ratio #cale: A ratio scale is a special kind of interval scale that
has a natural zero point.
he 5ominal +cale is used while designing the 3uestionnaire. Both close
ended and open ended 3uestions are put together in the 3uestionnaire.

 Based on my ovservation & found that reliance fresh is not able to
make an advertisement properly as compare to big bazaar or other
retail store which is its competitor. so company should make a
proper team to let the people aware about their schemes and o=ers
being given by reliance fresh.
 *ompany should increase the number of counter so that it may
minimize the 3uie of the customers.
 *ompany should ac3uire more and more skilled people so that it
may satisfed their customer in all areas.
PR&MT%E## !% #ER8!CE#:
 *ompany should pay kind attention towards the e'isting customer
and try to provide them 3uick response in the sphere of services so
that they become B+52!+ loyal customers.
 Many corporate houses was there who were reluctant to use bsnl
lease line provided that someone assure them to have a promt
services from them.
#C9EME#:
 Main competitor Airtel ata and 9eliance comes with various
schemes and margins on the other hand Bsnl is not giving any sort
of scheme and discount that is why many clients were inclined
toward using the lease line o=ered by other players..
After all business is all about proft and retailer wants some proft
and margins.

&t was a pleasant e'perience to have a summer pro"ect in a big company
like B+52. &t has given me an opportunity to know all dimensions of the
market and how to tackle problems of it .& have learned various functions
carried out at all the level of organization especially of middle level and
lower level. After a rigorous period of my pro"ect & come to know that how
practical knowledge is di=erent from the theoretical concepts.
& was supposed to do pro"ect in %elhi where B+52 is playing ma"or role in
the feld of telecommunication having a market share of appro'imately
>(? ./ther players are Airtel 9eliance and ata.india has a large market
size and it is increasing day by day.
@rom the survey and analysis of data it can be concluded that still there is
a big opportunity to convert small and big clients. But some how company
is lagging behind in the era of cutthroat competition .company is unable to
make good relationship with corporate clients. Main rival Airtel is trying
to capture more market share with their new ideas and plan. As B+52 is
concern the company should become liberal on his policies. *ompany
should give the clients more facilities so that they may became new
clients and may continue through it. he company also needs a proper
marketing wing to operate well in this areas and accomplish the goal
,mission and vision of the company.
