His conjecture of the leakage was 85 per centthat isonly 15 per cent of the money meant for the poor actually reached the poor But that was almost 30 years ago Certainlythe situation must have improved since then as India has become richergained more experience and become less corrupt All-India National Sample Surveys have been asking questions about food consumption and the source (PDS or non-PDS) and price of purchase since 1983 Reported below are some statistics from the latest available 2009/10 survey It would be worthwhile if the principal (but not principled) opposition partythe BJPwere to look at these figuresbut I realise that that might be expecting a bit too much According to government accountsit spent Rs 60000 crore (Rs 58500 to be precisebut numbers are rounded up) on the PDS system in 2009/10 The NSS data reveals that the poor received Rs 14000 in the form of subsidised food (primarily wheat and rice) and the non-poor (almost 70 per cent of the populationTendulkar poverty line definition) received Rs 23000 crore An equal amountRs 23000 crorewent for administration of this system So the poor received (14000 divided by 60000) only 23 per cent of the money spent on their behalf Another way to look at the existing PDS programme is to examine the cost of poverty removal Calculations suggest that operation PDS lifted about 30 million out of povertythat isbecause of the food subsidy received by the poor30 million individuals became not-poor In 2009/10the average consumption of the poor was 20 per cent less than the poverty line of approximately Rs 800 per person per month Which means that it took only Rs 160 a monthor Rs 1920 a yearto help the average poor person become non-poor For 30 million such individualsthe expenditure needed wasthereforeRs 5760 crore The government spent exactly 10 times the amount Surelythis money could have been better spent for the poor Surelythis is a statistic that the BJP can use in opposition to the FSB Almost surelythey will not use thisor any other evidenceto object to the bill Because when all is said and donethere is not a rupee difference between the Congress and the BJP A better understanding of the political economy of the BJP and the Congress can be gleaned from the just-concluded BCCI meeting Just notice the following three parallels The BCCI meeting did not conform to any known standards of governance; as the above evidence makes abundantly clearneither does the PDSand nor will the FSB The objective of the BCCI is to provide a non-corrupt environment for cricket and to be above-board in its accounts Both the BJP and the Congress opposed tooth-and-nail submission to Right to Information scrutinyjust like the BCCI Even important officials of the BCCIBJP and Congress are the same Arun Jaitley and Rajeev Shukla at the just-concluded BCCI cover-up seemed like twin brothers protecting the family fortune In the interests of the poorand cricketthere are straightforward solutions At presentIndia spends upwards of Rs 200000 crore on subsidies meant for the poor The poor probably receive no more than a tenth of such subsidies Alert the poor do not drive diesel-powered SUVsand if they cant even access subsidised foodgrainseven god cant help them with the other subsidies Most certainly not with the principled BJP and Congress lot that infest our Parliament Think about it: Rs 200000 crore well targeted at the bottom third of the population will mean Rs 6000 a yearor Rs 16 extra per day for each poor person a near 50 per cent increase in the per day consumption of the poor Certainly worth a try but it wont happenbecause there are too many political partiesand politicianswho profit from the present non-transparent and non-accountable procedures Yet another parallel with

the inefficiency of the banking system" and for taking on the crony capitalists in the country Amid a high-decibel debate in India on whether Rajan will get an extension or not beyond his current term ending this September Zingales said governorship earlier used to be "entrusted to grey bureaucrats that left no impact" "Rajan however is the dream of the new India: young competent and reached the top of the Indian central bank because of his skill not because of his political alignment" he wrote in an article RBI governor Raghuram Rajan APRajan a former Chief Economist of the IMF and an on-leave Professor of Finance at University of Chicago Booth School of Business has been under attack from the ruling party BJPs Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy among others for what they term as the RBI Governors failure to effect necessary interest rate cuts to boost the economy Zingales who is Professor of Finance at the same school and has been Rajan’s co-author as well said a central banker would have a "guaranteed re-confirmation" in any country in the world after managing to reduce "inflation from 11 percent to 5 percent while simultaneously enabling an increase in growth from 5 percent to 8 percent in just three years" While admitting that he may be "positively biased" as Rajan has long been his colleague and co-author Zingales termed the charges as absurd including regarding his nationality as he eulogised the RBI Governor on all fronts "Rajan is also accused due to belonging to the Group of 30 of being part of a group set up to defend the US dominant position in the global economy and to serve the interests of international finance" Zingales said while adding that it was Rajan who in 2005 in front of an enraged Alan Greenspan (then outgoing Chairman of Federal Reserve) denounced the potentially destabilising effects of financial derivatives Pondering over the reasons behind "such anger" targetted at Rajan he said the RBI Governor "is fighting not only inflation but also the inefficiency of the banking system burdened by bad loans" "The Indian banking system is mainly in public hands and was used to finance crony capitalism which has held the country back for too many years So far Indian banks have lived in the illusion that all debtors would pay sooner or later even when borrowers often borrowed from one bank to pay another "As Governor Rajan has rightly decided to force the banks to cut down exposure to their most dubious borrowers even at the cost of bringing out non-performing loans From an economic point of view this is the best time With the country growing at 8 percent these losses can be easily absorbed by the banking system"
