Focus on self-certification and third party inspection

Dr. Arvind Mayaram’s address at the Madras Chamber of Commerce and Industry was significant in the light of the interest of the government to reduce the plethora of inspections: the Centre will request states to introduce self-certification and third party inspection, he said. The bureaucracy simply cannot cope with the volume of work involved in inspecting and ensuring compliance. He suggested the industry should reciprocate with compliance. This is in line with Prime Minster Modi’s oft-repeated focus on less government and more governance.

The secretary pointed to the improvement in the economy like the fiscal deficit kept well within target, leading to a reduction in public borrowing by Rs 8000 crore from the target set for the current year. There has been a drop in food inflation and good prospects for a higher rate of growth in the current coming year. His reference to the vast reduction in gold imports evoked interest: “we had to take drastic steps like stringent controls on gold imports. These dropped from $ 60 billion to $21 billion in just a year helping to reduce the current account deficit from over 4 per cent of GDP to 2.5 per cent of GDP!”
