मुंबई सर्विस टैक्स विभाग में भारी भ्रष्ठाचार , ट्रांसफर के नाम पर अंगद के पैर की तरह मुंबई में ही जमे है
Service tax department of Mumbai having huge corruption.The Class 1 officers lobby is rotating in 7 zones and not allowing to enter outside area officers at Mumbai. In the name of transfer they are shuffling in between Nariman Point , Parel, Andheri, Bandra, Navi Mumbai. The Class 1 officers lobby have captured key positions and they have understanding among themselves . Due this many scams of tax evasion never came in lime light. These corrupt officers also deny information in RTI because they are involved in conspiracy of tax evasion. Many assesses said that service tax inspectors approach them for bribe and settle with good envelop. Like Officers many inspectors, clerks have never transferred from Mumbai. Transfer policy for officers may be 2-3 years and for others is 4-5 years but many have never shifted to other cities. Errant officer RP Khandelwal Addl Commr ST3 transferred from Belapur to Parel and now at Andheri. Chief Commissioner Piyush Patnaik is not honest with his job and his associates are hiding information and suppressing complaints. It will not be surprise that huge amount may be feed to ministry level.
Due to this type of corruption govt. is increasing tax percentage every years and the income of ST officers also increasing.Only 1-2 officers seems to be honest of ST 1&2 and try to be transparent in public activity.
