SAARC is dragging India behind, will it ever live to its ideal or it will remain a flogging horse?


The SAARC countries comprises of Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Maldives, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. The instability in SAARC countries, political differences and micro economy haven't helped much in boosting the Indian economy. SAARC countries account for 6.6 % of India's total export for fiscal year 2014-2015.

SAARC has achieved very little in comparison to the other regional organisations. India, the largest economy and the most populous country in the region, is an idealist as well as a realist in its ongoing efforts to revitalize the SAARC as the preeminent forum of regional cooperation and economic integration. Opening university, food bank and disaster management probe might be initially appreciable steps but in the long run it doesn’t create any big step in accelerating the economy of the region.

Can the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amendment Act of 2016 create an impact unlike demonetisation?

"I do not recall anyone in government having said anything about black money being only in the form of cash. That’s the reason the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amendment Act of 2016, covering both moveable and immoveable property, was notified from November 1. To refresh our memories, this was introduced in Lok Sabha in May 2015. To refresh our memories again, the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act was passed in 1988. But successive governments, presumably because they did not want to tread a road paved with good intentions, didn’t frame rules. Only one logical conclusion is possible. To fight elections, you need black money, irrespective of whether it is held in the form of cash or property." Bibek Debroy

Amma was a populist leader thus won the hearts of the masses, but can AIADMK survive without Amma?

AIADMK exists only because of Jayalalitha. There is no evidence of collective leadership or decision making in ADMK. MGR actually did a good thing by making Jaya his protege, without which the party would have died along with him. A split will surely occur, but I don't know if it will be a civilized divorce or a violent partition. DMK will pretty much become the dominant party at least for the next five years. Panneerselvam can't do shit because he, just like the others is just a minion, and is hated by a lot in the party now

Despite a known fact about Pakistans military interference in India, why isn't India backing away from Indus Water Treaty?

We cant do it because we feel so!

Article XII of the treaty says “The provisions of this Treaty, or, the provisions of this Treaty as modified under the provisions of Paragraph (3), shall continue in force until terminated by a duly ratified treaty concluded for that purpose between the two governments.” Still if India wants to go about abrogating it, the country should abide by the 1969 Vienna convention on the law of treaties

"Government gears up to facilitate Aadhar based financial transactions through mobile phones" Is this an unplanned, fast scaled development which can never lead to success?

The encryption and technology used in Aadhar is one of the best in the world, though someone needs to be abreast of new threats and keep the system secure from new cybersecurity threats. Most Aadhar Verification APIs are non biometric two factor using Mobile API. This is just as risky as a Credit Card transaction now, where your credit card details if compromised can still be secure if you use a mobile OTP. Most payment gateways and banks offer 2 factor authentication, and I will request customers to make use of the best technology available to prevent hackers to compromise their data

Surgical strikes on gold is not the best idea

As it is India's December gold imports to halve as cash crunch squeezes demand, this will already have a great impact on Indian currency as the currency depends on gold reserves with a country. Dont you think so?

How effective will the black money surgical strike be

Almost everyone who doesn't have black money is praising the move, but is this sustainable? How do we make sure the issue with black money does not rise up? From what it seems the existing black money might come to a halt but i fail to see the far sightedness in this

I had read it some place on this site only, that irrespective of who comes in power its the bureaucrats which hold the power to actually create an impact, thus even if we don't see a massive change, we need not worry. I doubt it will come anytime soon

As Army rejects the option of withdrawing troops from World's highest Battleground, is 879 soldier's death not a figure to reconsider this question?

The whole point is the precious lives of our soldiers, we need to find a solution rather than forcing brute force mentality

Instead of withdrawing probably more attention needs to be given to the infrastructure and their conditions, however in no way withdrawing is an option. Had you read a little about strategies or past wars you wouldn't have used the words "brute force mentality".

Thats the sad part about this nation, people form ill read opinions

What is your thought in the matter that extreme privatisation should take place in agriculture? Since there is not a lot of income in agriculture thus we should focus on getting the private players in agriculture who can speed us and maximize the profits using machines and automation (like in the rest of the world) and only few of the farmers should be involved in farming. Rest need not migrate to urban areas however can start working in labour intensive places.

This would decrease the % employment in farming and increase the GDP.
