    There has so far been little effort to develop a comprehensive sociology of Indian organizations inspite of the growing awareness of the significance of social and cultural aspects of organizations. The author stresses the need for sociology or organizations in the context of the central position occupied by formal organization in society, the growing sociological awareness in relation to organizational analysis and change and the sociologist’s increasing concern about social objectives. A brief survey of existing literature leads to the conclusion that integrative and collaborative aspects of organizations have been overstressed, while the power and conflict dimension has been almost completely overlooked. It is argued that relationships of power and conflict are central to sociological analysis. Some thoughts are expressed on the major questions which should govern the sociology of organizations for a meaningful contribution to understanding organizations structures and processes.
