already upon us For examplethe German Bundestag is in a fight to the finish over a solution to the economic crisis that has already been overtaken by events The crisis has moved far beyond the flawed Greek programme; that the euro cannot survive in its present form; that many of our banks are close to insolvency; and that a far larger rescue fund is needed to stabilise the euro zone European leaders are yet to come to terms with the sheer enormity of the operation that has to be mounted Two trillion euros are needed just to recapitalise banks and finance the borrowing needs of GreeceSpainPortugalIreland and Italy until 2014 This is without parallel in world economic historyamounting to about 3 per cent of world GDP That would dwarf previous Latin American and Asian bailouts and dramatically exceed the G-20s trillion-dollar underpinning of the International Monetary Fund in 2009 The European leaders should also know by now that many of the rescue plans currently in vogue simply will not work The 440 billion-euro European Finance and Stability Facility (EFSF)on which the Germans are votingis far too small A new variant floated in Washington last weekend would take the EFSFs euro440 billion and add European Central Bank money to lever support up to between euro1 trillion and euro2 trillion The ECB has income from its banking operations and can act quickly But the bank is already providing substantial liquidity and will not be persuaded to go beyond its narrow anti-inflation remit unless it has the support of the International Monetary Fund and the world financial community Eighty per cent of current IMF lending already goes to Europeand the Fund has only $385 billion in additional lending capacitya fraction of what is needed Moreover the IMF is not likely to levy its members once more just to finance Europe There may be a way throughhowever In the 1970swhen the IMF was stretchedit borrowed from the oil states Today it could borrow from them and from Chinawhich would undoubtedly prefer lending to the IMF thansaydirectly to Italy Of courseemergency intervention by the ECB and IMF is not an alternative to structural reform across Europebut a bulwark to it Indeed the only conditionality that has actually worked in Europe is IMF conditionalityand the fund should give European leaders a 12-month deadline to agree and implement a long-term alternative to short-term ECB/IMF financing in the form of fiscal coordinationeuro bonds and fiscal transfers Could European leaders ever agree on such a radical course Can Europe lead the marketssurprising them by agreeing to a comprehensive programme that combines fiscalbanking and supply-side reform With its high levels of conditionalitythe IMF is not a soft optionbut it has the advantage of reassuring Germany that it is not alone in bearing the costs of rescue; of reassuring France that its AAA credit rating has at least a chance of surviving; and reassuring the rest of the world a full-blooded new recession can be averted But time is already running out on this option Ifin the next monththe downturn threatens to go globalthe rest of the world will back away from helping

officer Samiullah Ansari who is on an “unauthorised leave” for over five years According to the state government he went on a study leave and instead joined universities in Boston and Salem in the US as assistant professor The state government had told Ahmedabad branch of the Central Administration Tribunal (CAT) that Ansari “defrauded $18000” provided to him for completion of his PhD abroad but the MHA in its reply remained silent on the matter In its reply to the CAT earlier this month the MHA said the officer is not “interested in continuing in service with the government and is only trying in one way or another to prolong eventuality of his deemed resignation…” Ansari had moved before the tribunal after his VRS application was rejected by the state government on the ground that he was on an unauthorised leave since September 2010 and hence he has not completed 20 years in service to be able to get early retirement and post-retirement benefits The government had issued notices to Ansari stating that his absence for the past five years amounts to “deemed resignation” The MHA’s reply — filed by GC Yadav deputy secretary MHA through lawyer Roopal Patel — also stated that Ansari’s petition does not deserve to be entertained Ansari moved CAT through his father-in-law and retired IAS officer S K Saiyed after his VRS application was rejected by the state The state government had opposed the move stating that he was not only on an unauthorised leave but also “defrauded the state as he misused public money to the tune of $18000” In its reply last month the state government stated that Ansari went on a study leave but joined universities in Boston and Salem in the US as assistant professor The reply also said that Ansari owes to the state $18000 which was provided to him for PhD abroad The state government told the CAT that it had to track Ansari through “Google” and “Facebook” It stated that “it came to the knowledge of the department that after completion of PhD he has joined the Criminal Justice Department at Northeastern University Boston as a professor He is also working as Assistant Professor in Salem State University” On the other hand the MHA reply was silent on state government’s allegation that Ansari a 1992-batch IPS officer “defrauded $18000” The MHA reply stated: “The applicant (Ansari) has remained unauthorised absent for more than 5 years and had been given numerous opportunities to produce relevant documents… but the applicant failed to do so” In 2002 Ansari went to Indian Institute of Management Bangalore for a one-year course and returned in 2003 On April 15 2005 he applied for a sabbatical to pursue a three-year PhD in Criminal Justice and Policy Making in North Eastern University Boston After several
