You can find a lot of information on JUSE regarding Quality Circle. We Hindalco Industries Limited are having participation in QC Circle activities. Recently (21 st January 2005) I led a QC Circle team and secured a THIRD Place in GUJARAT State level. Now this same QC Circle is going for a bigger competition to be held at Regional Level .
