  3. 3. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 3 “Despite its immense potential and promise, by many accounts, India continues to suffer from poverty. A third of its population still lives in extreme poverty-possibly the highest incidence outside sub- Saharan Africa-and many people still lack access to basic services and opportunities such as sanitation, healthcare and quality schooling. The infant mortality and malnutrition incidences are among the highest in the world while we have the second shortest life expectancy in Asia. To a lesser extent, its large informal economy and its lack of a universal social safety net show that India remains largely a poor country that is developing with large disparities within its society”.  The Global Competitiveness Report, 2014-15, World Economic Forum (WEF)
  4. 4. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 4 • Growth should enhance employment opportunities–surest way of being included • Growth should be spread across major sectors of the economy SOME IGNORED STRATEGIC FACTORS Agriculture Employment/ Growth • GDP growth originating in agriculture is twice as effective in reducing poverty as GDP growth originating outside (World Development Report, 2008).

  5. 5. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 5 “ Vikas Nahi Samman Chahiye” – No longer Acceptable ..Social equity has a dialectical effect on advancement of economic equity…  Poverty: One-third of the world’s poor live in India.  15-35% of agricultural land is farmed by tenants (Committee on Land Reforms, 2009)  Official Poor - 22 percent. Significant number of just above the official poverty line are “vulnerable" and shocks such as illness or a job loss can push them back into desperate circumstances.  Out of pocket expenditure on health is roughly 78 percent (among the highest in the world (Shiva Kumar et al. 2010). From 8% in 1947, private sector today accounts for 93% of all hospitals, 64% of beds and 80-85% of doctors. 39 million people dunked yearly below poverty line for medical reasons (Sinha, 2011).  India spends 1.2 % on health vis-à-vis 3.4% in other middle income countries (Gupta, 2002) and among lowest in the world . ECONOMIC WOES
  6. 6. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 6  Average age of the Indian population: (125 billion) -29 years in 2020.  Working age population - 58 (2001) to 64 percent (2021)  BPO: 6 percent of the country’s GDP employs merely 0.6 percent of India’s 482 million strong workforces (GCR, WEF, 2014-15).  Share of manufacturing in employment: Stagnating at 11 percent since 1990s.  India will need to find 44 million additional jobs between 2015 and 2020 (only 2.7 million extra jobs created between 2004-05 and 2009-10)  Share of informal sector in employment: 92% (National Commission on Enterprises in the Unorganized Sector).  Estimates for 2020: 700 million people of working age (24-59 years); 500 million workers (including migrants in lean agricultural seasons) will require vocational/skill training. EMPLOYMENT /WORKFORCE

  8. 8. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 8 • Largest share of workforce - greatest numbers • Lacklustre growth of agriculture since the early 1990s • Double digit food price inflation-a grim reminder • Less than 45% of land under assured irrigation. Poverty rates in irrigated districts one-third than in districts without irrigation (World Bank 2005). ????  Productivity Enhancement – declining relative price of food – secondary expansion for other sectors (direct and indirect)  Better educational preparedness – farm and for decrease in overcrowding of workforce Dynamic Agriculture – Strategic Factor
  9. 9. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 9  Historical Injustice in Development Induced Displacement  Highly Inequitable Growth Process  Time/Cost Overruns due to Protest Induced Delays  Development as a “Win-Win” situation for all  LAA, 1894: Perceived Low Compensation, Lack of Sustainable Livelihood Llternative, Lack of Transparency/ Consultations, Acquisition for any Public Purpose, Misuse of Urgency Provisions etc. Land Acquisition Stalled Projects - Typology
  10. 10.  SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT: Entry point for Consultation and more of a Conflict Settlement Mechanism – minimises land requirement & displacement, reduces information asymmetry induced land selling etc  Timelines – MAXIMUM 1. SIA and Expert Group (EG) – Maximum of 8 Months 2. Preliminary Notification - Within 1Year of EG Report - IMMEDIATELY 3. Final Declaration-Within One Year 4. Award-Within One Year-WITHIIN SIX MONTHS 5. Possession of Land (No displacement ) –Within 6 months of Award 6. Possession in Case of Displacement - Within 18 months of award  INSTITUTIONAL MECHANISMS: To aid implementation;  LARR Authority: Cases to be decided in 6 months WAY FORWARD – ALTERNATIVE MODELS -LA + BENEFIT SHARING 10 Major Apprehensions
  11. 11. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 11 Protects: Land owners and Livelihood Losers with much greater benefits Promotes: Consultation, transparency and consent to reduce conflicts Utilization of excess land available Innovations like land lease, sharing of developed land etc Prevents: Excess land acquisition More Displacement than Warranted Acquisition of land in Scheduled Areas Acquisition of multi-crop irrigated land (except as a last resort) Existing Legislative Framework
  12. 12. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 12 Information Revolution Role of media Civil society (3.3 million) Contradictory role of political parties (inconsistent and opportunistic).  Universal recognition of Development as a “Win-Win” situation for all/ Resettlement as a Development Opportunity SOCIAL BACKGROUND

  14. 14. 04/21/15 Dr. Reshmy Nair 14  Is land proposed to be pooled/acquired the minimum required  Have irrigated land been avoided to the best extent  What will be the ‘loss’ to the existing land-owners/other livelihood losers and how is this proposed to be covered by the Government?  How will people who are displaced (physical/livelihood) be relocated by the Government?  What are the skills of the population in the acquired area and the employment opportunities that would be available post acquisition/pooling of the land? What steps would be taken to successfully address the gap?  Does the land pooling incorporate equity criterion in deduction policy?  What are the innovative models of benefit sharing that can make the land-losers permanent stakeholders in the project?
