Dear

You are aware that the Government of India has created 12 posts of Income Tax Ombudsman at 12 stations, namely New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Bhopal and Kochi under the Income Tax Ombudsman Guidelines 2010. Selection to the post of Income Tax Ombudsman is likely to be made for some locations which are likely to be vacant shortly.

2. The post of Income Tax Ombudsman is in the HAG+ Pay Scale of Rs. 75500-80000/-. Therefore, it is requested that names of suitable officers fulfilling the eligibility criteria mentioned in the Income Tax Ombudsman Guidelines, 2010 (copy enclosed) indicating their preferred locations may be sent by 29.04.2011 to enable selection of Income Tax Ombudsmen. In case no preference of locations is indicated, it would be presumed that he/she is willing to be posted in any of the locations. The applications received after the due date will not be considered and are liable to be rejected. The nominations should be accompanied with Cadre clearance, History of postings, Vigilance clearance and ACR dossiers.
3. Relevant provisions regarding eligibility, pay scale and tenure of Ombudsman are reproduced from the Income Tax Ombudsman guidelines, 2010 below:-

“3.11. The Ombudsman selected shall be a person who has held a post in the Government of India in the HAG scale of pay of Rs.  67,000-79,000/-(pre-revised pay scale of Rs. 22,400-525­24,500) on regular basis for at least one year and shall preferably be a resident of the city where he/she is proposed to be appointed. He/she shall be a serving officer (as on the last date for receipt of applications which is 29th April, 2011) preferably of the Indian Revenue Service (Income Tax). If a suitable officer from that service is not available, officers of equivalent grade of any other Group ‘A’ service of the Central Government may be appointed. When appointed as Ombudsman, the officer, if he/she is still in service under the Government of India, shall seek retirement from Government service, before entering upon the office as an Ombudsman.”

4. You are also requested to inform the applicants that if they intend to withdraw their candidature for any reason, they may do so on or before 31.05.2011. In case they are considered and selected for appointment by the ACC, they should not decline the appointment. If they withdraw the application after 31.05.2011 or if they decline the appointment or if they do not join within 30 days of the order of appointment, they will not be considered for any further appointment outside their cadre for three years. They will also then be debarred for consideration for appointment outside the cadre and in any Autonomous Body/Statutory Body/Regulatory Body for a period of three years. No further notice in this regard will be given to them.

    This is a white elephant. The officers are selected never on merits but on age plus “srvice ability”. In other words, lobbying and networking alone are the factors for getting these cosy posts for 2-3 years without any responsibility to do any work and answerability to none. App perks plus “seva” being ensured, these parasites start angling for further postings in those positions where one can be retained upto 65 years-through the same intense and throat-cutting networking and lobbying exercises. Let an independent committee investigate into the results of these non-performing liabilities of the GOI.
