Introduction : Introduction Globalisation is the buzzword that has come to dominate the world since the nineties of the last century. Till 90s the process of globalisation of the Indian economy was constrained by the barriers to trade and investment. Liberalisation of trade, investment and financial flows initiated in the nineties has progressively lowered the barriers to competition and making the Indian economy as fastest growing economy and globally competitive. 2

Slide3 : This era of reforms has also ushered in a remarkable change in the Indian mindset, as: it deviates from the traditional values held since Independence in 1947, such as self reliance and socialistic policies of economic development, which mainly due to the inward looking restrictive form of governance, resulted in the isolation, overall backwardness and inefficiency of the economy. 3

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; 8

Slide9 : 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 labor productivity, bad industrial relations, etc.; Large number of sick companies. 9

Impact of Globalization on Indian Economy : Impact of Globalization on Indian Economy The novel “Tale of Two Cities” of Charles Dickens begins with a description of the contradictions of the times: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of disbelief; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us.   At the present, we can also say about the tale of two India's: We have the best of times; we have the worst of times. There is sparkling prosperity, there is stinking poverty. We have dazzling five star hotels side by side with biggest slum of Asia. We have everything by globalization, we have nothing by globalization. 23

The Bright Side of Globalization : The Bright Side of Globalization India's economic growth has been high, exports have boomed, employment has surged, long-term inflation rate has gone down, scarcity of goods have disappeared, the quality of products available have improved substantially and overall India has become progressively vibrant and internationally competitive. Growth of the service sector due to the increase in urbanization, privatization and more demand for intermediate and final consumer services. In advanced economies the growth in the primary and secondary sectors are directly dependent on the growth of services like banking, insurance, trade, commerce, entertainment, etc. 25

: The rate of growth of the Gross Domestic Product of India has been on the increase from 5.6 per cent during 1980-90 to 9.2% in the 2006-07. The foreign exchange reserves (as at the end of the financial year) were $ 39 billion (2000-01), $ 107 billion (2003-04), $ 145 billion (2005-06) and $ 180 billion (in February 2007). In respect of market capitalization India is in the fourth position with $ 894 billion As per the Forbes list for 2007, the number of billionaires of India has risen to 40 more than Japan (24), China (17), France (14) and Italy (14 ). 26

While the major items imported to India are Petroleum Crude , Gold & Silver, Electronic Goods, Pearls & Precious Stones, Non- electrical Machinery and Organic & Inorganic Chemicals. The major destination of India’s export has been Asia, Europe and North America . United Arab Emirates remain on top position in terms of best export destination, while China remains the best import destination for India. 27

The Dark Side of Globalization   : The Dark Side of Globalization   On the other side of the medal, there is a long list of the worst of the times, the foremost casualty being the agriculture sector. In 1951, agriculture provided employment to 72 per cent of the population and contributed 59 per cent of the gross domestic product. However, by 2001 the population depending upon agriculture came to 58 per cent whereas the share of agriculture in the GDP went down drastically to 24 per cent and further to 22 per cent in 2006-07. Globalisation has lowered the per capita income of the farmers and increased the rural indebtedness. In India about 60% of the population directly depending on this sector , low agricultural growth has serious implications for the inclusiveness of growth. 30

Slide31 : The farmers are destined to die of starvation or suicide . Replying to the Short Duration Discussion on Import of Wheat and Agrarian Distress on May 18, 2006, Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar informed the Rajya Sabha that roughly 1,00,000 farmers committed suicide during the period 1993-2003 mainly due to indebtedness. During the post-reform period, India has been shining brilliantly with a growing number of billionaires. Nobody has taken note of the sufferings of the family members of those unfortunate hundred thousand farmers. 31

Growth of Unemployment & Poverty   : Growth of Unemployment & Poverty   ILO Report (2004) stated: In India, there had been winners and losers. The lives of the educated and the rich had been enriched by globalization. The information technology (IT) sector was a particular beneficiary. But the benefits had not yet reached the majority, and new risks had cropped up for the losers the socially deprived and the rural poor. 32

Growth of Slum Capitals : Growth of Slum Capitals Mumbai city has 54 per cent in slums.  It is estimated that 100 to 300 new families come to Mumbai every day and most land up in a slum colony. Mumbai is known as slum capital of India and the biggest slum of Asia, it is all set to become the slum capital of the world . In Delhi, 45 per cent population lives in slums, unauthorized colonies, JJ clusters and undeveloped rural parts. The FDI inflows have in no way assisted in improving the health and environment conditions of the people. 33

To make Globalization Work   : To make Globalization Work   India should pay immediate attention to ensure rapid development in education, health, water and sanitation, labor and employment. A strong foundation of human development of all people is essential for the social, political and economic development of the country . O ur progress in education has been slow and superficial, without depth and quality, to compete the international standards, so quality of education should be improved. G overnment should take immediate steps to increase agricultural production and create additional employment opportunities in the rural parts. 34
