Macroeconomic Policy

In a surprise move, the Govt of India has forced 10 Public Sector Banks to sign an MoU in return for a small amount of capital. Many wonder why an MoU was required and why Unions and Associations are expected to sign. Is this a blank cheque for privatisation? Is it like taking the consent of a sacrificial goat by applying turmeric and water and getting its nod before sacrifice? The Government is like a parent and Public Sector Banks are like children. Will the parent take an undertaking from a child? These are questions which have to be answered by the Government.

The advertisements of Airtel Payment Bank showing crowded branches, indifferent staff and different interest rates have been prepared to show public sector banks in poor light and an abuse on the employees of Public Sector Banks. It says why the Banks have to be like this? The ethics to be followed in advertisement is completely given a go by.

Post-Trump expectations of a shift back from an easy monetary policy with low interest rates to reliance on a fiscal stimulus for growth are reversing trends in global bond markets.

Banks strapped with stressed assets are holding back on lending, dampening in the process the principal stimulus to growth in recent years. And there are no alternative routes to growth in sight.

The damage to the reputation of banks and its employees, which and who have been victims of the engineered cash shortage, is likely to be aggravated by the adverse effects the demonetisation may have for the already damaged profit and loss accounts and balance sheets of the banks.

Whether the demonetisation scheme declared through the November 8 notification qualifies as a fiscal or economic policy is a vital question that merits the attention of the Supreme Court.
