BIS #1930 AN INDUSTRIAL VISIT TO MAHINDRA & MAHINDRA
DIVYADAAN, JULY 19, 2010: On July 16, 2010, the third year students of philosophy from Divyadaan - Salesian Institute of Philosophy - Nashik, made a visit to the production plant of the Mahindra and Mahindra Company at Satpur, Nashik. This visit was part of their course that they were doing on industrial sociology. The visit was well guided and planned by Miss Asha Sabarwal of the Employee care and Administration section, Automotive Sector, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.
The tour began with a power point informative presentation on the company’s history, its development across the globe, the car models in vogue and the achievements of the company till date. The students were then led to different workshops where the Mahindra models of Logan, Xylo and Scorpio were being manufactured. Each of the three workshops was huge with the latest hi-tech equipments and there were even imported Japanese robots that processed the body of the vehicles. The machines were also handled efficiently by competent employees. This blending of human being and machine power gave a finesse to the automobiles that was astonishing. The engineering supervisors at different workshops gave lucid explanations on the complex process of the birth of a vehicle, and the actual assembling of a car which the students witnessed with their own eyes complemented this information. The accommodation and functioning of heavy machinery was exceptional and reflected the mind of a genius organization.
The relationship between the company and workers was made known by the various schemes offered for the benefit of the employees. The products of Mahindra that have spiraled upward are an outcome of this professional relationship.
The students dived into the discipline of the industry and made an enriching experience of it. A keen interest was seen by the fact that the students posed queries, clarified many a doubt and gathered a lot of good information. This academic visit was certainly made possible by our lecturer and our principal who gave the students an impetus to enter into the world of industries, become aware of the technology involved and broadly analyse its role in moulding society.
