Humans are having unlimited potential for growth and development which is measured in an organisation under Performance appraisal System (PAS). PAS is the process of analyzing and recording information about the relative worth of an employee, that is a two way communication process. It involves an active communication between employee and supervisor about performance. PAS can be measured by a system of evaluation but since there is no unanimous system exists the companies are using any one or their own system. Their system of PAS may be older one and sometime unable to measures the performance of the employees. Hence in this paper a company CCI is selected which has given the time and information to analyse their system and an improved system made by the researchers already were also used by taking a census survey of all employees of the company. To test the hypothesis independent sample t test was used with SPSS-19 software. It was found that the company’s current PA system has some hidden difficulties and the new system is able to measure the employees potential in well manner.
