Perseverance, inspiration and motivation have always played a key role in success for any venture. At level of understanding, it is very difficult to understand wide spectrum of knowledge without proper guidance and advice.

I wish to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude to all the people who have extended their valuable co-operation in various ways during my project. It is my pleasure to acknowledge the help of all those individuals.

I would like to thank SIES College of Management Studies, to provide me such an opportunity, under the Post Graduate Program of Management.

I would also like to extent my sincere thanks to my internal faculty guide, Prof. C. Radhakrishnan for his kind co-operation and encouragement.
