gave its nod to an international power boat racing event slated to be held in the city later this week and said the Maharashtra government should rise above petty disputes and encourage such events A division bench of justices V M Kanade and P R Bora was hearing a plea filed by sporting events company Procam International Pvt Ltd which is organising the motorboat race from March 3 to 5 among seven teams along a 52-km course off the Marine Drive bay in south Mumbai Watch what else is making news: The company needs to construct a temporary jetty or pathway in the sea for the event and some tents or portable cabins on the beach for providing medical aid The firm approached the high court after the city collector and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s high power committee which monitors events and constructions at Girgaum Chowpatty refused to grant permission for the event The company told the court today that it had permissions from the Indian Navy and maritime authorities The court while allowing the petition permitted the company to construct the temporary structure It also said that after the event the company shall remove the structure in two days The high court after hearing the arguments rapped the authorities and said “We would want to know from the chief minister of Maharashtra what was the use of his claims of globalisation and ‘Make in India’ campaigns if his government fails to rise above petty disputes even when an international event of such stature is concerned” Reprimanding the civic body Justice Kanade said “The whole of Mumbai hosts extensive unauthorised construction But one international event and the construction of a temporary structure for just about two days is making the BMC suddenly very conscious of its responsibilities” The court asked the government why should it deprive Mumbai of such an event which is likely to generate tourism “The collector and even the chief minister’s conduct is shocking Even the government of India proposes to construct various sites along the coastline to attract tourists A reputed event like the one in question will not damage Chowpatty and instead help tourism” the bench said The government should take advantage of the beautiful coastline of Maharashtra the judges further said For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Jayati Ghosh | Published: March 2 2016 12:11 am The good news is that the NDA government — after spending more than a year in denial — finally seems to have woken up to the ongoing agrarian crisis and the worsening financial conditions of cultivators Related News In India now there appears to be an inverse relationship between the time finance ministers spend talking about a particular issue in their budget speeches and the amount of money they actually allocate to deal with it This was true of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s budget speeches but incumbent FM Arun Jaitley seems to have gone even further in his florid prose and self-congratulatory tone when declaring measures that ultimately amount to very little Consider agriculture The good news is that the NDA government — after spending more than a year in denial — finally seems to have woken up to the ongoing agrarian crisis and the worsening financial conditions of cultivators So there was much talk of many measures (most of them simply renaming earlier and existing schemes and programmes) that would be directed at the farming community But in terms of actual spending the finance minister essentially resorted to a sleight of hand rather than real increases in allocations Thus while the documents show a significant increase in the ministry of agriculture’s allocation from Rs 22959 crore to Rs 44486 crore a significant chunk of that (Rs 15000 crore) is because the interest subsidy for loans given to farmers which was earlier under the ministry of finance has simply been moved to the ministry of agriculture If that is subtracted (as it should be) the increase is much less impressive as the total spending only increases from 017 per cent of the GDP to 019 per cent — so minor as to have little impact on the actual conditions of farmers Similarly the MGNREGA which until very recently was unloved and much derided by PM Narendra Modi has now been rehabilitated to the point that Jaitley declared he was providing the highest allocation ever to this programme at Rs 38500 crore But this proud claim ignores three important facts First the MGNREGA is by law a demand-driven scheme so the government is duty-bound to provide whatever funds are necessary according to the demand for work Announcing a higher allocation makes it appear that this is the largesse of the minister and the government which is the opposite of what the law states Second the government has been miserly and tardy in providing the funds to the state governments as required so that at present there are more than 14 states in deficit to whom the government owes several thousand crore If this is taken into account the actual amount of the allocation is much less Third even this declared amount falls well short of levels achieved earlier under the UPA amounting to only 025 per cent of the GDP compared to 059 per cent of the GDP in 2009-10 Other social spending has fared even worse The BJP’s electoral manifesto had declared the goal of health for all but the extremely limited attempt at health insurance for BPL families and senior citizens comes nowhere near that Indeed total health spending continues to stagnate such that the budget of the ministry of health and family welfare will remain at the embarrassingly low figure of 024 per cent of the GDP This implies even lower levels of spending for the National Health Mission and hardly any increase in funds available to the systems of public hospitals across the country Meanwhile women and the young continue to be not just neglected but even pushed aside The ICDS has taken a hit with the allocation for the coming fiscal year actually lower (at only Rs 14000 crore) than the Rs 15394 crore that would be spent this year How this crucial system will survive when anganwadi workers and helpers across the country are suffering from late payment and even non-payment of their pathetically small remuneration is anybody’s guess The Centre’s answer would be that now states have more money because of the Finance Commission’s award and so they can take up the slack But here too the Centre has proved adept at clawing back some of this by creating more cesses and surcharges that do not have to be shared with the states rather than increasing tax rates Already in the current year the share of states has declined from the projected 363 per cent of tax revenues to 348 per cent The proposed budget also introduces a variety of cess and surcharges all of which will be retained by the Centre It could also be argued that these limits on spending are necessary to maintain “fiscal discipline” But in fact the economy is actually not doing as well as the hype suggests The rural economy is down investment rates have been falling and employment especially in formal jobs is simply not picking up The massive windfall gains to the Indian economy coming from low oil prices appear to have been wasted as the people still have to suffer high food inflation even as wholesale prices fall Clearly there is need for measures to increase domestic demand by improving wage incomes and possibilities of employment More real spending on agriculture on social sectors and on employment schemes can do this directly — and indirectly through very large multiplier effects Putting more money on roads and railways (which is in itself desirable as long as it is not frittered away on high-speed rail links and other trophy projects) is not an effective substitute and will not generate the much-promised and desperately needed employment Sadly for all of us the government has
