The 15th 5-Institute Budget Seminar: The COVID-19 Budget: Unpacking the Union Budget 2021-22 | 2021

Seminar | 2021-02-08

The 15th 5-Institute Budget Seminar: The COVID-19 Budget: Unpacking the Union Budget 2021-22

Monday, February 8, 2021, 1800 hours IST

Panellists:

Yamini Aiyar, President and Chief Executive, CPR

Rajat Kathuria, Director and Chief Executive, ICRIER

Nishant Chadha, Fellow and Head-Projects, IDF

Shekhar Shah, Director General, NCAER

Pinaki Chakraborty, Director, NIPFP

The session will be online via Zoom. It will be moderated by Yamini Aiyar.

The Union Budget 2021-22 was presented in Parliament on February 1, 2021 by the Minister of Finance, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman. All eyes were on this COVID-19 Budget as the race between the virus and the vaccine quickens against the backdrop of the worst economic downturn in independent India’s history and the worst the global economy has seen in a century.

The Government of India’s Economic Survey 2020-21, released on January 30, has already pointed to the need for continuing a big fiscal push to grow and sustain demand that could nudge the economy back to a strong, medium-term, growth trajectory. The Survey suggests that this could boost tax revenues and help India get back on to a sustainable fiscal path with debt/GDP declining. What fiscal impulses will the FM have provided in the Union Budget to help India catch up with its 2019-20 real GDP levels and simultaneously cut the headline deficit? How well will the Budget have provided for reviving jobs and incomes, particularly for those at the bottom of the income pyramid, in informal jobs, in high-contact services, and in MSMEs? What direction will the Budget set for the longer-term development prospects for India as it moves through its demographic transition and its society ages? Besides providing for vaccinating close to a billion Indians, what will the Budget point to for improving India’s health and education systems, building on the lessons learnt from the Coronavirus pandemic? How well will it spur the deeper structural reforms needed to overcome the scarring from the pandemic, to improve the investment climate and the ease of doing business, and to boost and sustain India’s medium- and long-term competitiveness in global trade?

The heads of the five institutes, the Centre for Policy Research (CPR), the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), the India Development Foundation (IDF), the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER), and the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP), will once again come together on February 8, 2021 in the Five-Institute Budget Seminar in these difficult Coronavirus times to provide a longer-term development and reform perspective on the 2021-22 Union Budget. Please join Yamini Aiyar at CPR, Nishant Chadha at IDF, Pinaki Chakraborty at NIPFP, Rajat Kathuria at ICRIER, and Shekhar Shah at NCAER for this landmark 15th Five-Institute Budget Seminar. Yamini Aiyar will moderate this Seminar, which each institution organises by rotation: this 15th Seminar is organised by CPR. The Five-Institute Budget Seminar series started in March 2007 under Shekhar Shah’s initiative and guidance.

Webinar talk on Reviving the Distressed Debt Market in India | 2020

Talk | 2020-09-30

Webinar talk on ‘Reviving the Distressed Debt Market in India’

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Time: 3:30 to 4:30 pm (15:30 IST).

Presentation by
Dr. Rohit Prasad, Professor of Economics at Management Development Institute (MDI) and
Mr. Yogesh B. Mathur, Chartered Accountant

Chaired by Prof. Alok Sheel, RBI Chair Professor, ICRIER.

Abstract:

In this paper we build a theoretical model to analyze the gains to trade in the transaction between banks and Asset Reconstruction Companies in the secondary market for NPAs. In particular we focus on three critical variables – the overall value of the deal, the proportion of cash and security receipts used in the transaction; and the relative returns of the default bankruptcy process and the distressed debt market ( which in turn depends on the capital infused in the distressed debt market).

We show that the insights generated from the unit economics can be used to understand trends in the overall market, as well as outcomes of individual transactions. The unit economics are also used to examine the efficacy of the Swiss Challenge auction format currently in use to sell the assets. Finally, we draw inferences for changes required for the market for stressed assets as a whole, not restricted to NPAs alone.

4.05 pm – 4:10 pm: Welcome and Introduction, 

 Dr. Fahad Alturki, Vice President (Research) KAPSARC

4.10 pm to 4.45 pm: Pathways to the transition in a ‘circular carbon economy’ framework

The overarching issue for the globe, irrespective whether in developing or developed countries, would be to identify the role of hydrocarbons in a net-zero carbon future. Managing this transition is crucial for global energy sustainability as is being assessed in the T20 Taskforce on Climate Change and Environment. How to design an energy pathway to achieve that? 

  • Two case studies: India, and Saudi Arabia 
  • Identify common elements that help achieve universal access to clean energy: market design, policy support, regulatory framework. 
  • Acknowledge the diversity in developing countries in governance structures, market conditions and energy resources. 

Speakers (2 speakers for 10 minutes each)

Noura Mansouri , Research Fellow, KAPSARC

Dr. Saon Ray, Senior Fellow, ICRIER

15 minutes Q &A

4.45 pm to 5.20 pm: Governance structures for promoting the transition

The T20 Taskforce on Sustainable Energy, Water and Food Systems seeks to offer recommendations on how to enhance international cooperation, infrastructure and institutions that help to ensure the stability of markets. What is the trans-national support that nation states would need to apply such a framework?  

  • Mechanisms via which lessons from successful transitions that could be transferred between member states. These could be also applied for co-learning processes where countries act jointly on policy issues. 
  • Frameworks for bilateral and group-level cooperation between civil society actors, and private players.
  • Focus on information transfer, capacity building, and financing options. 

Speakers (2 speakers for 10 minutes each)

Dr. Hossa Almutairi, Research Fellow, KAPSARC and Think20's (T20) Sherpa

Dr. Amrita Goldar, Senior Fellow, ICRIER

15 minutes Q &A

Is this pandemic a speed-breaker or an accelerator? • Does this pandemic mimic a peak fossil fuel demand scenario?  

  • Discuss the impact of the pandemic on energy in developing countries.
  • How can the policy response to the pandemic, health and economic, continue to support an energy transition to a net zero world? 

Speakers (2 speakers for 10 minutes each)

The Union Budget 2020-21: Reforms and Development Perspectives | 2020

Seminar | 2020-02-08

The Union Budget 2020-21 will be presented by the Honourable Minister of Finance, Ms. Nirmala Seetharaman on Feb 1 2020. This Union Budget is particularly important since it will be presented at a time when India's growth has slowed to a decadal low and all eyes will be on the FM when she presents her proposals. The Government has in the last few weeks shown intent by convening several diverse groups of stakeholders to gather ideas on the admittedly hard task to nurse the economy back to health. Some ideas will be reflected in the Union Budget, while some might be kept in abeyance until the time is ripe for implementation while others will simply be discarded. To critically examine what is in the Union Budget and what is not, the heads of five leading think tanks in the NCR will come together to share their reflective view and the longer-term implications for the Indian economy.

 

As you perhaps already know, the heads of the 5 institutes (CPR, ICRIER, IDF, NCAER, and NIPFP) first came together in March 2007 to present a reform and development perspective of the Union Budget. And as we have done for the past 13 years, the five institutions will once again gather to present a deeper assessment of the Union Budget 2020-21.

Place: | Venue

The Union Budget 2019-20: Reform and Development Perspectives
 
July 22, 2019
The Imperial, Janpath, Connaught Place, New Delhi
 
The Union Budget in India remains the bellwether of where the government is headed with its economic policies. The 2019-20 Union Budget is particularly important since it suggests how the new government is looking at the next five years. But much of the immediate commentary and eager dialogue on TV and the newspapers takes a narrow, short-term view.

 

As a counter, the executive directors of five of India’s leading economic policy research institutes came together in March 2007 for the first time to present their assessment of the longer term reform and development implications of the Budget.  As we have done for the past 12 years, these five institutions will again come together in 2019 to present their more reflective assessment of the Union Budget 2019-20.

 

Against this backdrop, the heads of the five institutes will share a reflective view of the Union Budget and its longer-term implications for the Indian economy under the leadership of the Modi-led NDA Government, now decisively in its second term.

Seminar on Economic Resilience in a Changing Climate: Tales of Adaptation from Four Indian Cities | 2019

Seminar | 2019-01-04

Economic Resilience in a Changing Climate: Tales of Adaptation from Four Indian Cities

Magnolia, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi

Friday, January 4, 2019

 

Climate change has emerged as a defining issue of our time. Cities, with their dense urban and economic agglomerations and concentrations of human life are especially vulnerable to the pressures of a changing climate. The devastating effects of many recent extreme events from intensive precipitation, to coastal flooding to rising temperatures have vividly underlined these risks. Learning lessons from experiences on the ground, and from history, about possible paths toward more economic and climate resilient cities has never been more urgent.

 

The Seminar marks the culmination of our Rockefeller (ACCCRN) funded project the economic competitiveness of cities in an era of climate change. This project focused on two pressing challenges of the 21st century city: coping with the growing pace of urbanization in countries like India, and the need for existing and emergent cities to adapt to the risks of climate change. Through case studies of four cities, the project traced the complex overlaps between a city’s development and adaptation goals. It explored how everyday development decisions, if made in more climate aware and innovative ways, can foster both climate resilience and inclusive urban economic growth. This seminar is aimed at disseminating our findings and initiating discussions to help inform policy design in this arena.

Data Protection for a Free and Fair Digital Economy

The recently released draft data protection framework recognises the need to balance privacy and a free and fair digital economy. It articulates some of the benefits of big data and encourages its growth. However, it has been argued that compliance with such a framework will require the current business models to change. Additionally, stringent provisions mandating the jurisdiction for processing of personal data, and wide discretion given to the central government, and regulatory authority raise questions of its impact on the second largest online market in the world, home to nearly 500 million active Internet users and business located in it.

The Union Budget 2018-19: Reforms and Development Perspectives | 2018

Seminar | 2018-02-10

The Union Budget in India remains the bellwether of where the government is headed with its economic policies. But much of the immediate commentary and excited dialogue on TV and the newspapers takes a narrow, short-term view. As a counter, the executive directors of five of India’s leading economic policy research institutes came together in March 2007 for the first time to present their assessment of the longer term reform and development implications of the Budget. As we have done for the past 11 years, these five institutions will again come together in 2018 to present their more reflective assessment of the Union Budget 2018-19.

About the Book: Food price spike not only hits the poor in terms of their economic access to sufficient and nutritious food but can also cause social and political instability. The global food price shock of 2007-08 had somewhat similar impact in a number of countries which even lead to food riots in some of the developing countries. The political responses of this price shock varied widely across countries ranging from export controls to building more buffer stocks, expanding public distribution system, increasing food subsidy and increasing allocation to agricultural sector. The book is a compilation of 16 countries case-studies (including India) spread across Africa, Asia, Latin America and developed countries of EU and USA. Experts have dealt in depth the political economic responses to the global food price spike in terms of causes and consequences and from these country-specific case-studies what lessons can be learnt so that future shocks can be dealt with more rationally and at much lower costs, while protecting the economically vulnerable sections of society.

Seminar on Brazil as a Rising Economic Power | 2012

| 2012-10-10

Place: | Venue

Seminar:Brazil as a Rising Economic Power
by Marcos Troyjo (Columbia University)
Place:New Delhi

Abstract
Up until very recently, it was believed Brazil had devised an economic model assembling high growth and social inclusion.

In the past 10 years, Brazil has based its economic expansion on both the appetite of the domestic market for higher consumption levels and income distribution mechanisms that lifted the lives of millions.

Low productivity, poor infrastructure and outdated labour and fiscal laws have however cooled off much of the enthusiasm for Brazil as growth stalled in recent months. Is Brazil really adopting a set of policies that amount to a "development model" to lead the country toward global economic stardom? Or is Brazil just experiencing a cyclical "growth pattern" that now loses momentum? What does the road ahead look like for Latin Americas largest economy? Marcos oyjo will discuss whether Brazil's rise as an economic power can be sustained over time or if the country is destined to fall short of its vast potential.

The Union Budget 2008-09: Reform and Development Perspectives
 
March 12, 2008
ASSOCHAM House, New Delhi
 
In March 2007 four leading Indian economic policy research institutes came together for the first time to present their assessment of the reform and development implications of the Union Budget 2007-08.  The four institutes, ICRIER, IDF, NCAER, and NIPFP joined hands to provide a more reflective view of the Budget, stepping back from the feverish commentary that follows in the days after the Budget speech. For the Union Budget 2008-09, in another first, ICRIER, IDF, NCAER, and NIPFP had joined by the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) to add an explicit political dimension to the assessment of the Budget.

Outlook for Asia: Will the US Slowdown Spoil the Party?
 
 
by Dr. Joshua Felman
Thursday, 21 December, 2006
 
At the seminar on December 21, Dr. Joshua Felman, the Senior Resident Representative for IMF in New Delhi presented the main messages of the recent World Economics Outlook that states that India and China would continue to boom in 2007 and perhaps even in 2008. Although the US economy is likely to slow down by about one percentage point from the current 3.5 per cent, this would not slow down India and China. He said many countries, including the European Union countries and Japan, may also not be impacted. Once housing and food processing in the US show robustness, the overall economy will recover, said Dr. Felman. Dr. Felmans presentation was characterized by an in-depth discussion of household savings behaviour in the US in current years and of the emerging trends in the US housing market. Both these factors, he said, critically impacted the US economic growth.

Interactive Session on Making Globalization Work for India
 
 
by Dr. Joseph Stiglitz
Tuesday, December 19, 2006
 
At an interactive working session organized by ICRIER on Making Globalization Work for India, Dr. Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel prize winner in economics in 2001 and professor at Columbia University, provided a rare insight into how the bilateral, multilateral and WTO plus trade agreements can help India to grow tremendously in global markets. 

Dr. Stiglitz said that though subsidies are not desirable, food importing countries will be worse off if subsidies are eliminated. He also said that developing countries should push for a large development agenda at global trade conferences. If strong measures are taken it would help the Indian agriculture sector to grow at a targeted growth rate of 4 per cent per annum instead of the current growth rate of 2 per cent. 

In his opening remarks, Commerce Minister Mr. Kamal Nath spoke about India's recent growth rate and added that there could be no globalization without globalization in agriculture. And there cannot be globalization in agriculture as long as the structural flaws in that sector remain unaddressed. Other participants in the working session suggested that the developing countries must explore new policy alternatives.

Brainstorming Session on Regional Cooperation and Integration in South Asia
 
 
Wednesday, December 13, 2006
 
A brainstorming session on regional cooperation in South Asia was organized by ICRIER in New Delhi on December 13, 2006 where several experts put forward their perspectives. The session was moderated by Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Director and CE of ICRIER. Initiating the discussion, Mr. Sultan Hafeez Rahman from the Asian Development Bank, underlined the need to not only strengthen the regional economic cooperation between the SAARC countries but also integrating their economic activities through freer trade. The session endorsed the view expressed by a participant that South Asia seems to be focusing more on trading with the rest of the world than within itself. Due to several constraints the transaction costs of trading with neighbours, ironically, are much higher than with other countries. Several problem areas that were identified were: transportation hurdles, tariff and non-tariff barriers, checks on FDI flows, and lack of transparency in liberalization policies among SAARC countries. The experts felt that every country gains out of the open trade, though initially the smaller countries, namely Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, may reap higher gains in the short run. A concerted effort and reciprocity among SAARC countries will help enhance the potential in sectors like energy, health services, climate change and tourism. It was also suggested in this context that each country in the region should champion a particular sector.

Interactive Session - Sir Nicholas Sterns Review of the Economics of Climate Change
 
 
Monday, December 04, 2006
 
Sir Nicholas Stern, head of the U.K. Government Economic Service and former chief economist of the World Bank made a presentation on his report on the economics of climate change on December 4, 2006 in NewDelhi. Dr. Isher Judge Ahluwalia chaired the discussion. Participating in the debate, Professor Stern said that climate change presents a very serious global risk and demands urgent global response. According to him carbon trading is vital because that is the only way the world can work out the market price which, in turn, provides a mechanism to fund clean-up activities. We need to spend 1 per cent of GDP each year to avoid losing 5 to 20 per cent of GDP each year to global warming, said Stern. He cited efforts being made by state governments in the United States, in particular California and the growing awareness in the European Union and their promise to mitigate the problem by 2050. He urged for concerted international, action in this field. 

Professor Joyashree Roy, Professor of Economics and Coordinator of Global Change Programme at Jadavpur University, gave the South Asian perspective. She said that it is important to integrate development policy options with climate policy options. She gave an overview of the impact of climate change and the economic costs on each household. 

Dr. Jyoti Parekh of Integrated Research and Action for Development spoke about mitigation, adoption and adaptation. Professor P.R. Shukla of IIM Ahmedabad argued for better understanding on the issue taking into account the economic costs. Mr. Ajay Mathur, Director General of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, said that almost all the discussion of climate change up to now has been about mitigation - in other words, how to prevent it from happening. He proposed new concepts that could help to integrate an analytical approach, domestic policy action international colle

The Changing Competitiveness Landscape among Emerging Economies: The Role of China and India
 
 
by Professor Bart Van Ark
Thursday November 16, 2006
 
ICRIER organized a lecture by Professor Bart Van Ark, University of Groningen (The Netherlands) entitled The Changing Competitiveness Landscape among Emerging Economies: The Role of China and India. He pointed out that the contribution of productivity growth in GDP in India and China was higher than in the advanced countries. However China was ahead of India in productivity growth as opposed to employment growth in enhancing GDP levels. Dr. Ark also discussed the Global Competitiveness Index of the World Economic Forum, ranking countries on a scale of zero to one hundred and twenty, with zero being the most competitive country. He found a strong if imperfect relationship between labour productivity levels and the global competitiveness index of most emerging economies with the exception of India and China. An important observation in this regard was that India was ahead of China in terms of competitiveness, despite its lower productivity. But he said that large variations in the underlying indicators of competitiveness made productivity a better basis for comparison. He also said that the total factor productivity in China was slowing down primarily due to too much investment relative to GDP. While in India role of investments has increased only slightly and total factor productivity has remained practically unchanged.

Employment and Development: Good Jobs, Bad Jobs
 
 
Monday, November 13, 2006
 
ICRIER organized a lecture by Professor Francois Bourguignon, Chief Economist of the World Bank Unit in South Asia Region, entitled �Employment and Development: Good Jobs, Bad Jobs.� The session was chaired by Mr. Ashwani Kumar, Minister of State for Industrial Policy and Planning. Professor Francois Bourguignon redefined the concepts of employment and unemployment in order to analyse labour market conditions. He said that in some of the fastest growing economies, economic growth was accompanied by a growing inequality in the earnings and household income that prevented the benefits of growth from percolating to all the layers of the society. So it was essential to shift focus from the number of jobs being created to the level of earnings at which they are being employed. In that sense, he said, the unemployment rate and participation rate are not meaningful concepts for analysing the labour market conditions that required the use of extended set of indicators. 

He introduced the concept of �Working Poor� defining it as a person who has a decent level of earnings but supports a large family, with very few of its members participating in the labour force. He cited examples of Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia, where the number of working poor exceeded those unemployed. Thus he highlighted that the unemployment rate was not a good enough indicator of poverty. He defined a �Bad Job� as a low paid job that failed to provide 50% of the median consumption per capita. He added that the low pay threshold being a relative concept was changing overtime. Only in an economy with full employment and good jobs would there be no poverty, he said.

The Rise of China and India: Implications for the United States and the International Order
 
 
Wednesday, October 11, 2006
 
ICRIER and the Asia Society India Centre held a discussion via videoconference on The Rise of China and India: Implications for the United States and the International Order. The survey results from the 2006 Chicago Council on Global Affairs Public Opinion Study were presented on October 11, 2006 from 5:30- 6:15 PM Indian Time at the TERI Videoconference Room, Habitat Centre, New Delhi. 

The Chicago Councils biennial public opinion studies are among the most comprehensive and widely cited surveys of American attitudes towards U.S. foreign policy and international relations. The survey includes polling undertaken by the Chicago Council, in cooperation with Asia Society in the US, China, and India, with parallel surveys carried out by partner organizations in South Korea and Australia. 

The study compares international attitudes on how the emergence of China and India as economic dynamos and claimants to great power status will affect the global economy, international security, and politics. It assesses public opinion in the surveyed countries on a variety of challenges, including international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, conflict in the Middle East, the rising economic and political power of Asia, economic competition from other countries, and threats to energy supplies and the environment. The study also presented Chinese and Indian views on international challenges and opportunities and their respective roles as emerging economic powers.

Dr. Sadiq Ahmed, Sector Director, Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Unit, South Asia Region, World Bank outlined the story of Indian economic growth by dividing it into two phases, the1950- 80 and 1980 onwards. During the second phase, Dr. Ahmed pointed out that the services sector has outdone the manufacturing sector. He also said that wages in the formal manufacturing sector have remained high compared to the informal sector wages. Consequently, employment in the formal manufacturing sector has remained stagnant. According to Dr. Ahmed, proper education, training and improving the health standards of the people will create a better living standard for the underprivileged.

ICRIER jointly with CII
 
Wednesday, October 4, 2006
 
CII and ICRIER organized roundtable discussions with The Global Foundation, Australia on 4 October 2006 at New Delhi in order to explore the ways in which Australia can make a contribution to regional prosperity in the Asia-Pacific in the areas of education, science and technology, especially in the context of key global issues that may engage both Australia and India in the next decade or two. The Global Foundation undertook its second mission to India to continue its evolving Australia-India dialogue in energy, infrastructure, and financial services. Looking forward to opening up discussions and debates with Indian counterparts, think tanks and academia, the Global Foundation participated in the roundtable with CII and ICRIER on the initial topics of education, science and technology and the imperative of the Asia Pacific Regions in these areas. 

The first roundtable focused on the issues related to sustained excellence of standards in knowledge cultures, the role of the government and the private sector in quality education provisioning. If human capital is to be the key driver of economic wealth in the years to come, maintenance of consistent standards of education responsive to changing needs of the market and the economy is imperative. For this, private sector participation in education, commercial investments into R&D and encouragement to small and medium sector firms to innovate in terms of technology are very important. The key global issues likely to be of concern in the Asia Pacific in general and India is particular in the next couple of decades included peace and security, resource accessibility, climate change, water resource management, disease control, pace of globalization envisaged and the regional cooperation between Australia and India envisioned in the context of the failed talks at the Doha Round of the WTO.
