Estimation of Tax Leakage and its Impact on Fiscal Health in Kerala


  • Rakhe PB


This paper is an attempt to analyse the tax leakage in the broader context of fiscal crisis in Kerala, highlighting the relationship between the two. Tax leakage by causing a revenue drain may adversely affect the primary account position and thus may indirectly influence the fiscal sustainability of the state’s economy. This is the main thread of argument coming out of the paper. [Working Paper No. 347]
