  • Intra-regional Development Disparities: Virtual Regions Strategy for
           Development of Tribal Communities and Water-stressed Regions in
           Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sheela Bhide, Vidyanand Ranade, Kiran Kulkarni
      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      The long persistence of evident economic divergences between regions often results in resentment and political discord among the people of the perceived ‘backwardness’ of the areas and the more economically advanced and prosperous areas. There are certain facets of natural resource endowments in which a political–administrative unit such as a district does not make much economic logic. Time has come to adopt new strategies that attempt to transcend the district boundaries for the planning and implementation of development programmes. In spite of the government’s efforts over several decades, it is observed that the economic disparities between regions continue to be wide. Adopting a ‘backward region’ instead of a ‘district’ to plan schemes for the development of an entire ‘backward region’ may cover more than one district. In this article, the possibility of a regional approach to planning the development of the clearly identifiable tribal areas and of the water-stressed areas is examined for three neighbouring states in India, namely Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. As per population share of 9% in the state of Maharashtra, the tribal sector gets 9% of the total state budget annually. For a better planning process, systematic convergence and integrated planning would further help. There is still a long way to go for the tribal population to make informed decisions on development issues, which affect their lives. Contextualised education can serve as an effective tool for empowerment in the long run. In the state of Andhra Pradesh, the Integrated Tribal Development Agencies (ITDAs) prepare their development plans for their own district jurisdictions and not for the contiguous tribal region cutting across several districts, and also cutting across the state borders. Development projects like irrigation check dams were generally not taken up with the involvement of the local tribals. Strategies for the development of agriculture and horticulture in these areas were successful when the traditional agriculture practices of the tribal communities were taken into account. Problems faced by the tribal communities include inadequate education facilities, lack of easy access to modern medical facilities, inadequate connectivity and non-availability of a reliable supply of electricity. In the state of Maharashtra creation of a mosaic of different sizes of Water Resource Department (WRD) structures was the result of inevitable response to the dynamics of changes in the water demand pattern and has improved the water stress situation. Inter-basin projects for lifting and transferring surplus water have been investigated but have not been taken up so far due to prohibitive cost. To address regional imbalance in water resource development, physical and financial terms were estimated, duly stating mechanism for redressal of the imbalance, but in practice, the implementation did not materialise. Big hydroelectric power projects were built diverting river water, but now, people are arguing that there could be a substitute to electricity but not to water. Increase in competing water demands for non-irrigation purposes and non-treatment of urban effluents gave rise to urban–rural conflicts, and water stress had been created in an area where there were none earlier. This underlines the dynamics of changes in the demands for water and consequent water stress patterns. Pace of groundwater (GW) exploitation increased rapidly and resulted in overexploitation of some watersheds, especially in the drought-prone zone. Water stress situation could be mitigated to a certain extent in such watersheds by augmenting GW by means of watershed development works. A large part of the state of Telangana lies on the elevated Deccan Plateau and faces water stress. This region is contiguous with the water-stressed region of Marathwada in Maharashtra. The Telangana government took up on priority a programme to revive the old tanks, which had been constructed in the past in the Deccan Plateau region and which had fallen into disuse. If the ambitious lift irrigation project is completed without further delay, it will be a significant achievement. From this study of the tribal development strategies adopted in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, it is observed that several gaps and challenges continue to persist, implying revisiting the fundamental approaches and planning processes. A more focused approach of ‘virtual region as planning unit’ would be useful to take the aspects into consideration related to geographical, cultural and developmental heterogeneity vis-à-vis tribal population. The idea of virtual region planning can be implemented through building on the unique strengths of tribal communities, approach of integrated planning with convergence, considering intra-tribe heterogeneity, leveraging the existing administrative and operational mechanisms, capacitate community to take informed decision regarding mainstreaming instead of forcing blanket ‘developmental measures’, etc. As regards the development of water-stressed regions, this study deals with the water-stressed regions of Maharashtra and Telangana. It is observed that the concept of ‘water stress’ in any region changes with the demand–supply situation, and it is a dynamic process. Optimum development of water resources in a river basin and a reasonably good dispersal of irrigation and other benefits in the entire basin need to be planned on social equity considerations. Lift irrigation schemes seem to be the only possibility of alleviating the water stress in water-stressed areas, which are elevated as in the case of the Deccan Plateau and do not have the benefit of irrigation water by gravity canals. The cost of setting up and maintaining such lift irrigation schemes, problems of sand siltation i...

  • Role of Democratic Decentralisation and Empowerment of Local Bodies: A
           Case of Kerala

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: K.S. Hari
      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      Kerala, the southernmost state of India, known for its unique development experience, has scripted another success story in the empowerment of local bodies. Through institutional reforms in devolution of powers, responsibilities and funds to the local governments, the state ensured successful transition from that of centralised to decentralised planning in the last 25 years. The present article is an attempt to understand the contributory factors for success of Kerala’s decentralisation experience and the challenges ahead. Direct participation of people in the plan formulation through gram sabha ensured deepening of democracy in the state. This helped improvement in the service delivery at the local level in education and health care sectors and better management of sanitation. Women empowerment through Kudumbashree Mission continues to be a role model for other states to emulate. Failure in the inclusion of outlier classes and castes even after 25 years continues as a black spot on the Kerala experience with democratic decentralisation.

      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      Spatial differences in the level of economic activity have several sources and conditioning factors. The most obvious among them is the character of naturally available material endowments including climatic and terrain conditions. The connectivity with adjacent or distant trading centres is yet another dimension that plays a critical role in propagating multiplier effects of ‘backward and forward linkages’ and gravity forces among the regions. What is attempted here is to create a template of a strategic framework for approaching the issues of regional disparities as they arise in varied forms and magnitude.JEL Classification: P25, R11, R58

  • Exploring a Design of Carbon Tax for Coal- and Lignite-Based Thermal Power
           Sector in India

      Authors: Sacchidananda Mukherjee
      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      According to India’s ‘Third Biennial Update Report to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’, electricity production contributes half of India’s total carbon dioxide (CO2) emission (without land use, land-use change and forestry [LULUCF]) and 40% of CO2e (CO2 equivalent) emission in 2016. Coal- and lignite-based thermal power sector is the predominant source of electricity generation in India, and it contributes 74% in 2019–2020. In the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26), India has committed to achieve net zero (in CO2e emission) target by 2070. Therefore, any strategy to reduce the total CO2e emission in India cannot spare emission reductions from coal- and lignite-based thermal power plants (TPPs).To accelerate achieving India’s emission intensity reduction target to 45%, we explore a design of carbon tax for coal- and lignite-based TPPs. Given the constraints involved in designing carbon tax based on cost-benefit analysis as well as integrated assessment models, we estimate a revenue neutral rate of tax on CO2e emission by converting taxes on coal and lignite. Our carbon tax proposal sets the floor (minimum) rate, and it requires regular upward revisions to induce TPPs to take action. To reduce disruptions in tax administrations, we propose adjustments of input tax credits with carbon tax liability.JEL Classification: H23, Q54, Q4, P43

  • Virtual Regions Strategy for Development of Tribal Communities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kiran Kulkarni, Sonal Shivagunde
      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      The Scheduled Tribe (ST) population in India is one of the most marginalised and deprived one in the country. The Constitution of India itself mandates exclusive approach, strategies and measures for their development. The Government of India and the state governments, along with other key stakeholders, have been taking very specific policy and programmatic interventions for reducing the disparities between the ST and other social groups for the past 74 years. The impact of these measures is clearly reflected through the improvement in vital development indicators. However, several gaps and challenges continue to persist, implying revisiting the fundamental approaches and planning processes which direct the interventions at policy and implementation level. In this article, an alternative, more focussed approach of ‘virtual region as planning unit’ takes the aspects related to geographical, cultural and developmental heterogeneity into consideration. Concrete strategies for implementation of various policies and programmes adopting the approach of virtual region planning in light of challenges have been presented.JEL Classification: D63, H11, H53, H61, H72, H75, H83, I14, I25, I38, J15, O21, O43, Y10, Z18

           Incremental Innovations

      Authors: Dorothy Dutta, Mrinmoy K. Sarma

      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      The study’s main purpose is to determine the adoption of digital innovations in a developing country that is continuously introduced on different service platforms. A quantitative approach is taken in the research where structured questionnaires based on the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) model have been used to collect primary data. A total of 821 responses were selected for analysis using structural equation modelling. The findings suggest that the UTAUT model indicates a good fit for determining the behavioural intention to adopt incremental innovations in digital platforms. The model as a whole explains 31.6% of the total variance in the behavioural intention to adopt. Out of the four variables in the UTAUT model, social influence (SI) is seen to have no significant relationship with that of behavioural intention. However, the other three factors, namely performance expectancy (PE), effort expectancy (EE) and facilitating conditions (FC), do have a significant impact on the behavioural intention to adopt incremental innovations. FC has the greatest influence on the behavioural intention, followed by PE and EE. But important factors like age, gender, internet experience and voluntariness to use that are considered moderators are not seen to impact this aspect. Research focussing on radical innovations is quite abundant in past literature; however, those focusing on incremental innovations are quite scarce. This research, focussing on the adoption of incremental innovation in digital platforms in a developing country with a digital divide situation, is indeed a novel attempt.JEL Classification: O1, O2, O320

      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      Indian economy, after maintaining a very low growth rate in the pre-reform phase, experienced high growth rate of its income in the post-reform phase. But the sparking growth rates in India after the onset of the liberalisation policy has questioned its sustainability in terms of sufficient employment generations. The present study aims to find out whether the aggregate economy and the sectors within it are moving towards jobless, job-loss or job-enabled growth for the period 1973–2018. The study thus calculated the output elasticity of employment in total period and phase-wise periods, and obtained that the values of the output elasticity of employment show no sign of sparking employment growth like that of the income. The average values of the elasticity of employment lie mostly less than half which signify the emergence of jobless growth. In some years, there are job-loss growths as well, mainly in industrial sector. Hence, it can be inferred that the Indian economy is not going in the right directions so far as employment opportunity is concerned; putting a big question on attaining the sustainable developmental goal.JEL Classification: J21, J64, O10

      Abstract: Review of Market Integration, Ahead of Print.
      Companies have shown social responsibility towards their stakeholders through corporate philanthropic efforts, known as Corporate Social Responsibility (‘CSR’). These efforts aim to maximise the welfare of the stakeholders and take care of the needs of society. The parent legislation for the Indian companies, that is, the Companies Act, brought a paradigm shift in 2013 when it mandated certain companies to spend mandatorily on CSR activities. Since then, the CSR legislation has been subject to frequent changes through amendments and clarifications. Various changes were brought to CSR policies in the past 2 years during COVID-19, including allocation of CSR funds towards COVID-19 relief funds, carry forward of excessive CSR expenditure and 100% tax deduction on COVID-19-related activities. This has affected how companies allocate their CSR funds.To study this change, this empirical study analyses the shifts in CSR expenditure of the top 25 companies of the Fortune 500 list in pre-COVID-19 financial year 2017–2018 and COVID-19 hit financial year 2020–2021. The study uses a secondary data collection method, that is, self-reported annual reports, to arrive at ratios given as percentages or fractions, and a comparison is made across the two periods. The authors deliberate upon the limitations of the CSR regime as revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic and address questions relating to the CSR regime’s efficiency in providing societal good. Furthermore, the authors study the modified CSR expenditure pattern adopted by several companies consequent of COVID-19. This study concludes by offering recommendations that strive to inspire a more sustainable, efficient and pragmatic CSR regime in India.JEL Codes: G39, D22, M14

      Using World Development data for the period of 1991–2020, this article examines the total factor productivity (TFP) measured by Malmquist productivity index (MPI) and its components’ technological progress and technical efficiency change (TEC) for five South Asian countries, namely India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. TFP growth is calculated using the MPI along with panel data of those countries. This article adds onto the existing literature by estimating the technological progress and TEC for these five South Asian countries. Further, the article also emphasises differences in the TFP growth among these countries. The study finds that TFP of all the South Asian countries are cyclical in nature, highly volatile and full of ups and downs during the whole study period. TFP is growing in standard technology-based economy (India), which is the consequence of technological progress. On the other hand, among labour-intensive economies, Sri Lanka is performing better as TFP in Sri Lanka is improving at a good rate, while Pakistan’s TFP is also growing steadily. Here, both the countries’ TFP growth is driven by positive technological change. Bangladesh is observing TFP decline as Bangladesh is the worst performer among five nations in South Asia despite the fact that technological change is still progressing. Nepal’s TFP is improving as well, but at a slower pace. Except Bangladesh, efficiency change shows progressive trend in the remaining countries.JEL Classification: D24, F02, F62, O14
