Essay for IBPS PO VII : Price Hike and the Common Indian

Leave a Comment

Price Hike and the Common Indian

Synopsis : Taking account of the price hike in essential domestic commodities like food stuff and LPG could reveal the plight of millions of households. The prices of milk and vegetables ratcheted in recent days have instilled upheaval in domestic budget of middle class families. The unruly price hike of diesel and petrol increases transportation costs which has cascading effects on the market commodities. The price of petrol in 2008 was nearly rupees 45.00 per litre which has crossed an alarming high price line of rupees 63.33 per litre throughout the country with little aberrations. The price of diesel experienced an exorbitant price hike of around rupees 16 per litre from erstwhile low rate of approximately rupees 30.00 per litre. Price hike is akin to a viral disease which insidiously affects a larger section of society and brings infrastructural annihilation. Apart from the direct conundrums, it leads to a sudden drop in demand due to contained purchasing capacity of buyers. The drop in demand is counter balanced by drop in production which means drop in exigencies of variable factors of production, e.g. labour, raw-material, running cost, etc. The drop in labour-requirement unleashes devastating unemployment and under-employment in society. The capitalists face another species of problem simultaneously where the expenditure on fixed factors of production remains equal to the pre-fall demand situation because the fixed factors cost are levied on infrastructure, long-run investment, insurance premium, rent, etc. which are inert to short-run aberrations in total quantity produced. Hence, it bolsters the increase in Average Total Cost of production. 

The deteriorating global market due to the repercussions of global recession of 2008 brought fiscal losses and unemployment in a large geo-economic area. Like many developed and developing nations, India failed to keep her insulated from the ramifications of the global slowdown. Consequently, the economic monsters of fiscal-deficit and deteriorating currency imbued the vicious scourge of price hike into the market. A juxtaposition of the current face price of any arbitrary commodity in the market with that of the price before 2008 could insinuate the manifold increase in prices. The statistical data from the competent institutions like NSSO, RBI, Ministry of Finance, PMEAC and the Planning Commission corroborated the uncomfortably high percentage of inflation ranging near double digits from 8.0% to 11.0% at different quarters of the current financial year based on Consumer Price Index (CPI).

SBI cuts Employee Strength by 6622

2 comments
India's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) has cut its workforce in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018 by 6,622 people, driven by natural attrition such as retirements and the voluntary retirement scheme, also raising concerns as active digitisation in the banking sector will slow down hiring of the workforce.

It is more likely that layoffs would continue in SBI and employee retirements in 2017-18 financial year will bring down the workforce by 15,460. Other than that, digitalization and merger of associate banks are expected to show its impact on 10,000 employees.

However, the bank said it will redeploy around 10,000 employees from administrative offices and associate banks and assign them to sales functions.
