70th Week@XIMB

70th Week@XIMB - 7th October to 13th October, 2012

7th October - Sunday : BASF field visit.

8th October - I learned about CST, VAT and upcoming GST in SCM lecture. Under the CST Act, the tax is collected at one stage of purchase or sale of goods. Therefore, the burden of the full tax bond is borne by only one dealer, either the first or the last dealer. However, under the VAT system, the tax burden would be shared by all the dealers from first to last. Then, such tax would be passed upon the final consumers. There was brief discussion on FDI in retail that is a hot topic these days .

9th October - There were no classes. There was very important batch meet regarding placement. We all are heading towards the future determined by the placement, there is an uncertainty in the even calm minds also. As Keynes has said, we have, as a rule, only the vaguest idea of any but the most direct consequence of our acts. In our decisions, the pull of reality is greater than pull of dreams. I don't know where I will flow!

10th October - In this SCM lecture, there was study on transportation and inventory cost.

11th October -Fr. Sirinus Topno, S.J. left for his heavenly abode yesterday evening due to cardiac arrest. Fr. Sirinus served the Institute in various capacities such as Administrator of CENDERET and MDC since 2010.

Gramotsava launch. Gramotsava, an event conceptualised by students of Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar is done to promote products and business concepts among rural masses, got underway from Thursday. The event, organised by Rural Managers’ Association of XIMB (RMAX), saw the unveiling of the official banner for Gramotsava 2012 with the theme ‘Back to the Roots’ here.

There was a talk given our alumni Parul from CMF -IFMR. This talk revolved around impact assessment of the project. Her work profile was more a policy based action research that requires good knowledge of statistics & econometrics with software's like SPSS, STATA.

12th October - The launch will be followed by a two-day fair in the rural haats of Tangi and Begunia in the districts of Cuttack and Khurda, respectively. Daily Pioneer newspaper has covered the item in detail.

13th October - I was absent from the 2nd day of Gramotsava. Better said than done, guys (Binayak Acharya, Kshitij Gupta & Gaurish Manerkar) from batch had won 1st Prize in a debate competition held at KIIT.
