Lalbaucha Raja – this year with devotees offering over Rs one lakh in demonetised currency to the Lord Of the around Rs 6 crore which the popular Lalbaucha Raja in Parel received from devotees during the just concluded Ganesh festival there were 105 notes of the scrapped Rs 1000 denomination in the donation box “Of the 105 notes one was torn There were also 50 notes of the scrapped Rs 500 denomination” an official from the state Charity Commissioner’s office said “So far the total donation received is Rs 59314800” the official said “We are yet to count foreign currency received in the donation box and also the new currency ‘garlands’ offered to the deity” the official said The quantum of donation this year was less compared to the around Rs 8 crore received last year This year’s collection also included gold and silver The official cited heavy rains which lashed Mumbai on August 29 and led to flooding and disruption in transport services as a key reason for the low donation

Policies that distort costs on inputs and thereby distort resource allocation and input choices are undesirable Related News Employment and unemployment figures still come from the 68th round of the NSS (National Sample Survey) that is 2011-12 The NSS has different ways of defining and measuring employment and workforce — usual status current daily status and current weekly status It doesn’t matter which is used Two conclusions are obvious First especially among women work participation rates are low — for instance World Bank data show an Indian female work participation rate of 27 compared to 64 in China; and second not only does low growth mean low employment generation but even when growth picks up jobs don’t seem to be created For instance one can compare the employment elasticity of growth between 1999-2000 and 2004-05 with a decline in that elasticity thereafter While growth is necessary to create jobs growth alone will presumably not solve the problem Why is the employment elasticity of growth low subject to the qualification that this also depends on the composition of growth A standard answer has been labour laws especially in the organised sector Both expressions “labour laws” and the “unorganised sector” should be used with caution There are 50-plus Union-level statutes that directly have something to do with labour There are also many state-level rules A standard definition of “organised” is the application of the Factories Act But there aren’t two neat binary worlds of organised and unorganised Some of those 50-plus labour laws also apply to the unorganised sector and there are informal contracts within the organised sector With that Factories Act definition the Economic Survey tells us employment in the organised sector (in 2012) is 296 million 12 million private and the rest public There is an entirely valid argument that labour laws in the organised sector are rigid thereby stimulating artificial capital intensity By this statement one usually means statutes on industrial relations — the Industrial Disputes Act (IDA) the Contract Labour Act and the Trade Unions Act — though it can also mean compliance costs associated with the so-called inspector raj which is pertinent too for other statutes and occasionally applies to the unorganised sector Assuming labour and capital can be substituted in relative price comparisons between labour and capital this increases costs of labour interpreted as more than narrow wage costs What has happened to that cost of labour post-1991 I mean the absolute cost not the relative one Sure there are occasional complaints about upward wage pressures lack of skills and labour shortages (reflected in higher wages) But I suspect these are still sector-specific and region-specific complaints (Illustration by: C R Sasikumar) Still compliance costs associated with labour laws should also have declined Several states have simpler procedures now and the implementation of labour laws is mostly a state subject The Union government has introduced elements like self-certification and the unification of forms Within the IDA permissions are more readily available When were labour laws tightened If you are obsessed with the IDA you will probably pick 1976 (when Chapter V-B was introduced) or 1982-84 (when the threshold of Chapter V-B was changed) Nineteen seventy six or 1982-84 certainly introduced rigidities and those rigidities need relaxing But has that rigidity become worse post-1991 Not necessarily A capital/ labour choice is based on relative costs of inputs not just absolute costs of labour With the old GDP series high growth years were roughly between 2003-04 and 2007-09 One explanation for high growth is the reduced cost of capital however defined — import duties external commercial borrowings domestic costs of debt and equity Thus the absolute cost of capital declined reduced the relative cost of capital pushed up the relative cost of labour and drove further capital intensity However there is a more interesting question Do labour laws alone distort resource allocation Consider policies on capital The budget papers have a revenue foregone statement In 2014-15 aggregate tax exemptions divided into various categories amounted to Rs 486452 crore There are direct tax exemption components for the corporate sector and unincorporated enterprises If you scrutinise these you will find several for the use of capital There are instances from indirect tax exemptions too What else is stuff like accelerated depreciation Can you think of a single incentive linked to the use of labour Other than tax exemptions being undesirable on other counts this too distorts choice across inputs I can also throw in incentives not necessarily fiscal on the use of land Why should we be surprised at low employment elasticity Take the definition of MSME (micro small and medium enterprises) Whether manufacturing or services this is completely based on investments that is capital It has nothing to do with labour or employment While the growth theory has evolved and often has human capital built into it the popular discourse is often based on Harrod-Domar If the investment rate is 32 per cent and the Icor (incremental capital/ output ratio) is 5 you will get a growth rate of 64 per cent and so on How many times have you seen a discussion that says what the growth rate will be if the female work participation rate increases Or alternatively what it will be if mortality and morbidity indicators or skill indicators improve I wonder if this occurs because the roots of the discourse originate in countries that possess a different set of relative factor endowments It is a plausible proposition But my limited point is that in discussing the low employment elasticity of growth let us not look only at labour market policies A factor input choice to the extent inputs are substitutable is a function of relative prices Policies that distort costs on inputs and thereby distort resource allocation and input choices are undesirable Just as they are undesirable for labour they are undesirable for capital and land too But oddly enough the capital distortion argument is not articulated as much as the labour distortion one If incentives are to be used let us encourage the use of the input India is relatively better endowed with not the one India is
