Modest Growth in non-farm income 16.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
The second part of JM Financial’s Rural Safari series shows how non farm income, even though slow in acceleration, helped to partially offset the decline in farm income over the past two years. It draws attention to the political aspect of farm loan waivers, saying demand for them is likely to rise as general elections approach. The survey, however, notes that such relief provided by the government to meet financial needs also helps boost rural consumption Rural income is increasingly diversifying away from agriculture to non-farm income, which currently accounts for  40 per cent of total agri-household income. Major sources of non-farm income are dairy and poultry, wage-based occupation, sand mining, tractor rental income and small businesses.

Increase in organised retail in eastern India 16.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
A consumer durables retailer which commenced operations in 1999 in Patna with a single store in the city was surprised to see sales of inverter ACs worth Rs 60,000 from places such as Sitamarhi in Bihar. There is clearly an aspirational shift in earlier rural or semi-urban eastern India, which is benefiting from the availability of branded products in the region. The company in question is a multi-brand, multi-product retail chain that stocks an entire range of consumer durables including air-conditioners, TVs, washing machines, refrigerators, microwaves, home theatre systems, mobile phones, small home appliances and such. The products on offer are those manufactured by some of the best companies in the business. The JM Financial survey found that the expansion of electricity in and into smaller regions is reflecting in sales in smaller towns and cities. Remittance income from other Indian cities as well as overseas, such as West Asia, has also been triggering consumption.In FY18, the company opened ...

Infrastructure spending in rural areas on a steady path 16.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
Road construction continues to be strong: The construction of road infrastructure (rural roads) has seen a healthy jump to 45-50,000 km/year from 30,000 km/year a few years ago. Among states, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, UP and Rajasthan accounted for 50 per cent of the roads constructed over the last four years. Improved road infrastructure is reflecting in increased demand for automobiles and driving initial signs of a shift from motorcycles to scooters in rural hinterlands. Rural housing completion varies significantly across states: Rural housing under PMAY-G is one of the government’s flagship schemes and has been a key driver of demand for cement, building material and electrical appliances. In terms of completion, the scheme has envisaged the construction of 10 million rural houses by March 2019. As of early October 2018, 5.1 million houses have been completed. However, 8.8 million households have received the first installment and given that the construction of a typical house takes 3-4 months, ...
