second deteriorating governance (including corruption allegations); and finally the failure to introduce policy regulatory and institutional reforms essential for sustaining growth and employment at its full potential The fundamental objective of any Indian government must be to close the welfare gap of the Indian people with the rest of the world and provide employment opportunities through faster economic growth To take advantage of the demographic dividend generate employment and enhance public welfare the government has to ensure that the economy revives to grow at its long-term growth potential of 8 per cent (or 65 per cent per capita) per annum To help recovery a reversal of the governance failures and regressive tax changes during 2010-13 could help A return to the general philosophy of modernising the tax system by reducing the plethora of state and Central taxes to a few and simplifying these by reducing exemptions/ deductions and reducing marginal rates is imperative This also requires the introduction of a GST or national VAT and the approval of a new tax code To revive growth it is necessary that the government is able to establish the credibility of its intentions Therefore it would be important to improve governance in terms of the speed of decision-making and ensuring the implementation of those decisions In view of the widespread allegations a quick clean-up of the toxic residue left by the alleged scams would also help revive confidence in government Institutional reforms in political systems police and judiciary would help to address the issue of pervasive systemic corruption and restore good governance on a sustainable basis A review of and revisiting a few controversial legal documents would also address the resentment of the larger public towards government policy-making Some of these are: one Right to Education Act — proposed hike in the salary structure of teachers so that thousands of charitable schools (NPO/ NGOs) are not overwhelmed with losses; two National Food Security Act — the focus should be addressing the needs of the genuinely hungry population and wasted stunted malnourished children under five years; three Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act — the laudable objective of fairness in compulsory acquisition of land has been converted into an expansive ecological and social agenda; and four Environment Protection Act which has become a bottleneck to investment because of its sweeping authority and expansive mandate Similarly the need is to revise the Agricultural Produce Marketing Act and Essential Commodities Act which now serve to swell middlemen’s profits instead of helping farmers as originally anticipated There is an urgent need to rein in deficits both fiscal and current account and encourage domestic savings and review fuel and food subsidies Fiscal discipline would allow the RBI to ease monetary policy and stimulate investment and consumer durable demand without fear of increasing non-performing assets or inflation As empirical evidence suggests from cross-country experience to stimulate productivity there is also a need to introduce competition in public-sector monopolies The government could examine converting railways ports and airports into publicly owned and limited companies and set up professional independent regulatory structures to oversee their performance Similarly sale or disinvestment in competitive public-sector units in industry and finance (such as steel airlines hotels machinery banks insurance) could also be considered To sustain higher growth and facilitate trade and commerce it is important to have good infrastructure in both rural and urban areas Therefore a high quality national road network and encouragement to e-commerce would be the most cost effective stimulator of economic development Finally to ensure a healthy population and reduce disease malnutrition and child mortality sanitation projects need to be emphasised A slew of fundamental reforms exploiting the inherent demand within India especially rural can sustain Indian GDP growth at over 8 per cent for the next few decades despite a global slowdown It is not necessary to accomplish all of the listed reforms but it would be essential to outline the broad direction of reforms and establish credibility in implementing them Virmani is former chief economic advisor Government of India and executive director IMF He now heads ChintanLiveorg Singh is RBI chair professor of economics IIM Bangalore Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News and the Ceremonial Guard Battalion.
