Abbas Naqvi (File Photo) Top News A law on the practice of ‘triple talaq’ among Muslims would be formulated only after there is a consensus among the stakeholders Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said in Mumbai on Friday “Triple talaq is a serious issue Non-serious players should not destroy the positive constructive debate over it Reforms should start from within the community not from outside” Naqvi who was in the city to attend a programme at the Haj House told PTI He said suggestions on ‘triple talaq’ were pouring in from different sections of the society and discussions were underway with all the stakeholders “Some people are supporting while some are opposing It is all part of a healthy democracy As far as the government is concerned we will wait for a consensus before forming any law on triple talaq It (the law) will not be sudden The process is on” Naqvi said “Whatever the government does will be done within the framework of the Constitution but a consensus on triple talaq remains a priority for us” he added The Centre had earlier this week told the Supreme Court that the practices of ‘triple talaq’ ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy had an adverse

NewsWritten by Sandeep Singh Sharmistha Mukherjee | Updated: August 12 2015 5:53 am A look into the year-on-year monthly credit growth data for the infrastructure sector over the last two years shows a consistent decline in credit demand from banks which more-than-halved during the period Related News Infrastructure development slated to lead the investment-led recovery of the economy seems to have missed the expectations that the Narendra Modi-led government had brought with it While on one hand the corporate performance for the quarter ended June 2015 reflects a drag in the economy the declining credit growth of banks — as per recently released Reserve Bank of India data —suggests weak investment sentiments across several infrastructure sectors In line with non-food credit growth which hit a two-decade low of 84 per cent in the month ended June 2015 the infrastructure sector too witnessed a sharp decline in credit demand for development of road power and other infra projects over the last two years A look into the year-on-year monthly credit growth data for the infrastructure sector over the last two years shows a consistent decline in credit demand from banks which more-than-halved during the period While credit growth for the overall infrastructure sector hovered around 20 per cent in June 2013 it declined to around 11 per cent in June 2014 And in June 2015 even after more than 14 months have elapsed since the new government — which had brought in hopes of a spectacular revival — took charge signs of any improvement in the sector still remains elusive The month witnessed infrastructure credit growth dipping to around 9 per cent Though the demand from the power sector is still growing in double digits and stood at 131 per cent in June 2015 it has come down sharply from 298 per cent in June 2013 and 144 per cent in June 2014 The road sector however seems to be the worst hit and the credit demand in the sector slowed down to 34 per cent in June 2015 It stood at 215 per cent in June 2013 and had come down to 146 per cent in June 2014 Economists say that the government needs to put in a lot more effort to kick-off the stalled projects in order to improve the borrowing ability of the handful of promoters who are involved in executing these projects While the Centre is rolling out new concessions they say that it alone won’t help and the government needs to look at ways to revive old projects in order to enthuse the banks to lend “The legacy of stalled projects is very high and non-performing assets (NPAs) of the infrastructure sector account for almost 50 per cent of the total NPAs in the banking system Only if the stalled projects are revived the borrowing ability of the companies within the system will improve and banks will get encouraged to lend more” said a former senior RBI official who did not wish to be named There are others who raise similar concern A leading sectoral expert pointed out that while NPAs will have to be taken-off the books of the banks the government will also have to sort out the issue of limited number of promoters operating in this segment “The bandwidth and the capacity of the existing few players is a serious issue that the government needs to fix Also if the NPAs continue to be on the banks’ books they won’t offer credit to them” said the expert There is however a silver lining with the road sector has witnessed pick-up in activity in revival of stalled projects over the last few months In first three months of 2015-16 government has managed to either award or is in advanced stage of finalising 1000 km projects worth around Rs 13500 crore on a build operate transfer (BOT-Toll) basis This is in sharp contrast to the 734 km of roads projects valued at Rs 6300 crore awarded on this mode in the whole of last financial year While the government is aiming at awarding about 2000 km of highway development projects on public-private partnership basis out of its total target of 10000 km for the current financial year the remaining projects will be awarded on engineering procurement construction (EPC) basis and under the newly conceived hybrid annuity model But experts feel that it will take some time before the demand for credit starts trickling in “Credit demand has not picked up because not many new projects have been awarded The pace of execution of old projects is also slow While the ministry has been trying to revive private interest by coming up with new models and participatory structures it will take another three to six months for these to get approvals award bids and see real action happening on-ground” said Vishwas Udgirkar senior director (infrastructure) Deloitte The government however seems enthused with the developments A senior official in the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) said “We have already awarded two projects in the first three months of this fiscal year; another six are in the pipeline They have all received strong and multiple bids” The government has allocated Rs 42913 crore for the highways sector in the Union Budget 2015-16 for the current fiscal up from Rs 28881 crore in 2014-15 to ensure greater participation in road building in absence of private investment But with such mega projects in the pipeline the government has also been exploring different terms of engagement to lure in the private sector in investing in road infrastructure development projects But this alone won’t help While credit growth reflects the economic activity on the ground experts say that bank’s have to be comfortable lending to the players within these sectors (roads and power) who are stressed with high levels of NPAs An expert said that the formation of National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) will also help as it will help financing in the sector The finance ministry is already in the process of finalising the contours of the proposed NIIF Announced as part of the Budget the NIIF will have an allocation of Rs 20000 crore half of which is expected to come from blue chip public sector units As a means to get long-term funding for core sector projects finance minister Arun Jaitley had said that the NIIF would raise debt and in turn invest as equity in infrastructure finance companies such as the Indian Railway Finance Corporation (IRFC) and National Housing Board (NHB)
