In current scenario people have accepted human resource as a very important resource and no doubt Human Resource Development is also considered an output of HRM which is having its significance all over the world. Human Resources are considered as a human capital in the modern times. The plentiful physical resources cannot contribute the growth of the any country without talking about human resources, which converts physical resources into productive resources. Therefore, the difference in the level of economic growth of the countries is mostly a outcome of the differences in quality of their human resources. Those who understand HRD in its true sense are increasingly getting concerned with developing a HRD climate in their organizational setup. They have been using concepts of performance appraisals, job rotation, team development, potential appraisal, training and such other mechanisms.
