ETOs’ wings clipped
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 12
Realising that its excise and taxation officers were acting on their own while detaining goods of traders and imposing penalties, the Deputy Excise and Taxation Commissioner has issued orders asking ETOs to refer the matter to their seniors for enquiry and imposition of penalty.

The DETC in his recent letter to all officers has virtually “clipped the wings” of the ETOs. Quoting the Punjab General Sales Tax Act, 1948, the letter says the ETOs when detaining goods for verification, have to refer the matter to the Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner for the subsequent imposition of any penalty or an enquiry.
