"If we were to shut down the Mauritius route (for investments), there is a real danger that we will destroy Private Equity in the country. And it's not just PE; the recent tax claims against MNCs like Shell, Microsoft and Nokia pose a much bigger question on overall FDI.

But can we as a country - with our deficits running so high - afford it? We are playing with fire here."
