Shelly and Mohammad Firoz

The significance of intangible assets has increased gradually in the present scenario. In particular, industries still cannot accurately determine intellectual capital adopting the traditional accounting systems. The present study helps to examine the impact of IC on the financial efficiency of the power sector in India. The empirical data was captured from the companies? annual reports, primarily from the P&L account and balance sheets of top organizations in the power sector. The selection of companies has been done based on market capitalization. The VAIC method is used for calculating the IC of firms. OLS regression is applied to analyze the implications of intellectual capital on financial efficiency. The results indicate that the Indian power sector has a progressive impression on intellectual capital with financial efficiency.The study suggests that India?s power sector should invest in IC to improve its performance.

A Study on Customer Preference Towards Usage of Debit Card in Ahmedabad City
Isha Pradip Dave and Raaj Patel

Customers have started preferring paying through debit cards amongst all the other plastic money options, especially after demonetization. Debit cards have various other facilities?it can be used to withdraw cash from an ATM, purchase of goods and services at point of sale, and make payments for e-commerce online transactions, both inland and foreign. Yet, what is unknown is the pattern of debit card preferred by the customers and the reason they prefer a debit card over the other payment options. In this paper, the authors investigate the customer preference over the different payment options, the factors affecting debit card usage, the frequency, the charges and the reason for using debit cards post demonetization. The authors have also compared debit cards with credit cards and net banking on various parameters. Additionally, the study also attempts to understand the impact of the frequency of usage of debit card, the bank issuing the debit card, the number of transactions and the charges on the upgradation of the debit cards. This study is conducted on 125 respondents of Ahmedabad who use debit cards of four banks (based on their market capitalization)?ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, State Bank of India and Bank of Baroda?selected by means of non-probability convenience sampling. The results of the study state that customers prefer using debit card, and its accessibility will create a high competitive pressure on other payment options. The authors conclude that debit cards are increasingly being accepted and are extremely popular amongst the customers, but it is underutilized as not many offers given by the banks are highlighted or understood by the customers.

Urvashi Sharma and M Venkatesan

Personality and self-esteem, as described using the trait perspective of personality and Hierarchy of Needs Model by Abraham Maslow, play an instrumental role in individual happiness. The present study focuses on whether personality and self-esteem influence happiness of Delhi-NCR graduates or not, and also whether they differ on the variables based on gender, and whether they are currently studying or working. The present study is exploratory in nature which uses ex-post facto research design. A sample of 102 graduates of Delhi-NCR region in the age group of 20-25 years were identified for the study using purposive sampling method. The tools used were NEO-FFI scale, Rosenberg self-esteem scale and Subjective happiness scale. This study had applied both descriptive statistics and multivariate statistics for analyzing the data. The results revealed that self-esteem, extroversion, conscientiousness, and neuroticism were correlated with happiness. Also extroversion, conscientiousness, and self-esteem were positively correlated with happiness, whereas neuroticism was negatively associated with happiness. No gender differences were seen on all the three variables. But there was a significant difference between student and working young adults on extroversion, neuroticism, conscientiousness and happiness. These findings would help graduates to work on their personality and self-esteem to bring improvement in their happiness.

The HR Scorecard for Innovation in Higher Education
Vartika Abhinav Kanagat and Sunita Upendrakumar Sharma

Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have been struggling to get their names included in the elite list of top-ranked, high-graded and the most sought-after institutions in the world. Various agencies, such as NIRF, NAAC, NBA, etc., have included innovation as one of the decisive factors for higher education to get better ranks and/or grades. It is easier said than done as innovation cannot be guaranteed sans the recourse to a well-established system. Creating value in terms of quality and innovation is a challenge for higher education, albeit is also the need of the hour (Reda, 2017). Hence, the present study proposes the use of the HR scorecard to motivate and engage teaching staff of higher education to ensure continuous innovation. The HR scorecard, an extension of the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) as proposed by Kaplan and Norton (1992), helps measure human contribution in terms of employee engagement, employee commitment, employee satisfaction, competencies, and behaviors to achieve goals against defined strategy and vision/mission (Becker et al., 2001). The HR scorecard diagnoses workforce issues, monitors workforce indicators, probes workforce statistics, calculates financial results, and, if needed, tracks improvements (Walker and MacDonald, 2001). This paper tries to establish that the quality through innovation in higher educational institutions is possible through implementation of the HR scorecard. The paper is purely conceptual in nature, highlighting the relevance of the HR scorecard for innovation in higher education to ensure quality as sought by various stakeholders.
