Human resource is one of the most important resource of an organization which runs the organization and is the main reason for the success of an organization. (Syed, 2009).
The use of human resource accounting came in 1960’s and has gained its importance since then as it also emphasize on the social and environmental concerns of the organisation. The organizations are also shifting their focus from product aspect to the service aspect which has rekindled the interest of the organizations towards human resource accounting.
