This research aims to investigate the performance of an Eco-Village at Kanhapur, India which was designed by the Centre of Science for Villages. Research investigation was based on the occupants’ views on the physical condition of their housing units and neighborhood spaces. The study aided to determine the occupants’ housing satisfaction and thus evaluate the housing quality in the rural housing projects. The results revealed that, CSV, failed in achieving the residential satisfaction and the model of Eco-village collapsed. The housing project could offer them the shelter, but not the livable conditions on account of multiple reasons discussed in the paper. CSV never came back to the community to take the feedback on their living conditions and problems even after 10 years of occupancy. The study of this eco village led to the conclusion that POE can be utilized as a powerful tool to diagnose the residential satisfaction and thereby investigate the loopholes in the performance of housing projects.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2021-10-13T07:45:31+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Anamika Jiwane STUDENT PERCEPTION OF ONLINE LEARNING DURING COVID: FINDINGS FROM A INDIAN UNIVERSITY 2021-10-16T01:10:37+00:00 Vinti Agarwal Sibaram Khara <p>The pandemic threw student lives in disarray as they were forced to transition overnight to an online system of education for which they and the faculty were least prepared. In addition to the uncertainty relating to academic schedules, mode of examinations and evaluation patterns, students were forced to adapt to learning online without the facility of books, laboratories, libraries, computer systems and interactive classrooms. What was the perception of students regarding online learning as a result of this quick transition has been explored through a case of private university in Delhi-NCR region with an enrolment of 12000 students. The students were administered a survey with questions on the economic impact of the pandemic, ownership of digital devices, access to internet, and perception of online education. The 2463 student responses received indicated that perception of online learning was quite low even at the level of higher education despite the access to smartphones and internet. The factors scores relating to perception of quality of online education however were found to significantly vary across age, ownership of device and economic impact of covid.</p> 2021-10-14T10:14:03+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Vinti Agarwal, Sibaram Khara A VENDOR-BUYER SUPPLY CHAIN MODEL WITH IMPERFECT PRODUCTION UNDER TIME, PRICE AND PRODUCT RELIABILITY DEPENDENT DEMAND 2021-10-22T09:02:15+00:00 Biswarup Samanta Arpita Giri Bibhas C. Giri Kripasindhu Chaudhuri <p>This article investigates a single-vendor single-buyer supply chain model where the market demand depends on time as well as selling price and product reliability. The vendor's production rate is not constant but depends on the market demand. The vendor's production process is not perfectly reliable; it may produce some percentage of defective items during a production run. The vendor takes up a lot-for-lot policy for delivering the ordered quantity to the buyer who performs 100\% screening after receiving each lot. The average total profit of the integrated supply chain is derived and a numerical example is taken to validate the developed model. The optimal results of the proposed model are also discussed for some particular cases. Sensitivity analysis is performed to investigate the influence of key model-parameters on the optimal results.</p> 2021-10-22T09:02:14+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Biswarup Samanta, Arpita Giri, Bibhas C.
