Move to replace Anganwadi’s take home ration opposed 19.4.2018 DNA: India
At a time when the union Woman and Child Development (WCD) minister Maneka Gandhi and the WCD department have different opinion over the Take Home Rations (THR) for beneficiaries given at Anganwadi Centres. However, health and nutrition activists have opposed minister’s plans to replace THR with factory made packets. Condemning this move, Right to Food Campaign India, wrote a letter to the WCD minister. The letter has been endorsed by over 170 individuals and networks. “As per reports, the union WCD minister plans to replace take-home rations given at Anganwadi Centres with “energy-dense, factory-made nutrient packets”. Such a move would open doors for private contractors and suppliers, taking control over what is given at Anganwadi Centres in a decentralised manner,” Deepa Sinha of Right to Food Campaign India told DNA. “Such centralised commercial production and distribution is prone to corruption and poor quality.

In its latest Asian Development Outlook (ADO) 2018 report, ADB notes that the dip in growth to 6.6% in FY2017 was driven in part by lingering effects of demonetization, which impacted the informal sector in the first half of FY2017.

The World Bank today forecast a growth rate of 7.3 per cent for India this year and 7.5 per cent for 2019 and 2020, and noted that the country's economy has recovered from the effects of demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax. "Growth is expected to accelerate from 6.7 in 2017 to 7.3 per cent in 2018 and to subsequently stabilise supported by a sustained recovery in private investment and private consumption," the World Bank said in its twice-a-year South Asia Economic Focus. In its report the World Bank said, India should strive to accelerate investments and exports to take advantage of the recovery in global growth. "Every month, the work force increases by 1.3 million people and India must create 8.1 million jobs a year to maintain its employment rate, which has been declining based on employment data analysed from 2005 to 2015, largely due to women leaving the job market," the bank said. In the India section of the report, the bank acknowledged that disruptions from demonetisation and events ...

NITI Aayog bats for more coordination between finance ministry and RBI 16.4.2018 DNA: Top News
There is a need for 'close coordination' between the finance ministry and the Reserve Bank, Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar said today, advocating a loosening of fiscal stance if the central bank tightens monetary policy. "If the RBI tightens the monetary policy to follow its dharma (duty), then we can compensate for that through fiscal policy. There is a need for cooperation, there is a need to have a macro-economic team in our country so that everybody works together," he said while speaking at a book release event here. He said the 3.5 per cent fiscal deficit target, which deviates from the original fiscal consolidation road map, is not "very big" and affirmed that India is better placed on other macro-economic indicators like inflation, forex reserves and the current account gap. In a veiled reference to conflicts between Mint Road and North Block, Kumar said there should not be a "this versus that" in the case of economic policy makers.
