Dear Susheel,
Congratulations for your new assignment, I know its very tough to setup any department and Hr department has a vast role and responsibility, but at the same time it is not impossible take it as a challenge.I faced the same problem when i joined my first HR Job but, time passes and now everything is in my control .
First you prepare your organization Organogram. Than you collect employees information from different departments. Once you collect employees information regarding there work , than you can make JD for employees than it is easy to make Employee Handbook. Do step by step exercise.

HR

Indeed, It is a very challenging job that you have got. First of all, prepare the files of employees, includes, their date of joining, contractual and permanent employees, terms and conditions they are hired on, joining dates, their work and career history, if they are not available develop a details form to get the details, employee numbers, they keep the company card etc. Know your employees first, try to fill the basic area first, also the attendance management system is very important.
The basic and major areas would be:
The work stations,
Job Description
Person Specifications
Hierarchy of the company
Designations
Hiring Firing
Performance Appraisals
Leave management
Employee record keeping
Let them know the importance of having an HR dept in the company by taking relevant responsibilities.

Also Work on developing an HR manual that includes selection and recruitment process Probation, Inductions etc
