Why Raghuram Rajan does not deserve a second chance for RBI governorship

Media is all going wild these days with speculations and support for a second term for RBI Governor. But many groups in social media are mobilizing support for him for gains that are totally contrary to interests of our nation.

Under his stewardship, banks have had their worst performances, primarily for his policies to encourage loans to corporates with strong political connections. Loans were disbursed by banks without proper compliance and procedure, leading to huge losses. It is such forces which now want him to continue. So as to keep encouraging such practices.

For those who feel, he being out of government is a good sign, look at how bank licenses have been issued. RBI still doles out licenses on a whim and in a very miserly fashion. A modern outlook demands that licenses should be offered on tap but no, the Governor didn't encourage that.

Look at the overall customer service in the banking industry. Its pathetic, largely because RBI does not encourage banks to be people friendly. It should be the role of a regulator to encourage such policies which are beneficial to consumers.

As a whole, if you see, the banking sector is performing extremely poorly today and I had written two blogs on this previously as well.

People should be prudent and research well, before blindly believing into the section of social media who wants further exploitation of the banking sector. This they believe would benefit the rich and powerful.

 In fact, the only positives happening from the Jan Dhan Yojna or action against NPA accounts, is coming out from prodding by the Government of India.

Does India Need communal parties?

I think, it was Tan's post on this blog itself, Republic Day Event, where this question was raised. My answer. YES. we need communal parties even in Independent, Secular India. Now let me take you, back to events before 1947. When India was a colony of the British Empire. The congress party, in its attempt to gain momentum for the independence movement, heavily used Hinduism, an example of which is the famous Ganesh Utsav held in Mumbai every year. Who complains? No one. But at that time, due to various policies of the congress, Muslims started feeling alienated. Jinnah, in these times, got stubborn over the need of Pakistan and he did find a lot of supporters. Congress, up till late 1940's never got bothered by it. And why should we? Who complains? No one. But there were repercussions. The way people were butchered and slaughtered during that brief time when India got partitioned, was even worse than a civil war scenario. All in the name of religion. And there indeed
