Preface Which we are standing on the threshold of 21st century, professionalization is getting on everybody's nerves quickly.

Trying to cope up with this pace, educational institutions rendering professional degree courses are growing out like mushrooms. B.B.A. a three year full time professional degree is very popular among such courses. It is interesting to note that B.B.A. includes practical training as a part of its course. In today's era, such a type of practical training is a must to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and experience. It is a link between classrooms and the outside business world for the B.B.A. students. In accordance with this, I have also visited one of the leading textile companies of Ahmedabad i.e. Arvind Mills Ltd. Included in producing Fabrics i.e Denim, Shirting, Khakis, Knitwear & Garments which includes Shirts & Jeans

The Lalbhais are descendents of Seth Shantidas (c.1590-1659),a famous jeweler, financier and businessman of the sevente enth century. Shantidas is known to have even financed the mighty Moghul empire and was the first to be conferred with the title of Nagarsheth. Khushalchand (1680-1748) grandson of Shantidas had saved the city of Ahmedabad from the marauding Maratha army in 1725 by paying a ransom of Rs. 5 Lakh on behalf of the whole city. The current surname is derived from Lalbhai Dalpatbhai the great great grandson of Himabhai (17851858) son of Khushalchand. Lalbhai was born around the time when the first textile factory in the city went into production. The first manufacturing company of the Lalbhai family Saraspur Manufacturing Company was established in 1897 which was into producing cotton yarn. During the intensifying Swadeshi movement the second company Raipur Millswas established in 1905. Due to untimely death Lalbhai Dalpatbhai the reins of his businesses were handed over to his young sons including a seventeen year old Kasturbhai Lalbhai. Kasturbhai is widely acknowledged to be the father of modern Indian textile industry. Kasturbhai started the first large scale
Arvind Mills Page 5

textile mill under the name of Asoka Mills in 1920 with a capital of Rs.12 Lakh at a time when the largest mills in the region were built with not more than Rs. 5Lakh. After continuously successful period of four decades in the pre-independence era, the group entered into other fields such as dyes, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc. The first diversification started in 1939 with Anil Starch Limited. Atul Products Limited was established in 1952 for manufacturing textile and other dyestuff. In the same campus as Atul existed the joint ventures with CibaGeigy called Cibatul, with American Cynamid calledCyna mid of India and with ICI of UK called Atic Industries and as the time progressed the JV partners separated amicably and these companies exist in India today as full representatives of these global giants. The group took over the then sick company Ahmedabad Laxmi Cotton Mills Co. Ltd. and merged with Arvind Limited and the unit was renamed as Ankur Textiles. The unit currently under Arvind Products Limited is today the country largest organized player in the voiles market. The group also invested in Anup Engineering Limited engaged in fabrication and set up Amol Dicalite in collaboration with General Refractories Limited, U.S.A for manufacturing filter aids and per lite products. Apart from the field of business the Lalbhais over generations have contributed to education, social and
Arvind Mills Page 6

religious causes. Lalbhais contribution to education starting from Gujarat Vernacular Society in late 1800s to formation of Ahmedabad Education Society, Physical Research Laboratory, ATIRA and the famed IIM Ahmedabad are just to name a few. Today Shrenik Lalbhai heads the Sheth Anandji Kalyanji Trust involved in propagating and maintaining Jain temples in western India a post he inherited from Kasturbhai Lalbhai. Mr. Sanjay Lalbhai is genuinely committed to the societal causes and is spearheading these initiatives under the aegis of Sharda trust. One of the important factors which built up the Group was the close relationship of mutual trust between the three brothers Chimanbhai, Kasturbhai and Narottambhai. Despite Kasturbhai having emerged as the patriarch of the group, there was satisfactory distribution of property and managing powers with the members of the family. The management of the companies was distributed between family members who consulted each other under the leader Kasturbhai. Siddharthbhai the eldest son of Kasturbhai managed Atul Products, while his younger son Shrenikbhai looked after the management of Anil Starch. Chimanbhais family branch managed Raipur and Saraspur Mills while Narottambhais younger son, Niranjanbhai devoted his time in technical function of Arvind Limited and his elder son Arvindbhai managed both, Arvind and Asoka Mills. After Kasturbhais death, Arvindbhai son of his brother Narottambhai assumed the leadership of the Group. The process of expansion and the initiative of restructuring of the Group however was led by the third generation of
Arvind Mills Page 7

Lalbhais under Sanjay and Sunil, grandsons of legendary Kasturbhai Lalbhai.The major contribution of Sanjay Lalbhai has been that of overall transformation of the Group culture by induction of highly skilled and qualified professional managers. Today Sanjay Lalbhai is the Chairman of the Group and leads Arvind Limited and Sunil Lalbhai managing the dyes and chemicals business under the Atul Products Limited banner. The current estimated group turnover is over Rs.2500 Crore.

Production Process There are two main processes in production of cloth They are Spinning Weaving Spinning Spinning process includes cleaning of cotton, lap making and making ravings/ silvers. These silvers are then converted in to yarn. Weaving In weaving there are two motions, primary potions and secondary motions. Primary motions include shedding, picking and beating motions are performed in successions, which are in total called as weaving. Secondary motions are let off of warp and taken up of cloth. For every insertion of the pick, the cloth length grown up. The cloth woven is wound on the cloth roller continuously or immediately to keep the fall of the cloth in constant position. This called take up of cloth. The preparatory processes chiefly employed for the warp may be classified into winding, warping, sizing and looming.

Winding: This is the process of connecting the yarn from one packages form to other convenient package form. The object of this process is to convert the packages containing less length yarn in to packages longer length yarn. Normally for the Khaki industry, the yarn is received in the form spinning mills and converted in the form of bobbin / cone / cheese winding machines.

Warping: In the warping process, the individual yarn forms the longer length packages combined and drawn together as a sheet containing certain number of threads of definite length. The individual thread in the warp sheet is called ENO. The sheet of warp is either converted in to ball form or directly wound on to another packages called warp beam as per the next sequence of process.

Sizing: Sizing is the most important process in the preparatory sequence while weaving laves yarn is subject to more stress and strain than weft yarn. Hence yarn used in warp should have more strength than the weft. If folded yarn is used in warp, there is no necessity of sizing because folded yarn has got more strength than the single yarn. When single yarn is used in wrap, it is most to size it to make smoother, round, stronger yarn. For the khaki industry, sizing is carried in the yarn or bank or wraps sheet form.

Looming: The end from the wrap beam is either joined with old wrap by twisting I knotting of old raft is continued or it is passed through the heated and reed of the loom if the new draft is required. The operation is called Drafting and Denting respectively. Then the wrap sheet kept in proper alignment and tension between wrap beam and cloth by the process called Gaiting. Now the wrap is ready in the loom for

Weaving: Weaving when a fabric containing size is received at the gye house the through removal of size is essential to make the fabric easily and completely wet. During scouring and bleaching which are regular features of the processing, the size cannot be removed. The presence of size in the fabric reduces the efficiency of the subsequent purification processes and hinders the dying apart from making the material water impermeable. Hence resizing process in very important with cotton fabrics. As the dying activity is to be undertaken on a very pollution can be assessed only when the dying unit becomes operational. Processing at street weaver level Spinners get readymade silvers. This silver is converted into hanks and hanks are supplied to the society. The yarn hanks are first socked in water for 2 days and stumped to remove the yellowness / impurities from the yarn. This process is repeated for few days. Some of the weavers boil the yarn in water to quicken the process of soaking. Then the yarn is dries and run on the warping machine for definite length and number of threads and sizing is done with

starch outside the worksheet (street warping). The preparatory work is either done by the weaver in the area a job work basis. The whole process takes 7-8 days. The prepared warp is then knotted (jointing). After weaving, the final product is taken to the society
