Related News Who are the poor Who should the government assist These are the questions at the heart of the recent debate about the use of poverty lines to define subsidy-worthy populations After much outragea defensive government clarified that a new expert committee will answer these questions in a way that is consistent with the provisions of the forthcoming food security bill Howeverthorny questions await this committee as well The draft bill of the government proposes differential subsidy entitlement to what they call priority and general households Together these would account for 75 per cent of rural households and 50 per cent of urban households Priority households are entitled to 7 kg per person per month while general households can claim 3 kg per person per month The subsidy rate is also higher for priority households As a resultpriority households would receive subsidies that are about three times higher than that of general households Though the coverage proposed in the bill is an improvement over the existing PDSit is lower than what was proposed in the original version put forward by the National Advisory Council (NAC) This is unfortunate because the argument for near-universal coverage is compelling Most poor get excluded from the lists of below poverty line (BPL) households A similar exclusion error might happen in distinguishing priority from general households This will be the challenge for the new expert committee of the government After allthe poorunlike the richare difficult to identify It is much easier to identify the obviously non-poor (those who pay income taxown cars etc) and to exclude them from eligibility Once the use of UID becomes widespreadthe task of identifying the rich will become even easier The obvious limit to higher coverage is finances The PDS part of the food security bill will cost about 15 per cent of GDP By comparisongovernment spending (by the Centre and all states) on health is just about 1 per cent of GDP Public expenditure on education is in the range of 3-4 per cent of GDP Thereforein relation to government spending on other worthwhile social sector programmesthe expenditure on food subsidies will be significant From the perspective of future developmentit is beyond dispute that human beings constitute the main wealth of nations What can we say about our national wealth and the future of this country when a huge multitude of its citizens are malnourished and under-educated Can we afford to waste such enormous human resource There are two ways in which the compromise on coverage can be made to hurt less Firstthe food security bill also has a non-PDS component which is about special nutrition and health programmes for pregnant or nursing women and young childrenand school-meal programmes for older children The importance of these provisions has been overshadowed by the debates about the PDS component of the bill Yet the value of these programmes is uncontested (even as there are institutional failures in the provision of these services) and here is where the government would do well to not stingy For instancethe government version of the bill dropped a provision for cash supplements of Rs 6000 (spread over six months) to pregnant and nursing women a programme that will cost about Rs 12000 crore annually It is understandable if the government would want to try out such programmes on a limited scale but surely the commitment to food security has to start with young mothers and children Secondcash transfers could provide a way to harness the wasted resources in the existing PDS For some time nowthe governments cost of distributing grain has been higher than that of the private sector In 2004-05the government would have saved about Rs 5700 crore if its cost matched that of the private sector Firm figures for later years are not available Howevertentative calculations suggest that these savings might now be to the order of Rs 10000 crore or more Thereforeeven if the Central government sticks to the lower coverage figure and allocates funds accordinglya state government might well be able to extend coverage by shifting partially or wholly to cash transfers (and thereby economising on distribution costs) Cash transfers could also help in increasing effective coverage In several statesthe actual coverage of PDS is much lower than what exists on paper because of the illegal diversion of grain to the open market For instanceunder the government proposal of reduced coveragethe subsidy to priority- and general category households works out to Rs 1344 and Rs 417 per person per year This assumes that there are no illegal diversions (about 40 per cent or so in 2009-10) On the other handif the subsidy bill of Rs 95000 crore was distributed as an equal cash transfer to households under the near universal scheme of the NACthe per person transfer is Rs 1036 to allwhether priority or general Given the infirmities of targeting and the realities of grain blackmarketingthe second option seems to be better to us If there are state governments that also come to this conclusionthe food security bill should allow for such flexible restructuring Here the coverage parameters of the food security bill would serve only as a formula to transfer resources to state governments but would not be binding on them Of courseour proposal reduces the subsidy to priority households Critics should weigh this against the benefits of higher and uniform coverage both of which ought to improve the access of the poor to subsidies Critics might also ponder that the much lauded universal PDS programme of Tamil Nadu provides 20 kg of grain to households which is substantially less than the proposed grain entitlement of 35 kg for

ideological stance: muscular national defencesocial conservatismfiscal conservatism and a reliance on markets for economic growth The old saying laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahin maante (some people

marriage be always arranged by elders of the family Early Hindu nationalists used to defend the caste systembut post-1980the BJPunlike the old Jan Sanghhas abandoned the advocacy of caste hierarchies

accused nor gives any detailed reasons for the decision Top News A PHD scholar of Panjab University who has been expelled by the varsity for lodging a “false complaint of sexual harassment” against the son of Dean of Students Welfare (Women) Neena Caplash has written to the National Commission of Women seeking an inquiry into the case and alleged that the varsity authorities led by PU Vice Chancellor Arun Kumar Grover have “ignored” her complaints and was “biased” against her A month after the university syndicate following the report of Panjab University Committee Against Sexual Harassment (PUCASH) rejected the 27-year-old’s complaint as “an afterthought” and declared it “false and malicious” the university deputy registrar (general) in a communication to the student informed her that the PU syndicate at a meeting last month cancelled her PhD thesis for making “a false complaint of sexual harassment” The PU letter neither makes any mention of the accused nor gives any detailed reasons for the decision The vice chancellor declined to comment when asked under what rules the student was suspended The student has alleged that PUCASH unilaterally took the decision without listening to her version and the V-C declared her case false without conducting investigation The complaint of sexual harassment dates back to January 7 when the girl riding a scooty was allegedly followed by the DSW’s son who was driving a car “The moment I reached near the V-C’s house I found him chasing me once again and he attempted to molest me and sexually harassed me by passing lewd comments” the girl has written in her complaint addressed to the NCW chairperson “As I tried to accelerate he intentionally dashed my scooty with his white Endeavour” In an e-mail communication to the vice chancellor on February 1 the student narrated the whole incident and sought an inquiry following which the V-C forwarded it to PUCASH She had also accused the DSW (women) of making her fraudulently sign a paper and asked the V-C to get an FIR registered in the case against the official and her son “She said the doctors wanted me to sign it to proceed with the treatment but then I did not know that she is also the mother of the person (accused) The statement is now being shown as reconciliation statement I have filed an RTI request to see the contents of the copy but not been provided yet” said the student Denying the allegations DSW (Women) Neena Caplash said she has got “complete proof” that nothing of the sort happened “There is no question that I have taken any such statement and where is the time for such things in an emergency I never made her sign anything” she said “The place where she got hurt is near our place and when he (son) called us I went to the hospital along with my husband We were there the whole night She was the one who said there was no fault of us and she had no complaint I cannot stop anybody from lying now” A police case registered in the incident however does not include any section of sexual harassment According to the FIR the accused have been charged with rash driving and causing hurt to others under sections 279 and 337 of the IPC Police found that the accused did not even have a valid driving licence The girl alleged that she had made a mention of the sexual harassment and the lewd comments passed against her by the accused in a complaint lodged with the police Station House Officer of Sector 11 police station Inspector Lakhbir Singh said they had not found enough evidence to proceed with the sexual harassment charges PU Senator Jagdish Chander Mehta who was the student’s guide said the case should not have been sent to PUCASH as the accused was neither a student nor an employee of the university “It is a very serious issue and the student is being victimised by the university Even I had been told by the V-C to disown the student They have not even sought my comments as a supervisor” he said When asked why the case was referred to the committee against sexual harassment as the accused was not associated with the university the V-C said “I don’t want to answer any of your questions” For all the

banks or public-sector banks (PSBs) is ridden with multiple problems One that needs urgent attention is the high level of non-performing assets (NPAs) and restructured assets Stressed assets (NPAs plus loans that have been restructured) for scheduled commercial banks have steadily increased over the last five years to reach 113 per cent of total advances in September For the PSBs it was higher at 141 per cent Tackling this has to be a priority because banks which are gasping for breath today will be expected to gallop tomorrow when the demand for credit picks up Asking the government to hang all promoters who contributed to bad loans and forcing write-offs of Rs 114 lakh crore in the last three years (‘1140000000000: The great govt bank write-off’ The Indian Express February 8) is the easiest of all demands to make True some fat cats have had no skin in the game — put little equity and took on large debt They gold-plated expenditures added to their personal wealth and also displayed it in an obscene manner But it is also a fact that many others over-expanded in the hope that India would scale double-digit growth rates In doing so a large number got embroiled in debt Policy logjam in infrastructure and slowing domestic growth on top of an uncertain world economy — which has refused to stabilise after the 2008 crisis — have left the corporate sector weary While there is a case for bringing to book wilful defaulters and conniving bank managements targeting all and sundry will do immense damage How can the government resolve the NPA crisis It must put to use multiple instruments The first is to coax banks to identify bad assets In March 2015 the NPAs in absolute terms were as high as Rs 302 lakh crore or 46 per cent of total advances Stressed assets were as high as Rs 722 lakh crore Banking analysts estimate the actual quantum of stressed assets to be much higher and these range from Rs 115 lakh crore to Rs 165 lakh crore The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is goading banks in several ways to do this The NPAs eat into profits and that is why banks hide them In fact banks further lend to corporates and help them service their past loans Second the government must set up an asset reconstruction company (ARC) to buy these bad loans from banks There are 15 privately owned ARCs but they have failed because banks fear a witch-hunt by the government at a later date for having the NPAs at a particular discount The ARCs will buy bad assets only at a discount; so there is always an element of subjectivity in pricing If an ARC is funded by the government it will bring credibility to the plan With the sale of impaired assets at a discount banks will have to write off the amount and take a hit They will need additional capital far more than the Rs 70000 crore committed by the government over the next four years Providing for such amounts from the Union budget presents a challenge since the government has to increase spending to maintain the growth momentum while trying to meet the fiscal deficit target Here the government can take a leaf out of its own post-reforms handbook Between the mid-1990s and the early 2000s the government deployed a unique mechanism to recapitalise banks Monies to the tune of over Rs 20000 crore were provided to banks for capital but the banks in turn invested these in government bonds These were called recapitalisation bonds and were converted into marketable securities akin to government paper in subsequent years This exercise was budget-neutral meaning that there was no direct cash outgo and it did not add to the fiscal deficit An option that suits the present scenario TT Ram Mohan of IIM Ahmedabad estimates the total cost of recapitalisation including the proposed Rs 70000 crore to add up to Rs 150000 crore A cost-benefit exercise may not be straightforward because while costs are known benefits are not easily measurable Putting a number to the damage that an economy can suffer if a few big banks fail or if they are unable to fund the demands of a resurgent corporate sector will be more of guesswork Last but the most important reform is to seriously start the process of de-politicising banks In response to another recent report — ‘Govt plans to defuse ticking bank bomb’ (The Indian Express February 1) — wherein the plan was to “take the tumour (of NPAs) out” the head of a prominent think-tank said that “tumour” was not the right metaphor It should be “cirrhosis of the liver” he said adding that if alcohol abuse caused cirrhosis then its intake must be stopped first In the case of banks the government must get out and let them be professionally owned and managed This is a long haul and Indradhanush a plan announced last August is a babystep in that direction Clearly a lot needs to be done as laid out in the PJ Nayak committee’s recommendations While banks have been recapitalised in the past the government has so far stayed away from setting up an ARC fearing a moral hazard In the US the $475 billion worth Troubled Assets Relief Programme (TARP) which took over toxic assets of financial institutions and auto companies eventually earned the treasury $12 billion In India the moral hazard question arises only when banks are given a fresh lease without a haircut If bad loans are auctioned and banks forced to take a haircut then there is no real moral hazard The ARC can in turn sell these assets or where possible turn them around by changing the management of companies Of course the government needs to stay out of ARC operations and let it be managed by experts and professionals who are not constrained by public-sector salaries The exercise could well serve another purpose — showing the road ahead for overhauling the PSBs

instead scientists would just give each other money “Self-organized fund allocation” (SOFA) as it’s called was developed by computer scientist Johan Bollen at Indiana University in Bloomington When he first published about the idea in 2014 many people were skeptical But interest appears to be growing and thanks to the work of an enthusiastic advocate ecologist Marten Scheffer of Wageningen University in the Netherlands the Dutch parliament adopted a motion last year asking the country’s main funding agency the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) to set up a SOFA pilot project Competition for funding has become too intense especially for young scientists Scheffer and Bollen say and the current peer-review system is inefficient It’s also unfair they argue because a few scientists get lots of grants—Scheffer is one of them—whereas many others get few or nothing But when Scheffer explained his idea at an NWO workshop about “application pressure” here last week the agency didn’t appear sold yet The duo says the numbers speak for themselves At the US National Institutes of Health the overall success rate for grants applications has dropped from 30% in 2003 to 191% in 2016 In the latest round of European Research Council Starting Grants the rate was a paltry 113% At NWO the success rate for grants for young scientists has dropped to 14% A 2013 study estimated that writing and reviewing applications for 40 million worth of these grants costs 95 million annually In Bollen’s system scientists no longer have to apply; instead they all receive an equal share of the funding budget annually—some 30000 in the Netherlands and $100000 in the United States—but they have to donate a fixed percentage to other scientists whose work they respect and find important “Our system is not based on committees’ judgments but on the wisdom of the crowd” Scheffer told the meeting Bollen and his colleagues have tested their idea in computer simulations If scientists allocated 50% of their money to colleagues they cite in their papers research funds would roughly be distributed the way funding agencies currently do they showed in a paper last year—but at much lower overhead costs Not everybody is convinced At the meeting some worried that scientists might give money mostly to their friends Scheffer said an algorithm would prevent that for instance by banning donations to people you have published with but he acknowledged it would be a challenge in small research communities SOFA might also result in a mismatch between what scientists need and what their colleagues donate and a competition for donations could lead to a time-consuming and costly circus comparable to an election campaign The way to find out Scheffer and Bollen say is a real-world test and they say the Netherlands a small country with short lines of communication between scientists politicians and funding agencies is a good place for one Last year Scheffer convinced Eppo Bruins a member of the Dutch House of Representatives to submit a motion calling for a pilot program at NWO which the parliament approved in June 2016 The money could be taken from a 150 million NWO pot currently distributed among consortia of innovative Dutch scientists Bruins suggested But NWO is not obliged to carry out the proposal and so far has shown little enthusiasm “NWO is willing to explore together with scientists and other stakeholders how to improve allocation rates but is still considering practicality and support” for SOFA a spokesperson tells ScienceInsider At last week’s meeting NWO President Stan Gielen said the funds Bruins has in mind are distributed by NWO but are earmarked by the Ministry of Education Culture and Science which would have to give permission Gielen added that any experiment should not come at the expense of existing funding Scheffer says he’s not giving up It’s not a risky experiment he says: “The money would not be wasted after all but just be given to other scientists” But he says he understands why NWO is not thrilled: If applied universally the novel system would make the agency redundant Perhaps it’s telling Scheffer says that he has not been invited to an international conference on applications and peer review that NWO is organizing in JuneWritten by Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: January 15 2009 2:10 am Related News All-rounder scores ton and snares 10 wkts Bista Jay proved to be the match-winner for Shardashram Vidyamandir Englishas he notched up an amazing all-round performance in a Giles Shield Cricket Elite Group Contest on Wednesday against IES Raja Shivaji school from Dadar He first notched up a brilliant 124 in the first inningsbefore scoring 49 in the secondas he led his team to a nine-wicket victory Jay also ended up with a ten-wicket match haulgrabbing 7-50 in the Dadar outfits first innings Balmohan Vidyamandir almost made a hash of chasing down a paltry target of 54but managed to prevail in the endas their last two batsmen dragged them home Shirgar Pure snared six wickets in Anjuman-I-Islams first inningswhile Nitish Gokhale and Batkar Suresh were among the wickets in their second innings Brief Scores Anjuman-I-Islam 123 (Shirgar Pure 6-12) and 59 (Gokhale Nitish 4-20Batkar Suresh 3-10) lost to Balmohan Vidyamandir (Dadar) 132 (Deven Karpe 54;

Top NewsSqueeze a baseball or pen between your thumb and the tips of your fingers: You are using what researchers call a precision grip a highly evolved adaptation thought to be unique to modern humans and our most recent ancestors Chimpanzees for example have thumbs too short to allow them to grip objects so precisely But a new study suggests that human ancestors in South Africa had a good grip perhaps as early as 3 million years ago—and so may have wielded stone tools earlier than expected Human ancestors have been handy since at least 26 million years ago when the earliest reliably identified stone tools appear in the fossil record at Gona Ethiopia But the identity of the first toolmaker has been mysterious because more than one type of hominin was alive 2 million to 3 million years ago: our genus Homo plus several species of Australopithecus including A africanus from South Africa and A afarensis—the species of the famous skeleton of Lucy who lived near Gona Stone tools have been found at sites with Australopithecus fossils as well as bones with possible cut marks dating back to 32 million to 34 million years ago but in the absence of a fossil hand gripping a tool it has been impossible to prove that australopithecines made and used tools To complicate matters further complete hand fossils—full of tiny fragile bones—are extremely rare Instead paleoanthropologists have had to rely on clues from traits in isolated finger bones such as a report in 2013 that our direct ancestor Homo erectus used a precision grip 17 million years ago And in 1997 a landmark study of a composite hand skeleton of Lucy’s species A afarensis suggested that Lucy lacked a full precision grip 31 million years ago but that her species had developed several but not all of the traits in its hand bones that are associated with the precision grip required for habitual toolmaking This hinted that the species was beginning to use its hands more like us perhaps for tool use A new method for analyzing CT scans of fossils however is giving paleoanthropologists a new more detailed look at the internal structure of hand bones revealing how their habitual handiwork shaped their hands during life In the report published online today in Science husband-and-wife team Matthew Skinner and Tracy Kivell both paleoanthropologists at the University of Kent and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology and their colleagues used CT scanners to examine the pattern of fossilized spongy bone tissue within finger and hand bones of hominins that lived 2 million to 3 million years ago When modern humans use a forceful precision grip frequently during childhood their bones adapt: Tiny spicules or filaments of bony tissue called trabeculae form and act as struts to provide more bone density—and strength—where the forces are greatest Gripping a tool distributes forces asymmetrically along the base of the thumb and the side of the knucklebones and modern hands show a corresponding pattern of trabecular density By contrast when chimps grip a branch the forces align across the thumb more evenly leaving a symmetrical pattern in the trabecular bone When the team scanned hand bones from four members of A africanus that lived in South Africa between 2 million and 3 million years ago they found that the pattern of the trabecular bone was asymmetrical as in modern humans and Neandertals that use tools frequently (as they also show in their study) This suggests that A africanus was using a “human-like” precision grip “much earlier and more frequently than previously considered” the authors write They stop short of saying that A africanus was using and making stone tools and acknowledge that these grips could have been used for a number of different activities with tools However the similarity of the pattern with modern humans suggests that hominins had the capacity for stone tool use more than half a million years before such tools are securely dated in the fossil record They also have scanned hand bones of other members of Australopithecus including Lucy’s species A afarensis but the pattern of use was not preserved in that species’s trabeculae The new method provides “solid evidence that A africanus was likely using forceful precision pinch grips” says ancient hand expert Matthew Tocheri of Lakehead University in Thunder Bay Canada and the Smithsonian Institution’s Human Origins Program in Washington DC But he notes that the evidence for tool use is still indirect To show that researchers will need to find stone tools at many early Australopithecus sites Other activities that the hominins engaged in frequently during development such as digging tubers or climbing might also explain the signs of stress warns paleoanthropologist C Owen Lovejoy of Kent State University in Ohio Future studies will be needed to see if this pattern is found just in A africanus or in other members of Australopithecus as well says paleoanthropologist Brian Richmond of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City Regardless of the precise cause Tocheri says: “It provides further support for the hypothesis that australopithecines … actually used their hands in more humanlike ways” “Everything in a museum is static, in two years we have cleared proposals of new industries to the tune of Rs 95, Tom Alter was
