Q1. What has to be done to increase public expenditure?
A1: On the manufacturing side, consumer durables, Capital goods and construction are among the worst sufferers from the Pandemic so far. Existing Public investment & infrastructure programs must be accelerated sharply.
Contact Services like Restaurants, hotels, travel, tourism, retail trade, entertainment, are the worst directly affected by the Pandemic. The only way to revive demand for these services is to undertake public health expenditures which will reduce fears of infection and death from the corona virus. Public health expenditures on communicable and infectious diseases and public health education in media and schools must also be stepped up. The “Swatch Bharat” mission should be expanded to promote the modernization of urban, semi-urban sewage systems. State governments should set up similar schemes for semi-rural & rural areas.
A certification system should also be set up to certify Viral load/viral quality of air in public meeting rooms, halls and other large venues. The government should start a big loan program for manufacture & subsidized purchase of Ultra-violet(UV-C) filtration systems for centrally air conditioned spaces and UV lights for cleaning of all closed public spaces, particularly bars, party rooms and public bathrooms. Ventilation improvements in workplaces, offices, shops and commercial establishment could either be part of this program or be included in phase 2.
