Government Policies and Vision: A Parameter for Choosing Career Option

There are total 3 stages where a student (not parents) is given option to choose his own career path.  At stage one, when he enters in the higher secondary education from secondary. He dreams something and accordingly he selects a broad area such as Science (Math or Bio), Commerce or Arts. Second stage comes after passing Sr. Secondary exam which is the key stage where he selects a very specific area for under graduation. Third stage comes after under gradation where students decide for their future strategy. If we see carefully these stages, the students are provided reasonable guidance by parents in selecting the broad area at 11th standard. However, students are most confused after passing out 10+2 exams due to different advices, insecurity, and pressure of parents’ ambitions and most importantly due to influence of friends’ decision. Third stage is full of clarity with freedom for students to finalize their career.

As per the study done by Career360, More than one crore students appear for their 10+2 examination each year across India. Of these, just over 15 per cent get the opportunity to go for higher studies and their choices have been uniform from time immemorial. The students are not aware of several career options they have. Parents play a very important role in decision making at this time. Now, what can be methodology to select the right career option? Parents first need to assess their ward’s interest area. One study that the parents only can do is to search career by looking into the Government’s policies and vision of coming 2-4 years. These visions show the growth direction of specific areas.

To make smart grid a reality in India

As electricity demands are increasing day by day causing unbalance in the present grid system which results in various causes like load shedding, unbalance voltage etc. which ultimately affects the consumers.

Though government has taken series of steps to increase the generation capacity, it has lagged behind electricity demand and in addition to this, almost 25 -30% generated power is lost due to theft and other technical and non-technical factors. The major part of this loss occurred in the distribution sector, which is most daunting sector due to its complexity, interface with public at large with different needs & expectations. These high losses are neutralizing all other efficiency and improvement initiatives, which are the biggest challenges for distribution sector. The need to improve this sector was realized and step had taken to reduce high transmission & distribution (T&D) losses, control the theft / pilferage and rationalize the tariff.

The adaptation of smart grid offers a potential to revolutionize electricity supply system more effectively. Smart grid is a platform that integrates, monitor and operate electrical system in an automated fashion and provides a better use of existing network with basic automation systems followed by its upgradation. In India, challenges for implementation of smart grid are high transmission & distribution (T&D) losses, power theft, inadequate grid infrastructure, low metering efficiency and lack of awareness.

Critical Success Factors of B-School

To be on the top, is the core desire of all endeavors be it business, politics, education or administration, but only few could reach and remain at the top. Education is the enabler and rider of acquiring the art and skills of success. Institutes of Management education are either the farmhouses or powerhouse of shaping and sharpening business-talents, who inculcate and facilitate the acts and the process of acquiring and imparting the knowledge of doing business. Institutes of Management those who have transformed their admitted students into business executives and leaders have attained the ladder of success and raised walls and gates their entry.

Realizing that Government alone cannot educate millions of young Indians, Government of India invited private players to join hands. Many entrepreneurs, industrialist and philanthropist became enthusiastic, who had little or no experience in education but were eager to learn. With the passage of time, these private players have built high quality infrastructures and have provided opportunities for millions of Indians for higher learnings. They adopted the policy of lower entry requirements and lower tuition fees but paid greater attention in promotion, in contrast to premier institutions’ strategy of high fees and high entry requirements and less promotion policy. The strategy of lower “fees’ and higher promotion might have worked for few B-Schools, but many new entrants failed to attract sufficient numbers of talented business education aspirants.

The four puzzling questions are:

  • What the top Management Institutes do to attract the talented students and teachers?
  • How the top Institutes of Management do things differently than the rests?
  • What a new entrant should do to ride the leader of success?
  • What are the missing keys?
