AAT News Service

VER the last little less


than a decade, around
35,000 people have
been died, highest being 6,423
in West Bengal and 3,768 in
Andhra Pradesh & Telangana.
These are not figures of deaths
in Naxal violence. These people
have died of acute respiratory
infection (ARI). They can also
be called deaths due to air pollution.
The Central government has
admitted that 38,000 people
have died in the country over
the last 9 years due to causes
linked to air pollution. The capital, which has notorious distinction of being one of the mostpolluted cities in the world, has
1,557 deaths recorded because
of air pollution.
As per the data released by
the Ministry of Environment &
Forests, as many as 3.48-crore
cases of ARI were reported in
2014, which means that 95,000
Indians of all ages were reporting ARI every day.
Although, the international
studies have attributed far more
deaths due to air pollution in India, there was rare official admission that pollution could be
causing deaths on a large scale.
Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic
bronchitis are some of the diseases caused by exposure to
increasing air pollution.
When the US President,
Barack Obama, was in India as
guest at its Republic Day parade
this year, Delhis worsening air
quality made headlines in the
world media. Mr. President,
worlds worst air is taking 6
hours of your life, said a wire
agency report.
Delhi has worlds worst level
of particulate matter (PM)2.5,
tiny toxic particles that lead to
respiratory diseases, lung cancer and heart attacks. The Indian capital averaged 153 micrograms per cubic metre in
2013, the President was warned
quoting the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the WHO data,
India is home to 11 of the top 20
most-polluted cities in the world.
The worst US city comes 162 in
the list. A recent random survey

by a hospital found 25 per cent


of traffic policemen in Delhi suffering from breathing disorders.
During the survey conducted
to mark the World Asthma Day,
the hospital screened 160 men
of Delhi Traffic Police. Some of
the major pollutants that affect
the health are: carbon monox-

so small that they can gel into

Obamas visit to Delhi, pollution
levels of PM2.5 averaged between 76 to 84 micrograms per

said, was equivalent to smoking

POLLUTION,
THE SILENT
killer stalking

Indian cities
According to the World Health Organization data,
India is home to 11 of the top 20 most-polluted
cities in the world. Delhi suffers from air pollution
also caused by dust and industry. Unclean engines
on road contribute to the pollution. Road dust and
industries contribute a whopping 50 per cent and
23 per cent, respectively to air pollution

ide, sulphur oxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, ozone and


PM.
What is PM2.5?
Particles less than or equal to
10 micrometers in diameter

eight cigarettes a day.


Air pollution slashes life expectancy by 3.2 years for 660million Indians who live in cities.
A study by The Lancet in 2012
ranked air pollution as one of
the biggest killers in India. Besides, Delhi which topped air

pollution, other cities that were


ranked as having high-pollution
levels are: Amritsar, Ludhiana,
Nashik and Mumbai.
The National Green Tribunal
(NGT) has slammed the Central
and state governments on the
issue of deteriorating air quality.
Neither the Central nor the state
government (of Delhi) are owning up responsibility for growing
pollution, the tribunal said, recently asking whether the governments had no responsibility
towards children suffering from
the menace.
Even as the Indian capital
continues to be one of the most
polluted in the world, there is a
controversy over what causes
pollution in Delhi. A study commissioned by the Transport Ministry and conducted by Delhi IIT
had concluded that ban on

diesel vehicles of more than 10


years (which formed only 7 per
cent of the capital vehicle fleet)
as ordered by the NGT
would lead to mere 1 per cent
reduction in PM2.5 air pollution
in Delhi.
As the government contests
the ban ordered by the Tribunal,
more and more studies point out
to alarming levels of pollution in
Delhi. Media reports quoted a
Boston-based Health Effect Institute concluding that, as vehicular emissions takes place at
human breathing zones, these
have severe health consequences in the long run.
The Centre of Science and
Environment (CSE), a reputed
NGO in a recent report said that
congestion and pollution are polluting Delhis suburbs. The CSE
carried out a detailed study of

the South Delhi suburb saying


that the areas suffered from congestion and parking pressure.
Delhi suffers from air pollution also caused by dust and industry. Unclean engines on road
contribute to the pollution. Road
dust and industries contribute a
whopping 50 per cent and 23
per cent, respectively to air pollution although expert contest
the figures.
An average adult takes 15
to 20 breaths a minute over
20,000 breaths in a day. When
one breathes, the respiratory
systems nose, throat, windpipe and lungs bring air into
the body. In the lungs, oxygen
from each breath is transferred
to the blood stream and sent to
all the bodys cells as life-sustaining fuel. Keeping the lungs
healthy is essential for a healthy

body.
According to American
Lungs Association, the quality of
air affects the body. Unhealthy
air can threaten life itself. Air pollution continues to be a widespread problem in the US. Although natural defenses protect
lungs from germs and large particles, air pollution can harm the
lung tissues directly.
Air pollution can make eyes
water, irritate nose, mouth &
throat and make one cough &
wheeze. It can also worsen lung
diseases like asthma & bronchitis and in some cases it can
even kill one.
If Delhis air pollution
grabbed headlines during
Obamas visit, pollution in the
Chinese capital keeps hitting
headlines. The chocking smog
in Beijing in the winters of 201213 drew attention of the world,
forcing the Chinese government
to take a serious note of air pollution.
The government set up a national air reporting system. This
system pumps hourly reports of
six important pollutants, including the particulate matter less
than PM2.5 microns in diameter.
Air pollution levels in China
have reached catastrophic levels. Berkeley Earth, a US-based
NGO working on climate science says, air pollution kills an
average of 4,000 people every
day in China, which accounts for
17 per cent of all China deaths.
More than 12,200 coal-fired boilers and factories in polluting industries suspended production
from August-end in a bid to
prove air quality for the Army parade of September 3, 2015.
The restrictions which include vehicular traffic covered
Beijing and the surrounding areas. With 2022 Winter Olympics
set to take place in Beijing, environment is likely to stay in focus.
A recent AP report quoted a
WHO expert saying that the
government figures show that
there is some improvement in
Beijings air quality since last
Olympics.
Back home, as governments
argue it out before the NGT, air
quality in Delhi as also the pollution of river Yamuna continue
to be at harmful levels.

The economy is recovering, which is consistent with other more


high-frequency indicators, such as revenue collections, real credit growth,
etc. One real challenge that looms ahead appears not to be price inflation,
but possibly price deflation
AAT News Service

NDIAN economy as per the


recently-released Q1 GDP
data of the current financial
year 2015-16, price-wise, appears to be in or close to deflation territory.
The Chief Economic Adviser,
Arvind Subramanian, in a statement with regards to the GDP
data said, at a time of sharp declines in the price of oil, which
led to sharp changes in indirect
tax collections and subsidy payments, national income data
have to be interpreted with
care.
There are two measures of
aggregate economic activity:
gross value added (GVA) at basic prices and gross domestic
product (GDP) at market prices.
Essentially, GDP at market
prices is the value of goods and
services that are paid for by consumers which is allocated between the factors of production
(measured by GVA) and the
government. Hence, the basic
national income identity: GDP =
GVA + net indirect taxes (NIT),
which is equal to indirect taxes
less subsidies.
At a time of sharp declines
in the price of oil, which led to
sharp changes in indirect tax
collections and subsidy payments, national income data
have to be interpreted with
care, said Mr Subramanian.
The issue that arises is how
to derive estimates of NIT at
constant prices, given that the
data are collected at current
prices. The procedure followed
by the Central Statistics Office
(CSO), which is entirely consistent with recommended interna-

tional practice for quarterly estimates, can be intuitively understood as follows:


Under this procedure, indirect taxes are assumed to grow
in line with the relevant tax base,
which consists of the value of
imports, manufacturing and
services (in the case of subsidies, the CSO uses the GDP deflator to arrive at constant price
estimates).
Normally, this procedure
would appropriately capture the

stantially by 40 per cent in


nominal terms in the latest quarter the GDP estimates will
have to be interpreted with particular caution because of the
commensurate potential for understating GDP growth.
The most striking implication
of the latest GDP estimates relates to prices. Prices, measured by the deflator for GVA,
grew at 0.1 per cent. And prices,
measured by the deflator for
GDP, grew at 1.7 per cent ac-

reality. However, these are unusual times, because indirect


taxes have been increasing
sharply and subsidies have
been declining dramatically.
During such times, the recommended international practice, by construction, will lead to
tax increases in excess of the
growth in the tax base for example, due to increases in tax
rates or improvements in collection efficiency not being fully
captured in measured GDP.
Since NIT increased sub-

cording to the latest estimates.


Even this estimate for
growth of the GDP deflator could
be overstated, if real GDP
growth is potentially understated
for reasons mentioned above.
Price-wise, the economy appears to be in or close to deflation territory.
In the light of the above explanation, GVA estimates, at this
stage, are perhaps a more reliable indicator of underlying economic activity. Measured by
GVA, growth increased to 7.1

per cent in Q1 FY 2016 from 6.1


per cent in Q4 FY 2015. Directionally, the latest data suggest
that economy is recovering,
which is consistent with other
more high-frequency indicators,
such as revenue collections,
real credit growth, etc.
This directional change, ie,
an improvement in growth from
Q4 FY 2015 to Q1 FY 2016
could also be indicated by the
GDP estimates if they are adjusted for the reasons mentioned above in line with the
practices used for annual estimates.
This is in contrast to current
estimates that suggest a decline
from 7.5 per cent in Q4 FY 2015
to 7 per cent in Q1 FY 2016. In
other words, the headline GDP
growth number could also be indicating that the economy is recovering and not slowing down.
Growth has been spread
between manufacturing (7.2 per
cent in Q1 FY 2016) and services (8.9 per cent in Q1 FY
2016). On the demand side,
growth is being driven by private consumption (7.4 per cent
in Q1 FY 2016), but fixed capital formation has also shown
signs of improvement, increasing from 4.1 per cent in the Q4
FY 2015 to 4.9 per cent in Q1
FY 2016.
Overall, economic growth is
moving in the right direction, although its pace is still below
what the economy needs, but a
pace that is expected to pick up
in response to the ongoing reforms. And one real challenge
that looms ahead appears not
to be price inflation, but possibly
price deflation, said Mr Subramanian.

answering an identical question


on February 25, 2015, the government assured the members
of the Lok Sabha that reducing
costs to retain the competitiveness of nuclear power is an ongoing effort.
In respect of indigenouslydesigned PHWRs, efforts in this
regard have included increasing
unit size from 220 MW to 540
MW and further to 700 MW to
gain from economies of scale,
standardisation, improvement in
design and efficiency, and optimisation of gestation period. In
respect of projects to be set up
with foreign co-operation, the
measures include adopting appropriate business models to arrive at competitive cost, added
the government.
The cost of electric power
in India varies from 79 paise to
1,367 paise. NPCIL has been
selling from TAPS 1&2, the lowest non-hydel power in India
for many years. The cheapest
power comes from hydel
sources. Exercising the power
vested in the Central government under sub-section-1 of
Section 22 of the Atomic Energy
Act, 1962, the DAE fixes nuclear
power tariff based on the recommendations of an Expert
Committee set up by the department itself.
The Gazette notification dated December 13, 2010 specified
factors, such as the plant load
factors for different types of reactors, auxiliary power consumption, cost adjustments for
nuclear fuel, heavy water, heavy
water make up, operation and
maintenance charges, financial
norms, including provisions for
taxation among others to arrive
at the tariff. The notification stated that the tariff shall be revised
once in five years. The nuclear
critics making their own calculations are apparently not aware
of the DAE notification on nuclear tariffs.
Interestingly, the notification
sets apart 2 paise per unit towards decommissioning charges.
With the auxiliary power consumption of 10 per cent (auxiliary
power is consumed at the station.
It is not available at the grid)
during 2013-14, NPCIL collected
` 636 million for decommissioning expenses.

ANAGEMENT of urbanisation is the most complex problem facing India


today. The challenges of providing water, power, sanitation, education and other facilities have

ISRO has come a long way
since its inception in 1969. The
relevance of space research was
questioned by many at that time.
In words of the late APJ Abdul
Kalam, many individuals with
myopic vision questioned the
relevance of space activities in
a newly-independent nation,
which was finding it difficult to
feed its population. Their vision
was clear if Indians were to play
meaningful role in the community
of nations, they must be second
to none in the application of advanced technologies to their reallife problems.
Indias entry into the space
arena was led by the visionary
scientist, Vikram Sarabhai, who
foresaw the tremendous potential
of space technology and its applications in addressing the
needs of our countrys development. Countering the challenges
of scarce resources, limited technical manpower and physical infrastructure in the early years,
ISRO has today established operational space systems and

being planned for mapping and
identifying the vulnerability of
each monument and for preparing plans to track and mitigate
environmental or weather
changes that may have an adverse impact on fragile monuments.
Indigenisation
Self-reliance and development
of indigenous technology is a
key policy of ISRO and its success in this endeavour can be
seen in the areas of launch vehicles, satellites, communication,
meteorology, space science and
establishing of the required
ground infrastructure.
Science and technology is
a key driver for shaping the destiny of nations and people across
the globe. Technology is built
not so much by individuals, but
by organisations. The characteristics of organisations their
leaders, their structures and
their cultures have a great bearing on catalysing innovations
and putting them to use for the
benefit of society.
ISRO is one such Indian organisation, which has nurtured,
developed and demonstrated
world-class capabilities. Even
as it has sought to encompass
the globe and reach for the
stars, it has remained rooted in
its core mission of national regeneration and improving the
life of the common man, a goal
set for the nation by Mahatma
Gandhi.

Shortage of labour attaches at


Indian missions, a drawback
From Page 1

HE committee set up by
Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs submitted a draft
migration policy about five years
ago. But the Emigration Management Bill is still waiting to be
placed in the public domain for
debate, said S Irudaya Rajan,
who heads the MOIAs Research
Unit on International Migration,
in a recent article.
According to him, there are
three stages in a migrants life:
the time before departure, the
time spent in the new country,
and the rehabilitation process
after return. India is probably
the only country in the world
where migration is managed by
three different ministries: the
passport is issued by the Ministry
of External Affairs, emigration
clearance comes from MOIA and
departures are managed by Bureau of Migration of the Ministry
of Home Affairs.
A major drawback of the existing system is the application
of the Emigration Act of 1983.
The Act brought into force a new
system of emigration clearance,

under which no Indian citizen


was permitted to emigrate without the governments authorisation. Subsequently, subscribing
to the logic of protection by exception two kinds of passports
have been created: Emigration
check required and emigration
check not required.
Emigration clearance is man-

aged from just nine locations


across India, with an approved
1,439 recruitment agencies as
of 2012. Of these, about 58 per
cent exist only on paper.
Equally bad is the cost of
migration. According to the Kerala Migration Survey 2008, a
person migrating from Kerala
to Saudi Arabia spent ` 74,606

almost four times more that


the Protector General of Emigrants approved service charge
of ` 20,000 for unskilled workers.
Nurses report that they pay
about ` 3 lakh at the time of recruitment. As Indian workers,
both skilled and unskilled, are
in demand everywhere. The
costs of migration should be
brought down to a minimum or
to zero cost of migration, he
says.
Another problem is at the
destination where workers depend on the Indian Embassies.
For instance, in both Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which hosts
about 20-lakh Indian migrants
each, the direct contact for most
workers on any issue is the
labour attaches affiliated to the
Indian Embassy. In both countries, only two labour attaches
are available in both embassies.
Needless to say, this is totally
inadequate.
He argues that it is high time
India gave its migrant workers
their share of rights in return for
the amount the country receives
in remittance. A strong migration
policy is the only way forward.

work brings with it
a number of
benefits. But make
sure you spend the
time productively

but can be tailored to meet your


needs. Some companies may
offer this in their benefits package. As engineering can be a
stressful career choice, these
