This phenomenon involves individuals engaging in secondary employment outside their regular working hours, be it full-time, contractual, or freelance. The COVID-19-induced shift to remote work further fuelled moonlighting, especially in the IT industry, where employees juggled two jobs simultaneously. This case study explores the multifaceted impacts of moonlighting in the Indian IT sector, examining pre- and post-COVID scenarios and addressing critical issues such as work-life balance, ethics, integrity, job insecurity, and the evolving landscape of work.</em> <em>Prior to the epidemic, the Indian IT sector was typified by a more conventional work style, with most people following a single job structure. But the COVID-19 epidemic forced a paradigm change, compelling businesses to quickly implement remote work practices. This change not only made moonlighting more common but also caused conventional labour arrangements and industry conventions to be reassessed. Examining the impact of moonlighting on work-life balance is crucial. There is a tangible worry about the possible impact on personal life of those who take on second jobs. Burnout and elevated stress levels may result from the blurring of the lines between the personal and professional domains. </em></p> Ms.Manju, Dr. Punam Devi, Garima , Bhumika Samal Copyright (c) 2024 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1310 Fri, 23 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Effect of Minimum Support Price on Cropping Patterns and Farmer Satisfaction: A Study in Uttar Andra Region of Andhra Pradesh State https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1312 <p><em>The government's Minimum Support Price policy is an important instrument for establishing the floor price of the primary agricultural products and protecting farmers against middlemen and market conditions that are volatile. There are no obvious signs that the government's intervention the launch of MSP to support farmers and agriculture is being done sufficiently. It has also been observed that the Government intervention has failed to achieve the stability objective so far as price is concerned. Due to the lack of infrastructure and the existence of middlemen, farmers acknowledged that they were marketing their produce at rates much below the MSP or reasonable rates at Mandi. In this research an attempt is made the impact of MSP on cropping patters and the level of farmer’s satisfaction in the implementation of MSP. A major factor behind this inefficiency is the lack of infrastructure support for agricultural marketing. The difficulties farmers have are made worse by the widespread presence of middlemen, who frequently force unfavourable trading terms upon them. Because of this, farmers become disillusioned with the supposed advantages of MSP, and they still have to deal with unstable finances and reduced profitability. Given these limitations, further research is necessary to determine how MSP affects planting patterns and how satisfied farmers are with its application</em></p> Tarakeswara Rao.
