1- Don’t tax the tiller

For peasants, the Mughal Empire was fundamentally an extractive state; a protection racket run riot. Typically, the land revenue share of a crop varied between 33% and 50%, depending on fertility, with a further 10-25% paid to the zamindar for his efforts. Its replacement by the East India Company and later the British government provided little respite.

2- GST no panacea

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is being flaunted as the single-biggest economic reform since the economic liberalisation of 1991. Even critics of the tax, who complain about its complex four-slab rate structure, agree that it is a step in the right direction. The primary reason is that it does away with the present system of multiple Central and State taxes, replacing it with a much simpler tax system.

1- Marks and standards (The Hindu)

Our school system needs a better evaluation mechanism for students.

2- The flow of funds in India (The Hindu)

At its heart, capitalism is a financial system. Every entity in the economy, whether an individual, a household, a business, or a state institution faces monetary constraints in its operations and must constantly balance the exigencies of cash inflows and cash outflows. Thus, money flows, including the accumulation of debt and the acquisition of financial assets, are the very lifeblood of the system.

3- Can banks create their own money? (The Hindu)

Banks are commonly viewed as financial institutions that accept deposits from savers and lend them out as loans to borrowers. It is believed that by offering loans at a higher interest rate than what they need to pay depositors, banks make some profit for their shareholders.

4- SEBI targets participatory note norms (The Hindu)

SEBI plans to further tighten norms for issuance of offshore derivative instruments (ODIs) and participatory notes (PNs) as part of its overall effort to reduce the exposure investors take via such instruments in the Indian equity market.

What is Participatory Notes?
P-Notes or Participatory Notes are Overseas Derivative Instruments that have Indian stocks as their underlying assets. They allow foreign investors to buy stocks listed on Indian exchanges without being registered. The instrument gained popularity as FIIs, to avoid the formalities of registering and to remain anonymous, started betting on stocks through this route.

What are govt & regulator’s concerns? The primary reason why P-Notes are worrying is because of the anonymous nature of the instrument as these investors could be beyond the reach of Indian regulators. Further, there is a view that it is being used in money laundering with wealthy Indians, like the promoters of companies, using it to bring back unaccounted funds and to manipulate their stock prices.

5- Ignore the jobs doomsayers (Indian Express)

Only 0.7 per cent and 11 per cent of India’s labour force work in information technology (IT) and manufacturing and yet, many pundits predict that India’s IT and manufacturing employment has peaked — let’s call it the jobs doomsday prediction — because of automation, robots, the immigration backlash and anti-globalisation driven-trade barriers.

6- Raja Mandala: European liaisons (Indian Express)

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s travels this week to Russia, France, Germany and Spain provide an opportunity to recalibrate India’s approach to European geopolitics.

All you wanted to know about PARA

What is it?

The Public Sector Asset Rehabilitation Agency or PARA will be an independent entity that will identify the largest and most vexatious NPA accounts held by banks, and then buy these out from them. By consolidating problem accounts across banks, the PARA is expected to solve two problems.

One, it can effect speedier settlements with borrowers by cutting out individual banks. Two, as a single large lender, it can drive a better bargain with borrowers and take more stringent enforcement action against them.

PARA is expected to raise capital for its buyouts by issuing government securities, tapping the capital markets or receiving a capital infusion from the RBI.

In short, PARA is just a new version of the ‘bad bank’ idea that has been doing the rounds for some time now.

Why is it important?

The stockpile of bad loans has had several ill-effects on the economy at large.

One, with 16.6 per cent of their loan book tied up in stressed assets (bad and doubtful loans), banks have been fighting shy of new lending. This is constraining new investments in projects that can power the economy. Even if the Government were to infuse fresh capital into public sector banks, (Rs 1.8 Lakh cr are required) there’s worry that this may go to write off older bad loans rather than kick-start lending.

Two, public sector banks, which hold over 70 per cent of all deposits, are the worst hit by the bad loan problem. For some of these banks, the provisions for bad loans have already overtaken operating profits, leaving them short of capital to sustain operations.

Three, high NPAs force banks to keep their lending rates high to boost their profits.

Finally, with 40 per cent of the loans stuck with companies who simply do not earn enough profits to service them, simply waiting for the problem to solve itself will not work. This is already telling on private sector investments and GDP growth.

PARA is expected solve all these problems at one stroke, by relieving the banks of their NPAs and expediting ways for the corporate borrowers to settle their debts.

Why should I care?

As a depositor, PARA will mean greater safety of your deposits with the tottering public sector banks. As a taxpayer, it is your money that the Centre uses to recapitalise public sector banks when they indulge in big ticket write-offs. By moving large problem accounts to PARA, the government can separate the capital infusion exercise from the clean-up exercise. PARA can raise money from institutional investors rather than looking only to the Government.

As an honest borrower, bad loans weighing on bank balance sheets mean higher interest costs and slower transmission of RBI rate cuts. Once stressed assets are sold to PARA, the RBI can lean harder on banks to pass on its rate cuts.

What other steps RBI has taken before PARA to take care of bad loan problem?

1- 5/25 Scheme

2- S4A scheme

3- Banks Board Bureau
