Review of Agriculture June 1969 Reply C H Hanumantha Rao THE extension of my welfare analysis by T N Srinivasan and P K Bardhan is useful as it provides a method for identifying empirically the income groups in rural (urban) areas who may be better or worse off than their urban (rural) counterparts, given the assumption of identical preferences. One of the main points of my welfare analysis was that the large expenditure groups may not experience a real income advantage in rural areas as compared to their urban counterparts. The estimates of Srinivasan and Bardhan confirm this proposition as they conclude that "for a given price difference the higher expenditure groups spending a larger proportion on more expensive urban goods are worse off relative to their urban counterparts''. It is important to note this because many of the prevailing studies on tax burden assume that real incomes of the rural rich are higher than those of their urban counterparts.

Management Reporting System in Public Undertakings

in Public Undertakings parting system for public undertakings, we would have to clearly identify the managerial hierarchy and the objectives of public undertakings. Admittedly, a great deal has been written on both these subjects, much of which appears to be coloured by political and economic biases. If we accept the definition that management involves -essentially the process of relating resources to objectives for producing the desired result, clearly, all persons who have decision-making authority in terms of all the three variables, i c, resources, objectives and the operations carried on for achieving the desired goals, would be 'managers' for purposes of the proposed system.

Problems of Buffer Stocks

Review of Agriculture March 1969 siderations, possibilities may need to be explored to make the land revenue 'progressive' in its incidence. Illustratively, this may be achieved by instituting a graduated scale of surcharge on land revenue; land holdings below a certain level may be exempt and on other operational holdings a graded surcharge according to the size of hold- ings may be introduced. The system of land revenue administration as it has existed for several years is a tried and easily recognisable system. The system has developed 'built-in' methods of granting Remissions' during 'baa times' also.
