wanting in perusals of “Hinderances”
8 September 2019
The book starts with an index of wanting in Indian infrastructure, trade ,varied sectors their governance issues etc . Authors at an outset have injected a preface on “How to Read this book”, even if one follows this injunction religiously the whole narrative set by the book is lopsided.
The problems mentioned are cliched insofar that authors fail to mention(or realise) that solutions to these “problems” are already being put in place by Govt and for few probs govt had already had started implementing them even before this book came out. Example: book fails to take in govt’s initiative and their benifts in schemes like ayushman Bharat,ujwala,saubhahgya yojana,UDAY,RTE amendments,chap 9 “Deficits and Debt” quotes FRBM committees’s report more than their own identification of impediments or analysis ...inlieu of reading this chap one must read the original FRBM report if the report was the panacea govt needed ;Renewable energy sectors’ so far completed work is also not taken into cognizance either for “partial success” or its misplaced trajectory for time bound completion .
Its a no brainer that all is not in utopian state in Indian economy but the reason stated by authors and for that matter authors’ identification of hinderances lack substance.
The book fails to to take in to considerations the instrumentalities of the federal polity , the demarcations of center state subjects and thus doesn’t analyse not even identifies these hinderances.
Overall objective seems to follow obscurantist identification and analysis of cliched hinderances in order to paint a paralysed if not grim picture of Indian Economy .
U can easily skip this one out !!!
