In the contemporary knowledge world,we are becoming more rational and perhaps this is one of the main reasons today, research is becoming very significant not only in all the faculties of education but also in business,industry, politics and social sciences. University of Mumbai has given me an opportunity touse my imagination, analytical approach and do some research in various fields of management studies.

However one of the main objectivesof these bodies is welfare of societies and citizens of India. With this purpose I have selected

Questionnaire has been put in the appendix. I have collected the data for it fromvarious sectors/levels.

I have restricted myself to _____________ samples which has helped me to prepare diagrams, to interpret, to getfindings and accordingly to recommend.
