The fast growth of the Indian economy has placed increasing stress on physical infrastructure such as electricity, railways, roads, ports, airports, irrigation and sanitation etc. Hence, the policy makers have been giving wide attention to creation of adequate infrastructure in the country. It is being increasingly recognized that lack of good quality infrastructure is a bottleneck that must be removed in order to maintain the growth rate shown by the country in the first decade of 21st century. Building infrastructure is a capital intensive process with long gestation period therefore requires long term finance. The government finance to infrastructure is constrained by the FRBM regulations. Hence bank finance to infrastructure projects is going to be very vital in the present days. The IIFCL also provide long term finance for infrastructure projects. The government adopted a liberal foreign direct investment policy under which FDI up to 100 percent is permitted under the automatic route in most sectors. This paper examines the present requirement and status of investment in Indian infrastructure sector. Paper also analyzes recent trends of credit flows to the infrastructure sector and risk involved in bank finance.

Authors: Dr. Girijesh Sharma

The main reason why things move slowly in India is that we always make complex rules and then create further procedural complications leaving us at the mercy of the babus. Let there be harmonised GST all across the country with one clearly defined rule of revenue sharing between Centre and States. And this revenue sharing should also include in its ambit a share of the revenue for Excise & Custom duty which currently accrues in totality to the Centre. So ultimately the state that offers the best environment and facilities for industrial productivity and commerce in general, wins over the entrepreneur and accordingly gets a higher volume of the indirect tax revenue.

SMEs play a very important role in the economy of any country and these are having its importance in a developing country like India. Entrepreneurship is indispensible to accelerate the industrial growth. Small and Medium enterprises are an effective means for the development of entrepreneurship and this sector is a solution to the problems of poverty, insecurity, unemployment, over population of the modern world. The role of small and medium enterprises in the economic and social development of the country is well established. Developing entrepreneurial culture and ethical business environment are also important challenges SME s emerges leaders during the period of stagnation, restoring jobs and business activity lost during the time despite a slow and insubstantial economy. It contributes almost 40% of the gross industrial value added in the Indian economy. It has been estimated that a million Rs. of investment in fixed assets in the small scale sector produces 4.62 million worth of goods or services with an approximate value addition of ten percent. SMEs constitute 6% of GDP, 34% of national exports and account for the employment of more than 30 million people. The small-scale sector has grown rapidly over the years. The growth rates during the various plan periods have been very impressive. The number of small-scale units has increased from an estimated 0.87 million units in the year 1980-81 to over 3 million in the year. When the performance of this sector is viewed against the growth in the manufacturing and the industry sector as a whole, it in stills confidence in the firmness of the small-scale sector. The Indian economy is expected to grow by over 8 % per annum until 2020 and can become the second largest in the world, ahead of the United States by 2050 and the third largest after China and the United States by 2032.

This paper would study the role of SME s in Indian Economy and its contribution to the economic development of the country as a whole. We also highlight some of the important issues that SMEs face and conclude by suggesting suitable cluster interventions for enhancing competitiveness and sustainability of the SME sector. This paper proposes that an incentive based system for encouraging SMEs to adopt good governance practices is more likely to succeed

Title: Decoding The Differences Between Power Tariff Regulations And Accounting Norms

Authors: Pooja Gupta

Page 38-43

For Abstract: Click Here

Since the turn of the millennium, there have been various attempts by Indian regulators as well as the government to converge the current accounting system in India to a system similar to IFRS, considered today to be the prevalent worldwide set of accounting standards. Indian GAAP has had its fair share of criticism, the most telling being that it avoids the principle of substance over form in various topics in its literature. While suffering various setbacks through delays in recent years, the current roadmap indicates that certain companies will have to mandatorily adopt Indian Accounting Standards next year. When assessing the major differences between Indian Accounting Standards and IFRS to evaluate whether complete convergence can ever be possible, most differences are either avoidable or textual in nature. While it can be concluded that complete convergence can indeed be possible one day, it would benefit Indian entities to have a slow route to convergence in order to maintain a sense of comparability in their financial statements from Indian GAAP to Indian Accounting Standards.

Title: The Idea Of Democratic Decentralization

Authors: Dr. Manish Shrivastava

Page 50-57

For Abstract: Click Here

Decentralization and democracy may improve the chances for successful economic development. The importance of local government and democracy is evident in the history of many countries, but democratic local government has been less common in Africa than elsewhere. Democratic political competition can improve governance only if voters have a choice among qualified candidates who have good reputations for exercising power responsibly in public service. This essential supply of trusted democratic leadership can develop best in responsible institutions of local government, where successful local leaders can prove their qualifications to become strong competitive candidates for higher office. Thus, a federal constitutional structure that devolves substantial powers to autonomously elected local governments can increase the chances for successful democratic development. Foreign assistance can help to increase this vital supply of leaders with good reputations for spending public funds responsibly if some share of foreign-assistance funding is distributed directly to local governments and other local public service agencies.

Title: Concept Of Working Capital Management : An Overview

Authors: Dr. Simmi Choyal

Page 58-63

For Abstract: Click Here

Over the past 60 years major theoretical developments have occurred in the areas of longer?term investment and financial decision making. Many of these new concepts and the related techniques are now being employed successfully in industrial practice. By contrast, far less attention has been paid to the area of short?term finance, in particular that of working capital management. Such neglect might be acceptable were working capital considerations of relatively little importance to the firm, but effective working capital management has a crucial role to play in enhancing the profitability and growth of the firm. Indeed, experience shows that inadequate planning and control of working capital is one of the more common causes of business failure.

International Accounting Community is in the process of synchronizing accounting standards across the globe. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is a single set of accounting standards, developed and maintained by the IASB. Indian Government has been recently issued new Indian Accounting Standards (Ind. AS) which are converged with IFRS. In phased manner, the companies registered in India will be required to present their annual accounts according to new norms with effect from April, 2016. Convergence to IFRS has triggered a debate as well as led to the following research opportunities. First, whether switch to IFRS will yield benefit in terms of accounting quality and information comparability. Second, what will be the immediate effects of IFRS adoption on financial statement because of significant pre-IFRS accounting differences using the reconciliation statement provided in the first IFRS financial statement as required by IFRS. This study intends to focus on the first year of IFRS adoption; it will not only explore these issues independently but also explores the links between these dimensions. For this research eight Indian companies have been selected as the final sample which has recently transitioned to IFRS. The result of this research suggest that the change form Indian GAAP to IFRS is not statistically significant regarding financial ratio however, This is an overall effect based on the central value of medians and means.

The important thing for business and society at large to understand is the limit to voluntary action, which is the point where government needs to intervene. If we are to live within the earth’s capacity and share its resources equitably, economies must be transformed. That cannot be done by business alone”. This research paper sets out to describe the role of Social Profitability in government policy and examine its relevance to a particular sector, the regulated utilities. Current theoretical and political debates and activities conducted at the national and international level, suggest a widespread interest shared by government, industry, civil society and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) regarding the role of government and business for the natural environment, social development and social inclusion.

For Abstract: Click Here

The Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector is a critical component of India’s growth story, making significant contributions to GDP, employment and exports. As per the Ministry of MSME’s Annual Report for 2013-14, MSMEs account for nearly 40% of India’s exports and also contribute significantly to the generation of employment in the country, employing nearly 80-100 million people. The 3.61 crore (MSMEs), contributing 37.5 per cent of the country’s GDP, have a critical role in boosting industrial growth and ensuring the success of the Make in India programme. A number of schemes are being implemented for the establishment of new MSMEs and growth and development of existing ones. In the MSME context, finance encompasses equity capital, loans for fixed asset investment and working capital for meeting cash flow gaps. Several policy, regulatory & institutional initiatives have been taken to promote availability of finance to MSMEs. These include, among others, credit support mechanisms administered by government institutions. Realising the potential of the MSME sector will require significant efforts even in areas other than access to finance, including infrastructure, skill development, technical & managerial capacity building, alignment of goals of industrial research institutions, ease of doing business and simplification of laws, rules & procedures. This paper analyzes important aspects and closely linked issues to enhance the contribution of this sector in the formal economy.
