Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Austerity program under way BOMBAY (CP) A leading Bombay tycoon comes away hungry from a dinner given by a federal minister. Public fountains in most Indian cities are not switched on even on busy Saturday nights. Government clerks have to use both sides of the paper and stenographers must make their typewriter ribbons last twice as long as before. When a minister visits a village, only a single of- ficial is there to receive him as against a dozen before. These are among the changes brought about by India's massive austerity drive designed to cope with the difficult economic situation. Federal finance ministry officials expect a national saving of nearly million if the current measures are observed scrupulously. The idea, as Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her cabinet colleagues have been pointing out, is not only to conserve resources but to demonstrate to poor workers and peasants that their hardships are shared by citizens at all levels. A multi-point austerity plan is being enforced all over India at the instance of Mrs. Gandhi. Only visiting foreign VIPs od the rank of minister and above will be officially entertained capitals. Indian government of- ficials have also been told to limit expenditure drastically on entertaining diplomats and foreign visitors. One New Delhi of- ficial had to cancel a dinner he had planned for a dozen diplomats at short notice. There has been a sharp drop in the number of government cars on streets of the capital "Every yard of travel in a government car should be fully accounted for." says a senior education ministry official. Mrs. Gandhi -has also asked senior government officials to cut down on foreign travel. As one official sadly remarked: "We can no longer to to New York or Toronto to study traffic problems or fly to Tokyo to see how the Japanese are tackling the pollution threat." The austerity drive has immobilized thousands of government officials ac- customed to embark on "inspection tours" on the slightest pretext. Millions of dollars are spent every year on this account. It is not uncommon for officials in some ministries to be on tour in the provinces for 15 to 20 days in a month. President V. V. Giri has volunteered a 10-per-cent cut in his salary to set an example to the nation and many cabinet ministers and MPs have followed suit. Sears 38 99 104-piece ensemble 48-pc.
