of foodgrainsespecially that of rice and wheattwo crops that account for almost half the value of all the crops for which the government sets the MSP When the government raises the MSPthe prices of factors of production involved in the production of MSP products land and labour also go up Is it any surprise that rural wages have gone up so fast as to cause labour shortages in an economy with relatively jobless growth for the last nine years For the last six yearsrural wages have gone up by an average of 16 per cent We dont have reliable data on rural land valuesbut anecdotal data suggest that the price of this factor of production has also been rising faster than most prices in the economy So does this not increase the chances of the Congress getting elected in the rural areas This is mostly why the Congress-led UPA did it increase rural incomeswhere the votes are Howevergiven the state election results of the last few yearsthis strategy seems to have backfired One important reason: a dominantly large share of the expenditure of the poor is on foodand food prices have risen much faster than the average CPI increase of 10 per centresulting in a real wage increase of less than 3 per cent per year at best The UPA answer to high procurement prices in the run-up to the 2009 election was that these prices were being increased because international prices of food were going up Asindeedthey were world food prices (FAO data) increased at an average compounded rate of 67 per cent per annum between 2004 and 2009; UPA procurement prices increased at an average rate of 99 per cent Since 2009in the last four yearsinternational prices of food have risen 73 per cent; UPA 2 price increase per year 93 per cent The link between procurement prices and CPI is very strong theoretically and empirically The table reports the results of a model that relates CPI increase to only one variablethe one-year lagged growth in procurement prices The model is very parsimonious; no fuel prices hereno rupee valueno fiscal deficitno money supplyno repo rateno RBIno purchase of gold and no current account deficit Yet this model explains Indian inflation very well For each 10 per cent rise in previous years procurement pricesthere is a predicted 33 per cent increase in the current year CPI In other wordsif there was a zero rise in procurement prices last yearon an averagethis years CPI inflation would be 46 per cent The estimation is for the period 1978-2007so all of UPA 2 data are out of sample Particularly galling and adventurous and destructive was the UPA-administered procurement price increase of 115 per cent in 2011 and 162 per cent increase in 2012 In 2012the price of rice was increased by 16 per centcoarse cereals by 20 per centsugar by 17 per cent and wheat by 5 per cent The model predicted a 10 per cent increase in CPI in 2013 the actual result 10 percent The average forecasting error for the out of sample six years only 1 per cent per year Six-year CPI inflation in 2008-13 has been the highest since 1950; 10 per cent per annum matching the 101 per cent rate achieved in the six years ending in 1975 For the six years ending in 2012the MSP increase has also been the highest: average of 125 per cent per annum A lag of one year as per the model The UPA will say coincidenceI will say rank stupid populist policy which did not help rural India (except land owning farmers)lost them state elections and has lowered GDP growth far below potentialand below anyones imagination The writer is chairman of Oxus Investmentsan emerging market advisory firmand

More from the world of Entertainment: The actor went on to specify how in acting it is not important to believe in characters you are chosen to play For Khan acting is making others believe in what you are doing irrespective of whether you personally believe in it or not And that is the true hallmark of a great actor Elaborating on how he has portrayed characters onscreen in which he never quite believed in SRK said “It is not your duty to believe in what you’re doing It is your duty to make others believe in what you’re doing as an actor It feels wrong when actors say I don’t believe in this It is not your belief You are an actor You are supposed to make everyone else believe that this art is nice and likeable I don’t have to like it myself” Also read |Rs 500 Rs 1000 notes abolished: Shah

Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWith the latest directive from the Supreme Court Aadhaar an identity project that many suspect has turned into a surveillance mechanis has become legal tangle heightening the public’s concern over its validity A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Kehar and Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul on Monday reiterated that the government cannot press Aadhaar for social welfare schemes However they said the government and its agencies cannot be stopped from seeking Aadhaar cards for non-welfare schemes like opening of bank accounts This is not the first time the Supreme Court has made such an observation The apex court on 15 October 2015 had lifted its earlier restrictions and permitted voluntary use of Aadhar cards in welfare schemes that also included MGNREGA all pension schemes and provident fund besides ambitious flagship programmes like ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna’ of the NDA government PTI reported The Supreme Court in its 2013 order had directed that ‘no person should suffer for not getting the Aadhaar card’ inspite of the fact that some authority had issued a circular making it mandatory While the Supreme Court is clear that enrolling for Aadhaar is not mandatory through Section 7 of the Aadhaar Act passed by Parliament this March the government of India has effectively made Aadhaar enrollment mandatory for receiving any subsidy benefit or service for which expenditure is borne out of the Consolidated Fund of India the ET reported Reuters The latest directive by the court comes at a time when the government is issuing notification after notification in a hurry to make the Aadhaar an integral part of the economic and social system of the country And experts from the left to the right end of political spectrum have raised serious concerns about the move Undermining SC "By making Aadhaar compulsory the government is undermining the SC authority It is unfortunate that the SC has not come down heavily on the government" said Alok Prasanna Kumar an advocate based in Bengaluru "It is not possible to change a SC order by legislation" The reason why the constitution bench heard the Aadhaar case was because it was a constitutional matter considering the scope and extent of privacy guaranteed under the constitution he remarked With its latest observation on Aadhaar the Supreme Court has gone against the Aadhaar Act said Jehangir Gai consumer activist "The Act is for availing government subsidy only" he said For the government to insist that you need to give personal data to avail of subsidy is a intrusion he said adding that the government is ‘supposed’ to work in accordance with the legal framework but is instead flouting it The NDA government enacted the Aaadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Act 2016 in March 2016 in a bid to provide legal sanctity for the system even as the case was being heard in the apex court The government has been proved to be wrong again and again on this issue points out Gopal Krishna of the Citizens Forum for Civil Liberties (CFCL) Earlier in the National Scholarship case and then in the Lokniti Foundation vs Union of India case “The central government had told the Supreme court that it was following the SC’s September 2013 order regarding Aadhaar cards making it not mandatory and yet it is going on about doing just that” he said He feels the government’s attempt is to replace the constitutional guarantees with Aadhaar "There is no need to replace what is granted under the constitution with what the government now purports to give under its Aadhaar scheme” he said What has many worried is the fact that the Supreme Court has not taken action against the government for committing contempt of court by making Aadhaar mandatory for essential services "The court was perfectly clear in its order that Aadhaar cannot be mandatory" said Chinmayi Arun Assistant Professor of Law at National Law University Delhi and Faculty Associate of the Berkman Klein Centre at Harvard University Filing IT returns is mandatory and linking Aadhaar to it makes Aadhaar mandatory Arun pointed out She suggests that the Supreme Court should order the government to desist from linking Aadhaar to all services "If our democratic institutions fail us completely people should protest In the United States there are protests everywhere as there should be in a healthy democracy where the executive ignores the constitution completely” Safety issues For anyone to get an Aadhaar number the details that needs to be submitted include (i) biometric (photograph finger print iris scan) and (ii) demographic (name date of birth address) information There is a wealth of information that is gathered by the government through a thumb print and a scary-looking photograph (with most people remotely resembling their photographs on the Aadhaar card) along with biometric information and one’s bank account too linked to it which can be mined by a cyber criminal Experts say there are no mechanisms in place to secure the biometrics and other information that the individual hands over to the government Shailesh Gandhi former Information Commissioner with the Central Information Commission spoke of not being ‘recognised’ by the system at two private banks where he tried to verify his Aadhaar number "When I asked about the failure of the system to recognise me I was told that only one out of every 15-20 persons are recognised by the system If biometrics do not recognise the individual who has the card it is a very serious problem If you cannot verify an Aadhaar card then you are back to corruption" he said However Gandhi doesn’t agree with concerns about privacy Anita Gurumurthy founding member and executive director ofIT for Change raises a bigger concern of connectivity issues in rural areas "You cannot blame anyone as power outages cannot be made an excuse to not give an individual his/her right share from the PDS system" she said Before undertaking the exercise that links every service to Aadhaar and coercing people to take it or find themselves out of any scheme the government should have taken measures to ‘strengthen’ the ecosystem said Pavan Duggal advocate with the Supreme Court and an authority on cyber security law “I am concerned about the cyber security ramifications with data being stored in a centralized source We do not have a dedicated law on privacy and data protection” said Duggal The information about citizens at the command of the government is a volcano that can burst when used by unscrupulous elements if they get their hand on to the data he said When the Aaadhar was introduced it was done through an act of the executive says Pavan Duggal From 2009 to 2016 no legislation was passed by Parliament that gave legality to Aadhaar It is the lack of data protection laws in the country that worries most citizens They fear misuse of their details that were given for a certain purpose — to avail of bank accounts for IT purposes et al How does one ensure that consent is not abused is the oft-asked question "We have no mechanism in the country currently to take issue of conflict to an authority This poses a deep threat We consent to pay IT for instance and have our files in the public domain but that information cannot be used by companies to sell cars to us or any other product or service" said Gurumurthy No data protection law There is not much clarity with regard to UIDAI and cyber rules and hence the privacy concerns with making it mandatory by the government "Aadhaar deals with biometric information Under the law this is sensitive personal data” contends Duggal The government can go out and assuage people’s fears in this sensitive issue It should assure citizens that the information gathered will not be used against the individual except for instance if the sovereignty of the nation is threatened suggested Duggal Until such exceptions are spelt out there will always be the fear of information being misused or targeted against individuals groups or people by the government itself or any unscrupulous element who are able to lay their hands on it What the government is doing by making Aadhaar mandatory is denying the rights of citizens points out Gopal Krishna of CFCL The Aadhaar is proof of an individual’s residency in India and not of Indian citizenship "I don’t think Arun Jaitley and the government have examined the implementations of the Supreme Court’s directive It is surprising as Jaitley is a lawyer of repute" says he Written by Neha Nigam | New Delhi | Published: April 5 2017 8:51 pm Yeh Hai Mohabbatein 5th April 2017 full episode written
