return as change” said Kamlakar Patil (42) a convenience store owner in Dugad village; he reported 50% losses since November 9 2016 Going cashless: Urban kirana shops reluctant; rural ones clueless Responding to the government’s call to go cashless in urban and semi-urban areas 8 percent of shopkeepers admitted to accepting cheques only from regular customers Nearly 17 percent said they now used PoS machines in their stores while 21 percent said they had or will apply to banks for the device Of the 20 percent of stores that have opened mobile-wallets all reported that customers were reluctant to use them “I opened a mobile-wallet account the balance is still zero as nobody has asked to use it for payments” said Thanaram Chaudhari (42) whose store in Ghodbunder Thane suffered 55-60% losses since notebandi began Chaudhari who is waiting for his PoS device to arrive from the bank also expressed reservations about charges incurred on every card swipe for purchases “It eats into my small margin of profits” he said “This is why we would prefer to make sales in cash any day” "Took a PayTM a/c over a month ago The balance remains nil as nobody pays through it" : Thanaram Choudhari (1/2)

Arun Jaitley announced debit and credit card transactions up to Rs 2000 would be exempt from the levy of service tax said this December 2016 report in The Hindu In Vasai a verdant region of palm trees and Portuguese-styled villas and churches overrun by the real estate industry today 40-year-old Manjit Patel’s kirana store has had a PoS device for seven years at least “After notebandi use of the device tripled quadrupled but losses remain at 60%” said Patel “Not many know how to use the technology and without change for Rs 2000 notes for customers I have lost out on business from fresh walk-ins” In rural Thane and Palghar IndiaSpend found that none of the kirana store owners surveyed owned or intended to own a PoS device or mobile wallet In 50 percent of the interviews respondents had never heard of these cashless modes After being told how these worked kirana owners dismissed the technology “People with ATM cards and mobile wallets don’t want to shop at kirana stores–they go to supermarkets” said shop owner Rameshwar Gupta (34) from Virar a once sylvan northwestern Mumbai suburb now populated by low-rise middle-class buildings and stores “I don’t know how to use mobile-wallets and neither do my customers” Shyam Jadhav (34) who owns a corner store in Khupari village Wada a heavily industrialised taluka of Palghar district said he would go cashless if customers demanded it “People don’t have proper bank accounts here” he said “How can I bring these systems when they don’t have the capacity to use it People here are illiterate and everything works on cash so what is the point” Santosh Jadhav a retail supplier in the Wada area said: “I don’t want to take cheques from every store owner because after that if I hand cheques to big traders they refuse to release products for distribution until the cheques clear A lot of time and money is wasted in this process” Goods supplier Santosh Jadhav: From Wada to Vikramgad supply chain to 203 Kiranas has

the banks (2/2) — Alison (@bexsaldanha) January 3 2017 We storified our tweets from IndiaSpend’s visit to kirana stores You can read them all here Among all store owners interviewed we found nearly 60 percent shared the same view: That either their stores were too small and the purchases made of too little value for mobile wallets and PoS machines or their customers like the store-owners were not educated enough to go cashless–or both All 24 respondents further admitted that while over the past few years mom-and-pop stores were already losing significant business to modern retail shops such as supermarket chains the trend has accelerated since notebandi Commenting on the flip-flops in policy post-demonetisation–the Reserve Bank of India issued 74 notifications in 50 days according to this December 2016 report in The Indian Express–Virar store owner Gupta said: “We’re in a lot of tension–every day there are new rules coming in We’re not sure what to do… even if we got mobile wallets or PoS machines it would not stop this exodus to supermarkets” Does organised retail = going cashless By 2020 India’s retail market is expected to more than double its current size to reach $13 trillion according to the 2015 A T Kearney report “Consumer and investor sentiment have seen an uptick as the pro-reform government under Narendra Modi sets out on an ambitious goal of improving its Ease of Doing Business ranking from 142nd to 50th in the next two years” it said describing India’s retail market to be on “the cusp of a strong growth phase” Organised retail means trading activities that are undertaken by licensed retailers who pay taxes whether sales tax income tax VAT and now the goods and services tax (GST) Unorganised retailing on the other hand refers to the traditional formats of low-cost retailing–for example the family-run kirana store paan/beedi shops convenience stores hand cart and pavement vendors who do not issue any or proper receipts for transactions and do not pay taxes A mainstay of India’s retail trade for centuries these small shops are more sources of livelihood and a refuge for the educated unemployed and underemployed said this 2014 research paper from Pondicherry University They are rarely larger than 500 sq ft their costs are low and margins slender they pay few taxes and know their customers said the study The GST could change this said a financial-inclusion expert requesting anonymity from an international private foundation which also funds an Indian digital-inclusion programme if the supply chain is encouraged to do away with informal receipts “So a retailer can accept cash payments despite being organised” said this expert “The mode of payment accepted by a retailer has nothing to do with the retailer being unorganised or organised” Currently 17 percent – or 204 million Indians–use smartphones of which no more than 54 percent (110 million) use their phones for digital purchases according to the 2015 PWC report “Receiving payments digitally may be in their (kirana stores’) favour as it will allow them to get access to formal credit; banks don’t appear keen to lend to them in the absence of any transaction details or in the absence of documented business accounts which could highlight their ability to repay loans” said the expert Despite losses majority still support Modi & notebandi Traditionally small traders and family-run kirana stores form a core vote-bank for Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) In 2006 India opened the single-brand retail sector to foreign investment up to 51% While it removed this cap in 2012 a 51% limit on foreign investment in multi-brand retail endures as the BJP believes such a move would hurt small independent stores said this Economic Times report from September 2016 Signalling a change in one of the party’s key stances PM Modi in the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections said small traders must embrace technology and create virtual malls “If books are available online then there is little reason for anyone to visit a shop” Modi said quoted in February 2014 in Mint Although notebandi has brought adversity half the shopkeepers we surveyed across urban semi-urban and rural areas expressed their support for demonetisation They believed their hardship was a by-product of “punishing the guilty rich” a sacrifice for the good for the nation “We poor anyway go through so much suffering regularly so we can brave a little more trouble if the rich are also forced to pay” said Patil the Dugad village store owner Sunny Patkar (27) a convenience store owner in Vajreshwari town of Bhiwandi taluka hopes that apart from solving the black money issue notebandi will bring other gains “This will help more people enter the tax system and from the increased income the government earns maybe we will get incentives/benefits and better development” said Patkar While 58 percent of respondents as we said continued to support the prime minister nearly 21% refused to comment on the political party they now support The rest (21%) said they did not vote or did not care for elections “We spend more time on the farm now that there is no business on the shop” said 28-year-old Megha Patil of Hiwali village in Bhiwandi taluka one of those who would not comment on notebandi because she believed it had failed to benefit her village “Our village supports Modiji despite the difficulty notebandi has caused” said Patil “We just wish the PM would pay more attention to the poor who are not farmers” "Business is down so we work on the farm more"

another store owner from the village admitted there has been some chatter of people re-thinking their support for Modi “You can’t blame them for thinking that way although many say this is good for the country” he said “It has caused us small folk quite a bit of suffering” Kirana store owner Jadhav of Khupari village in Wada believed just as there were good people advising Modi he was also surrounded by advisors with “questionable intentions” Said Jadhav: “My only fear is that while the government has caught rich people hoarding black money there are others who have already converted larger amounts of black money into white” Back on state highway 35 Ambika Kumbhar’s daughter-in-law Manisha (34) said the rich remained unaffected “Maybe the new incentives the government announced on

corporators to PCMC takes place on Tuesday One candidate has already been declared elected unopposed This will be the 7th civic election The first one was held in 1986 when municipal council was given the status of a municipal corporation The polling will take place at 1605 polling booths The police have already declared 88 polling centres and 373 polling booths as sensitive Watch what else is in the news “All arrangements for conducting the polling across Pimpri-Chinchwad have been made As many as 8000 EVMs have been checked re-checked and put in place” said PCMC election chief Yeshwant Mane Civic chief Dinesh Waghmare said in 2012 PCMC had 52 per cent polling but this time they are expecting around 70 per cent “We have gone all out to create awareness among voters” he said The main fight is widely considered to be between Ajit Pawar-led NCP the ruling party and BJP which has gone all-out to snatch power from NCP with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis himself closely monitoring the party’s fortunes The Shiv Sena is likely to do well in some pockets The Congress has struggled to find candidates as it managed to field only 70 of them First it was the Congress which single-handedly ruled PCMC from 1986 and then it was NCP which has maintained its supremacy for a past decade In fact in 2012 NCP created history when it won with a brute majority of 83 seats BJP and Sena never were in the race to PCMC’s seat of power In 2012 BJP’s performance had managed only 3 corporators while Sena had 15 corporators However in the run up to the 2017 elections the BJP upped the ante to capture the Pawar bastion “importing” several sitting NCP corporators and top leaders likes MLA Mahesh Landge and Azam Pansare in its bid to grab power Even former Shiv Sena MP Gajanan Babar was roped in In fact it all began during the assembly polls two years ago when Laxman Jagtap the close confidant of Ajit Pawar shifted loyalty to BJP Jagtap won the Chinchwad seat defeating Sena and NCP nominees Sensing opportunity the BJP wasted no time in annointing Jagtap as party’s local president And Jagtap too was quick on the job targeting NCP for corruption and then later poached NCP’s key players for the party With many turncoats by their side the BJP launched all-out assault with several top leaders including Fadnavis and Union Ministers such as Manohar Parrikar holding a slew of rallies to impress the voters and seeking a chance to prove their mettle In rallies after rallies the CM and other BJP leaders targeted NCP for corruption and promised transparency At his first meeting in Chinchwad CM said “From croreparti the PCMC is on way to becoming roadpati because of the massive corruption in PCMC by the ruling party” In his concluding rally Fadnavis urged voters to give BJP a chance to carry out five times more development work NCP which was looking down the barrel however seemed to have covered considerable ground as it went around seeking votes for development it carried out in Pimpri-Chinchwad “The BJP and the CM should show us one city in Maharashtra that can be compared to Pimpri-Chinchwad on the development index…” Ajit Pawar challenged Fadnavis during a public rally Pawar said if corruption is proved in PCMC he will give up politics NCP has seemingly risen to the challenge from BJP as it has picked several of its old guards — sitting corporators and ex corporators According to observers its panel of four candidates looks much stronger than the BJP’s BJP has struggled to find popular candidates even after poaching few from the NCP BJP chief Jagtap though puts up a brave front”Voters are fed up of corruption perpetuated by NCP…we will win maximum seats and uproot the NCP” he said However NCP leader Yogesh Behl was quick to ridicule the BJP claim

semi-finals in Montreal that included a win over Rafa Nadal and the teenage sensation is now eager to replicate that success on a much bigger stage Having already achieved the goals he set for this year the 18-year-old is oozing confidence in his bid to qualify for the Aug 28-Sept 10 US Open and keep his magical season alive Shapovalov who rocketed 76 spots higher to 67th in the world rankings this week said his march to the Montreal semis where he lost to eventual champion Alexander Zverev of Germany gave him the belief that he can beat even the best players “I fought in that match (against Nadal) and I got a lot of confidence when I broke him in the second set and that really gave me the belief that … I do belong on the court with these guys and I can compete with them” Shapovalov told a conference call on Thursday “Obviously I still have a lot of work to do to make sure that I can compete with them week in and week out but hopefully I can get there soon” Shapovalov who was born in Israel and moved to Canada before his first birthday started the year hovering around 250th in the rankings and set two main goals for 2017: crack the world’s top 150 and win a Challenger event While he has crossed both goals off his list it has not all been smooth sailing this year for Canada’s latest tennis hope Shapovalov made international headlines in February for

Montreal into a ticket to the year’s final grand slam tournament in New York “It’s been a long ride and I’ve been slowly getting better” said Shapovalov “Obviously there is a lot more room to improve

explanations for providing lower allocations to agriculture and the social sector is that these are state subjects Related News Indian agriculture as well as the rural sector have been in distress in the last two years due to deficit rainfall and thedecline in global commodity prices Therural non-agriculture sector too has been under stress due to the lack of demand for manufacturing and services It is well known that India’s progress in the social sector has been much slower than the country’s GDP growth India’s rank on the Human Development Index was a lowly 130 out of 188 countries in 2015 As such apart from focusing on physical infrastructure India has to invest in a big way in human capital inorder to improve human development and accelerate economic growth How far did Budget 2016 address the concerns of the rural areas and the social sector Can it revive Bharat and improve social sector outcomes On the face of it the measures announced for agriculture rural infrastructure and the social sector are in the right direction but the devil lies in the detail First doubling the incomes of farmers by 2022 is unrealistic Second although everyone thought there was a big increase of 94 per cent in the budget allocation for agriculture if one removes the amount for interest subsidy of short-term credit to farmers the increase in annual allocation is only around 27 per cent This increase is not low by itself but lower than what it appears to be Compared to this government’s two previous budgets the latest one gives greater importance to agriculture and rural areas The proposals on irrigation soil health pulses and the move towards giving fertiliser subsidies directly to farmers are good moves One expected a higher allocation to the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) Also the focus should have been on research and extension of services in order to improve technology-use and promote climate-resilient agricultural practices Both these areas are important for ensuring the sustainability of agriculture The budget’s focus on rural infrastructure can revive both demand and incomes in rural areas Rural development as a whole was allocated Rs 87765 crore The MGNREGA allocation is Rs 38500 crore although one expected an even higher allocation due to recent droughts The allocation for the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) was raised to around Rs 19000 crore There has been some discussion in recent years that the PMGSY is doing well compared to the performance of the MGNREGA But these two programmes instead of being substitutes complement each other Measures on rural electrification Swachh Bharat self-help groups rurban clusters education and skill development are expected to boost rural demand Moreover Rs 287 lakh crore have been provided to the local bodies Spending by panchayats will increase demand in rural areas However the impact of investment on infrastructure may take more time because of the long gestation period of such projects Moreover the impact also depends on the efficacy of implementation Turning to the social sector there was a significant decline in social-sector spending in last year’s budget One expected higher expenditure in this sector given the need for improving human development But the allocations under different heads in the social sector show that there was either a marginal increase or indeed a decline over the already low allocations in last year’s budget For example the projected funding for the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) showed only a marginal increase In the budget speech the finance minister said “catastrophic health events are the single-most important cause of unforeseen out-of-pocket expenditure which pushes lakhs of households below the poverty line every year” In this context the new health protection scheme which will provide a health cover of upto Rs 1 lakh per family is a good proposal Of course Rs 1 lakh is not enough for catastrophic health events The approach on health seems to be limited to providing insurance coverage and access to medicines The “universal health for all” approach seems to have been forgotten Similarly the education sector needs improvement Here too allocations to programmes such as the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan have not improved Apart from allocations measures to improve the quality of education are also required The Economic Survey quotes the findings from the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) There is only a marginal improvement in the percentage of children in Class 5 who are able to read a Class 2-level text The percentage of Class 3 children able to solve simple two-digit subtraction problems fell from 261 per cent in 2013 to 253 per cent in 2014 The trends in social-sector allocations show that the share of social services expenditure in the GDP fell from 7 per cent in 2014-15 (revised estimates) to 67 per cent in 2015-16 (budget estimates) Similarly the shares of expenditures on education and health were respectively stagnant at 3 per cent and 13 per cent of the GDP in the last few years The need for a significant increase in the social sector expenditure is obvious In particular the expenditure on the health sector needs to increase from the present 13 per cent of the GDP to 2-25 per cent One of the explanations for providing lower allocations to agriculture and the social sector is that these are state subjects The 14th Finance Commission increased the states’ share of Central tax revenues from 32 per cent to 42 per cent Therefore states are supposed to spend the shortfall created by the decline in Central allocations to these sectors As several studies show states will have enough money to invest in the social sector But this assumption may be unrealistic given the fiscal challenges facing the states in the next few years The Centre may have to continue to fund these crucial areas However in the social sector outcomes are more important than allocations The challenge is improving the efficiency of delivery systems In the past outlays have not fully translated into outcomes due to poor delivery systems Using modern technology for the efficient delivery of programmes simplifying procedures and greater participation of the beneficiaries can help in creating a better delivery mechanism The use of Aadhaar would be helpful India which is aspiring to be a global power should achieve higher in human development There are significant costs to ignoring human capital Some estimates indicate that there is a 2 to 3 per cent (GDP) loss due to malnutrition-related low productivity Research shows that every dollar spent on interventions to reduce malnutrition among children generates about $20-$30 in economic returns The government should understand the intrinsic value of people’s health and the instrumental value of human capital in terms of GDP gain and returns on investment To conclude the budget is a good start for Bharat but it is a mixed bag for the socialsector Given the problems in these sectors one expected a bigger push and bolder measures than those proposed in the budget The writer is acting chairman of the National

Minister Naveen Patnaik Related News Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today sought steps from the Centre to provide Visa on Arrival facility and a stop in Bhubaneswar of Air India’s Colombo-Varanasi flight The Chief Minister made the requests in separate letters to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Civil Aviation Minister A Gajapathi Raju “The state government has established international connectivity recently with Air Asia starting its operations between Bhubaneswar and Kuala Lumpur The state government is providing viability gap funding to the international carrier for its operations” Patnaik said in his letter to Swaraj Stating that there has been a good response to this international connectivity with Indian citizens travelling abroad through Bhubaneswar he said a sizeable number of foreign arrivals have also been noticed “In order to facilitate the travel of arriving tourists it is requested that Bhubaneswar be included as a ‘Visa on Arrival’ Station for citizens of the eligible nations” Patnaik said “It would encourage people from countries connected by the recently launched international connectivity and boost tourist footfalls to our state” he said In his letter to Raju the Chief Minister said launching of Air India flight from Colombo to Varanasi recently would be useful in promotion of heritage tourism and in increasing the traffic from Sri Lanka into India Emphasising that Odisha is a land of rich cultural heritage where Emperor Ashoka converted to Buddhism and spread the message across the world he said the diamond triangle of Buddhist sites has conclusively established that Odisha was an important centre of Buddhism during 3rd century BC In the recently held International Buddhist conclave and other discussions in different fora the tour operators academicians and revered monks from Sri Lanka have expressed strong desire to come to Odisha to explore Buddhist sites the chief minister said “However as there is no direct air connectivity Sri Lankan tourist find it difficult to visit Odisha” he said “In order to meet this strong unmet demand I would request that Bhubaneswar may be included as a stop for the Colombo-Varanasi flight This will help in increasing the tourist footfalls for both Odisha and Varanasi” the Chief Minister said For all the latest Bhubaneswar News download Indian Express App More Related NewsOn Wednesday a PIL was filed in the Gujarat High Court against developers of the location-based augmented reality game Pokémon Go alleging it hurts religious sentiments of certain communities by showing eggs in places of worship The petitioner — Alay Anil Dave — has said eggs are considered as non-vegetarian food and it is blasphemous to carry non-vegetarian food inside a place of worship of Hindus and Jains Now maybe Dave must have undergone some really traumatic experience to be able to gather the courage to file this PIL The image of an egg in a temple could have questioned his religious identity and the existence of God The impurity of a virtual egg in a temple must have angered the gods who in turn must have asked Dave to go to the court of law and file a suit against the makers of the highly popular game Or he must have definitely pre-empted the end of the world by the sight of an egg How could he have done that But of course through the Butterfree Effect (that bares no resemblance to the butterfly effect Honest) Here is a look at what must have probably been Dave’s thought process when he saw the image of an egg in the temple The Butterfree Effect How will this PIL affect the makers of Pokémon Go It won’t affect them At all John Hanke (the mastermind behindPokémon Go) must probably be sitting in his fancy office staring at his computerscreen reading this news alert hurt by the foolishness of the PIL If we approach the matter logically the terms and conditions of the game clearly states that the onus is on the user to use his discretion to not hurt the sentiments of the society "By way of example and not as a limitation you agree that when using the Services and Content you will not: – defame abuse harass harm stalk threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights (including the rights of privacy and publicity) of others – upload post email transmit or otherwise make available any unlawful inappropriate defamatory obscene pornographic vulgar offensive fraudulent false misleading or deceptive Content or message – promote or engage in discrimination bigotry racism hatred or harassment against any individual or group" Moreover what if a person were to indulge in some ‘food porn’ in the temple and stare up at the picture of a ‘barbecue chicken’ Would it then be fair to sue the creators of ‘barbecue chicken’ Recently PTI reported thatthe Supreme Court of Indiaquashed criminal proceedings initiated against India’s ODI captain MS Dhoni for allegedly hurting religious sentiments by portraying himself as Lord Vishnu on the cover of a business magazine Bengaluru additional chief metropolitan magistrate (ACMM) had directed registration of a case against Dhoni under section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) and had also issued summons to the cricketer for him to appear before the court after which he moved the High Court Karnataka High Court had refused to stall the criminal proceedings against Dhoni The HC order was challenged by Dhoni who found the complain frivolous According to The Times of India report commenting on the case senior advocate Amrendra Sharan had said "The SC while upholding the constitutional validity of Section 295A laid down that insults to religion offered unwittingly or carelessly or without any deliberate or malicious intention to outrage the religious feelings of that class do not come within the Section and it has to be proved that the person so accused had deliberately and with mala fide intentions outraged the religious feeling" Now we can’t imagine John Hanke sitting in his notorious man cave scratching his head looking for innovative ways to insult religious sentiments of the Hindu/Jain community So maybe Indian judges would deem this issue frivolous enough to quash it If they do then more power to them The larger picture of ‘religious sentiments’ Dave’s logic while filing the PIL against Niantic (the game developer) was that the game hurts religious sentiments of certain communities by showing eggs in places of worship Among other things the image of eggs shown in the augmented reality game appear in places of worship of different religious groups The petitioner has said eggs are considered as non-vegetarian food and it is blasphemous to carry non-vegetarian food inside a place of worship of Hindus and Jains So following that sentiment leather products should be banned Slightly juvenile but hey animal cruelty is not encouraged by most religions Perfumes which usually use alcohol and animal parts to create fragrance will have to be banned Use of cosmetic products like lipsticks would have to be banned for they are made after extensive animal testing Cow brains and spinal cord are used while making lipstick and hair spray because they are cheaper than plant-based or synthetic ingredients So let’s haul a woman out of the temple for using lipstick or let’s just file a PIL against the creators of lipstick Following Dave’s flawed logic the Shani Shingnapur temple trust would be thenjustified in not allowing women from entering the inner sanctum because it hurts the ‘religious sentiments’ of some people Butreligious sentiments are not as important as a person’s basic freedom In other instances of outrageous PILs in July 2016 a PIL was moved in the Delhi High Court seeking to restrain manufacture supply and sale of ‘Godfather’ beer in the national capital saying that it hurt religious sentiments The plea by a civic organisation had submitted that "sentiments and emotions" of the public at large of every religion would be affected as the word ‘God’ is used by everyone to refer to the "almighty power" "The Godfather (beer) manufacturers are against humanity and the principle of natural justice as they are intentionally harassing and damaging religious emotions" the plea had alleged So associating beer with god is practically insulting all the gods who must have clearly hated the effects of alcohol It hurts religious sentiments don’t you know This battle of consumption of animal products/alcohol by people has long been waged and has caused a lot of heart-ache to religious leaders So at what point should logic take over It is difficult enough to sustain life in this hyper-active modern world of ours We definitely do not need PILs in courts because of egg images in places of worship The 40-year-old Mayweather has been retired since beating Andre Berto in September 2015 and improving his career record
