consciousness, lucidity and openness which in turn enables a company's management achieve
its objectives in a way that maximizes profits. The given studyaims to empirically evaluate
the association of firm profitabilitywith various corporate governance mechanisms, for firms
traded on the NSE 500. The time period for our studyranges from 2013 to 2020 - using
Ordinary Least Squares as the method of estimation. We used two estimates of firm
profitability – Return on Assets (ROA) and Net Profit Margin (NPM). The analysis
established significant favourable association between ROA and independent directors’as a
proportion of the boards, total number of board meetings held, number of board committees
and audit committee presence.With respect to NPM, results showed that it was significantly
and favourably impacted by the proportion of non-executive directors on the boards, total
number of board meetings, total number of board committees prevalent in the company and
firm size. However, board size,audit committee presence and independent directors as a
proportion ofaudit committees indicated a negative impact on NPM.

India has the 2nd fastest growing travel market globally. Of this, the online travel market
is growing at the highest pace. In recent years, Indian Government has taken useful steps in this field.
They have introduced IRCTC, online portal for ticket purchasing. Also following the trends of other
countries India railway has installed several ATVM in the major stations to introduce digitalization
for buying local tickets. As digitalization is trying to implement everywhere, but due to different
factors some segment of people are not able to cop-up with this modernization. Also, to increase the
use of plastic money and e-wallet these digitalized systems should be adapted quickly. So, the
primary focus of this research is to evaluate the factors that influence/restrain the consumer behavior
for online ticket purchasing & using ATVM for ticket purchasing in India, thus in the following
sections we evaluate the Indian scenario related to it. To determine the factors, some market research
has been done. For that, questionnaire has been prepared and sample has been selected

United Nations Agenda 2030 for sustainable development provides seventeen sustainable
development goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. India also committed to SDGs and signed the
declaration to implement SDGs in the year 2015. India being home to one of the largest poor
population in the world, the success of Agenda 2030 to large extent depends upon how India
implements and achieves its SDGs targets. To this end, the Government of India has integrated
SDGs with the national policy framework to achieve the targets of SDGs. Now, the development
agenda of India primarily focus on five P’s- People, Planet, Peace, and Prosperity & Partnership.
The present study provides insights into the progress being made by India to achieve SDGs
through the review of various development programs. This paper maps various government
schemes and development programs being implemented to achieve SDGs in India. Further, the
paper also presents key bottlenecks and execution challenges to implement and achieve SDGs
targets in India.

Over the period from 1961 to 2018, a new Smooth Transition Autoregressive model was used to examine how the size of the government affected GDP growth in India and China. Economic growth and government size appear to have a strong and positive correlation. In other words, as these countries' governments expand, so does their economies. China's government size is unlikely to have a greater impact on economic growth than India's, based on the findings. Economic growth is positively and significantly affected by both China's and India's government sizes. China's government size had a larger effect, but India's was also highly significant. Finally, it makes no recommendations for reducing government spending. The issue is one of resource allocation. Crowding-out impacts and costs result from poor resource allocation.
