Dear Nirmala,
Please see https://www.citehr.com/158881-confus...rch-topic.html I found this by clicking on the link in the box at the right under "Similar Topics".
As a Management Faculty, my advice is follow the same procedure as you would when you did your MBA Project. If you know under who you would like to work for your PhD, consult them; they may have funding to do reasearch. Otherwise choose a topic you feel passionate about, to avoid running out of interest half way through.
Have a nice day.

Hello Mr/Ms Tejal,

How about using Google Doc (Worksheet) for the same purpose. I believe this would be the best way for you in your purpose and for other as it is easy to use. Try it once and allow other to participate easily instead of downloading and uploading after filling up the form for you.

You can post a link of the same (Worksheet) and interested people will do their part.

Second, about selection of your Topic for study, I believe this should be based on your respective knowledge and experience in your professional life and education you have achieved so far. All six topics mentioned above, are really good but topic 3 & 6 I believe would be the best topics for your study that you can go with, but still I wanna say that Topic of your study must be related to past experience, knowledge and interest as you also are aware of the same. You are also holding a respective position and have experience and senior to me in experience, therefore, being a RESEARCHER, I just can share myself with you about it so please allow me..

Topic No. 1 & 2 can be covered by topic no. 3 and im sure you gonna meet with number of similarities with them while your study if you go with it.

Topic No. 3 - HRM Style Practices through IHRMS and e-HRM, its effectiveness and impact on professionals can be covered in study that you can easily use with a part of it or by categories while working on it

Topic No. 4 - “Work life balance for Woman Executive”, I believe you not just need to study about India Woman Entrepreneurs or related to Indian Company but also need to present a comparative and role playing by Woman at global level.

Topic No. 6 Today, though, a maximum number of Woman/Girls employed with BPO/KPO and work life is undergoing many changes because of them that also seeks a comparison and development by them at local and global lever. Also we can ignore the participation of both gender being HR Professionals and role playing at sectors/industries, therefore, work life balance with both gender must be included but by focusing on "Woman Employee /Professional" you can serve the purpose beautifully if you’d go for Topic No. 6 that can cover your both Topic No. 4 & 5 too
