"Study on Supply Chain Operations of Small Industries in India"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "This study aimed to collect data from Indian small businesses. This study was awarded a grant of $800. Even though the initial budget was $5 per sample, the marketing research agencies that I contacted asked around $20 per survey. At that rate with the given grant amount, I could have only collected 40 samples and it wouldn’t have helped me to publish this study anywhere. So the grant amount was not utilized and the research project was temporarily shelved. I thank the research council for their support in this project."
