tracks are still safe but there is no proper lighting and the tracks are not maintained well Many tracks have potholes As we go towards Nayagaon from PGI that road is completely broken and cycling on

during the scheduled monetary policy review that he would wait and watch how inflation unfolds before taking a call on further interest rate cuts came an RBI survey that showed that retail consumers expect prices to harden further According to the December round of the Inflation Expectations Survey of Households “the proportion of respondents expecting price rise by ‘more than current rate’ for prices in general as well as prices in all product groups (except cost of services) have decreased marginally as compared with previous round of survey [September 2015] for both three-month ahead period and one-year ahead period… However proportion of respondents expecting price rise by ‘similar to current rate’ for prices in general as well as prices in all product groups has increased as compared with previous round of survey for both three-month ahead period and one-year ahead period” Significantly since December 2014 the trend of such household surveys shows a secular hardening of inflation expectations For instance mean one-year ahead inflation expectations have gone up from 93 per cent in December 2014 to 112 per cent in December 2015 Though not the sole or overriding variable on which the RBI bases its decision households’ inflation expectations provide useful directional information on near-term inflationary pressures Higher inflation expectations affect people’s behaviour accordingly and in general lead to central bankers raising interest rates But higher rates are not the ideal prescription for India as it is trying to ramp up investment In fact while the government has been trying to launch one scheme after another to incentivise investment and business activity the data throws up a rather worrying picture According to Care Ratings in the first eight months of the current financial year the value of new investments announced fell by a massive 32 per cent “This decline was witnessed across both the government and private sector” To put it in perspective the reduced investments have come after a 125 basis point rate cut in 2015 The feeble transmission (just about 50 per cent) of rate cuts further shows that interest rates are not the only variable holding back growth recovery in India However under the circumstances rising interest rates are a sure-shot recipe for disaster In the post-policy conference Rajan said “inflation is inertial” That essentially means active steps need to be taken to bring it down because it is unlikely to come down on its own “Most important of all is the budget as well as the implementation of the Pay Commission recommendation” Rajan also said Two aspects are critical in this context One if the government introduces the pay commission award then it must offset it by reducing expenditure somewhere else Two the budget must introduce the structural reforms that propel growth For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Pranab Dhal Samanta |

those opposed to the entry of nuclear power If Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ended his first term on the high of the nuclear dealhe now risks signing off his second innings undoing what he had achieved In other wordsthe very nuclear deal on which he risked his government now stands battered and unviablelost in a legal maze between the fine print and arguments far separated from reality The umpteenth resurrection of the nuclear liability bill issuethis time just before Singhs departure to the USis the latest example The beleaguered government has resorted to its stated position of upholding the lawwithout even making the point that the controversial legal opinion in question had nothing to do with the negotiations with the US-based operatorWestinghouse Not just thatthe subject is also not part of any Cabinet Committee on Security note It must be considered part of UPA 2s growing list of failures that while it set out to bring nuclear power to the countryit has been derailed by disproportionate attention to issues that will count for little in case of a nuclear disaster Regardless of what the fine print saysthe fact is that the liability in such an event rests with the government and only with the government This is not a legal requirementbut a political obligation that cannot be absolved through a clause in the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act And more so in Indias casebecause the operatorNuclear Power Corporation of India Ltdis also a state-owned public sector unit All references to NPCILas operatorcoughing up Rs 1500 crore in damagesis meaningless in the end because the coffers are the same those of the government By the same logicsection 17 of the actwhich provides the operator the right of recourse to the supplier on taking up the burden of liabilitywill be difficult to translate on ground Given the magnitude of such disastersno supplier will ever be in a position to bear the compensation amounta fact that led to the death of the global nuclear industry until it was revived in the 1990s The discussion on reviving nuclear power dwelled on this issue at lengthwith suppliers making it clear they could not be held accountable for any accident or disaster as their association with the product ends after they hand it over to the operator International regulators realised that this was the biggest deterrent to investmentand therefore productionin the sector The International Atomic Energy Agency was the site of several rounds of deliberations on exactly these concerns and finallyit was agreed that the operatornot the supplierwould bear responsibility for liability This is now an established global principle Even Chinawhich is now poised to take a big lead over India in this sectorhas made it clear that the operator is responsible but may exercise a right of recourse based on the provisions of the contract If any partaking of liability has to happenit will be at the contractual level The rationale is that as far as the public is concernedthe operator has to provide the compensation That the operator mayin turnenter into arrangements to share the burden with suppliers or anyone else is not an issue that should concern the victims The Indian act also conveys a similar spiritbut the insistence on making this burden-sharing mandatory has created concerns among commercial suppliers foreign and domestic that it would override any provision in the contract that the companies negotiate with the operator Soshould that negotiating space be shrunk or made meaningless by mandatory legal bars This is an important questionbecause if the government will eventually have to take the lead in case of a disasterregardless of what the law or a contract sayswhy is there this insistence on tying-in suppliers in a way that makes them uncertain of their financial and legal obligations This is where one has to return to the nuclear deal debate The argument is that taxpayer money will be utilised to compensate for a disaster even if the fault lies with a supplier product That companybe it ArevaWestinghouse or even the local generator makershould pay up Having accepted this principleall suppliers interested in doing business in India are planning elaborate insurance arrangements Thenthey will factor this into their cost of per unit power As a resultthe initial bid from Westinghouse is just over Rs 12 per kilowatt hour The charge is back on the taxpayer the only difference is you dont have to wait for a nuclear disaster to pay up Once this happensit feeds into the other argument made during the N-deal debate nuclear power is expensiveand therefore unviable In a circuitous yet effective waythe larger purpose of the nuclear deal stands betrayedserving only current stakeholders by allowing them access to the international nuclear fuel market andperhapsmemberships to some important international scientific bodies The key is to find creative solutionslike adding predictability to suppliers obligations by limiting liability to a time-framejust like guarantee and warranty periods Or the American-style creation of a corpus where even the supplier could be asked to contribute If the purpose of the debate is to provide the best compensation options to victimsseveral innovative ways can be found in the marketplace between the consumeroperator and supplier community But if the purpose is to thwart the entry of nuclear powerthen the fine print of section 17 is the best available legal weapon As for Singhhe will have to miraculously discover political heft to make India swim with the global tide on nuclear energy and resurrect a sinking nuclear deal Elsehis government will have done the otherwondrous task of snatching defeat from the brink of victory [email protected] For all the
