first pre-budget meeting Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had with sectoral groups was about agriculture That was perhaps understandable given the crisis in agriculture and unprecedented unrest among farmers The Narendra Modi government must be smarting under the pain of knowing that agriculture growth in its last four years is lower than what it was in the tenure of the previous government How will this reflect in the budget A knee jerk reaction across governments has to announce more money for schemes or launching of new schemes more money for irrigation and rural infrastructure and invariably populist sops like loan waivers and subsidies Some of these are needed but will they help If you listen to the Facebook Live conversation that this writer had with Ashok Gulati eminent agricultural economist and Infosys chair professor at ICRIER previous budgets of this government have given huge amounts for irrigation but of the 99 projects that were to be completed by 2019 only 10 have been completed And even in these channels to be field have not been completed in three How can Indian agriculture be insulated from vagaries of rainfall if this is how a crucial issue like irrigation is being addressed The ineffective implementation is not just a problem in irrigation The Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and the e-NAM – both path-breaking initiatives of the Narendra Modi government – are also suffering In the case of the former farmers who have taken agricultural loans find the premium deducted without their knowledge and are not compensated for crop losses And Gulati reveals something absolutely shocking – insurance companies state governments and the central government passing the buck to each other Agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh loses no opportunity to boast about eNAM Figures are reeled out about mandis coming on to the eNAM platform number of commodities traded number of trades that have happened And yet that it is not working the way it was supposed to is an open secret Gulati talks about how the scheme lacks attention to issues like asaaying and grading of commodities that are traded But there is an another problem – physical trading has not stopped Much of what is claimed to be online trading is physical trades being entered into the computer after trading hours So great initiatives are fine but clearly someone has to oversee implementation closely And more importantly acknowledge when things are going wrong and do course correction as fast as possible Agriculture is also suffering from misplaced priorities with governments responding in what Gulati calls a reactive manner The example he gives is of the Madhya Pradesh government spending Rs 785 crore on buying onions from farmers because prices crashed but only Rs 7 crore in the whole year on food processing "The government should undertake ‘Operation Veggies’ where farmers will get better prices for certain vegetables The Pradhan MantriFasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and irrigation funds are great moves but things are not moving on the ground fix that Putting food and fertiliser subsidy in DBT will bring biggest savings If the PM wants to transform Indian agriculture he can call ministers of only the BJP states and give them a time frame and a list of things that needs to be done Will any chief minister have the guts to say we can’t do it" If even half the Rs 785 crore had been allotted earlier to supporting food processing in earlier years he rightly points out onion farmers would not have faced any distress Besides food processing units would have given a boost to employment and exports That agriculture needs reforms is something that has been known for several years now – marketing reforms land titling reforms contract law reforms to name a few But that is something that has not been happening There are too many vested interests in agriculture especially in trading And many laws that need to go The Essential Commodities Act is one and Gulati mentions that there is a law that prevents corn from being used to produce ethanol One problem could be that agriculture is a state subject and these need to come on board There has been some progress in this respect with some states implementing the model land leasing law that NITI Aayog drew up But much more needs to happen Gulati does not believe agriculture being a state subject is a problem All the major revolutions in agriculture – Green Revolution the milk revolution and the cotton revolution – were initiated and pushed by the central government he points out And in any case the BJP is in power in 19 states so why can’t it get started there Why indeed Two BJP governments – Madhya Pradesh and Haryana – have started a price deficiency payment scheme (where the government sets a minimum price and pays the farmer the difference if the market prices are lower) but this has seen a significant depressing of prices in the case of urad in Madhya Pradesh So what should the Modi government do in its last year in office Gulati is clear about three things One try out the Amul cooperative model in the case of fruits and vegetables NITI Aayog vice-chairman Rajiv Kumar had told this writer that some pilots are being attempted but implementation needs to be monitored carefully Two implementation of PMFBY and irrigation projects needs to be set right Three input subsidies should be given as direct benefit transfer to farmers directly That will help save money which can be pumped into irrigation He believes Narendra Modi is uniquely placed to get all this done “This is the Modi moment If he gets this right farmers will salute him for 20 years” Hope this government heeds these words Patna: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has recommended a CBI probe into

Party’s would-be finance minister John McDonnell has accepted an invitation for talks at the Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs as it seeks better relations with a political party whose leaders have pilloried bankers John McDonnell speaks at the Labour Party Post-Budget Rally in West Bromwich Britain November 23 2017 REUTERS/Darren StaplesBanks in London had hardly bothered to court Labour since 2015 when it elected the leftist Jeremy Corbyn as its leader – but are taking it more seriously after a strong election in which it deprived the Conservatives of their absolute majority and left Prime Minister Theresa May severely weakened McDonnell’s spokesman said he had accepted Goldman’s invitation “I said of course I would (meet)” McDonnell said in an interview with Bloomberg which first reported news of the plan to meet a top executive “We’ll even make him a cup of tea and throw in some Rich Teas (biscuits) as well” There is clearly work to be done The US investment bank Morgan Stanley has told investors political uncertainty is a bigger threat to Britain than Brexit given the risk of Corbyn winning power and dismantling its free-market economy Under Corbyn and McDonnell Labour has shifted from the centrist pro-business platform of former prime minister Tony Blair to being more interventionist and left-wing – and Corbyn’s response was forthright “Bankers like Morgan Stanley should not run our country but they think they do” he said in a video posted on Twitter on Dec 1 “So when they say we’re a threat they’re right: We’re a threat to a damaging and failed system that is rigged for the few” SHIFT IN TONE But there are also signs of a shift in tone from both sides After Labour’s unexpectedly strong gains with an anti-austerity message in June’s election Barclays Bank Chairman John McFarlane praised Corbyn’s campaign as “bang on” “What people soon realise is how serious we are about tackling some of the long-term economic problems the UK faces” Jonathan Reynolds the Labour party’s envoy for financial services told Reuters on Tuesday “and that we really do welcome their input into our policy development” Nevertheless Labour sees scope to extract more revenue from the City of London home to more banks than any other financial centre London vies with New York for the title of the world’s financial capital and dominates the $51-trillion-a-day global foreign exchange market; financial services contributed 115 percent of total UK government tax receipts in 2016 McDonnell has already met executives from Standard Chartered the London Stock Exchange the City of London Corporation lawyers lobbyists and accountants about Labour’s proposals to expand an existing tax on shares to include trading on other assets such as bonds and derivatives FLEEING TAXES Industry figures say such a tax could exacerbate the impact of Brexit by prompting more businesses to flee London McDonnell also said on Monday that he had held discussions with Royal Bank of Scotland Chief Executive Ross McEwan after Labour said it wanted to break up the state-owned lender into smaller banks with a mandate to serve local areas As a backbencher a decade ago McDonnell attacked Goldman Sachs financiers for giving themselves multi-million pound bonuses at the height of the financial crisis “The people and institutions who have brought us to the brink of recession are rewarding themselves by becoming even more filthy rich” he said In the past McDonnell has said he wants to overthrow capitalism and nationalise banks and praised Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’s “Communist Manifesto” “If we have Corbyn we have Cuba without the sun” Bobby Vedral a London-based partner at Goldman Sachs said recently But others take a more pragmatic view Mark Dowding head of investment grade at BlueBay Asset Management a specialist fixed income investor with $517 billion of assets under management recently met McDonnell “The thing I would observe is the portrayal of individuals such as McDonnell that are verging on the hysterical” he said “In meeting with individuals such as himself we are struck by the fact that there is a degree of thoughtfulness and passion about them that is encouraging” This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Shanghai: China will send 416 athletes to Rio de

mark Defeat unthinkable Allegri is also facing criticism after a mediocre display by Pjanic in front of the Juventus defence but the 49-year-old coach says he expects a reaction "The defeat will help us in the end" Allegri said "Thankfully on Wednesday we have a chance to make amends although Cagliari are a lively strong side so we’ll have to be very focused "We should be raising our concentration levels not lowering them" Defeat to the Sardinians is unthinkable but would be warmly welcomed by a number of sides looking to end Juve’s five-year grip on the championship Inter have been touted as one of Juve’s biggest challengers this season and Sunday’s disciplined compact performance gave an indication of just how far the Nerazzurri can go this season under new coach Frank De Boer Even Allegri admitted: "Inter are one of the contenders for the scudetto" An opening day defeat to Chievo followed by a dour home draw with Palermo are now distant memories and De Boer’s miserable few weeks in the hot seat have made way for plenty of optimism "This result gives us confidence and we needed that as a team" said De Boer who succeeded Roberto Mancini only two weeks before the start of the season "It’s important to move on as a team and today we did that That’s the only way we can get results" Elsewhere Roma host league new boys Crotone who claimed their first point of the season in

Akhileshwar Sahay | Published: April 13 2015 12:00 am Core of railways ought to be kept intact One way forward is to convert part of the board into a holding company Related News Ever since 42 different railway systems were morphed into one the Indian Railways (IR) has been haemorrhaging fast The fabric of the institution may have been ravaged by oft-repeated ailments including “cultural-statis” “over-centralisation” “silo-working” “internecine-feuds” and “rent-seeking” but its soul has been trampled upon by its political masters who treated the railways first as the jagir of the incumbent railway minister and then as dahej to the most raucous coalition partner Unsurprisingly the IR low on technology and productivity and with scant regard for consumers is staring at collapse It has also lost the aura of being the “nation’s lifeline” with dwindling market share — only 30 per cent of freight and 10 per cent of passenger national throughput The task ahead to reverse the collateral damage and jumpstart revival and reform is enormous The time starts now Fortunately there is hope in the air The Narendra Modi government has begun well And Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu gets credit for taking baby steps eschewing populism and staying steadfast to his mantra of “delegate decentralise and deregulate” before “getting longer-term high-quantum lower-cost money to expedite stringing of the nation” He has also done well to rope in experts to design reform measures He inherited the Bibek Debroy committee and added the Sreedharan committee (this writer was part of it) and brought in former CAG Vinod Rai He has also decisively broken through the railway board’s sit-up culture and implemented key recommendations of the Sreedharan committee including delegating works and stores tenders powers to general managers delegating estimate approval and directing board members to inspect inspect and inspect He has set up an internal committee to fast-track the implementation of the final Sreedharan committee report Debroy too has submitted an interim report within the timeframe set by Prabhu who now has to kickstart the tortuous and long-winding reform Sreedharan and Debroy had different tasks but with intersections Their proposed solutions thus have many common strands Prabhu must look at these first before tackling the more complex challenges The Sreedharan and Debroy reports agree that the railway board should set policy the regulator should regulate and the “railway administration” should freely manage the IR Both suggest downsizing the unwieldy and bloated board — Sreedharan says by half and recommends largescale decentralisation and devolution of decision-making powers to GMs and officers in the lower ranks Both want the IR to exit Kolkata Metro and to eventually exit the suburban rail business or run it as a joint venture with the concerned state Both reports insist that only the best and brightest with impeccable integrity be considered for general management positions (DRMs GMs and members) Sreedharan insists that the pathological change-resistant work culture has to go first or else “decentralisation and restructuring will be stillborn” Debroy echoes the same sentiment in the recommendations summary Sreedharan and Debroy differ on many fronts but none more glaring than on the future of production units Debroy prefers bundling one special purpose vehicle to subsume all This has ominous tidings for industrial relations and tax implications Sreedharan prefers a calibrated and customised approach which would be better able to address the need to acquire frontier technology to replace the IR’s dated rolling-stock in a complex market where one size does not fit all With regard to the Debroy committee a few recommendations in the interim report including “accrual-base accounting rationalising zones and divisions calibrated exit from non-core areas (schools colleges and hospitals) in-market competition in freight need to be implemented Some unintended bias (possibly because three senior bureaucrats are in the committee) is likely to go when the final report is prepared The reorganisation of services needs to be discussed widely and the report needs to dive deeper on the mobilisation of resources Debroy’s suggestion to split the IR vertically into two — infrastructure and operations — also calls for a wider debate Such a move will not be the Indian way of reform America runs and reforms railways the American way following the regulation-deregulation paradigm The debt-laden Japanese Railways reformed it the Japanese way using a therapy of vertical integration horizontal separation and part offering on the exchange Debroy’s solutions are part Washington Consensus (popularised by the World Bank in the 1990s) part Thatcherite destruction of British Rail with colossal cost and questionable gain and EU-style vertical-separation So where does one go There are alternatives but the core of the IR ought to be kept intact One possible way forward is to convert part of the railway board into a holding company and morph 17 zonal railways into three or four vertically integrated well-managed entities with the possible unlocking of huge hidden enterprise value A final word The much-maligned IR carries India rather well It is ailing but the treatment must not kill the patient The writer is

Municipal Corporation (BMC) has urged the state government to revise the policy of not granting legal water connections to illegal slums The BMC’s hydraulic department in a letter approved by Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte has made a case for supplying water to all slums irrespective of when they came up citing revenue losses on account of water theft The BMC is planning to take up the matter with the urban development department officials said At present the civic administration supplies water to slums that have come up before January 1 1995 while no water connection is granted to slums that came up after this date Of the 4200 million litres of water that is supplied to the city every day nearly 700 million litres is unaccounted for which means it is either lost to leakages or is stolen The BMC suffers losses worth an average of Rs 400 crore annually due to water theft and illegal connections Even if legal connections are not given to residents of slums that came up after 1995 they have been receiving water either by borrowing or stealing from the supply meant for legitimate consumers said Additional Municipal Commissioner Rajeev Jalota Legalising all water connections would help the BMC to know the exact water consumption he added “A new policy will also help the BMC in better water management and equitable distribution” said Jalota BMC officials said continuous water supply to slumdwellers would also reduce punctures and leakages in water mains which occur due to theft This would also reduce water contamination The BMC supplies over 700 million litres of water daily to a slum population of 65 lakh through 23 lakh metered connections Meanwhile the BMC is also installing new flow meters for equitable distribution of water The mechanical flow meters also help in determining correct water bills to slums which were earlier based on guess work and historical records While the production and supply cost is Rs 1137 per 1000 litres the BMC

an effort to streamline the rush for out-patient consultations at AIIMS the hospital has started a computerised appointment system The new system allows patients to schedule appointments up to a week in advance Dedicated counters for registering doctor appointments and scheduling laboratory tests are functional from 830 am to 330 pm on working days Patients are issued tokens with the time slot and date of the appointment on it The pilot phase of the project began at the Rajkumari Amrit Kaur (RAK) OPD the main general OPD of the hospital a month ago Patients can make appointments to consult specialists of key departments such as medicine gynaecology skin surgery and gastroenterology Dr Deepak Agrawal consultant in neurosurgery and the in-charge of the project said “We were all very sceptical in the beginning We thought appointments would run into months There was also the fear that since this is a government set-up patients might not turn up despite booking appointments” Initial assessments have however shown that the fears were misplaced “We have succeeded in cutting the crowd outside the RAK OPD by half… our analysis shows that only about 50 patients are waiting outside the hospital during peak hours — a near impossibility for AIIMS The trend of patients collecting since wee hours — 2-3 am — has been controlled” Dr Agrawal said The patient intake in different departments in the RAK OPD has increased by 150 per cent to accommodate those with appointments “There is still a 30-40 per cent drop-out rate in scheduled appointments Every department has increased its patient intake by 150 per cent So the medicine department which saw 500 patients a day is now seeing 750 If patients with appointments drop out we take spot appointments” a doctor said About 50 per cent of the total patients seen by a department are already through prior appointments “If this number increases further as we expect it to we will reserve 25 per cent slots for spot appointments” Dr Agrawal said For laboratory appointments time slots are now available for a maximum of two days In laboratories 450 samples are being tested every day including those with appointments “The chaos outside the laboratory has been managed and we have increased our numbers through optimisation of resources” he said Doctors said if the success of the project continues through summer then the appointment system

Redressal Forum has held a bank responsible for wrongful loss caused to a man due to its negligence in blocking a stolen card within reasonable time The complainant V C Madhavan submitted before the forum that he had availed a public sector bank’s credit and debit card services In 2010 when his purse was stolen he lost his card as well and informed the bank of this on the phone as well as in writing requesting that the card be deactivated According to the complainant despite this money was withdrawn from his account in multiple transactions His complaint said the bank had failed to take note of his instructions leading to the loss of a total of Rs 43000 The complainant sent the bank a notice seeking reimbursement and compensation The bank denied the claim and submitted to the forum

redevelop and revive the area have perceptibly morphed in the past decade — first as tragedy then as farce But on Wednesday they mattered little as results came in and it appeared that history would repeat itself The area gave the Congress a rare chance to celebrate and AAP yet another cause to rue Of the seven wards the Congress won four (Delhi Gate Bazar Sita Ram Jama Masjid and Daryaganj) while AAP won two (Ajmeri Gate and Ballimaran) The BJP continued its hold over Chandni Chowk — which it has been winning since 2007 Despite the change in parties little has changed in the walled city over the last 10 years With plans to redevelop the area stagnating buildings stoop threateningly Litter traffic and pedestrians jostled for space as scenes of celebration unfolded in the area Congress flags fluttered freely for the first time since the 2009 Lok Sabha polls But as far as residents were concerned the victory had little to do with faith in the Congress “The Congress is better than AAP in many ways At least we won’t have very high hopes from them They know the system and get the work done” said Mohammad Abid a resident of Jama Masjid The extent to which the performance in the area is a breather for the Congress is perhaps best underscored by the 2013 assembly elections when the party that faced a rout elsewhere held on to seats of Ballimaran Matia Mahal and Chandni Chowk In the 2015 polls it was decimated everywhere But things are different this time explained Mohammad Iqbal a second-hand film poster seller in Daryaganj “Things have changed in the past two years The Modi government was still a year old and we thought AAP could be an alternative for the Congress We were tired of being treated as ‘vote banks’ But AAP failed us The BJP has never done well here” Nowhere is the AAP’s loss and BJP’s gain more apparent than Daryaganj The margin for the Congress’s victory here is a mere 59 and the surprise runner-up was the BJP While Congress hopes to build on their performance residents in the area have only one question “What is going to happen to the plans for MCD revival No one has talked about that The issues were demonetisation corruption and Modi No one
