It is a habit generated in the students that whenever they prepare a business plan, they consider a very huge budget, which is actually impossible for them either to gather the amount or seek for a loan. To make the understand the reality, Dr. Riyasat Peerzade & Mr. Akhtar Ali Sayyed have asked the students to visit the bank and gather all the relevant information related to loan procedure for starting up a business from various banks.
Students were divided in 6 groups and asked to visit different banks to gather the information. But the activity had a twist.
