The Mauritius Leaks- 200,000 leaked documents which essentially show how one country’s low tax rates were leveraged and misused by Multinational Companies to avoid taxes. How was the Indian economy impacted by years of such tax avoidance? If it was not illegal, then how was an India-Mauritius tax agreement misused? On this episode, Ritu Sarin and Sandeep Singh, who reported on the issue for the Indian Express as a part of the ICIJ global collaboration, join us to break down important points- the leaks and their significance, how an amendment to a tax treaty with Mauritius affected our FDIs, and how these leaks along with the Panama and Paradise papers have affected the offshore economy.
