Modi 2.0 readying a crackdown on GST fraud and direct tax fraud

The government dismissed 12 senior income-tax officers on charges of corruption and professional misconduct on June 10 and followed it up with another round of clean-up on June 18, when 15 senior income-tax officers, accused of corruption, were made to compulsorily retire. 
Those sacked included officials in the ranks of principal commissioners, commissioners, additional commissioners, deputy commissioners, joint commissioners and assistant commissioners. 
In its first term, the government brought about a major policy change for lateral entry of domain experts into the bureaucracy. The govt hired nine joint secretary-ranked officials from the private sector; including a partner in KPMG.
