EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals Ltd. Is one of the India leading Lime stone, Rock Phosphate, Lignite producer in other non-ferrous mineral. It was incorporated as Govt. of India enterprises under the ministry of minerals & depa rtment of mines, on January 10, 1966 after takeover of erstwhile minerals corpor ation of India limited, to own to manage and develop mining and lead minerals in the country. The main objective is to substantially meet the domestic demand of minerals.

I have undergone training in Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals Ltd., a primer sme lter of RSMM which is engaged in production of high lminerals. The main objective of this study are: To analysis the limestone in marketing in RSMM. To study the organization working pattern at RSMM. To analysis the sales policy of RSMM. The research is exploratory in nature and the data used is primary data as well as secondary data. Primary data were collected through questionnaire, observatio n and from the instruction and inputs provided by my supervisor. Secondary data was majorly obtained from the company’s annual statements, work b ooks, fact sheets, magazines journals and websites. The report also analyses and interprets the major findings which are: The marketing policy of the company is to peruse direct sales to keep in touch with consumer and market. A survey shows that about 98% of the customer are satisfied with the RSM M products which clearly signifies that company gives top priority to customer s atisfaction. Through the report I have also tried to make some suggestion for im proving the work efficiency and better productivity as under: The company may set up it’s own captive power plant as early as possible . Rajasthan suffers from chronic shortage of power and this plant will go a long way in providing the quantity of power which will smoothen the production proce ss and make it possible to achieve the target level. Services are good but due to non-availability of material and less production of plant due to several break downs services are badly affected, hence it is essen tial to improve for good services Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals Limited (RSMML) is one of the premier public se ctor enterprises of the Government of Rajasthan, primarily engaged in mining and marketing of industrial minerals in the State. The very objective of the compan y is to achieve cost effective technological innovations in the mining of minera ls and to diversify into mineral based downstream projects. Apart from the above , the Company is also aiming at long term fuel supply to lignite based power pro jects, apart from setting up wind energy farms at Jaisalmer. This company is pro fessionally managed and remains focused towards increasing productivity growth Rajasthan State Mines and Minerals limited (RSMML) is one of the leading and pro gressive undertaking of the Government of Rajasthan. It occupies a place of prid e in production and marketing of non metallic minerals of India. RSMML is multi mineral and multi location enterprise engaged in mining of Rock Phosphate, Lign ite, SMS grade Limestone and Gypsum. RSMML is not only the leader in Mining & S elling of Rock Phosphate, Gypsum across the country, but also global pioneer in technology in open cast mining and mineral beneficiation of Carbonate Rock Phosp hate. Besides minerals, RSMML has also forayed into Energy Sector and has setup 74.80 MW installed capacity Wind Power Project at Jaisalmer, Rajasthan

BOARD OF DIRECTOR

The present constitution of the Board is as under: 1. Smt. Kushal Singh, IAS – Chairman Chief Secretary to the Government of Rajasthan, Jaipur 2. Shri C S Rajan, IAS Principal Secretary to the Government of Rajasthan, Department of Industries, Jaipur 3. Shri S Ahmed, IAS Principal Secretary to the Government of Rajasthan, Department of Agriculture, Jaipur 4. Shri C.K. Mathew, IAS Principal Secretary to the Government of Rajasthan, Department of Finance, Jaipur 5.

Shri Sanjay Malhotra, IAS Managing Director, Udaipur

SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTH: (1) Jhamarkotra lime stone mines of RSMM is one of the largest wellmachanize d open cast mines of AISA, which is most modern and scientifically laid out mine s. (2) Industrial Benefication Plant of RSMML,converting low grade ore of rock phosphate into higher concentrate is the only plant of its kind in the world. (3) In RSMML, Research & Development activities are integral part of the bus iness activities . Extensive computerization along with the advance software i s being used for evaluation of natural resources and financial analysis to optim ize resources utilization (4) The service condition and welfare facilities given to the workmen are ve ry attractive and handsome. The employees are satisfied with the facilities and services given by the company. The rate of turnover is almost zero and since its inception no strike or lock out in the organization (5) RSMML is having its own and separate marketing dept. at corporate office , Udaipur

WEAKNESS RSMML being a big corporation and having its activities all over India, also having some weakness which should be removed (1) optimum capacity utilization is not done at the mines (2) the prices of rockphosphate offered by RSMML are very in comparison to t he other suppliers including the foreign suppliers. (3) The services offered by the RSMML to their customer, especially after sa le services is not very satisfactory. (4) There should be regular visit of the technical person of RSMML to the SS P units.

OPPORTUNITIES (1) in the era of economic liberalization, RSMML may expedite the matter fo r obtaining ISO-9000 or 9002 in order to access an extra mileage fo their brand quality (2) most of the customer have strong faith on the quality of material offere d by the RSMML therefore, RSMML may convert his faith in to business by targetin g potential and occasional and by improving the quality of the present services (3) there are many opportunity for the organization for expansion and divers ification of its activities in India as well as abroad THREATS (1) the Govt.of India has controlled the entire business of phosphatic ferti lizers and potassic fertizers. And as such any change in the Govt. policies in f uture may adversely affect the company business. (2) Change in technology in near future may also prove to be a threat for th e organization (3) The natural reserves are of depleting nature. It is a threat of exhausti on of the deposits in future. (4) 70% of the totel demand of the rock phosphate is being fulfilled by impo rt from foreign suppliers . any redction in price by the foreign suppliers may a dversely affect the Indian market. AMALGAMATION Year 2003, witnessed completion of amalgamation of Rajasthan State Mineral Devel opment Corporation Limited (RSMDC), another Rajasthan State Government PSU with Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals Limited (RSMML) was issued by the Department of Company Affairs, Government of India (Order No. S.O.207(E) dated 19th February 2003) under Section 396 of the Companies Act, 1956 and the same has come into ef fect from 20th February, 2003, the date of its publication in the Gazette of Ind ia (Extraordinary). RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT The company has developed the organic fertilizer called Phosphate Rich Organic M anure (PROM) by using high grade rock phosphate with farm yard waste and other o rganic matter. The field trials conducted through the different agricultural uni versities in the country have shown that the agronomic efficacy of this new P-fe

rtilizer is higher than that of the complex phosphatic fertilizers available in the market today. ‘PROM’ is suitable to neutral and alkaline soils, which will p rove to be a boon to the Indian farmers. In the long run, this product will be a winner as it has significant price advantage vis-à-vis the other chemical ferti lizers. Commercialization of the PROM technology will help utilization of waste and also help in conservation of the mineral rock phosphate as PROM shows good r esidual effect. The company has put a major thrust on the R&D activities in the recent past and several new R&D projects have been taken up. • Research project taken up for development of fused Ca-Mg phosphate to ut ilize the vast reserves of low-grade ore of rock phosphate. • Converting tailing rejects of IBP to Direct Application Fertilizer for M agnesium deficient soils. • Research project taken up for possible commercial production of Bio-Dies el from Jetropha plant.

PROJECT PROFILE Mining – Limestone SANU LIMESTONE UNIT, JAISLAMER High quality Limestone is a technological necessity for Steel Plants with the ba sic oxygen furnance technology where it is used as a flux. After the closure of limestone q uarries at Dehradun by the historic judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court the li mestone from Jaisalmer found enormous importance in the Steel Industry. It was t he recommendation of the technical team constituted by Govt. of India in the yea r 1986 after assessing the various limestone deposits available in the country t hat the low silica limestone available from Jaisalmer is the best suited for use in the Steel Industry. Based on the recommendation mining of Limestone was comm enced by the company since 1988 for supply to different Steel Plants from their mines at Sanu. Jaisalmer limestone is best suitable for use in Steel Industry be cause of low silica and high decrepitation index. Hence the total production is dispatched to various Steel Plants of SAIL and TISCO. The company is the largest producer & supplier of steel grade limestone in the country This high grade, low silica, hard compact limestone is available in Khuiyala for mation of Eocene age of Tertiary period. The company have around 20.00 square KM area near village Sanu at a distance of 56 Km from Jaisalmer on Jaisalmer – Ram garh road & is well connected with all weather tar road maintained by Border Roa d Organization. The total mineral reserves under the areas held with the company are167 Million Tonnes of S.M.S grade limestone & 2153 Million Tonnes of Cement grade limestone. Company has enhanced its mineral reserve status by applying few more areas in the same belt. Open cast mining method with single bench, deploying HEMM and conducting deep ho le blasting is in practice. The sizing of ROM limestone is carried out by four n os. fully mechanized Sizing & screening plants of the total capacity 20.00 lac M T per annum.

The History Says Limestone was most popular in the early 20th and late 19th centuries. Train stat ions, banks and other structures from that era are normally limestone. The Present Scenario Travertine is a banded, compact variety of limestone formed along streams, cularly where there are waterfalls and around hot or cold springs. Calcium nate is deposited where evaporation of the water leaves a solution that is saturated with chemical constituents of calcite. Tufa a porous or cellular ty of travertine, is found near waterfalls. ________________________________________ parti carbo super varie

LIMESTONE is calcareous sedimentary rock composed of the mineral calcite (CaCO3) , which upon calcination yields lime (CaO) for commercial use. In its broadest i nterpretation the term includes any calcareous material such as marble, chalk, t ravertine, tufa, limeshell, coral and marl each possessing different and distinc t physical properties. The crystalline equivalents of limestone having the same chemical composition are calcite and aragonite. In nature, the limestone bed is found to occur in varying purity, generally a pa rt of the calcium molecules being replaced by magnesium tending towards magnesiu m limestone or dolomitic limestone. Limestone with more than10% of mineral dolom ite is termed dolomite limestone, and that with 5 to 10%, magnesium limestone. The rock containing more than 95% of calcium carbonate is termed high-calcium li mestone. Recrystallised limestone takes good polish and is used as decorative an d building stone. It is then called marble . A variety of other names is associated with limestone depending upon the modes o f occurrence, texture, and the remains of foraminifera, molluscs and other shell -forming creatures, for example, oolitic and pisolitic limestones, reostone, cri noidal limestone, foraminiferal limestone, calcareous ooze, bryozoa limestone, a rgillaceous and hydraulic limestons and the like. Oolitic limestone is the name given to granular limestone of which each grain co nsists of a series of concentric layers of calcium carbonate resembling the eggs of the fish. When it resembles the eggs of Roe fish, it is called Roestone. The name Pisolite-limestone is given when the grains are of the size of peas. Crinoidal limestone is a rock composed of encrinites with the remains of foramin ifera-molluscs and their lime forming organism. Such beds are commonly found in lower Carboniferous formations. Uses Limestone is quarried for roadbeds, building and landscape construction, and cem ent manufacture. Limestone is especially popular in architecture, and many landmarks around the w orld, especially in North America and Europe, are made primarily of the material . Limestone is readily available and relatively easy to cut into blocks or more elaborate carving. It is also long-lasting and stands up well to exposure. However, it is a very heavy material, making it impractical for tall buildings; it is also quite expensive. Limestone was most popular in the early 20th and lat e 19th centuries. Train stations, banks and other structures from that era are n ormally limestone. Limestone is used as a facade on some skyscrapers, but only i n thin sheets rather than solid blocks. In North America, most limestone used in construction comes from Indiana. Though the limestone used for construction is good for humid climates, it is vul nerable to acids, making acid rain a problem when it occurs in places where lime stone is used extensively. The acids in the water can wear away the details of s tatues and other art. Safety and Environment Protection Measure The Company is not only concerned with the increase in production only but also equally concerned about the safety in mines and environment protection measurers . The efforts made by the company in this regard were appreciated during the Saf ety week & Environment Week organized by the different Departments of Govt. of I

 

 

ndia. The mines of SBU were accredited with the number of awards under various categor ies like Reclamation & Rehabilitation of land, Nose & Vibration Control, Air Pol lution Control, Management of sub grade Mineral, Heavy Earth Moving Machinery & Maintenance, Opencast Working Place & Plans, Dust Suppression, Welfare amenities , Explosive, Transport Road, Vocational training & supervision, HEMM and Mainten ance, Welfare Amenities, Afforestation/Plantation etc. All mines of the SBU’s ar e ZERO accidents zone. Time to time training to the mine workers are imparted to cope up with latest technologies & also regular medical checkup are provided to each & every mine employees. The statutory obligations formulated by the Ministry of Environment & Forest, GO I & the State Pollution Control Board are complied with by the company. Regular monitoring six monthly bases is being carried out at each mine to monitor the am bient air quality. Despite of the adverse geographical location of the mines of the SBU’s , every year plantation programme are being carried out at mines as we ll as around office/residential complex. Social and Welfare Activities For the purpose of socio economic development of the areas falling under the wor king zone of SBU the company is taking all possible efforts to improve the socia l life of the surrounding villagers of the mine areas by generating direct & ind irect employment. Further, additional add is being provided to schools, panchaya t under social development activity. The main activities carried out by the comp any are as under:• Distributed books worth Rs.10,000/- in every Government Schools falling under the working area of the SBU. A sum of Rs.5.00 lakhs has been spent under t his head. • Provided two computers in secondary school falling near the working area of the Sanu mines. • Fund for construction of building for Cardiothoracic Centre at governmen t (MDM) Hospital, Jodhpur worth Rs.0.35 Crores has been released. Quarterly medical health camping in association of the respective CMHO in the vi llages • located around the mine site. Construction of village approach road connecting Sanu to near by villages in Jai salmer

CONCLUSION

1. the marketing policy of the co. is to persue direct sales to keep in tou ch with consumers and market. 2. A survey shows that about 98% of the customers are satisfied with the RS MM product which clearly signifies that company gives top priority to customer s atisfaction. 3. It has very strong position in domestic markets.

4. The credit policy followed by RSMM is almost satisfactory accepted by it s customers.

5.

Company has very good marketing channels to reach to its customers.

6. Company uses techniques like TQM, Quality Circles and suggestion schemes in order to have impressive growth pattern and to improve its productivity. 7. Company faces the problem of geographical diversification in RSMM lime s tone production. 8. It has limited market for bulk concentrates.

9. A availability of material is very low as compared to requirement which limits its customer to a certain number. SUGGESTIONS After having along this it’s various dimensions some aspects are seen worth impr ovement and some for adherence. For this purpose some suggestion have been broug ht under. • The company may setup it’s own captive power plant as early as possible. Rajasthan suffers from chronic shortage of power and this plant will go a long way in providing the quantity of power. Which will smoothen the production proce ss and make it possible to achieve the target level. • RSMM should maintain adequate stock of raw material so that there may be not shortage of raw material. The quality of 99.99% of SHG should be improved.

• To meet growing demand of lime stone. RSMM should expand the capacities of its factories at JHAMERKOTRA. • RSMM should adopt the policies for long term sales tie up with major reg ular customers. • Availability of material is very low as compared to requirement. Hence, it should be improve so that the customer can get the material on time . • For smoothing marketing of lime stone, RSMM allow credit facility minim um up to 90 days by allowing discount of the bills under letter of credit by thi rd party. Bill discounting Scheme should also be applicable to small customer. • For augmentation and diversification of mineral resources the company ha s to avail expertise with multinational corporation through joint venture and collaborations. • RSMM should be internationally competitive because Govt. of INDIA has in troduce a number of changes in industrial and mineral policies having profound i mplication. • Services are good but due to Non-availability of material and less produ ction of plant due to several brake downs services are badly affected, hence it is essential to improve for good services. • Steady supply of all grade of minerals by RSMM at reasonable prices will pay a crucial role in maintain it’s position as market leader.

In the liberalized environment efforts are needed to maintain and improved the m arket share of lime stone in the face of stiff competition from imports
