bureaucrat allegedly used three businessmen including a jeweller and a lottery shop owner to “round trip his funds” (Representational Image) Top News The probe into the Disproportionate Assets (DPA) case by the state Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) against Vikas Rasal CEO of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Iron and Steel Market Committee has pegged his net worth at Rs 15- 20 crore claimed ACB sources This the sources claimed is allegedly “208 per cent more than his known sources of income” The ACB has also found that the bureaucrat allegedly used three businessmen including a jeweller and a lottery shop owner to “round trip his funds” Earlier this month a case under Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 was registered against the senior Maharashtra government official at the Kalamboli police station This came after sleuths from the Income Tax (I-T) Department on July 7 apprehended Rasal with Rs 6580 lakh of alleged unaccounted cash at the city airport while he was travelling to Delhi on an Air India flight According to a source ACB sleuths have recovered a diary noting from a suburban jeweller who is one of the three businessmen who allegedly helped Rasal launder his money The noting written in a ‘coded-language’ pertains to the details of the alleged transactions between Rasal and the jeweller amounting to Rs 16 crore “One of the three persons allegedly approached by Rasal to round trip his funds is a Vile-Parle based jeweller We have recovered a diary from him in which he has mentioned details of his transactions with Rasal in coded language We have cracked the code” said an official The police have also questioned a lottery shop owner from whom Rasal allegedly bought a lottery ticket and “won” Rs 22 crore sources add “He claims to have won a lottery of Rs 22 crore but our investigations have revealed that he did not win any lottery He just colluded with the lottery shop owner who in lieu of a payment declared him the lottery winner to help him launder his black money” said the officer The sleuths have also questioned a third businessmen who deals in cash transactions and who allegedly helped Rasal launder his “black money” “He employed a simple modus operandi of using businessmen dealing in cash transactions to channel his black money This helped him evade scrutiny by I-T authorities” claimed the official Another senior official told The Indian Express that Rasal has nine properties including two in Mumbai and the others in Kolhapur Pune and Talegaon “These properties are benami and a thorough probe into their purchase and title is underway” alleged the official Rasal was supervising operations of the Kalamboli Steel market yard — a wholesale market for steel and iron He was due for promotion to IAS cadre “This is a DPA case and therefore we won’t probe if he misused his position Our probe will only concentrate on gathering evidence to prove that his assets and the cash found with him are 208 per cent more than his known sources of income” said the official Maharashtra ACB acting Director General of Police Vivek Phansalkar confirmed the developments and said that investigations are underway Calls and text messages sent to Rasal

Top News Once in a while a major disruption or discontinuity happens which has huge consequences In 2007 the internet and the mobile phone came together in a whole new product called the smartphone This phone with its own operating system such as the iOS or Android could support over the top (OTT) applications The messaging solution for the smartphone did not come from the giant telecom or internet companies Instead it came from WhatsApp a start-up WhatsApp does 30 billion messages a day whereas all the telecom companies put together do 20 billion SMS messages per day Such is the power of disruption Such a “WhatsApp moment” is now upon us in Indian banking This discontinuity has been caused by several things coming together Smartphones are growing dramatically and are expected to reach a penetration of 700 million by 2020 Over 1 billion Indian residents now have Aadhaar an online biometric identity The government promoting financial inclusion through the Jhan Dhan Yojana has led to over 200 million new bank accounts being opened With the RBI giving licences to over 20 new banks including small banks and payment banks the competitive intensity of the sector is set to increase One can visualise a future where every adult Indian has an Aadhaar number a smartphone and a bank account Already over 280 million Indian residents have an Aadhaar-linked bank account and around 1 billion direct benefit transfer (DBT) transactions have happened whose value is in the billions of dollars On top of this a set of powerful open and programmable capabilities that are collectively referred to as the “India Stack” by the think-tank iSPIRT has been created over the last seven years Aadhaar provides online authentication using one’s fingerprint or iris which can be done from anywhere This can make transactions “presence less” The e-KYC (know your customer) feature of Aadhaar enables a bank account to be opened instantly just by using the Aadhaar number and one’s biometric The e-sign feature enables online documents to be digitally signed with Aadhaar The “digital locker” system enables the storage of such electronic documents safely and securely All this can make the entire banking process “paperless” The final two layers of the “India Stack” have great relevance to the future of banking The Unified Payment Interface (UPI) layer a product built by the National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) a non-profit company collectively owned by banks and set up in 2009 will revolutionise payments and accelerate the move towards a “cashless” economy So “pushing” or “pulling” money from a smartphone will be as easy as sending or receiving an email This product from NPCI is the latest in several payment systems that they have developed from the National Financial Switch National Automated Clearing House and RuPay cards to the Aadhaar Payment Bridge the Aadhaar-enabled Payment System and IMPS a real-time payment system The move to a “cashless” economy will be accelerated by the Aadhaar-enabled biometric smartphones So credential checking in banking will move from “proprietary” approaches (debit card and PIN) to “open” approaches (mobile phone and Aadhaar authentication) As such the holy grail of one-click two-factor authentication now available only to giants like Apple will be available to kids in a garage to develop innovative solutions Finally as India goes from being a data-poor to a data-rich economy in the next two to three years the electronic consent layer of the “India Stack” will enable consumers and businesses to harness the power of their own data to get fast convenient and affordable credit Such a use of digital footprints will bring millions of consumers and small businesses (who are in the informal sector) to join the formal economy to avail affordable and reliable credit As data becomes the new currency financial institutions will be willing to forego transaction fees to get rich digital information on their customers The elimination of these fees will further accelerate the move to a cashless economy as merchant payments will also become digital This will also shift the business models in banking from low-volume high-value high-cost and high fees to high-volume low-value low-cost and no fees This will lead to a dramatic upsurge in accessibility and affordability and the market force of customer acquisition and the social purpose of mass inclusion will converge These gale winds of disruption and innovation brought upon by technology regulations and government action will fundamentally alter the banking industry Payments liabilities and assets will undergo a dramatic transformation as switching costs reduce and incumbents are threatened As the insightful report from Credit-Suisse has so well explained there is a $ 600 billion market capitalisation opportunity waiting to be created in the next 10 years This will be shared between existing public and private banks the new banks and new-age NBFCs It may even go to non-banking platform players which use the power of data to fine-tune credit risk and pricing and make money from customer ownership and risk arbitrage The public sector banks which occupy the commanding heights of the economy with a 70 per cent market share will be particularly challenged Even as they deal with the inheritance of their losses they will have to cope with and master enormous digital disruption This will require their owners the government to give them the autonomy and freedom to experiment and innovate To quote Shakespeare “There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads on to fortune” The $ 600-billion opportunity is here The WhatsApp revolution went unnoticed by incumbents Normally such disruptive changes (like bubbles) are only recognised after they have happened In this case the forces of change are evident and can be anticipated The opportunity for the banking sector has been called and it is equally accessible to incumbents both in the public and private sector to the new banks to the NBFCs and the tech companies The future will belong to those who show speed imagination and the boldness to embrace change The writer is ex-chairman of the Unique Identification Authority of India This article was written as foreword to a Credit-Suisse report on the Indian banking sector

about Like why did Amita chachi’s youngest son choose to become a bawarchi instead of something respectable like his older brothers who are both software engineers Why did Ranjeet and Somya’s daughter break off her engagement with the lovely well-settled chartered accountant who is from such a good family And did you know that Archana has failed to get through to the Civil Services again Gossip is the fuel that revs up families at weddings and festivals and makes everyone feel like they are one big unit as they speculate over which cousin has started fertility treatments for that desperately needed child and which uncle lost all his money playing the market But there are certain things that we never talk about We never talk about how each time a family member brings up the question of our singleness or childlessness they make us feel a little less than what we actually are We don’t bring up decades-old resentments stemming from decisions that our parents took for their convenience and which hurt us in ways they never even tried to understand and the feelings of guilt that arise each time we look at our children and remember how impatient we were with them when all they wanted was some attention Very often we don’t want to admit – even to ourselves – that the family we grew up in isn’t perfect and that they hurt us every day in ways they are still to comprehend let alone acknowledge and that each time a parent or a sibling or a grandparent rebuked us ignored us lied to us or laughed at our fears they chipped away at our self-esteem We stew in secret resentful that our personhood was damaged and yet we’re also ashamed of this We worry that perhaps it’s something we did Maybe we weren’t lovable enough or good enough and that in other seemingly “perfect” families such things wouldn’t happen Also Read |Before Dear Zindagi watch Alia Bhatt’s first audition video and you will love her all the more Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi brings up these deeply personal doubts and worries that each of us nurses within beautifully with the story of Kaira (a superb Alia Bhatt) who is a talented cinematographer well on the path towards a successful career and who comes from a stable loving – and yes “perfect” seeming – family She’s earning enough to live alone in an expensive city like Mumbai she has friends who are supportive of her and a family that lives elsewhere but which clearly cares for her and is largely supportive of her independence But Kiara is also damaged in ways that she doesn’t fully understand; this keeps her from being able to form a stable romantic relationship and it makes her snap at her parents with barely concealed impatience All of this it turns out comes from feelings of being abandoned when she was a child and as her therapist Dr Jehangir Khan (played by a deliciously grizzled Shah Rukh Khan) says she has allowed her past to blackmail her present which then keeps her beautiful future at bay Also Read |After Dear Zindagi release Alia

sometimes people need therapy to be able to live their lives with more joy and empathy – both towards other and towards themselves Perhaps Never mind that Dr Khan – or Jug as he is known in the film – talks like a self help book What matters is that at the heart of this film is the struggle of one girl to come to terms with a wounded past and how she manages to do this with the help of her dimaag
