India's economy is now riding a roller-coaster 24.8.2019
Even the political surgical strike "integrating" Kashmir failed to divert attention from the woes of investors, employees and entrepreneurs — all of whom are stuck with a similar malady: poor returns. Why has the fizz gone out of the economy? Two alternative viewpoints suggest themselves. One is the view fingering "deficiency in structural reforms". The mantra is to liberalise agriculture, land and labour markets. In theory, this is good advice. Assume that all three reforms happen, and agricultural growth increases from three per cent per year to a high of six per cent per year. The net addition to national GDP will be of around one percentage point. This is no small beer even if you are growing at 10 per cent. But at a lower growth rate of five per cent, it significantly boosts growth by 20 per cent.   The problem is that no political economy sensitive plan to implement these reforms has emerged. The BJP"s primary objective remains sustained pan-India political ...

Don't run for jobs after getting degrees: Yogi Adityanath to students 23.8.2019
Gorakhpur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday advised students to play a proactive role in the development of society instead of only running for jobs after getting degrees. The chief minister gave the advice to students while addressing the fourth convocation of Madan Mohan Malaviya University of Technology (MMMUT) here. Adityanath said the convocation ceremony is keeping alive the tradition of 'gurukuls' that motivates students to speak the truth, follow the right path and indulge in self-study, an official release said. Noting that engineering students can play a major role in various fields, he said students must come forward for the successful implementation of the 'har ghar nal' scheme that is aimed at supplying potable water to every household by 2024. "Technological institutes must also come forward to help in implementing pollution control measures and also contribute their expertise in building affordable houses for the underprivileged," he ...

Jagan wants High Court to be set up in Rayalaseema 23.8.2019
Hyderabad: The Sivaramakrishnan Committee did not recommend a specific place to build the AP capital, but said that a capital built between Vijayawada and Guntur would be a wrong decision because it would cause long-term economic and environmental problems. Mr Reddy agrees largely with the panel recommendation that the state be deemed as four zones — northern Andhra, central Andhra, coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema — and the government should decentralise and distribute administration across the state. The Sivaramakrishnan Committee recommended establishing a High Court in Visakhapatnam, a High Court bench at Kurnool or Anantapur, but the CM does not concur to the point, and instead wants to set up the High Court in Rayalaseema. He wants to establish all I-T-related offices and institutions in Visakhapat-nam, all endowments-related offices at the temple city of Tirupati, said sources close to the CM. Interestingly, some promises in the YSR Congress"s and the BJP"s election ...
