The Economics Department, Janki Devi Memorial College, organized a national webinar on "Pandemic Crisis and Response: Union Budget 2021-22 in Context" for faculty, scholars, and students across the nation on February 24, 2021.

Objective:

The COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 a difficult year for the Indian Economy. It had suffered even before the pandemic. Therefore, there was a larger economic impact due to inadequate response and dual aggravation of the crisis with a pertinent danger of the lowering of the level of recovery. The Budget 2021-22 holds a very important position in this regard. The objective of this webinar was to discuss the Union Budget 2021-22 in the context of the pandemic and the response of the government.

The Program:

The webinar was initiated by a welcome speech from Ms. Bijoyata Yonzon, teacher-in-charge, Economics Department, JDMC.

Prof. Swati Pal, Principal JDMC, delivered an 'Introductory Address' on the present budget. She explained how the budget is a complex and complicated business; quoting the main purpose of the budget is 'to not over budget'. She emphasized the six pillars of the Union Budget which were health and well-being, physical and financial capital and infrastructure, inclusive development for aspirational India, reinvigorating human capital, innovation, and R&D, minimum government, and maximum governance. She also mentioned that this was the first time a 'paperless budget' was presented in Parliament.

The resource person for the webinar was Prof. Surajit Mazumdar, a Professor of Economics at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning, School of Social Science, Jawaharlal Nehru University. Prof. Mazumdar began his session by making the audience understand the meaning of 'context', which is the pandemic in this case. He further stressed that there is a wider story within which the budget has to be looked at.

He compared the current situation of the economy by giving an analogy to that of a covid patient with comorbidities. Pointing how instead of recovering from the situation, the country has experienced a contraction and performed poorly in comparison to other countries lying in its region. He also threw some light on the performance of various sectors of the economy in the last decade explaining stagnation of growth, leading to the massive problem of inadequate employment.

After giving a brief background of the Indian Economy, he then moved towards the Union Budget 2021-22. He specified the target of the budget as one of the 'fiscal consolidation' emphasizing how the government has not given much importance to expenditure in the budget. If at all, it follows a pattern of conservative expenditure and regressive taxation. The discussion came to an end with the need to shift the target of the budget from fiscal consolidation to address the urgent needs of expenditure in the economy.

After his presentation, Prof. Mazumdar answered all queries that were raised by participants making the session extremely interactive and fruitful. With great detail, he explained the privatization of the insurance sector, particularly emphasizing life insurance. He also answered questions on education and agriculture, making the session informative for the audience as a whole.
