Introduction:~ Information and knowledge on the level of agricultural development below the state level is prerequisite to design policy measures for development of backward regions. The available study on agricultural development at the district level analysis by Bhalla and Singh (2001) covers the period from 1962/5 to 1990/3 only. Almost a decade has passed since than. A number of significant developments have occurred since then. Numerous policies and programs have been initiated in Indian economy under the ongoing processes of liberalization and globalization (under the GATT/WTO agreement). The main aim of the proposed study is to assemble district level evidence for a broader assessment of development and growth in Indian agriculture for the latest period 2001/2-2003/4, the period for which the latest district level data is available.
However, before embarking on to examine the performance of agriculture growth across districts in India it would be worthwhile to have a macro overall view of the Indian agriculture. A broad overview of emerging trends and tendencies in wake of the recent developments following the processes of liberalization and globalization of Indian economy since early 1990s, expected to equip us in better understanding of the emerging district level spatial pattern and dynamics in the Indian agriculture.

Financial Management Strategies for Retail Industry in India-a Case Study of Retail Scenario in Hyderabad and Secunderabad
Retail Industry in India: The Indian retail industry is the largest among all the industries, accounting for over 10 per cent of the country’s GDP and around 8 per cent of the employment. The retail industry in India has come forth as one of the most dynamic and fast paced industries with several players entering the market. But all of them have not yet tasted success because of the heavy initial investments that are required to break even and compete with other companies. The Indian retail industry is gradually inching its way towards becoming the next boom industry.
A large young working population with median age of 24 years, nuclear families in urban areas, along with increasing working-women population and emerging opportunities in the services sector are going to be the key factors in the booming. Click here to read more…

Child Labour in the Restaurants and Eateries A case study of Pune City
The problem of child labour continues to be a major challenge before the nation. The complicated issue of child labour is developmental by nature worth investigating. The notion that children are being exploited and forced into labour is a concern for many people.
India can be considered as one of the largest example of a nation plagued by the problem of child labour. Historically child labour existed in all countries, but in today’s world the incidence of child labour is widespread mostly in the developing countries.
Although the number of children working throughout the world is unknown, it is very large indeed and unquestionably in the hundreds of millions. In recent years the child labour problem and its impact have received increased attention.
Undoubtedly this increased attention is due in part to the fact that child labour often has serious social, moral, economic and demographic implications for children, households, communities, societies and the world. Therefore, the elimination or reduction of child labour has been the aim of numerous fields in different parts of the world.Click here to read more…

Under the Constitution, India is a Union of States and all legislative powers are divided between the Centre and the States. Briefly, the scheme of distribution of legislative powers is that the Parliament has exclusive power to make laws with respect to matters enumerated in List I of the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution, called the Union List. The State Legislatures have exclusive power to make laws with respect to matters enumerated in List II, i.e. the State List. However, in certain contingencies, e.g. when the Rajya Sabha passes a resolution under article 249 empowering the Parliament to make law on a State subject or the Legislatures of two or more States ask Parliament to do so by way of their resolutions or a State is under President’s Rule and all powers of the State Legislature are vested in the Parliament, it can make laws on a subject enumerated in the State List. List III, called the Concurrent List, comprises subjects on which both Parliament and the Legislatures of the States have concurrent power. However, in the event of a repugnancy between the Central and the State law so made, the Central law would prevail. Since residuary powers vest in Parliament, it can also make laws in areas not specifically enumerated in any of the three Lists included in the Seventh Schedule.

Case Study about Agricultural Land Market Transactions in Chhattisgarh
Abstract: In the newly born state of Chhattisgarh a large number of land buyers have become actively engaged in the villages located along the national highway and at the periphery of Raipur city, the capital of Chhattisgarh to purchase prime agricultural land. In view of the fast emerging land markets after the formation of the state, it is imperative to understand the role of market and non-market forces in transaction of prime agricultural land for non-agricultural uses and transactions within the agriculture sector. This study is an attempt in this direction. The study has been conducted in the Jora, Labhandi, Serikhedi and Dharampura villages of Dharsiwa block in Raipur district of Chhattisgarh state. These villages are located on both sides of Mumbai-Raipur-Kolkatta National Highway No.6 and are in the close periphery of the Raipur city.
Introduction: A few studies have been conducted in different parts of India to estimate the extent of land transactions, demand and supply relationship, effect of land markets, land distribution patterns, legal dimensions of land transactions and policy implications. However, such research inputs are inadequately available in newly born state of Chhattisgarh, where land transactions have been taking place at a rapid pace on the periphery of big cities. A large number of land hungers have become actively engaged in the villages located on the periphery of Raipur city the capital of Chhattisgarh state, to purchase prime agricultural land. The problem is more serious in the villages which are located along the national highway. In view of fast emerging land markets after the formation of the state, it is imperative to understand the role of market and non-market forces in transa ction of prime agricultural land for nonagricultural uses and transactions within the agriculture sector. This study is an attempt in this direction.
Case Study about Application Of Value Engineering For Cost Reduction: Universal Testing Machine
Abstract: This paper presents the basic fundamental of value engineering that can be implemented in any product to optimize its value. A case study of a Universal Testing Machine (UTM) is discussed in which the material, design of components is changed according to the value engineering methodology. In the present case study, it is observed that the unnecessary increase in cost is due to the use of expensive material, increase in variety of hardware items and thereby increasing the inventory and so on. Therefore we have selected some components from UTM i.e Hand Wheel, Range Selector Knob, Top Bearing Bracket Assembly, Dial Bracket, Recorder Gear etc.
Introduction: Design Engineer in G.E.C. USA organized the technique of ‘Value Analysis’ while attempting to reduce the manufacturing cost of some products. His attempt was to search for unnecessary manufacturing cost and indicate the ways to reduce it without lowering down the performance of product. However in India, VE is mostly associated to any alternative design with the intension to cost cutting exercise for a project, which is merely one of the initial intension of the VE. This paper outlines the basic frame work of value Engineering and present a case study showing the merits of VE in a universal testing machine.

Abstract: This paper presents the basic fundamental of Value Engineering and its different phases that can be implemented in any product to optimize its value. A case study is discussed of a bath fitting product in which the material of the product is changed according to the value engineering methodology. The material is chosen such that the cost is reduced without affecting the value of the product and its design.
Introduction: Value Engineering (VE), which is originated from the US military industry in the early 60 of this century, has been extensively applied in construction industry nowadays. Foo, T.H.(2002) and Chong, S.N.(2002) has given some useful frameworks on the application of VE. However, in India, VE is mostly associated to any alternative design with the intention of cost cutting exercise for a project, which is merely one of the initial intentions of the VE. This paper outlines the basic frameworks of Value Engineering and presents a case study showing the merits of VE in a Bath Fittings Manufacturing Industry.
