Bangladesh could have still mounted a fightback despite losing five wickets.Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar made sure that Bangladesh didn’t get away Two crippling blows from Bumrah in the form of Mahmudullah and Hossain forced Bangladesh to play to save their innings from ending abruptly A barrageof short-pitched deliveries bouncers and toe-crushing yorkers in the slog overs helped India keeptailenders Taskin Ahmed and Mashrafe Mortaza — who is a handy lower-order batsman — from going berserk Occasional edges did go to the fence due to some sloppy field work but the besieged Bangladeshi players largelyfailed to connect bat to ball Bumrah’s two wickets and Kumar’s disciplined bowling ensured Bangladesh could only score 57 runs in the slog overs Flawless batting Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma continued their sublime touch with the bat as the duo raced to 63 for no loss in 10 overs Dhawan was the dominant partner in the partnership standing on his crease and delivering the punch at will Rohit as usual began slow but gained momentum as the partnership matured Except for a moment in Taskin’s first over when an edge off Rohit’s bat just fell short of the slip fielder it was largely risk-free batting at its best Rohit carried on after Dhawan perished on 46 while Kohli began upping the ante against the bowlers Mostly avoiding the aerial route the duo focussed on rotating the strike The boundaries came at regular intervals keeping the run-rate abovesix for most part of the innings and helping India cruise to an easy win The easy win will also bode

establish a BRICS Development Bank (BDB) and put in place a contingency reserve arrangement (CRA) is significant Related News The global financial architecture underpinned by the IMF and the World Bank has for several decades been in need of radical reform to remove its inherent deficiencies — for instance its democratic deficit exclusive reliance on the US dollar as an international reserve currency inability to regulate the international financial market and the severe resource crunch it faces in dealing with crisis situations As members of the G-20 the BRICS countries played an important part in pulling the world economy back from the precipice after the 2008 crisis They did this by maintaining the momentum of their own economic growth through the implementation of large rescue packages and by exerting pressure on the G-20 to mobilise additional resources a large part of which went to developing countries In the process the resources of the IMF were enhanced from $250 billion to $750 billion and for the first time after the early 1970s a general allocation of supplementary drawing rights was made This brought closer to reality the long-cherished ambition of vastly enhancing the IMF’s resources to enable it to play its mandated role in the international monetary system and to create an international reserve currency as an alternative to the dollar The crisis also triggered intensive discussion on reform Progress was made in reaching an agreement in 2009 on restructuring IMF quotas by bringing about a shift of 5 per cent from over-represented to under-represented member countries thus raising the latter’s total quota to 48 per cent This agreement which is subject to ratification has been languishing in the US Congress for the last five years As a result the next review of quotas scheduled for January 2013 in order to further democratise the decision-making process inside the IMF has been indefinitely postponed Other reform proposals were never seriously pursued In this context the initiative of the BRICS countries to establish a BRICS Development Bank (BDB) and put in place a contingency reserve arrangement (CRA) is significant At their last summit in Durban they agreed in principle to establish this institution Now an agreement has been reached on the objectives functions size of capital subscription distribution among member countries governance structure and operational mechanisms It is hoped that the few differences that remained would have been resolved and this initiative will be formally launched at the summit in Brazil There seems to be agreement that the BDB will have a total capital subscription of $50 billion shared equally by the five member countries Of this the paid-up capital would be $10 billion The initial capital of the CRA will be $100 billion to be paid on call and not in advance China’s share will be $41 billion that of Brazil India and Russia $18 billion each and South Africa’s $5 billion The BDB will finance infrastructure and sustainable development projects of the BRICS and other emerging countries The CRA will meet their short-term liquidity needs and forestall short-term liquidity pressure strengthen financial stability and stabilise domestic currency The fact that beneficiary countries will have access to an additional source of funding to tide over financial crises will increase investor confidence in their economies The BRICS countries have practical reasons to take this initiative A study has estimated a gap of $1 trillion in financing infrastructure and sustainable development projects in emerging economies The BDB is intended to bridge a part of this gap Making the bank accessible to other emerging countries will strengthen solidarity which is important to enhance the bargaining power of the BRICS in negotiations in global economic forums The improved infrastructure in other developing countries will have a positive impact on attempts to forge stronger trade and economic ties Capital subscriptions will help the BRICS diversify their options for reserve holdings The BRICS have enhanced their foreign exchange reserves since 2008 and the availability of an alternative parking place in the form of short- and long-term loans to other developing countries should be regarded as a measure of fiscal prudence The BRICS know that they alone cannot change global monetary and financial systems However the BDB can help promote a more democratic and fair system of global financial governance It cannot — nor is it intended to — replace the World Bank and the IMF But its potential impact on the global financial architecture cannot be ignored It will complement though on a modest scale the World Bank IMF and the regional development banks and regional contingency payment arrangements In the process it will contribute to the strengthening of the global financial architecture It will also help the BRICS and other developing countries to strengthen their voice in the financial and monetary system How successful they are in achieving these wider objectives will depend upon the scale and speed of the operation of the BDB and CRA The

little had been written about the post-1947 Indian constitution-making process Related News Madhav Khosla When Granville Austin came to India in the early 1960s to write a history of its constitutional founding research was hard Jawaharlal Nehru helped him gain access to materials Rajendra Prasad and KM Munshi shared their private papers the law ministry worked to uncover documents and in 1966 Austin delivered on his promise What he produced — The Indian Constitution: Cornerstone of a Nation — was and remains the most meticulous and carefully constructed account of the constitution-making process between 1946 and 1949 Three decades later Austin an “independent scholar” in Washington returned with another book Working a Democratic Constitution: A History of the Indian Experience The second began where the first had ended offering a remarkable narrative history of Indian constitutional development Both works made the man who was awarded a Padma Shri in 2011 and died earlier this week at the age of 87 the pre-eminent chronicler of India’s constitutional journey When Austin began his first book little had been written about the post-1947 Indian constitution-making process Constitutional histories typically stopped with the coming of independence and unsurprisingly Cornerstone became an instant classic From reviews in the world’s leading magazines and law journals to citations by the Supreme Court the book became the definitive reference point on India’s constitutional founding for scholars and lawyers alike Steeped in archival material it covered key decisions made by the Constituent Assembly from the relationship between the Centre and states to emergency powers to the nation’s official language Through unpacking the various negotiating positions and their resolution Austin demonstrated that the debates were an intellectual resource that had received far less attention than they deserved This is still a controversial argument for many continue to suggest that the Constitution was a replica of the Government of India Act 1935 While Austin challenged this view his book couldn’t quite immortalise the Indian founding as a constitutional moment In some ways Cornerstone was a victim of its own detail missing conceptual linkages with the broader currents of Indian intellectual history and the wider traditions of global constitutionalism In Austin’s second project he moved from history to practice Working a Democratic Constitution placed the Constitution at the heart of India’s democratic story There have only been a select few books such as Ramachandra Guha’s India After Gandhi that have managed to successfully find a way to tell the history of independent India Austin must belong in that small category of victors The focal point he offered was not political actors or economic transitions but instead constitutional development and his book remains the only one to have embraced this methodological vision Interviews newspaper articles private papers parliamentary debates and judicial cases were deployed to cover themes such as land redistribution and the right to property the clash for supremacy between the judiciary and Parliament the Emergency and its associated constitutional carnage federalism and the politics of presidential rule and so forth The story Austin wove was rich in characters and controversies Judges and their judgments politicians and their machinations and the Constitution and its amendments all made for a fascinating account of the unravelling of India This contribution was a marked change from hitherto existing entirely legal accounts of constitutional progress Such accounts had technical brilliance but were aimed largely at practitioners and offered few resources through which one could comprehend what the Constitution meant within the larger framework of democratic politics Yet in his aspiration to integrate law and politics Austin moved too far from one extreme to the other Working a Democratic Constitution was strikingly inattentive to the inner life of law forgetting that legal controversies were not always struggles over power or manifestations of political tension They were often consequences of genuine disagreement over the nature and purpose of law and legal doctrine had its own normative integrity Austin did not offer the most penetrating analyses of constitutional law or the most incisive accounts of judicial politics — honours likely to belong to figures such as HM Seervai PK Tripathi Upendra Baxi and Rajeev Dhavan But he did present a story of Indian constitutionalism of its birth and its life in the way that no other scholar managed to Some of the work he left undone in his own projects — on the conceptual underpinnings and theoretical significance of India’s constitutional founding and on the complex elusive way in which law and politics interact and yet remain independent domains — is now being done Indian scholars are reimagining the field of constitutional law with noticeable inventiveness and law and the social sciences are being integrated with fresh energy But much of this exciting new work has only been made possible by the foundation which Austin laid His painstaking documentation has meant that so much of the hard work has already been done With the basic tale of Indian constitutionalism in place we have the luxury of refining its chapters Khosla a lawyer and political theorist at Harvard University is author of ‘The Indian Constitution’ [email protected] For all the

that the last day of February will fall on a Monday when the budget will be presented The commentators can pause take several deep breaths today and resume their breathless commentary when the dawn breaks tomorrow The third budget of any government is a crucial milestone If the economy is on a roll it is a time for consolidation; if the economy is stuck it is the last opportunity to get it unstuck The state of the economy is there for all to see > Growth is flat — some will say it is overstated — at 74 to 76 per cent > There is acute distress in rural India > There is no visible evidence of job creation > Two of the four engines of growth — private investment and exports — are sputtering > Several projects are stranded or remain stalled > The inflation indices are confusing: While WPI remains negative CPI has inched upwards to 57 per cent in January 2016 leaving both the producers and the consumers unhappy No two years will be alike and there are no text book solutions to the problems faced by the economy A government must draw upon its imagination and reserves of courage to deal with the economic situation Over-Promise under-perform Mr Narendra Modi’s government was voted to office on the promise of rapid and sustained development If the government had delivered on its promises everyone should be a little happier today than what he or she was in May 2014 I am afraid I have not come across anyone who is actually happier On the contrary everyone in different degrees is sulking or sullen That includes the silent but observant members (especially the seniors) of the ruling establishment who have correctly sensed that there is no wind behind the sails of the government The reason is that the government had over-promised but has under-performed The party (BJP) and its supporters (RSS and its affiliates) did not help the government: they changed the narrative from development to intolerance and from cooperation to confrontation So instead of the rise of the economy we have seen the rise of intolerance Instead of all sections of the people warming to the government we find that important sections like farmers Dalits tribals Muslims and students have become apprehensive and insecure What should we expect from from the budget for 2016-17 I expect that the Finance Minister will comfortably achieve the fiscal deficit target of 39 per cent in the current year He got a bonanza from low oil prices of approximately Rs 140000 crore that he will use to fill three yawning gaps — shortfall in tax revenues shortfall in non-tax revenues (especially disinvestment) and the increase in the fiscal deficit The question is will he stick to his own fiscal consolidation path and set a target of 35 per cent for 2016-17 If he does we can raise one cheer; if he doesn’t the negative marking will begin Distress in rural India Secondly at the top of my ‘to-do’ list is the acute distress in rural India There has been a drought or drought-like condition for three years but the government looked the other way and cut nearly Rs 75000 crore funds to critical programmes that would have put money into the rural economy Besides the government was lukewarm to MGNREGA and did not give reasonable increases in minimum support prices Rural wages have remained practically stagnant All these explain the poor demand in the rural economy and the grave unrest among farmers farm workers and Dalits We will watch how the budget addresses these issues Thirdly we should look to how the government has balanced its books Has the government set unrealistic revenue targets or underestimated expenditure Fourthly we should look out for the revised estimates (2015-16) and the budget estimates (2016-17) against key heads of expenditure particularly the social sector programmes Will the government meet its expenditure targets in 2015-16 and provide adequate funds for 2016-17 Fifthly we will test the budget on how it addresses the problems of sluggish private investment and sputtering exports A car cannot run on two wheels So far the government has remained clueless on the solutions to the twin issues Beyond the numbers Sixthly what will be the legislative agenda in 2016-17 Is the government determined to pass the Goods and Services Tax Bills and will it accommodate the legitimate views of the Opposition parties Will the government repeal the retrospective clause in taxation of capital gains Will the government bring back to the table the Direct Taxes Code and the recommendations of the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission Seventhly will the budget follow the pattern of the last two budgets and make meaningless announcements of Rs 50 crore or Rs 100 crore each on a clutch of sundry “initiatives” Eighthly will the government use its absolute majority in the Lok Sabha (not available to any government in the last 30 years) to implement bold structural reforms in the economy in the regulatory architecture and in the administrative machinery I believe that a party that has on its own a strength of 282 cannot waste the opportunity or duck the responsibility of making deep and broad structural reforms And
