to address the drug problem and attributed it to the force’s preoccupation with law and order “Why the police are not able to restrict the circulation of drugs has a lot to do with their constant involvement in the law and order problems that Kashmir has no dearth of” he said Umar Trumboo general secretary of Civil Society Forum of Kashmir (CSFK) an NGO agreed “It is a fact that the political and security situation keeps changing here frequently” said Trumboo “The police often get busy dealing with law and order issues and that allows drug use and peddling to remain unnoticed” The NDPS Act provides stringent provisions for offences related to drug abuse and trafficking “(But) despite the fact that major offences under the aforesaid Act are non-bailable it has been observed that in several cases the drug offenders secure acquittal on technical grounds” read the home department’s order we previously cited “A large number of offenders in NDPS cases are acquitted due to non-compliance of mandatory provisions and the prescribed procedure” What can be done: More officers fewer acquittals A police official who did not wish to be named told IndiaSpend that the police

addiction and peddling” he said Speedy acquittals of drug peddlers is another issue "In other north Indian states a person arrested under NDPS Act doesn’t get bail for months” said the officer “But here in Kashmir such arrestees secure release within 10 days" The CSFK’s Trumboo suggested coordination between various government agencies “We need proper education rehabilitation and corrective measures” said Trumboo “It isn’t rocket science” CSFK intends to bring groups working against drug addiction under one umbrella and submit a proposal to the government to bring all relevant

Renownedmuch-rewarded and a Padma VibhushanZubin Mehta has talked of dreaming to perform in Kashmir Howeversince German Ambassador Michael Steiner announced a concert by him on September 7 in Srinagars Shalimar Gardensthe Valley has only been hearing voices opposed to it Protests from separatists have ranged from the programme legitimising the occupation of the state (by Hurriyat Conference hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani) and it being a waste of money (moderate Hurriyat face Mirwaiz Umar Farooq) to it giving a wrong view of the Valley being prosperous (Grand Mufti Bashir-ud-din) If the mainstream politicians have a view on what was billed as the biggest such show in Kashmirgathering around 1500 peoplethey have kept quiet Even the incorrigible tweeter Omar Abdullah The fact is that a number of peopleespecially those in tourism sectorsee the event as a great opportunity to showcase Kashmirs beauty globally as well as to send a message that peace is back on the rails Some local musicians who have seen their art muffled in the miltancy years are also telling separatists to reconsider their stand The Mirwaiz believes the money spent on the concert can be better utilised in health and education sectors While that logic is as specious as it comesin adding the weight of his voice to the oppositionGrand Mufti Bashir-u-din appears to have confused the nature of this classical concert Some leaders are visualising a music show with girls dancing as Mehta plays instruments Incidentally the same Grand Mufti was recently in the news for issuing a fatwa against music terming it un-Islamic and later being caught watching a musical programme The concert is not the first to be held in Kashmir In 2008 Pakistani band Junoons performance had been a huge hit A year later Terra Naomi had performedeven singing some Kashmiri couplets Musicians from TurkeySyria and other parts of the world also have been holding programmes sponsored by the J&K Cultural Academy That brings us to Geelanis protest What makes the Mehta show different is the German involvement Separatist leaders believe this will have far-reaching consequences as in the past Germanyas head of the European Unionhad issued statements on Kashmirs human rights violations Germany incidentally has initiated some programmes in Kashmir University now A cynical view is that the protests are just a means for separatist groups to remain in the newsand what better way than hitching your wagon to a global celebrity such as Mehta Considering that the audience for the concert would be mostly VIPs and that Beethoven or Tchaikovsky does not have a mass followingthey can gamble on their protests not backfiring too hard Ehsan is a principal correspondent based in Srinagar [email protected]

integrate into the global financial system Top News The SIT on black money has asked that the ultimate beneficiary owner of every participatory note (PN) be traced This revives an old misplaced mistrust from nearly a decade ago PNs help India better integrate into the global financial system When India fixes its financial systems to become more competitive these very PN customers will bring their business onshore PNs are one way for international investors to put their money in Indian assets today When they want to invest in an Indian company they buy a contract from financial firms in their country In turn these firms may choose to invest in the Indian asset by buying a PN from a Sebi-registered foreign portfolio investor (FPI) a “PN-seller” Many times one firm comes to buy a contract from the PN-seller and at the same time another comes to sell it The PN-seller makes money by charging fees to both No back-to-back transaction takes place in India The PN-seller is “running a book” Sometimes he sells 100 to one person and buys 80 from another This leaves an imbalance of 20 This net imbalance shows up as a trade in India when the FPI sells the security These are reported as PN trades to Sebi The PN-seller is continuously changing its position in India generating PN trades These activities are good for India because they connect it with the world of global finance PNs are a reflection of the global investment community’s interest in Indian assets But why does the international financial investor buy a PN instead of investing directly As with everything in finance this is about getting the lowest priceThere are several problems with Indian policy due to which directly trading in India results in a higher price Trades on Indian exchanges are charged securities transaction tax (STT) a policy mistake There is no such cost for the global investor when buying from a foreign financial firm PN-sellers are domiciled in places like London and Singapore where tax policy is sensible and transactions are not taxed Since the PN-seller only sends its net imbalance as trades to India the burden of the STT is lower The taxation of non-residents other than from Mauritius and Singapore is another policy mistake Some foreign investors bring their money into India through Mauritius or Singapore to achieve residence-based taxation Others take their business to PN-sellers domiciled in places where financial activities of non-residents are tax exempt and who have worked out Mauritius/ Singapore vehicles to do trades in India The PN business is helping India earn revenues by avoiding the consequences of our flawed approach to taxation of non-residents India has also made policy mistakes on capital controls For example it makes it difficult to take a position on currency futures in excess of $15 million PN-sellers are domiciled in places where financial regulation does not do this The SIT wants to know the ultimate beneficiary of a PN transaction This is inadvisable First because PNs are a reflection of a net position between all buyers and sellers it’s impossible to pinpoint the ultimate beneficiary owner Second the regulator has the ability to trace the ownership chain only after an investigation starts This suffices for regulators in 33 of the Financial Action Task Force-signatory countries Third if a person in India buys a derivative in India and sells it to an investor in London India does not have the right to ask about the London investor except in the context of an investigation Strong-arm tactics and unreasonable information requests will drive up the cost of doing business If we want better knowledge about the beneficiary owner we would do well to reform tax policy capital controls and financial regulation to bring the business directly to India This would be more effective in strengthening regulatory control without destroying much-needed global flows into India The writer is assistant professor IGIDR Mumbai For
