  • 1. PRIME MINISTER MANMOHAN SINGH’S TOP 10 POLICES FOR THE COUNTRY Before I talk about the 10 top economic development policy of Manmohan Singh‘s I would like to briefly capture some of the highlights of the various activities that has been achieved in the various sectors by the Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh. India is today widely seen as poised to embark on sustained high growth path of the type achieved by a handful of countries in the past. The PM is confident that we will be able to deliver on the promises so that India moves rapidly in to the ranks of middle income countries, free from the burden of poverty, ignorance and disease that has held us down for so long. In charting this transition our development strategy will be firmly focused on making our growth process socially inclusive and regionally balanced. The government’s end objective it to reduce inequities and inequalities that exists in our country. As a country we have moved ahead on several fronts to achieve these goals. Efforts have been made to increase the support prices for farmers and investment in rural infrastructure, including roads; housing, electricity and sanitation have been made. Sincere efforts have been made to build a rights based framework in several critical areas. As a new initiative we have moved further in this direction by introducing the right to education and very soon we propose to introduce a legislation giving our citizens the right to food. One of the other thrust areas has been the expansion and strengthening of the education system at all levels i.e. elementary, secondary and high secondary. There has been a significantrise in number of school children at the elementary level. More than 11 crore people have been provided mid-day meals. Significant improvement has been made to close the gap between boys and girls SC & ST children. Progress has been made also in the higher education by bringing in new legislative framework to introduce new bills in the parliament. More IIM’s have been introduced and 10 new National Institutes of Technologies started functioning from July 2010. The National Rural health Mission has helped to strengthen healthcare delivery systems in the country. There has been a substantial increase of in- patient and outpatient cases in public health system and there is encouraging evidence of increased institutional deliveries. All disease control programmes have also shown sustained improvement. Construction of six new AIIMS- like institutions is in full swing. Infrastructure and energy sectors has received due attention in many ways. In the power sector one saw the highest ever capacity addition in a single year in the last 6 decades. Domestic crude oil production also increased by 11%.Availibity of natural gas touched 169 mmscmd, recording a major growth from 105 mmscmd in 2008-09. With the commissioning of the 4th unit at the Kaiga station in January 2011, the country has now 20 operating nuclear reactors with a total capacity of 4780 MWe. Rapid progress has been made in the nuclear fuel security, with the identification of additional uranium resources in Andhra Pradesh and Meghalaya. Commitments have been made to maintain the highest levels of safety in the nuclear programme, and have initiated process of strengthening the Atomic Energy Regulatory
  • 2. Board and making it an autonomous independent regulatory authority. The year 2010-11 also saw the highest ever capacity addition from renewable energy sources in one year at 3157 MW. The infrastructure and transportation has really shown some positive signs. To begin with The National Highways is proceeding well and will accelerate further in the years ahead. A special project for road infrastructure in areas affected by left wing extremism has been sanctioned, involving construction of 4942 km of roads. To extend the benefits of NHDP deeper into the less developed areas, all single lane National highways will be converted to two lane standards. A new integrated terminal in public private partnership mode became operational at the Indira Gandhi International airport at New Delhi, creating new bench marks for airport infrastructure being developed in the country. A similar airport is under construction in Mumbai. The modernization and development of Chennai and Kolkata airports are also in progress. The railways have demonstrated good growth in freight and passenger traffic. They have exceeded the past levels of achievements in new lines doubling of existing lines and gauge conversion. In the telecom sector country wide number portability was launched in January 2011. The unique identification project AADHAAR was launched in 2010. By April 2011 more than 50 lakh AADHAAR numbers have already been generated. The AADHAAR project is expected to go a long way in helping targeted delivery of benefits to our people. It will also enable improvements in delivery in services across sectors and greater financial inclusion. It will help our objective of removing irregularities in the society. The government firmly believes in giving full commitment to the welfare of the underprivileged. Here we have taken several initiatives to give focused attention to the issues concerning SC and ST Brothers and sisters, the minorities’ women and children. In general we improved upon the quality and reach of the special programs we are implementing in these groups. Going forward we are going to further strengthen and restructure the ICDS scheme to adopt a multi-sectorial approach in addressing child malnutrition in selected high- burdened districts. Food inflation was a major concern in 2010-11 .The government has taken several steps and measures to address the problem, including a selective ban on exports and future trading in food grains, zero import duty on select food items , import of pulses and sugar by public sector undertakings, distribution system and release of higher quota of non-levy sugar. The fiscal stimulus is being rolled back. The Reserve Bank also took necessary steps to restrict excess liquidity. As a result inflation in pulses dipped in March 2011. However the long term solution to the problem lies in increasing productivity and production in a diverse range of agriculture commodities. Two major initiatives were taken for the reform of our tax system were the introduction of the Direct Tax Code bill and the Constitution 115th Amendment bill for implementation of the Goods and Services Tax in Parliament. We stayed on the path to fiscal consolidation during 2010-11. Your government has and will work tirelessly to build a modern and prosperous India, one in which all our citizens are guaranteed a life of peace, dignity and opportunity. We will work to give youth the training and the opportunity they need to succeed in a world where knowledge will be the great driver of economic prosperity. Our end objective is to remove inequities in our society, and for the uplift of
