    Ecodevelopment in crisis: Buxa Tiger Reserve and Forest People1999In: Economic and Political Weekly, ISSN 0012-9976, Vol. 34, no 30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Rabhas who live in the Buxa tiger reserve buffer zone must see some irony in their officially acknowledged status of partner's in wildlife conservation. The tiger project has so far meant only curtailed employment and access to the forest for them, for the concept of popular participation in conservation is still only a concept. What is wanting is an effort to address appropriately the question of indigenous peoples rights.

    Nuclear Lives: Uranium mining, indigenous peoples, and development in India2009In: Economic and Political Weekly, ISSN 0012-9976, Vol. 44, no 34, p. 43-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    India's nuclear programme has suffered from a shortage of uranium. As elsewhere in the world, the main uranium deposits are located on lands belonging to indigenous or tribal peoples. This paper discusses the unfolding controversy relating to uranium mining in the West Khasi Hills of Meghalaya. The government-owned Uranium Corporation of India has for long been trying to get access to the deposits of uranium, but has failed due to local opposition. During the past two years the government has stepped up its efforts to allow mining in Meghalaya and seeks to win over local people with promises of development. Although a reasonable proposition for some, there is also a strong opposition to this, usually citing either health reasons or issues having to do with ethnic sovereignty and indigenous rights. Allowing uranium mining, it is argued, would lead to the loss of indigenous lands and open the region to a large-scale influx of non-tribal people.

    Reforming or Replacing the Public Distribution System With Cash Transfer?2012In: Economic and Political Weekly, ISSN 0012-9976, Vol. XLVII, no 7, p. 53-62Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The targeted public distribution system, intended to provide subsidised food to poor households, is the largest welfare programme in India, with a budget corresponding to about 1% of the net national product. Several studies have found the system to be inefficient and costly in assisting the poor. This paper analyses the case for, and against, replacing a reformed version of this system with a targeted and differentiated cash transfer scheme. Such a scheme could cover about two-thirds of households, and make far larger transfers to the poorest compared to the actual subsidy embedded in the current system, eliminating the risk of large exclusion errors. Further, the overall budget can be held at the present outlay level. It is argued that most of the objections to such a transfer scheme can be circumvented at the design stage.
