A congenial HRD climate is extremely important for the successful working and ultimate achievement of the business goals. In the Indian context, type of organization influences the culture prevalent in the organization. In recent times, Indian Telecom sector is one of the fastest growing sectors across the globe particularly by its unparalleled growth in mobile telephony. Since climate is an outcome of culture, this study attempts to assess the climate that prevails in the public and the private sectors of Indian telecom industry and to compare their results. A case study of BSNL and Reliance Communication has been undertaken with a total sample size of 200 employees, out of which 100 belongs to BSNL and 100 belongs to Reliance respectively. A 38-item HRD climate survey questionnaire grouped into three categories: General climate; OCTAPAC culture; and HRD mechanisms, has been administered and t-test has been applied to test the significance of HRD climate existence. The findings indicate significant difference in the HRD Climate prevailing in both the sectors.
