country And how do you measure change Well by the swagger of the leaders the adulatory exuberance in streets on foreign land and the gush media’s ability to abandon reason for unabashed chest-thumping As yardsticks go these are odd But that is all we have to judge Narendra Modi’s performance in the last six months The routine metrics are still not in play as the period under assessment is too short Now about the change If it sounds a bit sarcastic well it cannot be helped If the gush media is to be believed we are a global superpower already The proof: India can get bigger noisier crowds on the streets than any other country anywhere in the world; and our television anchors can invite guests from foreign countries to their shows and insult and humiliate them no end Also we are an economic powerhouse which no country can ignore Weren’t they moving around with begging bowls till we allowed them to do business with us Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters All our immediate problems are over That niggle called Pakistan has been silenced forever Stop talking to them; do it long enough so that they forget about terrorists they sponsor to target India and forget Kashmir too Why did everyone think Pakistan was such a complex problem requiring multi-level bilateral engagement to be tackled when such simple solutions were at hand China of course is a joke more hype than substance It has been put in its place India is a certified South Asian superpower now and can play the big brother in the region without qualms Back home the economy is back on the rails UPA’s bugbear for over four years inflation has been tackled well Didn’t it take only six months for the new government to tackle that What the experts won’t tell us though is the role of sharp unexpected dip in crude and commodity prices globally in taming prices – it has yet to reflect in retail prices though This is the windfall UPA 1 enjoyed too The balance of payment matter is taken care of and issues of corruption crony capitalism and black money are off public consciousness India is on the verge of a manufacturing revolution and wholesale structural shift in the economy If the ‘experts’ in the media are to be believed the Golden Age of economic prosperity is already upon us Talk talk and more talk and little action on the ground – that’s what it has been so far Most of the talk has been from the willing trumpeters of the new dispensation while the government itself has been a tad sober about its achievements and targets The latter has been careful about not sending any wrong message to people and has appeared full of good intention and pleasing gestures But its promises have hardly translated into concrete action on the ground That’s where the real challenge for the Narendra Modi government lies Given the intricate nature of issues involved perhaps it is best to allow him more time – two years would be ideal But can the trumpeters be patient No In their worldview bereft of respect for nuance and perspective change is all about making and tweaking laws and taking a grand position on issues These can happen in quick time Watch those panelists on television debates and you’ll get the point In Modi they have created a super leader and imbued him with superhuman attributes They cannot accept that he too like all humans can fail or go wrong or go slow at times Since the other intelligent yardsticks for evaluation of performance become redundant given this backdrop crowd on the streets becomes the easy measure of public approval In some perverse way it’s apt for our dumbed down times In any case crowds on the streets are not known for their patience The first six months of Modi have been about goodwill garnering He has done it ample measure inside the country and on foreign land Now it’s time for him to translate it into concrete deliverables He has proven himself to be a pragmatic leader at least on two fronts foreign affairs and economy – the prime minister keeping a distance from domestic matters is a bit intriguing though He shouldn’t allow the frenzied irrational adulation distract him By: Express News Service | Published: June 11 2015 1:07 am Even asset reconstruction companies that buy bad loans from lenders and then make money by selling them after a turnaround as well as private equity funds have found the going tough Related News It is an encouraging sign that the RBI and government have recognised the extent of the problems in the banking sector and are slowly trying to resolve some of them The latest initiative strategic debt restructuring (SDR) to allow banks to convert debt into equity and take control of companies that have not been able to meet viability milestones or other critical norms even after a loan is restructured is aimed at putting more pressure on promoters and easing the growing burden on banks This option could lead to a change in management and ensure more skin in the game for promoters the RBI believes True this may improve the bargaining power of banks until a strong bankruptcy law comes into force But several structural challenges remain For instance hardly any Indian lender has the management expertise or capability to either run a company that has not turned around even after successive restructuring attempts or to identify and empower new management or a promoter to take over troubled units Even asset reconstruction companies that buy bad loans from lenders and then make money by selling them after a turnaround as well as private equity funds have found the going tough What makes it more difficult is the fact that the debt-equity ratio in many cases of lending to companies is heavily loaded against banks which may prompt promoters of heavily debt-laden companies to welcome such forced changes in ownership and management While technically such a conversion of debt into equity will lower bad loans on the books of banks it may not be a viable option and could be a drag on lenders At a broader level ensuring a pick-up in both investment and consumption demand which will lead to higher utilisation of spare capacities and changes in state-owned banks are far more critical Incremental changes will only delay the pain Unlike the last time when Indian banks were in trouble with total bad loans in double digits well over a decade ago this time around they cannot rely on another virtuous cycle of a secular decline in interest rates which helped them use treasury gains to provide for bad loans and bounce back For the regulator it may also be useful to look at the books of some of the private banks to check if their cleaner balance sheets are a true reflection of their risk management and operational capabilities In short a 360-degree view of the banking sector is called for along with quick correctives For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: February 26 2017 10:31 pm Delhi Pradesh
