Antecedents of Online Banking Adoption: An Empirical .........
The banking sector is witnessing a fast paced change, as the global economy extends and progresses towards institutional and market completeness. One of the key reasons for such changes is, transcendental technology is transforming business processes into a technology oriented system. Self service banking channels like mobile banking and electronic banking have improved the reach and speed of service with less infrastructural needs. As the infrastructural need for online banking is minimal, it is a profitable proposition for both banks as well as the customers. Emerging economy like India is pushing for a cashless economy and thus, online transactions become inadvertent. But the biggest impediment for the banks is to overcome the psychological inertia of the common man who has a skeptical view towards the risks associated with online banking. Thus, it is important for banks to understand customer behavior for seamless adoption of online banking. The present study is an attempt to study the drivers of online banking adoption and offer a strategic roadmap for smooth transition from an offline channel to an online channel. Established models like TAM and TRI have been used for hypothesis development, and multivariate analysis has been used for testing the model. The findings suggest the importance of internet connectivity(IC), prior information(PI), perceived usefulness(PU), perceived ease of use(PEU), and security and privacy issues (SP) for the smooth adoption of e-banking. Policy makers and bank management should try to incorporate these features in service bundles, to garner a more positive response towards e-banking.

This paper makes an attempt to develop three sentiment indices for the Indian stock market and also study the interrelationship between the developed sentiment indices with the Indian Stock Market as proxied by the BSE Sensex. Also, an attempt is madefor incorporating sentiment into the equation of FII flows and the stock returns framework analysed by various researchers, under the feedback trading literature. The findings suggest that sentiment causes net FII flows through the Indian stock market. Also, the results suggest a bi-directional causality running from stock market returns and sentiments.
Human Resource Management: A Crucial Component ..........
Emerging research on food consumption patterns reflects, that dining out is a growing form of food tourism where meals are consumed not out of necessity but for pleasure, and the special events are part of the tourist experience as much as the food heritage itself. The growth of technology and other market forces of globalization have made the traditional cuisines more accessible worldwide.In various countries, food has been classified as per country norms or certain other elements in consideration. It is further stated that movement of tourists towards culinary experiences are the focal point of discussion in this review based paper, in order to project the food heritage of a destination along with its traditional culinary practices.However the ‘food heritage’ of India is as varied as its culture and people. In every region food changes in flavors and techniques of cooking, because it is influenced by its religion, customs and traditions which cannot be grouped like the food of the Western World. Therefore, this paper emphasizes on the food heritage of Northern India, along with the various traditional culinary practices.
