Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has ordered for the construction of a new institution like Enforcement Directorate (ED) to curb financial fraud under the WB government.
The new agency has been named as Director of Revenue Intelligence and Enforcement. Some new posts have been created already. Primarily, 61 people have been included in this organisation.
This will work under the finance department. An IAS officer will be in charge if the Director of Revenue Intelligence and Enforcement. This has been decided in the cabinet meeting.
Tax defaults are reported several times in the state. The legal process used to catch them was a hectic one. Now this gets changed. If there is any accusation of tax defaulter, then the officials of this new agency can start an operation.
