the population(Illustrations: C R Sasikumar) Related News In their article (‘A higher well-being’ The Indian Express April 29) C Rangarajan and S Mahendra Dev “argue that the actual well-being of the household will be higher than what is indicated by the poverty lines if we take into account public expenditure along with private expenditure” This conclusion does not follow from the analysis and data in the paper Poverty lines were meant to serve essentially two purposes: One identifying those who are deemed poor according to some social norms and given the norms estimating their proportion in the population In other words calculating the so-called head count ratio (HCR) and indicators of the depth of poverty; two given the social objective of eradication of poverty as soon as feasible devising policies towards poverty eradication and monitoring their performance in achieving the social objective The concepts of well-being and happiness had no role in setting the norms The perspective planning division (PPD) of the Planning Commission headed by late Pitambar Pant prepared a 15-year perspective plan (1951-1976) to eradicate poverty in the sense of providing a minimum level of living (MLL) for the entire Indian population — an idea that had already been mooted in 1938 by the national planning committee of the Indian National Congress The PPD appointed an expert committee in 1962 to come up with what from a social perspective would constitute an MLL The committee came up with a bundle of goods and services per capita per month to which each and every Indian household should have access Let us call it the minimum level of living bundle or MLLB It also argued that while a household with an adequate endowment of assets including importantly its arable land and labour should be able to acquire some of the MLLB from the market by spending their income from market returns to its endowments there were others that the expert committee deemed as of such social importance for each household to have that it viewed them as a social obligation of the government to provide to each household either free of cost or at subsidised prices Let us call these components of MLLB as “state provided bundle” or SPB The cost at market prices of the MLLB net of the SPB was the cost to a household out of its own pocket if it were to achieve the MLL All households with adequate endowments will do so and the rest will not It should be noted that the state was obligated to provide the SPB only according to the expert committee There was no legislation mandating the state to provide the SPB Whether it in fact did or not cannot be determined It is natural to call those with inadequate endowments to achieve the MLL as “endowments poor” or simply “poor” and the out of its own pocket cost at market prices of the MLLB net of the SPB as the “endowments poverty line” or the EPL Strictly speaking the “endowments poor” are those whose income from market returns is inadequate to meet the out of pocket costs to achieve the MLL Since the National Sample Survey for valid reasons does not collect data on household income but collects data on its consumption expenditure the latter is used as a proxy for income in order to compare it with the EPL Rangarajan and Dev point out that several committees including the one most recent chaired by Rangarajan have modified the poverty line — some for economic reasons and others in response to ill-informed criticisms of the media particularly during the parliamentary and state elections Given the fact that deflated public expenditure related to the components of the SPB have increased over time as Rangarajan and Dev show how should the increase be reflected in poverty analysis First since no copy of the expert committee’s report is available it is not possible to say whether the committee had in fact proposed the components of the SPB in terms of the quantities of goods and services Had these details been available one could have directly examined whether the quantities (per capita per month per household) the government actually provided were adequate to cover those promised in the SPB There is no information available on the distribution across households at each point of time of the deflated expenditure on the SPB This means that even if we were to use the poverty line each year as the consumption expenditure per capita of the household a purpose for which it was not intended one has to treat the per capita per month per household real government expenditure on the SPB goods and services as income transfer to the household to conclude as Rangarajan and Dev do that the welfare (not necessarily well-being) of a household with poverty line income plus income transfer of the average public expenditure on the SPB goods and services must have gone up Given that neither assumption is warranted one has to conclude their conclusion is not warranted either However there is an alternative Since by definition the expert committee viewed that each household must have access to the goods and services of the MLLB inclusive of the SPB as social norms for the MLL except that the SPB was to be provided by the state one could view the sum of the poverty line expenditure at current prices and the aggregate per capita per household government expenditure on the SPB goods and services as if it is an amended poverty line based on the MLL And if the actual per capita consumption expenditure of a household is below this amended poverty line then it cannot afford the MLL and calculate all the other indicators that one does with a poverty line and leave it at that The writer is Samuel C Park Jr professor of economics emeritus Yale University For all the latest Opinion News

best feeling one can have but it gets better if we consider the fact that we won the final against our arch-rival India and lifted the Champions Trophy We did so at a time when no one gave us any chance of success No one gave us any credit for the hard-work we put in as we prepared for this tournament and we were written-off after our defeat to India in the tournament opener” he further added

budget of the present government took off from the landscape sketched in the 12th Five Year Plan Expansion modernisation and development of railway infrastructure were to be given thrust through 3Ps: Public-Private Partnerships Budget 2016-17 however promises a new horizon on two fronts: overcoming challenges through 3Rs: Reorganising Restructuring and Rejuvenating Indian railways and introducing pillars of strategy including zero-based budgeting Suresh Prabhu Overcoming challenges It is welcoming to see promising intra-government (in terms of Joint Ventures with State governments) inter-ministerial and stakeholder-government partnerships with the Indian Railways to enhance participative governance Procurements worth Rs 50000 crore were undertaken by the railways in the previous year largely through a trial e-procurement platform Already established as the largest e-platform in the country rolling out this platform on pan-India basis could ensure greater transparency in the procurement process Keeping both passenger and freight fares unchanged the budget targets for an optimistic revenue hike of 101% over the last fiscal to be attained by alternate and innovative sources of financing such as raising capital in international markets through the rupee Bond forming joint ventures with states engaging with multilateral and bilateral agencies and developing new frameworks for PPPs New strategies Zero-based budgeting from the ensuing year is intended to enhance accountability and quality of the budgeted spend aligning the process with international best practices and increasing scope of innovation Fresh line items could also be added to the railways without depending on the incremental process The budget mentions maintaining transparency in all its operations: being the largest employer in India all recruitments to be conducted through IT-enabled and paperless platforms in tune with the procurement practices Use of IT-based mechanisms for internal audits has also been announced as a crucial step in culling out inefficiencies and reducing wastages Inclusion Railways being the lifeline of the nation must aim at proving affordable and accessible mode of transportation to the masses – there have been a few encouraging steps for women children senior citizens and other marginalised sections Women may find it more convenient to travel by trains with enhanced safety measures such as introduction of an all-India helpline CCTV surveillance in major stations and reservation of middle bays of coaches and lower berths to pregnant women along with sub-quota of 33% for women in reserved categories For young children the budget announces provision of baby foods and children’s menu in trains and stations on pilot basis The budget enhances the quota for senior citizens in each coach by 50% to about 120 lower berths per train For the common passenger Antyodaya Express and Deen Dayalu coaches would provide unreserved travel over long distances In addition about 390 general unreserved coaches would be added on identified trains on permanent basis Although there seems to be no direct provision in the current budget for farmers they would be able to access a perishable cargo centre and use facilities of a special Kisan Yatra Train The budget seems to have made an effort in bridging the geographical gap of India by paying attentions to connectivity in far-flung areas like North-East Regions Jammu & Kashmir as well as ports and the Dedicated Freight Corridors Overall there is shift in the trend of the budget from the previous years by putting people and employees at the centre A focus has been laid on ‘customers’ by designing a feedback mechanism to improve services of the railways along with implementing the 7th Pay Commission Passenger safety has also been highlighted in lieu of which new stakeholders R&D new measures and recommendation of Kakodkar committee would be implemented which is the need of the hour
