The former Governor pitched for a rating upgrade for India due to a number of steps taken by the government.

Commenting on the issue, former RBI Governor Bimal Jalan told the media, "The... question is that supposing you have large farms and you have an income from those farms which say exceeds certain high levels of income, then you can think about taxing that high level of income."
