between 12 trillion to 28 trillion dollars if it is able to close the gender gap World Bank chief executive officer Kristalina Georgieva said that no country can achieve its full potential unless girls and women have the same rights as boys and men Addressing the World Assembly for Women in Tokyo Georgieva said that estimates on what the full participation of women would mean to the whole world is “mind-boggling” She said “The estimates range between 12 trillion and 28 trillion dollar bigger world economy if we women were all to give our best” She added “If we leave this issue to its own device it will take a hundred years to achieve equality Gender equality is paramount for success in development efforts Unless girls and women have the same rights as boys and men no country can attain its full potential” She gave the instance of how the case for gender equality is more than obvious in Japan where data shows that bringing full participation of women in the economy means 9 percent larger GDP To close the gap the Shinzo Abe government has now introduced a slew of women-oriented work reforms such as longer childcare leave for both parents and flexible working hours Georgieva added that attaining gender equality means among other things ensuring girls are in school and economic empowerment which gives women the choice on what to do and what not to do Citing the case of Afghanistan where 15 years ago of the one million children in school 90 percent were boys she said “Today eight million kids are in school and 40 percent of these are girls despite tremendous

years of fighting The rebel withdrawal will pave the way for President Bashar al-Assad’s forces to reclaim complete control of Syria’s second city handing the regime its biggest victory in more than five years of civil war More than a dozen empty buses and several ambulances moved towards a staging area in the south of the city where evacuees were expected to arrive and board the vehicles an AFP

Jat heartland of Haryana comprising the districts of Rohtak Jind Bhiwani Sonepat Hisar Kurukshetra Rewari and Kaithal the khap panchayats still decide the political choices the members of the community make Over the years they have stopped being vocal about their support to any particular political group yet it is their support that mostly decides elections in the state No wonder they are being wooed heavily by all major political parties – the Congress the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) or the BJP – in the run-up to the polls A file photo of a khap panchayat’s members Reuters In the last two general elections the Jat votes had tilted in favour of the Congress to some extent under the influence of khap panchayats Some of them had openly extended their support to the party much to the discomfiture of the INLD However the Congress appears to be out of favour this time The panchayats are seething in anger over growing unemployment rising corruption and the worsening conditions of the farmers who feel cheated for having been coerced into selling their land to land sharks government and the corporate houses at low prices Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda himself a Jat had to face the ire of his community at some places for having favoured only the Rohtak district to which he belongs Hooda who is facing a strong anti-incumbency wave is making desperate efforts to win over the khaps In the first such move in the direction last year Hooda ensured reservation to the Jat community last year But things had gone awry much before leading to violence and the shooting of three persons by the police in Hisar during a sustained agitation launched by the community During the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections the Haryana Congress has been harping on the reservation issue but things reportedly are not working according to its plan Yashpal leader of the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Arakshan Sangathan says: "As a social organization we have tried to remain non-political as far as possible but we did have expectations from the Congress The party however did not extend any support to the khaps The claims of the Congress of having provided reservations to the Jats is a sham We got reservation as a result of our long-drawn agitation" he says Another Khap leader Dharampal says the organization was maintaining equal distance from all parties "We have not issued any `fatwa’ or `farman’ for the Jats during the election Had it not been for the sacrifice of the Jats during the struggle on the reservation issue the community would not have been successful at all The Congress is a party ruled by people involved in scams and scandals Yeh to ghotala walon ki party hai" charges Dharampal Santosh Dahiya state President of the Akhil Bhartiya Shakti Mahila Manch the women’s wing of the Sarv Jatiya Sarv Khap Mahapanchayat says their organization is neither favouring nor opposing any political party "We will support candidates who have a clean image and are not involved in any scandal" she declares The Congress under Hooda however has got support from Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti and some other khaps A group of khaps resently organized a public honour programme for Hooda and Randeep Singh Surjewala another prominent Jat leader and the Industries Minister of Haryana at Denoda village in Narwana Jind Incidentally Jind is considered the stronghold of the Chautalas "We are openly supporting the Chief Minister and his MP son Deepinder Hooda We are thankful to the duo for ensuring reservation for Jats" says Hawa Singh Sangwan State president of Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti Similarly Jorawar Singh Sangwan chief of Sangwan Khap admitted they were supporting the Congress candidate Shruti Chowdhry in Bhiwani-Mahendergarh The Meham Chaubisi Khap reportedly is divided over support to the Congress and the INLD Kuldeep Dhanda Convenor of the Sarv Khap Panchayat says they have two demands – amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act to prevent youngsters from marrying in the

Fair Play (FFP) regulations designed to prevent clubs from spending more than their generated revenue in 2012 (Source: AP) Top News European soccer’s governing body UEFA would seriously consider introducing a salary cap to help level an increasingly uneven playing field in the sport its president was quoted as saying on Friday A cap would be aimed at bridging the gulf between Europe’s wealthiest clubs and the rest of the field as well as preventing the top teams from stockpiling players on their payrolls “The wealthiest clubs are only getting richer and the gap between them and the rest is getting bigger” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin told Mladina a weekly magazine based in Ljubljana “In future we will have to take into serious consideration the possibility of limiting clubs’ budgets for players’ wages” he added without specifying a timeframe On the issue of bloated squads he said many leading clubs bought players they don’t need “and who end up playing nowhere” “The introduction of a salary cap would force clubs to be more rational It will be a big battle and winning it would in my opinion represent an historic change” UEFA introduced Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations designed to prevent clubs from spending more than their generated revenue in 2012 But it softened the rules three years later to try to encourage new and sustainable investment in European club soccer Ceferin who succeed Michel Platini as UEFA president in September after the former France international was banned from all football-related activities for ethics violations also said the organisation had no plans yet to introduce video assistance in matches The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system is currently being trialled at the Confederations Cup in Russia as a dry run for next year’s World Cup “VAR will require a lot of testing to convince me” the 49-year old Slovenian said “We do not reject technology but UEFA has no plans yet to introduce the Video Assistant Referee Granted the goalline technology has panned out nicely despite its many critics “However we must not destroy the game’s flow by letting the action get held up for several minutes every 10 minutes” VAR has been used frequently at the Confederations Cup where world champions Germany and South American champions Chile meet in Sunday’s final in St Petersburg The system has helped referees

Bhanu Mehta | Updated: November 27 2014 5:14 am The besetting sin of government now is casualness more than venality Related News As expectations for reform soar it is important to remind ourselves of the nature and magnitude of the challenge There is much talk about second-generation reforms But as one smart government official quipped: Forget second-generation reforms India needs minus-one generation reforms We don’t even know what we are facing Political stability the RBI’s determined effort to fight inflation (despite big business engaging in ideological obfuscation) and changing international circumstances have altered the mood But the underlying rot is deep Its surface has yet to be scratched Too much energy is being expended on reforms that are besides the point rather than on credible fundamentals Just imagine this Structural regulatory uncertainty continues to affect about a quarter of India’s economy in sectors like mining natural resources any investment involving land This has large indirect effects There is always some uncertainty and dispute in an economy But structural regulatory uncertainty basically means that a pricing mechanism has irrevocably broken down You can have either a market mechanism or an administered price mechanism The problem is that we do not have either that is credible Prime Minister Narendra Modi was right to say in Australia that reform by stealth does not work What it ended up creating was institutions that had neither the old certainties of state-set prices in areas like coal nor fully developed markets Add to this the fact that the legal landscape has now become incredibly complicated: The coal judgment for example does not just raise questions about the method of giving mining licences; it has implications for federalism and who should be issuing them But we underestimate this fact The regulatory web is now so tangled that you don’t quite know what will happen if you pull at one string This history of regulatory reform in India with a few exceptions has ended up muddying the landscape rather than clarifying it Two of the most critical sectors for the economy health and education exhibit these characteristics The single biggest mistake of the right to education for instance was to muddy the distinction between public and private Instead of saying let the public do its job and the private its function we now have a regulatory system than distorts both irretrievably And now it is proving near impossible to set the system right The health sector is a combination of laissez faire and half-baked regulatory interventions And each attempt to reform the system makes it more vulnerable There is no reliable measure of inflation in these two sectors either which probably has a greater effect on the rest of the economy than we realise All factors of production still face pricing and structural uncertainty Add to this the quiet chaos in the financial system The Indian banking system was not good at assessing projects or pricing risk Or rather what it was good at was assessing risk in the context of a closed loop of crony capitalism where you could count on renegotiated contracts unscrutinised gold-plating and government patronage But there are two problems The first is whether there will be a banking culture that can price risk and promote innovation The jury is out on this one The second is this: The lines of credit look more like electricity wires in a standard Indian city — so tangled that you don’t know what you will short circuit if you try and straighten and clean them up What will be needed for reforms under the circumstances of such regulatory mess The first thing is a war against casualness The besetting sin of government now is casualness more than venality It thinks it can wing regulatory reform The finance minister glibly concedes that the land acquisition bill was passed in a moment of populist casualness Is there any evidence that any proposed reforms to this act will not also be equally casual in the other direction After all it is the same lot now trying to reverse course The government is underestimating the degree to which some exceptions apart the bureaucracy has atrophied — to the point that you cannot expect nuance or thoroughness from most departments The one thing you could count on the IAS for — saving you from legal trouble — is no longer a virtue that exists We don’t see the support scaffolding in place Second in none of these sectors is there a clear and precise articulation with appropriate nuance of the problem you are trying to fix This is especially so in the land debate where we are pretending as if we fully understand what we are trying to fix There is also a corresponding casualness in talk of taxes deficits and so forth Containing deficits is important But you cannot restore growth dynamism without increased public investment There is a deep disjuncture between the finance minister’s talk of lowering tax burdens and tight fiscal deficits on one hand and the prime minister’s infrastructure dreams on the other The government has not made a credible case for how it proposes to square the circle More public investment in a broken system of rules creates its own problems but the intellectual groundwork for it needs to be done The second challenge in this Unfortunately economies don’t come with a clean slate There are too many sunk costs in different sectors And creating new competencies takes time Under such circumstances the path to a new equilibrium is messy: it often involves cutting deals so that the costs of the new path are minimised Banks will have to sit down with those in their debt and in many cases cut deals Your problem is this: Will the forms of legal political and public scrutiny allow for some sensible deals or will these get stuck in the logjam of recrimination Which bankers will feel empowered to sign on them Tocqueville’s warning that governments feel vulnerable when they try to reform is still apt Crafting reform requires recognising the depth of the rot But rather than creating a climate for nuance the depth of the rot often emboldens calls for more of a slash-and-burn exercise especially when the state has low credibility This is why governments still find it hard to come clean After Modi’s call what is preventing the government from producing an analytically sound honest and credible white paper on the rot in several sectors — infrastructure power banking credit possibly land and even the growth framework Reform by stealth is not easy to give up in a system where you can be for good reason damned if you do and damned if you don’t The writer is president Centrefor Policy Research Delhi anda contributing editor for‘The Indian
