What I have been saying earlier. Tax base in India is small primarily because there are not enough people with taxable income.

Also just like HM, JEM, LET Pak could have revived IM after Bhatkal arrest (2013) under someone else. Now you can argue Pak was kind and tolerant. I will argue RS and AD did a good job.

IMO all restrictions on movement of people within India should go. However, the restrictions in the north-east have been there since British days. Since they are now peaceful areas beneficial engagement is necessary to overturn those rules. There is already talk of easing ILP rules to ensure more to...

I am still looking for news source but it seems Indian trade (goods plus services) over the last 12 months has crossed the $1 trillion mark. Don't know if it is a first.

Also as long as KMs control the state Jammu and Ladakh will be short changed. You can't change that by dictat from Delhi.

You are wrong on all counts. Art 35A is the key. Here is why. Art 35A ensures that no one outside J&K can settle permanently in J&K. Due to higher birth rates the population in Kashmir is increasing compared to Jammu and Ladakh. Therefore how does it matter if people from Jammu and Ladakh mo...

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

Currency devaluation as a principle or tool of export gain is a never ending pit. As someone mentioned above innovate and produce stuff that the world needs.

PS: No matter how much Trump jumps up and down except hi-end manufacturing the rest is unviable to produce in advanced economies.

Re: India's Power Sector

Bad suggestion. Subsidies once given are difficult to take back and pushes the sector towards bankruptcy. Bite the bullet. Give 24X7 power at market price except agriculture which in India is unviable and work on the economy. The PM did that when he was CM.
