Thank you Tayal for attaching the project, which I could access. Here are some critical comments about the expectations of institutions rather than your project report.

It is amazing to see how poor the methodology section is. I could hardly find any justification of methodology used by supporting the decision with previous studies and/or expert opinion. The target population is also not clearly stated. How did you conduct the survey and where did the 100 come from? How many did you aproach and how many were willing to respond?

The recommendations are too general and does not consider the cost of implementing the suggestions.

The bibliography, especially those relating to material gathered from websites is very poor. The details of some of the books referred do not include the date of publication.

There is hardly any citation of references used in the text of the report.

Finallly, I wonder of what use was all the demographic data collected!! I think, you missed out an opportunity of conducting a good study by not using SERVQUAL instrument for your study.

Have a nice day.

I would suggest that you do not include the whole report but edit the data alaysis part to include only some responses and delete the rest, to stop others submitting your report to their colleges.


PS: A kind request to other students. Please do not copy and submit this report as your own. I have seen this done in the past.

Dear Manju,
Thanks for your advice, i was also trying to collect data from primary source, but the barrier which is coming in front is the cost involved for the same, how can i get references in jet and air india for training permission, do u know someone who had done training from these companies.

Dear Meenu,
You need to approach the companies; I am afraid you will not find the companies' policies from secondary sources. I am sorry to disappoint you in stating that it may be better to cut losses at this stage rather than pursuing with the research to find that your thesis is not up to PhD standard. I am stating this as an external examiner of a PhD thesis from the University of Mysore.
Wish you all the best.

  • Your topic is specific to Air India and Jet Airways and again very specific about HRM Policies of these two companies, that too for PhD.
  • You have to be very serious about the study you are doing and also about authenticity of data and information you are collecting. Only way to ensure that is to directly approach management of these two companies.
  • There is a possibility that these companies may not part with the information you may need. But you should have thought about all these possibilities before deciding the topic of PhD
