Government ne bataya ki Indian High Commission ( in Colombo ) ne Sri Lanka ke offer ko approve krdiya hai .

Pr abhi Indian foreign ministry ( New Delhi ) ne is pr koi response nahi diya .

Why Sri Lanka offered deep sea port to India and japan ?

 

srilanka's India fist approach
China ki regional influence ko balance krne ke liye Sri Lanka ne ye offer diya .

Sri Lanka ne Chinese company ko 99 years ke liye Hambantota port lease pr de diya tha .

Iske liye Sri Lanka ne India ko hi priority di thi pr baawjood iske India ne refuse krdiya tha . 

Hambantota port  lease pr lene ke baad Beijing ne apni influence increase krne ke liye ” debt traps ” use kiye jisse globally fear increase hua .

India aur USA ne Chinese foothold ke against apna concern dikhaya kyonki ye Beijing ko Indian Ocean mein militarily advantage dega .

Is move se niji banks ki importance aur business increase hoga .

Private banking ki efficiency standards high hone se customers ki convenience bdhegi .

Ab Reserve Bank of India pr private banking sector  ko government business related authorisation dene ke liye koi obstruction nahi hai .

 

Critic’s take on this

 

Is move ko critics government ki big corporates  ko favor krne ki nazar se dekh rhe hain . 

Unka view hai ki isse niji banks sirf government business ki upper layer ki functioning ko hi support krenge . 

Niji banks social welfare schemes ki distribution bhi sahi se nahi krenge .
