FORE has always worked vigorously to create socially responsible leaders and get involved in CSR activities, and this agreement will further cement the bond between two reputed organizations focused on social goals. Signed by Dr. Jitendra K.

Now there are some standard methods for SIA.” Making an inspiring presentation, he shared details of different steps of SIA.


Talking about success / failure analysis, Dr. Das claimed that it can be divided into economic cost-benefit analysis, social cost-benefit analysis, and psychological benefit perception analysis.
