CASH MANAGEMENT
 
Objective: To study the Cash management of Bharti Airtel
                                                                                                           
Cash, the most liquid asset and also referred to as the life blood of a business enterprise is of vital importance to the daily operation of business firms. Its efficient management is crucial to the solvency of business because cash is the focal point of the fund flows in a business.
There are two ways of viewing the term ‘cash'. It includes actual cash in the form of notes and coins and bank drafts held by a firm and the deposits withdraw able on demand. It also includes marketable securities which can be easily sold or converted into cash.
 
Need for Cash Management
 
Cash in hand or at bank is the most liquid of all the current assets. Thus larger cash and bank balances indicate high liquidity position of a company. Why do companies hold cash? This is an important question to deal with. Different reason for holding cash are given as
 
Transaction Motive: Airtel has post paid and prepaid connection. If the customers uses post paid connection then sum amount is charged as service charges to the customer by the company but when the bill is given to the customer then there is always a chances that the customer don't pay the bill which some time incurs loss to the company,  entering into transactions with other entities. Transaction means either buying or selling of different products. While some of these transactions may not result in immediate inflow/outflow of cash (example credit purchases and sales), while other transactions cause immediate cash inflow and outflows. Therefore this company always keeps a certain amount as cash to deal with routine transactions where immediate payment is required.
 
Precautionary Motive: Contingencies may crop up when they are least expected to occur. A sudden fire may break out, accidents may happen, creditors may present bills earlier than expected or debtors may make payments later than warranted. For all such surprises Bharati Airtel co is always prepared so as to minimize losses. And therefore this company maintains certain amount in the form of cash.
 
Speculative Motive: companies also maintain cash balances in order to take advantages of opportunities that do not take place in the course of routine business activities. Say suppose there may be sudden decrease the rental charges of postpaid connection which is not expected to last long. These are the transactions which are speculative in nature and for which the company needs cash.
 
 
Objectives of Cash Management
The objective of cash management can be regarded as one of making of short term forecasts of cash position, finding avenues for financing during periods when cash deficits are anticipated and arranging for repayments during periods when cash surpluses are anticipated with a view to minimizing idle cash as far as possible. Some of the objectives of cash management are as follows
 
Cash Forecasting and Budget: it is very important for Bharati Airtel to carry out proper forecasting for future cash requirements which may be because of different costs associated with the business proceedings, The stocks are required to meet the customer requirements as when demanded. Short-term forecasting is prepared under the receipt and payment method, showing the time and magnitude of expected cash payments and receipts.
