  • A Study on Customers' Perception towards E-Wallets in Ahmedabad City

    The payment industry has undergone a drastic shift from barter system to E- wallets. Customers globally are not very comfortable with transferring money through the internet, especially the older generations. Digital wallets give them the sense of security by acting as a wall between the bank and the vendor. Since digital wallets have a limit to the cash that they can hold, any loss—in the event of a security breach—is limited.

    Further, for all the stakeholders a wallet leaves a money trail that helps in solving disputes. . . . . . . .Read more.

[Abstract]
Technology is unfolding on many fronts. Innovation in the IT Industry is said to happen when some new attributes are added to the existing technology. IT companies are recognizing the need and importance of innovation and growth in the economy. The development in the field of technology is fueling the growth of all other industries. The emerging innovation in the technology is actually disrupting the business functions and process. This disruption in the technology is bringing the growth curve down of the companies. A big challenge to accept and adopt this disruption is faced by the industry. Due to the rapid change in the digital arena some of the companies are facing it as a big time challenge to cope with the change.

There are many factors on which employee retention is depended and identifying this factor at the right time and implementing it rightly is much more crucial. As rightly said that every story has two sides, the same way the other side of employee retention is employee turnover, which means the total number of employees parting every year with the organization. It can be voluntary leaving the organization or Involuntary parting with the organization. There are different policies that encourage the employees to stay with their organization for a longer period of time. Retaining employees does not mean that the organization should or need to retain each and every employee rather it means to retain those employees who have proved to be the best employees for the organization, for example, employees who are good performers, loyal to company rules and policies, contributing towards the growth of the company etc.

As said by David Sirota that “You can't expect people to be committed, to be loyal to an organization, to be engaged in an organization, or to want to stay in an organization if the company doesn't care about them.”

[Abstract]
Ease of doing transactions is becoming an inevitable part of any service provider irrespective of private, government or semigovernment players for its smooth operation. Digitization of property/house tax collection has been a major challenge for Government of Jharkhand since its inception in the year 2000. The current paper sheds insight on the successful operation of Sparrow SoftechPvt. Ltd. in the state of Jharkhand along with challenges and issues faced by them during initial set up and at present. The unspoken expectation of ensuring safety and security of data always existed. However major challenge for SSPL was handling online payments through Debit/Credit Card along with other offline modes and its real-time reconciliation along with integration – searching, locating properties and generating reports accordingly.

The paper also attempts to discuss the various impediments like automatic calculation of the property tax, arrears calculation and copy of last payment receipt etc. Gigantic and continuously changing numbers of taxpayers due to the amalgamation of existing properties into single property and creation of new properties from exiting was another set of issues with incessant updating of data and information along with its linkage with the payment system. The paper also discusses various operational issues like name transfer of the property owner and its verification, modification of correspondence details and more importantly communicating the client about due dates and non-payment of their property/house tax, which is the part of the vision of Government for outsourcing the entire digitization to SPPL.
