HISTORY OF RELIANCE

The Milwaukee Land Company purchased land from C.C. and Anna Herron for a town site in 1905 and the town was named Herron, but changed to Reliance when it was decided that the name Herron sounded too much like Huron. To the southwest stood a town site named Dirkstown and all of the buildings from there were moved into Reliance once it was learned the railroad would not be going through Dirkstown. Town sites were set up by the railroad company at about 10-mile intervals. Businesses, of the day, were set up immediately, probably the land office being the first. That and the first bank and the newspaper to advertise the land transactions. The lots sold for $200 for corner lots, $150 for inside business lots, $150 for residential corner lots and $100 for inside residential lots. Peter B. Dirks and a Mr. Montgomery, of the Farmers and Merchants State Bank from Dirkstown, purchased the first corner lot. Dirks' Trust and Title Company also opened a hardware and general store. Lafferty and Schoessler also had general stores. The school was built in 1921; high school was discontinued in 1972 and the school was finally closed in 1996. All children now go to Kennebec and Lyman High School in Presho. The community has had three churches: Catholic, Methodist and Lutheran, almost since its beginning. The first residence built in Reliance was the two and one half story home most of us remember as the Andy and Florence (Dirks) Anderson home until 1972. This home has been purchased by Wade and Chyree Hamiel and now sits on their land north of Reliance. In 1910 the west side of Reliance's Main Street was almost completely wiped out by fire. Businesses were rebuilt and along with the railroad came two lumberyards, a creamery, livery, blacksmith, taverns, hotels, restaurants, meat market, two banks, etc. Reliance reached its population peak in the 1920s when it was at 317 and according to the census, continued to decline until it was at 183 in 1945. The construction of Big Bend Dam at Fort Thompson in the 1960s caused the population in Reliance, Chamberlain and Oacoma to increase. RELIANCE

Anil Ambani: Telecom person of the year 2007
His marketing strategy has made millions of Indians happy, they got the best mobile tariffs in the world-local call costs at 15 paise/minute, and STD call at 40 paise/minute NEW DELHI, INDIA: When the VOICE&DATA jury, comprising eminent professionals from the telecom field, met in Delhi in June to choose the Telecom Person of the Year 2007, the five-hour selection process was steamy. The reason was obvious: The telecom sector is rowing faster than any other segment and naturally their CEOs have a lot to crow about. The jury had to select one from three CEOs, who had made it to the final list through nominations from the industry and the initial scrutiny. Among the three, one of the main contenders was a young CEO. The jury decided that he should come back next year to try and win the coveted award. The list now had two names-both CEOs of two well-known companies. The pivotal difference between the two: one is an entrepreneur and the other is not so popular, as his credit is shared among a number of his big daddies.
Following a five-hour closely held, hotly debated discussion, the name was announced: Anil Dhirubhai Ambani, chairman of Reliance Communications. Anil Ambani joined Reliance Industries (currently promoted by his brother Mukesh Ambani, following their split) in 1983 as co-chief executive officer. Forbes ranked him number 104 among the World's Richest People in 2006. The Ambani family faced criticism when it announced its ambitious plans to build a countrywide telecom network, as its prior expertise lay in commodities-textiles and petrochemicalsbusiness only. Apart from that telecom needs a service-oriented mindset, critics felt.

What they did not remember was how the family had served its millions of shareholders. Policies in India are made in line with Ambani's vision, says an industry expert. His business acumen and closeness to politicians assisted him in making it to the Rajya Sabha in June 2004, as an independent member. Ambani chose to resign voluntarily on March 25, 2006.

The same association with politicos gave him negative returns too when the Mayawati Government in Uttar Pradesh put a spanner on his ambitious plans to build a 1,200- acre SEZ. Media sees his aggression when he announces financial results for the Reliance ADA group of companies, and when he attends the annual general meetings and faces questions from shareholders. When he meets the press, he has answers to all their questions. He also remembers to call select journalists by name. To merchant bankers he, who has already contributed immensely to the financial reforms of the country, is one of the financial wizards of the world. May be because of his expertise, he gave up in the race to grab Hutchison Essar stake, after indirectly jacking up the valuation. His negotiations with the Qualcomm chief are also a folk theory now.

How did Ambani become the VOICE&DATA Telecom Person of the Year 2007? What are his personal and organizational achievements in the recent past?

His path-breaking marketing strategy that was put in by the strongest team of telecom professionals the country has ever seen has made millions of Indians happy as they got the best mobile tariffs in the world. The aggression resulted to adding to his already swollen kitty. Every hour India will be adding around 20,000 new mobile customers and Reliance Communications over 4,000. When mobile telephony first began in India, a local call cost Rs 16 per minute; an STD Rs 50; and a call to the US Rs 100 per minute. With Reliance Communication’s pioneering price initiative, a local call now costs a mere 15 paise per minute, STD 40 paise, and a call to the US costs less than Rs 2 per minute. The presence of Reliance Communications is making the competition in India panicky. Global telecom forces will also shortly start feeling the heat. Ambani has also recently announced his Rs 1,200 crore buyout of Holdings.

Achiever's Pride
• Undertook financial restructuring of Reliance communications
• To spend Rs 16,000 crore to expand and strengthen network coverage
• After expansion, Reliance Communications will have the single largest wireless network in the world
• Launched the lowest-cost classic brand handset at Rs 777
• Subscriber base grew to over 28 mn during last fiscal, registering 60% growth
• Total Revenue shot up to Rs 14,468 crore, an increase of 34%
• Net Profit rises to Rs 3,163 crore, an increase of over 600%
• Revenues of the wireless business increased by 46% to Rs 10,728 crore
• Broadband achieved revenue growth of 123% to Rs 1,144 crore
• Market capitalization crossed Rs 100,000 crore
• Will add 23,000 more towers
• Telecom services will be available in over 23,000 towns and 600,000 villages
• Next generation DTH network will be launched before end of the year Reliance Communications' wireless subscriber base grew to over 28 mn last fiscal, registering a 60% growth. This makes it one of the top two wireless operators in India.

"Economic growth in the future will be indexed to connectivity of millions of enterprise and individual customers. Over the next few years, we will have over 100 million customers, making us one of the top 5 telecom players in the world. In four years, we put up a total of 14,000 towers across the country. This year alone we will add 23,000 more towers. Our wireless network is currently available in 10,000 towns. By the end of this year, it will be available in over 23,000 towns and 600,000 villages," Anil Ambani said at the first annual general meeting of Reliance Communications since the re-organization of the Reliance Group in June 2005.

"In four years of operations, we invested around Rs 32,000 crore. This year alone we will invest over Rs 20,000 crore. At the end of this year, we will have covered over 90% of our population. If Version 1.0 of the Indian telecom story was all about affordability,

Version 2.0 will be about reach. Our Network expansion will give us the power to drive the market and stay ahead of the curve," Ambani adds.

According to Ambani, the financial restructuring of Reliance Communications is the biggest turnaround story in the history of corporate India. The inherited ownership structure of Reliance Communications was complex. The reorganization has yielded a simple, fair, and transparent ownership structure, and given Reliance Communications 100% ownership of all operational and associate companies.

Reliance Communications is now among the three most valuable private sector companies in India, and the five most valuable telecom companies in Asia. In the current

Fiscal, Reliance Communications will spend Rs 16,000 crore to further expand and strengthen its network coverage across India and the rest of the world
.
In addition to organic growth, Reliance Communications will leverage the advantages derived from this impressive financial platform to explore and pursue any significant Opportunities available in the telecommunications sector. "We are currently evaluating a number of inorganic opportunities in select international markets to further expand our footprint," Ambani said. Reliance Communication’s One India, One Tariff plan allowed millions to connect across India at just one rupee a minute. The company was the first one to break the Rs 1,000 entry-barrier with the launch of the lowest-cost classic brand handset at Rs 777.

As per its expansion plan, Reliance Communications will have the single largest wireless network in the world, covering over 900 mn Indians or more than 15% of the global population. It will cover 23,000 towns or every single Indian habitation with a population of over 1,000. Reliance Communications will cover almost 100% of all rail routes, providing seamless voice, video, radio, and Internet connectivity to 14 mn commuters every day. It will also cover almost 100% of all national highways, and 84% of all state highways, giving millions of users the power to talk, text, surf, play, chat or simply stay in touch across nearly the entire length of India's 2,00,000-km-long road network.

Having achieved tremendous growth, the main challenge for Reliance Communications is to improve quality of service and ARPU. Its enterprise business is also not in a position to compete with the global majors. Stock market valuations may boost the fortunes of an entrepreneur, but Ambani needs to address the issues faced by the growing mobile customer base, especially in India, where bureaucracy takes pride in checking the businessman.
(2) AN OVERVIEW OF CURRENT MARKET SCENARIO

Reliance Communications (formerly Reliance Communications Ventures) is one of India's largest providers of integrated communications services. The company has more than 20 million customers and serves individual consumers, enterprises, and carriers, providing wireless, wireline, long distance, voice, data, and internet communications services through a number of operating subsidiaries. The company sells communications and digital entertainment products and services through its chain of Reliance Web World retail outlets. The company's Reliance Infocomm subsidiary provides wireless communications services throughout India. Reliance Communications is part of the Reliance - Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group.

The current network expansion undertaken by Reliance is the largest wireless network expansion undertaken by any operator across the world.

It was with this belief in mind that Reliance Communications (formerly Reliance Infocomm) started laying 60,000 route kilometres of a pan-India fibre optic backbone.

This backbone was commissioned on 28 December 2002, the auspicious occasion of Dhirubhai’s 70th birthday, though sadly after his unexpected demise on 6 July 2002.
Reliance Communications has a reliable, high-capacity, integrated (both wireless and wire line) and convergent (voice, data and video) digital network. It is capable of delivering a range of services spanning the entire infocomm (information and communication) value chain, including infrastructure and services — for enterprises as well as individuals, applications, and consulting.

Today, Reliance Communications is revolutionizing the way India communicates and networks, truly bringing about a new way of life.
We will leverage our strengths to execute complex global-scale projects to facilitate leading-edge information and communication services affordable to all individual consumers and businesses in India.
We will offer unparalleled value to create customer delight and enhance business productivity.
We will also generate value for our capabilities beyond Indian borders and enable millions of India's knowledge workers to deliver their services globally.

(1) INTRODUCTION OF THE TOPIC

What is SWOT Analysis?
SWOT analysis is a basic, straightforward model that provides direction and serves as a basis for the development of marketing plans. It accomplishes this by assessing an organizations strengths (what an organization can do) and weaknesses (what an organization cannot do) in addition to opportunities (potential favorable conditions for an organization) and threats (potential unfavorable conditions for an organization). SWOT analysis is an important step in planning and its value is often underestimated despite the simplicity in creation. The role of SWOT analysis is to take the information from the environmental analysis and separate it into internal issues (strengths and weaknesses) and external issues (opportunities and threats). Once this is completed, SWOT analysis determines if the information indicates something that will assist the firm in accomplishing its objectives (a strength or opportunity), SWOT analysis is a general technique which can be applied across diverse functions and activities, but it is particularly appropriate to the early stages of planning for a TIPD visit.

Performing SWOT analysis involves generating and recording the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats relating to a given task. It is customary for the analysis to take account of internal resources and capabilities (strengths and weaknesses) and factors external to the organization (opportunities and threats).
SWOT analysis can provide:
A framework for identifying and analyzing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
This checklist is for those carrying out, or participating in, SWOT analysis. It is a simple, popular technique which can be used in preparing or amending plans, in problem solving and decision making. Illustrative diagram of SWOT analysis If SWOT analysis does not start with defining a desired end state or objective, it runs the risk of being useless. A SWOT analysis may be incorporated into the strategic planning model. An example of a strategic planning technique that incorporates an objective-driven SWOT analysis is SCAN analysis.

Strategic Planning, including SWOT and SCAN analysis, has been the subject of much research.

Strengths: attributes of the organization those are helpful to achieving the objective.

Weaknesses: attributes of the organization those are harmful to achieving the objective.

Opportunities: external conditions those are helpful to achieving the objective.

Threats: external conditions that is harmful to achieving the objective.

SWOT analysis can be used for all sorts of decision-making, and the SWOT template enables proactive thinking, rather than relying on habitual or instinctive reactions.
The SWOT analysis template is normally presented as a grid, comprising four sections, one for each of the SWOT headings: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.

The free SWOT template below includes sample questions, whose answers are inserted into the relevant section of the SWOT grid. The questions are examples, or discussion points, and obviously can be altered depending on the subject of the SWOT analysis.

Note that many of the SWOT questions are also talking points for other headings – use them as you find most helpful, and make up your own to suit the issue being analyzed. It is important to clearly identify the subject of a SWOT analysis, because a SWOT analysis is a perspective of one thing, be it a company, a product, a proposition, and idea, a method, or option, etc.

Here are some examples of what a SWOT analysis can be used to assess:

• a company (its position in the market, commercial viability, etc)
• a method of sales distribution
• a product or brand
• a business idea
• a strategic option, such as entering a new market or launching a new product
• a opportunity to make an acquisition
• a potential partnership
• changing a supplier
• outsourcing a service, activity or resource
• an investment opportunity

(7) FIELD WORK
I. MARKETING VISITING & SURVEY 17/6/2010 to 24/6/2010 II. APPROACH FOR NEW RETAIL COUNTER
(25/6/2010 to 2/7/2010)
I

MARKETING VISITING & SURVEY – 17th June was my first day of summer training in Reliance communication in Bhuj. I met to SWSTIK SIR. He took my interview and selects me for summer training. Then he chose my mentor Mr. Rajeev sir who guides me in summer training. After that I had to do my summer training under in
Vineet Sir First day I went Raj enterprises that have the Distributor ship of Reliance Communication. Then after we met the Three DSR (Distributor Sales Representative).Through the DSR we saw and got the all information about the market and knew that how they work and how increase the goodwill of R. Communication.

They give the regular information about current scheme & plan. We saw that there were more than 200 hundred small & big counters under the Raj enterprises.

AREA OF DSR UNDER RAJ ENTERPRISES
| |NAME AREA |
| | |
| |GHANSHYAM HOSPITAL ROAD,LAL TEKRI |
| |DILIPBHAI BHIDGATE,NEW STATION |
| |SANTOSH JUBLI CIRCLE,POLICE LINE |

Time of visited all retail counters with DSR I learnt all those thing how to explain in front of retailer about the plan & schemes and main thing I learnt there how to convince for accepting a big budget schemes. We familiarized with some kinds of problems those having been retailer, in his working day with customers. After finishing all the counters I went again to the main office for reporting my work to Vineet sir. Along with all work we had to also seen those some counters which did not keep recharge voucher, E-recharge and some types of reliance handset like GSK &CDMA. The main reason through which they can not keep the above given facilities is that they were not telling their problem with us. For removing these problems, there was only one way that they have to tell us their problem with us through which we can remove that problem. Therefore at last I asked the problem and they shared with us their problem. Since I was a junior therefore it was my responsibility to keep all the problems in front of Mr. Vineet sir. It was my marketing visiting for the 7 days which was the great experienced work for me. In this period I learnt some kinds of idea for increasing the sale, also I got familiarized with those problems which generally come in the market for selling purpose.

❖ Bibliography ❖ Questionnaire

Suggestions

On the basis of extensive study and research, here are some recommendation and suggestion which may help the company to market the product and service more profitability and increase its share in the Telecom market.
1. PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES
The company expand the budget allocation for promotional campaign in center Bihar & Jharkhand. It has affected the sale service brand image of Reliance especially in Jharkhand. Low supports in promotion have lead to fluctuation in sale
There may be some useful tools which can be summed as follows:-

(1) Advertising – advertising should have a clear objective and message, which has not been found in recent ads. Reliance is a faster growing provider service in each state .every offers and schemes they should show with proper message for benefit to the customer. In busy life customer do not remembered any offers and which service we can provided for the customer therefore they should by force showing advertisement in growing market and among customer. customers wants continuously exposure in Cable and Local newspapers.

(2) Persuasive Advertising :-
Now there is a need of persuasive advertising for Reliance service which can be moved into the category of “comparative advertising”. It will help the company to establish the superiority of its brand service through specific comparison of one or more attributes and features.

(3)Technical Expertise:-

The advertisement should show the companies expertise, experience and pride in market the product service sale. Media A combination of print ads and TV commercial do a better job.

Local ads and publicity should be giving more stress. Hoardings, banners, wall painting should be promoted, as some expenses are also beard by dealers. Ads on Cable network result greater audience attention. Schemes, gift offers etc. must be highlighted through Radio and Local newspapers.

2. SALES PROMOTION
Cash discount
Premiums
Appointment of sale promoter
Financial schemes

3. OCCASIONAL DISCOUNT

The company may go for occasional discount offers or price off from time to time specially during any festival. Off season discount may also prove helpful to check fluctuating sales.

4. PRODUCT QUALITY AND TECHNICAL FEATURES

As for as some hand set mobile product quality is concerned, there is an urgent need of technical up gradation of Reliance mobile product line. It would be beneficial for company to launch some colors mobile hand set with the some added feature and minimum price.

Most manufacturing organizations spend over 50% of their revenue on supply chain. Considering the fact that customers are more price sensitive than ever, companies have to squeeze out potential profit margins from their supply chain investment. Manufacturers are also becoming increasing dependent on their suppliers; this has led to a general increase in level of collaboration between buyers and supplier. In fact, having the right source of supply can actually be a source of competitive advantage especially when both parties are bonded by an exclusive contract. For example, Dell computer was the first computer manufacturer to recognize the potential benefits of a collaborative supply chain relationship. Dell was so confident that building a...

According to Mary Parker Follett, “Management is the art of getting things done through other people” (Medical and Urwick 1941). Below are various functions of Management 1. Planning: This is a managerial function that determines in advance what should be done. It involves looking for the future. It is the determination of what is to be done, how and where it is to be done, who is to do it and how the results are to be evaluated. 2. Organizing: This involves arranging the way/manner in which organizational structure is established, how authority, responsibilities and duties are given to the managerial team. 3. Directing/Leading: Once the structure has been established and staffing done, the next step in any organization is to move towards achieving the objectives of the organization.

...corporate style to manage these units in order to add value, and potentially more value than other parents could add and prevent these businesses being handicapped by the centre. Essentially, ‘putting one's eggs in different baskets" may reduce the risk in the overall portfolio but requires that the firms management possess the strong capabilities necessary to successfully execute this strategy. This in mind, the Goold and Campbell style that I would adopt is the strategic control style based on…. Because the company has many unrelated businesses, in many industries and in many geographic regions, it is quite unlikely that corporate centre management would be adept at the capabilities required to manage these businesses. Most corporate managers have experience in only one industry (or a few) and none realistically can be an expert in the wide variety of unrelated industries represented in a conglomerate. The business units' management is close to the markets in the different regions, familiar with the different cultures that exists in those markets, and is more likely to have intimate specialist knowledge of their particular businesses. They also need to be flexible and nimble at business-level decision making. As such at the centre we will focus on financial control, which does not require a lot of rich, industry-specific knowledge. Therefore the centre will impose a strict financial discipline of the sort GE's former chairman and CEO, Jack Welch imposed on all......

However, owing to the evolving meaning of CSR and the huge number of scholars who have begun to analyze the issue in recent years fresh efforts are needed to understand new developments. Since there is a great heterogeneity of theories and approaches, the task remains a very hard one, mainly because heterogeneity derives from multi-disciplinary diversity. The criterion for selection is to consider the role that theorists confer to the firm. Following this idea, three groups of theories have been discerned: (1) the utilitarian group, in which the corporation is intended as a maximizing ‘black box’ where problems of externalities and social costs emerge; (2) the managerial category, where problems of responsibility are approached from inside the firm (internal perspective); (3) relational theories, or those in which the type of relations between the firm and the environment are at the center of the analysis.
