Kejriwal slapped with fresh I-T notice on dues

Noted RTI activist Kejriwal earlier denied that he had violated any norms, while questioning the timing of the notice.



New Delhi: Team Anna member Arvid Kejriwal has been slapped with a fresh notice by the Income Tax Department, asking the former IRS officer to pay over Rs nine lakh in dues by this month-end.

Earlier, the Office of the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (CCIT) had on August five issued a notice to him in the case.

Sources said a fresh notice has been issued to Kejriwal, who, the department claimed, had violated bond clauses under which he went on a study leave for two years and asked him to deposit the money.

Kejriwal has now been asked to deposit the money by this month-end, sources said.
"Will reply appropriately," Kejriwal told reporters when asked about the fresh notice to him.

The dues had accumulated over the alleged violation of bond clauses under which Kejriwal, an Indian Revenue Service officer, had gone abroad on study leave for two years between November 2000 and 2002.

When the Delhi CCIT had written to him in 2007 and 2008 for clearance of his dues, Kejriwal had responded that they may be waived.
Kejriwal and other Hazare team members attacked the issuance of notice terming it as an action of the government`s "dirty tricks department" under instructions from political bosses.

Kejriwal has claimed that he did not "violate" any bond provisions and he had resigned from the job after the stipulated three years of rejoining duty following his study leave.
