The woes of administered prices

While there is a lot of focus on two administered prices - the rupee-dollar and petroleum products - there are many other products where the government also has an extensive engagement. Business World has an interesting edit on the story unfolding with cotton.

  1. That edit goes like this :

    " ... Pawar will have to go to P. Chidambaram and plead for a subsidy. The finance minister is not very sympathetic to such frivolous demands, especially from a minister who left the Congress and has not yet returned to it. "

    Interestingly, the FM himself had left the congress (years ago) for the breakaway GK Moopanar's TMC !
