M.A. in HRM & LR
(Human Resource Management and Labour Relations)


Human Resource Management and Labour Relations is the study of people at work and the activities associated with attracting, selecting, retaining, developing, and utilizing people in organizations. It is also the study of how and why rules governing jobs are made and administered. This is more to do with the changes in the external environment, which is now giving even more importance to the HRM field. This course educates future managers and leaders to make the workplace a more humane and productive place, and educate students as scholars and practitioners of management.
Today 'Men' are considered as a strategic portion of our Input. Now HR is not just related to salaries and over-time wages, as earlier, but is now much more major and vital to the success of an organization. Satisfied employees means those who are enjoying their work; if they enjoy the work then they bring better results for the company. That in turn leads to achievement of organizational objectives, which gets profit for the organization. When these profits are passed over to the employees, it provides them work satisfaction and also helps improve the standard of living of the worker. Today the approach of HR is not merely limited to making sure that work is going on but to ensure that the employee improves not just professionally but also personally. Hence, it is the prerogative of HR to analyze their personal objectives, and then help them achieve these along with the organizational objectives.
The M.A. in Human Resource Management and Labour Relations offered by School of Management and Labour Studies is designed to develop students into professionally competent and socially sensitive management graduates, fully equipped to take on the challenges of the corporate world. This course is a challenging teaching-learning experience that blends cutting edge theory with innovative practice to develop business leaders for the global industry.
The TISS HRM & LR postgraduates are most sought after in global industry today. They occupy positions of leadership across a wide spectrum of industries and sectors including IT/ITeS, Banking and Finance, Manufacturing, Retail and Management Consultancy.

As always, TISS was the least transparent exam of the season. No student who took the test knew the weightage of individual questions, forget about the overall paper. According to the prospectus, the written test should have been of 70 marks. But, there were 120 Q’s. How this gets converted to 70 marks is anybody’s guess. For the purpose off our evaluation we have assumed that all questions had equal weightage and the total marks were indeed 70 as the prospectus mentioned. The test-paper said that there would be negative marking for wrong answers, but the extent of negative marking was not revealed! The paper was terribly easy. For a well prepared student, clearing the cut-off score of 43 should be difficult.

  • 120 Qs, 90 min.
  • 70 marks (negative marks for wrong answers)
  • No sections
  • 4 answer options per question
Likely Cut-Off
  • TISS 43+ (as declared by TISS)

Question-Type Wise Analysis of TISS 2007
Quantitative Aptitude
  • All 40 Q’s were easy and even an average student could have attempted 25-30 Q’s.
  • The questions were largely from Arithmetic topics like Number System, Percentages and Ratio-Proportion (around 25 Q’s in all). There were no questions on Speed, though. The remaining questions were related to forming Equations and finding the roots of the Equations (around 5-6 Q’s), Geometry (3-4 Q’s), Probability (2-3 Q’s) and finding the Equation of graphs (2 Q’s).
  • One could have easily attempted around 25 Q’s in 35 minutes and that too at a very high accuracy.
Verbal Ability
  • There were hardly any questions on Verbal ability, and the 15 Q’s that were present were all on Vocabulary and Idioms.
  • The Vocabulary questions were on Synonyms, Antonyms and Analogies.
  • Two new and interesting question types were also introduced. The Analogy questions had a twist! You needed to find the pair that did-not have the same relationship as the reference pair. While the question on Idioms pertained to the situation where a particular idiom was most appropriately used.
  • One should have attempted all 15 Q’s in 10 min.
Logical Reasoning
  • This consisted of 3 sets of Analytical Reasoning (Logical Data Interpretation), each followed by 6-7 Q’s.
  • All the three sets were quiet easy and must-attempts. Only one set (pertaining to Professors, Institutes, Subjects and Degrees) was confusing, but could have been attempted with some effort.
  • Overall, about 15-18 Q’s could have been attempted in 25 min.
Social and Business Awareness
  • This question-type had 45 Q’s in all — largely pertaining to principles of Management and Legislature.
  • A BCom student who had undergone the ‘Management Production and Planning’ (MPP) course could have cracked this section. Also present were some Q’s on recruitment policies and the Company Act. There were some questions on current and social topics (e.g. Khairlanji killings).
  • You could have attempted around 15-18 Q’s in about 20 min. from this area.

IRMA: A Fairy Tale
The rural management institute ploughs a lonely furrow, attracting talent with its promise of challenges rather than money.

[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/testing/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image001.jpg[/IMG]V Kurien, he of the white revolution fame, doesn't remember the year. But it was a long time ago that his cousin Ravi J. Matthai, the Founder-Director of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, invited him to join the institute's governing board. Attending his first meeting of the board, Kurien said the institute was wasting public funds drawn from the Consolidated Fund of India to produce managers for transnationals. Instead, it should be producing managers for agriculture, on which lay the foundation of industry, but about which no one seemed bothered. A cigar-chomping board member, a prominent industrialist of Ahmedabad, responded with biting satire: "You want us to produce graduates to milk cows?" Kurien, unfazed, retorted: "No, but you would perhaps prefer that they suck cigars."
Kurien never attended another meeting of the IIM-a board as he set about building an institute that would be better than IIM-a and serve the purpose that IIM-a would not. That is how Institute of Rural Management, Anand, (IRMA), was born in 1979. And one of the first members on its board was Matthai. Ever since, IRMA has eked out a niche for itself in the management jungle, with its philosophy of building and sustaining a partnership between rural people and committed professional managers.
New [IR] Man On The Block
The story is turning out to be something of a fairy tale as IRMA has bagged the fifth rank in BT's latest survey of B-schools-right after the four IIMs of Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Calcutta, and Lucknow. Of course, the institute has been helped in no small measure by the revised parameters of the survey. Among specialised schools, which produce sectoral MBAs, IRMA is right at the top.
Expectedly, the faces of the first years at IRMA light up when the news is broken to them. Their lips broaden into a 'finally' kind of smile as they talk enthusiastically about why they joined the institute. Director Katar Singh is nothing short of ecstatic. "Ours is the foremost institute of its kind in the world as it applies principles and techniques of management to rural institutes, organisations, and resources," he says. Second-in-command K. Prathap Reddy makes a valiant effort to hide his glee, but to no avail, as he punches holes in the methodology of earlier surveys that, well, did not really talk about IRMA. But the impact is perhaps the most-pronounced on Chairman Kurien's usually inscrutable face. As the somewhat reclusive septuagenarian narrates one story after another over an hour-long interaction with BT in his largely-naturally-lit office, the photographer shooting his pictures says he has never captured so many expressions on Kurien's face.
They can all be forgiven for the reactions. It hasn't been quick and it hasn't been easy. It wasn't long ago that IRMA graduates were looked upon as the children of a lesser God in the upwardly mobile, dark-suited world of MBAs, where placement salaries determine social strata, the cellphone is but an extension of the palm, and management jargon merely everyday conversation. If IRMA has remained largely untouched by the MBA frenzy that followed the engineering-medico-civil services wave, it was simply because its students were never in pursuit of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The Odd [IR] Man Out
The Top100 B-Schools In India
Thirty per cent of IRMA grads join GCMMF or NDDB; 50 per cent join NGOs; about 10-15 per cent join donor agencies; and the remaining 15 per cent opt out of the sector. Today, 40 per cent of IRMA's 1,200 alums are no longer in the sector.
''We must produce managers who don't go away to the US, as IIM graduates do... The managers of MNCs have the only goal of maximising value for a handful of shareholders overseas. A manager of Amul has to look after the interests of 4,00,000 farmers. It's much more difficult.''
A unique feature of IRMA, the field work segment requires students to spend 10 weeks working in a village with one of 600 designated cooperatives and NGOs. Many of those villages don't even have basic amenities like toilets. The faculty closely interacts with the students during a portion of the field work.
But that precisely is IRMA's raison d'etre; and if you are pursuing the pot of gold, you've come to the wrong place. The top salary drawn by IRMA graduates-if they stick to the sector-never exceeds Rs 3 lakh a month-against Rs 10-15 lakh for their brethren in the IIM world. As Reddy points out: "We don't operate in the open market. We just cater to the needs of our clients, who need the best of talent but can't pay too much." What IRMA looks for is people who look for challenges rather than high salaries; people like Matthai, who, along with three of his graduates, lived out of a Telco truck gifted by Ratan Tata to improve the living standards of the natives of Jawaja, a village in Rajasthan where the only occupation was skinning animals. That it took its toll on Matthai's health and may have caused his demise is another story. Says Kurien: "We must produce managers who don't go away to the US, as IIM graduates do-the managers of MNCs have the only goal of maximising value for a handful of shareholders overseas. A manager of Amul (Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation) has to look after the interests of 4,00,000 farmers. It's much more difficult."
It's for this difficult task that the curriculum strives to equip the students for and it's in this context that the field work segment assumes paramount importance. A unique feature of IRMA, the field work segment requires students to spend 10 weeks working in a village with one of 600 designated cooperatives and NGOs. Many of those villages don't even have basic amenities like toilets. The faculty closely interacts with the students during a portion of the field work. In fact, experience-based learning-that includes summer training and management traineeship in addition to the field work-forms 40 per cent of the 88-week programme.
The going hasn't been bad so far. Even in these times of the Gold Rush, about 5,000 applications come for the 60 slots each year. Thirty per cent of the graduates join GCMMF or National Dairy Development Board, 50 per cent join non-government cooperatives and other agencies, and about 10-15 per cent join the donor agencies. Still, even though the entrance tests are designed to spot commitment to the cause and the course aims at developing it further, faculty member Vishwa Ballabh, in charge of placements, reveals that about 15 per cent of those passing out each year opt out of the sector. And 40 per cent of the 1,200-strong alumni are no more working in the sector. Singh, however, says that 60 per cent is a very high retention rate. Paradoxically, these turncoats may have contributed greatly to enhancing IRMA's reputation in the outside world. And Reddy says IRMA grads opting out of the sector attract salaries at par with IIM grads.
[IR] Managing Finances
The Colour of Money
1. NDDB contributed to the corpus of IRMA in two tranches: Rs 9 crore and Rs 8 crore
2. This corpus has now grown to Rs 33 crore
3. Interest earned on the corpus, owing to falling interest rates, is stagnating around Rs 4 crore a year
4. IRMA earns about Rs 2.5 crore a year through consultancy and various projects
5. Expenditure, meanwhile, has caught up with earnings
The sharp sectoral focus also makes finances an issue for IRMA. It started with a corpus donated in two tranches by NDDB: Rs 9 crore and Rs 8 crore. That corpus has grown to Rs 33 crore. The institute's major income is interest earned on this corpus, that comes to about Rs 4 crore a year. In addition, it earns about Rs 2.5 crore a year through consultancy and various projects. Lately, expenditure has caught up with earnings as interest income has stagnated in the falling rate regime. It's difficult to take on more revenue-generating work as it entails diverting the faculty's time away from the institute's programmes.
So, why not expand the faculty? As Singh points out: "We don't want too large a faculty (at present, IRMA has 25 permanent members in addition to five visiting ones) as it's difficult to manage. Besides, it's not easy to find so many committed people." But he readily admits that there is a dire need to boost earnings, especially as there is a subsidy component of Rs 1-1.5 lakh on each student over two years. One way could be to get consultancy work from entities like UNICEF that pay well. Otherwise, a grant or two could come in handy.
Surely, these are issues that need to be addressed. But Kurien remains unfazed. When he first came to the Anand area in 1949, no one would take him on as a tenant since he was a Christian, a meat-eater and, worst of all, a bachelor. He therefore lived in a garage for a long time. "Everything here was built brick-by-brick," he says. And addressing these issues merely means a few more bricks.

The Indian Agriculture Industry is on the brink of a revolution!!
Take a look at the following statistics:
l Turnover of the total food market: approximately US $ 69.4 bn
l Turnover of value-added food products: US $ 22.2 bn
l The Government of India has approved proposals for joint ventures, foreign collaborations, industrial licenses and 100% export-oriented units envisaging an investment of US $ 4.80 bn
l Foreign investment is over US $ 18.2 bn
l Agriculture accounts for over 35% of GDP and employs 65 % of the population
Recently, during Amaethon 2008, an IIM-A initiative in the field of agribusiness, speakers stressed the sustainability and all-inclusive growth of agribusiness in India. They said that a multi-cultured and socio-economically diverse country such as India can never ignore the bottom of its pyramid. They also emphasized that growth in agribusiness is declining not because investment is decreasing, but because new talent is not getting infused into the sector.
The career opportunities available to students in this domain are tremendous. For the year 2007, PGP-ABM at IIM-A recorded unparalleled placements with an offer-to-student ratio of 2:1. Average salaries in the sector increased by 25% for freshers and 20% for laterals. Greater job diversity was the distinguishing feature of placements.
l The PGP-ABM students of 2007 bagged consulting and advisory roles in banks, positions in FMCG giants like Pepsi and Marico, and placements with some of the big names in Food, Supply Chain, Procurement, Agricultural Finance, Retail, and Commodity Trading.
l The highest salary offered was INR 10 lakh for laterals as well as for freshers.
l The average salary rose to INR 9 lakh for freshers and 9.5 lakh for laterals.
Kamal Deo Singh, Coordinator, IIM-A Placement Committee (PGP-ABM) said that this is just the beginning of a trend. Demand for agribusiness managers is set to grow rapidly.
So, as you can see, this is a very lucrative career option for any MBA aspirant, irrespective of his or her educational background, and not just for agriculture graduates. Besides, enrolling in this course will give you the opportunity to become a part of one of India's heritage institutions. If you have not yet considered this programme as an option, please do so. You would not want to miss out on a fantastic career opportunity. All you have to do to take advantage of this wonderful career prospect is to darken a circle…yes, that is it!
In your CAT application form, do remember to darken the circle corresponding to the PGP-ABM programmes available at IIM-A and IIM-L. You do not need to fill a separate form or pay any extra fee.
If you are excited about a career in Agribusiness Management, you could also look at other institutes such as IRMA and IIFM.

Postgraduate Diploma in Rural Management (PGDM-RM)

Traditionally, industry has been the main focus of management science. Xavier Institute of Management made an innovative departure by emphasizing the need to expand the use of management science to rural sector in the form of creating managers not only for corporate sector but also for the social sector. The basic objective of introducing the two years PGPRM course is to inject professionalism in the field of rural economy. It is now well recognized that professionalism and professional interventions are going to have key place in shaping the future of rural India. The present initiative of PGPRM in XIMB is an exception to the traditional treatment of the management education. This has not only created a special place for the Institute among the galaxy of management Institutes in India, and abroad, but also has fulfilled one of the basic needs of the Indian economy.
Objectives

XIMB's Rural Management programme aims at training professional managers for the rural sector. The course is designed to address the following objectives:
  • Blending the managerial knowledge and practices of people with modern management science end techniques.
  • Building and strengthening people's organisations.
  • Knowledge and skill needed for effective utilisation and management of human and valuable resources.
  • Application of technology to analyse factors influencing rural realities.
  • Generating an interface between the corporate sector and social development
Today under the new economic reform regime, the corporate houses are also required to initiate special programmes aimed at social development. The symbiotic relationship between business and society has triggered off a growing involvement in the social sector. There is, therefore, a crying need to bridge the corporate sector and rural society. This would not only help in setting up a process for contributing to the needs of the informal sectors objective but also provide a platform for the corporate sector to strengthen business opportunities. As a result, more and more corporate bodies are looking for a special team of rural managers who understand the complex dynamics and behaviour of rural society. This is one of the market segments, which the programme intends to cater to apart from the social development sector comprising of co-operatives, NGOs, government development agencies, and national and international donors engaged in promoting rural development.

Areas Tested in Exam
IRMA
2 hours

NA
40,50,50,60
English Comprehension, Quantitative Ability, Analytical Reasoning, Issues of Social Concern

2. You have to plan to do to things take score in Gk part and math-reasoning-English part.

3. You have to clear cut-of in each section including GK.

4. For to gear up speed in each section you should start to solve Bank P.O.’s paper set. Because it is the test which have same paper style as IRMA.

5. And to score in GK there is one book name is “INDIA 2007” year book (year is changing every year).from this book you should read chapters related to agriculture, rural, etc.
Because GK of IRMA is mostly related to this all field.

6. IRMA takes its question paper back. So to get these papers there is one way is magazine “BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT”.
This magazine publishes paper of IRMA, XAT, SNAP, IIFT, MAT etc.
Of previous years. Exact one.
To get more than one paper for IRMA you have to subscribe more than magazine of “BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT”. And actually I don’t know the months in which Irma’s papers publish otherwise I don’t need to spend too much.

7. One more magazine is also available in which GK is given name of it is “yojana and kurushetra”.

8. One more thing is that to clear cut-off you should attempt 30-30-30-30 = 120 questions it means if you score between 80-90 or 90-100 you will get call for GD-PI .so that’s why I suggest gearing up speed.

9. Mail of one student who is studying in rural management course of XIMB.
“Hello friend. Let me introduce first. I am aviranjan studying rural management from ximb.

abt g.k. connect people from c l, ims and time and collect g.k. test papers that they will issue say 1 or 2 weeks before irma. Extremely helpful.
Apart from that read last six months yojana and kurushetra throughly. It’s enough for g.k.want to do more. Find any link for current affairs.and con”

Objective Test: Data Interpretation Test, Data
S ufficiency Test, Probability Test, Reading
Comprehension relating to business and
HR issues, Business Knowledge, Foundation of
Management (Economics, Sociological and
Psychological).

The section of General Awareness in IRMA primarily focuses on social sector. Past years
trend highlights some specific areas such as
�� Data/Pattern of Agriculture sector
(The Hindu Survey on Indian Agriculture 2008 should prove very useful)
�� The various NGOs and Social movements: their leaders, area of activity etc.
�� Social problems of India
�� Human development indicators, data etc.
�� WTO, its implication for rural sectors
�� Mishaps like accident due to fire, contaminated water, liquor etc.
�� The Govt. schemes for social sector viz poverty alleviation, literacy, employment,
healthcare etc.
(Read through the social sector section in Economic Survey and Budget 2005-06)
To cover these topics browse Govt. of India Websites/Publications. The Public Information
Bureau of Govt. publishes India 2008, which will prove a helpful reading. Website of the
Planning Commissions and documents too have comprehensive analysis of social sectors.
Magazine ‘YOJNA’ too would have useful and relevant material for this exam.
We have provided some of the questions that have been asked in IRMA over the past few
years. These questions have been based on the students’ memory. Also to help you judge
your competency in General Knowledge, a set of practice questions with answers has
been provided towards the end.

The economic boom that is being experienced in India is largely attributed to the globalization and liberalization of the Indian economy. The era prior to the 1990s was quite averse to the concept of an open market policy and the Indian markets were predominantly closed in nature.

The government of India, however, ruled and regulated Indian markets but with the globalization and liberalization of the Indian economy, the whole market scenario changed in no time. The economic policy drafted in early 1990s by the government of India facilitated huge inflow of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Foreign Institutional Investors (FII) in to the much insulated Indian markets. Prime economic factors like Industrial Growth, Balance-of-Payments, Merchandise Exports, Invisible Accounts and Foreign-Exchange-Reserves witnessed positive growth and effected tremendous growth of Indian Economy.

Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) - net investments in equities crossed US$ 7 billion in calendar 2006. FII net investment till 6 November 2006 has been US$ 7.08 billion, according to the Securities and Exchange Board of India. 151 new FIIs have opened their offices in India during first 10 months of 2006. The total number of FIIs in India stands at 974 as on November, 2006 Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) - India envisage of attracting $10 billion of foreign direct investment (FDI) this year as inflows have nearly doubled to US$ 4.4 billion in April-September 2006. In September 2006, FDI inflows grew 225% to US$ 916 million as compared to US$ 282 million in the same month last year. Services attracted maximum investment of US$ 1.5 billion recording growth of 350%. Telecommunication sector with inflows of US$ 405 million has registered the maximum growth of 950%. Corporate India has recorded its highest rise in salaries at 22% in the first half of 2006-07 against increase of 17% in 2005-06
