decades three markets — Nehru Place Bikhaji Cama Place and Basant Lok market — were representative of a nascent capital’s international ambitions Now after decades of administrative apathy and inevitable mushrooming of trendier market places have reduced the erstwhile markets to mere landmarks of a time now almost forgotten The DDA hopes to change this with its new refurbishment plan officials said According to officials the three markets will be renovated by the DDA after the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) hands them over to the Centre “The SDMC has handed over the areas to us and work is likely to begin soon The Union Urban Development Ministry has given in-principle approval for all three projects and the DDA has also got no-objection certificates from the corporation” said an official What unites the three markets officials said is that despite being important landmarks their relationship with the city has been nearly forgotten Take for instance the Basant Lok market where India’s first McDonalds opened in 1996 as did one of Delhi’s most beloved bookshops Fact & Fiction While the McDonalds persists the bookshop has closed its shutters The Nehru Place market is dominated by the 1970-constructed district centre designed by the DDA as an instance “utilitarian modernism” Now it is known as one of the largest market in the world for illegally pirated software and goods A 2012 walkability and accessibility audit by Svayam-National Centre for Inclusive Environments said the Bikhaji Cama Place market had become a symbol of “utter disdain for public property and lack of maintenance” As a part of its plan the DDA will repair the facade of the buildings develop piazzas renovate pavements fix toilets and build new ones and build pedestrian pathways “These markets in a way are also the face of our urban spaces So whether the civic body does it or the DDA doesn’t matter” said the official Officials said once the work on the Nehru Place market is completed the DDA would begin work on the other two markets while adding that redevelopment of Basant Lok Market has also been on the anvil for a long time Sources said an allocation of about Rs 80 crore has been made for the three projects with Rs 55 crore for Nehru Place “There are 11 district commercial centres run by DDA We will renovate other markets after this ends as well” the official said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Bhaskar Dutta | Updated: April 17 2014 8:58 am The differential performance of states in implementing

bring rights-based social welfare schemes to the forefront All opinion polls suggest that the UPA has only a few weeks left in office After 10 years as prime minister — this gives him the third position in terms of longevity as head of government after Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi — what is going through Manmohan Singh’s mind as he contemplates retirement from public life What legacy will he look back on with a sense of achievement Perhaps more importantly what will history rate as his government’s biggest accomplishments Singh himself is supposed to have said that he counts the Indo-US nuclear deal as one of his finest achievements This was one of the few occasions when he dug in his heels and refused to cow down despite strong opposition from both within the party and outside However while the nuclear deal was a bitterly controversial issue during the early days of the first UPA government it is debatable whether this will occupy more than a footnote in history books There is little doubt that the distinguishing feature of the UPA’s 10-year rule has been the initiation of legislation incorporating rights-based social welfare measures The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) was the flagship programme of the first UPA government The act provided every rural household the right to 100 days of employment at the prevailing minimum wage in any financial year Subsequently the MGNREGA wage has been revised upwards The strategy of reducing rural poverty through employment generation and simultaneously creating durable assets has had a long history in India What was different about the MGNREGA was that it guaranteed employment as a legal right The food security law passed in September 2013 provides 75 per cent of the rural population and 50 per cent of the urban population the legal right to stipulated quantities of foodgrains at subsidised prices Several state as well as successive Central governments have been providing subsidised food through the public distribution system (PDS) for several decades So like MGNREGA the novel feature of the law was that it endowed the target beneficiaries with a legal right The flip side of the coin was that this put pressure on the government to deliver the promised quantities of food The two acts have been amongst the most important pieces of legislation in several decades Not surprisingly they generated a great deal of heated debate Detractors have labelled them acts of sheer folly and blatantly populist They claim that the “huge” expenditure required to fulfil the government’s commitments under the two acts will eventually spell doom for the Central and state governments They emphasise the leakages associated with such schemes Some also allege that quite apart from the drain on public resources the MGNREGA has impeded growth by pushing up rural wages — the rural poor are no longer willing to work except at significantly higher wages Their economic philosophy is simple (and simplistic) — the only way to eradicate poverty is to press full steam ahead with policies that promote growth Since MGNREGA was enacted several years ago many researchers have conducted analyses and some reports are available in the public domain No one can question the fact that contractors and some government officials siphon off large chunks of funds allocated to the programme However the extent of leakage is not uniform across states Some states perform significantly better than others suggesting that diversion of funds is not endemic to the programme There is also little truth to the allegation that MGNREGA has pushed up rural wages Given the relatively small size of the programme this would be tantamount to the tail wagging the dog Rural wages have indeed gone up — but that is surely due to the fast rate of growth The amount of additional resources required to finance the food security act has also been exaggerated by some critics with one estimate putting it at 3 per cent of GDP The government estimate puts it at Rs 125000 crore at prices prevailing in 2013 This figure is misleading since it also includes expenditure on a couple of related schemes such as the Integrated Child Development Services Since the food subsidy bill before the right to food was passed was around Rs 60000 crore the additional expenditure due to the new law would be roughly Rs 25000 crore This is a minuscule sum compared to the overall size of the Central government’s budget Moreover if subsidies have to be reduced prime candidates must surely be subsidies on items consumed by middle and upper income groups a leading example being LPG cylinders The proponents of rights-based social welfare schemes point out that relying solely on the trickle-down process has seldom worked Even China which has grown at astronomical rates for several decades has a more extensive system of safety nets than India The phenomenal pace of growth in China also suggests that the existence of safety nets does not in itself place any constraint on growth In fact the debate on growth versus redistribution which in recent times has been cast in the media as the “Bhagwati versus Sen” debate is rather sterile One can argue about the relative weights that governments should put on growth-oriented and redistribution-oriented policies But only an extremist would advocate exclusive reliance on one at the cost of the other For instance Jagdish Bhagwati himself rightly points out that governments need money to finance redistributive schemes and only a growing economy generates more tax revenues It is debatable whether the UPA government could have afforded the costs of these two laws if the economy did not grow at a fast pace Fortunately despite the slowdown of the economy after 2008 the Indian economy has witnessed the fastest rate of growth in per capita income during the last decade This has provided the Centre with additional revenue and hence the financial cushion required to bear the cost of the bills The differential performance of states in implementing MGNREGA as well as the PDS emphasises both the need to streamline delivery systems as well as the possibility of doing so What are the best practices Should redistribution be in the form of cash or kind These are the issues that should be debated not whether there should be any redistribution at all Perhaps the UPA needs to be thanked for bringing these issues to the forefront The writer is professor Department of Economics University of Warwick UK For all the
