Co - Curricular Societies


"The Forum for Industrial Relations at XLRI - FIRE@X is the committee for promotion of industrial relations at XLRI. It was foun ded as a discussion forum in 1996 and overtime, took shape into the formal society it is today.

Fire@x is the hub of all IR related activities in XLRI. It aims to inculcate a dialogue amongst the student community about key aspects of Employee Relations/ Industrial Relations. It helps the students foray into the dynamic world of industrial disputes, resoluti ons , bargaining and agreements. FIRE@X organizes acclaimed events throughout the academic year, such as industry interfacing, live projects/case studies, inter college events, e newsletter.

Fire@x is a frontrunner in keeping the Labour Law and IR culture alive at XLRI, something which the institute’s roots are steepe d in and that remains, till date, its distinguishing factor. Some of our events like Trial by Fire and the National IR Summit have been app rec iated across leading B-Schools in India.

All the activities of FIRE@X are designed with a singular purpose in mind: spreading awareness and enthusiasm about the field of Industrial Relations and Labour Law in new, interesting and relatable ways. It is said that 'In theory, there is no difference between t heo ry and practice, but in practice, there is'. FIRE@X aims at bridging this gap by introducing students to the nuances of the Industry."
