Page 11-22

For Abstract: Click Here

Liquidity and Profitability are the two important aspects of the modern business life. If there is no liquidity, there cannot be good profitability. This profitability depends on both working capital and fixed capital. And, in working capital, inventory is the main component and its management is a major problem for Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector in India. FMCG Companies have to match its inventories with timely mobilization of resources. It is observed that top executives of FMCG sector in India have devoted much time and attention to project finance but no adequate attention has been given to management of internal component as inventory management. Management of FMCG companies tends to use the available funds without planning and often get stuck into problems. For this, top executives have to give best attention to inventory management. Inefficient management of inventory leads to either under stocking or overstocking which leads to increase in product cost or resources remain idle. It may further lead to less control over performance of workers, inefficient store keeping, inadequate stock of raw material and finished goods resulting delay in the flow of the working in progress and lack of co-ordination in FMCG Company. So, the amount of inventories in FMCG Companies should neither be more nor less than what are needed. The Management of FMCG sector in India has to see that funds invested as inventory must earn at least as much as they would have earned if invested elsewhere.

Title: Overview Of Ad-Hoc Routing Protocol For Performance Analysis

Authors: Dr. Mahesh Kumar, Sushma Shival

Page 29-32

For Abstract: Click Here

An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. There are a number of routing protocols developed by researchers. Due to the nature of ad hoc networks, secure routing is an important area of research in developing secured routing protocols. Although researchers have proposed several secure routing protocols, their resistance towards various types of security attacks and efficiency are primary points of concern in implementing these protocols. Hence there is a need for evaluation. Some of the available secure routing protocols and most common attack patterns against ad hoc networks are studied and discussed. These secure ad hoc routing protocols are analysed in their performance. The analysis process is done in two phases. Firstly case studies of common attack patterns are carried on secure routing like denial-of-service attack, tunneling, spoofing, black hole attack and wormhole attack. And then in second phase selected secure routing protocols are subjected to simulation tests using NS-2 simulation tool by commonly known ad hoc performance metrics: packet delivery ratio, byte overhead, packet overhead, medial latency and average end-to-end delay. Finally observed results for the two phases and scope of future work are discussed.

Title: An Analytical Study Of Exim Policy Of India: The Way Forward

Page 33-38

For Abstract: Click Here

Foreign trade has an important role to play in the economic development of India. Today, a county cannot fulfill its needs independently. It has to depend upon other countries. With the implementation of structural adjustment programs and liberal trade and exchange rate policies, the Indian economy is moving fast towards the distortion-free market systems. Consequently, the production specializations and export patterns are driven more by the fundamentals like factor endowment base, production technology and taste. These fundamentals, however, are not exogenous factors; rather they change over time, and thereby alter the pattern of comparative advantage. The abundance of unskilled and semi-skilled workers and the natural resources had traditionally given India a competitive edge over its rival in resource-based goods like tea, ores and concentrates, and in low skill intensive manufactures such as cotton and leather manufacture. But the recent export performances of these goods are not encouraging. Production technologies are often not upgraded in these industries. The innovation rates in general remain poor as well, whereas the technologies in the west have progressed in leaps and bounds. This paper examine and explain the trend of India’s foreign trade, remedial measures to correct the trade deficit and signifies the difference with the help of some statistical tool i.e. t-test.

Title: Emperical Study Of Commercial Viability Of Power Sector Companies In India

Authors: Geeta Chauhan

Page 39-42

For Abstract: Click Here

Commercial viability, as the phrase depicts is nothing but the capability to produce money, i.e. the ability to generate enough profit to survive. Every firm strives to earn maximum profits. The profitability objective in this context measures not the maximum profit the business can produce but the ‘minimum’ is the rate of profit required for the desired type of investment in an enterprise. It implies that there must be not only enough profit to yield the capital market rate of return on money which is already sunk in the business but also to provide the additional capital needed in order to cover the cost of staying in business. Therefore, the overall objective of a business is to earn at least a satisfactory return on the capital invested in it, consistent with maintaining a sound financial position. Corporate distress including the legal processes of corporate bankruptcy reorganization and liquidation is a sobering economic reality reflecting the uniqueness of the American way of corporate “death”. The unsuccessful business enterprise has been defined in numerous ways in attempts to depict the formal process confronting the firm and/or to categorize the economic problems involved. Four generic terms that are commonly found in the literature are failure, insolvency, default, and bankruptcy.

Over the last few years, India’s economy has been on a high growth trajectory creating unprecedented opportunities for its banking sector. Most banks have enjoyed high growth and their valuations have appreciated significantly during this period. To cope with the pressures of growing competition, Indian commercial banks have adopted several initiatives and customer satisfaction and relationship marketing are some among them. The competition has been especially tough for the public sector banks (PSBs), as the newly established private sector and foreign banks have already sharpened their competitive edge. Indian retail banking seems to be a highly active area to the dealing of commercial banks with individual customers.  In this environment, only those banks can survive which offer the best services and products to the customers. Banks should possess knowledge about consumer behaviour and customer satisfaction in order to survive in the market.

A moment comes, rarely in history, when step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. Trade is an engine of economic development. The establishment of WTO is an important landmark in the history of international trade. When developing countries were liberalizing their economies, they felt the need for better export opportunities. The WTO provides opportunities for countries to grow and realize their export potentials, with appropriate domestic policies in place. The issue of globalization in the Indian context has occurred in the patterns of trade and capital flow in recent years; unfortunately, so far we have not made much use of it. “Globalize or Perish” is now the buzzword synonymous to “Do or Die” which conveys that there is no alternative to globalization and everybody should learn to live with it. India, being a signatory to the agreement that led to WTO, can no way step backwards. This is not the time to curse the darkness but to work for making India emerge as a global market leader. In the present study, an effort has been made to review the impact of WTO on Agriculture Sector in India.

For Abstract: Click Here

"The skills of a nation's workforce and the quality of its infrastructure are what make it unique, and uniquely attractive, in the world economy. Investments in these relatively immobile factors of worldwide production are what chiefly distinguish one nation from another; money, by contrast, moves easily around the world. A workforce that is knowledgeable and skilled at doing complex things, and which can easily transport the fruits of its labours into the global economy, will entice global money to it (Robert Reich)". It is surprising that numerous countries throughout the world have failed to learn from the experiences of the rich economies and of the more recently industrialized countries that sustained investment in human capital is needed for competitiveness and growth. At the end of the last century facilitated the growth of its human capital, and provided the foundation for the building of a welfare state. The fact that now needs to change its approach to welfare does not detract from the standards of living it achieved.

Title: Kautilya On The Creation Of Wealth And Methodology Of Accounting

Authors: Surender Singh

Page 123-125

For Abstract: Click Here

Kautilya, a 4th century B.C.E. economist, recognized the importance of accounting methods in economic enterprises. He realized that a proper measurement of economic performance was absolutely essential for efficient allocation of resources, which was considered an important source of economic development. He viewed philosophy and political science as separate disciplines but considered accounting an integral part of economics. He specified a very broad scope for accounting and considered explanation and prediction as its proper objectives. Kautilya developed bookkeeping rules to record and classify economic data, emphasized the critical role of independent periodic audits and proposed the establishment of two important but separate offices - the Treasurer and Comptroller-Auditor, to increase accountability, specialization, and above all to reduce the scope for conflicts of interest. He also linked the successful enforcement of rules and regulations to their clarity, consistency and completeness. Kautilya believed that such measures were necessary but not sufficient to eliminate fraudulent accounting.

Microfinance has assumed massive importance throughout the world in view of its efficiency in credit allowance, loan refund and decrease of poverty. Microfinance stands as one of the most capable and gainful tools in the fight against overall poverty. Microfinance is being practiced as a tool to attack poverty the world over. Microfinance has been found to be successful in lifting the poor in India above poverty level by providing them increased selfemployment opportunities and making them credit worthy. The poor people especially  women have been always excluded from the formal financial system basically either due to social background or economic backwardness and even sometimes both. Therefore in order to overcome the challenging issues like poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, lack of formal credit support, improvement in socio-economic status, the government of India in organization with NABARD and RBI introduced the concept of Self Help Groups. Although poverty alleviation has long been high priority for the Government of India, microfinance is still an experimental tool in its overall strategy.

Title: Role Of Hedge Funds In Risk And Portfolio Decisions

Authors: Himani Gupta

Page 147-154

For Abstract: Click Here

This paper characterizes the systematic risk exposures of hedge funds using buy-andhold and option-based strategies. Our results show that a large number of equity-oriented hedge fund strategies exhibit payoffs resembling a short position in a put option on the market index, and therefore bear significant left-tail risk, risk that is ignored by the commonly used mean-variance framework. Using a mean-conditional Value-at-Risk framework, we demonstrate the extent to which the mean-variance framework underestimates the tail risk.  Finally, working with the systematic risk exposures of hedge funds, we show that their recent performance appears significantly better than their long-run performance.

Prior studies on this have already proved the existence of relationship between working capital and firm’s performance. In extension to the existing literature, this study is designed to investigate the relationship between working capital management and the firm’s performance i.e. impact on profitability by taking a sample of five selected Indian cement companies for the period 2001-2010. An attempt has been made to investigate the existence of relationship between the working capital management and the profitability, average receivable period, inventory conversion period, average payment period and the cash conversion cycle which expresses the efficiency of working capital. Hypotheses were tested using multiple regression analysis and Pearson’s correlation. It was found that there is a negative significant relationship between accounts receivable period and firm’s profitability, a negative relationship between Inventory conversion period and profitability, negative significant relationship between accounts payable period and profitability but a positive relationship between firm’s cash conversion cycle and its profitability. This shows that firms are selling their inventory and collecting the receivables before they have to pay for the payables. When a company is paid for sales before it pays for the product it sells, it has much more financial flexibility. This is called having a negative cash conversion cycle.

Environmental accounts are a multipurpose data system encompassing a conceptual framework and tables which describes the interrelations between the economy and the environment in a way that is consistent with the national accounts. For instance, they shed light on the amount of pollution produced by industries and households and allow a comparison with the employment and value of output produced by these sectors, or with the expenditure made by these sectors to avoid pollution. Policy makers can use this information to decide where it is most efficient to act. A fully functioning carbon accounting system must be based on measurement that is materially accurate, consistent over space and time, and incorporates data uncertainty. However, achieving these goals is difficult because current carbon accounting efforts are spread across three distinct organisational fields, each prioritising different goals. This paper aims to address these issues.

"Profitability is an overall reflection of the strength and weaknesses of an enterprise."  The term 'profitability' should be distinguished from 'profit'. Profits refer to the absolute quantum of profits whereas the profitability refers to ability of earning profits. Profit is an absolute term while profitability is a relative term where profit is described in relation to capital invested. As observed by Prof. Om Prakash, "Profitability is the capacity of an organization/activity to earn profits in the normal course of operation. Thus, an inefficient firm, which makes large profits on account of fortuitous circumstances (such as sudden price rise/stock-piling programme in the wake of war), would not is strict terms, be profitable. On the other hand, an efficient undertaking which suffers loss accidentally {say resulting from an earthquake} may, still, be deemed as profitable. However, in actual practice, it may be quite difficult to abide by such abstract definition/distinctions. Perhaps, it may be more convenient to say that profitability refers to a situation where output exceeds input. In other words, profitability follows "overall contribution." In this paper Financial Resources Management and Profitability Analysis is discussed.
