The Forum for Industrial Relations at XLRI – FIRE@X is the committee for promotion of industrial relations at XLRI. It was founded as a discussion forum in 1996, which served as a platform for the dissemination of ideas and learning in the field of industrial relations, thus advancing and satisfying the needs of students. Overtime, it took shape and has organized itself into the formal society that it is today.

FIRE@X is the hub of all IR related activities in XLRI campus. It serves as a platform for sharing ideas and discussing key aspects of Employee Relations/ Industrial Relations. It helps the students foray into the dynamic world of industrial disputes, resolutions, collective bargaining and agreements. FIRE@X organizes acclaimed events throughout the academic year, such as industry interface, live projects/case studies, intra college events, e-newsletter. All the activities of FIRE@X are designed with the same purpose in mind: spreading awareness and enthusiasm about the field of Industrial Relations and Labour Law in new and interesting ways.

Our mission is “To bring about a greater level of interaction between students, faculty and the industry and to create awareness and passion about the field of Industrial Relations and Labour Law”
