Study Visit to the APMC Yard

Topic: Study Visit to the APMC Yard

Place of Study: APMC Yard – Baikampady Date: 16.12.2020

The students and faculty of the PG Department of Business Administration, AIET along with Mr Vivek Alva, Managing Trustee, AEF visited the APMC market yard in the early morning hours around 3.30 am to study the functioning in the wholesale market place. They found the APMC yard not well organized and lacking support mechanisms for the systematic segregation of produce. The available infrastructure (roads, water, washrooms, etc.) were not adequate to cater to the needs of the constituents. Hence, many traders were seen selling their goods from their vans and trucks.

APMC Yard Baikampady is predominantly a wholesalers and retailers market. Very few farmers were seen there. The trade begins at 3.00 am and closes around 9.00 am. The trucks carrying fruits and vegetables come from Bengaluru and surrounding districts.

The vehicles were parked haphazardly around as the parking slots were not properly allocated. The Mangalore central market was recently shifted to the APMC yard, Baikampady as the old Central Market was being demolished to build a new one. Sufficient and orderly parking space was not available causing disarray and leading to traffic jams and

delays in perishable and other goods reaching the consumers. The traders complained of suffocation in breathing as the marketplace was surrounded by chemical factories releasing effluents.

On return to the classroom, the students were asked to make a presentation on the topics given to them for observation and research.

The questions given to students for group presentations were:

  1. Your unique observations of the APMC yard during your visit
  2. Explain the entire system of how APMC functions. Suggest improvement.
  3. Explain the financial transactions that take place in the APMC • Suggest improvements.
  4. APMC from the perspective of farmers. Possibilities and limitations.
  5. Problems in the APMC. Suggest improvements.
  6. Comment on Fruit Trade in APMC. Suggest changes.
  7. Comment on Vegetable Trade in APMC. Suggest changes.

Emotional Intelligence

Resource Person: Dr Pragya Singh Bhardwaj, Assistant Professor, IIIT Allahabad
Date of the Event: 31.12.2020

She explained emotions are observable behaviours, expressed feelings such as happiness, sadness, anger, fear and shame. Emotional awareness and understanding are not taught in school. Employers today value Emotional Intelligence over Intelligence Quotient. Calm, emotionally satisfied and conflict-managed persons are preferred. She went on to explain the significance of EI. She said EI is much more than soft skills.

Employees should be treated as assets. According to research findings, she said 85% of employees feel that EI is not an inherent trait. The key elements of EI are self-awareness, empathy, self-regulation, internal motivation and social skills. Emotional literacy has advantages in hiring. She said social awareness is watching others in a natural state, while relationship management is the product of depth, quality and time. Conflict with others, not being able to manage anger, expectations and lack of social skills come in the way of relationship management.
