Representational image. threatening to throttle a nascent economic recovery.Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made repairing bank balance sheets his administration’s "top-most priority" a senior government official said "Banks have been very reluctant to take a haircut where they face newspaper criticism" said a second senior official who is familiar with discussions on the panel He declined to be named because he was not authorised to speak to the media The second official added that the proposal had run into hurdles already however amid questions over how it would fit into India’s existing legal framework A finance ministry spokesman declined to comment The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the proposal Fear of bad headlines was one reason why state-run banks declined to consider embattled tycoon Vijay Mallya’s offer to pay up to $900 million in tranches to settle about $14 billion his defunct Kingfisher Airlines owed two banking sources said Mallya now also faces a money laundering investigation Mallya told the Financial Times late last month that he wanted a "reasonable" settlement that he could afford and banks could justify He has denied any wrongdoing Bad loans have piled up as subdued consumer demand hits corporate earnings making it harder for big businesses to repay loans Gaping capital hole The RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has set a deadline of March 2017 for banks to clean up their books and the government said it would inject $11 billion in state banks by March 2019 to help them repair their balance sheets India Ratings and Research a local affiliate of Fitch has said the government would have to cough up as much as $45 billion if the lenders failed to raise funds from markets to address expected future capital shortfalls Negotiated settlements in which a bank takes a writedown on a loan gone bad can help speed up the process They would allow banks to more quickly establish how much money they would need to bolster their balance sheets All state lenders including State Bank of India (SBI) the largest are trading at a steep discount to their book values Healthier institutions would be able to raise money from the market reducing the burden on taxpayers Several finance ministry officials said stake sales were more likely once valuations of state-run banks improved Mahesh Patil co-chief investment officer at Birla Sun Life Asset Management Co said an independent panel for deciding haircuts on non-performing assets would accelerate decision making and help banks focus on their core lending business "As long as these issues are there a lot of attention goes in terms of addressing the NPAs" Patil said "The decision-making will be much better under an independent panel" Panel proposal The proposal envisages setting up a panel comprising leading bankers and government and central bank officials to review some larger outstanding loans and try to arrive at a settlement finance ministry and central bank officials said There is also a suggestion to include judges they added The idea was first floated in 2014 after Modi took office but did not gain much traction then one of the finance ministry officials said It resurfaced at a two-day bankers’ retreat in March where lenders saw it as a way of giving them some kind of insurance while breaking the logjam on bad loans one of the central bank officials said Banks are trying other means to reduce non-performing loans In March for example SBI asked industrialist Naveen Jindal’s Jindal Steel and Power (JNSPNS) to speed up a deal to sell a power plant to JSW Energy (JSWENS) run by his elder brother Sajjan to pare debt several sources familiar with the matter said The deal was announced on Wednesday The feeding frenzy over Narendra Modi’s acknowledgement of his marriage to Jashodaben more than four-and-a-half decades ago is truly pathetic From foot-in-mouth Digvijaya Singh to the seemingly saintly Rahul Gandhi and now to Kapil Sibal whose has filed a complaint with the Election Commission the Congress party has latched on to a non-issue as though this is going to save it the blushes on 16 May "He has not informed the country about this fact” said the hero of 2G "Zero-loss” Sibal Nor has Sonia Gandhi informed the country about her foreign travels or what is the illness she is suffering from In the US these are matters of intense scrutiny but for Sibal only Modi is worth scrutinising — and that too about something that is none of his business Narendra Modi AFP When you descend to such low-level attacks on your main rival it is an admission of defeat It is also an invitation to take the election fight to a personal level Only innocents can get hurt in this mud-slinging Already twitter is abuzz with talk of Nehru’s tryst with Edwina Mountbatten Rahul Gandhi’s alleged love life Shashi Tharoor’s third wife’s mysterious death in a Delhi Manmohan Singh’s alleged failure to declare his marital status while seeking a Rajya Sabha seat from Assam Azam Khan’s wives et al It can’t get any worse than this But it is also worth looking at the issues raised by Modi’s late declaration of his marital status to see whether it actually warrants any kind of scrutiny at all First Modi only appears to have left his marital status blank in earlier election affidavits in Gujarat This does not amount to any intention to lie at all Just a refusal to talk about it A candidate’s marital status is not an essential qualification for voting for him or her It ought to be an optional item of information to be provided by a candidate The only reason why it even ought to be there in the nomination form is if some wealth is held jointly by husband and wife – which has to be declared Age is relevant since there is a minimum age qualification of candidates But not gender or marital status or sexual orientation Does it matter if you are a transgender or a hermaphrodite Sure there may be some legal issue about not declaring something — but it is a technocality not something for us to get apoplectic about Second in this day and age marital status is less important than actual relationships When a French President can qualify for the highest job in his country with just a companion – who anyway is now out of favour with him – whether or not you have a spouse is irrelevant What matters is what close relationships you are in that are similar to spousal relationships In India there is no lack of powerful political personalities who not only have two spouses but also several girlfriends and paramours If we start getting into these issues we will sink to new lows And it will make no difference to the quality of our governance Third one can raise legitimate questions about how Modi handled his relationship with his wife who he has never lived with But it is no more relevant that asking how Nehru may have treated his wife Kamala Gandhi his Kasturba etc If we go further back into history one of the noblest sons of India the Buddha had deserted his wife and family in his search for enlightenment This is not to compare Modi with the Buddha but to point out that the decisions human being take in their lives are to be judged in their own moral context It is not something for modern-day feminists or political trouble-mongers to work up a lather over The truth behind Modi’s separation from Jashodaben is their business If they have chosen not to discuss it or bitch about it in public it is none of our business – not even the women’s groups Fourth this relationship is completely irrelevant to the electoral issues at hand – just as Atal Behari Vajpayee’s relationship with his alleged woman friend or M Karunanidhi’s two wives or what Rahul Gandhi does in his spare time Private lives have to remain private – unless they have a relevance to the public in some way It is for those raising the Jasodhaben issue to justify their decision to stoop so low Fifth the media too does not need to have an opinion on a politician’s private life If the media was willing to let Shashi Tharoor’s relationship with Sunanda and her death in a Delhi hotel remain a private affair one wonders how Modi’s mere declaration of his marital status is suddenly such a big issue There are things we must leave alone — and this is one of them Are you listening Rahul Toronto: Canadians voted for a sharp change in their government on Monday returning a legendary name for liberals Trudeau to the prime minister’s office and resoundingly ending Conservative Stephen Harper’s near-decade in office Justin Trudeau the son of late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau became Canada’s new prime minister after his Liberal Party won a majority of Parliament’s 338 seats Trudeau’s Liberals had been favored to win the most seats but few expected the final margin of victory Trudeau tall and trim at 43 channels the star power — if not quite the political heft — of his father who swept to power in 1968 on a wave of support dubbed "Trudeaumania" Pierre Trudeau who was prime minister until 1984 with a short interruption remains one of the few Canadian politicians known in America his charisma often drawing comparisons to John F Kennedy Canadian Liberal leader Justin Trudeau (center) clowns around with campaign team members Image courtesy: AP Justin Trudeau a former school teacher and member of Parliament since 2008 becomes the second youngest prime minister in Canadian history Trudeau has re-energized the Liberal Party since its worst electoral defeat four years ago when they won just 34 seats and finished third behind the traditionally weaker New Democrat Party Trudeau promises to raise taxes on the rich and run deficits for three years to boost government spending His late father who took office in 1968 and led Canada for most of the next 16 years is a storied name in Canadian history responsible for the country’s version of the bill of rights A bachelor when he became prime minister Pierre Trudeau dated actresses Barbra Streisand and Kim Cattrall and married a 22-year-old while in office "We have a chance to bring real change to Canada and bring an end to the Harper decade" Trudeau said Sunday in Harper’s adopted home province of Alberta traditionally a Conservative stronghold Canada has shifted to the center-right under Harper who has lowered sales and corporate taxes avoided climate change legislation and clashed with the Obama administration over the Keystone XL pipeline The Trudeau victory will ease tensions with the US Although Trudeau supports the Keystone pipeline he argues relations should not hinge on the project Harper has clashed with the Obama administration over other issues including the recently reached Iran nuclear deal Trudeau’s opponents pilloried him as too inexperienced but Trudeau embraced his boyish image on Election Day Sporting jeans and a varsity letter jacket he posed for a photo standing on the thighs of two his colleagues to make a cheerleading pyramid his campaign plane in the backdrop with "Trudeau 2015" painted in large red letters "A sea of change here We are used to high tides in Atlantic Canada This is not what we hoped for" said Peter MacKay a former senior Conservative cabinet minister shortly after polls closed in Atlantic Canada The Liberals were elected or were leading in 185 districts with Trudeau winning his Montreal district The party needed 170 to gain a majority The Conservatives were next with 97 followed by the New Democrats at 28 and Bloc Quebecois with nine Harper 56 visited districts he won in the 2011 election in an attempt to hang onto them On Saturday he posed with Toronto’s former crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford in a conservative suburb Harper had said he would step down if his party didn’t win the most seats Former colleagues of Harper said he would be personally devastated to lose to a Trudeau the liberal legacy he entered politics to destroy Harper’s long-term goal was to kill the widely entrenched notion that the Liberals — the party of Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien — are the natural party of government in Canada and to redefine what it means to be Canadian Hurt when Canada entered a mild recession earlier this year Harper made a controversy over the Islamic face veil a focus of his campaign a decision his opponents seized on to depict him as a divisive leader "Canadians rejected the politics of fear and division" New Democratic Party leader Tom Mulcair said of the Harper Conservatives Nelson Wiseman a political science professor at the University of Toronto said Canadians rallied around the Liberals as the anti-Harper vote The New Democrats suffered a crushing defeat falling to third place after winning official opposition status in the last election "I congratulated Mr Trudeau on his exceptional achievement" Mulcair said AP valiant during some high-quality and high-paced
