At the same timethere is little sign that inflation will come down soon Month-on-month seasonally adjusted inflation based on the consumer price index is showing that inflation for the next five months is likely to be high Even after that there is no indication that price rise will slow down What might be the best way for the government to stabilise the economy Considering the multiple problems facing the economythere is clearly no single magic bullet The government will have to adopt a multi-pronged approach For examplethere needs to be one set of strategies to address the question of investment plans and the implementation of existing projects that will work towards pushing growth Interest rate policy should not be used to push growth It should be used only to fight inflation In the next few daysthe government must swing into action to free up blocked investment projects It must work with the relevant ministriesand courtsto find out ways to move ahead faster If norms have been violated and this implies that fines will need to be imposedor other action is requiredor if additional environmental standards need to be metthe government must get that process under way as soon as possible Long delays lock up financesget companies and banks into troubleand slow down the economy In the longer termimproving the investment climate will require an array of reforms Reducing uncertainty in investment and project implementation is an important element of economic policy While on one handunearthing corruption is good for the countryon the otherit implies a change in the way people do business The old ways of using political influence or money power and being helped by a politician or bureaucrat who would assist in removing the various hurdles in the way of a project are no longer going to be as easy under a more transparent system and a more cautious bureaucracy Moving away from the present ad hoc system towards one where there are well-defined rules and standards for environmentland rights and forest rights is now needed For this purposethe prime minister should set up task forces to review rules and laws proposed for land acquisitionenvironmentforest rights to ensure that while there is no violation of peoples fundamental rights or undue destruction of our countrys natural resourceswe do not make it impossible for honest entrepreneurs and investors to do business In additionthere is the usual laundry list of economic reforms that have been much debated and can help ease the current economic difficulties The problem of inflation is the other big issue that has been mishandled by the present regime If bad news on the economy comes inthe pressure on the government to ease monetary policy could also increase It will be a mistake to ease monetary policy at this stagewhen inflationary expectations are high In order to avoid taking the blame for raising interest ratesthe politicians of many countries have redefined the role of central banks as one where their primary objective is price stability Tightening monetary policy is the hardest during stagflation as industry lobbying for easing increases The best policy at this time would be to change the institutional arrangement for inflation control and to give the RBI a clear mandate to focus on price stability Not only is it important for the government to implement this strategyit should communicate it adequately to the public In the last few yearsformer finance minister Pranab Mukherjee often made statements that amounted to suggesting that the instrument to address economic growth was the interest rateand that the RBI is not an independent central bank whose objective is price stabilityimplying that interest rate policy in India can be used to push growth at the cost of inflation The government needs to change this perception The mismanagement of the economy is translating into lower job growth and higher prices that hit the voter The government must act urgently The

get to see as many flowers as they had expected Vishnu Kirdat head of Joint Forest Management Committee (JFMC) said “Every year the Kaas Plateau opens for the public by the end of July This year however we opened it for the visitors on September 1 as only 20 per cent of the total flowers had bloomed on the plateau However people are being misguided on the social media with old photos of flowers in full bloom and thus there has been a rush of visitors The flowers will bloom completely by Dussehra but by that time the grass will be longer So flowers spotting will be difficult” Kirdat

is Rs 100 per person on all days and only 3000 visitors are allowed to visit in a day While the total revenue collection on Saturday was Rs 35 lakh it was Rs 5 lakh on Sunday The UNESCO World Heritage

war in southern Afghanistan Kandahar Air Field seemed destined to quietly shut down this year as part of a US withdrawal that had already thinned its numbers But now there appears to be growing signs that fate might be postponed if only for a bit as the United States weighs slowing the pace of the drawdown from Afghanistan New US Defense Secretary Ash Carter visited the sprawling complex on Sunday but kept reporters guessing whether he thought it should remain operational longer – keeping a US toe-hold in an important region of Afghanistan "My advice needs to go first to the president" Carter told reporters during his first trip since swearing-in on Tuesday The prospect of exiting Kandahar altogether has sounded alarms in Washington where Republican lawmakers critical of President Barack Obama’s withdrawal strategy note the region’s importance to Taliban militants and the threat they pose "Kandahar is just not a spot on the map That’s the spiritual home of the Taliban" Republican Senator Lindsey Graham declared at a Senate hearing this month The Islamic State’s rise in Iraq following the US withdrawal is stoking anxiety about potential backsliding in Afghanistan as Obama pursues plans to cut the roughly 10000 US troops by nearly half this year and then slash them further to an embassy presence at the end of 2016 Kandahar Air Field is already a shadow of its former self with just 2600 coalition forces down from a peak of 26000 Still it offers the United States important capabilities for advising Afghans and aiding counter-terrorism efforts The head of the Afghan National Army’s 205th corps in Kandahar told Carter’s delegation that America’s contributions were vital according to one US official Major General Abdullah Hamid said "I need you to be here" the official recounted paraphrasing Carter praised US forces in Kandahar during his visit "We’ve given so much to create the conditions here that you now see in front of you where the Afghan security
