Gyan Sangam meaning Knowledge Confluence was a two-day retreat for banks and financial institutions which was held in Pune, to address a key issue that has plagued Indian public sector banks, the gap in performance between themselves and their private sector counterparts. It was attended by the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Reserve Bank Governor.
“There is disparity in private sector banks and PSBs. It is in this context that we need to rethink the strategy in PSBs and that is why we have come to this conclave.

Facts about Gyan Sangam

2) The retreat is being organised to find out "what has gone wrong and what should be done both by banks as well as by the government to improve and consolidate the position of PSBs (public sector banks)".
3) Asset quality & recovery: The increase in bad debts of banks has been a big worry for the government. Total stressed asset in banks rose up to 10.7 per cent of assets as of September 2014, according to RBI data. Analysts say that the load of bad debts is affecting the banks' ability to lend and it might impact the economic recovery process. The bankers also want inadequacies in legal system to be resolved to help the loan recovery process.
4) Financial inclusion: The bankers would be deliberating on financial inclusion, which has been a focus area of the government. Under Jan Dhan Yojana, banks have opened close to 100 million accounts but 75 per cent of those accounts have no balance.
5) Banking restructuring and consolidation: The government needs to infuse as much as Rs 2.4 lakh crore into state-owned banks by end-March 2019 to meet different kinds of capital requirements, the RBI has said. Bankers would be looking for ways to generate more internal…...

...The study reveals that they do not have any definite mechanism with which they manage or cope with problems they encounter in Accra. They only try to manage as and when the problems crop up with the resources available to them. In most cases however, they degrade their statuses in the city to cope with the insults and humiliations they suffer on the line of duty. T Abrefa-Gyan (2002) Ultimately, people lack a productive and household asset, which leads to urban poverty.

Costco Supply Chain Management

...don’t have to sit in inventory for more than 24 hours, which reduces costs (Abbaterusso 2010). Costco’s “warehouse concept” is all about reducing logistics costs, so cross-docking is at the centre of the strategy. The stores’ layout which is similar to a warehouse layout enables Costco to display pallets quantities, which means that almost 75% of the pallets in distribution centres move intact, while the rest are broken down and sorted by case, the result is that pallets spend an average time of 9 hours in a distribution centre, this saves labour costs for picking, packing, and shipping (Sangam 2012). Costco currently uses a post-distribution system, this means that Costco staff attach labels to pallets after receiving them, but future plans are made to make the vendors attach the labels for Costco, to avoid all labour touch at the warehouse and further reduce costs (Sangam 2012). It is also important to mention other factors that contribute to reducing supply chain costs, such as the strict control Costco has over warehouse entrances and exits, which reduced inventory losses to a level below those of competitors (Spencer 2013). Wal-Mart has what is considered by many as the greatest supply chain and distribution network on the planet, but Costco’s momentum of good fortune allows it to outperform its major competitor Sam’s Club (Wal-Mart–owned) in overall and per-store sales (Forbes 2011). Costco’s CIF Richard Galanti said in 2008 that Costco’s......

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai cherished that the next generation anticipates it to be bequeathed with pride and honor. Desai's Inheritance of Loss truly reflects her adeptness for irony. True, the pathetic state of loss can be inherited and may be passed on to future generations, but how can anyone anticipate such a dreadful fate?  The story is delivered in such a compelling way that the reader understands the process of loss of cultural identity being passed on from the elders to the young. Portrayal of irony through characters Irony overcomes the whole novel through its characters. Characters belong to india but it is ironical that they dislike the culture of their roots and admire the culture of west. Characters in the novel are Jemubhai Patel, Panna Lal, Gyan, Biju, Saeed-Saeed, Sai Mistry, Haresh-Harry and the two sisters, Lolita and Nonita. They effectively depict varying kinds and levels of discontent at their own personhoods. It is a mix of pathetic illusions of being part of a culture that does not acknowledge them, hypocritical snubbing of one's own culture and journeying into knowing one's real self and true roots. Jemubhai Patel is an Anglicised Gujarati judge is disgusted with human beings, after bitter racial experiences during the Cambridge days but ironically throughout his latter life he identified himself with British because of his desire to mimic the English colonial identity. Upon contact with a foreign culture, he ironically grew stranger to himself than he was to those......

...Pankaj S Jain, Ravindra H Dholakia This article argues that even an allocation of 6% of the gross domestic product to the education budget would not be sufficient to fund universal school education until the very distant future if the government school system is used as the only instrument. The only way to meet the Right to Education obligation is to rely on low cost private schools as a significant instrument of the government education policy. On the contrary, the proposed rte bill introduces provisions that would oppose low cost private schools. Therefore, the legislation for rte needs to be modified and framed with specific provisions for private-public partnerships. Pankaj S Jain ( is at Gyan Shala, Ahmedabad and Ravindra H Dholakia ( is with the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. 38 T he Directive Principles of Indian Constitution obligates the Indian government to ensure universal school education. In the wake of various official committees and policy pronouncements in this regard, the Indian government has decided to submit a Right to Education (RTE) bill for parliamentary approval, which shall make it a right of each child to receive school education during 6-14-year age. The draft of this bill that implicitly mandates reliance on government type of school system as the major vehicle for RTE implementation has been approved by the cabinet. The present article......
