Health Economics Review, 2018
Background and Objective
The studies measured Out-of-Pocket Expenditure (OOPE) for hospital births previously suffer from serious data limitations. To overcome such limitations, we designed a hospital-based study for measuring the levels and factors of OOPE on maternity care for hospital births by its detailed components.
Data were collected from women for non-complicated deliveries 24-h before the survey and complicated deliveries 48-h prior to the survey at the hospital settings in Uttar Pradesh, India during 2014. The simple random sampling design was used in the selection of respondents. Bivariate analyses were used to estimate mean expenditure on Antenatal care services (ANCs), Delivery care and Total Maternity Expenditure (TME). Multivariate linear regression was employed to examine the factor associated with the absolute and relative share of expenditure in couple’s annual income on ANCs, delivery care, and TME.
The findings show that average expenditure on maternal health care is high ($155) in the study population. Findings suggest that factors such as income, place, and number of ANCs, type, and place of institutional delivery are significantly associated with both absolute and relative expenditure on maternity care. The likelihood of incidence of catastrophic expenditure on maternity care is significantly higher for women delivered in private hospitals (β = 2.427, p < 0.001) compared to the government hospital (β = 0). Also, it is higher among caesarean or forceps deliveries (β = 0.617, p < 0.01), deliveries conducted on doctor advise (β = 0.598, p < 0.01), than in normal deliveries (β = 0) and self or family planned deliveries (β = 0).
The findings of this study suggest that the OOPE on maternity care for hospital births reported in this study is much higher as it was collected with a better methodology, although with smaller sample size. Therefore, ongoing maternity benefit scheme in India in general and Uttar Pradesh in particular need to consider the levels of OOPE on maternity care and demand-side and supply-side factors determining it for a more effective policy to reduce the catastrophic burden on households and help women to achieve better maternity health outcomes in poor regional settings like Uttar Pradesh in India.

International Labour Review, Volume 156, Issue 3-4, December 2017
Since the start of economic reforms in 1991, India’s trade unions have found themselves increasingly excluded from the political process and marginalized in collective bargaining. Using survey and interview data from the Maharashtra affiliates of two national union federations, this article examines whether social partnership with employers is a viable option for Indian unions to regain influence and protect workers’ interests, as some analysts have advocated. Its findings indicate that despite Maharashtra’s supportive regulatory framework, which in theory should facilitate cooperative industrial relations, the realities of workplace employment relations – coupled with state indifference and adverse judicial interventions – weaken labour’s prospects for meaningful social partnership.

India Development Review (IDR), 13-March-2018
A common thread across the spectrum of India’s social sector organisations and the development professionals I have interacted with is a passion for social equality, a sense of purpose, and academic and professional skills required to advocate, innovate and contribute to improving lives of the marginalised in our society.
Also common is the glaring absence of voices from those very marginalised communities and historically underprivileged groups at funders summits, civil society forums, CSR conclaves, foundation boardrooms, and strategy sessions. …

The World Economy, Volume 41, Issue 1, January 2018
The collapse in global trade during the 2008–09 crisis has been widely studied using the developed nation(s) data. I use firm-level data from Indian manufacturers to show that: (a) Indian firms experience strong negative demand shocks concerning their exports to the USA and the EU, the effect being significantly higher in case of the USA. Results assert that 1% increase in the exposure towards the crisis-affected zones (the USA and the EU combined) reduces an average Indian manufacturing firm’s export earnings by 1.17%–1.36%; (b) trade in consumer non-durables and durables are the two most affected sectors, impact being higher for the latter; (c) evidence in support of similar effects throughout the size distribution of firms, with the effect being highest for small or the most vulnerable firms; (d) drop in demand, as a result of the 2008–09 crisis, only affects the high-exposure industries. My results are robust to IV analysis and a variety of checks.
