Research Methodology Adopted
The basic type of research used to prepare this project is descriptive. The study is mainly based on secondary data which are already collected and available. These include internal sources within the company and external sources like books and periodically published annual report of TCIL. Interaction with various employees of the costing department had a major source of information. The study is limited to five financial years i.e. from 2011-2016. The data used in this study has taken from the financial statement and their related schedules of TCIL Jamshedpur. Calculation of various ratios related to working capital (like current, quick, debtor turnover, creditor turnover, cost sheet, and net operating cycle) has done in this report to know the liquidity position of the company and cash conversion cycle. Working capital requirement of TCIL for next three year also projected in this report. Estimation of working capital for the next three year is done through CAGR method and also taken care of external factors (like; expansion plan of TCIL, raw material availability and market study of the steel sector).
