bankers Politicians are gearing up to imprison bankers for cheating A more careful analysis of the story suggests that while the behaviour of banks was unsavourythere were mitigating circumstances Looking into the futurea fresh focus needs to be placed on the informational foundations of finance Chartered accountantscredit-rating agencies and other data gatherers provide information that can play a vital role in the working of the financial system Regulators need to be concerned about their conflict of interest and engage in a certain degree of oversight Libor is the interest rate at which banks borrow and lend from each other in London Transactions take place through conversations on the phone We can know the buying and selling price for shares of Infosys by glancing at the NSE screen Howeverthere is no comparable screen where we can learn the Libor For the last 26 yearsthe British Bankers Association (BBA) has computed Libor by asking dealers what they saw as prevailing market conditionsdeleting the high and low values of the reportsand averaging the rest During the global crisisthe inter-bank money market broke down Banks did not trust each other and stopped lending to each other No trades were taking place When bankers were asked to quote a rateit is reported that they would often delay beyond the usual 11 am because they were in a bind News reports also suggest that people often gave outlandish numbers and would be asked to reconsider It was not just Barclays that reported unrealistically low ratesbut all of the 160 or more people working in various banks The US says it had pointed out that Libor rates were too lowand blames the UK regulator for not being alert enough and solving the problem Four years laterthe US is waking up to the fact that a wrong Libor means that many people received more or less money than they should have for contracts linked to the Libor From the viewpoint of the banksthere were two kinds of considerations Some banks in distress were facing very high borrowing rates because others in the market were not sure they would survive They were afraid of putting out signals of distress if those high rates were revealed to the world Other banks were borrowing from the central bank at zero per cent interestand had no idea what borrowing in the inter-bank market would actually cost They liked to quote high rates because they earned more interest on Libor-linked loans Some enforcement agenciessuch as in the USbelieve that giving out false quotations is a criminal actand hope to send some dealers to prison With the benefit of hindsightit appears that the right decision would have been to announce that the money market had broken down and that Libor could not be computed But this would have exacerbated the perception that the global financial system was in collapse Most contracts written in terms of the Libor rate did not have a clause covering a situation where Libor was not observed To ignore the problems with setting the Libor was perhaps a practical decision taken by banksthe BBAand the US and UK governments After the issue came to lightthe blame is being put solely on bankerswho no doubt were complicitbut maybe not much more than the regulators Producers of some other information products acted differently during the crisis For examplea rate that ran into trouble in autumn 2008 was about inflationary expectations in the US market Trading in inflation-linked bonds collapsed The US Fed responded to the lack of liquidity in the US Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) market by halting the daily information release of the implied inflation rate Howeverthere was no large financial market predicated on this implied inflation rateso few ripples were created by suspending the production of this information Looking forwardwe should see that information production is a critical function underlying the financial system Data production should be seen alongside credit ratingaccountingauditing etc as the vital infrastructure that shapes the markets Governments and regulators should take interest in how data is generated in these fields Data is often collected by a market participant or a self-regulatory body Such bodies may often serve the interests of their members; it may make sense to shift critical data functions away from them towards neutral bodies that have no stake in financial market outcomes Exchanges are vital sources of data: this is one more reason why the ownership and governance of exchanges is a major issue that should concern policy-makers When an exchange is conflicted by profit motivethere are incentives to undermine the integrity of information coming out of it Better methodologies need to be put in place to improve the statistical system underlying finance Regulators need to engage in oversight of the methods and operational aspects of these information products The mechanical transplantation of methods used in the West may often not be appropriate in India Even governments may misrepresent data on different macroeconomic variables to present a favourable picture of the economy In India it is sometimes suspected that data such as the Index of Industrial Production and GDP are being wrongly reported Revisions of past data downwards show higher growth in current periodsoften strengthening this suspicion The independence of the data-collection agency is crucial if the data is to be credible In recent times there has been enormous unhappiness over the high volatilityfrequent mistakes and repeated revisions in production data in India If data is being collected and released by the governmentwhich stands to benefit in some ways from itand it keeps undergoing these frequent changesit is difficult to have faith in the numbers being released An important lesson from the Libor scandal is the importance of independent oversight of data collectionmethods and release The writer is a professor at the

News THE Maharashtra government splurged Rs 52 crore over the last five years on renovation and maintenance of the sprawling official bungalows of ministers A Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India report presented to the state legislature on Wednesday has observed that this expenditure was nearly 10 times above the prescribed norms In fact the CAG has remarked that the bungalows in question could have been newly constructed at a lesser cost Share This Article Related Article The CAG report also raps the government for overlooking “urgent repairs” to some unsafe and dilapidated residential quarters of the police and resident doctors a girls’ hostel an ashram school a district prison and the premises of a small causes court The CAG has accessed records of the expenditure on maintenance and repairs of the ministerial bungalows between 2010 and 2015 which includes the period the BJP-led state government has been in power (since October 2014) The ministerial bungalows are all located in South Mumbai’s plush Malabar Hill area “The scrutiny of records in the Mumbai Presidency Division (of the public works department) revealed that the actual maintenance and repairs expenditure incurred on 15 residential buildings (read ministerial bungalows) during 2010-15 was six to 20 times the prescribed financial norms” the CAG has observed Spend on upkeep of ministerial bungalows in last 5 years was 10 times over limit: CAG An expenditure statement annexed to the CAG report lists that as per stipulated norms the “maximum permissible expenditure” that the government could have incurred on the upkeep of these buildings was Rs 53 crore which is nearly ten times lower than the total expenditure incurred in this period With the financial norms in this regard last revised in 2005 the CAG has said it had even considered a 20 per cent annual escalation in the limits prescribed while computing the maximum permissible expenditure In a bid to further underscore the extent of the splurge the CAG compared the expenditure on the upkeep of bungalows to the “cost of new construction of the building of the same built-up area” Considering that the government itself has prescribed a construction cost of Rs 28500 per sq m for building new properties in the Mumbai region the CAG has remarked that “these 15 buildings could have been constructed at a cost of Rs 37 crore” “The actual expenditure incurred on maintenance and repairs was one to three times the cost of construction of new buildings of the same built-up area” the CAG has said Between 2010 and 2015 the highest spends on maintenance and repairs were incurred on Puratan (Rs 35 crore) Meghdoot (Rs 325 cr) Parnakuty (Rs 323 cr) Satpuda (Rs 308 cr) Sewasadan (Rs 31 cr) Chitrakut (Rs 25 cr) Ramtek (Rs 27 cr) Jetwan (Rs 277 cr) and Deogiri (Rs 251 cr) The big splurge coincides with the period when successive chief ministers called for austerity measures on account of the state’s poor financial health The debt on the state exchequer has crossed the Rs 33 lakh crore mark in 2015-16 Simultaneously the CAG has pointed out that demands raised for repairs of four dilapidated buildings in South Mumbai — police quarters near Pickett Road two residential buildings inside the JJ Hospital premises and the Small Causes Court building — remained “unattended” Requests for similar urgent repairs sought by a government-run girls’ hostel in Nagpur a public ashram school in Beed and the Parbhani district prison were ignored too The state government in its response to the CAG audit has accepted that expenditure over the prescribed norms was incurred on the 15 bungalows but it appeared to justify the expenditure by arguing that “there was a need to revise the norms” Among other strictures passed against the PWD the CAG has also observed that excess funds to the tune of Rs 1281 crore over admissible limits were released to it during the five years Again the presidency division topped this irregularity — Rs 445 crore in excess over five years The government said “The division boasts of several VVIP and VIP buildings including heritage buildings which require maintenance” The CAG has
