'Time to make growth job-oriented, sustainable'

Assocham President Sunil Kanoria has hailed India's emergence as the fastest growing major economy in the world with the GDP expanding by 7.6 per cent, and said it was time to build on the gains and boost private investment which will be a big catalyst for job creation and achieving the ultimate objective of sustainable growth.

“At 7.6 per cent, India's GDP growth rate for FY16 is at a 5-year high. This is good news and firmly puts India as the world's fastest growing major economy. However, the sustainability of this growth momentum will certainly depend on how well and how fast government can help revive the investment, especially in the private sector” Kanoria said.

According to an Assocham press release, Kanoria, who is also the Vice Chairman of Srei Infrastructure Finance Ltd, said the government focus on investing in the physical and social infrastructure did have a decisive impact on the GDP growth. However, it is the large scale private investment which would bring in vibrancy in the economy which has the potential to grow well over eight per cent within the current financial year itself.

“But for that to happen, an all – out efforts must be made by the Finance Ministry, Reserve Bank of India to work closely with the banks to resolve the problem of the large scale non-performing assets, taking a pragmatic view of the difficult situations that the corporates across different sectors like steel, power and construction, have run into”.

He said, once the private investment picks up, that would be reflected in the better ratio of the Gross Fixed Capital Formation (GFCF) to GDP. This ratio has been shrinking for the fourth successive year, while the country's GDP continues to grow.

“The success of the 'Make in India' initiative hinges on some key reforms. In this context, introducing the Bankruptcy Code and getting it passed by both the Houses of the Parliament is a big step forward. Now we need its quick implementation as that would help resuscitate a lot of stuck projects and unlock capital. The government also needs to expedite the rolling out of the Goods and Services Tax by building political consensus. This is something which will greatly help in improving the investment climate. It would also send out a very strong signal to the foreign investors establishing this government's pro-reform credentials”. Kanoria said.

He hoped that a good monsoon combined with the steps announced in the Union Budget for rural development will provide a further spurt to the rural economy.

He also urged the Centre to collaborate with state governments to improve the 'ease of doing business' so that more entrepreneurs can be groomed.

“For a country like ours where almost a million gets added to the workforce every month, creation of job creators is imperative” Kanoria said. (SH)
