An Indian sub-prime crisis in the making? - Rohit Azad, Hindu
The Indian corporate sector is grappling with a severe bad debt crisis, and as a result, the banks (public sector banks) are increasingly getting saddled with non-performing assets. Calling it India’s sub-prime crisis might be an exaggeration but I would just like to add ‘not yet’! Moreover in conditions such as these, with the global economic crisis in the background, it’s better to be cautious rather than looking back at the data when it’s all over.

Demonetisation discussion to continue in Budget Session - Hari Shankar Vyas, Pioneer

Budget blues - Meghnad Desai, Financial Express
By the time the public and the commentariat talk about the Budget, it has been finalised, printed and gone beyond changes. Still, we speak of it, express our demands and concerns and eagerly hope the finance minister is listening. Budgeting is a strange ritual, more about accounting than economics. 
Tax laws are weighing down Digital India - Sandeep Ladda & Kunal Wadhwa, Business Line
The rise of e-commerce and internet businesses, the increased use of smartphones, growing data consumption and the latest buzz around digital payments have helped the Indian economy march on the path of Digital India.

Only certainty in 2017 will be uncertainty - MG Arun, Mail Today
