Warning for Indian economy, unabated decline may pose serious challenge: Report 15.8.2018 DNA: Money
If the steep decline in the household savings rate -- which has fallen to 16.3 per cent from 23.6 per cent between fiscals 2012 and 2017 -- continues, it may pose a serious challenge to overall growth and the macroeconomic stability, warns a report. The decline was primarily due to the shocks from note-ban and GST implementation, said a report by India Ratings. "The twin policy shock of demonetisation and GST although had economy-wide ramification, it was more pronounced in the case of the household sector. The household savings rates plummeted 153 bps in FY17, while (that) for private corporations fell only 12 bps while savings rate for the public sector increased 37 bps. But the overall impact was a 128 bps decline in the savings rate," India Ratings chief economist D K Pant said in the report. Since the household sector is the largest contributor to savings, the overall savings rate declined to about 30 per cent in FY17, after remaining well above 32 per cent for many years, it said. In FY12, the rate ...

Asian Games: Boxer Vikas Krishan chasing hattrick of medals, says not under pressure 15.8.2018 DNA: India
A medal is not the only thing on accomplished Indian boxer Vikas Krishan 's mind heading into the Asian Games, where a podium finish would ensure his name in the history books for an unparalleled feat. A gold-medallist in 2010, a bronze-winner in 2014, Vikas is aiming to become India's first boxer with three back-to-back Asian Games medals. T he mega-event starts August 18 in the twin Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang. Should he achieve the feat in Jakarta, the 26-year-old will surpass, at least in medal count, a certain legend who went by the name of Hawa Singh and Vijender Singh, who now plies his trade in the professional circuit after being a trailblazer in the amateur arena. Hawa Singh had notched up successive heavyweight gold medals at the 1966 and 1970 Asian Games, a feat unmatched in the history of Indian boxing. Middleweight star Vijender, on the other hand, had claimed a bronze in the 2006 Doha edition before bettering the colour to gold in 2010 Guangzhou. Vikas' 2010 gold came in ...

7th Pay Commission: No hike in minimum pay, change in fitment factor- What next for Central govt employees 15.8.2018 DNA: India
There was a bitter disappointment in store for fifty lakh Central government employees and an equal number of retirees, who have been waiting for a hike in minimum pay and fitment  factor beyond the 7th Pay Commission recommendations . There was lot of speculation that PM  Narendra Modi may give some good news in his last Independence Day budget in this term as PM. Many believed that looking at good monsoon and positive economic factors, a positive announcement may come months before the general elections.  While PM Modi spoke about how Indian economy will be a powerhouse in next three decades, he didn't have any news to offer for the government employees.  Minister of State for Finance P. Radhakrishnan earlier in Lok Sabha had said that the Prime Minister's Narendra Modi government is not planning to give any hike in minimum basic salary beyond the recommendations of the seventh pay commission.  However, the  Haryana government approved pay scale recommendations  of teaching and non-teachings staff at ...

Asian Games 2018: Shooters, wrestlers shoulder India's burden of expectations 15.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
India will be banking largely on their shooters, wrestlers and boxers to deliver gold at the Asian Games in Indonesia to better the 57-medal mark they achieved in Incheon four years ago. India, who struggle at the Olympics despite their population, have done reasonably well in the quadrennial continental event, only twice finishing outside the top eight since hosting the first Asiad in 1951. They won at least 10 golds in each of the last four Games and the Aug 18-Sept. 2 multi-sports competition will be a timely indicator ahead of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. "India was ranked eighth in the last Asian Games and every effort has been made... to ensure we win more medals this time and improve our overall standings," Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra said at a farewell for the athletes. Spearheading India's golden pursuit will be the shooters, who topped the medal tally in this year's Mexico World Cup, finishing ahead of United States and China and be headlined by a trio of talented ...
