1. Discharge headway modeling at signalized intersection under mixed traffic conditions

Progress between progressive vehicles working out a convergence amid the green time of flag activity is called discharge headway. It turns into a vital variable in flag tasks and examination as the estimation of factors; for example, immersion stream and limit of a convergence rely upon it. This examination reviews the variables influencing release progress under heterogeneous activity conditions which is portrayed by blended vehicle arrangement and absence of path train. Another technique is subsequently proposed to quantify degrees of progress for such cases. To acquire singular vehicle types of progress, every path is separated into different strips. The width of a specific strip is roughly equivalent to the width possessed by a bike. The types of progress of vehicles in every single strip are estimated independently and utilized for investigation. For this investigation information gathering was done at signalized convergences in Dehradun (Uttarakhand), India. Information was gathered for a solitary approach at all convergences. Types of progress of individual vehicles were estimated from the information gathered. discharge headway was demonstrated utilizing direct blended impact relapse. The impact of vehicle length, motor limit of vehicle, parallel position on roadway, and green time on release progress were displayed. It was found from the relapse examination that every one of these components had critical effect on discharge headway. The discharge headway display proposed in this examination could be utilized for acquiring immersion stream rates and limit at signalized crossing points under heterogeneous activity conditions moreover.

2. Project on water supply (conventional WTP)

This technical report is the Project Report for Patratu Block. Govt. of Jharkhand has planned to raise the % coverage of piped water supply schemes in rural areas. At present, the national average % of coverage of population through piped water supply scheme is 41% and at the state level, this coverage is 25.44% (approx). In the first phase, 15 districts of the states i.e. Dhanbad, Ramgarh, Bokaro, Latehar, Lohardaga, Saraikela, Dumka, Khunti, WestSinghbhum. Deoghar, Chatra, East Singhbhum, Godda, Jamtara&Pakur will be taken for 100% coverage through piped water supply schemes (District wise Rural Population has attached herewith) &in the 2nd phase, other districts will be covered. Drinking Water & Sanitation Department Government of Jharkhand intends to Provide identified villages in Patratu Block with a piped rural water supply System with a surface source. This document serves as the Report for the proposed Scheme. Patratu is located at 23.67°N and 85.28°E. Patratu is a Block placed in the Ramgarh district in Jharkhand. Located in the urban region of Jharkhand, it is one among the 6 blocks of Ramgarh district. The block has 46 Panchayats and there is a total of 17285 Families in this Block in ruralpart. As per Census 2011, Patratu's rural population is 92822. The total number of households is 17285.

3. Religious beliefs and practices of Thadou tribe in Chandel district, Manipur

Thadou tribe is living in the Chandel district of Manipur. Rice is their principal food and they are non-vegetarians and fond of drinking wine made from rice or maize. Their family is an inherently joint family. Marriage is through negotiation known as Neila. They are controlled by their Chiefs. Agriculture is the main occupation of many Thadou. They believed in one Supreme God called Chung Pathien. It is the concept of Chung Pathien or the source of "All Creation" that is considered to be the highest benevolent God who lives in heaven or sky. Goodness and kindness are associated with the benevolent spirit while all the misfortune, diseases, and death, etc. are believed to be the work of evil spirits. Ritual ceremonies are closely related to malevolent spirits to avoid being troubled and to benevolent spirits for ensuring good health and prosperity. Primitive faith and belief underwent change with Christianity. Most of the component of the study based on ethnography account. This paper mainly highlighted their beliefs, rituals, and practices of the Thadou tribe in Chandel district.
