latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shamik Chakrabarty | Kolkata | Updated: January 2 2017 11:08 am PCB’s executive committee head Najam Sethi Top News The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has threatened legal action against its Indian counterpart for not adhering to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)signed between the two boards in 2014 that promised six series in nine years starting 2015 According to the PCB the BCCI has defaulted twice in the last two years in terms of giving Pakistan a home series So staring at a loss in excess of $150 million the PCB seeks monetary compensation through the legal route In an interview with The Indian Express PCB’s executive committee head Najam Sethi clears the standpoint of his board members Excerpts: Why are you considering legal action The board (following its meeting in Karachi) has advised us to seek legal option This is the only option (left) Where do you intend to raise the matter in which court We would seek the advice of our legal office about where the matter should be persuaded The BCCI has maintained that a bilateral series between India and Pakistan is not possible unless there’s a thaw in border tensions Government’s approval is required for this series… That’s not relevant There’s no mention of any such thing in the contract The contract is a commercial contract; it has nothing to do with the diplomatic relations between the two countries The two countries are not in a state of war How will you react if India stops playing against Pakistan even in ICC events following this legal threat India has to play Pakistan in an ICC event If India doesn’t play Pakistan then we would ask for compensation for our commercial share (from the matches) India-Pakistan matches provide huge commercial revenues (to the ICC coffers); and out of that kitty goes money to all the countries So we have a right to make a claim there as well Do you think dialogue between the two cricket boards is no longer an option Well every time we met the BCCI people we spoke about the resumption (of bilateral series) We didn’t get a satisfactory answer They invited us to Mumbai (for a proposed meeting between then BCCI president Shashank Manohar and the PCB delegates including Pakistan board chairman Shahryar Khan in October 2015) We went there and they didn’t meet us They didn’t even show the courtesy to explain why they didn’t meet us and what their position was That was despite the fact that in Dubai in the presence of Giles Clarke (former ECB president and current ICC finance and commercial affairs committee chairman) there was a commitment to at least give us an answer So basically it means no yes no no and that’s not acceptable When did the Dubai meeting take place It happened ahead of our Mumbai visit The meeting happened between then BCCI president us and Giles Clarke It was decided that if the bilateral series was not restored they would give us an answer That is why we went to Mumbai after that to pursue them There’s a chance that the PCB might suffer for its animosity towards the most powerful cricket board in the world Do you agree We have to pursue all our options Over the past few months did you have any interaction with BCCI president Anurag Thakur or any other Indian board office-bearer Absolutely I personally met Mr Thakur in Cape Town South Africa about three months ago (during the ICC Board meeting) He heard what I had to say but didn’t have a response Then I raised all these issues at the ICC meeting You know that time the women’s matches (Pakistan were due to host three ODIs in the UAE) were coming up between India and Pakistan And there was a suggestion there that they would consider how to allot the points if the matches were not played So I said that wasn’t acceptable to me The simple thing; there was no question of discussing this The record shows that if you don’t play the party that doesn’t play loses the match There was no question of points allocation All the points would come to us And eventually they had to take that decision The ICC awarded the matches to us and gave all the points to us So that position we will maintain now When you approached Thakur about the resumption of bilateral series did he have any specific answer No No specific answer Did you also put forward the proposal of having the series in any country that suited India Yes absolutely We said ‘if you don’t want to play in Dubai no problems Tell us where you want to play except that we will not play in India When you are not prepared to play in Pakistan we will not play in India’ The reason is that twice earlier (India hosted the last bilateral series between the two countries in 2012-13) Pakistan went to India despite the fact they (BCCI) were opposed to coming to Pakistan or play us in a third country So we were clear unless you play us first and give us a home series we are not going to India Will you ask for monetary compensation We have an agreement and the ICC is a party to that It has been agreed upon during (the structuring of) the ICC’s Big Three formula under certain terms and conditions So our position is that the ICC is not just a witness to it but also a guarantor of it We have budgeted these things in our future development plan We are hurt by this (BCCI’s snub) and will seek compensation What did you plan based on the revenue from the India-Pakistan series We planned our cricket and infrastructure development (assuming that) the India-Pakistan series will contribute a large chunk (of the revenue) We budgeted all that for the next five or six years Now twicethey (BCCI) haven’t done that (didn’t play series) That is why we waited for the second default and there have been two defaults and there’s no explanation How much do you intend to seek These issues are to be taken (by the legal office) We can’t be specific about this We are now seeking legal advice about how to proceed further Does your proposed action have a finality to it Look the lawyers will tell us what to do The board has told us to seek legal advice and how to proceed legally So now we will consult lawyers and then will proceed But the fact is that we are moving one step forward in terms of legal redressal At a personal level I want to reiterate I personally have very good relations with Thakur and Manohar For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News The 53-year-old actor is spending some quality time with family,being arrested on dubious grounds.namely

Over 100 villagers in Birbhum’s Bolpur on Monday launched an agitation over the state government’s plan to set up Biswa Bangla University within a 300-acre area claiming the land had originally been acquired from them by the then Left government to set up an industrial project Villagers damaged and demolished a portion of an under-construction boundary wall in Shabirgunj area set bicycle tyres on fire and raised slogans against the ongoing project demanding their land back According to sources some protesters even used iron rods and sticks to scare police officers who tried to enter the area However police later brought the situation under control Watch what else is making news Villagers said they would only allow an industrial project to come up on the land in question as they had given up their plots to the Left government in the hopes of securing employment for future generations Sources said the university will most likely be built using 20 acres out of the 300 acres of acquired land “The government is planning to set up a new university of international standards called Biswa Bangla The farmers are demanding their land back as they are losing hope of any industrial project coming up in the area” said a villager The villagers had orchestrated a similar movement in 2008 against the CPM sources said adding the Trinamool Congress had supported the movement The TMC had also assured villagers that the land would only be used for industrial purposes if they were voted to power “Some villagers had demolished a small portion of the wall and had set a few tyres on fire The situation is completely peaceful No one has been arrested” Additional SP Subimal Pal told The Indian Express Trinamool leader Anubrata Mondal blamed outsiders for the agitation saying: “Some Naxals

App More Top NewsWritten by Shubhangi Khapre | Mumbai | Published: July 2 2017 3:22 am Raghunath Mashelkar Related News Adopting scientific agriculture models by equipping farmers with modern technology can play a significant role in bringing down the rising expenditure in the agriculture sector said former director of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CISR) Raghunath Mashelkar Mashelkar said “The shrinking land holding coupled with erratic climatic changes are going to bring bigger challenges for the farmers by 2030 Every farmer will have to revert to scientific farming and double the production and minimise investment expenditure” However he admits greater adoption of technology would bring down the use of human resources per hectare of agriculture land Citing an example of use of drones for spraying fertilizer in the fields he said “Now what can be done in 30 minutes would require deployment of a dozen farm workers who would labour for more than 8 to 12 hours” Individual farmers may not afford the drone but if they pool using community farming system the cost would be divided and become affordable he said Exuding optimism for innovative start-ups in the field of agriculture he said “Agriculture innovation system’s biggest challenge will be to strive for more for less” Explaining the concept he said “The system will have to gear up the farmers to work towards higher productivity using lesser resources namely land water energy and money This should result in higher output to benefit more people and not be measured in terms of profit alone” He substantiated his theory of “more for less” with statistics on how demand for foodgrains across the country would increase from 192 million tonnes (2000) to 342 million tonnes (2030) Whether it is in context of Maharashtra or across India the land holding size has been drastically shrinking which makes farmers more vulnerable to rising expenditure because of age-old traditional agricultural practices he said Indicating an average size of the land holdings decreased from 230 hectares (1970) to 132 hectares (2000) 068 hectares (2020) and expected to further decline to 032 hectares (2030) With less land available for farming caused due to multiple reasons— soil erosion soil salinity—scientific solutions will have to be provided to empower the small and marginal farmers While advocating for food processing infrastructure at the source of the farm produce Mashalkar stressed a technology driven supply chain through use of RIFD hi-tech GIS/GPS along with traceability system The growing use of GIS/GPS and sensor for planting irrigation and monitoring yields he believes would help in both improving the quality and quantity Recommending technology for crop insurance

NewsWritten by Ila Patnaik | Published: October 3 2011 12:09 am Related News The recent sharp movement of rupee-dollar exchange rate is part of the turmoil in world marketswhich are currently witnessing large currency flows In coming monthsworld economic conditions may lead to a further increase in cross-border flowsand currency markets may see even sharper movements Now that India is open in many aspectscurrency volatility will have an impact on many dimensions of economic activity The Reserve Bank of India will come under pressure to intervene in currency markets by those who stand to lose Most recentlywe have seen pressure on the RBI to prevent rupee depreciation There are two big losers on account of depreciation Firstimporters would now have to pay more for the same dollar value of imports To some extentit is possible for importers to hedge their currency risk Howeversince hedging is costlyit is often incompleteand sharp depreciations lead to a sudden increase in costs of importing Secondfirms holding dollar debt will have to shell out more rupees both for interest payments and the principal Cheap dollar loans and relative currency stability often make dollar loans appear attractiveand despite the currency mismatch on their balance sheetfirms often take the risk of borrowing abroad In recent daysdespite the turmoil in global currency marketsIndia has witnessed a large increase in External Commercial Borrowings (ECBs) This could potentially lead to difficulties for these firms lateras such borrowing is often fully or partially unhedged on the currency side In addition to straight-forward ECBswhich are foreign currency loanswhere companies are betting on currency movementsIndian firms have also been betting on the movement of the stock market This is done through selling Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs) An FCCB is a mixed instrument Like a bondthere are regular coupon and principal paymentsbut in additionthe holder of the FCCB has the option to convert the bond into equity at maturity If the equity price is higher than the contracted conversion pricethis is attractive for the bond holder If the stock price is lowerthe bondholder asks for the pre-agreed conversion price FCCBs were a preferred instrument for raising money when the currency was appreciating and the stock market risingespecially during 2002-07 Howeverwith the stock markets downand bond holders demanding the pre-agreed upon conversion pricemany companies are worried In additionsince the principal has to be returned in dollarsthe depreciation of the rupee adds to the woes of the bond issuers Consequentlythe pressure on the RBI to prevent depreciation is even greater as stock markets have declined and bankruptcy of a large number of firms can be devastating for Indian industry An equally important argument in favour of preventing depreciation is the role of currency in inflation A large part of Indias GDP is now tradablethat which can be tradedeven if it is not Industrial inputsoilcapital goods and raw materials are tradables Given the openness of the economyproducers can choose to buy these goods in world marketsor in the domestic economy Competition ensures that the prices of these goods are determined by world prices and the exchange rate An exchange-rate depreciation makes tradable prices more expensive In the current high inflationary environment when the RBI is trying to fight inflationone way to do so would be to prevent depreciation Hencethere is another argument to intervene On the other side of the coin are the exporterswho gain from a currency depreciation For many years when there was pressure on the currency to appreciatethere was pressure on the RBI to prevent appreciation This the RBI diduntil the resulting liquidity gave India a difficult and persistent inflation problem When the pressure on currency appreciation went away with the onset of the global financial crisisthe clamour for the RBI intervention in currency markets subsided In a period when world trade witnessed large shockswhen Indian exporters would normally have been asking for help from the RBIa weak rupee must have been a relief Other than selling dollars in early 2009when there was a severe shortage of dollarsliquidity and trade creditthe RBI was able to largely stay away from currency markets Currently the Indian economy is expected to slow downespecially on the investment frontand any help from a weak rupee that is seen as helping exports is a blessing for GDP growth So what should the RBI do Assuming that it can intervene effectively in currency markets and prevent depreciationshould it do so This strategy may be effective in the short run in preventing firms which have borrowed and importers who have contracts to importbut in the long run it will encourage firms to take on unhedged currency risk as they will expect the RBI to step in when the rupee weakens The problems of the world economy are not over and can be expected to last a few years The world is likely to see turmoil both in currency markets and in economies Providing incentives for firms to undertake higher currency exposureespecially in such timesshould be discouraged and not encouraged Can the RBI intervene effectively to prevent depreciation One difficulty is the size of the rupees foreign exchange market today Estimates suggest that the spot and currency derivative markets trade between $40 billion and $75 billion a day For effective intervention that would impact pricesthe RBI would need to intervene to the extent of at least a 10 per cent of the size of trading in the marketor an average of $5 billion a day Reserves of $250 billion can last for two months Unfortunately such strategies are usually unsuccessful as markets expect the central bank to give up intervention before reserves go to zero This leads to capital flight and a sharperquicker depreciation than would have happened without the intervention The RBI appears to have stayed away from any large-scale intervention in currency markets in recent days It would be wise to continue this strategy despite the clamour for intervention it may witness The
