UPA delays led to Rs. 1.2 lakh crore losses to treasury

UPA delays led to Rs. 1.2 lakh crore losses to treasury

UPA delays led to Rs. 1.2 lakh crore losses to treasuryUnder the command of Dr Manmohan Singh, India has lost an astounding Rs 1, 16,724 crore because of cost-overruns in 203 infrastructure projects.

These official figures were revealed by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, which monitors the 600 infrastructure projects that cost over Rs 150 crore each.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

Rs 1,16,724 crore is indeed a big hole in the country’s finances. It’s well over twice the current Bihar budget of Rs 53,927 crore. This money could also be used to build more than 11,000 Kendriya Vidyalayas at Rs 10.5 crore per building. It’s also almost as huge as the estimated Rs 1,50,000 crore 2G scam that’s rocking Parliament these days.

Is Dr Singh awake to these facts?

Cost overruns are half the story; they go hand in hand with delayed execution. More than half of these projects-306-have gone well beyond their completion schedule, the range of delay spanning a continuum of despair from one to 225 months. Not surprisingly, most of the projects in the rail ministry fall in the “slow progress” bracket. The ministry cites land acquisition and fund constraints as a major cause of the delays.

Former finance minister Yashwant Sinha is appalled. “It is a scandalous situation. Every government has the responsibility to streamline cost-overruns and time delays. BJP showed its concern and created a monitoring unit by setting up the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation with a driven minister like Arun Shourie in charge of it,” he says.

Rajeev Chandrasekhar, industrialist and independent Rajya Sabha MP, said the present approach of UPA to the whole issue is tentative and amateurish & the PMO monitoring to accelerate infrastructure projects is a flawed model.

UK service sector demonstrates surprise growth in October

UK service sector demonstrates surprise growth in October

UK service sector demonstrates surprise growth in OctoberBusiness activity showed unexpectedly growth in October according to the UK services survey. The survey revealed was better than expected at 53.2, which was up from 52.8 in September and the forecasted 52.5.

However, austerity measures by government weighed on expectations and employment levels of companies. After the survey results were disclosed, the pound rose to its highest level against the dollar for nine months to $1.6136.

From Guardian.co.uk:

Indeed, the UK services survey is already out and it showed business activity unexpectedly growing in October. The index figure of 53.2 was up from 52.8 in September and better than the forecast 52.5. But worries about the government’s austerity measures weighed on companies’ expectations and employment levels. After yesterday’s disappointing construction figures raised the prospect of further quantitative easing from the Bank of England, the services survey points in the opposite direction. But Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight said there was no clear picture either way:

The October services sector survey fails to provide major ammunition to either the more hawkish or more dovish members of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee. Consequently, we believe that the odds heavily favour the MPC keeping interest rates down at 0.50% at the end of their November meeting on Thursday and holding fire for now at least on further Quantitative Easing. However, a three-way split vote looks very much on the cards.

In the wake of the survey the pound rose to its highest level against the dollar for nine months to $1.6136 while the euro slipped from 87.33p to 87.08p. The FTSE 100 has continued to rise and is now up 15.61 points at 5773.04.

The euro slipped from 87.33p to 87.08p after the survey results.
