Question 1.

Answer:

WEAR WELL CORPORATION LTD.
11, Sansad Marg, New Delhi-110001

December 31, 2011

To,
The Managing Director
Sub.: Declining Sales
Dear Sir,

As desired by you in your letter No ……………………… dated…………………………….. I have investigated the decline in the sales of our company during the last year. I wish to report as under:
1. The sales of our readymade shirts have declined from 60,000 shirts in 2008 to 40,000 in 2009.
2. During the last year there has been a spurt of new brands of readymade shirts in the market. Highly reputed companies like Reliance, Grasim, Bombay Dyeing, Raymonds, etc., have introduced readymade shirts. These companies have made a considerable dent in our sales.
3. Our competitors have a better marketing distribution network and advertising system.
4. These competitors produce shirts with a greater variety of designs and colours.
5. The competition is growing rapidly and one must take immediate remedial steps to prevent further decline in sales.
6. The following steps may be taken to improve our sales :

  • We should introduce new designs in plain, stripes and checks.
  • Our packing also needs improvement keeping in view the modern packing systems.
  • We should undertake a regular advertising campaign on radio and television. At present we have no publicity except an occasional advertisement in the local newspaper.
  • We should increase the number of our dealers, particularly in the suburbs.

I am quite confident that the above measures will enable us to meet the challenge of growing competition and to improve our sales.
Yours faithfully
XYZ
Sales Manager

Question 2.
Write a report on the Investigation carried on in respect of labour unrest in the factory/plant.
Answer:

BEAUTY AIDS LIMITED
C-5, Connaught Place, New Delhi-110 001
REPORT ON LABOUR UNREST AT NAGDA PLANT

To: Mr. S.C. Jain, Managing Director
From: The Labour Unrest Investigation Committee

TERMS OF REFERENCE

To investigate the workers’ unrest and make recommendations to restore peace.

ACTION TAKEN

The committee met the manager of the Nagda Plant twice and detailed discussions were held. Subsequently, two meetings were held with the foremen. Ten workers selected at random were interviewed personally. The President and the Secretary of the labour union in the plant were also consulted.

Finding and Conclusions

  • The unrest is widespread involving all sections of the factory. The unrest was observed in March 2011 for the Erst time. In the beginning, there were occasional outbursts of ill-temper. Later groups of workers discussed the problems. In December 2011 a meeting of the plant union was held and a memorandum was submitted to the plant manager. The plant manager sent a report to the General Manager without enclosing the memorandum of the plant union. Most of the foremen felt that unless immediate remedial action was taken, the situation might get out of hand with the possibility of a total strike.
  • Workers made the following complaints:
    1. The plant canteen does not provide wholesome refreshments and the prices charged are high;
    2. There was no suitable bus service from the railway station to the factory;
    3. The plant manager behaved like a dictator.

Recommendations

  • The canteen contractor should be asked to improve the quality of re¬freshments and reduce the rates.
  • Bus service should be introduced between the factory and the railway station, to be run four times daily to coincide with the two shifts.
  • The plant manager should be advised to be more humane in dealing with workers and union leaders.
