2. Inter

Average 23% taxes were implied previously.

Now, the tax rate system has got more transparent.

In GST system, when the return is filed on time than the compliance goes up but when the return is filed late than the compliance goes down.

In GST, the matching concept is followed where all transactions are matched and the report is prepared thereafter.

The government interference has became much less as the transactions are been verified or assessed internally with one another.

Blacklist is been prepared for the defaulters and it is been put on the website of GST.

In today’s multifarious, complex and vibrant business environment, management students are expected to be good at soft skills which include people skills, social skills, communication skills etc.  Soft skills have gained significance in the workplace environment.

No matter what profile one works for or what designation he/she has, presentation skills must be developed and honed overtime.

For MBA students Summer Trainings provide the first exposure to the real industry environment. They prepare the students in deciding upon which area they are going to specialize, and hence pave the way for their final placements. During the two months internship program, management interns work on challenging projects and play a key role in enhancing the business performance of organizations

Advertising plays a major role in our society today, everywhere we go we find a wide range of products being promoted on varied platforms of communication. The dominant brands /products of the present time have grown through wise utilization of media. Certain companies fade away with the passage of time, whereas some create a ‘brand’.  All advertisements essentially have one purpose - to manipulate the way we think in order to persuade us to do something that they promote. The catch is, when different companies try to target the same audience with almost similar products. This event was based on analyzing the advertisements of any three brands in the given sectors. Students had to present a comparative study of the three selected advertisements, each of a different brand. NCM students Ms Puja Sonar & Mr. Suresh Joshi secured the second position in this event.
