1 INTRODUCTION

A project is well organized and undertaken with related activities to achieve a goal of the study.

This project was undertaken at GANDHIMATHI APPLIANCES LTD. The Company is a profit

making organization, which manufactures and sells products like Cookers, flasks, mixers etc., It

export products to other countries which serves as source of revenue for the company.

Efficiency of the organization depends upon how well they manage their short term funds.

Hence, a study on working capital management is done in “GANDHIMATHI APPLIANCES

LTD”. Working Capital Management is concerned with the problems arise in attempting to

manage the Current assets, Current liabilities and the inter relationship between them. The goal

of working capital management is to manage the firm’s current assets and current liabilities in

such a way that the satisfactory level of working capital is maintained. The current assets should

be large enough to cover its current liabilities in order to ensure a reasonable margin of safety.

Working Capital Management policies have a great effect on firm’s profitability, liquidity and its

structural health. A Finance Manager should, therefore, check out appropriate working capital

management policies to ensure higher profitability, proper liquidity and sound structural health

of the organization

Every business needs adequate liquid resources in order to maintain day-To-day cash flow. It

needs enough cash to pay wages and salaries as they fall due and to pay creditors if it is to keep

its workforce and ensure its supplies.

1

Maintaining adequate working capital is not just important in the short-term. Sufficient liquidity

must be maintained in order to ensure the survival of the business in the long-term as well.

Even a profitable business may fail if it does not have adequate cash flow to meet its liabilities as

they fall due. Therefore, when businesses make investment decisions they must not only

Consider the financial outlay involved with acquiring the new machine or the new building, etc,

but must also take account of the additional current assets that are usually involved with any

expansion of activity. Increased production tends to engender a need to hold additional stocks of

raw materials and work in progress. Increased sales usually mean that the level of debtors will

increase. A general increase in the firm’s scale of operations tends to imply a need for greater

levels of cash.

1.2 INDUSTRY PROFILE

India has emerged as one of the world's top ten countries in industrial production as per
UNIDO's new report titled 'Yearbook of Industrial Statistics 2010'.India surpassed Canada,
Brazil and Mexico in 2009 to reach the 9th position from the 12th position it held in 2008.

The Index of Industrial Production (IIP) quick estimates data for October 2010 shows a
growth of 11.3 per cent in the manufacturing sector as compared to October 2009. The
cumulative growth during April-October 2009-10 over the corresponding period of 2008-09 is 11
per cent, according to data by the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation.

The selling industry in India is generally defined as a low investments and high returns
affair. The rapid growth of the selling market in India means that sales in the country could bring
in more than $1 billion by the fiscal year ending March 2013. The World Federation of direct
Selling Associations made the forecast.

The Association pointed out that the current Indian market for direct selling products is
worth around U$600m and provides employment to around 1.8 million people, of which 1.2
million are women. Hence, though India continues to witness a phenomenal growth of shopping
malls and specialty retail stores, direct selling industry, too, is on a fast route to success.

GROWTH TRENDS:

India is ranked second in terms of manufacturing competence, according to report '2010
Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index', by Deloitte Touché Tohmatsu and the US
Council on Competitiveness. The report states that the country's talent pool of scientists,
researchers, and engineers, together with its English-speaking workforce and democratic regime
make it an attractive destination for manufacturers.

India, the direct selling industry has shown a robust growth, bringing numerous
individuals in its fold through its entrepreneurial nature of activity. Today, the industry
encompasses a size of INR 33,300 million, bringing into its fold nearly 1.8 million people and
having posted a healthy growth rate of 17% in 2008-2009.”

it’s a cash outflow: The Company had to shell out money to buy the extra assets. When changes in working capital are negative. changes in working capital are a little like capital spending: its money the company is investing—in things like inventory—in order to grow. When a company increases its current assets. Likewise. the company is investing heavily in its current assets. one can add back changes in working capital to cash flow from operations. the company is either selling off current assets or else raising its current liabilities. When changes in working capital are positive. To get a true picture of the cash a company is generating before investment. provide money. Another point: A negative value for changes in working capital could mean the company is investing heavily in growth. For the Pros For many growing companies.CHANGES: The excess of current assets over current liabilities is referred to as the company’s working capital. The difference between the working capital for two given reporting periods is called the change in working capital. when a company increases its current liabilities. Changes in working capital simply show the net effect on cash flows of this adding and subtracting from current assets and current liabilities. or that something’s 23 . or else drastically reducing its current liabilities. Changes in working capital is included in cash flow from operations because companies typically increase and decrease their current assets and current liabilities to fund their ongoing operations. it’s a cash inflow: The added liabilities. such as short-term debt.

AN OPERATIONAL AUDIT OF WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT Abstract An operational audit (or value-for-money audit) is an organized search for ways of improving efficiency and effectiveness. the objective is to assist managers in performing their daily functions more effectively and economically. However. In effect. Virtually all large companies conduct operational audits in their major production and service departments. Urges those organizations seeking concentrated working capital reduction 2. an operational audit is an early warning system for the detection of potentially destructive problems. Traditionally. Proposes that stock reduction generates system-wide financial improvements and other important benefits. operational audits have been conducted by means of a questionnaire interview of departmental employees. Working capital management: an urgent need to refocus Abstract Argues that attempts to improve working capital by delaying payment to creditors are counter- productive to individuals and to the economy as a whole. Although internal auditors have traditionally performed most operational audits. Claims that altering debtor and creditor levels for individual tiers within a value system will rarely produce any net benefit. Perhaps this oversight is caused by the view that the controllership and treasury functions are high-level departments that are not susceptible to scrutiny by internal 27 . working capital management has often been ignored in these audits.
