8-10% growth, anti-poverty measures needed: Jaitley on Census 5.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Pitching for passage of land acquisition and GST bills in Parliament, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said policy reforms and 8-10 per cent economic growth are a must to eliminate poverty. With Congress and other opposition parties threatening to disrupt the upcoming monsoon session, Jaitley said the message from the Socio Economic and Caste Census is clear that "growth and economic reforms help the poor as do targeted schemes". The Census results, released on Friday last, have painted a grim picture of the rural India, highlighting that one out of three families living in villages is landless and depends on manual labour for livelihood. Jaitley said improving this situation is the "number one priority of this government". "Growth or redistribution? Policy reforms or targeted anti-poverty schemes? We believe these are false choices. Both are necessary," the Minister said in a Facebook post. The way out to eliminate deprivation, Jaitley said, "is to achieve rapid economic growth of 8-10 per cent so ...

Needed: Green Thumb 5.7.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
Tonnes of waste prevented from being dumped in 2010 due to compositing and recycling efforts Here is a look at the current development pattern vis-a-vis green concerns The just released socio economic census reminds us that still it is miles to go on the development front. A majority of population in country still lives in villages where a vast majority is deprived of developmental benefits. At present, metropolitan agglomerations and industrial cities in India have attracted village folks in quest of employment and a better life. However, perhaps they have not been able to provide the desired better life. As many of them have crossed the carrying capacity, have huge population resource imbalance, and the cities are facing environmental problems. It is a good idea to have several smart cities, but mostly the idea is not realised in its totality. The drinking water woes of Dwarka sub-city in Delhi is the best example. I am not sure if in the present form it qualifies to be a smart city. But the fact ...

Census 2011 makes for dismal reading 5.7.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
In order to make a lasting dent in poverty, we need to move beyond 100 days of assured employment — as under NREGA — to a system of policies that lead to asset formation for rural households In order to make a lasting dent in poverty, we need to move beyond 100 days of assured employment — as under NREGA — to a system of policies that lead to asset formation for rural households The information contained in the report of the Socio-Economic and Caste Census (SECC), released by the government on Friday, makes for dismal reading. The findings legitimately make us wonder how effective policy interventions have been in the last six decades to overcome poverty, especially poverty in rural areas where the bulk of our people live even now. It is clear that an unconscionably high percentage of rural Indians own no material assets. The national average of rural households without land is about 56 per cent, while in most states of the Union, especially the larger ones, the proportion is actually some 10 to 15 per ...
