Sending across a stern message to bureaucrats taking kickbacks for facilitation tax evasion by companies, the Centre has sacked 15 senior tax officials facing probes in corruption cases. Last week the government had dismissed 12 senior income tax officers following charges of corruption, extortion and professional misconduct against them.

          The central government has dismissed 15 senior custom and central excise officers on the grounds of corruption and bribery in what appears to a second round of crackdown on revenue officials. The latest spate of dismissals involved high-ranking officials of the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs.

          Sources in the ministry said that the dismissed officers either had corruption cases already registered against them or were “involved” in bribery, extortion and disproportionate assets cases.

          Among those dismissed include Principal Commissioner Anup Srivastava, who was serving as Principal ADG (Audit) in the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) in Delhi, and Joint Commissioner Nalin Kumar, the order said.
