Industrial visit to Richa Global Exports Ltd On the 5th of December 2022.

The first Batch of 30 students from 2nd BBA LLB of SJCL left for an industrial visit organised by their HRM teacher, Mrs Lincy Joykutty.

On arrival at the Jigani branch of Richa Global Exports in Bangalore, we were escorted into a waiting room where we were introduced to the HR manager, Mr Alex Mathew. Mr Alex escorted the students in batches of 5 throughout the campus, showing us the various machinery and methods adopted in producing the clothes that the company exports. While being shown around, the students posed numerous questions to Mr Alex, who happily and patiently answered them. The Jigani branch of Richa Global Exports spans over 98,000 sqft and has a built-up area of 45,000 sqft. Their major clientele includes Superdry and Ann Taylor. The factory has a workforce of around 1500 individuals, of which 75% are women. The company provides training to the newly joined workforce which is usually lasts around 30-45 days.

Various safety equipment is provided to the workers such as special gloves for the stitching section and eyeglasses for protection. The company has a very vigilant screening process for its finished goods. Since the company exports to the United States of America, it has a CTPAT room to meet the guidelines set by the US for exporters.

Richa Global Export also has a wastewater treatment plant on site. Here, the wastewater goes through 3 stages of treatment, namely- RO, Chemical and the Bio stage after which clean filtered water is collected. The clean water is purified to an extent that it is drinkable. The company also has a tie-up with government authorities to collect and dispose the waste that is generated during the production process.

The opportunity to visit an organisation as big as Richa Global Exports and be given the permision to see the various machinery and processes used to carry out production is truly a rare opportunity for students. We, the students have gained a significant amount of insight from the industrial visit which will serve us well in the future.
