Patents obtained and filed (process and product)

NIL

Original research contributing to product improvement Contribution of MRP’s



in product improvement:-


  1. Ph. D on ‘Practices and Outcomes of Demergers in Indian Corporate Sector’ by Dr. Seema Singhal (Dept. of Commerce).

This study analysed whether demerger scenario really adds wealth to

shareholders and to what extent it does so. Now, the trend is changing after the long

merger process taking place, demerger is now taking its seat. The study revealed that

the main aim behind demerger is to concentrate on the specific business in which

they have expertise and allow other business units to raise their own capital.

It is felt that the value of the business when separated will be more than the

value of the group. Other reasons for demergers are selling unwanted surplus in

business, utilizing financial and human resources for better profitable opportunities,

thereby carrying the restructuring strategy and get rid of sick entity. It is also to raise

capital gains from assets acquired at the time of underperformance of the entity.

2. MRP on W.T.O. & Service Sector by Mrs. Rekha Garg (Dept. of Economics).


The study shows that Services trade has been acting as a cushion for India’s

current account of balance of payment helping in covering the trade deficit.

But education as a service, which has a huge global market is yet to be fully

explored and exploited. If we are able to improve both the quality and quantity of

our education services, some of the students will prefer to stay back in India and it

will help retaining talent needed by Indian Economy to grow. It will also help to

reduce our BOP deficit.

It is envisaged that private initiative in education delivering quality, we could

wean away some of this market from the U.S. What is needed is good policy and an

enlightened, but tough regulator.


Research studies or surveys benefiting the community or improving the

services

  1. Surveys are carried out by N.S.S. unit in the adopted slum areas. Various surveys were conducted in the adopted areas i.e. Ravidass Majri and Valmiki Majri.

Areas of surveys:-

* Health & Hygiene on 19/3/2012.

* Hygiene & Sanitation on 18/3/2014.

* Beti Bachao, Beti padhao on 18/3/2015.

* Hygiene & Sanitation on 21/3/2015.

* Gender Inequality on 19/3/2015.



Observations of the surveys were:-

* Approx 50% adult were found illiterate.

* 80% women were found anaemic.

* Most of the resident were not aware about Beti Bachao,

Beti Padhao.

* There was stagnant water.

* Most of the resident were suffering from dental problems.

How community was benefited. N.S.S. Units of the college organized

different activities in collaboration with Civil hospital, Bharat Vikas Parishad,

Rotary Club, Divya Jyoti Sansthan and Inner Wheel Club, Ambala City for

the following:-

* Free Dental Check-up Camp was organized. Doctors advised the residents to

follow health routine for teeth, prescribed medicine and dental treatment,

free tooth paste and brushes were distributed.

* A free blood test camp was organized. Those who were found anaemic, were

counselled and advised to take healthy food and free Iron tablets were given

to them.


* People residing in slum areas are more prone to water borne diseases and

Other communicable diseases. So a camp was organized on Hygiene &

Sanitation where volunteers of N.S.S. Unit demonstrated the ways of

keeping the surrounding areas clean and made them aware about benefits of

personal Hygiene.

* Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao is a very important issue in present times.

Gender inequalities and crimes against women are the biggest problems or

obstacles in the social progress of two country. For the awareness of masses, a

Rally on the topic was organized by the N.S.S. Unit. Through slogans and

posters volunteers tried to bring awareness among general public about the

rights of girl child.

N.S.S. units also work for the social cause of Environment Protection and

Equal rights of women. For this, N.S.S. Unit launched tree plantation drives

from time to time. Plants were distributed among the residents of surrounding

areas and volunteers taught them the ways of protecting of trees and benefits

we can drive from them.




  1. Mrs. Rekha Garg (Asso. Prof. Dept. of Economics) was appointed as Master Trainer for census (Population Enumeration) conducted in Haryana w.e.f. 9th Feb 2011 and got ‘Appreciation Letter’ for the work done.

∗ Research inputs contributing to new initiatives and social development

helped to appreciate the relevance of their thoughts for promotion of

universal peace, harmony and tolerance.
