 Author : Sandeep Chaudhary
 Abstract :
During the past two decades, the inclusion movements have made significant progress in (a) supporting the rights of children to have their special educational needs identified and met through education legislation and the right of individuals with disabilities to equal opportunities, (b) minimizing unjustified discrimination, and (c) developing support facilities and services for individuals with special needs (Disability Rights Task Force Final Report, 2004; Ministry of Education, 2004). Despite the apparent benefits of inclusion, and regardless of the teachers' commitment and positive attitudes; and notwithstanding their having the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the educational needs of diverse students with disabilities, teachers were concerned about the academic, social, and behavioral adjustment of the students with disabilities. The main characteristic of inclusive education is the teachers' willingness to accept students with special needs. Their attitudes and knowledge about inclusive education are important as these are indicators of such willingness. The purpose of this study was to examine teachers' attitudes and their perceived knowledge towards inclusive education in Punjab. The respondents (n=50) were the mainstream and special education teachers in the public primary and secondary schools. They were given a set of questionnaire which sought their responses regarding their attitudes and knowledge towards inclusive education. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation. The statistical tool used for the analysis was Factor analysis.

 Author : Dr. Jayant Sonwalkar,Neha Soni Kumar
 Abstract : The study present export performance of India for doing business with Bolivia. Bolivia is a country in central South America, with a varied terrain spanning Andes Mountains, the Atacama Desert and Amazon Basin rainforest. The country's population, estimated at 10 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Mestizos, Europeans, Asians and Africans. Economic growth in Bolivia averaged 4.9% between 2004 and 2014. In this context, despite the significant expansion of public investment, the country has maintained current account and fiscal surpluses that have enabled it to accumulate important macroeconomic cushions. Oil prices have a delayed effect on natural gas export prices, for which reason Bolivia has only partially felt the decrease in commodity prices. Although growth remains strong as compared with other countries of the region, an economic deceleration has been observed throughout the year. Bolivia has many regional trade events that could be used to promote products or to test market interest. Imports in Bolivia are expected to be 702.12 USD Million by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.

 Author : Ashish Kumar Gupta
 Abstract : Poverty is a barrier to a noble life. Self-employment is an important step to have constant incomes and remove the fetters of poverty.

 Name : Study on Credit Card Usage Behaviour in Mumbai
 Author : Puneet Singh,Geetha Iyer
 Abstract : The study investigates credit card ownership and usage in Indian metro cities, taking Mumbai into consideration, and their posited association with consumer demographics. In this study, we find that credit card usage behaviour in Mumbai is relatively high and that this appears to be influenced by consumer demographics and in particular income, age, gender and income as well as number of credit cards owned per person, i.e., ownership pattern.The growing popularity and ownership of credit cards in the western belt of India makes it relevant for such a research to be conducted taking a sample representative of the population of Mumbai. This will aid in interpreting the manner in which demographics influence the usage pattern. The study shows that the results obtained are inconsistent with the previous studies, where the usage was expected to increase with age and income, and males were expected to use credit cards more frequently. The study recommends segmenting the market in Mumbai based on consumer demographics. Keywords: Consumer Behaviour, Credit Cards, Mumbai.

 Author : Shraddha Mishra, Prof. Raj Kumar
 Abstract :
For attainment of the new technological skills, managerial expertise, and innovative strategies, the outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) is the need of the Indian market. We yearned to know the overall scene of Indian OFDI and its impact on macro-economic factors. The data used in the current study consists of multiple time series for the period 1990 to 2014 for India, the choice of period is determined by the availability of data over the time. The study drew data from international sources such as UNCTAD and World Bank. Given the existence of multiple variables, we have employed Sims (1980), VAR methodology. “The main difference in the VAR approach is that it is built on creating a complete dynamic specification of the series in a system of equations.” (Brandt and Williams,2007). The liberalization of medical services, defence and education sectors are prompting Indian firms to explore overseas merger and acquisitions to build both domestic power and global presence. Natural resource sectors and its foreign investments will surge in future. Indian Multi National Enterprises (MNEs) will continue to invest in developed nations, particularly now because they are affordable to invest after the global crisis. Three imperative regulatory developments have underpinned India as a large global outward investor. Keywords: Outward foreign direct investment, VAR methodology, Indian Multi National Enterprises, Macroeconomic Variables.
