After the welcome message, Shri Raj Nehru, Founding-Vice Chancellor of the University addressed the gathering where he emphasized on the loopholes of the education system in India thus bringing in the reason for the establishment of such a University where vocational and skill education would be the prime objective. He also explained the 10-20-70 Rule. Where 10% is formal learning in classrooms, 20% is through Practical trainings and 70% is learning on the job.

Various industry persons from esteemed companies like Hero MotoCorp Ltd.. Maruti, HDFC etc. and various institutions like IILM Gurgaon, Amity University etc. also joined the meet.

In the end, Mr. Raj asked the audience to give their valuable advice on how they can improve their University. Some of the various suggestions were:

► There is a lot of emphasis given on numbers i.e. number of people registering for the skill courses. This should be avoided.
► The education system needs to be diverted towards vocational and skill learning rather than mere passing examinations.
► The students coming from various institutions are not job -ready, they still lack the required skills.
► The courses should have long term employability i.e. they should be structured in a manner that is relevant for the industry even after five years from now.
► A suggestion of a skill test also came up in which when a candidate shows his/her interest in joining the skill course, he/she would have to give a skill test, the results of which will indicate as to which course he/she should opt for.
► A suggestion of virtual courses also came up to facilitate the working class.

He even highlighted that the vision of the University was not just limited to India but it wanted to become a global mark. He also appreciated the hard work of his team members by pointed out that they did not work like government employees rather worked just like any other competitive corporate employees. He also mentioned Cooperation extended by IKLM, Gurgaon by providing students volunteers which helped greatly in making event a success. Lastly, he thanked all the industry people for contributing in the event and joining hands with the University.

Trip to camp “Mustang”_Manesar – Ice Breaking & team building activities.

No one can whistle a symphony. It takes an orchestra to play it.

Camping trips are great way to experience nature and knowing your peers, especially for the students of a new academic batch. Our first trip happened at Mustang Camp, Manesar on June 30, 2017 & the trip begun at 8:30. We all left IILM Gurugram campus with fellow batch mates, few staff members & our faculty, Vishal sir. We hardly knew our batch mates as the IILM PGDM session had just begun. This travelling of one hour from IILM, Gurugram to Manesar helped us know each other better.

We reached there at around 9:30 and after having refreshments we explored the place. We all were the new faces to each other as it was like a freshly made bouquet from various varieties of flowers. It was required for us to know all the good and bad fragrances of all our peers from many geographical differences. Thus many ice breaking activities were conducted at that camp. There were so many team building fun based activities like pottery making & designing, air gun shooting, trampoline, burma bridge, ground games (volleyball, cricket, badminton & football), which refreshed us inside out.

By 11:00 our trainer had arrived who kept us engaged in various team based tasks starting with games like scouts claps, fire the gun, and other such small activities to revive our childhood memories. Then he divided us in 4 teams of 12 members each and gave us various tasks. There were many activities that were conducted in which team and team members were the most integral part of the same. Activities such as Murder Mystery Solving, Catch the dragon tails, Balancing the hola hoops and slogan making were organized.

The trainer provided by IILM was well known about the team management skills and how those will get enhanced with various team building activities. He also taught us many lessons which will lead us to be a better person first and then a best manager in the corporate world.

Before the declaration of results we had sumptuous lunch amidst the pleasant weather. Soon after that the trainer and IILM faculty asked us to share our experiences.  Many students shared how they made new friends and also got to know their strengths and weaknesses through these activities. The day ended up with rain dance.  We left camp early as it started raining but it was really a delightful day which created memories that will last the lifetime.

The ultimate purpose of this trip was to imbibe the signature of team management in fresh IILM PGDM students. This made us known to each other so as to increase our comfort and confidence level. We strongly believe that today’s preparation leads to the tomorrow’s achievements.

I will end my experience by quoting that, “WE are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”

Thank you IILM for such a great experience.

Should utilities be privatized?

Public utility is defined as an organization which provides basic services like Water, Gas, Sanitation and Energy to people. Since investment in these sectors is very huge, in most of the countries, these sectors are handled by respective governments in either Monopolistic way (also called natural monopoly) or in an Oligopolistic way.

In recent times, there have been talks about the quality and proper distribution of these services and privatizations of these facilities are also being considered in many countries. While some countries have successfully implemented the privatization idea, others didn’t have a good experience with privatization and had to switch back to public sectors.

Utilities

The proponents of Privatization of Public utilities say that the shift from monopolistic approach to the competitive approach in private sector would help in improving the quality of services and also in enhancing the availability of these services to more people. Also, any government under debt could also benefit if private sector makes more profit by implementing cost reduction strategies.

Lack of political influence in private sector would also result in better operational efficiencies. Moreover, government protection of public utilities through subsidies, ceilings etc. would create a deadweight loss and eventually not satisfy the demand. A perfect example is the power industry in India where government protection leads to inefficiency and demand-supply mismatch which eventually leads to severe power outages and economic loss.

One of the major problems opponents argue is that private industry is profit oriented. Thus, the creation of Private monopolies in public utilities would result in a comparative price hike borne as higher charges by the consumers. Also, if the approach of a private is short-term, that would also create problems in long term. Thus, the need for regulation arises to maintain parity between producers and consumers.
