Paper Title:

Effects of Demographic Factors on Employee’s Quality of Work life in Pharmaceutical Industry – A study

Abstract: There are many factors to determine the employee’s quality of work life. Though, the demographic variables occupies wide place which means that there are lot of changes in between the employees groups when they are divided with demographic factors. For the study, two major demographic factors were selected to analyze i.e., employee’s age, and designation. The data was collected by proportionate sampling method by using close ended questionnaires with 4 point scale. The research problem was identified as whether the selected demographic factors are influencing the quality of work life or not. To solve the problem, an ANOVA analysis was done to find out the changes on the responses between employee groups based on the employee’s age and designation. Then, found that there is a significant difference is observed on their responses about the QWL factors adequate and fair compensation, availability of resources, opportunity for carrier growth, job security, working time, work and life balance and work itself and also found that there is no significant difference was observed between the employee groups on  health and safety working conditions.

 Quality of work life, Age, Designation, Pharmaceutical industry, Health and safety, Fair compensation.

Paper Title:

Frictional Order Host-Vector Model for Transmission of Dengue Fever

Abstract:  Main purpose of this paper is to formulate an epidemiological model for dengues fever transmission using fractional order derivatives. Due to memory effect property, fractional order derivative has a benefit over the classical integer order models. This model for transmission of dengue fever of the non-integer order initial value problem will be based on the well-known fractional order Caputo derivative. Here our focus is on the existence of non-negative solutions of the frictional order dengue fever transmission model, furthermore, equilibria of the model and local asymptotic stability of model equilibria is investigated. In the end fractional order transmission model for dengue fever without immunity is presented.

Index Funds: An Emerging Mutual Fund Investment Scheme

Abstract: Financial market is back bone of any economy.  Innovation in financial instruments has given rise to mutual funds.  Mutual funds are novel financial service which emerged in India during the year 1964.  As mutual funds are professionally managed it is expected to give good return and also gives advantage of liquidity and diversification.  Indian mutual fund industry has undergone a radical change and has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of products and asset under management.  Right now Indian mutual industry is managing Rs. 16.5 Lakh Crore of funds.  It has introduced many products such as income funds, equity funds, balanced funds, money market funds, fund of funds and many others.  Out of these funds equity funds constitutes a major proportion.  Equity funds are of many types such as sectoral funds, index funds, Equity Linked tax saving schemes, diversified funds etc.  Out of these funds index funds is one of the recent origin which offers the primary advantage of earning the return equal to stock market. Index funds will follow a passive investment strategy where investment under these funds will replicate the movements of benchmark indices like Nifty, Sensex etc.  Index funds are of wide range offered by many asset management companies.   Identifying right schemes will benefit the investor by providing superior return.  Thus in this study an attempt is made to analyse the performance of index mutual fund schemes listed in National Stock exchange.  The study has taken 3 years data pertained to index mutual fund schemes to understand about its performance, risk etc.  According to present study out of 13 mutual fund schemes 7 have returns higher than the nifty index.  The study result based on three years data show the top three funds are  HDFC Index Fund Nifty Plan, IDFC Nifty Fund Growth and UTI Nifty Index Fund – Growth. The bottom three funds are SBI Nifty Index, LIC Index Fund- Nifty- Growth, and IDBI Nifty Index Fund.

Facilitators and Barriers to Innovation Adoption: An Investigation

Abstract:  Innovation is at the heart of competitive advantage of organizations.  Firms, irrespective of their sizes, need to engage in continuous innovations to survive and succeed in the market place. This research measured the impact of pre- innovation adoption variables on the innovation adoption of the firms. The study was conducted at the knitwear manufacturing cluster of Tirupur district that operate in a highly competitive hosiery market. The final results indicated that the facilitators have positive influence on innovation adoption, while barriers negatively influence innovation adoption. The research establishes the need for a strong innovation climate within organizations, facilitated by leadership, which will drive innovations significantly.
