Dear Sharad,
Admin. comes under the purview of HR. In some companies admin. is altogether a different department but is a part of either Finance or HR department only. I have worked in 3-4 companies and everywhere Admin is an active part of HR as all the execution of different jobs comes through Admin Only.

From India, Mumbai

Dear Sharad,
See, actually everything related to Human resources comes under HR, very simple and administration is what? It is just utilization of resources for better work environment, to facilitate the employees for better performance.
