Frontline's latest issue on the price-rise makes a substantial contribution to the field reports on neoliberalism across the country. Neoliberalism, as an academic subject, has attracted considerable literature in recent past. It may be of interest to readers, who wish to understand the subject, to consider India's experience in this regard.
My contributions to this issue include two pieces, one on the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal's order on why Bofors' then representative in India is liable to pay income tax on the commissions received by him, and the other on redefining torture, a comparison of the Rajya Sabha report and PLBS report on the anti-torture Bill, approved by Lok Sabha.
