Paper Title Analysis and Measurement of Service Quality in Tourism Sector using the SERVQUAL Model
Subject Category Tourism Studies
Abstract Service Quality has become a serious issue in the development of the tourism sector across the globe. It is the result of the fact that stakeholders of the industry still find it difficult to comprehend the socio-psychological drives of the visitors. In the present research, the authors have examined tourists’ perception of various Service Quality dimensions of Tourism Industry. The study adopted the SERVQUAL model in evaluating tourists’ perception about the service quality of Rajasthan tourism Industry. The results have revealed that tourists are not satisfied with service quality provided by the service providers in Rajasthan. The expectation mean was more than the perception mean. Therefore, it’s important for the tourism stakeholders of Rajasthan to take into account the expectations of the tourists so that Rajasthan as a destination does not face a decline.

Paper Title E-Filing of Income Tax Return: A Study on Awareness and satisfaction level of Tax Payers in Trichy City.
Subject Category Human Resources Management
Abstract E-filing of income tax refers to successful filing of Income Tax Returns through the internet. The e-governance has developed the concept of e-filing of Income Tax Returns through the internet. New technologies are emerging day by day with improved and fast speed in all the fields. Internet has changed the present scenario of working by reducing the work load from manual to sitting on chair. Thus, the Income Tax department has expedited the tax payers with defining the provisions to be followed, which can be filed and the procedure to file Income Tax returns for the benefit of income tax payers as well as the government. But with emerging technologies in new era one thing that is lacking is awareness and use of these technologies. Thus this paper deals with the awareness level of individual tax payers about e-filing, to measure the level of satisfaction of the respondents towards e-filing. For the purpose a field survey was conducted at Trichy city covering different level of employees. The data was collected through questionnaire and analyzed with the help of respective tests using SPSS.

Paper Title English language teaching: An Art
Subject Category Education Technology
Abstract The study on the mentioned topic will throw light on psychology of language learning. The present generation always demands something unique and different from their teachers. The research mainly focuses on making teaching of English language effective. No child fails to learn his mother tongue naturally except being deaf and dumb. Same is the case with other languages. A language teacher should focus on picking up the language acquisition simply by making a child listen attentively. The language heard by the child remains latent for sometimes in the brain till the child gradually understands it. So the next target for language teacher is to make them understand. It is very difficult for all second language learners to concentrate on the rules of grammar. English teachers should enrich that interest by various strategies where they can not only learn but also apply to their life. There are many such strategies for English language teachers which will be unfold in paper. This paper will also include ample examples of new teaching techniques for which the new generation strives for. ‘Teaching effectively’ is not everyone’s cup of tea. The study in the same will help such teachers to be that ‘DIFFERENT TEACHERS’ who make the ‘CHANGE’.

Subject Category Health care manaagement
Abstract Primary Dysmenorrhoea is a condition that has attracted attention among the stakeholders in education and health professions. Primary Dysmenorrhea is chronic cyclical pelvic pain associated with menstruation in the absence of an identifiable pathological condition. Dysmenorrhea is one of the most common complaints and gynaecological problem worldwide among young females. Many females use pain killers such as paracetamol and Non-steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) to treat primary dysmenorrhea. The aim of this study is to investigate effectiveness of physical exercises on primary dysmenorrhea among University female students. The study adopted a descriptive research approach. It involved fifty students who had enrolled for gym at the University and had participated in regular exercise. The control group involved 50 students who had not enrolled for gym. The data was collected through self-administered questionnaires. The findings revealed that majority of the students were aware that exercise treats the symptoms of dysmenorrhea. The study found out that majority of the students would consider exercise as an alternative therapy in treating the symptoms of dysmenorrhea. The study further revealed that the experimental group had late onset of menstruation and they took a longer time to menstruate as compared to controlled group. Overall the results of this study indicated that participating in exercise is a likely alternative approach to reduce the effects of primary dysmenorrhoea symptoms especially pain and improve the quality of life in young females.

Paper Title WORLDWIDE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF DIGITIZATION
Subject Category Commerce
Abstract Our analysis confirms that digitization has a material economic impact, which we assessed with three variables: growth in per capita GDP, job creation, and innovation. We analyzed 150 countries using a classical production function model to assess economic impact, controlling for a number of variables.12 We found that an increase in digitization of 10 percentage points triggers a 0.50 to 0.62 percent gain in per capita GDP. By contrast, previous studies that focused mainly on broadband penetration established that a 10 percentage point increase in broadband penetration contributes a gain in per capita GDP of just 0.16 to 0.25 percent.13 Thus the GDP impact from digitization is more than twice as large as the impact of broadband penetration. Additionally, the economic impact of digitization accelerates as countries transition to more advanced stages. Constrained digital economies realize a 0.5 percent increase in GDP per capita for every 10 percent increase in digitization, while advanced digital economies show a 0.62 percent increase in GDP per capita for every 10 percent digitization increase. Digitization also has a significant impact on job creation in the overall economy: an increase of 10 percent in digitization reduces a nation’s unemployment rate by 0.84 percent. From 2009 to 2010, digitization added an estimated 19 million jobs to the global economy, up from the estimated 18 million jobs added from 2007 to 2008. This is an especially critical finding for emerging markets, which will need to create hundreds of millions of jobs in the coming decade in order to ensure that a booming population of young people can contribute to their national economies. Finally, a 10-point increase in digitization results in a 6-point increase in the country’s score on the Global Innovation Index14 — a correlation suggesting that, as a country progresses in its digitization development, it also becomes more innovative.

Paper Title Internet security& Cybercrime: International network management paradox
Subject Category Computer Science
Abstract Reliability and scalability of real-time processing is a major need on any intrusion detection system. In addition to the reinforcement of security policies, development and use of antispam, antivirus software, firewalls as means to combat cyber crimes, there is a serious need for the development and implementation of reliable and scalable hardware data security controllers. (The objective of this study is to review the issues involved in internet security and cyber crime. Apparently this poses a paradox since the technological advances made in both software and hardware to increase internet security measures are also available to cyber criminals who immediately use them to counteract these measures. Another problem is infringement on privacy that has to be dealt with as stricter security measures and legislation are put into effect. Cyber crimes are briefly reviewed, and legislative and technological ways to combat them are presented.

Paper Title The Effectiveness and the Design Flexibility of PSO in the Framework of Electromagnetic Synthesis of Linear Arrays
Subject Category Electronics
Abstract In the domain of antenna arrays, several methods of synthesis exist such as stochastic and determinist method. Considering the diversity of aims searched for by users, we don't find a general method of synthesis which is applicable synthesis to all cases, but rather an important number of methods to every type of problem. This diversity of solutions can be exploited to constitute a useful tool for a general approach of synthesis of a multibeam array. Recently, evolutionary algorithms have been successfully applied to antenna array synthesis problems like null steering in phased arrays by positional perturbations, reconfigurable phase differentiated array design, the corrugated horn antenna design. Recently, adaptive particle swarm optimization algorithm is proposed for solving global numerical optimization problem. The result shows that the APSO can find a high quality solution even for a very high dimensional problem. In this paper, we are interest to present the adaptive swarm optimization method that will be applied to the synthesis of multibeam arrays. A big flexibility between features of the antennas array: amplitude and phase of feeding, ondulation domain, and secondary lobe level∞ is introduced.

Paper Title E-COMMERCE MARKETING & EFFECTS OF INTERNET MARKETING ON BUSINESS GROWTH IN INDIA
Subject Category Commerce
Abstract From a buzzword to a current-day reality, e-commerce in India has been experiencing remarkable growth, successfully changing the way people transact. People today can shop literally everywhere within minutes, be it their workstations or homes, and most importantly, at any time of the day at their leisure. The online market space in the country is burgeoning in terms of offerings ranging from travel, movies, hotel reservations and books to the likes of matrimonial services, electronic gadgets, fashion accessories and even groceries. India is home to 3,311 e-commerce hubs, 1,267 rural hubs, 391 export hubs and 2,217 import hubs1. To capitalise on the anticipated growth potential, a host of investors, including venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) firms are closely eyeing opportunities in e-commerce start-ups. At the same time, the sector is witnessing a swathe of consolidation owing to various mergers and acquisitions. The growing penetration of technology facilitators such as Internet connections, broadband and third generation (3G) services, laptops, smartphones, tablets and dongles, coupled with increasing acceptance of the idea of virtual shopping, is set to drive the e-commerce eco-system. The e-commerce marketing in India would surely witness a new world of digitalisation in the coming decade, with a host of start-ups emerging to compete with existing players in order to draw benefits from the new and existing markets. The absence of Government regulation aided with considerably lower initial costs required in setting up business in India makes this sector quite easy to enter. The presence of multifarious players in this sector is proven by the above said fact. Since this concept is still relatively new in India, there are ample opportunities and untapped potential which can be capitalized on. Though impediments such as general lack of confidence in online marketing and literacy and language barriers exist, yet the sector is slated to witness significant growth in the succeeding years.

Paper Title Curvelet Transform-Based Method to Enhance Brain Hemorrhage Segmentation
Subject Category
Abstract The curvelets are based on multiscale ridgelets combined with a spatial bandpass filtering operation. These bandpass filters are set so that the curvelet length and width at fine scale obey the scaling rule width ≈ length2. A two-dimensional wavelet transform is used to isolate the image at different scales and the spatial partitioning is used to break each scale into blocks. Large-size blocks are used to partition the large scale wavelet transform components and small size blocks are used to partition the small scale components. Finally, the ridgelet transform [12] is applied to each block. In this way, the image edges at a certain scale can be represented efficiently by the ridgelet transform because the image edges are almost like straight lines at that scale. Thus, the curvelet transform is an extension of the ridgelet transform to detect curved edges effectively. the performance of proposed denoising approach is compared with total variation method and three different curvelet-based methods namely USFFT_Clet, WRAP_Clet, and cycle spinning-based CS_Clet. The performance evaluation is focused to improve the visibility and detectability of hemorrhage from brain CT images. The suggested approach utilizes the features of both TV method and curvelet transform-based method. It reduces the staircase effect induced by TV method and visual distortion induced by curvelet transform in the homogeneous region of the image.

Paper Title ASSESSMENT OF MECHANICAL VIBRATIONS IN THE FIELD OF ENGINEERING
Subject Category Engineering
Abstract Importance of mechanical vibrations in the field of engineering is all too well known. Most engineers are fairly knowledgeable about the plenty of disadvantages vibrations pose. However, there are a few merits of mechanical vibrations as well. This is indeed stirring up engineers worldwide to concentrate their efforts to make advantages use of vibrations, while curtailing its disadvantages. Vibration is commonly used when density separation techniques are employed. Vibrating sieves are widely used in industry. One may prefer to have one’s cell phone in a vibrating mode. Vibration is an integral and indispensable part of almost all reciprocating and rotating machinery. When vibration is undesirable, like in the case of an old engine or as in the case of an earthquake, one has to devise ways of controlling it or eliminating it completely if possible. Vibration can be controlled only when the engineer acquires complete knowledge of its source and cause. Engineering instrumentation and measurement is the key to controlling mechanical vibrations.

Paper Title GST: A Revolutionary Indirect Tax Reform in India
Subject Category commerce
Abstract GST is a transformational and revolutionary tax reform. It is a new system that has replaced the old system. Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax which is introduced in India on 1 July 2017 and is applicable throughout India which replaced multiple cascading taxes levied by the central and state governments. GST (Goods & Services Tax) is a single unified indirect tax system aims at uniting India’s complex taxation structure to a ‘One Nation- One Tax’ regime. The introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a very significant step in the field of indirect tax reforms in India. GST will be beneficial for traders, consumers, government and whole economy. GST would make Indian products competitive in the domestic and international markets. Studies show that this would have a boosting impact on economic growth. From the consumer point of view, the major advantage would be in terms of a reduction in prices due to the overall tax burden on goods. GST, because of its transparent and online system, would be easier to administer. As a coin have both sides same GST have some limitations but these limitations can be easily managed by proper administration of the system. GST is a new term for the business community so it is the responsibility of Government to organize awareness and training programs for business community so that they can easily understand the concept but also able to implement the same.

Paper Title A Risk Assessment-Based Approach To Groundwater Protection Management System & Sustainable Development
Subject Category Environmental Engineering
Abstract The primary motivation for the study of groundwater has traditionally been its importance as a source. Groundwater is less important in industrial usage, but it provides a significant percentage of the supply for domestic use, both rural and urban, and for irrigation. If groundwater is to continue to play an important role in the development of the world's water resources potential, then it will have to be protected against the increasing threat of subsurface contamination. Groundwater protection management must be dealt with simultaneously with management plan. Reconnaissance, investigations, pilot studies, planning and evaluation of usable groundwater resources should always precede their abstraction. Groundwater resources vary in their quality and vulnerability and possess different environmental and socio-economic values on regional and local scales. Groundwater protection strategy should always be co-ordinate with the protection of the remaining components of the hydrologic cycle, land-use planning and abstraction of other natural resources. Groundwater protection policy and strategy should be based on the concept that prevention of pollution is always less expensive than aquifer rehabilitation - a costly, long term and technically demanding task. Groundwater protection is not an isolated action but a long-term and multidimensional programme. A Groundwater Protection Scheme provides guidelines for the planning and licensing authorities in carrying out their functions, and a framework to assist in decision-making on the location, nature and control of developments and activities in order to protect groundwater. Use of a scheme will help to ensure that within the planning and licensing processes due regard is taken of the need to maintain the beneficial use of groundwater. A Groundwater Protection Scheme aims to maintain the quantity and quality of groundwater, and in some cases improve it, by applying a risk assessment-based approach to groundwater protection and sustainable development. In this way it helps public authorities to meet their responsibility to protect groundwater. This would include planning authorities which have a major function in the development and control of land use and the built environment.

Paper Title FORMULATION OF A MICROCRACK INITIATION CRITERION BASED ON COARSE AGGREGATE PARTICLES AND THE MORTAR MATRIX
Subject Category Geomechanics & Construction Engineering
Abstract Many macroscopic models based on damage and plasticity theories have been proposed and implemented in commercial FE codes with varying degrees of success however, as mentioned earlier, they often use parameters that are difficult to determine and thus far no one model has been able to fully simulate all aspects of the complex behaviour of concrete. Therefore the development of an accurate and robust constitutive model remains a challenge. a microcrack initiation criterion is proposed employing the exterior point Eshelby solution which captures tensile stress concentrations in the vicinity of the matrix-inclusion boundary. Microcracks can therefore be assumed to initiate in the interfacial transition between coarse aggregate particles and mortar. Numerical predictions compared against experimental results are presented for a range of uniaxial, biaxial and triaxial simulations in order to assess the performance of the proposed model at a constitutive level. In this paper, details of the formulation of a microcrack initiation criterion based on the assumption that microcracks are initiated in the interfacial transition zone between coarse aggregate particles and the mortar matrix are presented. A brief discussion of the damage criteria employed in several other micromechanical constitutive models is first presented followed by the formulation of the criterion for the initiation and evolution of microcracking which makes use of the exterior point Eshel by solution. Aspects regarding the geometrical characterization of the morphology of the crack surface are also addressed. Finally, the performance of the proposed constitutive model is assessed in a set of uniaxial, biaxial and triaxial simulations.
