    This is just a miniscule of the mountain of … black money generated at Govt levels, courtesy : by the Govt Officers entrusted with precious responsibility such as the ITO at the grass roots level… ALL the officers of CBDT should be sent for training in vedanta to desist from adharmic work both inside and outside their respective offices. It is very easy to “hide the Bad Money”.But not from the Gods.
    This article, an eye wash, does not evoke any sensation as the modus operandi is well established among the officers.
