Righting a wrong, RBI way

  • The recent Reserve Bank of India notification on vendor subvention loans, zero-cost credit card EMI (equated monthly instalment) loans, and so on will go a long way to create an environment for truth-in-lending regulations.
  • Truth-in-lending laws, found in many countries ensure that lenders make a truthful disclosure of their rates of interest, and do not try to attract borrowers with misleading rates of interest.
  • Truthful disclosure of rates of interest is as important as fair disclosures made by a vendor selling goods.
  • There was a time when there was no truth in lending in India at all.
  • A lender could get away with disclosure of what was called 'flat rate of interest', which was almost like half of the actual interest rates. Leading housing finance lenders would show what was called 'annually declining rate of interest', which was also deceptively lower than the actual interest rates.
  • It was in 2009 that the RBI required disclosure of the actual rates of interest in case of loan transactions.

Supplier subventions

  • Most comments from the financial press on the recent RBI notification focused on the credit card EMIs.
  • Credit card issuing banks quite often promise an interest-free EMI loan if a particular card is used for a particular purpose, say, travel booking.
  • There are no free lunches in life; neither is there any interest-free credit in the world of banking. It is just that the bankers are getting merchant commissions from the respective merchants offering the services — in this, the airline or the travel company from which the interest is being made up.
  • The arrangement is, when a bank or a non-banking financial company (NBFC) gives asset-based financing to a client, the supplier may provide a credit, or commission or both.
  • Thus, the lender charges a lower interest rate from the borrower, and makes up for the same by way of credit, or commission or both.

The importance of JUDICIARY

  • The Union Cabinet has decided on the composition of the proposed Judicial Appointments Commission an informed debate becomes possible. The commission will be presided over by the Chief Justice of India, and will include two Supreme Court judges.
  • The "non-judges" will be the Law Minister, two eminent persons and the Justice Secretary, who will be the Member-Secretary.
  • The Leader of the Opposition in either House will be part of a committee which nominates the eminent persons, the other members being the Prime Minister and the Chief Justice. Thus, all the organs of the State, as also the citizenry, will be represented. And the judges will be marginally outnumbered. This is as it should be.

Checks and balances

  • The president of the Supreme Court Bar Association is reported to have said that "loading the Commission with more members from the Executive and including fewer members from the judiciary would curtail the independence of the judiciary" and that "the cure should not be worse than the disease.
  • The Bar will not agree to transfer the power of appointment to the executive. The collegium system can be improved by making methods of selection more transparent"
  • The Constitution functions under a system of checks and balances.
  • Judges of the superior courts are given the power to strike down laws of Parliament and the State Legislatures, which in their view violate the provisions of the Constitution.
  • The judiciary has, in addition, given itself the power to annul amendments to the Constitution if they violate the "basic structure" ( Kesavananda Bharati , 1973), and the political class has acquiesced.

Fuel for thought

  • A decade ago, three Indian companies — Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) — independently announced substantial gas discoveries in the Krishna-Godavari Basin in the Bay of Bengal.
  • For a fuel-starved country, these discoveries were harbingers of hope and optimism.
  • While crude imports would continue, we believed we could finally turn our back on polluting coal and transit to natural gas-based electricity generation.
  • In fact, in Andhra Pradesh, four CCGT-based (combined cycle gas turbine) thermal generation plants came up in the wake of the announcement.
  • Abundant domestic gas supplies also meant enhanced food security, since gas is the main feedstock for manufacturing fertilizers.
  • India is surrounded by gas-rich neighbours — Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Yet, cross-border gas pipelines have eluded us till now.
  • While the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline is said to be at a reasonably advanced stage of negotiation, its prospects are dogged by so many problems that until that pipeline actually materialises and the gas starts flowing, it would be premature to count on it.
  • In the event, India's hope of meeting burgeoning gas demand is only through import of natural gas in the form of LNG (liquefied natural gas).
  • LNG is an excellent option for countries that cannot access piped gas.
  • Even Europe, which is extravagantly served by gas pipelines from Russia, has built several LNG terminals to supplement Russian supplies.
  • LNG requires substantial infrastructure, both at the dispatching and receiving ends.
  • LNG is natural gas cooled at source to minus 161 degrees Celsius converting it into liquid form and shipped in cryogenic ships.
  • The importing country needs cryogenic storage facilities as well as re-gasification terminals where LNG can be converted once again into gaseous form and sent through the domestic pipeline network.
  • Setting up LNG terminals is a capital-intensive operation.
  • India already has two operational LNG terminals on the Gujarat coast, and a third one in Kochi.
  • More LNG capacities are being planned along our long coastline. With domestic gas production plummeting to record lows, some of these will get built in the next few years.
  • LNG export prices to European destinations have been driven down by the shale glut in the U.S. However, Asian LNG prices tend to be aligned to the prices Japan is willing to pay for its LNG imports.
  • Japan's electricity generation is almost entirely LNG-based, and its desperation to keep the lights on has led to substantially higher prices for LNG in the Asia Pacific region.
  • secrecy shrouds the price at which LNG is contracted by importing countries, including India. the future of LNG in India will critically depend upon a far-sighted proactive approach that ensures transparency, fairness and certainty for all stakeholders, most of all, for the beleaguered Indian gas consumer.

Rich world 'fails' U.N. scheme on Amazon park

  • In a major example of how the rich world countries are refusing to put their money where their mouth is on climate change, a major U.N.-backed initiative that would have kept fossil fuels underground in the pristine forests of Ecuador has collapsed.
  • three countries sharing the Amazon region — Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador — were discussing plans to improve monitoring of the world's biggest rainforest, Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa announced that his country was giving up a conservation scheme that would have paid the country not to drill for oil in the Amazon's previously untouched parts of Yasuni National Park — the most diverse natural zone in the world.
  • The far-reaching decision that would lead to the demise of the planet's most creative and ambitious approach to biodiversity conservation, social development and climate change immediately sparked a fiery debate on the future of the world's biggest eco-system,
  • With only $13 million so far in actual donations, he said he had been forced to abandon the fund as "the world has failed us".
  • Mr. Correa, who had launched the scheme in 2010 with the aim of raising $3.6 billion, almost 50 per cent of the value of the reserves in the park's Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) oil field, over 13 years.
  • At that time, the ITT Initiative, as the project is known, was welcomed as an alternative to the efforts of the United Nations to deal with climate change and biodiversity loss as it promised to the keep carbon in the ground in a 2,00,000- hectare corner of the park and, in the process, help to redistribute wealth from rich nations to the developing world and wildlife.
