Deflation fears in 2009-’10 DEC. 2008 – KURLA II AREA

  • Indian economy may go into deflation by the second quarter of financial year 2009-10, as there are fears of inflation going below zero per cent in the face of unprecedented fall in crude and commodity prices.

  • “If the current pace in inflation-decline continues, the figure (in WPI-based inflation) may slide below 2% by end-fiscal,” HDFC Bank’s deputy head of treasury, Ashish Parthasarathy, said, adding “it may fall further to below zero per cent by second quarter of next fiscal”.

Deflation fears in 2009 101
Deflation fears in 2009-’10 DEC. 2008 – KURLA II AREA

  • Inflation almost halved to a nine-month low of 6.61% from this year’s peak of 12.91%, giving more space to the RBI to signal further cuts in interest rates. Deflation occurs in an economy when the negative inflation prevails for a long period. In the event of deflation, the Reserve Bank will have to enhance money supply and lower rates further “to support inflation”, IDBI Gilts’ Economist Amol Agarwal said. Citibank India’s CFO Abhijit Sen echoed this view saying the rapid decline in the headline inflation is likely to continue in the coming months. “In my view, deflation is a remote possibility in this economy. However, if the inflation continue to fall to much lower levels, this would have an impact on the profitability of banks, as it would affect the credit demand,” Sen said.

Is slowdown forcing employee down sizing cost cutting at ril
Is slowdown forcing employee down-sizing, cost-cutting at RIL?

  • Mon, Dec 22 02:15 AM

  • Economic slowdown has not spared even the largest conglomerate in India, Reliance Industries, which is carrying out major cost cutting measures, including downsizing of the staff, and has apparently put on hold mega investment plans.

  • From retail to SEZs to the $6 billion semiconductor business, investment plans appear to be caught in the web of the slowdown.

  • "As a good corporate practice, we constantly examine cost competitiveness and take appropriate measures regularly. It is a practice which is undertaken constantly at Reliance," a spokesperson for Mukesh Ambani-led RIL group said.

Is slowdown forcing employee down-sizing, cost-cutting at RIL?

  • He was responding to a query whether the group was going ahead with a major restructuring and if it had mandated consultants like Cummins to recommend human resource remedy

  • Though the spokesperson dismissed the possibility of restructuring as speculative, sources said that one of major indicators of the cost-cutting was that RIL had vacated five floors it had rented in a Connaught Place building and moved to another office in Okhla, amid speculations that many of the outsourced employees—be those for retail or SEZ businesses—were shown the door.

  • Asked if a salary cut of up to 15% was in the offing for its middle-to-senior level executives, he said the query was "baseless and speculative" and "we do not wish to comment on the same".

  • He also evaded a direct reply to a question whether the group had cut its workforce, including a majority of the contractual as also the workers from contractors for various businesses, by up to 20,000 people so far this year.

  • However, some of the employees working with the conglomerate said that the cost-cutting is to the extent that a department head, who was used to having an army of people, has been asked to limit his sub-staff strength to just one and work on a shoe-string budget on cars, petrol, office boys, travel and entertainment.

  • Though there is no formal word on the exact staff downsizing that has taken place or what was the cost of severance, it is interesting to note that RIL's staff cost dropped over 10 per cent to Rs 588 crore in quarter ending September, 2008 from Rs 651 crore in the previous quarter.

90 ipos trade below issue price
90% IPOs trade below issue price 2008

  • NEWSWIRE18 New Delhi, 31 December With 38 of 42 initial public offers (IPOs) that were listed since January 1 trading below their issue price, primary market investors and India Inc never had it so bad. If the euphoria over the Reliance Power’s 260-million-share mega issue in January gave the impression that Dalal Street would kick off 2008 with a bang, the subsequent market meltdown and the global financial turmoil has ensured that the IPO market would end in a whimper instead.

  • Among 38 companies trading below the issue price, Mumbai-based engineering and construction company Niraj Cement Structurals is the worst performer. The stock ended on Tuesday at Rs 17.80 on the BSE, down 90.6 per cent from the issue price of Rs 190.

  • For the remaining 37 firms, 2008 has been no different. Stock of companies — Chemcel Biotech, First Winner Industries, Tulsi Extrusions, — are down over 80 per cent from their issue prices

Mfs get poorer by rs 1 50 000 crore
MFs get poorer by Rs 1,50,000 2008crore

  • PRESS TRUST OF INDIA New Delhi, 27 December For years, they used to be ameans of gains for investors in both good and bad times. But 2008 was different. Mutual funds became poorer by about Rs 1,50,000 crore, or about one-third of their total size this year.

  • Such has been the impact of these losses — which accounted for nearly three-fourths of the overall gains in 2007 —that investor confidence was shattered in just a few months of the downturn.

  • The mutual fund industry in India, with nearly 36 members, was regarded as a safe avenue of mutual gains for investors till 2007 — when their total wealth grew by more than Rs 2,30,000 crore to Rs 5,50,000 crore.

  • However, beginning early in 2008, wiped off close to Rs 1,50,000 crore this year, bringing its asset size to nearly Rs 4,00,000 crore and leaving the industry shattered with ahuge liquidity crunch.

  • S.P. Oswal, chairman, Vardhman Group, Ludhiana-based Rs 3000-crore textile giant says ‘ The textile industry is definitely hit by detrimental effect of slowdown. More so, because exports form 40 per cent of India's 55 billion dollar textile industry.

  • The orders are less and pressure of prices is far more, the retailers want the prices to be cut further. We have shut down our capacity from 7 to 10 per cent. The product lines where the orders are less are being shut down.

  • Never before in my 42 years in textile industry did I ever have to shut down our capacity because of a lack of orders. In the present circumstances, holding inventory is far more criminal and shutdown is an easier option’.

Shock and awe
SHOCK AND AWE job market.

  • Economic Times, 13 December 2008, SHOCK AND AWE



  • INDUSTRIAL production unexpectedly fell 0.4% in October, slipping into the negative territory for the first time in 15 years, The drop was on the back of a 1.2% year-on-year contraction in manufacturing activity,

  • Drop in demand in overseas and domestic markets. Manufacturing accounts fornearly 80% of the index of industrial production (IIP), which rose by a revised 5.5% in September.

  • “The situation is much graver than expected,” said Suresh Tendulkar, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council.

Negative returns
Negative returns job market.

  • Indian Express, 13 December 2008, Negative returns

  • The fall in industrial production in October 2008 is an indication of what sudden drying up of liquidity can do to production. For the first time in a decade output actually fell, rather than merely having a lower growth rate. October was a very difficult month with both big and small companies suddenly witnessing huge credit constraints.

  • With a slowdown in the world economy, the months ahead are going to be difficult and there is no room for complacency.

  • The tale of 21st century’s dinosaurs

  • Have you noticed how the mighty automobile industry in the US is beginning to sound like the now infamous tobacco industry at the time of its collapse, taking cover behind the people it employed to whitewash its inefficiency and perhaps its sheer inappropriateness?

  • The tobacco industry, in its last days of conviction, when it became clear that the science of toxicity of this leaf was real, hid behind farmers who grew it.

  • It argued (as it still does in India) that if cigarettes went out of favour, it would destroy the livelihood of thousands who toiled in the fields, as also its workers and ancillary infrastructure.

The tale of 21st century s dinosaurs1

  • Of course, nothing like that happened. The farmers switched to another crop.

  • Today, Detroit’s three big guys—General Motors (GM), Ford, Chrysler—are wrangling before the US Congress for a US $30 billion bailout.

  • And even though they face tough going to explain why they deserve this massive injection of funds, when they missed all the signs to reinvent their business towards fuel efficiency, influential senators have made it clear, “bankruptcy is not an option.”

Misreading the crisis

  • The Telegraph, 25 November 2008, MISREADING THE CRISIS

  • - Indian producers are running into losses and out of cash Ashok V. Desai

  • The prime minister has much to think about. So he leaves management of the economy to his finance minister. But he reads newspapers, and travels round the world; the developing global crisis could not escape him forever. He first took cognizance of it while he was in Paris for the Indo-European Union summit at the end of September.

Misreading the crisis1

  • What he said then was lifted almost verbatim out of P. Chidambaram’s catechism: “The Indian economy has grown at an average rate of 9 per cent in the past four years. It is expected to slow down in 2008-09 reflecting the slow down in the global economy. Even so,it will grow between 7.5-8 per cent. More importantly our medium term prospects remain strong based on sound fundamentals. We have weathered the current credit crisis facing the global banking and financial sectors. Our savings rate is touching 35 per cent. Our direct tax collections for the first five months of the current financial year grew by 48 per cent compared to last year. India would, therefore, continue to provide a stable platform for businessmen and investors.”

Misreading the crisis2

  • He was saying that he believed the “slowdown” in India was imported. Figures of industrial growth produced by his own statistical office were showing a slowdown from March 2007 onwards, much before the global crisis; but he either missed them or accepted Chidambaram’s belief that they were hocus-pocus. He had blind faith in high growth being India’s privilege and prerogative. He thought that a high ratio of savings to national income in 2006-07 could ensure high growth in 2008-09; he forgot what Keynes taught: savings are income that is not spent; they actually reduce aggregate demand if they are not matched by investment.

No recession here says chidambaram economy will rebound by middle of next year
NO RECESSION HERE, SAYS CHIDAMBARAM job market.Economy will rebound by middle of next year

  • Economic Times, 25 November 2008,

  • INDIA’S economic growth will rebound by the middle of next year, after expanding at a slightly slower pace this financial year, because of the ripple effects of various stresses in the global economy, finance minister P Chidambaram said. Although the government has already forgone revenue worth Rs 31,000 crore through tax cuts, it is open to doing more to stimulate the economy if needed, the minister told an annual conference of economic editors here on Monday.

  • Yes its true. We wasted the Opportunity. Government allowed, participated in creation of bubble. Did not created sustaining capacity to maintain 8+ % growth. Neglected infrastructure. Went into short term benefits. Our Finance Minister was busy with Sensex. Mr Prime Minister December 2009 is negative. Please accept the facts & stop talking about 9% growth

  • We are moving from inflation to deflation. Millions are going to loose jobs. Small & Big. Construction worker to IT Engineer. Its crisis of confidence. Congress- UPA government owes explanation to the country
