NewsWritten by Christophe Jaffrelot | Updated: February 10 2017 11:39 am While the prime minister has reached the middle of his term the Economic Survey points out that “Perhaps the most important reforms to boost growth will be structural” like strategic disinvestment tax reform and subsidy rationalisation(PTI Photo) Top News For those who read every line the latest Economic Survey is alarming For those who read in-between the lines it is disturbing Certainly there is some good news FDIs for instance are still on the rise (while foreign portfolio investment is declining) and the current account deficit has been reduced in spite of the diminution of remittances largely because of a contained trade deficit Growth remains high at 72 per cent but its rate is declining and its composition is worrying Services continue to grow at 88 per cent and agriculture is back at 41 per cent because of a good monsoon but industry registers a setback from 74 per cent in 2015-16 to 52 per cent in 2016-17 The Economic Survey asks: “What went wrong” and offers the following explanation: In the 2000s “economies all over the world were booming” Indian firms “made plans accordingly They launched new projects worth lakhs of crores” their “investment financed by an astonishing credit boom” Naturally “projects that had been built around the assumption that growth would continue at double-digit levels were suddenly confronted with growth rates half that level” Firms stopped investing and banks mostly public which have accumulated a huge amount of bad loans stopped lending The growth of credit to industry became negative during the last fall making SMEs suffer even more than big companies WATCH VIDEO |Goods and Services Tax Network Rejects CAG’s Request To Appoint Auditor What to do This is where the Economic Survey needs to be read in-between the lines A few pages after celebrating the liberalisation of the economy and the end of socialism the authors admit that while “Most economic problems are best resolved through market-based mechanisms” “in this case this mechanism doesn’t seem to be working” — more “a centralised approach might be needed” Which means that “the bulk of the burden will necessarily fall on the government” and that it may even imply “forgiving some burden on the private sector” In other words: Businessmen have not strategised properly but they should not be held accountable and the taxpayer has to help them In this market economy of some kind benefits can be private but losses have to be socialised To be fair this is only the short-term solution the Economic Survey is suggesting The authors do not content themselves with this quick-fix perspective because they know that “unless there are fundamental reforms the problem will recur again and again” Why Because as Atul Kohli has already demonstrated India is not market-friendly but business-friendly (As the Economic Survey says on page 42 “India is not quite what it appears to be”): Even if crony capitalists have bad projects in mind politicians will twist the arm of the public bank managers to lend them the necessary amount — in exchange for the funding of some election campaign Hence this suggestion: “Structural reform aimed at preventing this can take many forms but serious consideration must also be given to the issue of government majority ownership in the public sector bank” Why is the suggestion not more precise and so hesitant because the authors know (and say) that it is in the domain of reform that “the least amount of progress has occurred” under the Modi government While the prime minister has reached the middle of his term the Economic Survey points out that “Perhaps the most important reforms to boost growth will be structural” like strategic disinvestment tax reform and subsidy rationalisation This is long overdue for those who supported the BJP in 2014 and for whom reforms were the mandate These reforms have not really taken place yet according to the Economic Survey In fact the epithet “structural” is repeated 18 times in the Survey to say that structural reforms are needed to suggest they are on their way and to say that they have happened already The chapter on demonetisation illustrates this fundamental hesitation WATCH VIDEO |RBI Asks Banks To Track Demand Drafts Used To Convert Old Notes To New During Demonetisation The Economic Survey offers the first official detailed analysis of demonetisation The reasons it mentions are standard: “to curb corruption” counterfeiting the use of high denomination and especially the accumulation of “black money” generated by income that has not been declared to the tax authorities The authors admit that the impact of this decision on the growth rate is underestimated because the evolution of the informal sector — that has been the most directly affected — is not measured precisely in the national income accounts Yet the graphs shown by the Economic Survey are telling: Sales of two-wheelers and cars have dropped by 10-20 per cent after the November 8 announcement; the real estate market has sunk etc The Survey candidly admits that the most badly affected have been the poor a category coterminous with the 350 million people who have no cellphone These “digitally excluded” cannot easily go cashless (Paradoxically the Survey considers that demonetisation has been popular in India on the basis of a “phone survey across households in five states (that) shows that approval rates for demonetisation have remained high over 75 per cent on average”) While the short-term damage is obvious the most disturbing conclusions pertain to the long-term gains The authors of the Economic Survey do not conceal that the long-term effects are conditional: Demonetisation will only bear fruit economically if it is accompanied by structural reforms including an ambitious GST Speculating that “GST will probably be implemented later in the fiscal year” the authors conclude: “The fiscal gains from implementing the GST and demonetisation while almost certain to occur will probably take time to be fully realised” The many doubts that are pervasive in the Economic Survey are refreshing in the present era of post-truth democracy when facts are often conveniently overlooked But they are disturbing too because the rulers’ sense of direction does not seem to be as firm as public discourse would like citizens to believe PS: One of the main issues for Indian society jobs is mentioned in passing — in contrast to the detailed study of the labour market in last

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar of threatening villagers of cutting off their water supply if they did not vote for Supriya Sule NCP nominee and daughter of the party chief Sharad Pawar Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Suresh Khopade in his complaint submitted at Vadgaon police station on Thursday has alleged that Pawar issued the threat of cutting off water supply during an election speech at village Masalwadi village under Baramati constituency of Pune district on April 16 a purported video of which was aired on television In the complaint which cites the video under reference Pawar allegedly tells the villagers of Masalwadi in his campaign speech in support of Sule that “If anybody from this village indulges in any trouble (failing to vote for Sule) I will cut off the water supply” Pawar’s statement was purportedly in response to complaints by the assembled villagers regarding inadequate water supply When contacted Assistant Police Inspector Vilas Bhosale told PTI that police had received Khopade’s complaint but no case has so far been registered against the deputy Chief Minister because police and Election Commission officials would have to check whether the video which has almost zero visibility is genuine or not “Due process will be followed after preliminary investigations into the complaint before registering it” he said Khopade had actually filed his complaint with election officials and not with police as it pertained to election campaign and code of conduct Bhosale said adding that the concerned video too had not been handed over to police “The application of complaint by Khopade was given to police belatedly on April 17 while the actual speech was purportedly made on April 16” he said An AAP spokesman said the party hoped that all concerned
