Reshmi, Well, I thought I did help. Theoretically, it should be reasonable to estimate that 2-equation model with the link functions you describe, but I am not sure if -cmp- can invoke the CLAD estimator for a tobit model, so I would encourage you to check on that. The author of -cmp- is on the list, so he may chime in on that point. I might also suggest that you have a look at: Li, L., Simonoff, J.S., & Tsai, C.-L. (2007). Tobit model estimation and sliced inverse regression. Statistical Modelling, 7(2), 107-123. Holden, D. (2011). Testing for heteroskedasticity in the tobit and probit models.
