During the construction of dam, large quantity of muck has been generated from different structure, from which only small quantity of muck has been used and balance have to be dispose off. In order to reduce the quantity of muck excavated can be possible by improving in the blasting process such as change in the parameter of blasting from which less amount of muck will generate and fragmentation is of desire size, so it can be directly use as aggregate and very less amount of muck have to dispose. Disposed quantity of muck may alter the water quality due to erosion from the site, vegetation at the site will control the erosion. It can be quite useful for taking various priority based mitigating measures such improved blasting, management for control quantity of muck generation as well as different biotechnical measures for controlling the soil erosion and made the site useful by growing vegetable and grain on the site which considered only a waste land during disposal process.

This research paper intends to cover the integration of intermittent renewable energies in an existing electrical system and in particularly in the case of solar parks. This includes aspects related to the operation, control and security analysis of solar parks in the transmission system. The delivery of power from Solar Parks to the transmission system is related to the security of the electrical system. The main aspect to consider is the integration of Solar Parks and how regulates them with the global problem in which the energy balance of the transmission system to be maintained and the consequences when this balance is lost voltage and flows control also comparative analyze in this work.

The tourism sector is one of the largest growing sectors, this sector comprises of many sub-sectors like food, traveling, leisure, transportation are few among others but food industry is considered the ‘back bone’ of this sector. There has been a lot of research on consumer buying behavior most of which are directed towards products and services in general. However this research focuses on restaurant industry and more specifically towards the factors that influence the choice of customer in selecting the restaurant. Generally, the process of selecting the restaurant is based on the various services being offered by the restaurant, information available about the restaurant online, variety in menu and above all the personal preferences of the consumer. This paper is based on primary data collected through a questionnaire. The study was carried out in selected fine dining restaurants of Delhi & NCR. Question related to respondent’s gender, age, and marital status, educational qualification, designation, experience, purpose of visits, monthly income, and religion they are associated with. The samples were drawn from the population of 200 respondents, who were either local residents or tourists at Delhi & NCR region. The study was carried out at selected fine dining restaurants in Noida, Faridabad and South Delhi. The data was analyzed using Chi-square test, ANOVA and t-test method using SPSS. This paper is based on primary data collected through a self constructed questionnaire. The samples were drawn from the population of 200 respondents who were dining in 10 different restaurants in Delhi & NCR. .
