The purpose of this thesis is to examine the role of government in encouraging fiscal compliance from the theoretical perspective of the ‘Ecology of Games’; and, both, in tandem with, as well as nuanced by, the analytical model of the ‘Design-Actuality Gap Framework’. Conceptual representations of human behaviour in formal complex institutions, located within Behavioural Economics and Political Game Theory, presuppose that it is possible for government agencies to strategically influence the behavioural preferences and the consumption patterns of individual actors and groups within society. This study, to illustrate the applicative value of the central theoretical precepts and constructs arrived at within the work, presents an empirical case concerned with the implementation and the use of an electronic property tax collection system in Bangalore, India developed between 1998 and 2008.
