The Babudom is in for another big reshuffle this week. If sources are to be believed, officers of the Indian Revenue Service could be transferred in a major shake-up. Sources also told Tehelka that some IRS officers have started lobbying lucrative spots. Earlier last week, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) transferred many senior Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officers of Income Tax Cadre & posted them at different wings of Income Tax across India.
The Finance secretary is expected to meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley this week and initiate the transfer proceedings. The Modi government has completed one year at the Center but corruption prevails unabated. The onus lies on the BJP-led government to apply the Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan in the bureaucratic setup as well and cleanse the system of malpractices. Lobbying and corrupt practices involved in landing lucrative jobs has been part and parcel of the occupation for a long time.
