Why else are we goi

Why else are we going through the process again? It is difficult to find a coherent reason for the present exercise Watching the massive lines of harried citizens on television and reading stories of cash running out in banks and ATMs and of traders downing shutters because of elusive customers one can’t help but wonder at the futility of it all The Prime Minister assured the nation that the transition will be smooth – there might be difficulties at the beginning he said but it’s for a larger cause The teething problems however are spiraling into something more macabre There have been deaths which have been reported due to cash crunch within the first week of demonetisation Three of these reported deaths were due to the patients’ inability to receive medical services in time since they couldn’t be paid for Though 86 per cent of the currency (in value) is being sucked out of the system so far there doesn’t seem to be timely and adequate transfusion and circulation of cash It is hard not to ask how the government expects small and micro enterprises and the common man to survive Rural India is taking a big hit In villages there are few bank branches and even fewer ATMs Cash circulation is worse there Landless labourers and small/marginal farmers don’t have money; families are going to bed on empty stomachs For instance Malegaon village in Nanded district has only one ATM which reportedly stopped working immediately after Modi announced that the current Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes were illegal Villages like Malegaon are heavily agrarian-based therefore almost 80 per cent of the monetary exchange is based on cash The banks (only two) in the village inhabiting 10000 people are circulating Rs 2000 notes which is barely helping the farmers who don’t have small change to return as balance Their work has come to a standstill Subsequently there has been a staggering fall in the price of the goods and grains that farmers sell In Malegaon traders have begun taking advantage robbing farmers by offering to pay Rs 2500 per 100 kgs of soybean rather than its original price of Rs 2800 Those who’re desperate are unfortunately taking whatever money is coming their way It’s a pity that the government is unable to discern what is clearly a straightforward example of a hurriedly thought poorly planned and shoddily executed strategy Three days ago Finance Minister Arun Jaitely announced that people would have to wait for 21 days longer before the ATMs would begin functioning properly since the ATMs weren’t calibrated to dispense new-sized notes The government should have ensured in advance that new ATMs were privately designed built (perhaps at the same time new notes were being produced) and replaced as soon as the old notes were scrapped People are facing tremendous problems and these problems are escalating each day Would the step to completely weed out black money work considering there are reports that people are already finding loopholes in the system and figuring a way around ban The price of gold for instance has scaled up Ten grams of gold which was earlier priced at Rs 30000 is now being sold by jewelers at Rs 34000-35000 Jewellery shops are willingly accepting old currency notes and since purchases made below Rs 2 lakh don’t require a PAN card the fear of traceability is put to rest For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Ritu Sarin | New Delhi | Updated: August 26 2016 7:18 am Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar Top News DEFENCE Minister Manohar Parrikar has told The Indian Express that just a few days ago he has cleared the final draft of the new defence blacklisting policy under which no company should face such an action without clear evidence of corruption or criminality His remarks came close on the heels of the Scorpene leak which French company DCNS says it is probing Read |Scorpene leak: Navy orders internal audit contacts French govt “Companies in future will not be indiscriminately blacklisted unless the charges against them are criminal in nature or they have committed a crime like stealing documents or paying a bribe Even the fact that allegations against a defence supplier are being examined by the CBI will not be a reason for blacklisting since the CBI can take 10 years to examine and finalise a case And at the end of it all the CBI may find the case is not strong enough for conviction” said Parrikar Read | Scorpene submarine ‘unclassified’ documents stolen in 2011 not leaked: French govt source The Minister said that fresh “guidelines” for blacklisting defence firms were in a brief policy document which was not even 10 pages long and had been sent by the MoD to the Ministry of Law for clearance He added “In it we have listed various pre-blacklisting stages such as the imposition of fines and penalties which would have been stated either in the contract signed with the company or the integrity pact signed by them Other conditions are also stipulated in the RFP (Request For Proposal) A violation of the integrity pact or the presence of an undisclosed consultant for instance could invoke a pre-fixed penalty but will not result in the company being blacklisted” Watch video: Secret Data On India’s Scorpene Submarines Leaked He said he has been vetting all important defence contracts “What I can say clearly is that nobody can influence my decisions and that is why at least from the top echelons I know the contracts we sign are clean There is no element of mistrust India always benefits from purchase of weapons and equipment in a multi-vendor situation and that is why in the new policy we have made clear criminality alone the basis for any future blacklisting There is no point of putting deals on hold and slowing down defence procurement” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe crowning of the Belvedere boys as athletic champions reminded a modest Dick Cremins SJ of
