back earn a commission in the process and also have the power to appoint members to the board who have no background in banking; except having a bank account as owners of petrol pumps relatives of

February 26 2013 3:53 am Related News The rail budget must spell out how it will attract private investment Union Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal has a daunting task of locating resources for pulling back the Indian Railways (IR) from the brink of bankruptcyfor enhancing safetyimplementing modernisation and augmenting capacities He also has to weed out projects of doubtful social relevance justified on grounds of equity The latter is easier said than done since the IR is also looked upon as an instrument of social policy for integrating the countryopening up remote areas to settlement and economic development and offering low fares for those who cannot afford to pay For these reasonsinvestments with less than market return cannot be entirely wished away Since determining to what extent an investment will aid the disadvantaged has been a problemthe judgement of the minister has ultimately decided the issue As long as ministers ensured that investments in projects with less than market return did not undermine the IRs financial stabilitythe outcome was good Howeverover the last two decades or sorailway ministers have been increasingly buffeted by the winds of coalition politics and have sought new political constituencies by extending sops in the form of concessionsand trains and projects in remote areas In factrailway ministers have been able to use voters disparate objectives and the varied patterns of distribution of voting power to justify self-serving behaviour Moreoverunlike private-sector firmsthe Central government can often tax its way out of financial difficulties This blunts the threat of financial distress and reduces its effectiveness in deterring railway ministers from uneconomical investment This has led to the diversion of scarce capital to projects or services that dont give adequate returnsforcing the IR to cut expenditure on replacement of over-aged assetsexpansion and modernisation The impact of this shows in falling safety standards and poor service Two committees to look into the funding needs of the IR for modernisation and enhancing safety were constituted in 2011 by then-Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi The Expert Group for Modernisation of Indian Railwaysheaded by Sam Pitrodaestimated thatfor undoing the effects of severe and chronic underinvestment in railway infrastructure and modernising the systemRs 56 trillion was required The High Level Safety Review Committeechaired by Anil Kakodkarheld the IRs poor financial health as one of the reasons for the drift in safety and estimated thatfor modernisation and replacement of over-aged assetsa sum of Rs 103 tn was needed In addition to the sums estimated by the two committeesthe IR needs a significant infusion of capital for capacity argumentation to meet the expected increase in traffic over the next five years The 12th Five Year Plan estimates are Rs 443 tnwhich makes for a total overall investment requirement over the next five years to be around Rs 1106 tn The Planning Commission has agreed to provide a gross budgetary support of Rs 354 tn against the IRs request of Rs 10 tnwhich leaves it with a substantial gap of Rs 649 tn to fund from internal and other resources The IR expects it can generate Rs 2 tn from internal resourcesand about Rs 1685 billion from market borrowinggreen energy and road safety funds The balance will have to come from state governments and through PPPs Howeverdespite all these effortsthe IR will still be left with a visible funding gap of about Rs 105 tn or nearly 10 per cent of the required investment Bansal has the difficult task of covering this shortfall and removing institutional roadblocks that have prevented the IR from getting funds through the PPP route The IRs experience in the 11th Plan was far from satisfactory Against the planned extra-budgetary support of Rs 7465 bnit was able to raise only Rs 5446 bn that isa shortfall of 32 per cent One of the main reasons was the failure of the PPP initiative It could generate only 4 per cent of the total plan outlaywhich is far less than what was achieved in other infrastructure sectorssuch asports80 per centtelecom82 per centelectricity44 per centairports64 per cent and roads16 per cent One of the reasons for the PPP initiatives failure was the lack of experience and the complex nature of obligation to customers There are also legal restrictions that dont allow core railway operations to be privatised Despite these difficultiesthere have been a few successful PPP projectssuch as the Viramgam-Mahesana Gauge Conversion projectSurendranagar Pipavav Rail project and the Gandhidham Palanpur Railway projectwhich could be models for last-mile connectivity and core infrastructure industries It also shows thatwith a clear policy framework for promoting private sector investment and FDIit is possible for the IR to raise resources for its modernisation and expansion In factit should be quite easy for the IR to put in place effective policies as all decisions are taken by the nodal ministry In practicehoweverthe IR has found it most difficult to bring in policies conducive to private investment participation The big question iswill Bansal spell out in his budget how he expects to get private sector participationespecially through the PPP routein the face of dismal past performance In additionwill he spell out his thinking on how he judges the important issue of social equity in rail investment so that projects of doubtful social benefit are not funded at the cost of projects that can give market returns The writer is former general managerIndian Railways and former memberCentral Administrative Tribunal [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
