3 senior IRS officers suspended over 'tax hike' report

Apr 28, 2020 08:50 IST

The centre on Monday suspended three senior Indian Revenue Service officers over the tax hike advice report. The govt said that they "misguided" their juniors and triggered panic by proposing tax hike in an "unauthorised" report to boost revenue amid the coronavirus lockdown. The officers - Prashant Bhushan, Prakash Dubey, Sanjay Bahadur - are also accused of creating policy uncertainty. The centre on Sunday rejected the report as an "act of indiscipline", and said an inquiry was being launched into why the report was shared with the public.
