Article:Vulnerability of Indian Rupee

Vulnerability of Indian Rupee: A Perspective  By Prof. Sachin Napate The Author is a faculty of the Indira Group Of Institutes, Indira School of Business Studies, Pune   The journey of INR against the USD can be traced back to the pre- Independence days when INR was at par with USD. After Independence, India chose a fixed rate currency regime with the currency pegged against GBP. However, with the passage of time and change in circumstances the pegs were modified. In 66 years of Independence INR has depreciated 66 times against the USD (till end-August 2013). In the past five years, the rupee has depreciated by a huge 60%. The vulnerability is especially evident with the onset of the new century. In 2003-2007, INR appreciated about 20% from 50/USD to 40. The caveat was that USD depreciated about 40% against the Euro, 35% against the Swiss franc and 25% against GBP. So against a basket of top three currencies, INR did not appreciate at all or rather depreciated. When the financial crisis hit the global economy INR depreciated 25% in 2008 alone to touch 50/USD. Again after a three-year consolidation, INR shot up to 68/USD (30% depreciation) in May-August 2013 as the talks of Fed taper gained ground. This vulnerability owes it to various factors, some primary reasons being: *Lack of Infrastructure: The lack of infrastructure (port turnaround time, truck speed, labour costs) the country faces adds to the supply side inflation (rise in electricity cost is higher than WPI, labour costs are more linked to CPI than WPI, a reason for labor strikes) that reduces the competitiveness of the export sector and hence a constant depreciation in the currency is required to offset that productivity loss. For example, INR has depreciated against the Chinese Yuan by almost 70% since the start of the century and hence an advantage for exporters, but when we deflate the number by the inflation differential between the two nations {compounded inflation differential of around 67%--4% annual inflation differential) the advantage fades away even after accounting for the recent depreciation. Further, the comparison of the two nations in terms of policies and infrastructure reveals why India s trade deficit as a % of GDP rose from around 2% in 1990s to 10% in 2013, leading to a widening CAD (4.80% of GDP in FY13) and external sector crisis. *Dollarization of Economy: The external sector i.e. import & export, was at 15% of GDP in 1990s when the economy was rather closed. With the opening up of economy and globalization, the external sector has expanded to around 40% of GDP in FY13. This shows that there has been a rapid increase in the import content of the average consumption basket in the last 20 years. The rise in economic growth led to a greater rise in imports than in exports as the investments in the economy could not match the rising consumption rate, leading to a trade deficit reaching 10% of GDP in FY13. Further, the increase of the import content even in the export-oriented industries reduces the effectiveness of currency depreciation as a tool in correcting the external imbalance without an improvement in productivity. *Oil: Oil is a politically sensitive commodity in India given the implication it has on inflation and the daily budgets of households. Hence the depreciation in currency strains the government fiscal balance since the burden is not passed onto end-consumers. Any rise in fiscal deficit without an increase in the productive capacity of the economy indirectly fuels inflation and reduces the effectiveness of monetary policy in maintaining the growthinflation balance, primarily by the use of interest rates. *Gold: As much as it is a tradition to buy gold in India, the investment in gold is a savvy economic decision by the Indian households as it is the only asset that strengthens the household balance-sheet in case of a depreciating currency and an inflationary environment. This, however, puts pressure on the financial savings in the economy and hold up investments (savings-investment-current account theory) as Investment is the sum of domestic savings and external savings (current account balance). The lack of investment to fund the infrastructure aggravates this inflation/inefficiency, leading to currency depreciation. Thus, the vicious cycle continues. *Twin Deficits: The deficits should be run only if they can pay for themselves in the future, else they reach unsustainable levels and stalls the development process and exert downward pressure on growth and upward pressure on inflation, creating a stagflationary scenario. The increase in fiscal deficit leads to higher government borrowings that crowds out the private sector, and hence investments in the economy, weakening growth and further fuelling deficit, and the vicious cycle continues. Self-delusion is the first step towards disasterwe need to shift the medium- to long-term focus away from funding the CAD to reducing the CAD on a permanent basis, else we will continue to have large currency depreciation at regular intervals that can deteriorate the overall well-being of every citizen in the economy. A stable currency regime required for a stable growth economy cannot be achieved unless the structural issues are addressed to improve productivity and keep a stable inflation environment, resulting in a more stable fiscal deficit and external sector which put India on a sustainable growth path with stable FD, CAD, inflation and growth.

  • Article: English for Engineers: A Sine Qua Non

    English for Engineers: A Sine Qua Non                                                                    In the era of globalization, engineering students need to enhance their English communication skills and other soft skills in order to cope with the increasingly tough competition in the job market. Multinational corporations (MNCs) and major information technology (IT) companies in India recruit engineering candidates who have good English communication skills. In this highly competitive world, proficiency in English is considered one of the employability skills. In other words, English communication skills are considered life skills or survival skills in the twenty-first century. Varun Aggarwal, Director, Aspiring Minds Computer Adaptive Test (AMCAT) in one of the interviews given to Business Standard said, Recruiters and HR managers around the world report that candidates with English skills above the local average stand out from the crowd and garner 30-50 per cent higher salaries than similarly-qualified candidates without English skills. The trends in India are no different, with English fluency being one of the key qualities recruiters look for during the interview process. Engineering students need to be able to think critically, solve problems, communicate clearly, be creative and work in a team in order to get placed in a reputed company. Thus, good English communication skills have become a sine qua non for professionals to create a successful career.  Various engineering colleges have started hiring trainers who train their wards in soft skills including English communication skills and prepare them for on and off campus placement. The students should be encouraged to take international certifications in English like GESE (Graded Examinations in Spoken English) by Trinity College, London and BEC (Business English Certificate) Examination by Cambridge University in order to boost their confidence in English and make them more employable. The students should utilize such opportunities available to them on the campus which certainly helps them broaden their horizons and have a successful career.

  • Article: Uniqueness of Management Education

    Dr. Thirumagal J Pillai is a PGDM Faculty at Indira Institute of Management, Pune.

    This article articulates our understanding of Uniqueness/Innovativeness of Management Education. Purpose of education: Education is an organized system that facilitates learning. It stimulates the learners curiosity and helps him/her develop into a creative, critical and sensitive human being. Here each learner or student: learns the process of becoming what one can be and wants to be, and Understands ones role in society and contributes to its progress. Innovativeness of Management Education A Desired Learning: There was a phase when management education was synonymous with only a handful of sectors like marketing, finance and personnel (HR). Over the past few years, the scope has expanded considerably in a trend thats visible across sectors. First it was the engineering students who began to follow up their degree courses with an additional management degree. Then, specializations emerged in sectors like insurance, retail, apparel, IT... etc. Management education had become a prerequisite for a career in just about every field.
    Along the way, most of the misconceptions about management education also began to fade. Responding to the needs of different sectors, management curriculum began to evolve. The teaching methodology also became much more industry relevant. What really made a big difference was the involvement of industry in shaping the academia curriculum. From the topics that need to be included to emphasizing their significance with real life case studies and frequent lectures from industry stalwarts, suddenly management education became a lot more hands on.
    With industry-academia interaction on the rise, management education made the transition from theory-oriented to industry-relevant. The combination of industry professionals visiting management campuses, students going for industry visits, events being held where a platform is provided to industry professionals and academicians to come together and share their experiences, has truly transformed the process. The step is also emphasized on overall development of students instead of focusing only on academics. Special courses are also offered to the students to enable them to perform better during campus recruitment. So apart from management aspects, soft skills, language courses, even orientation visits abroad have been visible. Getting a global perspective also helps immensely as one can fit seamlessly into
    the work environment at a multinational corporation with the scope for postings in different countries across the world. To realize, today Management education has a vital role to play in today s business environment, where everything changes so fast that it makes it difficult for organizations to survive the growing competition. Businesses especially in developing countries are in need for management talent and new challenges require new business models. Overall, the MANAGEMENT education system here at INDIRA GROUP facilitates desired learning as mentioned above, but the final act of learning the building of knowledge and the evolution of the background processes rests with the learner or the student who wishes to pursue the same.
