In a drive to clean up bureaucracy, Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs (CBIC) has compulsorily retired 22 senior officers of the rank of Superintendent/AO due to corruption and other charges, news agency ANI reported today.

A CBIC official, quoted by ANI, "We have recently taken the bold step of compulsorily retiring a significant number of tax officials, and we will not tolerate this type of behaviour."

Earlier in June, the government had compulsorily retired 15 senior officers of the central indirect tax administration who were facing charges of corruption and illegal gratification. The 15 officials of the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) retired are of the ranks of principal commissioner, commissioner, additional commissioner and deputy commissioner.


In the same month, the Narendra Modi administration had compulsorily retired 10 senior officers of the direct tax administration. Some of these officials also face charges of extortion. They also have cases pending against them filed by various central agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).
