Re: Tracking India's Admission into International Groups

It is un heard of for India to be doing these kind of hard push to get to the high table of world diplomacy that matches its demographic, economic and technical foot print. I am sure all these hard push , is part of a well choreographed plan, to eventually get into these high tables. We just need to...

Re: India's Power Sector

The cost is about rs 2/unit for purchase by distribution companies but becomes 10/unit when it reaches consumer. This 5 times multiplier is normal by world standard? I feel that this is the middle man story in here also. They need to be cut down for consumer to get a lower cost.

if this surplus is not matched by a decrease in consumer tariff then the impact will not be felt on the ground. The tariff is steep in Bengal. I play almost Rs. 10 per unit. This is in a state where free electricity is no longer a vote bank politics.

The key difference between indian manufactuting and Chinese manufacturing is that the former will cater to local consumption first while the later to the foreign consumption first. The first approach has greater chances of doing innovation and drive service consumption.
