IIM wins contest

A four-member team from IIM-Ranchi won the Nasscom Education Summit Business Plan Competition 2014, which was organised at the Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre in Salt Lake, Calcutta, on July 18.

Rickshawale — as the IIM-R team comprising Kishore Vellanki, Shashadhar Boga, Saneeth Bangaru and Kanav Mishr was called — had submitted a plan to improve working conditions of rickshaw-pullers by providing them with electronic or motorised three-wheelers under government schemes.

“The competition was open to business schools from across the country and the participating teams were required to submit plans online,” Bangaru said, adding that 10 semi-finalists were short-listed on July 17 who vied for the title a day later.
