When more sensible auditing is doneit will become clear that the loss was nowhere near the Rs 176000 crores that CAG came up with but because the Prime Minister refused to defend his government at the outsetthe governments personal auditor took to making all his reports public on national television His reports have all contained statistics that are as fanciful as the ones he produced for the 2G scam but not once has the Prime Minister spoken up On the supposed windfall given to private companies in the sale of coal assetsthe figures are not just untrue but hilarious as has been ably pointed out in this newspaper by Surjit Bhalla Butthe Prime Minister said nothing If he had dared to speak up from the startwe may not have reached this low point His silence has been interpreted by everyone from government auditors and judges to social activists as a sign of such weakness that they have taken to dictating government policies It is not the business of social activists and judges to make policy but they have felt emboldened to do this because of the Prime Ministers mysterious silences Last week we finally heard Dr Manmohan Singh speak up when Annas teammatesthose ultimate paragons of probitycharged him with being personally corrupt Andeven then what we heard from the Prime Minister was not an angry rebuttal but a sadlittle whine He offered to resign from public life if the charges against him could be proved These are not the words of a leader but the words of a defendant in the dock What India has neededtime and time again since 2009was a leader and at no stage has the Prime Minister shown that he is that leader In his last term in office we saw a very different man Someone who stood up for what he believed was right for India and risked the fall of his government rather than succumb to communist blackmail over the nuclear deal he signed with the United States Where did that man go What happened in 2009 that forced the Prime Minister to behave more and more like the backroom bureaucrat he once used to be Was he told that he was only a stopgap for someone else Was he told he must avoid being too much of a leader The questions have become irrelevant today because the damage has been done and is probably irreversible It is only a matter of time before we slide back into that socialist era when officials controlled the Indian economyprivate enterprise was considered a crime and everything from milk and bread to gas cylinders and telephones were always in short supply When this happens the man who will be held responsible will be the Prime Minister because it is his fault The political lesson that can be learned from the celebrated rise and ignominious fall of Dr Manmohan Singh is that India cannot be led by prime ministers who are prime

into the e-mail address of its MD and conned an official into making a payment Prompt action on part of the officials however ensured the firm could block the payment just in time inspite of the money having been transferred A case of cheating has been registered According to the police the incident took place on May 18 when Dilip Golwala (58) the accounts manager of the company that deals in food supply received an e-mail from his managing director The ‘MD’ asked him if he was in office since a money transfer had to be made Golwala was aware that his superior had gone to the US on May 14 and did not suspect anything amiss He was used to such requests since he was the authorised signatory for such transactions An hour after he informed the ‘MD’ that he was in office and could complete the transaction he was asked to initiate an urgent RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) transaction of Rs 5 lakh towards one ‘Uniq enterprises’ the police said The MD told Golwala the transaction was urgent and had to be completed before the end of the day Golwala then asked for the relevant details and contacted the bank to transfer Rs 5 lakh to the account Fortunately for the company said the police their MD used two official e-mail addresses When Golwala sent an e-mail saying that he had made the transfer he marked both e-mail addresses While police suspect the e-mail address used to communicate with Golwala had been hacked the other e-mail address was not When the actual MD saw the e-mail he immediately called up Golwala The duo then realised there had been a fraud and Golwala immediately asked the bank to cancel the transfer he had asked for The next day Golwala again received an e-mail from the hacked account The person again pretending to be the MD told him that while the Rs 5 lakh had been transferred Uniq Enterprises could not withdraw the amount Golwala did not reply to that e-mail Later the company officials approached the local NM Joshi Marg police station where they

Delhi Jal Board will struggle to implement the AAP’s water policy The inhabitants of Delhi are to be pitied — water availability and management in the city are in a shambles Decades of mismanagement have turned the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) into an overstaffed and inefficient institution which often does not have enough qualified personnel to achieve the tasks entrusted to it The last chief minister’s constant complaint was that the DJB had 20000 “unsackable” employees but she did not make any attempt to restructure it The DJB continues to have no long-term vision no sound planning or implementation capacity It has a revolving set of CEOs mostly IAS officers with no knowledge of or expertise on how to run a large and complex utility The average stint of a DJB CEO is around three years They are never held accountable for the running of the DJB unless it is for corruption Delhi’s water management has shown a steady deterioration over the decades In 1960 Delhi and Singapore had similar water and wastewater management services By 1985 Singapore had become one of the best cases of urban water management and Delhi’s service delivery had worsened Just when many Delhi residents thought water services could not get any worse the Aam Aadmi Party made an entrance Its new diktat means that over the next few years water services for the city as a whole can only worsen The AAP’s water policy was well known before it came to power When Arvind Kejriwal broke his 15-day fast against high water and power bills last April he announced that “up to 20000 litres of free water for all will be available when the AAP comes to power in November” The AAP’s policy appears to have been influenced by the South African experience It uses some of the terms that could be found in the South African law that was passed in 1990 including “lifeline water” But there are many differences between Delhi and South Africa The South African law stipulated 6000 litres of free basic water per household that is 25 litres per person per day In addition utilities like Rand Water which supplies water to cities like Johannesburg are light years ahead of the DJB in terms of efficiency management practices and the quality of service delivery Even then millions of poor South Africans still go without their 20 litres of free clean water Let us examine the implementation aspects of 20000 litres of free water per household It means each household will receive about 670 litres of free water per day First we need to consider how much water is lost in the Delhi system because of losses leakages and unauthorised connections mainly facilitated by the corrupt practices of DJB staff Sadly the DJB has no clue about how much water it loses We estimate that its current losses are 45-55 per cent In contrast Tokyo loses about 37 per cent Las Vegas 4 per cent Singapore 5 per cent and Phnom Penh 65 per cent Assuming the losses are around 50 per cent the DJB needs to pump 1005 litres of water into its system daily so that after losses each household receives 670 litres A simple calculation will show that Delhi does not have enough water supply to meet the demands of this scheme It will entail more inter-state water transfer to Delhi Realistically this is not likely to happen Second consider the quality of water that is supplied by the DJB The overall perception is that it has steadily declined over the years Some 20 years ago average Delhi households used simple carbon filters to treat their water before drinking This is no longer enough Households are now mostly using membranes and reverse osmosis at significant cost so that water can be safely drunk Third many of the poor in Delhi live in squatter settlements on lands that are illegally occupied There is a reluctance to provide them with services like water because such connections may give them land rights Without metered connections there is no way the AAP can provide them with their share of free water Fourth nearly all the water that comes to a household is returned later as wastewater With increased water consumption many parts of Delhi do not have enough sewer capacity to drain away the wastewater Also Delhi’s current wastewater treatment is a national disgrace How will it handle the extra wastewater Finally the only way Delhi can pay for free water is through taxes and revenue transfers If the DJB were a private institution and had to account for all costs for water and wastewater provisioning as in Singapore it would emerge as a loss-making institution The so-called profits of the DJB are more accounting tricks than real gains The experience from all over India shows that there is strong political pressure to provide free water and limit tariff increases This translates into an income squeeze leading to insufficient investment and under-maintenance The AAP’s water policy could prove to be a medium- to long-term disaster for Delhi It could be said the AAP’s heart is in the right place though its policies are not But that is a most dangerous combination Asit K Biswas The is distinguished visiting professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy Singapore and co-founder of
