RE: DEMAND TO BAN FILM DA VINCI CODE

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK (GOA): Sir, Da Vince Code is one of the most controversial films, which is sought to be exhibited in this country. The feelings of minority Christian community are hurt by this move. Actually the hon. Minister has said that whatever representation has been received by the Government that has been handed over to the Censor Board for a proper decision. But the Censor Board' Chairperson Mrs. Sharmila Tagore has already decided on her own that it will not be banned. This is not proper. The Government has advised that the documents should be sought, reviewed and a decision has to be taken. Secondly, the question is ....(Interruptions)... The Government is also an authority over and above the Censor Board. It is provided in the statute. Therefore, the Government cannot leave this matter exclusively to the Censor Board. If the Censor Board does not react to such things, the Government can intervene. (Contd by 1P)

RE. EXPLOSIVES SEIZED IN IMPORTANT CITIES OF MAHARASHTRA

 

SHRI MANOHAR JOSHI (MAHARASHTRA): Sir, I want to draw the attention of the Government on a very important issue. Sir, the issue is, in the last two weeks in the State of Maharashtra, lot of RDX is found in three important cities of Maharashtra. Firstly, it was found in Aurangabad. Then, it was found in Manmad. Now, recently, three days back about 12 kilograms of RDX were found in another city, Malegaon. Sir, this chain of finding out RDX, AK-47 rifles and grenades has worried everybody who stays in the State of Maharashtra. These are the terrorists who were hiding this RDX. They were found out by the expert police of Maharasthra. Sir, it has not remained there. Unfortunately, those people who are arrested, their names are Mohammed Amir Ahmed, Muzzafar Ahmed, Syed Zubair and Abdul Azmi. It is said that there are more people who are in the business of keeping RDX and there is every possibility that such explosives may be found in other cities of the State of Maharashtra. Sir, it seems that the whole of Maharashtra has become the godown of explosives. This has been brought by the terrorists and it is also suspected that these terrorists are supported by Pakistan. (Contd. by NBR/1Q)

-SSS/NBR-AKG/1Q/12.15.

SHRI MANOHAR JOSHI (CONTD.): How long are we going to tolerate this? The Director General of Police has made a statement that there may be more people and more RDX could be found in other parts of the State. My only worry is, in 1993, only 27 kgs. of RDX was enough in Mumbai to kill 400 people. So, you can just imagine that with 50 kgs. of RDX found there is every danger to the lives of the citizens of different cities. I want the Government to take notice of this and to take immediate action and also to support police personnel, provide additional force if necessary. The Maharashtra Police, which did an excellent job, should also be appreciated. So, Sir, this is what I wanted to request and bring to the notice of the House that the State of Maharashtra is facing a great problem. Thank you. (Ends)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now, let us take up Legislative Business. First, the Reserve Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2006. Shri Pawan Kumar Bansal.

THE RESERVE BANK OF INDIA (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2006

THE MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE (SHRI PAWAN KUMAR BANSAL): Sir, I beg to move:

That the Bill further to amend the

Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934, as passed by Lok Sabha, be taken into consideration.

 

Sir, the Bill was initially introduced in the Lok Sabha on 13th May, 2005, to amend the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934, inter alia, to:

1.     define the expressions, 'derivative', 'repo' and 'reverse repo';

 

2.     to empower the RBI to deal in derivatives, to lend or borrow securities and to undertake repo or reverse repo;

 

3.     remove the lower floor and upper ceiling of Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and to provide flexibility to RBI to specify CRR;

 

4.     remove ambiguity regarding the legal validity of derivatives;

 

5.     empower RBI to lay down policy and issue directions to any agency dealing in various kinds of contracts in respect of Government securities, money-market instruments, derivatives, etc., and the inspect such agencies.

 

Sir, after the initial introduction of the Bill, the Bill was referred to the Standing Committee on Finance. The Standing Committee deliberated on the provisions of the Bill at length and made certain valuable suggestions. Respecting those suggestions, the Government decided to change the definitions of the terms 'repo' and 'reverse repo' in the perspective of the market. And, I would not take the time of the hon. House at this moment to refer to those suggestions made by the Standing Committee on Finance. But, those definitions, as such, were moved, subsequently, as amendments to the Bill and have been accepted by the Lok Sabha yesterday.

Sir, the Indian economy, as we all know, is growing at a fast rate and is much larger today than it was ever before. There are developments in the financial sector which could not be anticipated in the year 1934 when the RBI Act was enacted. But, they are a fact of life today. And, in a changing, moving and a dynamic society as it is, with the market becoming so important, it has become important that certain regulators, including the RBI, are strengthened and, keeping in view certain tings like volatility of foreign exchange, it is necessary that the RBI is given certain powers to act quickly on certain matters, though there is a High-Powered Committee, which meets to exchange information and to work on the various policy matters. Keeping those things in view, this amendment has been introduced.

I, with these few words, would commend the Bill to the House to kindly consider this and pass it. (Ends)

PK/1T/12.30

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY (KARNATAKA): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, I thank you very much for having given me this opportunity. This Bill should have come earlier. I thank the Government for bringing this Bill thereby amending the Reserve Bank of India (Amendment) Act, 2005. This Bill, before it was introduced, was referred to the Standing Committee. The Standing Committee received representations from different organisations including the bank federations and also other organisations which are concerned with the development of the economy. Now, I don't want to go in detail into the provisions of the Bill as they have been enunciated in the Objectives and also in the relevant section. But what will happen if there is more liquidity in the country, and, then, whether we have to control it. Sir, when the Reserve Bank of India Act was enacted in the year 1934-35, the main objective was to formulate, implement and monitor the monetary policy-- please underline the words, monetary policy--; then, to prescribe broad parameters of banking operations within which the country's banking and financial system functions; then, manages the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999; then, issues and exchanges or destroys currency and coins not fit for circulation. In addition to that, the Reserve Bank performs a wide range of promotional functions to support developmental objectives. If the country has to develop, the role of the Reserve Bank should be implemented effectively; otherwise, what will happen to the economy? The hon. Minister has stated already that the economy is moving at a very faster rate, faster than China's economy. That is the reality which is prevailing in the country today. When the situation is like that, whether we should authorise the Reserve Bank with more powers to control the monetary system. Sir, what is happening now? I am not criticising the Government, but the reality is that inflation is going up, even though statistics show that it is coming down. If you ask a housewife who goes to market and purchases the essential commodities, she will say that prices have gone up. When the fact is like that, what have we to do? If the money is available at the hands of the traders, if the liquidity is more -- you don't curtail it -- what will happen? That is why the Government has to look into the CRR ratio also. For that purpose, flexibility is required. It is true. Now the question is, if more money is available in the market, particularly, in the hands of the people who are dealing with the essential commodities, then, they will hoard it. Money is available. If the hoarding takes place, then, Sir, ultimately, it will result in increase in the prices.

(Contd. by 1U/PB)

PB/1U/12.35

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY (CONTD.): So, supply and demand position will also be affected. So, my submission to the Government is, we have to take an immediate action in this regard. If more liquidity is available, then you will not be in a position to control the economy and you will not be in a position to control the prices. That is why, Sir, this provision has been made, and it is going to help. It is going to empower the Reserve Bank of India to examine periodically whether the liquidity that is prevailing at a given time should be controlled or not. That is the main purpose.

Then, Sir, the other thing that I just bring to your notice is, yes; you have got a lot of foreign exchange. Agreed. But the question is, whether with this foreign exchange, we are investing or whether we are going to have it in our godowns or in the Reserve Bank of India. I am sorry to use the word 'godown'. Sir, my submission would be that this foreign exchange, which is accumulated in India, has to be used for the development of the nation. Unless we do it, I don't think the liquidity that is available and the money that is available in the Indian economy are going to be of help in the development of the nation.

Sir, now, if there is deficit in the Budget, that means, if the deficit is larger, then some people say, 'No, the Indian economy is in a very bad shape; you are going to kill the economy.' No; Sir, it is not like that. I think, there should be a reasonable deficit. If a reasonable deficit is not there, that means, we are not developing and, on the contrary, we are stagnating the economy.

Sir, I would just give an example. Sir, we are going in for loans, whether it is from multilateral institutions or from foreign institutions. We are getting loans, and we are investing it. Sir, getting a loan is not an offence, is not a crime; it is not a sin. Sir, today, if I seek a loan of Rs. 5 crores and start one project, after five years -- after the payment of the loan with interest -- I will be the owner of the property, an asset worth Rs. 5 crores. After that, if I seek another loan amounting to Rs. 1000 crores and create an asset, say, for setting up a factory, then, after paying the principal amount with interest, in another five years, I will be creating an asset worth about Rs. 1000 crores. That is the strength of the economy. Going for a loan is not a crime.

Now, Sir, what is the credibility of India today in the international market? When we go outside, the other countries are running after us for giving loans saying that 'your credibility is high and you have paid the principal amount with interest, we have no problem in giving you loan'. If at all there is only one country in the entire world, Sir, which has not become a defaulter and which is paying the principal amount with interest, it is only India. That is the strength of the Indian economy. Sir, no other country is approached saying that 'we are ready to give loans to your country.' There is no other country in the world which is approached like this. No other country is in a position to repay the loan amount with interest. It is only India. So, the question is, when the strength of the economy is like that, whether there is a need to streamline it. The answer is very simple. For that purpose, my submission to the hon. Minister, through you, Sir, is this. You are an efficient Minister. (Contd. by 1w/SKC)

1W/12.40/SKC

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY (CONTD.): I have been seeing you for the last so many years as a Member of Parliament. You can do certain things; with the help of your seniors, you have to get things done. Now, what do you have to do? You have to control the price rise. What is the second thing that you need to do? The hon. Member from the other side has referred to the price of gold. Sir, during the period between 1977 and 1980, the price of gold had gone up and it was made a tall election issue, apart from the other issues. The Government of the day had to go. Now, the price of gold is rising and it has crossed Rs. 10,000. Would a poor person, who wants to get his daughter married, be in a position to purchase one sovereign of gold? Is he in that position today? We have to look into that aspect. Sir, for 30 grams, one has to shell out Rs. 30,000. Will the middle class people be able to do that? So, we need to control that also. We may say that it is coming down now because of international factors. But, we must take some steps towards these things and to control the economy, the Reserve Bank of India should be empowered; whether it be in the field of foreign exchange, whether it be in the field of stock market, in every field, we have to do that.

Now, what is happening in the stock market? Sorry to say, stock market is nothing but speculation and gambling. If today the stock market has risen to one figure, tomorrow it could be brought down by manipulation. Now, if we think that because the stock exchange is on the rise, Indian economy is going to become very strong, then, one day it may so happen that the country would be shocked and the people who have invested may lose crores of rupees. Should that occasion arise? That is for us to consider. The Government should monitor all these things. We cannot say -- look, our stock exchange has gone up like this; it is a big achievement of ours. If you go and talk to the people like that, nobody would accept it. So, the Government should be very careful now. If the Government is not going to be careful, if we go on saying that we are strengthening the economy by helping the stock exchange to rise, tomorrow, the ordinary, common man in the country would say, 'what have you done for us? Are you in a position to give us dal at the rate of Rs. 20 or Rs. 30?' What is the price of dal today? I am told that it has crossed Rs. 50. What else can we give to the common man? Afterall, we have to see to it that democracy reigns. Whether one accepts it or not who are the people who come to vote? It is not the rich people. It is only the poor people. I submit, Sir, and I may be excused for pointing this out. The Secretaries of the Government of India, the intellectuals, do not come, stand in queues and cast their vote. If democracy is surviving in this country, it is because of the poor people, the ordinary middle class people, farmers and the common people. That is why it has been stated that when a Finance Minister presents the Budget, he has to see whether the Budget is going to wipe the tears of the poorest among the poor. That should be the yardstick.

(Contd. by 1X)

HK/1x/12.45

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY (CONTD.): Sir, when I was in the Finance Ministry, yes, I had made a statement here, when so many experts in economy delivered speeches outside the Parliament and said that 'if the Parliament passes the Budget and it is for the poorer class, then it is dubbed as populist.' But if some concession is given to the rich section, then it is stated that it is 'development-oriented'. So, my submission to you, Sir, is that if, along with development, the poor people are also strengthened, then is it not development-oriented? If we are going to invest more money for the people and if we give subsidy to the weaker sections, who cannot have two square meals a day, then, is it not development? So, we also have to see that if we provide something even in the form of subsidy, it is also one of the instruments for the development of nation. Now, Sir, it is a step to control the economy and monitor the economy, and that is why I have stated that this Bill should have come earlier. The hon. Minister can take corrective steps through the Reserve Bank of India, and the Reserve Bank of India should not be viewed as 'untouched', because it is an autonomous body. But what do we say? We say that the Reserve Bank of India should not be touched; we should not look into its affairs. But I am cautioning the Minister that the body could be autonomous, but you are going to be answerable to the Parliament and to the people. Whenever it is required, you have to monitor, you have to go and report. When I was the Minister, I was monitoring the affairs of the Reserve Bank of India, and I had been telling them that there was a deficiency here and you had to rectify it, and corrective measures were taken. It could be the fault of the Reserve Bank of India, but nobody will say that it is the fault of the Reserve Bank of India. They will curse the Minister for no fault of his.

So, my submission to the House through you, Sir, is that the Government should be very, very careful. If I don't bring it to the notice today, then, I am sorry to say, we may have to repent for that tomorrow. For that purpose, I am saying it today.

Sir, I support this Bill and congratulate the Minister for bringing forward this Bill. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI P.G. NARAYANAN (TAMIL NADU): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, the role of the Reserve Bank of India is significant in the finance sector to control the financial market and also inflation. Sir, the RBI has to be strengthened by giving more powers. It is also necessary to remove the existing legal ambiguity and confusions. Sir, through this amendment, it is proposed to empower the RBI to deal in derivatives and also to undertake Repo and Reverse Repo transactions. Sir, the expressions 'derivatives', 'repo' and 'reverse repo' have been defined clearly to avoid confusion. (Contd. by 1y/KSK)

KSK/12.50/1Y

SHRI P.G. NARAYANAN (CONTD): Sir, powers are given to RBI to increase the flexibility on the cash reserves ratio. Sir, the ratio determines the proportion of a bank's liabilities. That it must keep in cash or as a deposit with the RBI. Sir, the principal RBI Act allows the RBI to fix CRR between 3 per cent and 20 per cent of a bank's net demand and time liabilities. Sir, it also specifies that RBI will not pay any interest for the first three per cent and will notify the interest rate, that is currently the bank rate, on CRR beyond three per cent. This Amendment removes the cap, and also specifies that CRR will not carry any interest. Sir, after this Act is passed, RBI is permitted to lend or borrow Central Government or the State Government securities and such securities of local authorities also as specified by the Central Government. Sir, RBI can also regulate the derivatives. All transactions in derivatives will be considered valid if one of the parties is RBI, any Scheduled bank or any agency falling under the purview of RBI. Sir, the validity applies with retrospective effect also. Sir, the RBI may determine the policy relating to interest rate and interest rate products and this will be applicable to all agencies dealing in such products. Sir, RBI may not issue directions relating to execution or settlement of trades or such a few changes. Sir, with these words, I support this Bill. (Ends)

(THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (SHRI KALRAJ MISHRA) in the Chair)

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I rise to support the Reserve Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2006. I feel when hon. Minister introduced this Bill in the other House, and today in this House, the intention is to bring out some amendments in the taxation system in our banking regulation. I support this Bill first. While supporting the Bill, I would say that there are some areas where we would like to look afresh. When we support the Bill, I will tell something regarding that portion also. When I go through the papers, I find that main subject of the Bill is that -- as far as I am concerned, there is an apprehension -- definitions of words, "derivatives" and "repo", have been provided to us. It is a good approach on the part of the Government of India.

(continued by 1z)

GSP-SC/12.55/1Z

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (CONTD.): Sir, I support it but I feel that this is only an adhoc mechanism, an adhoc arrangement so far as the direct and indirect taxation is concerned. I am telling this because there is ample scope, further scope to bring out a comprehensive Bill before this august House. So, I would request the hon. Minister, who is present here, to bring out a comprehensive Bill, having a comprehensive approach regarding direct and indirect taxes, customs duties and others.

Sir, when we are discussing about the Reserve Bank of India, its procedures and the taxation policy, every time, we have to look into three to four areas, which I am going to mention before this august House. My first question is: what is the philosophy of the taxation. Secondly, we should find out a mechanism to plug the loopholes to stop widespread tax evasion that is taking place both in direct and indirect taxes. I request the hon. Minister, my friend, Shri Pawan Bansalji, to note this point and give some assurance to this House on this matter. This Government must be ready to plug these loopholes and many hon. colleagues have also mentioned about this point.

Sir, I think, here, I should mention two, three other points. Now, it is not a weekly affair, I must say, it is a daily matter. We have seen in the newspapers that bank scams are happening throughout the financial markets. We have seen it both in the newspapers and in the electronic media. One day, I read in a newspaper about a specific financial institution that opened one thousand accounts on a single name. Sir, with your permission, this is only one example that I am giving you. Sir, recently, the Reserve Bank of India expressed its views in a caption 'Know Your Customer'. Sir, when a single financial institution is opening one thousand accounts on a single name, in one day, what type of mechanism is there to protect these scams throughout the country?

Secondly, Sir, I would like to mention about the Permanent Account Number (PAN). PAN is popular throughout the country. Everybody wants to get his PAN; everybody is enquiring about my PAN. Whenever I go to any bank or any financial institution in any place of the country to make any transaction, they ask for the Permanent Account Number. We have the figures available with us. Eighteen lakh transactions are made throughout the country but as per a report with us, only 30 per cent of these transactions have the PAN. What is our position or what is our administrative set-up to take up the task of providing PAN to all the persons who make transactions? So, it is my request to the Ministry of Finance to take up this issue immediately because the common people are suffering. Those who are not having the PAN, they are common people, living in the remote areas of the country, and, if we do something for the common people, it will definitely help them.

Sir, I come to another point. So far as the administration of the Reserve Bank of India is concerned, what is the administrative set-up?
