not even know who the big boys in this club are orfor that matterwho their clients are If there is a big lesson to be learnt after the leaked tapes of lobbyist Niira Radias conversationsthen it is to seriously start thinking of reforming the loosely structured industry today And since it is not an organised industry in factfar from it self-regulation would be asking for too much The government needs to get its act together in exposing corruption through greater transparencytelling people who influenced policy and at what cost The rapidly growing Indian economy and a huge domestic market have thrown open phenomenal opportunities to businesses in the last decade or so Entrenched domestic corporate groupsglobal corporations and emerging companies are all vying for contracts in sectors ranging from road construction to power production The old-styled industry chambers and associations are hardly able to meet the needs and rising aspirations of such disparate groupsthough I would like to think India is big enough a marketplace for all to thrive This has forced businesses to engage lobbyists who directly interact with politicians and bureaucrats They may be organised as policy advocacy groups or hired as consultants with public relations firmsor even be hired by companies for specific tasks For the discerningit is amusing not the least discomforting when lobbyists try hard to mask their profession by swearing that it is policy advocacy that they are engaged in Journalists who cover Raisina Hill in New Delhi or secretariats in different states can often make sense of the motive behind particular arguments But less discerning laypersons can hardly figure out what goes on behind the scenes when public policies are framed They are frustrated only when there are exposes of money changing hands in award of contracts or licences This often leads to generalisationinvariably making demons out of lobbyists In Indiamany of the top 100 companies have ex-bureaucrats on their board of directors Nothing wrong with that There are others who join consulting firms and non-government organisations or civil society Nothing wrong again In factlobbyists or experts provide to policy-makers including bureaucratswho along with ministers wield enormous clout in India a good understanding of how a particular industry is likely to evolve in the future Andeven as they do thisthey try and influence government decisions on a variety of issuesincluding taxation and qualification criteria for entry into such marketsin a manner that suits them the most In the USlobbyists mostly lawyerswho are registered and required to make electronic disclosures of their finances engage with legislators who play a key role in framing laws There are about 1900 firmswith 11000 lobbyistsregistered in WashingtonDC The American media has been running stories about how lobbyists spent some $155 million to give shape to the financial reform bill They were representing the biggest Wall Street firmsunder a cloud after the global financial crisis in 2008 But what surprised me most was the quality of literature available to all taxpayers in the US Certainlythat will help them decide if they should elect the same candidate again The US realised the importance of overseeing the work of lobbyists way back in the late 1930s Over the yearsthere have been improvementsand in 1995 the US put in place the Lobbying Disclosure Act that attempted to expose corruption between those who made laws and lobbyists Several Capitol Hill scandals laterthe US passed legislationremarkably called the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007that not only requires lobbyists to make electronic disclosures of all their activities including financesbut also seeks to regulate their conduct Solobbyimg is not a dirty word in the US In factI would guesstaxpayers in the US owe it to lobbyists and their skills to get insider information on how big corporations influence legislation The European Unionthat has been slow to enact legislation on lobbyistshas had to move at double the speed To start withIndia can call upon policy advocacy groups a euphemism for lobbyists to register themselves with the government on a voluntary basis The industrywhich is haphazardly structuredneeds to be more organised But this has to be backed with strong intent and willingness to disclose to the general public how policies are made With the Right to Information Act already turning out to be a powerful tool in the hands of peoplethe government has to initiate second generation reforms in transparency and accountability that aims to uncover corruption Money spent by lobbyist groupstheir source of funding and the identity of their clients need to be mandatorily disclosed These also need to be made public There needs to be recognition that lack of lobbyism may lead to policy stasis in a country like India which is still building a larger institutional framework for governance The government does not necessarily have the intellectual bandwidth to make fool-proof policies without anybodys inputs Market players need to be consulted and a strong pitch by them through lobbyists is not to be frowned upon At the same timelobbying should not lead to policy or regulatory capture a phenomenon where the government or regulators get swayed by
