First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank the College for having projects as a part of the COP curriculum. I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to the following individuals who have played a crucial role in the research for this project. Without their active cooperation the preparation of this project could not have been completed within the specified time limit. The first person I would like to acknowledge is the head of COP department Professor Ashish Mitra, of St. Xavier’s College Kolkata, and the second person I would like to thank is Mr D.N. Chakravarthy who supported me throughout this project with utmost co-operation and patience. I am very much thankful to you sir, for sparing your precious and valuable time for me and for helping me in doing this project. I am thankful to Mr. Ram Prasad Agarwal, Director of Fairdeal Supplies Ltd. who helped me in all ways possible. He ensured that I was provided with all the necessary information. I am also thankful to Mr. R. Sheshadri, Chief Engineer of Coal India Ltd, who graciously took time from his busy schedule to help me out in all possible way.
