Raj from 1950 to 1980 (NehruIndira Gandhi 1) The reversal of these failed policies in the 1980s (IG2Rajiv Gandhi) almost doubled the per capita growth rate to 3 per cent This was further raised to about 5 per cent (1992 to 2012) by the reforms of the 1990s (Narasimha RaoAtal Bihari Vajpayee) The decline of per capita growth to 2 per cent in 2012-13 has come as a shock to the youth who have grown up in the decade of 6 per cent average growth The media exposure of high-level corruption at the Centre and pervasive governance failure across the country has heightened the outrage against the government for depriving them of this new hope of a bright future There is also a perception that the decline in growth is due partly to the indifference of the ruling party and its ministers to the role of economic growth in creating opportunities for allincluding the generation of revenues so essential for enhancing opportunities for the poor through the supply of public goods (public healthbasic education and employable skills) For instancedespite decades of talk about supply bottlenecks in infrastructurelack of productivity in agricultureleakages in PDS-FCI and abysmal sewage systemsthere is little public evidence that state and Central ministers responsible for the areas critical to growth and opportunity are applying their minds and efforts to solving them Dont people in a democracy have a right to good governance Perhaps we need a Right to Growth and Good Governance Act to ensure that government at every level from the ASHA worker or primary worker in the village to the humblest babu in the Block officeto the collector or magistrate at the district levelto the chief secretary of the state and all politicians holding office in state governments or autonomous bodies can be held accountable for economic growth The Chinese experience suggests that this could be an effective way of achieving sustained development and faster poverty reductions Since 1980when the Communist Party of China (CPC) instituted market reformsChina has had an average per capita growth of 88 per centdouble the 43 per cent average achieved by India One of the major factors has been its primary focus on economic growth for enhancing national welfare The objective of maximising economic growth has helped in achieving an effective governance system that is highly decentralised in operation while maintaining the unchallenged authority of the general secretary and the top organs of the party The basic objective of growth maximisation filters down not only to every level of government and partybut also to every stateprovincial and party-related enterprise Within this overall objectiveparty cadresgovernment officials and enterprise managers are relatively free to experiment on the means to achieve faster growth More importantlythey are effectively rewarded for achieving growth targets The intensity with which local officials compete to attract investment and the red carpet they lay out for FDI is apparent to anyone who has visited an enterprise zone in China At its higher levelsthe party continues to provide overall guidance on the broad directions of growth For instancethe growth objective was achieved by incentivising overseas Chinese entrepreneurs to shift their entire labour-intensive export manufacturing facilities to special zones in China When this opportunity was exhaustedthey turned their attention to more sophisticated FDI from developed countries When export opportunities in developed countries appeared to flag and the Asian crisis struckthe higher-level direction changed to using infrastructure investment and import substitution of the export supply chain to sustain high growth Thusthe use of growth achievement to measure the performance of party members and bureaucratsand to reward them appropriately through promotion and economic opportunities for their family membershas allowed them to develop a unique blend of centralisation and decentralisation that has sustained growth for a historically unprecedented 30 years Though it is impossible to replicate the CPC-controlled Chinese system in a democratic countrywe can and should give much greater importance to the growth objectiveand also use it to reward bureaucratic functionaries to promote good governance All public authorities responsible for
