2. Metal and non-metal sorting

Nowadays solid waste management is a major concern. Solid waste has to be crushed, classified and sorted. Sorting is an important step for recycling and reuse of materials. Conventionally sorting techniques like magnetic sorting and eddy current sorting are only able to process some special kinds of ingredients of waste mixture roughly. This project comes with an idea of the sorting of metals & non-metals. It will be a revolution for industries in which proper management of materials is required for delivering quality assured products at cheaper prices. Sorting is done to separate out metal and non-metal materials differently. The whole setup is fully automated which is useful as well as eco-friendly.

8. Management of human resource and quality in material supply process in construction

Human Resource Management (HRM) is the process of managing people within an organization. In construction, HRM is primarily concerned with ensuring that a project has sufficient human resources, with the correct skill-sets and experience, for the project to be successfully completed. In most of the construction industry often experiences complexities in project completion schedule and cost due to no availability of a sufficient number of skilled labors and demand of the required construction material to carry out the planned work. Therefore the proper management of this single largest component can improve the productivity and cost efficiency of a project and help ensure its timely completion. One of the major problems in delaying construction projects is the poor quality of materials and resource management. In our project mainly focuses on how to identify the different components of human resources management and quality of the material supply in the construction industry.

15. Economic losses from hides and skins utilization: A case study of Sabon Gari and Zaria local government areas, Kaduna state

Abstract Economic losses from hides and skins utilization in Zaria municipal slaughter houses were investigated from the point of view of the raw skin availability and qualities that were recovered, and lost due to human consumption as ponmo. Using 2014 slaughter figures, the several grades analysis were carried out based on grading, and estimated values of the qualities; the graphical plots of the recovered and lost hides and skins, and the added-values were estimated. The relatively moderate recovery rate at Zango abattoir for cattle hides and Dogarawa slaughter slab could not justify optimized recovery and utilization for the domestic tanning and leather products industries. The added-value showed that there exist high potentials for diversification of the leather sectorial economy, however, the quality of the hides and the losses in production of goat and sheep skins are drawbacks to a sustainable domestic tanning industry.

17. Saviour.com

The critical rise in criminal activities and the increase of such cases at an alarming rate in the country seeks some concrete solutions. The people do find themselves helpless when they fall victim to such incidents. The police cannot be present the entire time at all places and hence something that could link the police with the victim before even the incident happens is critically needed. It can be proclaimed that the app ‘Saviour’ seeks to turn common people into citizen police and involve them into checking crimes, curbing unlawful activities and traffic violations. Our application facilitates the victim to send spontaneous alerts to the nearest police station in case he/she finds there is some sort of trouble or he/she finds someone involved in some malicious activity such as traffic violations, criminal activities, contravention of law on part of personnel in uniform, suggestions for improving policing and also the good work done by the force. The app caters for immediate assistance to the victim from the Police in case of falling in some trouble. This app serves for women safety while travel since it has an SOS button for accessing help in emergency situations. The major area of concern is women safety during travel, especially for those who are working.

19. Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013: A Study of perceptions of youth

The nation-wide outrage in India over the tragic gang rape incident of December 16, 2012 in New Delhi propelled the government to drive the issue of violence against women to the centre stage of political discourse. Consequently in April, 2013 the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act was passed, which is popularly known as the Anti-rape Act. It was perceived that this Act would serve as a deterrent by ensuring that the criminal justice system of the country protects women’s basic human rights and debars any future offenses against women. In the light of the amendments made to the criminal law in 2013, this study aims to understand its impact on gender issues and to examine the level of awareness regarding the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 2013 among the male and female youth of the urban areas of the state of Haryana. The objectives of the study are to find out various dimensions of crime against women in society and to examine the role of police in dealing with the offenses against women. The study has been undertaken in five districts of the state of Haryana namely Panipat, Karnal, Kurukshetra, Ambala, and Panchkula. Interviews and focused group discussions were conducted on male and female youth of all the five districts. The results indicated that appropriate and efficient laws alone are not sufficient to protect the right to live with dignity of women. Unless and until people are ready to fight for it, things will not change. To handle violence against women effectively society’s perception needs to be completely altered. However, to enable women to fight against discrimination and abuse it is necessary to empower them by ensuring for them appropriate and effective legal aid. Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013 is a successful step in this sense.
