An­other top ad­viser quits, Arvind Subra­ma­nian to go back to the US

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

It seems the gov­ern­ment is not able to re­tain world renowned tal­ent. af­ter rbi’s raghu­ram ra­jan and NITI aayog’s arvind Pana­gariya, chief eco­nomic ad­viser arvind subra­ma­nian has also put in his pa­pers. cit­ing “press­ing per­sonal mat­ters”, subra­ma­nian wants to re­turn to the us. He has re­signed when only a few months were left for his ten­ure to end. The trio of economists have held key po­si­tions in the gov­ern­ment and have helped in for­mu­lat­ing im­por­tant poli­cies. Their de­ci­sion to quit, each cit­ing per­sonal rea­sons, has raised a sense of un­ease and dis­com­fort. dur­ing his ten­ure as an ad­viser, subra­ma­nian has made some im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tions, such as in the roll­out of the goods and ser­vices Tax (gst). But he was also vo­cal and frank enough to not lend sup­port to the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion on de­mon­eti­sa­tion in 2016. He sent his res­ig­na­tion to arun Jait­ley, who is re­cu­per­at­ing af­ter a surgery, and not to the ‘act­ing’ fi­nance min­is­ter, Piyush Goyal.
