Reasons for implementing LPG  Excess of consumption and expenditure over revenue resulting in heavy govt. borrowings.  Growing inefficiency on the use of resources.  Over protection to industries.  Mismanagement of the firm and the economy.  Increase in losses for public sector enterprises.  Various distortion like poor technological development, shortage of foreign exchange and borrowing from abroad.  Low foreign exchange reserves.  Inflation 4
  5. 5. Liberalization Liberalization is a very broad term that usually refers to fewer government regulations and restrictions in the economy. Liberalization refers to the relaxation of the previous government restriction usually in area of social and economic policies. When government liberalized trade , it means it has removed the tariff ,subsidies and other restriction on the flow of goods and services between the countries. 5

  9. 9. Privatization Privatization means transfer of ownership and/or management of an enterprise from the public sector to the private sector .It also means the withdrawal of the state from an industry or sector partially or fully. Privatization is opening up of an industry that has been reserved for public sector to the private sector. Privatization means replacing government monopolies with the competitive pressures of the marketplace to encourage efficiency, quality and innovation in the delivery of goods and services. 9
  10. 10. Need for Privatisation. Though the PSUs have contributed heavily to develop the industrial base of the country, they continue, even today, to suffer from a number of shortcomings which are identified below very briefly :- • A sizable number of PSUs have been incurring and reporting losses on a continual basis. Consequently, a large number of PSUs have already been referred of loss giving units; • Multiplicity of authorities to whom the PSUs are accountable; • Delay in implementation of projects leading to cost escalation and other consequences; 10
  11. 11. • Ineffective and widespread inefficiency on management; • With a view to provide opportunities for more and more unemployed youths, more number of people, than required, were recruited and therefore, many PSUs are over-staffed resulting in lower labour productivity, bad industrial relations, etc.; • A number of sick companies (40 companies) which were in the private sector was taken over by public sector mainly to protect the employees. These sick units are causing a big drain on the resources of the state; etc. 11
  12. 12. Different Ways in privatization • Liberalization Approach • Relative Share Enlargement Approach • Association of Private Sector Management Approach • Transfer of Minority Equity Ownership Approach • Transfer of Complete Ownership Approach 12
  13. 13. Advantages of Privatization • Privatization helps to reduce the burden on Govt. • It will help profit making public sector unit to modernize and diversify their business. • It will help in making public sector unit more competitive. • It will help to improving the quality of decision making, because the decisions are free from any political interference. • Privatization may help in reviving sick units which are the liability of the public sector. • Industrial growth. • Increase the foreign investment. • Increase in efficiency. 13

  16. 16. Globalization Globalization implies integration of the economy of the country with the rest of the world economy and opening up of the economy for foreign direct investment by liberalizing the rules and regulations and by creating favorable socio-economic and political climate for global business. 16
  17. 17. According to IMF: -”The growing economic interdependence of countries worldwide through increasing volume and variety of cross border transaction in goods and services and of international capital cash flows, and through the more rapid and widespread diffusion of technology.” 17
  18. 18. Features of Globalization • Opening and planning to expand business throughout the world. • Erasing the difference between domestic market and foreign market. • Buying and selling goods and services from/to any countries in the world. • Locating the production and other physical facilities on a consideration of the global business dynamics ,irrespective of national consideration. 18
  19. 19. • Basing product development and production planning on the global market consideration. • Global sourcing of factor of production i.e. raw-material, components , machinery,technology,finance etc. are obtained from the best source anywhere in the world. • Global orientation of organizational structure .and management culture 19

  21. 21. Pros and Cons of Globalisation Globalization have several benefits ,these are: -  Free flow of capital and increase in the total capital employed.  Free flow of technology.  Increase in industrialization.  Spread of production facilities throughout the globe.  Balanced development of world economies.  Increase in production and consumption.  Commodities at lower price with high quality.  Increase in jobs and income.  Higher Standard of living.  Balanced human development 21
  22. 22. Negative effects of Globalization • Loss of domestic industries • Exploits Human resource • Decline in income • Unemployment • Transfer of natural resources • Lead to commercial and political colonism • Widening gap between rich and poor • Dominance of foreign institutions 22
  23. 23. CONCLUSION Economic liberalization has increased the responsibility and role of the private sector. At the same time, it has reduced the control of the government on economy affairs. It is expected that the reforms would liberalize the Indian economy enough to create a conducive environment for rapid economic development. • 23
  24. 24. • The process of reforms according to many economists and social scientists is not fast enough to achieve the goals. Jeffrey Sachs, director of Harvard University’s center for international development and a noted economist, pointed out that the reform process in India had a long way to go. He feels that without a focus on the “twin pillars” of social and economic strategies, the future would be bleak for India, especially in the context of competition all around. 24
  25. 25. • The government, however, is reluctant to give up its role of owning and controlling economic activities. At the same time its inability to spend for providing minimum health and education services. It is eager to spend on higher education without spending enough on primary and secondary education. It has failed in providing a corruption free administration, an essential precondition for increasing competitiveness. Success of the economic reforms depends upon the commitment of all concerned – people, political parties, bureaucracy, and government – to the socio economic progress of the country. 25
