    Almost all IT officers are corrupt and demand bribe even when they are unable to find anything in the file. It is shame on Income Tax Departement and all these goverment officers are bakasoors

  2. Amit Bajaj Advocate says:

    ‘THIS OFFICER DOES NOT DEMAND/ACCEPT BRIBES or, THIS HALL DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY STAFF WHO DO DEMANDS?ACCEPTS BRIBES.’

    Great idea

  3. TDS says:

    Is there more than 10 per cent of officers of all ranks and all others dealing with IT department in other offices/organisations taken together who DOES NOT DEMAND AND TAKE BRIBES? This news is irrelevant and it does not amount even to a drop of water in the ocean. It would be rather better if outside every officer’s room/halls where staff sit (mostly as their superiors’ agents) a Board is put up declaring as under:THIS OFFICER DOES NOT DEMAND/ACCEPT BRIBES or, THIS HALL DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY STAFF WHO DO DEMANDS?ACCEPTS BRIBES.

    Can the govt. showthis courage which is the basis of TRANSPARENCY?
