Commenting on India's rising dossier of lending scams, Luis Miranda argues that the solution is not necessarily a change in ownership, but mending of the constitution and efficacy of the PSBs management body and consequently, the governance that they impart.
CHECK OUT CCS' ONLINE ARCHIVE OF INDIAN LIBERAL WRITINGS
Indian Liberals, a digital library of all Indian liberal works is an initiative of the Centre for Civil Society, in partnership with Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom.
Liberalism is distinguished by its focus on the primacy of the individual in all spheres of human life—political, economic, and social. A culture as old as India’s would obviously have a strand of thought that is labeled today as liberalism or libertarianism. India’s liberalism has evolved through stages that first emphasized earthly life and materialism, then social reforms and political independence, and now economic and social freedom. However, despite the general recognition of the role of liberalisation in improving the standard of living for millions in India, many feel that these ideas and policies were unnecessary, alien to Indian thinking, and imposed by the west.
Our Indian Liberals project is an effort to preserve India’s history with liberalism; to ensure that every Indian, today and tomorrow, are familiar with our own national champions of liberty; and that their ideas are more widely known and accepted. The archive houses important works by C. Rajagopalachari, A.D. Shroff, Minoo Masani, and Nani Palkhivala among others.
