Author: Vasanthi Reena Williams, Mohammed Irfan, Mubin Taj,(Pages: 290-299)

Abstract:

AzimPremji, the famed industrialist and founder of Wipro Ltd had once stated that ?the challenge before an educational institution does not lie in its supply of talent but rather that of employability?. Business experts consider India as one of the most promising destinations for business and also a country having a young and enterprising workforce. On the one hand, the education commission, universities and the government are seriously and earnestly trying to ensure better education for students, with a right mixture of practical and theoretical aspects being included in the program of study. However, on the other hand, a structured questionnaire survey focusing on fresh graduates who have secured impressible scores and seeking jobs discloses that they do not find themselves employable due to lack of necessary practical skill set, required by corporate houses, worldwide. This leads to a dilemma and predicament as to what could be the reason for unemployability amongst the youth. This study which has been funded by the UGC, under Minor Project attempts to address this gap and find a solution to tackle this issue. However, this study is only a part of the main study and tries to address the opinion and views of students at the Higher Education level towards their curriculum.

Sales forecasting is one of the most crucial inputs to a firm?s decision making process. The achievement of the organizational goal depends upon the selected sales forecasting techniques that will give the necessary information to pursue these goals. Since the sales forecast is crucial to a firm?s success it is important that the right technique is selected to generate forecasts. Because of the importance of technique selection the overall purpose of this study is to propose and demonstrate a methodology for improving the sales forecasting technique selection process by using a tool of zero-one integer goal programming. Methodology: The methodology of zero-one integer goal programming is used to suggest which sales forecasting technique should be used for given sales forecasting situation. The possible way of setting up the goal program is to use the evaluation criteria as goals to achieve. In order to test the significance of goal programming approach a comparison is made between the protocol results and predicted results by using the percentage estimates of rank order of techniques. Practical Implications: The use of goal programming formulation provides a formal, logical way of thinking about decision making process. This should increase the understanding of this problem area and increase the quality of decisions. Since goal programming is an optimization technique it gives a more normative approach to decision-making and emphasizes such activities as sensitivity analysis and measurement.

Author: Yogendra Kumar,(Pages: 319-325)

Abstract:

The grant of patent follows with certain aftermath like the exclusive authority of the inventor leading to a high price of the invention and where the invention is something meant for the public at large it still remains out of reach. Thus, with changing times and advancement in technology concept of compulsory license is evolved. Compulsory licensing has been likened to the existence of a willing buyer against an unwilling seller by forcing a patentee to license the invention, a country can ensure that the patent does not exist on its books just to manipulate or otherwise restrict the development and marketing of the invention by one of the country?s own citizens. Compulsory licensing is a fundamental tool that developing countries may use in certain conditions to ensure that poor people have access to necessary medicines and such other necessity. This measure shall produce positive social effects and promotes social well ? being to the extent that it obviates the drawbacks of a patent system and creating an efficient tool for access to the necessary inventions e.g. drugs, medicines etc. In this paper we have explained the impact of the judgment in Natco v/s Bayer case and its significance for developing countries in the field of compulsory licensing.

8. Pattern of Road Transport Development in U.P.

Author: Abdul Rahman*,(Pages: 326-333)

Abstract:

The road transport is regarded as one of the most important infrastructures for the over- all growth and development of our economy. This sector has great importance in affecting a socio-economic change in the country because roads are the veins without which no development can take place. The same holds good for the state of U.P., where road transport has assumed a pivot position in the over-all economic development of U.P. That is why the central government passed the Road Transport Corporation Act, 1950 to establish state road transport corporations in various states to provide cheap and adequate transport services in different states. Over the years, Road transport has become vital to the economic development and social integration of the country. Road transport has attained a dominant position within the transport sector and accounted for a share of 4.7% in India?s G.D.P. in 2010-11 while it was only 3.9% during the year 2001-02. In a globalized world, road transportation system is vital for increasing productivity and enabling the country to compete effectively in the world market. A world class road transport system is essential for lending competitive edge to the economy. The present study is an attempt to examine the pattern of road transport development in different periods and its impact on the development of the economy.

9. Women Entrepreneurship Development - with Special Reference to Rural India

Author: Deepti Kanojia, Ashwani Kumar,(Pages: 334-347)

Abstract:

For development of any economy women entrepreneurs? plays an important role. In developing countries, a large percentage of micro-enterprises are undertaken by women. In addition to domestic responsibilities and childcare, rural women frequently have primary responsibility for agricultural production. In developing country like India where economic status of women is very pathetic especially in rural areas and opportunities of earnings are very less, the Self Help Groups (SHGs) have cleared the way for economic independence of rural women. This paper reviews concisely the literature in this field and addresses in particular opportunities and challenges faced by women entrepreneurs. It examined the impact on women empowerment through micro entrepreneurship development and SHGs. In 2008, the world had undergone a global economic crisis. Since women always face greater difficulties in obtaining capital than men, the economic crisis had a greater effect on them. The purpose of this paper is to examine the implications of the global crisis for women?s entrepreneurship, from the perspective of equality, diversity and inclusion. The paper reviews studies on gender differences in entrepreneurship, focusing on 2007 and 2008 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) studies that examined the rates of entrepreneurship in 43 countries. The data show that in all 43 countries, the rates of women?s entrepreneurship are lower than men?s. Furthermore, the percent of women entrepreneurs is higher in countries where the general income per capita is small and where women have no other option for making a living.

10. Foreign Direct Investment in Retail Sector in India: Opportunities And Challenges

Author: Deepak Kumar*, Sachin Goel,(Pages: 348-353)

Abstract:

On November 24, 2011, The Union Cabinet of the Indian Government approved a proposal of allowing 51 per cent FDI in the multi-brand retailing in India and 100 per cent FDI in the Single-brand. The United States suggest that FDI in organized retail could help tackle Inflation, particularly with whole sale prices. As a result the Indian government has stalled the implementation of this proposal which has temporarily washed off the wishes of the global retail player awaiting a bite of the Indian retail Market. FDI should be opened in a gradual phased manner, allowing a lead- time for the Indian retailers to strengthen their position. India?s retail sector remains off?limits to large international chains especially in multi-brand retailing. A number of concerns have been raised about opening up the retail sector to FDI in India. The first concern is the potential impact of large foreign firms on employment in the retail sector. A second related concern raised in the DIPP?s report is that opening up FDI would lead to unfair competition and ultimately result in large- scale exit of incumbent domestic retailers, especially the small family-owned business.

13. Perception of Short-Term Financial Sources for Women Entrepreneurs: An Empirical Study

Author: T.S. Tomar*,(Pages: 366-375)

Abstract:

Investors see very difficult starting conditions, valuation problems, forecasting issues and entrepreneurial opportunism; leading to an undersupply of risk capital for women entrepreneurs. The enterprises run by women tend to be small even by the standards of the informal sector. They are run on a part time basis to allow women to attend to their other social obligations. By virtue of having economic independence, women built up better confidence in the decision-making process of the family. They believed in joint partnership of husband and wife and in some cases in their own capacity independently in different matters of decisionmaking in the family. Yet, the income of these women was not enough to meet the day to day expenditures of the family. Perception of Women Entrepreneurs about short-term financial sources was identified with the help of social variables of age, education, training and family structure of women entrepreneurs. The null hypothesis that the perception of short term sources of finance availed by women entrepreneurs are dependent of the variables of age, education, training and family structure of women entrepreneurs was tested empirically.
