Paper Title : PROJECT and SEMINAR
---------------------------------

Project and Seminar must be taken up from the real life problems. Marks for these are to be given on the
basis of Programming Style, User friendly I/O, on-line help and documentation (user Manual). This work
will carry 100 marks, (85 Marks for Project and Seminar Viva; and 15 Marks for Internal Assessment).
