Title: Develop India

Because of Poverty, Slow Development, Corruption,
Disorder etc in Kerala India, I searched for a
good model for FAST Socio-economic Development
Not accurate But the only map found
Slides advance on Mause click
Many may think this is an old story!
  • In August 2007, Dr. Arjun Sengupta Committee
    reported that 836 million Indians over 77
    percent - are poor and vulnerable surviving on a
    daily average expenditure of under Rs. 20 a
    day(The Hindu newspaper from 811 June 2008)
  • http//
  • 14 Jul 2010 - Indian states Bihar, Chhattisgarh,
    Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan,
    Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal have 421 million
    "poor" people, a UN sponsored study found. This
    is more than the 410 million poor in the poorest
    26 African countries. This is measured by a new
    Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI).
  • http//
  • On 15 Jun 2011 a survey by TrustLaw, a UK-based
    Foundation revealed
  • That India is the fourth most dangerous country
    for women after
  • Afganistan, Congo and Pakistan. All the above are
    a shame for
  • the Indian legislatures who managed India all
    these yeras.

Many documents can be added to prove the very bad
state of India! But any observant Indian knows
these very well!
PPP, Text Concept by Abraham Karammel
Two Super Models of FAST Development
  • Singapore is worlds most successful City for
    more than 25 years. It developed from 3rd world
    to 1st in about 25 years, thru authoritative,
    disciplining and restrictive democracy by highly
    talented technocrats this is called
    Meritocracy it is a type of benevolent
    autocracy. It also had unique circumstances and
    exceptional personalities behind its success!
  • Porto Alegre is Brazils city with the best
    quality of life since 2001.
  • This city was bankrupt in 1988, spending 96 of
    revenue for
  • salaries and routine expenses. To resolve this
    crisis, the city
  • started Participatory Budgeting (PB) in 1989.
    This PB evolved into
  • worlds most efficient systematic
    socio-economic development process, now famous as
    Porto Alegre Innovation. This PB process
  • is suitable for villages/towns/cities of
    developing and developed countries.
  • Because of its great merits, Participatory
    Budgeting is adapted in about 300 local
    Governments in Brazil and in about 40 countries
    including Argentina, Chile, China, Mexico,
    Paraguay, Canada, England, France, Germany,
    Italy, Spain, USA etc.
  • Why Singapore Porto Alegre? These are two
    super-models from recent
  • history that any one can trace. Porto Alegre is a
    much researched
  • model of our times.

The Secret of Singapores Success Mr. Lee Kuan
Yew founded Peoples Action Party (PAP) in
1954 Became the 1st PM in 1959 was chosen
repeatedly as PM until 1990 Declined to be PM in
1991 was Senior Minister from 1991 to 2004
Mr. Lee was placed as Minister Mentor in Aug
2004 (Probably worlds longest serving minister
and only Mentor Minister Till 14 May
2011!) Right Mr. Lees book From Third World to
  • Mr. Lee Kuan Yew the 1st PM of Singapore is a
    Double 1st Class
  • Cambridge Law Graduate Very knowledgeable, great
    orator Visionary
  • In 1960s, during political struggle, he started
    planting trees in the city!
  • On a friends tip, he imported fishing rods for
    the poor to catch fish for food!!
  • In 1994 he linked ministers salaries to that of
    8 top earners in 6 top professions,
  • to attract best brains to politics be clean! It
    was fixed at 2/3 the median earnings
  • of lawyers, accountants, bankers, MNC CEOs, local
    Company CEOs and engineers.
  • In 2008 Singapore PMs revised salary was S3,09
    mil. or US 2.04 mil. per year!
  • In 2011 PMs salary was reduced by 36 to S2.2
    mil. (US 1.9 Mil.)Bonus!
  • Salary now linked to 1000 top earnings of
    Singapore citizens Isnt it SMART?
  • US President gets only 400,000, UK PM 375,222
    French President 346,000!!
  • Important advice of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew
  • The important personality traits of his CEOs
  • 1. Analytical Thinking, 2. Logical understanding
    of Cause and Effect,
  • 3. Concentration to the Point/Target, and 4.
    Imagination (known as Helicopter Qualities)

Mr. Lee influenced almost everything in Singapore!
Criticisms on Singapore Very Authoritative
rule No real democracy No freedom of
opinion Highly censored press Very short lead
time for elections Compulsory voting those do
not vote lose the right Singapore is a
fine-city (penalty-city) Very harsh
punishments Death penalty for drug smuggling
Kidnapping Country with the highest death penalty
rate Too high salaries of Singapore
Ministers PMs salary as reduced in 2011 S2.2
million (US1.7 mil.) /year Because of the
above, the uniqueness of Singapore etc, its
political system is not practical in
Kerala/India But Singapores Institutionalisation
is worth copying!!
Singapors Meritocracy is excellent for High
Quality Institutionalisation! But, Singapores
Authoritarian Rule Is almost impossible in
Kerala/India!!Therefore, I searched further
  • I read about Porto Alegre Innovation
  • in Participatory Budgeting and collected details!
  • 1. It is a process for Infrastructure Development
  • 2. It is a Ward-wise Decentralised Budgeting
  • 3. It is a Grass-roots upwards process
  • 4. The yearly cyclic process evaluates, corrects
    and adjusts
  • 5. The process continuously improves in
  • 6. It resolved Bankruptcy of the city in SIX
  • 7. It made Porto Alegre, Brazils city with the
    best quality of life
  • in 12 years (1989-2001)!

The Brazilian city Porto Alegre proved
that Another World is Possible Fairer more
  • Porto Alegres Development
  • In 12 Years 1989-2001
  • (Yearly spending only 3 to 15 of City Budget for
  • Pipe Water from 40 to 99 households
  • Sanitation improved from 46 to 85
  • Sewerage from 46 to 90
  • Public schools increased from 29 to 86
  • School Enrolment doubled (200) Literacy to 98

  • Established very efficient Public Transportation
  • Tax collection improved and bankruptcy resolved
  • Corruption virtually disappeared
  • Citizen participation in PB process increased
  • 700 in 1989 to 50,000 in 2001
  • Rated as Brazils city with the highest quality
    of life

Porto Alegres Innovative Participatory Budgeting
(PB) process
  • The 497 sq. km city was divided into 16 wards.
    Many pre-planned minor discussion meetings and
    two major assemblies of the residents are held in
    each ward, from March thru July every year.
  • 12 infrastructure ward themes selected by
    experts 1. education, 2. health,
  • 3. housing, 4. sewage, 5. social assistance, 6.
    transportation circulation, 7. pavement, 8.
    city organisation, 9. leisure areas, 10. sports
    leisure, 11. economic development, and 12.
    culture. Additional 5 Infrastructure themes
  • for City-wide consideration C1. Transportation
    Circulation C2. Education, Leisure Culture
    C3. Health Social Welfare C4. Economic
    Development Taxation and C5. City Organisation
    Urban Development.
  • 3. Residents of each ward vote to select
    prioritise three Infrastructures urgently needed
    in each ward, from the 12 above.
  • 4. The residents also elect two PB Councillors
    and two alternates from each ward and for each
    city-wide theme for one year. Participatory
    Budgeting Council (PBC) of 42 members is the most
    important organ in PB.
  • 5. Infrastructures voted by residents are
    equitably shared among the wards, based on the
    population of the ward, the weight assigned to
    the relevant infrastructure, the volume of the
    infrastructure in the ward and the priority
  • 6. PBC negotiates with Mayors executives the
    city councillors, the adoption of priorities,
    implementation of projects and oversees them too.
  • 7. Directly elected Mayer and his executives,
    separately elected City Council, and the
    Participatory Budgeting Council three teams -
    work together.
  • (See graphics of the process on the following

  • In 12 years, Porto Alegre became the City
  • with the best Quality of Life in Brazil
  • Based on 15 factors
  • Housing, 2. Sanitation,
  • 3. Life Expectancy,
  • 4. Infant Mortality, 5. Hospital Beds,
  • 6. Literacy, 7. School enrolment,

Singapore was developed from the TOP in 25
years by Mr. Lee and his colleagues.
Porto Alegre is developed by Residents from the
BOTTOM in 12 years thru a very efficient
systematic process
Decentralisation up to the wards is the key in
both cities
Kerala and India need elements of BOTH for a
FASTER development
Socio-economic Problems
  • When socio-economy is NOT managed well,
  • Unemployment, Poverty, Diseases, Suicides,
  • Destitution, Migration etc become acute!?
  • Then, every action to solve them
  • Should be very careful, deliberte, and balanced.
  • Success models should be adapted to save time,
    effort and errors!
  • Copying is the easiest, quickest, most economical
  • And a very efficient way of doing things!
  • Computers, cars, Jumbo-jets and human beings are
  • Copies can be even better than the original or
  • Decisive points in copying 1. Essential
    Adaptations should be made
  • to make it feasible in a different situation
  • and 2. Important Elements should not be dropped
    out at all
  • Today, for about 95 percent of the problems in
    the world,
  • several solutions are available somewhere!!

Two Success Stories Both highlight Effective
Local Involvement
  • Indian State Andhra Pradesh shows the way Social
    audits in Andhra Pradesh covering 12 million
    people is a brilliant example of civil society
    action enriching mainstream politics
  • Political support has, of course, been a
    necessary but by no means sufficient condition.
    Two other novel features have turned the tide.
    One, the use of Information Technology (IT) and
    the other, the role of civil society. All stages
    of NREGA work, from registration of workers to
    issue of job cards, preparation of work
    estimates, muster rolls and payments to workers
    have been computerised. With strong
    administrative backing and robust social audit,
    this IT system frees information from the
    shackles of power and privileged access.

A mission thats possible Community-based
monitoring has laid bare the inadequacies of the
primary health care system in Indian State
Maharashtra The National Rural Health Mission
(NRHM) was introduced in 2005 to improve health
care in poor areas with an enhanced funding
mechanism. More than the mission itself, it is
the community-based monitoring component
introduced in Maharashtra in April 2007, which
has emerged as a means of correcting
institutionalised deficiencies. (From Article

4 Model Indian Panchayats
  • Religan Siddhi (Maharashtra) - Sri. Anna Hazare
  • Area 982.3 hector. No. of Households 394 in
    2001 Population 2306 (Two thousand three
    hundred six)
  • The small draught ridden village had poverty,
    unemployment, alcoholism etc. Many residents
    deserted it for jobs. In 1975 Anna Hazare, a
    retired Indian Army driver, started dedicated
    developmental work in the village.
  • Five principles (Panchasuthri) adopted by Anna
    Hazare 1.1. Voluntary Free Labour,
  • 1.2. Family Planning, 1.3. Ban on Tree Cutting,
    1.4. Ban on Liquor, and 1.5. Ban on open free
  • In a few years, the village became self
    sufficient and a model for Indian villages.
  • Maharashtra govt started a project of 300 model
    villages with Sri Anna Hazare/Popet Pawar as
    project officers. 100 villages were selected and
    work started. Lately, the state govt stopped
    funding it.
  • Status in 2007 Infant Mortality 27.42/1000
    High School Completion 85
  • Sri. Anna Hazare has been honored by 20 National
    International awards.

  • 2. Hiware Bazar (Maharashtra) Sri. Popat Pawar
  • (1st Successful copy of Relegan Siddhi)
  • No. of Households in 1990-95180 Below Poverty
    Line (BPL) 168 (93)
  • No. of BPL households during 2002-2010 11 out of
  • Per capita income Rs. 832 (1994) Rs. 24,893
    (2007) Increase 30 times!
  • This village had the same problems as Relegan
    Siddhi. In 1994 Popat Pawar, an M.Com graduate
    persuaded by residents, stood for and won
    Panchayat President election. He started
    dedicated developmental work copying Relegan
    Siddhi. In a few years Hiware Bazar superseded
    Religan Sidhi in development.
