Seven Gurugram ETOs suspended for Rs 100 crore scam

Following an FIR that was file in July, seven Excise and Taxation officers posted in Gurugram, have been suspended and chargesheeted under Rule 7 of the Haryana Civil Services (Punishment and Appeal) Rules, 2016, for helping nine firms siphon off funds worth over Rs 100 crore from the state exchequer via bogus tax refund claims.

After the preliminary probe into the matter, government suspended ETOs Narendra Dhanda, Shobhini Mala, SK Singh, Vijender Dhull, Vikas Prashar, Sanjeev Saluja and Suneela Singh.

As the scam unfolded, investigations into the role of two Gurugram firms further revealed the involvement of 15 firms in Panipat district and two in Kaithal. These firms too submitted bogus claims for tax refund during transition from VAT to GST.

In view of the inter-state ramifications of the scam, CM Manohar Lal Khattar has ordered that the case be handed over to the State Vigilance Bureau (SVB) as recommended by the Additional Chief Secretary, Excise and Taxation, Sanjeev Kaushal.
