"In fact I’m happy it has been reported and attention has been given to it. I’d actually complement the IIM Indore administration for coming out with daily updates on the progress." ---- LOL ...... dis is exactly the same way congress reacts when questioned about corruption scams ---it pats its back for RTI act wch it introduced nd claims all the scams are coming out in public coz of it . --safety of students is institute's responsibility, the blame partially lies with IIM indore administration , accept it !

How about the concept of multiple student run messes where the student pay monthly fees to a mess and eat there. Since the mess is student run (administering it right from hiring cook to overlooking daily expense account) and mess manager rotated on a monthly basis, the food quality could be kept check on. If the quality goes bad the mess manager can change staff/cook etc... Also students have choice to shift to a different mess serving better food. We had a similar system in my engineering college...Worked pretty well !

For the mess manager to effectively leverage economies of scale, he needs a good estimate of the demand. A well-run mess should ideally be able to take variations in demand in account and manage his pricing and supply, but if this is practicable is the question.

We at Spjain have system of daily pay when you eat. We might enter into a monthly subscription or we might pay that tiume for that meal. The best part is that many a times Bschoolers eat outside and since you have already paid for the mess, it results in wastage of money and food. This syatem helps in preventing that

At NITIE we have two contractors in campus, students are free to choose one mess and cos of competition quality is good as they try to outdo each other and 82 bucks per day with an option to opt for mess only for 10 days a month, its a steal for the students especially considering being in Mumbai. The power of negotiation always lies with the students and we have been able to use that to a good extent when the contractors deviate or try to make some untoward profits.
