GERMANIC AND ROMANCE STUDIES

Major Activities In recent times, the Department has successfully run the restructured M.A. Programmes in French, German and Hispanic Studies and introduced the M.A. programme in Italian Studies. It has completely restructured the M.Phil./Ph.D. programmes in line with the approach of the restructured M.A. programmes. Having initially enlarged its scope of study from language teaching to the study of literature, history and translation, the Department has moved on to include in its focus the language of the media and the development of philosophical ideas. The focus has not only shifted to cultural studies but has also been given a European dimension rather than being limited to individual countries. Thus, allowing the students to acquire a more global view, sensitising them to historical and philosophical developments that have gone into the making of Europe and also providing a deeper understanding of other culture whose profiles have been largely shaped through developments sparked off in Europe. The four M.A. and M.Phil./Ph.D. programmes have thus been designed with a multicultural approach and a common structure. Our programme provides a more meaningful and attractive agenda of study and can encourage research in badly neglected areas of cultural studies, media, oral history, interface of literature and other disciplines like sociology, history philosophy and technology. In the present context of globalisation and increasing interaction with as well as dependence on the world outside, the University should recognise the importance of learing foreign languages and studying other societies and cultures.

FACULTY OF SCIENCE AGROCHEMICAL AND PEST MANAGEMENT

Major Activities Brief history and nature of course A Master of Science (M.Sc.) course in Agrochemicals and Pest Management was started by the University of Delhi under its Faculty of Science in the academic session 1991-1992. This is a unique course in the country which caters to the special requirements of the Pesticides and Agrochemical Industry as borned out by the fact that most of the students of this course are absorbed by them. It is also a logical extension of the B.Sc. course being taught in a constituent College of the University and helps in the fulfilment of aspirations of students for higher study. The Departments of Chemistry, Zoology and Botany of the University of Delhi, along with experts in Agriculture, Agrochemicals, Pesticides both from academia and industry, were involved in the formulation of this interdisciplinary course. It was one of the few courses which preceded the establishment of the Department and is being run by the Faculty of Science under the supervision of a Co-ordinator. The course covers a broad spectrum of areas normally covered in parts in the Departments of Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Biochemistry, Entomology and Agrochemicals. The main focus is on Agrochemicals, their interaction with animals and plants and protection of crops, the analytical techniques and separation methods required for their detection and identification, the biology of insect pests, the mode of action of pesticides, their impact and interaction with ecosystems, toxic effects on the environment and humans and integrated pest management. Input from diverse disciplines towards conceptual development The course content offers excellent opportunities for in-depth interaction between the university community and the agrochemical industry. Exploratory surveys have provided information that there is enough demand for these post-graduate students in the pesticide and agrochemical industries. The teachers have been drawn from diverse disciplines which make it a strong collaborative effort. Twenty seven teachers who are actively participating in the teaching programme come from different departments of the University namely Chemistry, Zoology, Botany and V.P. Chest Institute and from four different colleges. Experts from Indian 87

Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), Government Institutions and Industries are also participating in the teaching programme. Opportunity for summer training and Interaction with industries The course is of two years duration and 17 students are admitted each year in M.Sc (Part I) course. Twelve batches have already passed out and most of the students have got good jobs in different industries while some have opted for higher studies in the University Departments and other institutions such as IARI. Immediately after the M.Sc. Final examinations, the students join different industries in summer for two months to get some work experience. This gives them exposure to the requirements of the industry and the industry in turn gets a chance to evaluate the trainees for future positions with them. This forms an important part of the course. Uniqueness of the course It is noteworthy that this is a first ever venture of its kind by a Non-agricultural University in the country. Presently the Department neither has its own building, proper classrooms or laboratories nor any permanent faculty and supporting staff. Initially the Department was housed in two small rooms of the University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) building and later shifted to the PL-480 Block of the Chemistry Department in October, 1996. Sustained growth Since its inception, inspite of lot of difficulties, the Department has maintained steady progress due to its determined efforts. Now the Department has two reasonably equipped functional laboratories and a small lecture room A computer laboratory was established with three computers and printers and it started functioning in the academic session 2000-2001 as per requirements of the revised syllabus. The Department has recently installed a GC machine to carry out experiments such as pesticide residue analysis. Future perspectives With the encouragement and full support from the University and UGC, this Department will not only grow and make significant contributions to the interaction between the University and Industry by providing highly trained manpower in the field, but will also result in establishment of an interdisciplinary Department of Agrochemical and Pest Management with its characteristic holistic approach towards environment sustainability. 88

ANTHROPOLOGY

Major Activities The Department of Anthropology, University, impact teaching and research in three branches of anthropology, viz. physical anthropology, social anthropology, and archaeological anthropology. Each of these disciplines has its own set of specializations, but the field that unites all these branches of anthropology is ecology. The thrust area of the department is therefore ecology, and each of the branches (or sub-branches) looks at the ecosystem from its own perspective. From its beginning, anthropology has submitted that human biology and society are greatly influenced by the habitat in which people live. We cannot treat the environment as a passive factor; rather we have to look at the ways in which the environmental factors exercise their impact on the people and their cultures. Furthermore, it is well known now that the relationship between human beings and the environment is deteriorating with the passage of time, and unless we know that factors, which are causing it, we shall not be able to bring about any positive changes. Keeping the thrust area of ecology, the department has undertaken several studies in the Himalayas, the deserts of Rajasthan, the coastal areas of Gujarat and Orissa. Each year the students of anthropology undertake fieldworks in different parts of India and the department advises them to look at different institutions and populations and societies, the department faculty members are involved in editing a journal, titled the Journal of Human Ecology, and several other Special Issues that are concerned with ecology. The department has undertaken a lead role in studies pertaining to a variety of eco-niches and the ways in which people manage their resources. The concepts of sustainable development and culturally rooted change have been critically examined by studies taken up by the Department. The department scholars also study the genetic changes that occur with environmental degradation. We intend to further strengthen the domain of human ecology and report our findings. The department has a number of laboratories, like those of serology, biochemical and molecular genetics, cytogenetics dermatoglyphics, physiology, growth and development. Recently a part of the biochemical genetic laboratory is converted into molecular genetic. Both in physical anthropology and archaeology work has been done on paleanthropology and paleademography. Medical anthropology is another important specialization of the department, where both the biological and cultural contexts of health and illness have been explored. 89 The strength and weakness of indigenous medical system is another area of research. In physical anthropology, work has been done on genetics, physiology, growth and development, and forensic anthropology. However, the common unifying principle in all of them is that of ecology.

EDUCATION

Major Activities The Department welcome chief guest, Professor Deepak Nayyar, ViceChancellor and educator, deliver the 56th Foundation Day Address on "Globalization and Education". On issues related to Globalization, Professor Nayyar is the best-known authority in India. He has written and spoken extensively on this subject. I do, like all of you, look forward to listening to Professor Nayyar's exposition on this subject today. I welcome Professor Deepak Nayyar. I welcome our alumni, our former faculty and our professional peers, whose presence has always been a source of inspiration and encouragement of the CIE community. The 56th year of CIE's foundation has been remarkable in many ways. There have been some achievements and there are indeed some low points. 205

CIE had gone through an elaborate process of review and reflection in preparation for the l0th Plan visiting team from the UGC. We had identified restoration of building, creation of new space and procuring new equipment as our priority for the 10th plan, for which we had drawn out an ambitious proposal of more than Rupees One crore. What we actually got from the UGC, however, was a modest Rupees Seven Lakhs for books and equipment. Our efforts, thus, did not elicit the desired response from the UGC Visiting Team; but, the very process of developing the proposal was a useful learning experience for us. However, the visit of the l0th Plan Visiting Team was one of our low points this year. This was However more than compensated by the help and assistance that we received from the University. The University has been sensitive to our special needs and has been generous with us in the following ways: Through the efforts of the University, the Government of Delhi have earmarked during the I0 plan an amount of about Rupees 25 crores for restoration of heritage buildings of the University of Delhi. I am happy to report that as a part of this scheme, earlier this week, a Committee headed by the Vice-Chancellor recommended to the Government of Delhi a grant of Rupees l.03 crores for restoration and renovation of the main building of the CIE. This grant will go a long way towards the much-needed structural restoration that the CIE building needs. The University is going to construct an academic and research complex an the plot of land adjacent to the CIE campus, opposite the Khalsa College. Utilizing the building grant that the Department of Education received from the Government of India under the IASE-MACESE scheme, and with additional assistance from the University, it is proposed that one entire floor in this complex with a total area of about 12,000 sq. feet will be made available to the Department of Education. This will meet most of our requirement for more space for classrooms, resource room, South Asia Documentation Centre, media lab, audio-visual room, faculty offices and a large seminar room. There are some major items of civil work that assume priority which are still left unaddressed. Renovation of the building of the CIE Experimental Basic School is one such. Another priority is to move the Boys' Hostel from its present makeshift accommodation to a paper building. The staff quarters for Class IV employees were demolished a couple of year back, having been declared unsafe far habitation. Reconstructing these staff quarters is another area of priority. We were hoping to address these needs through UGC's 10th Plan 206

grants. We will now have to approach the University with a request to address these unfulfilled needs. This year again, CIE received a generous one-time grant of Rupees Thirtyseven lakhs from the University of Delhi. We utilized most of this grant for equipment. We have been able to provide computer work stations to all members of our faculty. Making use of the recently established University computer network, we have been able to provide computer connectivity to members of our faculty, our research scholars; our students and to our library and resource centre. This, we hope, will usher in a new era of professional interaction among the CIE community. The Institute of Advanced Study in Education (IASE) of CIE has initiated an "On-Line Project" with the objective of building capacity among our faculty to do professional interactions and academic transactions on-line. Under this initiative, a CIE web-site has been created mainly through the efforts of our students. Under their collaborative agreement with the University of Delhi, the Commonwealth of Learning, Vancouver, made available to CIE a consultant from South Africa to help us set up the "On-Line Project". We also hope that the CIE website will be able to provide a platform for practitioners in school education to interact and engage in collective reflection. The Maulana Azad Centre for Elementary and Social Education (MACESE) is also in the process of setting up a web-site. The Psycho-lab of CIE was refurbished using the proceeds we received from CARE-India for an evaluation study on teacher development for alternative schooling that Dr. Namita Ranganathan and Dr. Nirupama Jaimini did on behalf of CIE. Under the auspices of the Maulana Azad Centre for Elementary and Social Education (MACES.E) of CIE, Dr. Alka Behari completed the national synthesis of the evaluation of alternative school component of the District Primary Education Programme of the Government of India in seven states. I am proud to report that several of our teachers in the CIE Experimental Basic School have -been participating as Resource Persons in the current exercise undertaken by the SCERT, Delhi, of developing new textbooks for elementary schools. They bring back valuable insights, which I hope will enable them to be reflective practitioners as well as teacher -researchers.

This year witnessed a major exercise in course revision of several teaching methodology courses of the B.Ed. programme. This was a consequence of an intense consultative process involving several members of CIE Faculty as well as a few teachers of lady Irwin College and Maharshi Valmiki College of Education. In addition, a few new optional courses were developed as a part of the B.Ed. and the M.Ed. programmes. We view this as merely a precursor of a major course transformation exercise in B.Ed., which we hope to initiate in 2004 under the auspices of the IASF. We are at present going through a long-drawn and a somewhat painful exercise of reviewing the statutory provisions, organizational structures and coordination arrangements for IASE and MACESE, which are units within the Department of Education for R and D, Training, Advocacy and Social Action. The Departmental Staff Council is at present engaged in very intense, but remarkably mature, deliberations on the vision and the alternative models of organization of these units. We are hopeful that these deliberations will help us achieve greater clarity of purpose and, more important, greater cohesiveness as a vibrant professional community, confident and at the same time self critical. CIE's achievements are a consequence of our collective efforts. The credit for these must be shared with our students, our colleagues in the non-teaching staff and the faculty. We must also appreciate the inputs given by the teachers of the CIE Experimental Basic School. CIE has been playing an increasingly important role in the corporate life of the University of Delhi. Students of CIE won some important prizes in the University Flower Show last March,. Several members of CIE faculty have been serving the. University, holding important offices being members of various committees and board and managing institutions like Gandhi Bhavan, hostels and guesthouses. One of our esteemed senior colleagues, Professor Najma Siddiqi retired this year concluding a long and distinguished career. Shri K.L.Wadhwa and Shri Banarasi Das also retired this year. The CIE community fondly remembers the poetic genius in Shri Banarasi. We wish Professor Siddiqi, Shri Wadhwa and Shri Banarasi good heath, long life, peace and happiness. We lost two distinguished former Deans of CIE this year. Professor E.A. Pires and Professor Suniti Dutt passed away this year. Both Professor Pires as well as Professor Dutt (Suniti Di as she was fondly called) had made a lasting imprint in C1E's institutional memory, and had been architects of many of CIE's 208

institutional practices. Both of them had been inspiring teachers and great institution builders. We in CIE remember them with gratitude and pay homage to their memory. Shri Ram Shreshth Singh Sinha, former Head Master of the CIE Experimental Basic School also passed away this year. His contributions to the Basic School are remembered with appreciation and gratitude. We pay homage to his memory. It would be no exaggeration to say that CIE is at present at a take-off stage. It is the larges and perhaps the best University Department of Education in the country. CIE has an important leadership role to play. CIE has the finest set of scholars in the field on its faculty, with diverse specializations and experience. CIE runs what is considered to be the best teacher education programmes, both at the secondary and at the elementary school levels. In spite of all these achievements, CIE has several avenues where there is scope for further improvement. Research is surely one of these. We also need to transform our postgraduate and pre-doctoral programmes. During the past three years, our aim had mostly been in developing infrastructure and establishing new facilities. Now, we must turn our attention to our academic programmes and undertaken an extensive exercise of course transformation. We also must bring about greater coherence in our research programmes, identify certain thematic foci and develop selected thrust areas. Higher Education could well be one additional thrust area that we may like to invest our time in. CIE must now focus a little more on its role as the Faculty of Education of the University of Delhi, in the sense that we need to set aside some of our time and energy for nurturance of the education departments in the colleges of the University. We must work towards greater collaboration with the colleges in research and development. The original mandate of CIE was to be a pace-setting institution of teacher education and educational research. We need to rediscover our leadership role. For this purpose, we may have to rationalize the faculty time deployment for our teacher education programme, perhaps by reducing the intake of student teachers, and increasingly concentrate on quality in our professional and academic programmes and in research. We, in the CIE community know that we have no time to rest on our oars basking in the glory of our own hoary past, for we have indeed miles to go. 209

MAULANA AZAD CENTRE FOR ELEMENTARY AND SOCIAL EDUCATION (MACESE)

Major Activities The year 2002-2003 has been a year of reflections on the activities undertaken by MACESE in the past decade as well as a year of consolidation of the rnany tasks undertaken by MACESE. Many of the research projects undertaken by individual faculty rnembers and evaluation studies of public programmes have been brought to a close, awaiting publication and dissemination. Research areas pursued include a longitudinal. study of beginning primary school teachers, teacher support through methodology and material developrnent in mathematics, pattern and intervention for working children, irnpact studies of pedagogical interventions under the DPEP. The Resource Support for practitioners in Elementary Education continues to serve as a nodal resource centre for practitioners in elementary education and is a major initiative in establishing a national level resource centre for elementary education. The centre houses a library consisting of books, journals, multimedia educational materials and children's literatue. In addition, the library includes resources developed and being developed by RSPEE, including anthologies of readings for student-teachers and Hindi translations of teacher education curriculum materials. More recently the RSPEE has developed a training film on the teaching of English as a second. language which has been a culmination of a year long process of the English language learning programme at the ClE 213

Experimental Basic School. The film is titled A for Magarmach and is accompanied by a text module on the theoretical frames, critical reflections on existing practices and a process documentation of the programme followed in ihe Basic school. The RSPEE has launched a Web based Community Portal for Elementary Education under the domain name beled.net and macese.ac.in. The foundation of this community has been laid on the unique structure of the BEIED programme. Over the years the community has been successful in creating a space for new pedagogic approaches and their implementations alongwith generating reflective thought and a spirit ot questioning and sensitivity amongst teacher educators, teacher trainees and teacher practitioners. This web-portal will integrate the various functional aspects of the community and provide a one point resource based for furthering the process set in motion by the programme. Apart from providing a facilily for both up-to-date and archived information, a use-driven, peer-reviewed architecture of the web-portal will ensure authenticity, quality and currency of the content being contributed by the members of the community. In the year 2003-2004, MACESE extended an invitation for research proposals in nareas ol' elementary and social education from amongst the larger faculty of CIE, the BEIEd faculty of undergraduates colleges and the teaching faculty of the CIE Experimental Basic School.. Given the context and the network of practitioners engaged with elementary education, established by MACESE over the last decade, faculty members were invited to promote the institutional mandate of MACESE with the objective to work collaboratively towards taking the agenda of research in a more concerted rnanner. In an endeavour to articulate a perspective plan and programmatic directions for MACESE for the tenth five-year plan (2003-2007), a national level consultation rneeting was held in April 2003. Significant members of the education community, including those who helped create MACESE as well as members who have stood by with MACESE in its various endeavours were invited. The daylong meeting addressed the various challenges for a University-based centre for elementary and social education, the systemic issues of linking elementary education with higher education and articulating responsibility and perspective of social education for the future agenda of MACESE. The consultation meeting began with reflections on MACESE and its programmes, an articulation of future possibilities by the UGC Chairperson, the NCTE; Chairperson, the Dean faculty 214

of Education and the Vice Chancellor of the University of Delhi. This was followed by discussions and critical reflections.Drawing upon the enriched discussions a proposal tor the tenth five-year plan has been drawn up for MACESE.

ECONOMICS

Major Activities Members of the Department of Economics continued to apply the latest analytical techniques, both theoretical and quantitative, to teaching and research. The department had introduced a new syllabus four years ago. It brought in a wide variety of courses in tune with changes worldwide. Considerable effort and faculty time went in consolidating the gains and removing the shortcomings from teaching of these new courses. The focus of research also widened to take into new developments. Some of the new areas covered are law and economics, industrial organisation, economics of discrimination, economics of regulation, economics of technological change and intellectual property rights, and economics of climate change. Efforts were also made to apply rigorous economic theory to explain practical problems like process of price formation in wheat markets. The students of the department under the guidance of a faculty member organised a very successful placement programme. This programme brought in eminent people to talk to students about policy issues with a wider perspective. The programme was able to place a significant number of students to well paying jobs with reputed companies. M.Phil./Ph.D. degrees awarded Ph.D. M.Phil. 01 04 235

Seminars/Conferences held Workshop on "Productivity And Technical Efficiency: Recent Development In Theory And Applications" The CDE and the ICICI Research Centre jointly organized a Workshop on "Productivity and Technical Efficiency: Recent Development in Theory and Applications" at the Department of Economics, Delhi School of Economics from 6th to 9th January 2003. Leading international experts, Professor K. L. Krishna (formerly of Delhi School of Economics and currently with ICRIER), Professor Subhash C. Ray (University of Connecticut, Storrs, U.S.A), Professor Subal C. Kumbhakar (State University of New York, Binghamton) and Professor Bishwanath Goldar (Institute of Economic Growth) gave lectures on both micro and macro aspects of productivity. The Workshop covered recent developments in the theory and empirical measurement of productivity growth and technical efficiency. Over 100 participants including researchers, Ph.D. students and faculty members from various institutions all over India attended the workshop. Hands-on-training was given to all the participants on latest software programmes for Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). A workshop on grain policy was held at the Delhi School of Economics in the winter of 2003, to provide a forum for a critical discussion of the recent report of the "High Level Committee on Long-Term Grain Policy." Organized by Dr. J.V. Meenakshi and Dr. Jean Dreze, participants at the workshop included academics, activists, and policy makers, including a delegation from the Food Ministry. While there was wide appreciation of the work of the committee, participants debated a wide range of recommendations of the Report, especially the reform of the Public Distribution System (PDS), in terms of its implications for targeting, and the financial viability of fair price shops. There was also discussion on questions of governance, and the practicality of a decentralized PDS. Other issues included the use of the Minimum Support Prices as an instrument for ensuring price stability, the feasibility of alternative farm support mechanisms, the role of the Food Corporation of India, and international trade in the new context. On Saturday, 6th April, 2002, CDE in co-ordination with Delhi School of Economics organized a seminar on "Macroeconometric Modelling for India

Research Projects Poverty and Environmental Degradation in India : An Exploratory Study Principal Investigators : Shreekant Gupta (CDE), Urvashi Narain (RFF), Klaas van_'t Veld (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI) 238

Funded by : Resources for the Future, Washington D.C. This research project is being implemented jointly by researchers at Resources for the Future (RFF), a Washington DC based research institute, University of Michigan and the Centre for Development Economics (CDE). It considers to what extent the stock of natural resources (forests, grazing lands, and groundwater) available to rural households affects their income from agriculture and other productive activities. Much of the literature on poverty-environment interactions has focused on the link from poverty to the environment, investigating for example whether poor households tend to place greater pressure on natural resources, leading to their degradation. In contrast, this project focuses on the reverse link from environment to poverty, asking to what extent interventions in the natural resource sector may help reduce the incidence of poverty. This study considers three major natural resource stocks, namely forest, fodder, and groundwater, and the simultaneous impact of changes in these stocks on profits from four income-generating activities of rural households, namely, agriculture, livestock rearing, home enterprises, and direct resource extraction. The data for this study has been collected through primary surveys of 550 households in 60 villages in Jhabua district in western Madhya Pradesh during August 2001-June 2002. Extensive primary and secondary village and block level data including ground water measurements in sample villages has also been collected. Data on biomass (forest and fodder) is being collected through remote sensing and ground surveys. Preliminary model estimation is under way and dissemination will commence by December, 2002. The project methodology was presented at the 2nd World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists, Monterey, California, June 24-27, 2002. Market Based Instruments for Regional Environmental Management Principal Investigators: Shreekant Gupta (CDE), P. Khanna (IIEM), K.P. Nyati (CII-EMD)

Funded by: Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Government of India This study is being conducted in the Kawas-Hazira industrial region of western Gujarat in partnership with the Indian Institute of Environment Management (IIEM) Mumbai, and the Environment Management Division (EMD) of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). The overall objective of this MoEF funded project is to design market-based instruments (MBIs) to improve the economic 239

and environmental performance of industries in the Kawas-Hazira region and delineation of an implementation plan. To this end, CDE researchers are employing a distance function approach. This method deduces the (shadow) price of a pollutant from plant-level data on underlying technical relationship between inputs and multiple outputs-including the `output' of one or more pollutants. The technical approach to the problem of estimating shadow prices for a pollutant (the converse of costs of abatement) involves specifying a multipleoutput production technology in which pollutants are considered to be (bad) outputs. Re-Examing the Inadequacy of Nutrient Intakes in India. Principal Investigator : Funded by : J.V. Meenakshi The World Bank

Conducted in collaboration with Dr. Brinda Vishwanathan of the MIDS, the study examines changes in nutrient intake between 1983 and 1999/2000. It demonstrates that despite a decline in the average intake of calories and proteins, the incidence of abject deprivation in nutrient intakes has declined over time, as has inequality in intakes. The diet has also become more diversified in content. The study is based on the unit record data from the National Sample Survey Organization's consumer expenditure surveys. Preliminary findings were presented at a workshop on Poverty Measurement, Monitoring and Evaluation conducted jointly by the Planning Commission and the World Bank in January 2002. "Economics of Destitution" Principal Investigator : Dr. Jean Dreze Professor Jean Dreze is coordinating an evaluation of food-based welfare schemes, particularly the recently introduced Antyodaya Anna Yojana, a programme of social security for destitute households. A field survey of the Antyodaya programme was carried out in five states (Andhra Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Orissa, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh) in June 2002, with a team of student volunteers. Preliminary results indicate that the scheme is doing quite well, in contrast with most other food-based welfare programmes. Most of the households included in the Antyodaya programme are very poor, suggesting that the "selection" procedure is working reasonably well. Further, the sample households obtained about 70 per cent of their official entitlements (currently 35 kgs of grain per month) since the programme was introduced. This compares 240

favourably with the public distribution system and school-meal programmes in the same areas. Further, corruption in the Antyodaya programme appears to be relatively low. The programme is particularly effective in Andhra Pradesh, and very effective in Jharkhand. International Econometric (Link) India Model Core Team : Funded by: K. Sundaram, Pami Dua, V. Pandit and K.

Trade And Competition Policy Principal Investigator : Aditya Bhattacharjea Funded by : Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. This project sponsors analytical studies and provides background papers and advisory inputs to support India's position in the WTO Working Group on Trade and Competition Policy, its preparation for the Cancun Ministerial meeting in September 2003, and any immediate developments that follow from decisions taken at that meeting. In the one year of the project's existence until July 2003, seven background papers and two advisory opinions have been provided the Ministry. Two of the papers have been used as inputs for India's official submissions to the Working Group, and another has been circulated and presented to the Ministry's Expert Group on Trade and Competition Policy, of which the Principal Investigator is a member. Understanding the Indian Economic Policy Reforms Principal Investigator Funded by : : Suresh D. Tendulkar and T. A. Bhawani Global Development Network, Washington D.C. 241

In the context of understanding the dynamics of the Indian reforms process since 1991, the research under the project seeks to explore the following issues. Timing of the reforms: In spite of overload on the State (Rudolph and Rudolph, 1987) beyond its capacity becoming clear since the mid-1960s, why did the earlier policies continue despite minor attempts at modifications till 1991? Why did reform process not stop with the fiscal stabilisation (although this aspect has been reversed in the last 5 years) but was combined with the structural adjustment policies? Sequencing of reforms: The reforms started with liberalisation of restrictions on domestic investment and on merchandise trade. This was accompanied with a lag by a hesitant and much less wide-ranging liberalisation of private foreign investment and a very partial, small-scale and controversy-ridden privatisation of public sector commercial enterprises. While exit restrictions for labour and capital had been on the agenda since 1991, very little progress has been done on both counts, which are being described as "second generation institutional reforms". The basic focus in the last few years has been procedural simplifications to cut down the transaction costs associated with direct and indirect taxes. We wish to investigate the question : What have been the possible dominant forces - economic and political - behind the sequence that has been followed? In other words, why have reforms been faster in certain areas and slow or absent in other areas? Why has the reform process slowed down in the as me years? The question of resurfacing of large fiscal deficits and the associated slowed down in the growth rate and the slowing down of the pace of reforms in general over this period would be investigated.

GEOGRAPHY

Major Research Work The Department has developed variety of research areas covering most subfields of the discipline. Human Geography related specializations such as Urban Studies, Agriculture and Population Dynamics dominated the formative years of the Department. Physical Geography remained weak until the name of the Department was changed to "Geography Department". Since then both branches of geography have developed with their own specializations like Environmental And Ecological Issues, Natural Resource Management, Analytical Physical Geography, Biogeography and Study of Natural Hazards. Within Human Geography, Urban and Regional Planning, Geography of Social Well-being (health and gender), Food and Agriculture and Political Geography have emerged as thrust areas of research and teaching. More recently, the Department has developed a state-of the art GIS Lab. with support largely from the University Grants Commission under Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and has strengthened the analytical and mapping capabilities of the faculty and the students. The Department has produced 114 Ph.D.s and 160 M.Phil.s. Selections/Promotions Dr. B. Khan from Lecturer to Reader. Dr. R.B. Singh from lecturer to Reader. Dr. Anu Kapur from Lecture to Reader.

HISTORY (SDC)

Major Activities The Department runs a full-fledged programme in M.A. in History with a permanent teaching staff of 4 and as at present there are only 3 persons managing the Department. Despite this anomaly we are taking help from the Colleges of the Main Campus and selected teachers from the Colleges to maintain quality teaching. The Department visualizes the strengthening of the academic profile of post-graduate teaching in History within the parameters of social undertaking of the present. The contribution of the South Campus to 259

historical studies lies in offering mainstream courses in history to students registered South Delhi directly and through selected South Campus Colleges. The members of the Department are engaged in high quality of research work. New Courses introduced Two optional papers of Ancient Indian History at M.A. Part II have been introduced exclusively at the South Campus. They are not being taught at the Main Campus. This has been done to keep up the distinct identity of South Campus even though we are duplicating the teaching of M.A. Courses at the South Campus. It is hoped that authority will appreciate such a beginning. Seminars/Conferences attended Dr. M.L. Bhatia Publications M.L.

POLITICAL SCIENCE

Major Activities The core strength of our Department lies in Political Theory. Departing from the traditionally Eurocentric orientation of Political theory, it is engaged in theorizing over the ideas and practices of Indian political. Indeed, some of the best minds engaged in this area are now part of our faculty. Among the rey areas that our faculty members have addressed are multiculturalism and secularism. There has been a path breaking publication on Contemporary Civil Society. A seminar on the nature and forms of humiliation was organized, which is the first time that this subject has been addressed anywhere in the world. There has been lack of good Readers in Indian Politics: this situation has been partly remedied by a Reader a Public Administration. Finally, a research project on "Proverty Eradication and Local Institutions in Kalahandi, Bhogpur and Chittor" under the auspices of the Planning Commission was successfully completed. M.

SOCIAL WORK

Major Activities The Delhi School of Social Work, now known as the Department of Social Work, was the second school of social work to be established in India. It was the first to be recognised by a University for offering a programme of instruction leading to the Master's Degree in Social Work. The School was first set up as the National YWCA School of Social Work at Lucknow in August 1946, under the auspices of the National YWCA of India, Burma and Ceylon. In 1948, it was shifted to Delhi. In the beginning, the school offered Social Work courses of varying duration. From 1950 onwards, it started two-year training programme at the post-graduate level and became a constituent college of the University of Delhi. Subsequently, it was taken over by the University in April 1961, as a post-graduate department in the Faculty of Social Sciences. The University Grants Commission has recognised it as Department of Social Assistance (DSA) since 1992. As a professional institution, the Department strives for:Imparting education and training in professional social work in order to 292

provide qualified personnel in social development, welfare and allied fields; Developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and values appropriate to the social work profession; Promoting integration of theory and practice in the fields of social development and social policy; and Providing interdisciplinary collaboration for better understanding of human problems, situation, services and issues of social development. 17 students of the batch 2000-02 secured first division. The department has built up a computer centre by adding four P-4 processors, multimedia, two laser printers and a scanner. Through Er-net connectivity all teachers will soon be globally connected. The Department's library is known as one of the most reputed libraries in Schools of Social Work in the country. It has books covering the latest development in Social Work and allied fields and subscribes to useful national/international journals. The grant under DSA to augment the resources of library has been used very judiciously. The process of computerizing the library has recently been initiated. This will prove beneficial to the students and faculty members. Addition to the Faculty Dr. Manoj Kumar Jha Dr. Tomy Philips Aruna Bhardwaj Sneh Lata Tandon Sanjai Bhatt Dr. Surabhi Aggarwal M.

FACULTY OF MUSIC AND FINE ARTS MUSIC

Major Activities Research work in the Department continued in full swing in the academic year 308 under review. Thrust areas included indepth study of traditional music as well as experimental and comparative aspects. Foreign scholars who have been enrolled this year, have mostly offered subjects with a comparative approach. Aesthetical and critical analyses are the other major topics selected by the candidates. While concentrating on the theoretical, historical and scientific study

of the art of music ­ both Hindustani and Karnatak ­ the practical aspect has not been neglected.

Major Activities The faculty strength being at the minimum, the department concentrated more on quality teaching in the initial years. We have had a track record of 100% placement before the students pass out ever since the first batch of our M.C.A. students came out in 1985. Now that things have fairly stabilized with three faculty members having joined recently, the Department wishes to establish itself as a centre of excellence in research. We particularly aim at the areas ­ Artificial Intelligence, Parallel Computing, Database and Data Mining, Software Engineering, Computer Graphics, Coding, Networking and Security. At present the Department has about twenty five Ph.D. students working in these areas. The Department proposes to start research oriented M.Sc. (Computer Science) and M.Tech (Computer Science) Programmes where the students would be expected to take up research and development projects.

GENETICS (SDC)

Major Activities The department offers two-year Master's programme leading to the M.Sc. (Genetics) degree. The department has an active Ph.D. programme. It also participate in the M.Phil. (Biotechnology) programme along with other applied science departments. The research activities of the Department of Genetics are of a varied nature, covering the areas of Plant Genetics, Microbial Genetics, Mammalian and Human Genetics. The research interests of the Department are briefly mentioned below: Professor Sheela Srivastava's group has been involved in understanding the gene function and mechanism of heavy metal resistance in soil bacteria and fungi with special reference to Nickel, Cobalt, Copper and Zinc. Extensive characterization work has already been taken up and the growth kinetics for these strains have been worked out and so also the ion-ion interactions. Detailed genetic analysis is being carried out to understand the mechanism of resistance so as to suggest methods of metal removal/recovery for industrial purpose and environmental bioremediation. Zinc, Cd resistance determinant (zcr) from a Pseudomonas species has been cloned in E. coil. Similarly genes encoding copper resistance from two other Pseudomonas species have also been cloned. Many microbial systems with capabilities of accumulating metals have been developed so as to apply them in metal recovery and environmental cleanup. Fungal systems with efficient removal of particulate metals have also been 341

developed. Metal removal capability from the industrial effluent of pre-formed biomass has been demonstrated. Besides, metal tolerance is also being studied in some plants. Cadmium tolerance in one plant has been found out to be due to the synthesis of a Cd-binding protein. Cd and Cu tolerance in Cicer and pea as well as the associated symbiotic rhizobia is being characterized. Cytotoxic effects of several metal ions have been demonstrated in plants. Bacteriocin production in environmental isolates of lactobacilli is being looked into to develop a biopreservative. We have looked at different aspects of this function in terms of its production, stability storage and range of effectivity. Attempts are on to purify the bacteriocin and characterize it further. Genetic basis of bacteriocin synthesis is also under. Another line of study deals with the rhizospheric bacteria and plant-microbe interactions. Production of phytohormones and other useful biomolecules will be looked into. Dr. M.V. Rajam's group has been involved in investigating the role of naturally occurring polyamines (Putrescine, spermidine and spermine) in plant cell differentiation and morphogenesis, and stress responses in rice and eggplant tissue cultures, and the regulation of in vitro developmental processes, and transgenic research (e.g, somatic embryogenesis) by modulating the cellular polyamine pools either by using external polyamines/polyamine inhibitors or by genetic engineering of polyamine and carbohydrate metabolism. Abiotic stress tolerant rice, eggplant, tomato and tobacco transgenic plant were developed by pathway engineering of polyamines and carbohydrates. Besides, development of transgenic eggplant and rice for disease resistance (against fungal and viral diseases) and tomato for retardation of fruit ripening is also being pursued. Eggplant transgenics with glucanase, chitinase and thaumatin genes were produced and such transgenics showed increased resistance to fungal wilts caused by Fsarium oxysporum and Verticillium dahliae, as well as bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonic solanacearum. Dr. B.K. Thelma's research efforts in the last few years are in the area of molecular genetics of some of the human brain disorder particularly nervous development (fragile X syndrome), neurodegenerative (Parkinson's disease) and neuropsychiatric (schizophrenia) disorders. The group has identified associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the candidate gene by high throughput SNP genotyping in patients suffering from schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease. Novel mutations in two X-linked genes have been observed in the patients suffering from X-linked mental retardation. 342

Three faculty members consisting of Professor Deepak Pental, Professor Akshay K. Pradhan and Dr. Pradeep K. Burma are working on a long-term collaborative project with the objective to increase productivity and to improve oil and meal quality of oilseed Brassica juncea through both conventional and biotechnological approaches. Professor Deepak Pental's group has developed male sterile (barnase) and fertility restorer (barstar) lines through transgenic approaches which can be used for hybrid seed production in B. juncea at commercial level. These genes have been transferred to good combiners in B. juncea. Permission from Review Committee on Genetic Manipulation (RCGM), Department of Biotechnology, Government of India has been obtained to carry out contained open field yield trials of the hybrids and hybrid seed production of these transgenic mustard lines expressing barnase and barstar genes. To further improve the efficiency of restoration by barstar genes, two promoter strategy has been successfully developed and transgenic lines are being evaluated for their performance. To improve the fatty acid profile and the keeping quality of the mustard oil, stable homozygous antisense transgenics with fatty acid desturase-2 (fad2) containing 74% oleic acid and 9-10% of linoleic and linolenic acid have also been developed. Dr. Pradeep K. Burma's group is mainly working on development of novel promoters that could escape homology based transgene silencing so that gene pyramiding can be successfully undertaken. His group has come up with a strategy of making such promoters by placing cis-elements involved in transcription factors binding in a novel DNA context. Professor Akshay K. Pradhan's group has been involved in development of molecular markers in B. juncea for their application in marker assisted breeding. A high density linkage map with 1148 AFLP and RFLP markers has been constructed in B. juncea. Subsequently, molecular mapping and tagging of the erucic acid trait in B. juncea was done by candidate gene approach. High throughout SNP markers suitable for marker assisted transfer of erucic acid trait were developed. QTL dissection of quantitative traits pertaining to yield components and quality are in progress. Honours/Distinctions ­ Academic Staff Dr. M. V. Rajam, Editor, Physiol. Mol. Biol. Plants.

MICROBIOLOGY (SDC)

Major Activities Work on the epidemiology of Yersinia enterocolitica indicate that this emerging water and food-borne pathogen is present in wastewater, river water, ground water, pork, pigs and diarrheic human subjects. This is one of the largest collections of this organism isolated from Indian sub-continent. All the isolates have been ribotyped. Another thrust area is biochemical and molecular characterization of industrially important protease and lipase. A rapid PNPP assay protocol was developed for the assay of lipases and esterases. Production was scaled up to 14 L fermentor with 10 L working volume for lipase from Burkholderia sp. and protease from Bacillus sp. Immobilization of protease form Bacillus sp. and its use in the preparation of casein hydrolysate was standardized. The production of glucoamylase of Thermomucor indicaeseudaticae, -amylase by Geobacillus thermoleovorans and polygalactouronase by Sporotrichen thermophile, and Bacillus permilus was optimized by response surface methodology. A strain of Bacillus sp. was shown to produce thermostable anti-fungal peptide antibiotic that is very effective in inhibiting spore germination and mycelial growth of Curvalaria lunata. Approximately four hundred anaerobic microorganisms for the production of organic acids have been screened. Bacteria producing 22.0 g/I succinic and 25g/l lactic acid have been isolated. This is one of the highest yields reported. This has resulted in the establishment of a well-equipped anaerobic laboratory. A method for enzyme-mediated processing of leather has been developed. The method has been optimized for commercialization. Tannase having high conversion rates (85%) of tannin and tannic acid to gallic acid, a pharmaceutically important organic acid has been developed. The tannases produced can efficiently carry out ester synthesis. These esters can be used as antioxidants in food industry. A modified method for DNA isolation from white-root fungi has 347

been developed. Laccase gene has been cloned in Aspergilleus niger. Xylanase gene has been cloned in E.coli. Appointment of Faculty Member to Higher Post Dr. R.C.

PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY (SDC)

Major Activities Rice Genome Sequencing The Indian Intiation for Rice Genome Sequencing (IIRGS) at South Campus performed~100,000 sequencing reactions to generate ~45,000 kb of primary sequence data and assembled the sequence into 4-5 million bases of high quality sequence. This takes the quantum of high quality sequence generated to nine million bases thereby finishing the phase II sequence. Phase III of sequencing was initiated. 353

Gene Regulating Plant Development Plant development is regulated by both extrinsic and intrinsic cues. Light is the most important extrinsic factor that influences practically every facet of plant development. Light is perceived by red/far-red sensing phvtochromes (PHYs) and blue/UV-A receptors, cryptochromes and phototropins. Extensive work has been done on cloning and characterization of PHYA family and a PHYC from wheat; PHYA is light labile whereas PHYC is light stable species. In the past year, Cryptochromel (CRY1) gene/cDNA have been sequenced from Brassica napus. CRY cDNA has been over-expressed in E. coli and the induced protein purified to raise antibodies. The western analysis shows that unlike Arabidopsis CRY1, B. napus CRY1 is induced by blue light; it is present in all tissues examined. The function of OSISAP] was validated by producing transgenics which overexpress the gene constitutively. It was found to help sustain the germination/ seedling growth during cold, salt and water stress. Three anther-specific promoters were also characterized in transgenic systems. In addition, a polycomb group gene, OsiEZi has been sequenced and functionally characterized from rice. It encodes a nuclear localized protein and is expressed preferentially during reproductive development and in young seedlings. The OsiEZI gene could complement a mutation in yeast (in a SET domain component) and restore telomere silencing, indicating that chromatin modulating factors are conserved in eukaryotes as diverse in yeast and rice. Plant Biotechnology, Cell Culture and Genetic Engineering Regeneration and genetic transformation of wheat has been established in T. aestivum, P durum and T. dicoccum, by partical bombardment and Agrobacterium -mediated gene transfer. Besides the conventional screenable and selectable marker genes, some genes introduced are the bar gene for herbicide resistance, pinII gene for insect resistance and the HVA1 gene for abiotic stress tolerance. The transgenics recovered are being screened for the introduced traits. Additionally, these systems are also being utilized for understanding and isolating genes associated with somatic embryogenesis in wheat. With respect to Seribiotechnology, the Indian cultivars of mulberry have been regenerated from seedling and mature tissue explants for micropropagation and genetically transformed with Agrobacterium. The transformation work is 354

also being directed towards developing and screening for abiotic tolerance in this important plantation crop. Rice transgenics, with cod A gene, were tested for stress tolerance in containment green house at R3 generation. Stress Molecular Biology We have cloned and characterized hsp 100 gene. We have over-expressed Arabidopsis thaliana hsp 100 gene in rice. Transgenic rice over-expressing hsp 100 gene shows increased high temperature tolerance. Molecular Organization and Gene Expression of Rice Tungro Bacilliform Virus and Cassava Mosaic Virus Rice tungro spherical virus was purified and its RNA genome cloned and partially sequenced. This analysis revealed a strong homology with similar viruses reported earlier from Southeast Asian countries. Various full-length and deleted versions of the rice tungro bacilliform virus promoter were linked to the reporter gene GUS, whose expression was studied in transgenic rice plants. This has enabled the identification of tissue-specific and development-specific elements in the above promoter. For engineering virus resistance, transgenic rice plants have been generated containing various viral genes. Transgenic lines have been identified with integrated transgenes for viral resistance assays. Nine independent full-length viral genomes have been cloned from cassava, representing Indian cassava mosaic virus. Their sequence analysis suggests the presence of a new type of virus not previously reported from India. Some of the clones have been shown to be infectious on tobacco, a model plant, which can be used for studies on plant-virus interactions. Variability studies on the viral genome from more than 50 field samples have also indicated the presence of novel viruses. Development of Edible Vaccine Against Cholera Tomato plants were transformed with genes encoding for CTB, TCP and ACF antigens of Vibrio Cholerae. The expression of CTB in transgenic tomato plants was improved from 0.02% of total soluble protein (TSP) in tomato fruit which was obtained earlier to 0.26% TSP in ripe fruit and 0.7% in green fruit. Isolation of Fruit Ripening-specific Genes Nearly 30 genes related to fruit ripening have been amplified from ripeningspecific tomato cDNA library or genomic DNA by PCR. These genes have been cloned, and would be used for355 preparation of a gene array.
