DLR’s X-band interferometric SAR system onboard the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) has been flown successfully in February 2000 and acquired 3660 G bytes of raw data to be processed to a near global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the earth with an absolute height accuracy of ±16m. Before starting the operational processing deferent kinds of calibration and motion compensation activities based on the attitude and position data and recorded instrument housekeeping data have to be performed. The preliminary results achieved over ocean test areas show the absolute height error and the relative error from the radar noise within specification. The processing and archiving facility is operational and the complete data set will be processed and available to the customers till mid 2003.

The financial crisis has send shock waves cutting across boundaries and economies. Major economies are still struggling to recover. The cause of the crisis was primarily the inefficiency of the banking system to manage their sub-prime asset class. It reflected the importance of efficiency of the banking system irrespective of the credit rating which signifies its quality of asset class. In the contemporary world economy no economic system can remain isolated. Indian banking system also felt the shock but managed it efficiently. This motivates for a comprehensive analysis to discover whether the so called resilience was due to some policy stimulus or the Indian banking industry is intrinsically efficient. Also, the pattern of grouping of the banks plays an important role in providing stability in the inter-connected system. Thus technical analysis of the banks along with the dynamics of cluster formation after factoring the pre- and post-financial crisis time periods was studied, so that it can provide valuable inputs in designing strategic outlook regarding the Indian banking industry.

SEBI, the Indian securities market regulator has set a unique example for the entire world by introducing IPO grading in India 2006 on optional basis and further mandating it from May, 2007. The purpose of this grading was to provide retail investors with a ready-made assessment of the fundamental quality of the issuer of an IPO, so they could make a better and informed investment decision in an era of information overload. Grading of IPOs is subject to severe criticism. Critics question efficacy and effect of this process. But findings of this paper suggest that IPO grading does have strong positive effect on demand (oversubscription). Further, weak impact on returns, little or nil impact on underpricing and strong negative effect on proportion of issued share capital is also noted. Paper infers that all investor classes including retail investors benefit from IPO grading.

This study examined the effect of globalization on growth of Nigerian Economy from 1980 to 2017. The used secondary data sourced mainly from the Central Bank of Nigeria Statistical bulletin and the SWISS Economic Institute (KOF). A multiple regression model which has economy growth, proxy by real gross domestic product as the dependent variable and globalization disaggregated into overall globalization, economic globalization, social globalization, and political globalization as the independent variables was estimated using Engle-Granger (1979) Error correction model approach. The unit root test shows that all the variables are integrated of order 1(1), while the co-integration test result revealed that the variables are co-integrated. Estimates from the error correction models show that overall globalization had positive and significant effect on economic growth, while political globalization had positive, but insignificant impact on economic growth. It was therefore recommended that government should create conducive macro-economic environment and invest in critical infrastructure to position the economy for positive globalization effects.

The National Youth Policy was formulated in the year 1988, in 2003 and subsequently in 2014. The changes in the socio-economic and other conditions in the country call for a reformulation recurrently so that the contemporary situation is taken stock of and absorbed into the policy for the youth well-being. India is the worlds highest youth densely populated country. The Census 2011 mentions youth population in the age group of 15-24 amounting to 231 million and the decadal growth is +22.1% while the sex ratio is 908 (882) in 2011. It is an urgent call to all stakeholders interested in youth development to take a serious look into the policies, programmes and schemes crafted for the youth along with the pros and cons of the implementation and review them in accordance with the rising needs and demands of the youth population in the country. In it their participation, cooperation, contribution and inclusion should be the main approach. This paper shall primarily have a relook into the policies of 2003 and 2014 and present an analysis of them for better understanding of the same.

This paper empirically discovered the inter-linkages between stock and crude oil prices before and after the subprime financial crisis 2008 by using Johansan co-integration and Granger causality techniques to explore both long and short- run relationships. The whole data set of Nifty index, Nifty energy index, BSE Sensex, BSE energy index and oil prices are divided into two periods; before crisis (from February 15, 2005 to December31, 2007) and after crisis (from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2018) are collected and analyzed. The results discovered that there is one-way causal relationship from crude oil prices to Nifty index, Nifty energy index, BSE Sensex and BSE energy index but not other way around in both periods. However, a bidirectional causality relationship between BSE Energy index and crude oil prices during post subprime financial crisis 2008. The co-integration results suggested that the absence of long run relationship between crude oil prices and market indices of BSE Sensex, BSE energy index, Nifty index and Nifty energy index before and after subprime financial crisis 2008.

Despite the ever exploiting benefits in Fourth Generation (4G) Telecom such as e-Life from Etisalat-UAE, vendors’ economical limitation for providing high quality streaming services in limited bandwidth and coverage expectation cannot be ignored. A unique systems support involving the Customer Relationship, Resource Planning, and Supply Chains exist in both Mobile Service Providers and Mobile Equipment Providers. Despite its complexity, the operational objectives of SCM planning may vary greatly from MSP to MSP and MEP to MEP, hence is the main objective for our work presented here. In this paper, we explore the strategic, technical and operational indicators, while migrating legacy 4G MSP deployments into 5G to conform the e-governess needs.

Through this study, the objective is to study the effect of implementation of Activity Based Costing (ABC) and the information generated on various types of decisions made by managers. ABC system of costing, when implemented, gives visible benefits for any firm. First, for implementation, all the components of cost are thoroughly studied, that generally are not done when we follow traditional method of costing and we distribute certain overheads for cost calculations on absorption or apportionment basis. Secondly, the complete process is scrutinised in detail and analysis is done to check the efficiency against the predefined benchmarks. Use of information based on ABC can increase the efficiency, closing down of unprofitable segments and to utilise the available resources in more profitable operations, which ultimately leads in cost reduction and increase in revenue and in turn, better financial performance. However, initially the implementation of ABC technique for estimation of cost may involve a lot many challenges. An ABC analysis may not be popularised because of two key reasons. First, it may not reveal every time any new information to the management that it already knows before the ABC analysis, and secondly, it may require the hiring of outside specialists/consultants for implementation and also the change in organisational structure which some time is resisted by the management, as management may not be willing to work on recommendations of an outsider’s data and analysis which may significantly be different from the earlier adopted traditional costing techniques. However, ABC system can be a more accurate way of costing and can go a long way in managing pricing, profit and revenue, taking decision relating to product mix etc. in both manufacturing and service sector.

There is a large body of finance literature that has tested and validated dividend policy decisions mainly focused on the effect of the dividend announcement and the impact it has on the post announcement drift. But very few studies have tested the determinants of the cumulative abnormal return (CAR) surrounding the dividend announcement and to find the role of economic adversity in explaining the change in CAR. The present study investigates the role of change in dividend under both adverse and favorable market conditions. Using the data of S&P CNX 500 companies the study examines the role of dividend yield and EPS in explaining cumulative abnormal return over a period of seven years. Using VAR methodology the study examined the determinants of CAR surrounding the dividend announcement and the dynamic relationship between the variables. The results of the study showed that during adversity, dividend yield is the major factor explaining CAR. Variables like EPS, volume and price explain the CAR when there is no economic adversity. The study found that there is a significant relationship between abnormal return and its determinants.

Biofertilizers are fertilizers containing microorganisms that promote plant growth by improving the supply of nutrients to the host plant. The supply of nutrients is improved naturally by nitrogen fixation and solubilizing phosphorus. The living microorganisms in biofertilizers help in building organic matter in the soil and restoring the natural nutrient cycle. Biofertilizers can be grouped into Nitrogen-fixing biofertilizers, Phosphorous-solubilizing biofertilizers, Phosphorous-mobilizing biofertilizers, Biofertilizers for micro nutrients and Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria. This study conducted in Kottayam district was intended to identify the awareness and acceptance of biofertilizers among the farmers of the area. Data have been collected from 120 farmers by direct interviews with structured questionnaire.

This paper examines the relative sensitivity of CEO compensation of both acquiring and acquired firms in the top 30 U.S. largest corporate acquisitions in each year for the period of 2003 to 2012. We find that total compensation and bonus granted to executive compensation for acquired companies, not acquiring companies, are significantly related to the amount of acquisition deal even after the size and firm performance are controlled for. Both acquiring and acquired CEOs are found to make the significantly higher compensation than the matched sample firms in the same industry and calendar year. We also find that executives with higher managerial power, as measured by a lower salary-based compensation mix, prior to a corporate acquisition are more likely to receive a higher executive pay in the year of acquisition. The association between executive compensation and managerial power seems to be stronger for acquired firms than for acquiring firms in corporate acquisition. Overall, our findings suggest that corporate acquisition has higher impacts on executive compensation for acquired firm CEOs than for acquiring firm CEOs.
