"Indian Financial Code’s Revised Draft", 2015Read Abstract >Close >Download PDFThe Revised Draft of the Indian Financial Code’s proposal to establish a Monetary Policy Committee with a majority of government nominees and no veto power to the Reserve Bank of India Governor have attracted a lot of attention.

"Analyzing the Potential of Increase in Acreage for Kinnow, Maize, Wood, Turmeric and Moong as per the Draft Agriculture Policy for Punjab-2013", 2014Read Abstract >Close >Download PDFIn view of agriculture sector crisis in Punjab, the importance of research in the realm of ecologically sound farming practices is foremost. While ecological sustainability is important, the economic viability for the farmer needs to be taken into account. In this context, Punjab Mandi Board commissioned Indian School of Business to undertake a research study analyzing the potential of increase in the production of selected five commodities as mentioned in the Agriculture Policy for Punjab-2013 (Draft) in terms of their existing markets and the potential to expand in the wake of proposed area expansion under alternate crops.  Given the nature and magnitude of crisis in the farm sector in the state, this research is a pioneering attempt to critically analyze the diversification strategy recommended as per the Draft Policy. 


ReportsRamachandran, Kavil.,Bhatnagar, Navneet. "Togetherness in Indian Family Businesses", 2014Thomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Abstract >Close >Download PDFFamily businesses are known to have unique competitive advantage over professionally managed firms. Habbershon and Williams (1999) suggest that this competitive advantage is derived from the ‘familiness’ of the business – i.e. a bundle of resources that are distinctive to the firm as a result of the owning family’s involvement. The controlling family’s shared beliefs, practices, policies, philosophies and doctrines are crucial family inputs that shape this ‘familiness’ of the firm. It is the higher degree of convergence on these counts, which enhances goal-congruence and trust among family members. Being ‘together’ is thus conventionally considered a tremendous source of strength for the family and the business. However, all across the world, societies have been undergoing changes. For instance, economic liberalisation followed by rapid expansion of the middle class and further integration with the global economy have been instrumental to a number of changes in India.
