Making a comeback 13.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
After intense poll campaign over the past two months, the assembly election results across five states highlighted the revival of the main opposition party, the Congress in the Hindi heart-land, while weakening in the North-East; potential strengthening of opposition against BJP in the 2019 general elections; issues around rural/agri and unemployment gaining increased attention from policy makers. Despite the apparent loss for BJP in the state elections, it is early to crystal ball gaze on the general elections in 2019 given, historically, that there is no direct co-relation between assembly election results and overall performance in the ensuing general elections (such as in 2004 or 2009) and the difference in vote shares in the larger states (MP, Rajasthan) between the two national parties is small. Having said that, the focus again shifts to what can be done to revive rural sentiment since the above states were more “rural” in their demographics compared to Gujarat which was the last state won by the ...

Tackling Agrarian Crisis 12.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
Ujjwal K Chowdhury First on August 9 this year and now recently on November 29-30, 2018, peasant organisations held massive demonstrations in the national capital. Earlier, there was a kisan march in Mumbai as well. Issues for the farmers include waiver of loans, subsidy for crops and a mandatory procurement of crops by government, and an acceptance of the MSP-C2+50 percent equation for assessing the minimum price of crops, with C2 being the sum of paid out costs, imputed value of family labour, interest on the value of owned capital assets, rent paid for leased-in land and the rental value of owned land. Farmers’ movements across India became poignant after several instances of atrocities on them. During the last two years of the NDA regime, there have been several cases of firing on farmers: six were killed in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh; seven in Jharkhand; 13 in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu. No action has been taken against the police in any of these cases. As for relief, very little, delayed or none at all ...

At last, no surprises 6.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
Guest Column: Abheek Barua In its final monetary policy meeting of 2018, the RBI decided to keep the policy rate (Repo rate) unchanged at 6.50 per cent. The decision was unanimous (all members voted in favour of hold) and was in line with market expectations. Sharp correction in oil prices since the last MPC meet in October, softening of inflation expectations, and easing of depreciation pressures for the rupee are the main factors that led the RBI to keep the policy rate unchanged. As anticipated, the MPC revised down its inflation forecasts for 2H-FY19, from 3.9-4.5 per cent to 2.7-3.2 per cent. For FY20, the MPC expanded its forecast horizon and provided an inflation estimate of 3.8-4.2 per cent for 1H-FY20. In the October policy, the committee highlighted 4.8 per cent as an estimate for 1Q-FY20. Despite downward revision in its inflation forecasts, the MPC decided to keep its policy stance unchanged at “calibrated tightening”. The MPC highlighted the risk of “sudden reversal” in food prices, ...
