Tax Bar To File Writ Against Non-Removal Of Alleged 'Corrupt' ITAT Member

The Rajasthan Tax Consultants Association and the Jaipur Tax Tribunal Bar have resolved to file a Writ Petition in the Hon’ble Rajasthan High Court to challenge the alleged inaction by the Government and the Hon’ble President of the ITAT against the alleged corrupt practices of the Hon’ble Accountant Member Shri. B. R. Jain, presently posted at the Jaipur Bench of the Tribunal.
It has been alleged that similar allegations against the said Member have been made earlier as well during his postings at Jodhpur, Lucknow, Agra etc but that on each occasion he has been “protected” by certain vested interests and that no inquiry was conducted into the allegations of corruption. It is also claimed that when senior members of the Bar met the said Member and requested him to conduct matters in a judicial manner, he became “more agitated and rude in his behavior and decided to unsettle the settled issues where his demand was not met and openly encouraged corruption and indulged in corruption”. It is also claimed that several representations and meetings with the Hon’ble President of the Tribunal have not met with any success and that the prestige of the Tribunal is now at risk.
