China solution, which lauds Beijings success in weapons development and manufactureis misconstrued: Chinas self-reliance has not produced new conventional weapons Chinese aircrafttanks and ships are quite ordinary platforms Its successes in nuclearmissilelaserand cyberwar technologies are all unconventional The causes of Chinese successes in unconventional military technologies are manybut it is worth remembering that the Chinese government has used an extensive spying campaign in pursuit of commercial and military secrets This consequences of the campaign are now catching up with Beijing as the United States and other Western powers gear up to prevent Chinese infiltration As an emerging powerIndia is better off being seen as a benign force It is better off buying technology rather than stealing it It is better off inviting the world to participate in its rise than keeping the world outside and suspicious Better off acting transparently in the defence marketplace even at the cost of sacrificing secrecy Better off reforming its procurement systemrather than winnowing down the market India buys weapons from foreign suppliers not only to develop military capacity but also to build relationships with other key countries that facilitate its rise The key instrument of economic efficiency in any marketpricingis mind-bogglingly inefficient when it comes to armaments Weapons in the same category made by different manufacturers are not readily comparableespecially at the higher rungs of the technology ladder There are too few sellers and even fewer buyers to make a truly competitive market Furtherthe value of a particular weapon-system in the context of a national security strategy is hard to calculate Tryfor examplefiguring out whether missiles or attack aircraft have greater utility; practically every government faced with the decision went with boththe most expensive and least efficient option Indias defence market faces these challenges and more We argued in our book Arming without Aiming that Indian military procurement is disconnected from national objectives Indian grand strategy de-emphasises the use of force and consequentlythe military receives little strategic guidance from the political leaders Prime Minister Manmohan Singhfor examplehas repeatedly said at conferences with Indian military commanders that the countrys primary threats are internalwithout publicly clarifying the role of the armed forces in meeting internal security challenges Only the Indian army participates in internal security operationsthat tooin well defined areas such as Kashmir; what should the Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy do According to the Constitutionthe armed forces are not responsible for internal security The policewhich is responsible for domestic law and orderremains in the hands of the states and outside the ability of the Central government to reform On the military sidethe result is that the services are left to define the threats they believe the country faces and accordingly they appear to be preparing to fight three different wars against three different enemies Todaythe army thinks it needs an air force of its ownthe navy wants to acquire its own thermonuclear capabilityand the IAF appears to be planning for wars independent of the other two services India was one of the first countries in the world to integrate officer training at the NDA and the Staff College but everything else seems to be contributing to service rivalries Indias unified commands are feeble and there is no movement on a new combined defence chief Only actual wars and initial setbacks seem to produce inter-service cooperationsuch as between the army and the IAF in Kargil The problem is exacerbated by the lack of military expertise in the political and bureaucratic class Several retired defence secretaries we spoke with during the course of writing Arming without Aiming reported that it was not until their second or third postings in the ministry that they had acquired a sense of competence in the field Arun Singhone of the more respected defence ministers in Indian historyonce proposed keeping certain IAS and IFS officers in defence-related positions for much of their careers in effect creating a specialist cadre within the civilian bureaucracy Another option might be to bring in outside civilian experts from the academy or journalism into government for short-periods of time like in the American systembut the thought of lateral entry into the civil serviceor a defence cadre within the IASremains unthinkable The Indian defence industry is largely state-owned and has its own problems of bias and corruption that result in cost and quality losses for the armed forces The DRDO and the defence public sector units operate as a monopoly with attendant failures in innovationcostand accountability The scientific advisor to the defence ministerwho shapes procurement decisionsalso heads the military research labswhich puts him in the position of evaluating his own work in comparison with those of others This conflict of interest is not even seen as a source of corruption The continued absence of Indian firms in the defence marketplace reflects a deep-seated ideological bias against profit as a motive for productive action The expectation that Indian private industryif allowed entry into the military productionwill be less corrupt is misguided as well Doubtlessthe government will have greater control over an Indian seller than it does over a foreign supplierbut the actions of businesses alone do not cause corruption; government officials have to take bribes There is no reason to expect that Indian firms will not be asked to pay up to win contracts These dysfunctions persist behind the trope of secrecy Military-strategic matters are national secrets no doubtbut the process of buying weapons (that are already owned by other countries) hardly needs to be conducted in secret Similarlythe DRDOwhich is not building any unheard of weapon-systemshould conduct itself in full public view and allow its scientists to join the peer review system Closed-off organisations generally fail to innovate; little wonder that only 3 per cent of DRDO scientists and engineers have PhDs Opening up the military research and weapons procurement process to public view would reduce the potential for corruptionand it would not be worse than the present glacial acquisition process Indian defence badly needs reformbut the recommendations of several high-powered committees including those headed by Arun SinghNaresh Chandra and the irreplaceable K Subrahmanyam (Kargil review) remain ignored by several governments India needs to begin at the beginningwith a clearer vision of the

special category statesmore so when Bihar meets just one of the four criteria for inclusion While the Centre has some room to manoeuvre (more on this in a bit)the larger point is that the states that are backwardeven if not in the technical sense that makes them eligible for special category statusdo tend to get a much larger share of the Central pie To put some numbers to thisaround 60 per cent of all funds transferred by the Centre to the states are accounted for by tax transfers These transfers are decided by the Finance Commission (FC)a new one set up every five years So the last FCthe 13thdecided that 325 per cent of all Central tax revenues would be given to the states Given the need to compensate states that could lose revenue in the initial years of the GSTthe 14th FC could well increase this share Then there is the issue of how this money is to be divided among the states Give it by the share of taxes the states collectand the richer states will get a lot more since they generate a lot more GDP and hence taxes Each FC comes up with a formula for how the inter-state division is to take place and while each formula differs slightly from the othersby and largethe poorer states tend to get a larger share of revenues The 13th FCfor instanceallocates a fourth of the weight to population and a 10th to areaboth of which favour poorer states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar A little under 48 per cent of the weight is assigned to what is called fiscal capacityor the ability of a state to raise revenues the lower the capacityas in Biharthe greater the share of Central taxesso that the state can use the money to develop Only 175 per cent of the weight was assigned by the 13th Finance Commission to fiscal disciplinewhere the richer states score Once you take into account the fact that around 60 per cent of all Central transfers are through tax-sharing and that this is weighted in favour of the poorer statesthe results are revealing UP accounts for 165 per cent of Indias populationbut just 77 per cent of its GDP and 96 per cent of the taxes collected by state governments on their own WellUP accounts for 197 per cent of all Central tax transfers and 143 per cent of all devolution of funds from the Centre this includes tax transfersgrantsassistance Biharthe original claimant for special category statusaccounts for 86 per cent of Indias population28 per cent of the GDP and 24 per cent of all taxes collected by the states on their own it gets 11 per cent of all Central tax transfers and 88 per cent of all devolution of funds Maharashtra accounts for 93 per cent of Indias population139 per cent of the GDP157 per cent of taxes collected by the states but just 62 per cent of all Central devolution and transfer of resources None of this is to say that the Centre has no room for manoeuvre when it comes to giving out dole to make friends or nourish existing relationships Around Rs 40000 crore of railway projects were promised to West Bengal when the Trinamool was in charge of the ministrythough its not clear how many will eventually come up and the Centre does get to weigh in on where a PSU will make a big investment Then there are the special packages from time to timeNitish Kumars Rs 12000-crore BRGF package over five years being one of them There have been weavers and Bundelkhand packages in the past andmore importantthere has been a sharp jump in the discretionary Special Plan Assistance and Special Central Assistance as a proportion of the Central Plan Assistance to the Plans of states and Union territoriesthis has risen from 59 per cent in 2000-01 to 165 per cent in 2012-13 Thatno doubtis a lot of moneybut the question chief ministers need to ask themselves is whether it is enough to make a difference to their people In the case of Biharthe share of industry which is where good jobs come from has plummeted to under 5 per cent in 2011-12 Biharin factwould do better to get more farm subsidies Punjabs paddy farmer
