Shilpi Verma, Mega Arora


In this paper the investigator tries to find out the importance of current awareness services among the users and to look out the users’ input concerning the awareness as well as availing of the service. Data was collected through a self-designed questionnaire. 80 questionnaires were distributed randomly among the users and from the 94% response rate it is revealed that the majority of respondents feel it, as an essential one. But it is observed that the response rate of availing the service is low due to the low response rate of awareness among the respondents.
