The sad truth is out. In its annual report for the year ending March 2003, the Central Bank of India has said that the Indian
economy is in a much worse condition than hitherto believed. If so, what is the use of foreign exchange reserves worth $44 billion
and food stocks of 60 million tonnes ?
Going by the Finance Minister's remarks, it appears that India cannot be an island of growth when the world economy is on a
downward trend. But the CBI report has noted that global recession is only one of the factors for the slowdown in India,
particularly in the external front. The major cause for concern is the prolonged recession in the industry which is yet to show signs
of recovery.
Significantly, when the CBI unfolded its credit policy in April 2003, it painted an optimistic picture, projecting a GDP growth of 6
to 6.5 percent of the fiscal 2003 - 2004. Four months later, the CBI feels that it is better to be discreet than make bold forecasts.
Hence, the conspicuous absence of a revised GDP growth estimate. With economic deceleration continuing into the second year,
the CBI has raised doubts over the Planning Commission's optimism about higher growth in the medium term. How is it possible
to achieve the Tenth Plan objective of 8 Percent GDP unless industry grows at 10 percent ? While the industry grew at 5.6 percent
during 2001-02, it fell below 2 percent in the first Quarter of the current fiscal year (2003-04). By the CBI's own admission, its
earlier projection of 6 to 6.5 percent GDP growth was based on a reversal of industrial slowdown following expectations of a
favorable monsoon (2003). The monsoons have been satisfactory, but the industry has not recovered.
The CBI has called for Labour reforms, exit procedures, bankruptcy laws, PSU reforms etc. But these involve substantive
legislation which can take time since a consensus has to be achieved on those sensitive issues across the political spectrum. The
key to recovery lies in easy action by way of increased public spending. Global recession cannot inhibit the creation of domestic
demand if the government wants to invest in the infrastructure like roads, ports and housing. What is the use of holding huge food
stocks if it cannot be used immediately to create physical assets in rural areas ? The need is for action, not rhetoric.
1. According to the passage, which of the following statements is TRUE ?
a) CBI in its annual report said that slowdown in the Indian economy is largely due to economic recession globally.
b) CBI in its report said that the Indian economy is not so much worse as the economists would like us to believe.
c) The CBI report has noted the major cause for concern is the prolonged recession in the industry, which is yet to show signs
of recovery.
d) In its annual report, the CBI has projected a GDP growth of 6 to 6.5 percent for the fiscal 2003 - 04.
2. According to the passage, ------
a) India cannot be an island of growth when the world economy is on a downward trend.
b) The tenth plan objective of 8 percent GDP growth will be achieved once the industry picks up its growth rate of 10 percent.
c) Indian economy is still substantially agricultural and hence weather dependent.
d) CBI admitted that its earlier projection 6 to 6.5 percent GDP growth was estimated on expectation of a favorable monsoon
and likely reversal of industrial slowdown.
