PRE FACE

Practical training is an important part of the theoretical


studies. It is of an immense importance in the field of
management. It offers the student to explore the valuable
treasure of experience and an exposure to real work culture
followed by the industries and there by helping the students
to bridge gap between the theories explained in the books
and their practical implementations.

Training plays an important role in future building of an


individual so that he/she can better understand the real
world in which he has to work in future. The theory greatly
enhance our knowledge and provide opportunities to blend
theoretical with the practical knowledge where trainees get
familiar with certain aspects of industries, like shop floor
management, production process and industrial relations. I
feel proud to get myself trained at Ballarpur Industry

4
Limited (Unit Shree Gopal), Yamuna Nagar. Ballarpur
Industry Limited is the leading paper manufacturing
Company in India.
I have taken up training in Marketing & Service Department
and have studied and explained the need for MARKETING
ANALYSIS as well as its management and financing. I
availed this opportunity in a very satisfactory manner and
have tried to cover each and every aspect that. I came across
during my training period.

HIS TOR Y A ND BACKG RO UN D


Shree Gopal Unit of Ballarpur industries Ltd was originally
established by The English companies known as “Foundation
Company of England” in 1925.
As the time of its establishment its name was “Punjab pulp and
paper mills” and its production capacity was 15-20 tones of
paper per day. This was based on grass and street collected rags
as a basic raw material. Since there was no electricity in the area
those days, it had its turbine and generator. Financial position of
the company was not sound; so all these factors forced the mill
to shut down. The mill remained shut for nearly 11 year.
Despite of the sporadic efforts by the management, the mill
could not be restored and was ultimately brought under
liquidation.
The mill was auctioned in 1936 and purchased by Lala Karam
Chand Thapar, In 1951, the group of Madhya Pardesh, on the
recommendation of shroff committee, offered in 1988 Himachal
Pradesh, Boilers and Power plant and TG Turbine was installed.
The production of electricity was raised to 18mw. In 1991, the

5
ABL recovery boilers started functioning and pollution was
controlled.
Today, this unit has got 6 paper machines and 1 coating plants &
a sophisticated specialty plant. It has also taken first step for
environment protection with the installation of electrostatics
precipitator for pollution control.

Merg er s & Ac qui si tio ns


New Delhi, June 5 (2006)

Ballarpur Industries Ltd (BILT) on Monday said that it was looking to


acquire a majority stake in a Malaysian-based paper and pulp company,
Sabah Forest Industries SDN BHD (SFI), jointly with JP Morgan for $ 261
million.

For the acquisition, BILT has entered into a conditional share purchase
agreement with JP Morgan, which will hold a 20 per cent stake in SFI.

SFI, which is a part of Malaysia's Lion Forest Industries, has a paper


capacity of 1,44,000 million tonne per annum (mtpa) and pulp capacity of
120,000 mtpa. The company would provide BILT access to around
2,89,000 hectares of forest land, which would be utilised for plantation
purposes. SFI also operates a timber and plywood mill, a jetty and power
and steam generation plant facility.

"We will begin the due diligence exercise for SFI, which would be
completed in the next 120 days," said Mr. Gautam Thapar, BILT
Chairman. He said that with this acquisition, BILT would be able to
produce one million tonne of paper and pulp by 2010. "While the
3,50,000 mtpa domestic expansion at the Bhigwan unit is on, the
acquisition in Malaysia gives us an additional 1,40,000 mtpa of paper, all
of which would raise our capacity to one million tonne per annum by
June 2010," Mr Thapar said.
Ballarpur, apart from benefiting from SFI's mill and forest lands, may
consider setting up a 5,00,000-tonne capacity pulp mill in Malaysia at an
estimated cost of $500 million, which may become operational by 2012,
Mr Thapar said.

"Besides providing access to integrated pulp and paper capacity of SFI, the
acquisition will help secure future availability of fibre for the company,"
Mr Thapar said.

The acquisition in Malaysia would help cut costs for BILT. According to
Mr R.R. Vederah, Joint Managing Director of BILT, "Costs in Malaysia are
nearly half of that in India, which is a big advantage for us."

Meanwhile, BILT's profit and revenue are likely to grow by "double-digit"


each year over the next 10 years due to a continued surge in demand for
paper in the country. "Paper demand grew 10 per cent last year. We
should be able to maintain the growth this year as well," Mr Thapar said.

Further, BILT said the company may go in for an across-the-board two


per cent increase in paper prices from July this year due to higher input
prices and increased demand.

BILT witnessed a 0.97 per cent increase in its share price at the Bombay
Stock Exchange to close at Rs 120 on Monday June 5(2006).

The main function of the marketing services department is Production


Planning, get finished paper from the mills and to dispatch it timely to its
destination.
Mainly the marketing of BILT, as well as of the Unit Shree opal depends
upon the Head Office at GURGAON. Apart from that BILT is also having
zonal offices in all the four zones of India.

Nor th zone : New De lhi , Pun jab, H.P , Ha ryana , J&K ,


Raja st han, U. P.

South z one : K er ela , T am ilnadu , Andh ra Pa rd esh , Karna taka.

Wes t z one : Mah ar as ht ra, G oa, Gu jar at, M. P, Da man.

Eas t z one : We st B eng al, Ass am , Manipur , Nagal and , T ripu ra.

All the major marketing decision regarding price, product, physical


distribution, promotion and packaging are initiated at the head office.
The most important information is taken from history or to say from the
past experience and performance. It is on the basis of the past
performance that current decisions are taken and for this, previous year’s
actual performances help the marketing services department of Shree
Gopal Unit and also the zonal office is taken one by one.
On the basis of previous years’ actual performance, the personnel at
marketing services Department estimate the actual production rate is for
the coming year. The production rate is calculated item wise and also
machine wise. Along with that the actual machine down and the
proposed shut down days are also calculated. This estimate is done month
wise i.e., starting form the month of January till December. After this ,
final programmed is made and the targets are fixed by calculating for the
coming year, the machine down , shut down days and the expected
production rate (each of it, machine wise and item wise) of the
approaching period. On the other hand, previous year’s actual
performance helps the zonal office to know about the sales of the product
and in estimating the demand. Also on the basis of previous year’s actual
performance, decisions relation to the addition of the new product in the
existing product line are also taken into consideration (there are some
products whose demand rises in particular seasons)also in all these
decisions, experience and past records also play a vital role.
On the basis of this head office, after taking into account all the factors
fixes an annual sales target for the different zones (quality wise). For
instance, in the coming year, 400 metric tones per month of Royal
executive Bond Parent Size will be produced and will be sold and hence,
will distribute this 400MT under the four zones and in this way fixes
their target.
North Zone: 180 MT
West Zone: 120MT
East Zone: 40MT
South Zone: 60MT
Once the targets have been fixed for the coming year, a Budget is
prepared at the unit and this budget as than divide into different months
and with this a rough monthly budget is prepared.

PRO JECT
Re tail se lli ng

BILT was in to retail selling from the year 2000 after a complete market
study was conducted by the H.O marketing team keeping the retail
selling growth factor in mind due to increase in market demand for the
retail products.
Previously these products were marketed by the wholesalers & dealers
themselves by taking the parent size paper form the mills & then cutting
and pacing the same into the retail usable size i.e. .A4 A3 B4 & B5 etc.
and distributing it through the already existing retail marketing channel
through out India. As paper business a very old kind of business, so the
retail market exists in all the small cities as well as metros, urban &
suburban and also in the most un-organized sectors in India. The Dealer
/wholesaler used to earn a lot of money out of it because it was not done
in a very organized way. The only brand, which was the most popular
amongst all retailers and users, was J.K.’s was the market leader having
the 100% market share along with some of the foreign brands like MODI
XEROX. The first copier brand (used for photo copying) was XEROX, a
foreign company and at a later stage it collaborated with MODI group of
companies and purchased paper from various Indian mills and cut and
packed the same and sold under his brand name. Gradually with the
introduction of J.K ‘s own brand in this segment , a major price game
started and ultimately other players like TNPL,CENTURY,ORINT,APPM
(Andhra pulp and paper mills), SESHASAYEE, GODREJ etc.
According to the market demand of different grades of copier as well as
letter sheets, there have been different varieties of paper available in the
market. Amongst all the varieties available in the available in the market
the brand name that is the most popular one is J.K and BILT. Their
quality has been the most consistent and their prices also match each
other, so the only competition comer from J.K.
Retailing

Retailing consists of the sale of goods or merchandise from a fixed


location, such as a department store or kiosk, or by post, in small or
individual lots for direct consumption by the purchaser. As paper business
a very old kind of business, so the retail market exists in all the small
cities as well as metros, urban & suburban and also in the most un-
organized sectors in India. The Dealer /wholesaler used to earn a lot of
money out of it because it was not done] Retailing may include
subordinated services, such as delivery. Purchasers may be individuals or
businesses. In commerce, a retai le r buys goods or products in large
quantities from manufacturers or importers, either directly or through a
wholesaler, and then sells smaller quantities to the end-user. Retail
establishments are often called shops or stores. Retailers are at the end of
the supply chain. Manufacturing marketers see the process of retailing as
a necessary part of their overall distribution strategy.

In a modern day’s there are number ofShops may be on residential streets,


shopping streets with few or no houses, or in a shopping center or mall,
but are mostly found in the central business district. Shopping streets may
be for pedestrians only. Sometimes a shopping street has a partial or full
roof to protect customers from precipitation. In the Paper Industry,
retailers often provided, boardwalks in front of their stores to protect
customers from the mud. Online retailing, also known as e-commerce is
the latest form of non-shop retailing (cf. mail order).

Shopping generally refers to the act of buying products. Sometimes this is


done to obtain necessities such as food and clothing; sometimes it is done
as a recreational activity. Recreational shopping often involves window
shopping (just looking, not buying) and browsing and does not always
result in a purchase.

R etail pri cing

The pricing technique used by most retailers is cost-plus pricing. This


involves adding a markup amount (or percentage) to the retailers cost.
Another common technique is suggested retail pricing. This simply
involves charging the amount suggested by the manufacturer and usually
printed on the product by the manufacturer.

In Western countries, retail prices are often called psychological prices or


odd pric es .

Often prices are fixed and displayed on signs or labels. Alternatively,


there can be price discrimination for a variety of reasons,for example In a
Paper Industry there are lot of variety they have manufacutured.The
chances of discrimination of price are highly,where the retailer charges
higher prices to some customers and lower prices to others. For example,
a customer may have to pay more if the seller determines that he or she is
willing to. The retailer may conclude this due to the customer's wealth,
carelessness, lack of knowledge, or eagerness to buy. Another example is
the practice of discounting for youths or students. Retailers who are
overstocked, or need to raise cash to renew stocks may resort to "sales",
where prices are "marked down", often by advertised percentages - "50%
off".
Re tail S er vic es

Behind the scenes at retail there is another factor at work. Corporations


and independent store owners alike are always trying to get the edge on
their competitors. One way to do this is to hire a merchandising solutions
company to design custom store displays that will attract more customers
in a certain demographic. The nation's largest retailers spend millions
every year on in-store marketing programs that correspond to season and
promotional changes. As products change, so will a retail landscape.

Ret ail type s

There are three major types of retailing.

The first is the market, a physical location where buyers and sellers
converge. Usually this is done in town squares, sidewalks or designated
streets and may involve the construction of temporary structures (market
stalls).

The second form is shop or store trading. Some shops use counter-service,
where goods are out of reach of buyers, and must be obtained from the
seller. This type of retail is common for small expensive items (e.g.
jewelry) and controlled items like medicine and liquor. Self-service,
where goods may be handled and examined prior to purchase, has
become more common since the 20th century.

A third form of retail is vir tual re tail , where products are ordered via
mail, telephone or online without having been examined physically but
instead in a catalog, on television or on a website. Sometimes this kind of
retailing replicates existing retail types such as online shops or virtual
marketplaces such as Amazon.[3]
There are also 'consignment' shops, which are where a person can place
an item in a store, and if it sells the person gives the shop owner a
percentage of the sale price. The advantage of selling an item this way is
that the established shop gives the item exposure to more potential
buyers.The term re tail er is also applied where a service provider
services the needs of a large number of individuals, such as with
telephone or electric power.

AS we are aware bout that BILT was in to retail selling from the year
2000 after a complete market study was conducted by the H.O marketing
team keeping the retail selling growth factor in mind due to increase in
market demand for the retail products.There are number of

fluctuate twice or thrice in a year.
 BILT holds a major chunk of market share in the paper industry.
 BILT enjoys market leadership in coated paper range due to its
unmatched quality and production.
 Shree Gopal Unit holds sufficient space but still it requires more
land for the implementation plans in respect to future expansion

CONCL US ION

Paper industry is of cyclical nature and the global paper industry is on


come back trail. Indian paper industry has also started looking up. India’s
per capita consumption of paper is around 4.00kg, which is one of the
lowest in the world with the expected increase in literacy rate and
growth of the economy, an increase in the per capita consumption of
paper is expected. The demand for upstream market of paper, medical
grade coated paper, tea bags, and filter paper, light weight online coated
paper, medical grade coated paper, and etc. is growing up. These
developments are expected to give fillip to the industry.
The total capacity of the paper industry is about 1.5 million tones and it is
growing at the rate of 6%. Here again there is a big gap between demand
and supply. Demand is growing at 6% and supply at 3%-4%.

There might be a fall of prices because of fall in global prices. It is more of


a psychological fall than a demand-supply mismatch. The senior officials
are quite sure that demand will soon out ship supply.

BILT always look for good assets to add value to the operations. It has the
best distribution system in the country. The operating performance
speaks for itself. In the sense virtually they are operating every year at
100% capacity utilization and selling the product. If we look at the other
best players in the industry they would never exceed 90% in good years
and in bad years, they go down to as low as 70%

In India the maximum growth in writing and printing has come from
copier paper, the reason being the increase in photocopying. BILT is also
witnessing growth from coated paper. The ratio between coated and
uncoated paper is highly skewed towards uncoated paper is the cheapest.
But with the developed countries. The economy, the consumption of
coated paper is also increasing.

The things have started looking better for the paper industry as a result of
the revival in the Indian economy. Even globally the paper prices have
started moving up. This will reduce the incidence of low cost imports.
The market share of BILT is around 22% and is expected to come up to
30% with in a year or so. The paper market is growing by 6%, and coated
paper market is growing around 10% and copier around 12%
Now the aim is to grow at higher percentage than these and for this BILT
should realize that they have to do it by combination of both field
expansion and looking at the possibility of future acquisition in the paper
industry for this for future consolidation. BILT should look at the
domestic market and there are lots of companies in the block, which we
feel have a synergy with it.

REC OM ME NDA TI ONS & S UG GES TI ONS

The main of the study was to get knowledge about working in the
marketing field in an organization & to analyze the retail sale with help
of data (BILT’s retail products, BILT’s main customers, competitors,
BILT’s position, BILT’s services etc) collected from RDWs. On the basis of
study & findings various recommendations were made which are given
below: -
1. It was found from the study, that retail product IMAGE COPIER
is maximum in sale so company should increase the production of
IMAGE COPIER. It is found from the study that maximum
monthly sale is of 5 tones, which is shown by some the RDWs,
which give maximum sale to BILT, are given incentives, which is
a very good characteristic of BILT for Business. There should also
be increases in supply to these RDWs. Some of the RDWs give
minimum sale. Their performance in the past should be examined
& then accordingly supply of retail products should be increased
or decreased.
2. Major consumers of BILT’s retail products are students. So BILT
should pose more emphasis on satisfying the demands of the
students.
3. it is found from the study that sale increases from march to
September & decreases form oct. to feb. Maximum sale occur in
the months of May & June. Minimum sale occur in dec. so BILT
should plan its production & supply according to demand for the
market.
4. Upgraded technology should be introduced in order to meet
market specifications.
5. Unit marketing should attend more complaints.
6. There should be better coordination between marketing &
process.
7. There should be more flexibility in manufacturing of specific
orders.
8. There had never been proper launching & advertising of specific
products. BILT should start advertising it products, which can
increase its sale & increase its market share from 76%to100%.
After conducting the research, various relevant findings revealed
the true picture of the paper industry. After studying about Unit
Shree Gopal, the conclusions drawn with some recommendations
for improvements:
 BILT have their own USP focusing on quality. The
recommendations relate to continue same strategies along
with diversion in the attributes like pricing, promotion etc.
 Unit Shree Gopal is recommended to consider upon the
transportation facility. The unit is heavily relying upon the
outdoor transporters who play their discretion the
transportation, which may prove hassles in the smooth flow
of goods to the destination. Hence, bring scar to the brand
name of BILT.
 BILT has built up a name of its own. Almost whole of the
country is familiar to the generic term for paper. Thereby,
BILT is recommended to utilize this brand popularity as a
positioning strategy to cater new unexplored markets.
 Unit Shree Gopal, though a reputed, well – known and
active subsidiary of BILT have least concentration on
various active marketing activates. Their main emphasis is
on passive marketing. In these modern times, it is said that
marketing is the backbone of any business. Although the
name is very popular but it is recommended to go in for
improvement of their promotional mix by following
professional approaches like: brand positioning, media
advertising and other sales promotion techniques.
 Unit Shree Gopal is highly recommended to improve the
quality of work life provided to the workers engaged in the
production process. The newly installed machinery is highly
sophisticated but the older machines have poor quality of
work life (in case of pollution, poor lighting, poor
ventilation, cleanliness etc.)
 These must be improved.
