    designed using principles of concurrent engineering where key stakeholders are involved right at the design phase and issues of implementation are taken into consideration upfront No wonder last mile execution of even well designed policies range from shoddy to non existent as involvement of key stakeholders like the collector and her capacity to execute is rarely taken into consideration An implementation plan to make her job easy is also almost never provided Second consider the case of the state irrigation departments where irrigation projects have not overshot deadlines by mere month or years but by decades and are still nowhere near completion In one state BCG found an annual ritual of prioritising a fraction of the projects in the pipeline depending on the amount of money allocated in the budget No wonder therefore that many projects were delayed because every year many from the preceding year were de prioritised and new ones were taken up It does not help that in absence of any MIS or a decent project management system monitoring considered just the amount of money spent at the end of the year to certify project success rather than actual work on the ground A robust criterion for project prioritisation based on extent of completion and impact and supported by a simple traffic light system to monthly monitor progress on the ground can go a long way in driving accountability and accelerating completion The third example of the failure to execute is rooted in the time consuming daily administrative tasks of the executive which leaves very little time to focus on implementation We saw this in state education ministries right from the office of the principal secretary to the block education officers who spent most of their time in performing routine administrative tasks such as managing the large number of department employees including teachers This left them with little time to focus on improving the learning levels in state run schools which should be the most important outcome metric for the education department Systematic use of technology to eliminate manual tasks and reduce anomalies which lead to proliferation of court cases an integrated database and an MIS on outcome metrics supported by process discipline of monthly reviews can go a long way in ensuring execution excellence The final example shows the importance of data analytics in taking the right decisions by the executive team to ensure success When the Right to Food was passed by Parliament it fell on the states public distribution systems to ensure its implementation and one deadline after another posted by the Centre was missed A big challenge for last mile execution was the high percentage of loss making fair price shops FPS a key reason for leakages So in one state the PDS team considered tripling the commission to the FPS shop owners to give a heft to their profitability till a simple analysis which any private retailer would do routinely showed that simply increasing the commission would increase the proportion of profitable

  • Challenges before the competition panel | The Financial Express
    produced anti competitive effects that harmed consumers CCI rejected the complaint because it did not find any harm In the digital cinema case CCI rejected claims by a digital cinema provider that a consortium of Hollywood studios had abused their dominance by forcing it to comply with certain technology standards CCI found that these standards had actually improved the quality and security of movie exhibition This benefited rather than harmed consumers Thus no enforcement action was judged necessary In the Uber case CCI rejected that Uber had a dominant position in particular by discarding a dubious market report submitted by a slower moving competitor In doing so it affirmed that disruptive innovation and resultant competition and innovation are good for consumers In the Air India case CCI recognised that abuses of dominance are rare where consumers have choice and exercise that choice even where the exercise of choice results in the favouring of an incumbent supplier These precedents exhibit a practice of clearly identifying and evaluating the potential harmful effects of each case They show CCI is taking careful and strategic decisions on which cases to pursue with the objectives of consumers as opposed to competitors in mind And they demonstrate that CCI is not necessarily attracted to cases by the name or public profile of the investigated party These factors are important to CCI s continued success and should be borne in mind for the future handling of high profile cases such as those involving Google which concern high technology markets where vigorous competition and disruptive effects through the process of continuous innovation is commonplace Improving due process and procedure should also be high among chairman Sikri s priorities especially in light of the recent guidelines provided by COMPAT to CCI in the cement BCCI and Hiranandani cases There is sometimes a difficult balance to be drawn between deterrence achieved through swift decisions and procedural fairness In combinations the balance likely leans towards speed whereas in investigations the balance leans towards procedural fairness That is because the deterrence value of anti trust decisions is significantly weakened if they are routinely overturned in appellate courts It may have been CCI s intention to avoid turning its process into a legalistic or quasi judicial one Unfortunately for CCI given its draconian powers the process is necessarily quasi judicial even quasi criminal So CCI will now have to focus on ensuring that its procedure meets that standard even if that means cases take longer Finally chairman Sikri should maintain the goals of sponsoring innovation and investment in line with the government s objectives and the interest of consumers His aim should be to ensure that CCI s interventions are targeted proportionate and based on a solid understanding of the facts and products at issue Ultimately CCI will have a role in fostering market developments such as in services or information technology and must not stifle success and disruptive innovation Under Chawla s leadership CCI has made significant progress I have no doubt

  • Editorial: Clear net neutrality maze | The Financial Express
    the future investment requirements are much higher now amortisation costs for Bharti Airtel have doubled in the last one year to Rs 768 crore in the December 2015 quarter That of course is why the telcos were thrilled when the department of telecommunications DoT sub committee on net neutrality opined the puritan view of Net Neutrality has practical limitations and it does not work in the real world After all with 40 of Indians still without a mobile phone and 88 without any data services if the telco profits are hit the future rollout of data services is going to be hit badly Indeed if the Trai does come out against zero rating and services like Free Basics as its preliminary comments suggest it might the access will be further limited While ensuring greater internet access to all Indians is really a concern the government needs to address especially in the context of the prime minister s Digital India initiative the telcos need to ensure there is perfect clarity on net neutrality before the next auction takes place Even when the net neutrality issue came to the fore the last time several MPs in favour of pure net neutrality pointed out that the telcos were short sighted in bidding as much as they did since it was clear that OTT voice apps would eat into their revenues more so when internet speeds improved as they are now The government has so far been talking in various voices on pure net neutrality that is a WhatsApp doesn t need a separate license to offer voice calls while the communications minister has said he is in favour of net neutrality the DoT sub committee had something quite different to say The short point is that with the DoT sub committee s report not binding on the government telcos need to insist the government come out with its policy statement since that will have a bearing on what the real value of the spectrum they are bidding for is going to be First Published on February 5 2016 12 12 am Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India

  • Impact of GDP growth on income inequality | The Financial Express
    shifts have positive implications on several levels of household well being but at the same time these will pose many challenges too The need to address some of these issues can be evidenced from the multiple schemes that have been initiated by the government Take the example of the Jan Dhan Yojana which reportedly led to the opening of more than 140 million bank accounts for the unbanked masses and was packaged along with the RuPay card an accident insurance cover and overdraft facility of Rs 5 000 Clearly this is a step in the direction towards the larger objective of financial inclusion of the poorest of the poor but the challenge lies in actually turning these new bank account holders into active banking consumers Many a times a target driven tactical campaign is needed to achieve certain outcomes but in order to achieve sustainable and measurable results in the long term there has to be a process in place Gathering information tracking progress and achieving key outcomes are all necessary steps in the creation of an enabling and effective ecosystem The government s plan to link deliveries of subsidies with Aadhaar cards and banks is a step in the right direction and is bound to have several pay offs tagging bank accounts of those who are deserving of subsidies would protect against leakages and also introduce a whole new generation of bottom of the pyramid consumers to banking services As income levels go up there are also greater opportunities to be harnessed Lack of affordable healthcare services for the bottom of the pyramid groups is a case in point Even though we have made great strides in the eradication of polio and small pox we seem incapable of being able to provide our rural populations with universal healthcare Or even ensure that the network of primary health centres and public hospitals are able to provide an acceptable quality of healthcare services that are within accessible reach to all rural Indians It is indeed major concern that only 6 of the smallest villages in India have access to primary health centres as against 60 of the largest villages Again only 11 small villages have a pharmacy or a chemist shop The push towards entrepreneurship via the government s Start up India programme has great potential particularly in terms of harnessing the power of the youth In the absence of employment opportunities and the pressing need to create 10 million new jobs every year to absorb those who are being added to the workforce the programme can be effectively used to build an army of young entrepreneurs who generate sustainable employment for themselves and others Media reports indicate that many such enterprises have already taken off in the areas of rural transport agro based industries health services etc Young urban entrepreneurs are designing products and services to meet the needs of rural consumers More importantly the Start up India programme offers a great opportunity to develop rural entrepreneurship and provide new
