New Forum to help Management of City

Pune has, in recent years, acquired a leading place among the metro cities of the country, by its rapid growth in the fields of IT, Auto Industry and innumerable premier institutions of higher learning. It has also attracted a large number of retirees from both across the country as well as the NRI community, as the city offers excellent climate and diverse cultural activities of the highest level.

Rapid growth however, has brought in its trail complex infrastructural problems, which require a proactive approach with comprehensive study by experts in all civic and state issues.

Tieup for Entrepreneurial Activities

BYST is on an expansion path to foster a nation-wide mentoring movement through business volunteering, specifically to “turn job seekers into job creators” and to become a role model for “Youth Entrepreneurship Development through Mentoring” both in India and developing countries.
As Pune Management Association (PMA), Pune, body with an objective of promoting and  providing Professional Education in  Pune.

Experts coming from various Small Scale Industries present and discuss various topics related to starting of a venture, project planning, Project reporting, day to day management, etc. in such meetings.

Real Estate/Construction Guidance Cell

Real Estate is the area of concern of each and everybody irrespective of his status. Person has to deal with Real Estate atleast once in his lifetime. Despite of this there is hardly any platform available to make needy people aware about basic things like land dealings, land records, registration, FSI, TDR, transfer of land rights, Society registration and problems related to it.
Secondly Pune and surrounding areas have seen tremendous growth in Construction sector, which has resulted in acute shortage of learned and trained manpower & engineers. At the same time there is a general complaint from the professionals that they do not get proper quality of people. Experts feel that this is mainly because students and youngsters with good academic records do not enter into this fast growing field.
Though this field has seen unprecedented slump in the market, still the requirement of good quality of trained manpower has not gone down. Secondly, hardly any down slide is observed in other main infrastructure areas like Construction Roads, Bridges etc.
This has highlighted need of educating the youngsters about opportunities in this sector. PMA has formed a Guidance Cell to give free guidance on Reality & Construction Sector Opportunities to the needy youngsters. Those interested in availing this free facility can contact Hon Secretary
