    edge technology and global markets by acquiring Syngenta Though it is a Chinese company that is looking to acquire Syngenta it is perceived as an attempt by a government looking to address a future problem By acquiring Syngenta China gets access to one of the four dominant producers of genetically modified GM crops with over 7 000 seed varieties Syngenta also has a pipeline of fungicides herbicides and crop protection tools China knows all too well that providing food supply for 1 5 billion people can happen only using technology Beijing is keen to boost farming productivity as it seeks to cut food imports China s problem is that while it accounts for 10 of the world s arable land it has to feed 20 of the world s population The acquisition is also a clear indication that China is now willing to invest in GM crops for the future The Chinese means to solve a persistent problem is far more pragmatic than the Indian government which has recently sought price control on genetically modified Bt cotton seeds That apart no new GM crop has been approved for cultivation after Bt cotton in 2002 It is time India gets its

    with the SNA The latest release just happens to be the first time that such numbers are being reported in their press releases as well The change was long over due Industry wise GDP at factor cost as it was known was not only internationally incompatible but was also a misnomer The international practice is to report industry wise GVA at basic prices not at factor cost Moreover at industry level what we arrive at is GVA not GDP GDP is actually the aggregation of GVA of all industries with net indirect taxes added Production taxes less subsidies when added to factor cost translate to basic prices Other reasons for the change include base year revision in this instance from FY05 to FY12 Base year revision happens every few years when apart from changing the reference year to ensure the numbers reflect the changing structure of the economy there are methodological improvements based on the latest available data The new series incorporates conceptual changes and latest classification systems as recommended by the SNA The use of latest data is evident in the case of the trade sector for instance where NSSO s latest survey data for FY11 instead of NSSO s FY00 data which was used in previous base revision has been used to arrive at the base year numbers The underlying indicator to carry forward trade estimates for the following years has also undergone a change from one based on volume to that based on value Another major change relates to the coverage of data Instead of using the hitherto followed establishment approach in mining and manufacturing sectors the new estimates use the enterprise approach This includes the post manufacturing value added through marketing and other services of say head offices and ancillary activities This part of value added was earlier being captured indirectly in the household sector as the residual component of total value added after deducting the part obtained from the registered value added sourced from ASI Annual Survey of Industries Since ASI follows the establishment approach this method resulted in an underestimation of registered and hence the overall manufacturing value added To overcome this the new manufacturing as well as services GVA also includes the corporate financial statistics data of ministry of corporate affairs MCA to complete the picture Apart from these specific methodological changes have been made in arriving at the GVA estimates at industry or sector level Among those worth mentioning is the change in the mining sector in which value addition from extraction of sand has now been estimated through an indirect method taking it as an input of construction sector Likewise in the construction sector long outdated rates and ratios to estimate its GVA through commodity flow approach have been updated with new ones obtained through a recently conducted study In the financial services sector information from the accounts of stock brokers stock exchanges asset management companies mutual funds and pension funds has also been included Every base year revision goes hand

    for healthcare needs of 9 11 victims and to set up a biometric tracking system over a 10 year period imagine the US reaction if India were to ask US firms to contribute to funding Swachh Bharat And this comes on top of the US not doing much on the totalisation agreement that India has been demanding for a long time Indian IT firms pay US authorities around 1 billion each year in social security payments for employees who do not stay on long enough in the US to be able to benefit from this Given how weak the US case is as this newspaper reported last week the government will do well to as it is planning take the US to the WTO s dispute settlement board DSB and look for a legal resolution to a problem that is not getting settled through bilateral discussion India s track record in the DSB is mixed but it seems a good idea to increase the number of cases filed While India lost to the US in the solar equipment case as well as in the ban on US poultry and eggs it won the case where the US imposed countervailing duties on carbon steel imports from India as well as in the case where shrimp imports from India were banned The EU decision to impose anti dumping duties on bed linen imports too was successfully fought by India Fighting such cases isn t going to be easy and requires a significant step up in the working of the Indian mission at the WTO and more than anything else means using a combination of good legal resources with strong economic competition arguments Indian industry too will have to play its role in helping collect data and helping fashion convincing arguments In the
