Modi to Slash Through Red Tape of "License Raj"

    The License Raj is not a holdover from India’s colonial past but a purely post-colonial phenomenon, see, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Licence_Raj. The biggest problem in rationalizing it is the army of bureaucrats administering it and the other beneficiaries of the corruption it engenders.

    The “license raj” is the perfect place to begin opening the doors to honest people in India. I see it as a Hindu thing, as fashionable as it may be to blame it on the Brits.
