New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government’s zero-tolerance against corruption was visible to everyone when 22 senior officers of the rank of Superintendent/AO with the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) were compulsorily retired following corruption charges against them. Compulsory retirement is being implemented immediately to officials from different zones such as Nagpur, Bhopal, Chennai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Jaipur, Kolkata, Meerut, Mumbai and Chandigarh as these officers are currently facing CBI inquiry.  


The indirect taxes board has compulsorily retired officials from 12 zones. The sackings of these officers follow such a measure taken three months ago when the government had sacked 27 senior officials from the Indian Revenue Service (IRS), including 12 from CBDT.
