  • Religious orientation and poverty in Ghana: associations and explanations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The relationship between religious orientation and poverty has not been given adequate attention in the literature. The major objective of this study was to determine the effect of religious orientation on poverty status. We collected data from a representative sample of household heads in Ghana through a multi-stage random sampling. The data was analyzed using logistic and probit models. Instrumental variable estimation and structural equation modeling were used to address reverse causality and assess mediated effect, respectively. The study found that intrinsic religious orientation has a negative effect on poverty, particularly in urban areas. The study also found that the negative relationship between intrinsic religiosity orientation and poverty is partially mediated by the propensity to save. The basic implication of our finding is that personal religiosity/religious commitment needs to be complemented by church programs that take advantage of the rich and diversified religious network that exists in urban areas to facilitate poverty reduction.

  • Rent seeking, supervisor approvals and conventional corruption control
           approach—an Indian experience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study challenges the argument that making it mandatory for the anti-corruption agencies to obtain prior supervisor approvals for detecting and prosecuting the corrupt can bring-in efficiency in corruption control. Applying the political economy concepts such as rents and rent seeking, this study explores the intricate relationships that exist between discretions available with the supervisors and their decisions of allowing the anti-corruption enforcement to detect and prosecute the public servants in corruption cases. The issue of similar facts getting differently appreciated by different public authorities has also been brought out by this study. This study argues that prior supervisor approvals in high discretionary and low risk environments can promote rent seeking behaviour in public organizations. Findings of this study show that limiting the discretions of authorities that decide supervisor approvals and holding them accountable for their decisions can be the conditions critical for efficient anti-corruption enforcement in India.

  • Evaluating Odisha’s COVID-19 response: from quiet confidence to a
           slippery road

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Odisha is among handful of states that is at the forefront of India’s fight against a rapidly growing COVID-19 pandemic. Even before the national lockdown was imposed by the Union government on March 24, Odisha was only state to have imposed partial lockdown in select districts. It was also first state that took proactive steps to ramp up its health care system particularly having a COVID-19 hospital with intensive care units (ICUs) on public–private partnership mode. Importantly, Odisha was among few states to have created a COVID-19 hospital at each district in record time. In addition, the state took many proactive measures including setting up a taskforce to oversee the COVID-19 response, put up a critical information and communication system with daily press briefings among others to stay on the top of pandemic management. But come May when the migrants rush unfolded, the state experienced steady surge in infections as the pandemic started spreading to relatively dense rural hinterlands. The migrant endowed districts like Ganjam became the epicentres of new spread and the state is struggling to rein on the growing pandemic. What led to the state losing its initial gains' How did the state manage it so ably in the initial period and what led to the surge' What are the unique features of Odisha’s pandemic response' Is there an Odisha Model as claimed by several observers' (Patnaik et al. in The Wire, 2020) This paper endeavours to chronicle Odisha’s response to COVID-19 in relations to policies and programmes initiatives and actors and dynamics shaping these responses' Key aim is to identify strengths and experience of the eastern state which has a long and credible record of fighting natural disasters.

  • Pandemic resilience and health systems preparedness: lessons from COVID-19
           for the twenty-first century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The pandemic of COVID-19 disease has acted like a stress test on every aspect of life, but particularly exposed weaknesses of health systems design and capacity. There have been similar pandemics in the past, and the threat of more frequent future pandemics in the twenty-first century is real. It is therefore important to learn the right lessons with regard to health systems preparedness and resilience. The five design features that this paper discusses are related to the organization of primary care services, planned surge capacity in secondary and tertiary care, a robust disease surveillance system that is integrated with the health management information system, adequate domestic capacity in being able to innovate and scale up production and logistics of much needed medical products and a governance approach that recognizes the importance of the health systems being able to continuously learn and adapt to meet changing needs. In addition to this, the organizational capacity of the system to deliver required services would need more investment in financial resources, and a suitable health human resource policy.

  • Informal settlements, the emerging response to COVID and the imperative of
           transforming the narrative

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The COVID pandemic has exposed several faultlines of urbanism in India. This paper is a narrative of the remarkable continuities between the past legacies of governance of informal settlements, pandemic response and emerging ideas of alternate urbanisms and their inability to address issues of inequity, exclusion and vulnerability. The pandemic and the resultant situation exposes the limits of the current policies, programming linked to informal settlements, their imagination of informality and outlines the urgent need to escape the trap of bracketing of informal settlements as an ‘issue’ within itself delinked from the dynamic and ever-changing processes of urbanization through community led policy responses and effective local governance. In the absence of effective state response, informal settlements authored their own script of coping with the challenges thrown by the pandemic; their presence, participation and centrality in scripting future policies is a much-needed transformation of the narrative.

  • The protracted exodus of migrants from Hyderabad in the time of COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The immediate aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic in India saw a mass movement of people, mainly from the cities and large towns to the villages. The lockdown announced by the government abruptly suspended the instrumental value of the city for the millions of migrant workers inhabiting these. As the lockdown period extended, with very uncertain means of inter-state public transport, desperate migrant workers took to the streets in large numbers undertaking arduous and often dangerous journeys to their places of origin. The media highlighting the plight of the migrants elicited responses from different sections. This paper is an exploration of the role of the state and its institutions, civil society and the judiciary in responding to the migrant crisis in the city of Hyderabad, a hub of migrant workers. Closely following the silences and pronouncements of the institutions and analysing the role of each of these over the different phases of the migrant crisis, the paper asserts the need for a closer scrutiny of the universal role of the state response during the migrant crisis.

  • COVID-19 and the burden of ill-health: a double crisis of disruptions and
           inequalities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this paper, we attempt to show how the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has disrupted routine health services in India and has created further inequalities in the society. By taking a few examples of non-COVID diseases and conditions like immunization, maternal health services, tuberculosis and non-communicable diseases, this paper shows how these services have been disrupted by the pandemic. The paper argues that these disruptions have not emerged only as a result of the current crisis, but because of the paradigm shifts in the healthcare delivery in the country towards privatization which have disproportionately marginalized particular sections of the society. The paper concludes by stating that if adequate measures are not taken now to transform the health system and strengthen the public healthcare system, it might lead to catastrophic consequences in the future, especially for the marginalized sections.

  • Health systems and nutrition in the time of COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As infection rates rise, job losses increase and workers leave cities to walk back home, and there is a silent hunger and nutrition crisis striking the country. Those who will bear the brunt of this are the already vulnerable—namely, children, adolescent girls, nursing and expectant mothers—now denied even basic calories. Among these are some who are also suffering huge weight losses because of the 15 days of high fever. This tragedy will play out in various horrifying ways in the future and must be addressed with urgency. Our stimulus package promises loans, which will take time to reach the poor, and a meager ration of cereals and pulses, while hunger and insufficient nutrition are immediate problems as Raghuram Rajan pointed out recently.

  • Hunger and food security in the times of Covid-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper discusses the situation of hunger and malnutrition in India during the times of the Covid-19, the associated lockdown and the aftermath. The economic slowdown and loss of employment have resulted in widespread food insecurity. There are also concerns that this might have long-lasting effects on the nutrition status of the population. In this context, government support through schemes such as the PDS plays an important role. While there have been some interventions through these schemes towards providing food and cash support to people, there are many gaps. The availability of high food stocks can be used as an opportunity to provide a universal PDS which is the need of the hour. Other issues such as expanding the PDS to include pulses and oils, decentralised procurement, universal food support through school meals and ICDS, and enhanced cash transfers through social security schemes also need to be ensured.

  • Pandemic and the state

      Abstract: It has been argued the pandemic has brought back the state. The discussions on this return of the state have been concentrated, so far, around familiar themes: trade-off between freedom-privacy and security with the expansion of control and surveillance of our bodies by the state, efficiency-competency of the state in containing the spread of the virus, and exclusion of marginalised peoples from healthcare facilities and sacrifice of older people in the process of rational allocation of critical care. In this short essay, I will explore and engage with these debates, and enquire what the pandemic control measures and outcomes tell us about present nature of the Indian state.

  • COVID-19 pandemic in India: through psycho-social lens

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented crisis that simultaneously affected different countries and communities across the globe. The large-scale psychosocial impact of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, is an experiential reality for many, in India. Despite this impact, a closer look at India’s response to the pandemic shows that the two strands of health and relief measures, continue to occupy centre-stage. The psycho-social aspects of the pandemic unfortunately largely remain undocumented and unaddressed. Using experiences of iCALL, National national level psycho-social counseling counselling service and a field action project of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, the paper throws light on the much-neglected experiential psycho-social dimensions of COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown in India. It describes the stressors experienced by users who approached iCALL and the consequent impact; especially among those who belonged to the vulnerable sections of the society. The nature of stressors as well as the impact reported by iCALL users, clearly points out to a complex interplay among several factors at individual, interpersonal, community and structural levels. The paper then, critically looks at the merits and limitations of the mental health framework that predominated the mental health response during the pandemic with its bio-medical and individualistic undertones; and suggests an alternative framing using a ‘psycho-social’ paradigm that views distress as an interaction between the psychological and social worlds. The paper asserts reciprocal linkages between development and psycho-social distress; highlighting the need to consciously integrate mental health issues into the development response. In the end, it makes an appeal for an inter sectoral dialogue, integrated response and advocacy for investing in mental health and psycho-social infrastructure to effectively respond to the pandemic.

      Abstract: The pandemic has led to a renewed reflection on what it means to be self-reliant in terms of our everyday practices. Nations too follow this logic in their own claims of self-reliance. This paper discusses the implications in these claims of self-reliance in the context of the nation by positioning this claim within the tension between two different formulations of the self: self of the nation as against the idea of national self.

  • Prisons and the pandemic: the panopticon plays out

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Fearing the spread of the COVID 19 infection in prisons, governments have released seemingly large numbers of prisoners in many countries. However, in terms of overall percentages, the releases have been less significant. In India, prisons are overcrowded with nearly 70% under trials. With very poor sanitation and healthcare facilities, there are numerous deaths in custody due to various illnesses, including heart, lung, liver and kidney-related ailments as well as HIV, tuberculosis and cancer. It is in this context that the need to take urgent steps to contain the spread of the contagion inside prisons became apparent to the prison authorities around the time the national lockdown was announced by the Government of India. Some of the measures taken by prison departments include creation of temporary prisons to admit new prisoners and keep them in quarantine for 14 days before transferring them to the regular prisons, transfer of prisoners from congested prisons to less crowded prisons, making prisoners aware of the virus, setting up Corona care centres inside or outside prisons, etc. While prison authorities claim that they were taking necessary preventive steps within existing limitations, there has been some criticism of the inadequacy of these measures and the conditions inside prisons. The Supreme Court of India took suo moto cognizance of the issue and asked state governments to constitute a High Powered Committees to identify categories of prisoners who could be released. The article highlights that the criteria for release was based on the purported seriousness of the offence rather than vulnerability to getting infected. Also, the absence of gender disaggregated data on release of prisoners indicates the lack of importance given to the needs of women prisoners. It can be said that the policies and measures taken towards preventing the spread of COVID 19 pandemic in prisons has reinforced existing biases against prisoners. The major concern of the prison and judicial authorities was to somehow manage the situation without disturbing the ‘dangerousness’ and risk to ‘law and order’ narrative about prisoners. The article concludes by drawing attention to the fact that the Foucauldian principles of segregation, segmentation and surveillance were maintained in the decision making processes relating to treatment of prisoners during the pandemic.

  • Public policy lessons from the Covid-19 outbreak: How to deal with it in
           the post-pandemic world'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Using cumulative confirmed cases of Covid-19 covering 163 countries, this paper tests several hypotheses that have received extensive attention in the popular media and academic research during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Our goal is to identify lessons for designing better public health policies in the post-pandemic era based on the past 6 months’ experiences of these 163 countries. Based on 2SLS regression, we derive the following lessons. First, providing universal health care is a significant public health strategy for countries to help deal with similar outbreaks in the future. Second, tackling air pollution is a win–win solution, not only for better preparedness against Covid-19 or other airborne diseases, but also for the environment and climate change. Third, lockdowns may help to reduce community spread, but its impact on reducing Covid-19 incidence is not statistically significant. Similarly, antimalarial drugs have no significant effect on reducing the spread of the disease. Fourth, countries should encourage home-based work as much as possible until some treatment or cure is found for the virus. Fifth, the lessons of past SARS experience helped contain the spread of the infection in East Asian countries; other countries must adjust their social and cultural life to the new normal: wearing masks, washing hands, and keeping a distance from others in public places.

  • Determinants of COVID-19 pandemic in India: an exploratory study of Indian
           states and districts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The countries across the globe are facing one of the worst infectious diseases in modern times in the form of COVID-19 pandemic. Different measures have been taken to control and manage the outbreak of COVID-19 in these countries. There are two propositions in context of effective control and management of a pandemic like COVID-19. First, a strong and effective public health care system is essential for managing the public health crisis and the uneven responses to COVID-19 are mainly because of inadequate health infrastructure. Second, the spread of COVID-19 depends on the interplay of other social determinants at local level, and therefore, addressing the gaps in social determinants of COVID-19 at local level is critical to control and manage this pandemic. The present paper attempts to examine these two propositions in Indian context at states and districts level, respectively. Using the cross-sectional data and constructing composite indices of COVID-19 intensity and level of health infrastructure at state level, the results show that there is no robust relationship between level of health infrastructure and management of COVID-19 at state level as the states with better health infrastructure are also struggling to combat against COVID-19. The district-level analysis indicates a significant relationship between concentration of COVID-19 and social determinants as majority of the districts with higher concentration of COVID-19 are those which have social determinants below national average.

  • Understanding labour market disruptions and job losses amidst COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper examines the impact of COVID-19 pandemic-induced lockdown on labour market in India. By using the data of centre for monitoring Indian economy (CMIE)’s consumer pyramids household survey (CPHS), the paper analyses the magnitude and nature of job losses and consequent unprecedented rise in unemployment across gender, social group, occupations during April–June 2020. It finds widespread job losses in labour market with some sections of the society, including small traders, self-employed, migrant workers, daily wage labourers, youth and women being worst affected, who mostly work in the informal sector of the Indian economy. Agriculture sector acted as a sponge by absorbing surplus labour during the times of COVID-19, which was being gradually vacated earlier over the years due to several well-known reasons. The rate of recovery in labour market has been comparatively much slower in case of salaried jobs, youth employment, particularly in rural areas and with elementary education. The economic consequences such disruptions on employment front were even much more serious as a very low percentage of households reporting improvement in their incomes. The most worrying aspect is that though the return to normalcy may take some time, there has been general recessionary trends in employment in India, which have been visible much before the COVID-19 crisis. The policy measures need to be extraordinary in such difficult times, focusing on securing employment and welfare of affected workers through sound and effective social protection programmes along with a major drive for promoting labour-intensive economic activities such as micro- and small enterprises, extension of employment security to poor urban households and skilling/reskilling of labour force to work in post-COVID-changed situations.

  • Endogenization of social progress as a source of economic growth

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The paper shows that in the evolution of models of economic growth toward the expansion of the endogenous nature of the factors that determine its dynamics, it is advisable to consider the endogenous nature of socialization and social innovation which are a means to accumulate social skills to support and expand business activities and intangible assets as sources of economic growth. Socialization, having personal significance and based on personal perception, shapes social perception, thus supporting social development and its economic components. On this basis, the paper shows that the purpose of socialization to overcome the limitations inherent in the cultural code can be achieved, inter alia, through the influence of the state and civil society, in particular in Ukraine. Collectively, this allows for transformation, in particular, in the economy, in accordance with public interests, rather than private interests.

  • Determinants of capital structure: a panel regression analysis of Indian
           auto manufacturing companies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Capital Structure denotes the proportion of equities, preference share capital, long-term loans, debentures, retained earnings and other long-term sources of funds for business. The cost of these sources of funds, their tax advantages and legal implications are varied. The impact of these sources of funds on the value of the business is also different. Thus, the decision regarding the mix of different sources of funds in the capital structure is a challenging one for the practicing financial managers. The conventional theories of capital structure factored in some unrealistic assumptions to prove their propositions. But, in practice, there are a number of firm specific factors along with other quantifiable and non-quantifiable factors are influencing the capital structure decision of companies. This is an attempt to identify the firm specific factors influencing the capital structure decision of automobile manufacturing companies in India. The study employed panel regression analysis to identify the firm specific factors. Two variants of capital structure ratio such as Long-term Debt to Total Assets and Long-term Debt to Equity are tried in the panel data. It is found that firm size, profitability, tangibility, growth in assets and interest coverage are jointly influencing the capital structure decision of the auto companies.

  • Roads matter at the periphery: India’s post-liberalization road
           projects in the Northeast

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As the hilly and far-flung periphery of Northeast India was excluded from an adequate road network during the post-Independent period, it produced certain exceptional narratives of being a ‘landlocked, cut-off, inaccessible and underdeveloped’ region of India. In the post-liberalization period however, trans-boundary road projects at this periphery became essential for India’s transnational economic engagements. Subsequently, a central highway flagship programme SARDP-NE was introduced in 2005 to make the Northeast accessible and ensure its economic development. This became more nuanced since 2014 with India’s Act East Policy, which centralizes the Northeast as a ‘gateway’ of India. Multiple road projects with major emphasis on highways were undertaken and completed to restore connectivity and integrate Northeast with ‘mainland’ India. This paper empirically maps this new road infrastructure and examines its impact on the region’s economy and people’s lives. It also unfolds how the road project has visibly proliferated to serve multiple national political and geo-strategic interests, symbolizing a new form of regional power relation and control.
