Business Bureau,

The theme ‘Approach to Improve Productivity and Profitability’ and the sub themes of the conference were researched meticulously threadbare by NIPM team to understand the painful areas to improve productivity and profitability of the organisations in Central region of Maharashtra.

NIPM met around 100 senior professionals in the capacity of plant head, head operations, HR heads, CMDs to understand areas which hamper and jeopardize growth and development.
The expectations of these senior management personnel were very high and they wanted these challenges to be taken up by NIPM, Nagpur, said Pradip Raut, Chairman of NIPM, Nagpur Chapter while talking to The Hitavada at the sidelines of NIPM Nagpur Chapter-Central Regional Conference 2018 on Saturday.

Raut said, “To scientifically indicate our team went around SEZ, MIHAN, 5-star Industrial Estate like Butibori, Hingna MIDC, Kalmeshwar MIDC. We were disturbed to see the vacant industrial grassy plots with no one in sight; with grazing cows and buffaloes and frightening peace with no activities in sight. This kind of peace is disturbing and alarming. Entrepreneurs and industrialists want industrial growth with peace and prosperity in this region.”

Raut wondered why industries are getting sick, why large scale sectors are shying away from this Central region in spite of modern initiatives such as rail, road and air connectivity, strategic planning of Samrudhhi Marg between two capitals i.e., Mumbai and Nagpur there seems no tangible, concrete and sizeable industrial investments. “Industrial relations (IRs) are hurdle since long time. Relations was at its lowest ebb and industrial was a distant dream,” Raut pointed out. There are certain issues such as shortage of skilled manpower, stringent enforcement of local body act like Gram Panchayat Act, implementation of State Act such as Bombay Industrial Relations Act i.e. BIR Act, Mathadi Act, Maharashtra Recognition of Trade Union and Unfair Labour Practices Act, emerging issues of contract labour etc. “We decided to bring up the subject of industrial relations which has a direct impact on industrial productivity and profitability, especially in view of turbulent industrial climate hitting this region.
