The Income Of The Average Indian Is Significantly Lower Than The Average Income Of India. GDP Growth Rate Is Much Higher Than Employment Growth Rate. Where are we losing the balance?

-Governor Rajan was right in pointing out that India remains one of the largest poor countries on a per capita basis. -He was right to stress the need to remain on the path to sustained growth. -Median Incomes better depict the incomes of an average Indian than the mean incomes. -In 2013, the median income at $ 616 was around 58 percent lower than the mean income or the per capita income at $1455. This is indeed a great cause of worry.

Is Success Of Smart Cities A Function Of Who’s In-Charge?

The way we choose to finance and structure the Smart Cities initiative has direct implications for governance and who holds power in our cities. Their primary objection was that the Smart City projects are to be implemented through Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) rather than entirely through city municipalities. The SPVs, as envisioned by the Ministry of Urban Development, will be run by a full-time CEO and will include representatives of the central government, state government and municipality. This structure, some argue, undermines the authority of locally elected representatives and allows both central and state governments to interfere with decision-making for and execution of vital projects in the city.

With SC Foraying Into Every Area, Have States Simply Stopped Listening

Courts have played ducks and drakes with the constitution in recent times. They should pull back before it is too late. Even as the Supreme Court is having a ball trying to impose its own ideas on how governments should run the country, and even making laws on the legislature’s behalf, it is discovering that few are listening. On Tuesday (19 April), a bench with Justices Gopala Gowda and Arun Mishra discovered that no state had done anything about its orders to demolish religious structures that were encroaching on public spaces and roads. The court threatened to get even tougher.

The North-East: Massive Economic Potential, But How Can It Be Fulfilled?

The first week of April witnessed the first business summit between ASEAN countries with India’s eight states of the region (including Sikkim). North-East India can become a prosperous gateway to India’s future and proposed commercial links with South East Asia. Successive governments of the North Eastern states have steadfastly refused to junk a plethora of Raj-era rules and regulations, for their own vested interests.

Is The Aryan-Dravidian Divide A Political Myth?

Most pure Sanskrit names are found in Tamil Nadu and Sanskrit learning is best preserved in South India. Great Vedantic teachers have come from the south including Swami Dayananda, Swami Chinmayananda and Ramana Maharshi. There is clearly a common culture that goes back many centuries and cannot be divided by Aryan versus Dravidian theories. So is this divide nothing more than a political myth?

Panama Papers Signal Beginning Of End Of Tax Havens?

The publication this week of the Panama Papers, a deep probe into the kind of people with companies incorporated in that tax haven, could, in retrospect, be seen as a turning point in the global fight against tainted money and/or money fleeing taxation in home countries.

Is The Indian Air Force On A Flight Path Of Extinction?

The IAF suffered a major setback in October 2012 when the government agreed to transfer most of its attack helicopters to the Indian Army. There will now be growing pressure on the IAF to transfer air interception and ground support assets to army aviation. The IAF must focus on reversing its declining importance in combat and war rather than demanding silver bullets like the Rafale.

What led to the creation of Vijay Mallya Also Helped Him “Escape”? The Corrupt Eco-System?

Why did Mallya think he could fool around with the system for so long, when Kingfisher stopped flying more than four years ago? Why did Diageo let him go scot-free after claiming that Rs 2,100 crore had been diverted to various Mallya companies? What can be done now that he has flown the coop? Can the Rs 9,000 crore (principal plus interest) owed to banks ever be recovered? Moreover, there are simply too many vested interests who have benefited from Mallya’s moolah. It won’t be easy to prosecute him. The eco-system will fight back and try to help Mallya, for if he trips, he may take them with him.

Is India Equipped For Big Science?

The Government of India (GoI) has been the sole aid for scientific R&D in India. There is a limited gross expenditure on R&D (GERD): below 1 percent of the national GDP - 0.88 percent in 2009 and 0.82 percent in 2012. While India’s geostrategic competitor China increased its R&D investments rapidly in the past decade, India thwarted its own rise in favour of bottom-of-the-pyramid innovation. China has doubled its GERD to around the 2.08 percent GoI has been targeting for the past few years but is yet to reach. The Narendra Modi-led Union Cabinet has set some momentum since 2015, allocating Rs. 1,500 crores for the India-based Neutrino Observatory, Rs. 4.500 crores the National Supercomputing Mission, Rs. 378 crores for the Aditya Mission, and Rs. 1,200 crores for LIGO-India, to be spent over 2017–2020. The Modi administration has also allotted Rs. 44,000 crores for its science and technology ministries and departments in the 2016–17 Union Budget. A substantial amount of this budget will be invested in renewable solar energy R&D, and towards transforming India into a global hub for genomic research.

2017 UP Elections will decide the course of politics thereafter and dominance of parties. Will BJP would push for the division of a state as a poll promise? Or will play communal ball with SP?

With Uttar Pradesh going to polls in 2017, the question in many people’s minds is if the BJP would push for the division of a state as a poll promise, go to the polls with multiple CM candidates and divide the state into smaller states if elected to power. The BJP is also trying hard to win the 2017 UP Assembly elections, with a little help from Dalit voter, it wants to woo non-Jatav, non-Chamar Dalits like the Pasi and Bhar castes, who idolise Suheldev
