The Relation Between Policy Rates and Exchange Rates: An Indian Perspective
C N M Lavanya and Shivappa

There is an inextricable link between money market and foreign exchange (forex) market. The policy rates of India consist of the repo and reverse repo rates, in addition to the Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) rate and bank rate. This study examines the changes (hike/reduction) in policy rates against the backdrop of the prevalent global and domestic scenarios. It also maps the changes in spot rates of Indian Rupee-US Dollar (INR-USD) and Indian Rupee-Euro (INR-EUR) and the forward premium/discount of 1-month USD for the time period January 2011 to September 2016. It elaborates the spread analysis for the repo rate and reverse repo rate on the one hand, and MSF rate and bank rate, on the other. The repo rate has a high degree of correlation with reverse repo rate and a moderately high degree of association with MSF rate. Bank rate and MSF rate have been closely aligned for some time now.

Financial Sustainability: A Study on the Current Status of Farmer Producer Companies in Northeast India
Shivam Kakati and Arup Roy

This paper assesses whether the Farmer Producer Companies (FPCs) of Northeast India are financially healthy and will continue to work in the foreseeable period. The study analyzes financial sustainability of four FPCs based on their economic performance, bankruptcy, sustainable growth, net financial liabilities, asset sustainability, auditors’ comment on CARO items, Working Capital Cycle (WCC), and Cash Flow from Operating (CFFO) activities. The study included only those companies which were operating for more than two years and had published their reports to Ministry of Corporate Affairs, India. The study used secondary data collected from the website of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, India, for the financial year 2015-16. AAPCL and YMPCL are found to be financially sustainable, while GSPCL and BTPCL might face survival issues in the near future. GSPCL could be considered moderately financially unsustainable, while BTPCL has high chances of nearing bankruptcy in the near future, if the management does not try and solve their financial problem.

Sabbineni Poojitha and Rajeshwari Panigrahi

The present study is undertaken to identify the problems and the profitability of non-contract poultry farmers in Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh. Data is collected from 40 non-contract farmers in Visakhapatnam district using snow ball sampling technique, and it is a descriptive research. Primary data is collected for the study through interview using a pretested questionnaire. The questionnaire consists of open-ended and closed-ended questions. Likert scale is used for quantifying most of the qualitative variables, and detailed costing information is collected through open-ended questions in the form of cost sheet. The data collected is tabulated and analyzed statistically by using Likert scale, mean value analysis, one-way ANOVA, Friedman rank test, correlation, multiple regression and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) techniques. Among the constraints identified, unavailability of chicks was the major constraint, followed by lack of insurance, cost of labor and labor problems, lack of government support, high price of raw materials, inadequate financial support due to the high risk associated with the business, and delay in payment by retailers/wholesalers.

Universalization of Life Insurance Scheme: A Feasibility Study
Manu Jain and Lalitagouri Kulkarni

This paper studies the possibility of introducing universal benefits of life insurance for whole population without any discrimination or discretion based on age, occupation or physical variation. However, the financial burden or aggregate cost to government for equal benefit for every individual needs to be considered. This paper explains the concept of cash value of life insurance based on mortality and age of the population and presents an argument and approach for universalization of life insurance scheme.
