  • 12. 12 COMPANY PROFILE
  • 13. 13 COMPANY PROFILE Shri Mahila Griha Udyog Lijjat Papad (Recognised by Khadi & Village Industries Commission) It is a women's organisation of the women, by the women and for the women. It was started in 1959 with 7 lady members with a borrowed sum of Rs. 80/- at Girgaum in Mumbai. The turning point of our Institution was in 1966 when it was registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950 and also registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860 and got recognition from Khadi & Village Industries Commission as a village industry. The objective of the Institution is to provide employment to the ladies to enable them to earn decent and dignified livelihood. Any women who can render physical work in this Institution without distinction of caste, creed and colour and agrees to abide by the objective of the Institution can become a member of the Institution from the date on which she starts working. Papad production work starts at early hours in the morning i.e. 4.30 a.m. Lijjat have mini bus which picks the members from the closest point of residence to the branch and back home. Every branch is headed by a Sanchalika to see the production of the branch. They have a Central Managing Committee, which consist of 21 members out of, which we have 6 (Six) elected Office Bearers i.e. President, Vice - President, 2 (Two) Secretaries and 2 (Two) Treasurers. All the branches are autonomous units for the purpose of profitability and the profit or loss as the case may be of such unit is borne by the owner sister members of that branch by increasing or decreasing their rolling charges accordingly. The credit for rapid progress goes to the constant vigilance on the part of sister members maintaining the quality of Lijjat Papad with their hard work.
  • 14. 14 Besides Lijjat Papad the Institution has other products like Khakhra, Masala, Wadi, Detergent Powder & Cakes, Bakery Products & Chapaties.

Exports are made through Merchant Exporters to countries like UK, USA, Middle East Countries, Thailand, Singapore, Hongkong, Holland, Australia and other Countries. The Institution has received an award from Khadi & Village Industries Commission as a "Best Village Industry" for the period 1998-1999 to 2000-2001. On 6th September 2003 our Institution has received the Economic Times Award of "Businesswomen of the Year 2001-02 for Corporate Excellence". In January 2003 they received the award for 'Best Village Industries' at the hands of Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee at New Delhi. Lijjat was featured in various T.V. Channels, which include BBC World in the programme "Business Bizarre". The Institution, over the years, has paved the way for women to become self-reliant and self-confident. Lijjat has provided them the right platform to improve their status in society ORGANISATION - Core Value Shri Mahila Griha Udyog Lijjat Papad is synthesis of three different concepts, namely (1) The concept of Business (2) The concept of family (3) The concept of Devotion All these concept are completely and uniformly followed in this institution. As a result of this synthesis, a peculiar Lijjat way of thinking has developed therein.
  • 15. 15 The institution has adopted the concept of business from the very beginning. All its dealings are carried out on a sound and pragmatic footing - Production of quality goods and at reasonable prices. It has never and nor will it in the future, accept any charity, donation, gift or grant from any quarter. On the contrary, the member sisters donate collectively for good causes from time to time according to their capacity. Besides the concept of business, the institution along with all it's member sisters have adopted the concept of mutual family affection, concern and trust. All affairs of the institution are dealt in a manner similar to that of a family carrying out its own daily household chores. But the most important concept adopted by the institution is the concept of devotion. For the member sisters, employees and well wishers, the institution is never merely a place to earn one's livelihood - It is a place of worship to devote one's energy not for his or her own benefits but for the benefit of all. In this institution work is worship. The institution is open for everybody who has faith in its basis concepts MILE STONES OF THE INSTITUTION The Institution has received many Awards over the years but the few to remember. 1.

  • 21. 21 MANUFACTURING PROCESS The manufacturing process in Lijjat is a continuous process. Daily chores start in early morning around 4:30 am or even earlier depending upon the work load. In the 1st stage flour is kneaded into the dough & is pounded in big chunks. The chunks of pounded dough are sent for distribution among the rolling sisters. In the 2nd stage the papad rolling sisters srrive from their home to production centers to take the pounded dough. They can take as much as may be desired by them. They go back to their home & roll out the papad. The rolled papad are dried in clean, airy, open space, mainly in the bright sunlight. The dried papad are usually delivered back to the production center next day when the sisters come to take fresh dough. The sisters receive their rolling charges as soon as they deliver papad. In the 3rd stage papad received from sisters are checked for their quality & packed. The papad packets are then sent for marketing. The entire process is very simple & carried out manually without using any complicated machine. The sisters have standardized the entire process. For the 1st stage properly cleaned empty cans or tins are kept ready & in each tin 11 kg flour is poured. Fixed quantity of masala i.e herbs & powdered spices are then added in the flour. Large tubes of water containing necessary proportion of salt & soda-bi-carb are also prepared & kept ready. In order to save time & expedite the work, this part of the process is usually carried out on the previous day so that the flour kneading work can immediately startin the early morning. When desired quantity of water & masala are added in each batch of 11 kg dry flour & the flour is kneaded in dough, the weight of the dough go up to 17 kg. it is very easy to find out the whether the dough is properly kneaded & pounded. It does not require much skill. 1 kg of pounded dough should yield 820 gm of dried papad as nearly 120 gm can get evaporated during the process of rolling & drying of papad. However they have fixed lower norm of 810 gm of as standard yield & in addition to that a further loss of 10 gm is considered as acceptable loss. This is how the papad rolling sister who take 1 kg of dough must have to deliver back at least 800 gm of dried papad.
