Abolition of Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices (MRTP) Act: According to the MRTP Act, it was made compulsory for large industrial units. take the approval of the Central government for their establishment, expansion, merger, etc. This resulted in slow industrial growth. After 1991, the abolition of the MRTP Act has encouraged industrial growth in India.

Encouragement to the small sector: The government also encouraged small sector units to attain a higher growth rate in output, employment, and export sector. The small sector unit investment limit was increased from 1 crore to 5 crores.

Initially, FDI was permitted up to 51% of total investment in selected industries. Later, this limit was raised to 74% and then 100% for specific industries.

a. Ending state monopoly
b. Improving the efficiency of public sector
c. Releasing capital is blocked in sick public sector enterprises.
To encourage the private sector, NEP reduced the number of industries in the public sector from 17 to 8. From 2014, there are only two industries reserved for public sector viz. railways and atomic energy.

In India, established exporters are allowed to raise external credit to finance their business and trade. Special Economic Zones (SEZ) are set up to promote exports. The Government has also introduced Agro Export Zones (AEZ) to encourage agricultural exports.

Reforms in the insurance sector: Before the new economic policy of 1991, the insurance sector was a monopoly of the government. The new policy passed the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority Act (IRDA) in 1999 to bring reforms in this sector. The IRDA has given licences to many private companies to run an insurance business. This has resulted in the end of the monopoly of the Government in this sector.

Read the following passage and answer the questions given below:

Indian ice-cream industry is one of the fastest-growing segments of the dairy and food processing sector. India has a low per capita consumption of ice-cream of 400 ml whereas in the USA it is 22,000 ml and in China, it is 3000 ml.

    The per capita consumption of ice-cream is low in India because it is a country filled with traditional sweets of more than 100 varieties. In developed countries, people have either pastries or ice-creams for dessert. In the era of Globalisation, the mindset of the people is fast changing. This is because multi-national companies have set up a number of ice-cream parlours, with a lot more varieties and flavours that attract the younger lot. Besides this, there are better delivery systems.

     The ice-cream sector has great potential for growth in the country due to improvement in the cold chain infrastructure, increasing disposable income, and changing lifestyle of the people. However, it is taxed higher with 18 percent GST while other dairy products in the same basket such as butter and cheese are taxed at 12 percent.

The ice-cream industry has generated revenue of more than $1.5 billion in 2016-17. With an employment of 15 lakh people directly or indirectly, it is also considered one of the largest employers of the dairy and food processing industry.

1) Identify the reason for the low per capita consumption of ice-cream in India.

2) Explain the impact of Globalisation on the Indian ice-cream industry.


SOLUTION

The reason for low per capita consumption of ice-cream in India is availability of traditional sweets of more than 100 varieties.

18 per cent GST on ice-cream discourages entrepreneurs from investing in the ice-cream industry. To boost the ice-cream industry, like other dairy products viz. butter, cheese, etc. ice-cream too Should be taxed at 12 per cent GST.
