the City of Scepticism I had to pass through the Valley of Ambiguity” When I entered this House I was sceptical on whether I would live up to its daunting standards and I leave today as sceptical but certainly with no ambiguity In the debates there have been moments of highs and lows — disruptions but also debates of extraordinary quality The stint in Rajya Sabha gave me the opportunity to raise issues germane to the development of Bihar I did whatever I could to highlight Bihar’s achievements challenges and opportunities Notwithstanding Bihar’s glorious history from being the seat of the oldest republic and the cradle of the great kingdoms of the Guptas and Mauryas it fell back on times The present regime under the leadership of Shri Nitish Kumar has brought about far-reaching economic and social changes It will be fair to say that the outcome is neither the work of one party nor one person It is the outcome of the joint efforts of the NDA of which my party was an alliance partner till June last year And the collective political leadership of both the parties played a critical role in bringing about these far-reaching changes The challenges of Bihar are far from over Sustaining high rates of economic growth over coming social challenges moving over from identity-based development-centric policies enticing private investment and improving physical and social infrastructure to reach national averages in our lifetime would be the litmus test of the present and future political leadership of the state I want to speak a little on what I perceive to be the five key challenges of India: First how to achieve high rates of sustained economic growth without accentuating inequality Twenty-first century capitalism may have metamorphosed (or undergone creative destruction as Joseph Schumpeter would have said) in multiple ways from laissez-faire capitalism to social democratic capitalism to what is now called Capitalism 50 Contemporary economic literature suggests that economic liberalisation unleashes forces of competition improving productivity enlarging the bouquet of choice for consumers improves Total Factor Productivity and enhances growth But are there limits to what is pejoratively described as neoliberal capitalism How does one balance the virtues of growth with the compulsions of equity Can there be a “Conscionable Capitalism” relevant to India’s socio-economic compulsions Second when will we ever have time to reform the rubric of governance And to reform Parliament itself — the centrepiece of our governance architecture As India has become increasingly integrated and interdependent with the world are the parliamentary rules procedures methods of work and exercise of parliamentary superintendence over the executive in India adequate to meet contemporary challenges Should not the parliamentary calendar be fixed and predictable Should budget-making be shrouded in secrecy and all parliamentary engagement become ex-post and not ex-ante And in an interdependent world should the executive have the latitude to make far-reaching international commitments on trade on environment on energy without parliamentary approval Should we not at least devote one day to discuss India’s Five-Year Plan These are matters for this House to ponder over Third the changing role of the state In a poor society like ours with inadequate social security systems what would be a more optimum mix of poverty alleviation measures and a new form of welfareism which we have embraced as legally enforcing entitlements Unless radically different ways of delivering service and implementation are adopted these added responsibilities of the state will make growth itself a far cry Fourth how to break the conundrum between agriculture manufacturing and employment in a country with adverse land-man ratio To raise agricultural productivity would need externalities of scale by creating alternative gainful employment opportunities Economies of scale would entail alternative employment opportunities in manufacturing hubs which has scarcely begun Orderly urbanisation in major cities is inescapable for sustaining migration in the quest for alternative employment opportunities Managing the environmental consequences of growth is easier said than done Our carbon footprints may be low but conscious steps which will reconfigure economic activity patterns and variations in alternative forms of energy — and in agriculture industry and services — will prove challenging These may require new approaches and new ideas beyond what we have tried To this end John Maynard Keynes had said “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones” Finally making India an innovation-driven society Technological and organisational innovation is the key to higher productivity and competitiveness We must encourage and incentivise innovation and its diffusion in academia and government as well as in enterprises of all sizes Innovation should focus not only on research and discovery but [also] on how best it benefits the poor NK Singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Arita Sarkar | Mumbai | Published: June 30 2017 3:09 am Related News CONSIDERING the dire need of treating the city’s sewage currently being discharged into the sea at several locations the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has made the provision for three new pumping stations for sewage treatment in the eastern suburbs As part of the plan for the additional land handed over by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority earlier this year the reservation for three pumping stations have been made at Parig Khadi in L-ward (Kurla) and will be a part of the proposed land use report which will later be annexed to the Development Plan 2034 Officials from the Development Plan department said that the sewage treatment and pumping stations are part of the Mithi River Upgradation Project an initiative announced as part of the civic budget earlier this year Paying heed to environmental norms which mandate treatment of sewage municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta pointed out that earlier the Mithi river would only carry excess water from Virar during monsoon and would otherwise remain dry Currently however around 75 nullahs empty their contents into the Mithi river “The aim is to tap these nullahs and ensure that sewage is treated at these pumping stations properly before it is released This will be a part of the beautification project of the Mithi river that we will take up Our aim is eventually to do away with de-silting work which we can take up once in a while instead of annually” said Mehta The reservation for the pumping stations has been included in a 274 hectare plot at Parig Khadi which is a strip between LBS Road and Mithi river Apart from the pumping stations the DP department officials have also made new reservations for amenities including a school dispensary market playground municipal chowki and parking lot Two other plots for pumping stations are located in the suburbs which include a 474 hectare plot near Bandra Kurla Complex in H-West ward and a 393 hectare plot near the Oshiwara District Centre which falls between K-West and P-South ward While reservations for social amenities have been included in both the plots the plot located near Jogeshwari has been left largely for slum rehabilitation “The plot is predominantly occupied by a large industrial slum settlement We haven’t touched areas where the previous DP had marked a reservation of slum rehabilitation and work is underway” said the official The plans for the plot near the Bandra Kurla Complex however will be different and will include various public facilities “Apart from the regular social amenities we have made reservations for a municipal sports complex and a veterinary hospital We have also identified an open plot for a recreation ground” said the official He added that after handing over the plot MMRDA took back around 9 hectares of it which has a casting yard and was previously owned by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) The official added that all the plots are currently occupied by slum settlements and the residents will be moved to alternative plots After marking the reservations on the land the DP department officials are now in the process of finalising the development control regulations (DCR) “While legally the DC regulations of the entire city have to match with that of the additional area we are analyzing them to ensure that no one is affected by them once the new DP 2034 is enforced” said the official The BMC had released the existing land use report of the three plots on March 29 and is expected to submit the proposed land use report in the next weeks The officials added that the plan for the additional area will be added as an amendment to the draft DP 2034 before it is sent to the state government Similar to the process of the draft development plan the plan for the newly included area would have to go through the planning committee followed by the general body before it is sent to the Urban Development department [email protected] For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Editorial | Published: September 5 2016 12:02 am Top News It’s Teachers’ Day once more India knows what to expect — customary cultural programmes and ritualised demonstrations of affection punctuated by platitudinous interventions by politicians (with the significant exception of the president who takes a real class in civics and political history) Tomorrow it will be back to business as usual Although yesterday one of the oldest centres of learning in modern India threatened to close down on January 1 in the face of a funding crisis Panjab University has been addressing its deficit with central bridge funds released ad hoc but the ministry for human resource development has failed to clear its revised non-plan budget A succession of band-aids patch together a system kept perennially on the brink of collapse and the preference for temporary fixes over robust and continuing policies signals callousness While the transfer of the human resource development portfolio from Smriti Irani to Pakash Javadekar has defused political tensions administration remains to be improved Generally speaking higher education is battling ad hoc creep Apart from financial patches there is the preference for ad hoc teachers which is again driven by financial pressures It is cheaper to maintain stables of ad hoc teachers appointed quarterly instead of nurturing permanent teachers Temporary staff can be legally denied all but essential facilities and there is no danger of them organising to protest or strike However ad hoc staff have a hidden cost While institutions invest less in them they too invest less in the institutions where they teach While the system is making teaching an unattractive career option (how many students return to their alma mater as faculty) lack of security of tenure is robbing students and campuses of the support of a committed faculty The effects of state indifference are even more starkly visible in schools Not those brought into the spotlight for a few minutes every year by the visits of political leaders on Teachers’ Day but those which are generally beneath political notice Teacher absenteeism and tuition mafias have become serious problems in part because staff feel impelled to augment incomes If the midday meal scheme stutters it is because teachers denied resources to run it well see it as a burden There are indeed huge numbers of committed schoolteachers but that signals the triumph of the human spirit Quality teaching exists in spite of the system not because of it The government has given prestige to pedagogy with programmes on Teachers’ Day But it is time to move on from a token nod to the community and actually commit funds and resources towards making teaching a rewarding vocation once again and not only an inspiring calling For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
