“Subsidies, a topic on which no politician or policy-maker would prefer to speak publically, is actually a major issue of concern for the Indian government. Subsidies should be targeted in a manner such that only the needy stratum of the society gets to reap the maximum benefits.” said Prof. Vijay Paul Sharma, Chairman, Centre for Management in Agriculture, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.

Addressing the management students at HP University Business School, Shimla in a guest talk organized by HPUBS Students Association, Shimla, the learned professor from IIM-Ahmedabad said that rather than criticizing the states that are doing well in terms of growth & development, the centre & states that lag behind, should learn from the former. Mr. Vijay gave a detailed factual description of the present economic scenario in the country based on recent statistical data.

He said that the private sector’s focus must shift from urban-centric consumers to rural areas. Raising a question, he said that how can we expect our economy to grow if the largest contributor i.e. Agriculture sector is growing just at a rate of 2.5%. He said that the problem with our economy is due to the gap between Demand & Supply, where demand is increasing at a faster pace whereas supply is inadequate to meet the demand mainly due to technological & basic infrastructural constraints.

In his concluding remark, Prof. C. L. Chandan, Director, HPUBS Shimla said that this talk by Prof. Vijay was a fruitful one with the students of HPUBS getting to learn a lot about the present economic scenario of the country.
Er. Vishal Sharma, Departmental Representative, HPUBS Shimla extended the vote of thanks on behalf of HPUBS Students Association (the organizing body of this guest talk).

Faculty members of HPUBS Shimla, Prof. C.L. Chandan, Prof. Yashwant Gupta, Prof. S.L. Kaushal, Prof. Pawan Garga, Prof. Pramod Sharma, Prof. J.S.

Himachal Pradesh Educational Institutes closed again

Shimla-A week after re-opening for regular classes, the Himachal Pradesh Government had to shut down all government and private schools, colleges, ITIs, polytechnics, engineering colleges and coaching institutes from 11th to 25th November 2020, for students, teaching and non-teaching staff amid alarming surge in COVID-19 cases and fatalities.

The decision was taken in a Cabinet meeting held on November 10, 2020. It’s pertinent to mention that the state government had re-opened the school for the students of 9th to 12th from November 2. However, during the past few days, hundreds of teachers and several students tested positive in various schools, especially in Mandi district.

Meanwhile, the unpreparedness of the state government came to light as the largest medical facility – IGMC Shimla- ran out of space in isolation wards for COVID-19 patients. It’s packed to full capacity. Reportedly, another dedicated COVID-19 hospital – DDU Shimla- was also running out of space. The government has also failed to establish make-shift hospitals, which it had been promising for the past couple of months. However, Chief Minister Jairam Thakur had been maintaining in media statements that the government was prepared for all eventualities.

Questions have also been raised over the quality of protective gear provided to health staff as several officials tested positive at a COVID-19 hospital in Mandi district.
