organization is to know more about the Strategy, Structure and Function of the organization. South India Paper mill is a reputed Paper Mill in India. It has over the years, acquired a strong reputation.
First part, the organization study was an effort towards understanding the organization and its policies and structure of South India Paper mill industry. The methodology adapted for the study was observation and direct interview. Various departments were visited and data was collected about the structure and functioning of each department and
the organization. The overall organization structure was studied along with the functioning of various department such as human resources, administration, marketing, finance and production department.
Second Part contains a study on “Absenteeism of workmen in South India Paper mill”. In South India Paper mill the Absenteeism rate was high so the management decided to give me the research on this regard. So a research was done on absenteeism by interviewing and analyzing the data.

Origin of paper industry

The art of making paper was first discovered in China, 2nd century B.C. from there
it traveled slowly towards Europe. The end of 14th century gave birth to the existence so a number of paper mills in Italy, France and Germany.
The notion of paper being used as a practical everyday item did not occur until the 15th century when “Johan Gutenberg” perfected movable type and printed his famous bible in 1456; he not only spread the word of Christianity, but also sparked a revolution in mass communication. The birth of the modern paper and printing industry is commonly marked from this date.
Paper in India
The Chinese prisoners of war, brought paper to Samarkand after the battle of Atlakh near Talas who first introduced (AD 751) the technique of papermaking from linen, flax or hemp rags based on methods used in China. In India, the first paper industry was developed in Kashmir, established by Sultan Zainul Abedin (Shahi Khan) of Kashmir in 1417-67 AD. In 1837, Dr. Charley established a paper mill at Scampore in West Bengal , unfortunately it was closed in a few years . In 1867, the Royal paper mill was setup in Bally,West Bengal. Soon after Titagpur paper mills was established at Calcutta . The opening of the Deccan paper mills at Pune and the Bengal paper mills at Ramganj in 1887 and in 1889 followed this respectively.

By 1930-1931, the total capacity of paper production in India was increased to 45,600 tons as against 33,000 tons in 1925. The share of indigenous production in national consumption was now 71 % as against 54% in 1925.

Twenty eight mills are forest-based, occupying 37 percent of total production capacity whereas 242 mills, i.e. 32 percent, are based on wastepaper and 130 units, i.e. 31 percent, are based on agro residues. wood In addition to the above, over 1 million tons per year are
produced in the unorganized small sector using wastepaper. The country is almost self sufficient in manufacture of most varieties of paper and paperboards. To meet the part of its raw material needs the industry has to rely on imported wood pulp and waste paper. Production of paper & paperboard during the year is 24.52 lakh tons. At present
about 60.8 percent of the total production is based on non – wood raw material and 39.2 percent based on The operating capacity of the running units isn the range of 90 percent. Most of the mills
in the forest-based sector had utilization beyond 95 percent.
About 140000 tons of paper was exported in 2000-2001 mainly to the neighboring countries.
