and could have left no one in doubt (Reuters Photo) Top News Dr Raghuram Rajan will lay down the office of Governor Reserve Bank of India on September 4 2016 It is a pity that the government has eased him out at the end of three years when he would have willingly served until September 2018 and if nudged until the government’s term ended in May 2019 Anyway let us put those events behind us Maybe the government will surprise everybody by making an inspired choice I certainly look forward to the announcement which is already overdue What awaits the new Governor To his successor and to the Prime Minister and the government Dr Rajan has left valuable messages Plain English Central Bank governors do not speak in plain English (or French or German or Chinese) They speak in an elliptical language leaving the listeners to make their own interpretations Mr Alan Greenspan a former chairman of the US Fed once famously told the US Congress “Gentlemen since I’ve become a central banker I’ve learned to mumble with great incoherence If I seem unduly clear to you you must have misunderstood what I said” Dr Rajan’s last policy statement made on August 9 2016 was in plain English and could have left no one in doubt The RBI is not yet prepared to cut the policy rate Let me cull out a few important statements from the policy: “Since the statement of June 2016 several developments have clouded the outlook for the global economy Across advanced economies growth in Q2 of 2016 has been slower than anticipated and outlook is still mixed Among emerging market economies activity remains varied World trade remains sluggish in the first half of 2016 Most financial markets did not anticipate the Brexit vote and equities plunged worldwide currency volatility increased and investors herded into safe havens Configuration of risks (In India) the prolonged sluggishness in the capital goods sector is indicative of weak investment demand… Business confidence is also looking up in recent months though the Reserve Bank’s survey for March 2016 suggests that capacity utilisation seasonally adjusted is still weak Retail inflation measured by the headline consumer price index (CPI) rose to a 22-month high in June with a sharp pick-up in momentum overwhelming favourable base effects In the external sector merchandise export growth moved into positive territory in June after 18 months… On the other hand imports continued to decline albeit at a slower pace than in recent months On balance inflation projections as given in the June bi-monthly statement ie of a central trajectory towards 5 per cent by March 2017 with risks tilted to the upside are retained [The chart gives a range of 48 to 64 per cent] In view of this configuration of risks it is appropriate for the Reserve Bank to keep the policy repo rate unchanged at this juncture while awaiting space for policy action” There are of course other statements that highlight the positive indicators such as positive outlook for value-added in agriculture pick-up in industrial orders expansion in the services sector moderate rise in rural wages likely easing in food inflation positive net portfolio inflows and ample liquidity Nevertheless the message to the government is clear: The RBI is awaiting action of the government that will create space for policy action by the RBI Where are the triggers We come back again and again to the absence of triggers to boost the economy In the absence of triggers there is no demand for credit from the manufacturing sector (as admitted by many public sector bank chiefs); there is little greenfield industrial investment; there is no evidence of job creation; and there is no ‘feel’ among the people that the economy is growing at 76 per cent Who has the hand on the wheel For example the Minister of Coal announced that availability of coal is abundant True but why are coal stocks piling up leading to cutback in coal production The Minister of Power claimed that there is no shortage of production of electricity True but at what price is electricity available why are there ‘load shedding’ by distributors and ‘back down’ by power plants and when per capita consumption is low why is there no demand for electricity There are three indicators that must be tracked every month by the government Firstly how many stalled projects have moved forward towards COD (commercial operation date); secondly what is the capacity utilisation at present in each industry; and thirdly how many new factories commenced production and how many new jobs were created The Governor was right when he said that he is awaiting space for policy action What he left unsaid is also pretty clear: it is only when action is taken by the government that the RBI will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Given this situation I think the government is obliged to tell the nation what it intends to do on sluggish demand stalled projects slow credit growth high food inflation depressed manufacturing sector and low job creation so that the RBI under the next Governor and the new Monetary Policy Committee will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Otherwise the blame game will continue without yielding any result The messenger has left a clear message and he has packed his bags Thankfully the potshots at the Governor have by and large stopped In 20 days from today the messenger would have left and only the message will remain Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi

objective of the prime minister: the identification and repeal of archaic laws that bloat up the statute books occasionally conflict with other laws and may hinder governance and growth Ministries had been asked to identify laws that could be nipped and tucked and earlier this month Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had said that 36 superannuated laws had been targeted but more would be identified for culling Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the constitution of a review committee which will preside over the slaughter of pointless acts Most of the flab in our legal tomes is touchingly quaint For instance 43 years after the abolition of privy purses a law still requires police officers to appear bare-headed before royalty The Indian Treasure Trove Act makes it criminal to fail to inform the district collector in writing of the discovery of “treasure” of value exceeding Rs 10 Another law caps tolls charged on cargoes on the Ganga which was an important waterway a century ago Dozens of laws were passed to deal with the fallout of Partition and are now irrelevant There are laws regulating dead industries like the Bengal Indigo Contracts Act The Concurrent List duplicates legislation at the Central and state levels which may not always be useful or even necessary Clearly there’s a lot of room for slash and burn The present government is carrying on a project inherited from the first NDA government which had identified over 1300 laws for removal It is following a principle set by the Supreme Court in the matter of Article 377 which it unfortunately restored to the statute book: laws are ideally made and unmade by government not the judiciary However sporadic commissions and initiatives would serve the purpose erratically Lawmaking is the routine business of government and review for possible repeal should also happen routinely If a review system were in place our statute books would be slimmer And the courts would have been spared the burden of deciding the validity of Article 377 which it had to entertain only because legislatures have not reviewed it since it was passed in 1861 For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App

Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac stood out with “strong” and “outstanding” performances manager Arsene Wenger said after his side beat Chelsea to win the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday Reading too much into the result of the traditional season curtain-raiser is ill-advised but there were positive signs for Arsenal following their 4-1 penalty shootout victory against their London rivals None more so than the performances of Kolasinac whose goal capped a hugely impressive afternoon and record signing Lacazette who showed enough to suggest he could be the lethal striker Arsenal have needed for so long The 26-year-old was not heavily involved but hit the post with a curling effort in the first half and given the eventual service of Mesut Ozil plus dynamism of Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez could flourish in north London “Lacazette is getting stronger every week and today is the first time you see that physically he is ready” a relaxed Wenger told reporters “He still needs to adapt to the intensity of the game but overall in the first half he had some very interesting moments and I believe after what we saw today he will become stronger and stronger “(Kolasinac) came on very well He had a very interesting performance last week and I had a hesitation to play him from the start but when he came he was outstanding “His physicality will make it easier for him to adapt to the Premier League You have players who are pumped up in the gym and players who are born strong — he is the second “His power will play a part but it’s not the only thing We took him because of his attitude You need a combination of talent and attitude and he looks to me as if he has both The Gunners were without a host of players including Ozil Sanchez and Ramsey — all of whom have niggles ahead of their season opener against Leicester City on Friday With a first-team squad of 33 the Gunners are not short of options but Wenger said he will be looking to move some players on before the season gets underway “We will let some players go because too much competition for places is too detrimental Not enough competition for places is detrimental also 33 is too high” the Frenchman said “Today was encouraging but nothing more We want to find a good balance of the confidence we can get out of this game and the urgency that every Premier League game demands “We’ve had some bad starts in the last four years but we’ve had intensity in our games and the preparation that’s needed to be ready so let’s go into the Premier League now with the same discipline the same spirit and let’s see
