MINISTRY WATCH: Though the Government has plans to make India a fully digital country, it has not so far set up an independent authority to redress individual telecom complaints. The office of the TRAI is flooded with complaints of wrong billing, an indifferent or poor quality telecom service, and the non-provision of contracted services. The consumer is not motivated to take legal recourse due to time and cost constraints.

COVER STORY: Union Steel Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh and Steel Secretary Aruna Sharma share how the Ministry is leading the sector to a fastpaced growth and striving to give it a massive makeover.

BUREAUCRACY SCAN: All you wanted to know about the appointments, transfers, repatriations and extensions of services of bureaucrats in the recent days.

FDI In Retail For 'Local Goods Only' A Flawed Idea

In the Union Budget for 2016-17, the Finance Minister had announced 100% foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail food. This was subject to the retailer selling only food procured from farmers in India and processed locally. However, guidelines in this regard are yet to be notified. Meanwhile, the Government is reportedly considering a proposal to allow 100% FDI in all goods “manufactured domestically”. The policy will be applicable to both offline (brick-and-mortar retailers) and online (e-commerce companies). The idea is flawed.

Restructuring Entrepreneurship And Employment System

With every passing year, the Skill India Mission is taking steps forward in strengthening its skilling agenda in collaboration with industries, training partners and other stakeholders. Important steps which have brought some groundbreaking changes include the PMKVY scheme and the establishment of multi skill centres, the introduction of vocational programmes at government schools and the implementation of the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) that standardizes the quality of training and connects with job roles in the industry. Based on the NSQF individuals can progress through education and training with multiple entry and exit options since the Framework paves the way for interoperability. A large amount of money and energy has been invested in the skilling and vocational education which in our country is still at the nascent stage. However, much more is desired to give it a sharper edge and greater quality, especially in terms of developing pedagogic procedures and implementation at the ground level.

Helping Women Lean Into The Workplace

Across the globe there is growing awareness of the need to increase gender diversity in the workforce. Corporate India is no exception, and there are some very noteworthy instances of women in leadership roles, but Grant Thornton’s International Business Report in March 2014 actually stated that the proportion of women in senior positions in the Indian workforce got reduced from 19% in 2013 to 14% in 2014. Indian organizations have been rather slow to accept this new situation.

It Takes Hercules To Cleanse Augean Stables, Mr FM

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s this year’s budget speech lacked the fireworks that some might have expected. However, he managed to beat the monotony by raising the issue of political funding and proposing initiatives to cleanse its Augean stables in India. The initiatives do reveal the positive intent of the Government to introduce transparency in a system which presently remains shrouded in clandestine opaqueness. However, the policy proposals of the Finance Minister fail to pass muster and it would not require too much of an insight to pronounce a verdict: “too little and too misdirected”.

Cracking down on dodgy developers

In recent times, the Indian real estate developer community has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. The good news is that the “black sheep” of this family are being brought to book, simultaneously increasing the contrast between unscrupulous operators and transparent, honest builders who have hard-won reputations to protect. The fact that law is coming down heavily on unreliable builders is very positive, as it prevents the entire community from getting maligned. Also, consumers now know that their grievances will be heard and acted upon.
