Another interesting point absenteeism is identified only where there is a demand for unskilled work which demands for physical efforts. Here it should be noted that in the developed countries industrial absenteeism is not that severe problem to say. It is because of the mechanization, automation of the operations while in the third world countries like India absenteeism is a serious issue always drags the attention of management.
Absenteeism is the failure of the employee to report for work when they are scheduled to work. A worker is considered as scheduled to work when the employer has work available for him and the worker is aware of it. Absenteeism is undesirable because of its cost and operating problems it causes. Due to absenteeism facilities may be under– utilized and productivity may drop because of reduced out-put. There also may be increased hike in costs for replacements, substandard productions, the need for more help from supervisors and increased inspection costs partial absenteeism in that employees report late to work.
Absenteeism in Indian Industry is not a new phenomenon. High absenteeism prevails among industrial labour mainly due to their rural orientation since then, a number of individual researchers have investigated the problem and have pointed out that absenteeism in our industry varies from 7 to 30 percent.
Hence, the researcher carried out a STUDY on projectskart.com to know the seventy of the issue the industry selected for the STUDY is Kalyani Global Engineering Private Limited, Mysore.
The organization is situated in Mysore city. The company gets technical know how for assembling brakes from Meritor HVS USA, one of the leading industries in auto component industry in the global market. This company belongs to Kalyani Group and head office is situated at Pune. The company has turnover of Rs.120 crores and is targeting to reach Rs.180 crores.
The development of any organization depends on the regularity of employees. The study is conducted to know the various levels and reasons for absence of employees in an organization. By looking it, one can adopt corrective measures to decrease irregularities in the organization, leads to organizational growth.

Important characteristics of Indian workers are that, they are in the habit of abstaining from work compared to workers of other countries. The rate of absenteeism ranges from 4.3% to 44.8%. It also varies with the seasons in the year, the highest being during May, June of every year (48% May 1993).
The main reasons for absenteeism are sickness, accidents or maternity. These factors accounted for about 1.1% to 6.6%. Social and religious causes as high as 1.7% to 14.2%. Other causes like visiting villages for attending litigation, rest, and recreation account for 0.1% to 17.5% of total absenteeism. Absenteeism is directly effects on the progress of the country and as such the company’s are facing a downward trend due to recession and all that are involved in the process are to be looked in to. So I have selected this work at Kalyani Global Engineering Private Limited., Mysore to identify the level of absenteeism and to facilitate the company to move in this direction and find some progressive results.
