subject = 'Management Automated Email- ' + (item.emp)
html_message = render_to_string('email.html',data)
plain_message = item.emp
recipient_list = []
from_email = <>'
toaddrs = recipient_list 
mail = send_mail(subject, plain_message, from_email, toaddrs, html_message=html_message, fail_silently=False)
mail.attach('papers.pdf', 'pdf/plain')

The function send_mail() returns either 0 or 1, indicating if the message was sent successfully or not, so your mail variable is an int, that's why you got that error. To send an email with an attachment you should first build your message with Django Email Message and then use send_mail.
