and watching Michael come by out of Turn One,a tarpaulin costs in the market and how much the MoD paid for it, There are several restaurants in Chennai for example which have both AC and non-AC halls to cater to different sections of custom. Those sauntering into the AC rooms know full well that they are going to be fleeced both by the restaurant and by the tax authorities Restaurants have a premium rate for the same dish of the same quality served in the cooler precincts and the tax authorities jump into the fray by demanding their pound of flesh with a heightened GST Nothing wrong in this because the customer had after all the choice of avoiding the AC room and thus pay a softer tax of 12 percent Reuters But what is the fault of the customer who wants to eat in the comfort of his house AC or non-AC after buying the food from a restaurant The CBEC says he would have to pay an additional tax of 6 percent even if he takes away the food and not dine in the AC restaurant if any part of the restaurant’s establishment is air-conditioned Now restaurants that do a large bit of takeaway business including Saravana Bhavan McDonalds and KFC will have to look for new restaurant spaces to house their completely non-air-conditioned units Not only would their takeaway customers have to sweat it out while buying but also the hapless staff condemned to working in such units Of course building a Chinese wall between the AC and non-AC sections is an option but CBEC hounds have the knack of smelling fish in such arrangements—in the past they viewed adjacent units as one thus refusing to give tax relief that was due to a smaller unit housed inside the same complex If you want to try your luck with such Chinese walls between adjacent units better name them separately McDonalds may have to float a new venture McDonald non-AC or McDonald hoi polloi Saravana Bhawan may have to float a new entity called Makkal Saravana Bhavan (Makkal or common folks) for its non-AC restaurants wherefrom it can sell to its takeaway customers But you never know CBEC may still smell fish and call adjacent units existing cheek by jowl as one and the same and thus impose an 18 percent tax Locate AC and non-AC units at a decent distance from each other is going to be the new trend sooner than later Snobbish and comfort-loving buyers may consider it infradig to be rubbing shoulders with the lesser customers in the non-AC takeaway counters For them restaurants may have to take the trouble of having takeaway facilities in both AC and non-AC establishments If restaurants live in denial and do not take the above precautions that meet the litmus test of separate establishment set out by the CBEC then they risk losing lion’s share of their takeaway business By: Tech Desk | Published: January 27 2017 2:07 pm

Yubaraj Ghimire A powerful aftershock on May 12 — almost as powerful as the earthquake on April 25 — took an additional toll not only on human life and property but also on the collective confidence

of a US Marine chopper with six American and two Nepalese military personnel on board Incidentally parliament was in session to pay homage to those who lost their lives on April 25 and to announce the relief and reconstruction package when the floor and the convention hall shook forcing members to rub for safety The poor quality of governance political instability and the total absence of accountability are further eroding people’s confidence in the government even after it came out with a 27-point pledge for relief distribution and reconstruction The absence of central authority has never been so starkly visible President Ram Baran Yadav supreme commander of the Nepal army is apparently sulking complaining that neither the cabinet nor the army chief briefed him when the army was being deployed for the rescue and relief operation The Nepal army — much vilified by the Maoists and others as the “king’s private army” in the aftermath of the 2006 change — which is working in coordination with the Armed Police Force and the Nepal Police is the most admired institution in the country in the aftermath of the disaster At a time when the focus should have been on reaching succour to people the state apparatus is not only in disarray but a section is fearing a political fallout given the army’s current popularity The fear perhaps is more a reflection of their own shortcomings — especially on the part of the major political parties — that they failed to convince people about their ability to do what a natural disaster of this magnitude demands Signs of a backlash against politicians are not hard to read Social media is replete with hatred for MPs who collected a tent each for themselves although the tents were meant for those who lost their homes The “donors’ world” is not united in terms of the approach they will adopt on how to move forward despite generous offers of help from all quarters UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called a meeting

pressure on Prime Minister Sushil Koirala to quit and pave the way for a national government is rising But the bigger parties have so far failed to define what constitutes the common agenda for such a

in the domains in which the country needs to improve Related News The future of India’s 64-year-old Planning Commission is a hot topic The prime minister has declared it dead He says the country needs another institution with new capabilities and a new orientation to set the country in a new direction What should the shape of this institution be Its name He has invited suggestions from the people of India A small group within the last Planning Commission (which demitted office in June 2014) had looked around the world for insights that India could apply to a new institution to processes that other countries are using and have used to accelerate the growth of industry jobs and infrastructure These countries range from Japan in the 1960s and ’70s to Korea in the ’80s and China in the ’90s and early 2000s They also include the US today especially the state of California an entrepreneurial state that is the antithesis of the Soviet Union from which India adopted the architecture of its central planning systems Californians have felt an urgent need to improve public infrastructure such as education urban and transport infrastructure and the management of water resources A bipartisan “Think Long Commission” examined the planning practices of other countries including China to devise a structure to guide the development of California The new institution replacing the Planning Commission cannot carry on trying to coordinate the states and industry with a control mindset and with the (diminishing) authority to allocate money as its source of power It must play a catalytic role instead It must learn to deploy processes that spur a system of independent actors — states private enterprises civil society — to take a course that will benefit the nation A systematic analysis of what India needs today and international best practices suggests that four functions must be the core of the new institution to catalyse development and growth One scenario planning must supplement perhaps even substitute five-year resource allocation plans Scenario planning based on disciplines of systems thinking enables all forces including non-quantifiable social and political forces to be included in an analysis of the economy Scenarios are dynamic in the guidance they provide They are not predictive of precise outcomes but explain the actions stakeholders should take to produce the outcomes they desire Two platforms must be created to connect stakeholders so that they can learn from and coordinate with each other For example the states must meet each other in well-designed and well-conducted meetings in which the Centre plays the role of active facilitator rather than issuer of money and instructions Similarly platforms must be created for inter-city learning and for the exchange of ideas between states and regions on how industrial relations can be improved thereby enhancing the productivity of all enterprises in the region Three the best methods for systematically turning contention among stakeholders into collaboration and confusion into coordination must be injected into the system Such methods introduced through the Total Quality Movement were the accelerators of Japan’s rapid development Such methods for stakeholder collaboration are institutionalised in Germany and Sweden and explain the ability of these countries to steer through economic crises and maintain strong manufacturing industries even with high wages and strong currencies Malaysia’s Pemandu methodology and Germany’s Capacity Works methodology both for large-scale sectoral improvement with the systematic involvement of all stakeholders were brought into India recently by the India Backbone Implementation Network an innovative solution conceived by the Planning Commission It is interesting to note that even in China citizen participation in city planning has been introduced And China has disseminated disciplines of project planning across the country Four the new institution for reforming systems must be a node that induces faster learning and implementation in a large network of thinking and acting institutions It need not be — must not be — a large bunch of experts in the domains in which the country needs to improve The solutions need not come from the expertise within the nodal institution They will be more robust when they come from the intelligence of the entire system in which there will be many “experts” some with theoretical knowledge and some with practical knowledge The role of the new institution must be to stimulate the use of this knowledge to address the challenges of the country Its expertise must be in the design and facilitation of processes required for large “learning enterprises” These are the four core architectural requirements for an institution to accelerate the advance of the Indian flotilla of states private enterprises and citizens The new institution may perform other functions too However it must not drift from its core purpose which is to “guide” the progress of the country and to “catalyse” faster learning better coordination and faster implementation This is what an aspirational richly diverse and democratic India needs in a Planning Commission replacement States Central ministries and others should go to this institution not because it has the power to give them money (which it will not) or because it has the authority to withhold and grant permissions (which it should not have this being the prerogative of the executive) They should respect the institution because they value its foresight and the guidance it gives them for improving their own strategies and building capabilities The writer is a former member of the Planning Commission [email protected] For all the
