For Abstract: Click Here

India is home to 1/6th of world’s population. The suitability and long term sustainability of a financial system to cater to a divergent population comes from being able to handle the wide range of expectations. Participatory micro finance is a process wherein the financier instead of lending small amount on interest to someone actually involves in customer’s business through trade practices or by sharing associated business risk or by leasing out high value assets to the customers. Islamic finance is one form of participatory finance. By outlawing interest, Islam advocated an economy based on risk -sharing, fair dealing and equity–in both financial and social justice senses. The present paper aims to integrate the ethical approach of risk sharing with the basic tenets of Islamic banking which seems to be mistaken as a banking option meant only for Muslims. The study also examines the operational and regulatory issues in this regard.

For Abstract: Click Here

Non-Performing Assets (NPA) of the Indian Public Sector Banks become enormous burden. Analising the Budgets of various years, it reveals that, despite the Indian economy bottoming out, the stock of bad debts of banks has increased. This poses serious risk to the financial sector. In order to solve the problems, restructuring of NPA has been made since twenty years. But, our study has proved that the steps of restructuring of NPA was not prudent in Indian context. The institutions involved in restructuring has paid attention in transferring of loans, rather than realising .The sectors acquired such loans are highly leveraged. Thus, both the borrowers and lenders had played win-win game in the meantime as there would not be any deterioration of the assets quality of the banks and the borrowers would get enough time to repay the loans. Though, Rules has been amended from April, 2015 but the effects of mis-stepping cannot be ignored.

For Abstract: Click Here

The quotation above is one of the search results we got when looking up the word performance in a dictionary. Applying this to the business world and the concept of performance measurement we can give measuring performance the meaning of measuring to what degree a business/organization fulfills its goals. This can be compared to the goal-attainment approach on effectiveness, which defines effectiveness as the extent to which organizations succeed in meeting their goals. However, the concept of performance measurement is more complicated than that present two dimensions of performance .Effectiveness is one of the dimensions, efficiency the other .Effectiveness is described as to the extent shareholder and/or stakeholder requirements are met and efficiency as, provided a given level of stakeholder satisfaction, how economically the business resources are utilized. In its broader meaning they define performance measurement as “the process of quantifying the efficiency and effectiveness of action”. Even if the broader meaning remains the same, the substance of performance measurement changes overtime. The idea of what should be measured, how it should be used and in which context are far from constant.
