    Breaking: Kamrup Metro DTO and three others suspended

    The occurrence of irregularities regarding the deposition of motor vehicle tax came to the notice of the Transport Department

    Guwahati: Assam Transport Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary on Monday has directed the Transport Department to place DTO Kamrup Metro and three others under suspension for irregularities in motor vehicle tax.

    The occurrence of irregularities regarding the deposition of motor vehicle tax came to the notice of the Transport Department. An inquiry was immediately conducted to look into the matter. It was discovered that tax evasion was being allowed by the DTO Kamrup Metro, wherein a vehicle owner could pay the current year tax by skipping the arrear. This was against the rules.

    Acting swiftly on the Transport Minister’s direction the Department has placed Arun Bora, DTO; Simanta Neog, Head Assistant; Arup Kumar Barman, Junior Assistant and Sidhheshwar Ranghang, Cashier, all employees of the DTO Office, Kamrup Metro, under suspension with immediate effect.

    The Transport Department has directed the Commissioner of Transport to conduct a detailed inquiry into the matter. The Department will recover the taxes wherever evaded, as all the data is available in the NIC database. Further, the Transport Department had a detailed meeting today with NIC authorities as they maintain the Vahan portal, and directed them to plug technical loopholes to prevent any such irregularities in future.
