"One of the things I have learnt about the Government here is that between what you are told you must not do and what you are told you must do there is a huge area for opportunistic behaviour and to be able to do things", says one of India's premier economists and the Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian. He also agrees that more people need to be convinced to pay tax and he believes that anyone who can pay 10 per cent tax is not "middle class". He claims that India doesn't need 'big bang reforms' as it isn't in any kind of crisis. He also terms Indian industry to be like "Abhimanyu's Chakravyuh" vis-a-vis policy implementation and that the steel sector is one victim of this phenomenon. Commenting on Vijay Mallya defaulting on his loans to various Indian banks, Mr Subramanian says, "Any market system can be successful if those who make mistakes need to pay for it".
