Shirley MacLaine,inclusive growth?policymaking could do with greater inclusivity Has any policymaker asked a migrant worker or slum dweller why they left home The most commonly cited reason is the lack of opportunity there But what do people seekto be able to stay in the village One of the main problems is the fragmentation of land holdingswhich reach a stage where the produce is not enough to sustain growing families and the fact that no non-farm opportunities have been created The need to establish enterprise and provide worthwhile employment has been spoken about for years Aside from the enormous benefits of arresting rural migration to overloaded citiesnon-farm initiatives are imperative if the lives of the huge population in villages are to be made sustainable The food processing sector would be ideal for adding substantially to employment and GDP The developed world processes over 35 per cent of its agricultural produce We havewith difficultynow reached about 4 per cent We are among the largest global producers of fruitvegetables and milk Yetwe have high food inflation and an estimated 40 per cent of our production is lost either in storage or during transportation The government has been talking about a thrust on agriculture for over two decadesbut we do not yet have agro-terminals in placewhich would be a basic prerequisite (Bhartis initiative in Amritsar is at least a start) Countries like Kenya have had such terminals in place since the 1980sand the developed countries much earlier Our fresh food exports are uncompetitive because of the lack of such terminals Even domesticallylitchis are barely known in southern Indiaor mangosteens in northern India for the lack of a supply chain In the mid 1990sI was involved with a large Indian corporation in attempting to export strawberries and asparagus to the developed world Having brought in planting material and technology from Francewe grew world-class products The problem was the lack of a delivery system to sell in the international marketforcing us to move away from perishables and into semi-perishable products like honey We were pioneers in exporting honey to the developed worldbut we could have got better realisations if the government had acted Thirty per cent of the honey in India is produced in aviariesthe remaining 70 per cent is forest honey organicbecause who applies fertiliser or pesticide in forests We do not have the certification infrastructure in place so the returns are much lower The hunters who collect forest honey at great peril to themselves do not get a fair price and oftenunscrupulous traders adulterate the honey Henceforest honey over the years has been branded as lower quality honeywhich is not the case Are policymakers aware of this Indiadespite having one of the lowest yields internationallyhas immense potential to increase volumes from the same acreage With our vast land mass and variety of agro-climatic conditionsthere are few products that we cannot growincluding medicinal plants Apart from the economic benefits and the reduction of wastethe employment opportunities that food processing would createespecially in rural Indiawould be huge Ancillaries would also come upcreating further job opportunities Entrepreneurs would establish mini-businesseseating placesphotocopyingtransportationconstructionetc With retailing growing in leaps and boundsthe demand for processed foods is also bound to grow Retailing will also provide better returns to farmers by reducing the number of middlemen Farmers would also gain from the food processing units need to procure better quality and quantity and so the factory would provide the necessary expertise and technology to increase the yield and quality in their own interest Pepsi had established this concept with tomato processing in Punjab in the early 1990s when the government insisted on their engaging in hard currency-earning activity if they wanted to enter the Indian market They increased the tomato yield about 10 times with technology Our network of prestigious agricultural universities and extension workerswho took the benefits of this research to farmersmust be strengthened Despite the opportunity in food processing having been recognised for decadeswhy do we still process below 4 per cent of our production Food processing would be a solution to addressing

should learn from experiences and design the details carefully Related News Kudos to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and all others in the Delhi government responsible for announcing a car-restriction programme It is great to see city leaders realise that private vehicles cannot solve its mobility problem and start a diet programme Even London needed 30 years of debate before a visionary mayor Ken Livingstone put in place a congestion tax In the last 20-30 years Delhi has been building wider and faster roads as well as more flyovers to solve urban transport Clearly it hasn’t worked Delhi has 10000 km of roads one of the highest road densities in the world But this has only increased congestion and amplified associated externalities like air pollution and traffic fatalities People have got used to their private vehicles Nobody understands the full cost of using a car Nobody realises that 10 per cent of car users monopolise the bulk of the public asset that is roads Parking is another huge subsidy a car owner receives In addition private vehicle users create huge social and environmental costs due to congestion air pollution and road traffic deaths Several cities around the world including Mexico City Bogota Sao Paulo and Santiago have implemented licence-plate restrictions in various forms Mexico City’s story resembles Delhi where car restriction was started to counter the extremely high pollution levels in winter The idea originated when air pollution levels were seen to drop significantly on car-free days similar to Delhi’s Raahgiri initiative where small sections of roads are car-free on Sundays Vehicle restrictions in Mexico City began in 1987 as a voluntary initiative led by an environmental group By 1989 the metropolitan area of Mexico City was faced with such high levels of atmospheric ozone that the government implemented a programme that banned the circulation of 20 per cent of all private vehicles on each weekday between 5 am and 10 pm The ban was based on the last digit of the vehicle’s licence plate Early results were good with reduced fuel consumption faster road speeds etc However these gains were shortlived as by 1995 about 22 per cent people had bought second cars These second cars became notorious as “chocolate cars” for the colour of their exhaust as they were cheaper older poorly maintained vehicles bought with the purpose of circumventing the car restriction by those who could afford it Vehicle restrictions were first introduced in Bogota in 1998 Here 40 per cent of private vehicles were prevented from operating in the city each day between 7 and 9 am and between 530 and 730 pm Vehicles having any of four digits as the last digit of their number plate are restricted each day Over the years the programme has helped significantly reduce peak-hour congestion in Bogota While congestion has reportedly worsened in the hours before and after the restriction period peak-hour travel times have reduced by 40-50 per cent and car users have managed to change their schedules organise car pools or use taxis The reason Bogota succeeded where Mexico City struggled was that the initiative in Bogota was accompanied with implementation of the bus rapid transit (BRT) and cycling infrastructure This ensured that public transport was boosted to deal with the added influx of people and did not choke with the additional pressure The Delhi government should learn from these experiences and design the details carefully For example policies and rules to prevent second-car purchases should be envisioned Research shows that middle-class or lower-middle-class women are most impacted by this policy The needs of these groups should be understood and alternatives like carpools and taxis should be presented to them An accompanying campaign targeted to improve women’s security in buses and other public spaces should be started This is a good short-term measure that helps initiate a much-needed conversation on restricting motor-vehicle use In the medium term there are complementary measures to make our urban transport system more accessible and equitable that should be taken One roads must be made safer for people to walk and cycle Two the speed and quality of bus-based mass transport including BRT must improve Three there needs to be multimodal integration through schedule fare and physical integration Finally progressive regulations for emerging shared mobility trends like ridesharing carpooling shared bicycles and taxi aggregators should be followed The writer is India director the WRI Ross Centre
