am Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian Related News The mid-year economic review presented by Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian puts up a brave front by concluding that “prima facie” economic growth is showing “signs of steady recovery” but the data shared in the review paints a sobering picture As against a real (after discounting for inflation) GDP growth of 75 per cent in the first half of the last financial year (2014-15) growth clocked just 72 per cent in the first half of this fiscal The review claims that the real GDP growth for the full financial year 2015-16 will be between 7 and 75 per cent The outlook for the next financial year 2016-17 is not any better To put these numbers in perspective consider this: One the real GDP of the country in 2013-14 (the last year of the UPA government) was 69 per cent Two in the economic survey presented barely nine months ago the CEA had given a growth outlook of 81-85 per cent for the current fiscal In other words not only has India’s growth decelerated from what it was in the same period of the last financial year it is close to what it was around the time the NDA government took over But even these headline GDP growth numbers mask the real economic and indeed political challenge that the Narendra Modi government now faces The disaggregated data shared in the review gives what it calls “mixed sometimes puzzling signals” about the health of the economy For instance if one looks at the indicators of finance a gauge of economic activity one finds that consumer credit has picked up yet “industrial credit has slowed dramatically” Similarly while tax buoyancy is up the growth of capital good imports a proxy for the level of investment has “decelerated sharply” Such oddities are likely to further fuel the suspicion many have had about the veracity of the new GDP data even though the CEA has tried to explain the possible reason for the measurement uncertainty plaguing the new GDP series The Indian economy is doing well for a car with only two wheels running Compared to the boom years of 2004-11 neither exports nor private investments are contributing much to economic growth As such the economy is essentially being run on the other two wheels — private consumption and government expenditure The trouble is without adequate investment coming in soon the consumption story will falter The answer is in reforms that unleash the supply potential like the GST simpler labour laws and easier land acquisition and in public expenditure in infrastructure that crowds in private investment In the absence of these the government will soon be forced to compromise on its fiscal deficittargets For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Mumbai |

Narendra Modi government is under a 100-day review The manner in which defence and related military challenges have been addressed is instructive of the complex issues ahead Prime Minister Modi got off to a visually spectacular start when he made his maiden defence-related visit to the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya less than a month after being sworn in He sailed down the coast of Goa and recalled India’s rich but long-neglected maritime heritage and assured the armed forces that their many inadequacies would be addressed He assured veterans that the long-festering “one rank one pension” issue would be resolved in a satisfactory manner Maintaining this tempo the PM commissioned INS Kolkata an indigenously designed and built warship visited Leh and addressed the troops there and exhorted the scientists of the DRDO to work with greater dedication to enhance India’s indigenous defence production capability For a 100-day period this is an impressive track record But the challenge lies in implementing new policies in the ministry of defence and addressing the many imbalances that were inherited from the UPA The greatest handicap is the absence of a full-time defence minister Though undoubtedly competent Arun Jaitley can only do so much The spectrum of issues that need urgent attention range from the poor material state of all three armed forces particularly the shrinking ammunition stocks of the army and a burgeoning import bill with no credible alternative to frayed civil-military relations and the disturbing perception of a decline in moral fibre of the military The professionalism and apolitical character of the military has been a distinctive characteristic that has enabled the Indian democratic trajectory This was perhaps most evident during the Emergency when the military apex refused to be co-opted into the constitutional excesses that were at play Paradoxically the challenge of higher defence management received progressively less political attention and some of the revelations in recently published books point to petulant impulsiveness as the defining trait of higher defence decision-making Sri Lanka and the IPKF is a case in point The normative compulsion was replaced by what may be best described as the Bofors-HDW syndrome where scandals and charges of turpitude at the highest levels of government became the dominant perception The transition from Rajiv Gandhi to the current incumbent marks a quarter century and the challenge for the 100-day-old Modi government is herculean — the defence/ military stables have to be cleaned the entire edifice of the management of national security has to be comprehensively reviewed and rearranged A brief review of the military challenges of the last three months reveals the following The Supreme Court found it necessary to caution the government for the manner in which it had dealt with the sale of non-service pattern weapons by senior army officers A finger was pointed at the internal judicial processes of the military and the steady erosion of personal values and institutional ethos Intense no-holds-barred jockeying for higher ranks indiscipline within units poor officer-men relations aspersions of sexual intimidation (mercifully rare but still deplorable) and most recently the phenomenon of spouse-related interference in what ought to be purely service matters are cases in point An intrusive and aggressive media focus has made instant transparency and information dissemination the new norm in the armed forces Thus what was in the past confined to the cantonment or the barracks is “breaking news” — and the perception of a military that is internally disarrayed is growing This state of affairs is compounded by the complexity of the security challenges that have to be addressed Given the rough geo-strategic environment with two nuclear-armed neighbours a tenuous internal security situation that can be exacerbated by corrosive ideologies and a modest fiscal outlay the PM’s challenge is to create adequate national security capacity across the board The 1962 war the Kargil surprise and the Mumbai attack of 2008 are part of the collective memory and need to be preempted The current inflexible silo system among the armed forces a poor techno-industrial base within the country and an intellectual gene-pool in higher defence management that shuns any new stimulus and has resisted even the most feeble of changes are part of the prickly gauntlet that Modi has to pick up On board INS Vikramaditya the PM asserted: “This government is not just about promises” The next 1000 days will be a reasonable period for the Modi government to translate optics and rhetoric into reality and ensure that national security is appropriately bolstered A good start would be to appoint and empower a full-time defence minister The writer is director Society for Policy Studies New Delhi [email protected] For all the latest

Dilip Kagda Top News Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced Monday the government would intervene in rationalising the ready reckoner rates to check the superficial hike in property prices in cities like Mumbai and Pune The government would amend the existing Act to check the steep hike in ready reckoner rates he said Fadnavis said the government would bring a new comprehensive policy to make housing affordable for one and all across Maharashtra To facilitate redevelopment of old dilapidated buildings the chief minister said “If 51 per cent of the residents give consent for its redevelopment it would be held valid This will pave the way for evacuating the remaining49 per cent residents and begin with redevelopment of the old structures”Earlier redevelopment projects mandated consent of 70 per cent residents Fadnavis said Mumbai’s Development Plan (DP) would be unveiled and executed within a year He said the draft plan was being studied for holistic development of the city and its people The CM was speaking at the Real Estate Conclave organised by Marathi newspaper Loksatta of The Indian Express Group in Mumbai The topic of discussion was ‘Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) and Real Estate’ Conceding that affordable housing had always been a topic of debate Fadnavis said “In cities like Mumbai and Pune the increased ready reckoner rates and higher stamp duties often lead to steep escalation in prices of houses The municipal corporations’ increased premium coupled with Goods and Services Tax often lead to cumulative hike in the overall property prices making housing unaffordable at times” Acknowledging the need for affordable housing he added “At present the Act does not allow governments to intervene in determining the ready reckoner rates for houses/properties As a result it has its limitations The government will bring amendments to the Act” Fadnavis said there were complaints that premium/tax within the Mumbai corporation limits often led to higher costs with developers passing the financial burden on the buyers “All these details and hidden costs which often have to be borne by the buyers are being meticulously studied and would be addressed in the new policies which would be ready within next three months” he assured Referring to the recent building collapse in Bhendi Bazaar Fadnavis said “The safety of residents cannot be compromised at any cost and the government is taking concrete measures to facilitate less cumbersome measures for redevelopment of such structures in a time-bound manner” The chief minister also spoke on how enforcement of RERA would help in curtailing rampant violations and corruption by developers and brokers in the real estate sector MahaRERA Chairman Gautam
