One of Bhaumik’s most significant projects at NID was
the creation of an interactive help manual in Gujarati
for primary agricultural credit societies in Gujarat so
that they could use the Common Accounting System
introduced by the National Bank for Agriculture
and Rural Development (NABARD). Based on live
examples, the multimedia CD was visually appealing,
comprehensive, and easily understandable.
The other key tasks Bhaumik has undertaken at NID
include the upgrading the NID website by using CMSbased
web design, designing the web application
to support Open Elective registration for students,
designing a web application that provides support to
prospective employers and enables students to register
online for training/diploma projects and jobs during
Industry Interface, and implementing Google Apps for
NID’s email facility.

research on the Semantic Web, an artificial web of data
that facilitates machines to understand the semantics or
meaning of information that is available on the internet.
